Reviewed 14 May 2014

We had booked in advance and having arrived early afternoon we were given a choice of rooms which was great. Chose a twin bedded, quiet room overlooking the little garden. Small room but extremely comfortable beds and good en-suite facilities. Great continental breakfast. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Corridors could do with a lick of paint, but then who lingers in corridors?!

Room Tip: Get there early.

6 of us stayed, two double rooms and two singles, all on the basement level which looked out onto garden. The two doubles were fine in a relatively modern two storey extension, not massive but comfortable, clean and everything worked. Corridors a bit jaded but not a problem. The two singles were not as good. Both were small and affected by noise either from the lift shaft or by staff starting work early. Also a dish washer or similar started at about 5 in the morning. If you are taking a single room do some checking first and if you are a big person let them know!
Breafast was good and the service at reception effusive . Well located within easy reach of trams to the Centre, lovely park 5 mins walk away and Museumplein similar distance.

Room Tip: Some of the showers are small and not suitable for large people; reception was very helpful and ensu...

I was here for three nights. Two of us. We got a renovated room (number 40). It was not in basement, nice view. Actually, room is small, but it has everything you need. Bath is very good, nice shower, hot water.

The breakfast was much better than I really expected. Bread, butter, cheese, chocolate pasta, original orange juice, coffee machine, fruit salad.

Location is the best about this hotel. Few minutes from Leidseplein, and cca 20 min to the Dam (capital square) by walking. You can also take a tram. Vondel park is few min by walking.

If you are travelling by plain (Schiphol airport), remember to take a red bus number 197 (single journey - 5 E per person), which will take you directly to the Leidseplein. Then you will see a big Marriott hotel, go straight, and easily you will find the hotel. This way of transport is much more practical than train to the Central Station, then tram to the Leidseplein.

The staff is very kind. They also gave us a map of the city. I recommend this, cause of the location, clean rooms, nice breakfast and price was also ok. We paid 278 E (nonrefundable reservation).

Room Tip: Ask if it is possible to get a renovated room.

We had a very comfortable one-night stay at Prinsenhotel. It's only a few minutes walking to Vondelpark, Leidseplein and Museumplein. Only the carpets in the hallway need to be renewed. The breakfast was nice, great coffee! The single room was very small, the double with garden view very nice.

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel: the room was large enough for three people, there was an elevator, free wifi, the breakfast was excellent (I still miss the orange juice!). Location was fine too, the 1 tramway took us every day to Dam Square. I would come again to this place if I returned to Amsterdam.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Good location, close to Vondelpark and the museums, and a 20 minute walk to Dam Square, and all the attractions closer to the city. Helpful, friendly staff, and Jack the resident cat was a real bonus. Room was a very small double but spotlessly clean. Continental breakfast each morning was fine for us, cereals, toast (different breads and rolls), good selection of jams, etc. I'd have no problem in recommending this hotel and returning to it.
