The staff here at the hotel were great, all so friendly and helpful. They also all speak great english for any english people planning to stay there! The stairs were very steep (we were on the 2nd floor which wasn't too bad) but there are no lifts and so we wouldn't recommend it for people with walking difficulties. The location of the hotel is AMAZING!! its just off Dam Square and its in the centre of everything!
Our room and bathroom were very small but they were perfect as we didnt want to spend lots of time in the hotel. It also didn't really look anything like the pictures on their website! The bed in the room was also the comfiest bed I've ever slept in and the room was cleaned every day by the maids. However, there was only one window which only opened a slight bit which didn't let very much fresh air in so if it hadn't of been for the fan that was in our room we probably wouldn't have been able to stick it as it was so warm in the room constantly (especially when someone had a shower!) Another thing was that in the mornings the cleaners in the hotel were very very noisy and so we were woke up by that every morning at about 9 or half 9!
Despite this we would definitely stay here again as we found this hotel to be great for what we wanted and it was right in the centre of everything. The staff at reception were all great, really really friendly, polite and helpful!
Would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a great hotel in the centre of Amsterdam!
