“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Having walked out of our originally booked hotel - which was awful, we found the Sint Nicolaas, we were given a lovely room looking out to the town, the room was spotless, bathroom large with plenty of boiling hot water and again very clean, the staff could not have been anymore helpful from the gentleman who showed us our room down to the night security guard. The breakfast was also very good you could eat as much as you wanted. The reception/bar area had a great roaring fire which made the whole atmosphere so friendly. Every room was given a bottle of champagne to celebrate New Year - nice touch. The rate was good, it included breakfast and tax and was less money than the 'awful' hotel which did not include either of these items, it was only a few minutes walk from all the celebrations of New Year, we would 100% recommend this hotel.

We had no problems with anything during our stay here. The rooms were big enough, the breakfast was good, the location excellent and the service brilliant. The beds were amongst the best hotel rooms we have stayed in. What more can I say?

The hotel is located in a good central location however the room had a bit of a strange smell. For the price the room was just average. Also the service was terrible. We had a guest come to our room just wait while we were heading out to get ready but the front desk kept calling us telling us the guest had to leave... We were quite adults making no noise.... I have never had this problem with anyother hotel. Also one of the attendants at the front-end counter was also very rude. For the price I would not reccomend this hotel mainly because of the service levels and rudeness of one of the attendants.

Reviewed 5 December 2011

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews on trip advisor. It was only 5 minutes walk from the central train station (where the train from the airport arrives). Funky modern decor, lots of black and silver. The reception area has comfy sofas and a roaring fire, breakfast area and computers with internet connection. Our room (number 11) was a three person room on the first floor, decorated mostly in black which looked nice but with the poor lighting made it difficult to see anything! The bathroom was a little in need of upgrading but acceptable. Breakfast (included in the price) was continental style with a good selection of fresh food and very good coffee. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke perfect english. They were happy to help with maps and suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants etc. The location is about ten minutes walk from Dam square, main shopping areas, picturesque streets and canals etc. All in all a good location for a city centre break.

Reviewed 31 October 2011

I really enjoyed my experience at the Hotel Sint Nicolaas. The room was great and a decent size for Europe. The bed was comfy. I was on the third floor which was purple and had photos of Marilyn Monroe in the hall and in my room. Each floor had a different decor. The hotel staff were really great as well. They helped us book a fantastic dinner cruise and were always friendly and welcomed us with a smile and a hello at all hours of the day. The breakfast was great (and included which is key) and served until 10 am.

The location couldn't be better. A main walking street that takes you right to The Dam is two seconds away from the hotel. Central Station is also about a 5 minute walk which is super convenient if you're taking the train in and/or out of the city like we were.

I would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed 28 July 2011

This is a very stylish, if dark, hotel. The continental breakfast was very good. On the downside, we were in a triple and the double bed were two singles pushed together which wasn't conducive to snuggling. The bedside lamp was very dim - bring a reading light if you like to read in bed. The first night we were in another room (triple wasn't available yet), where I woke up with a bug bite. The worst was finding the maid's master key on my son's bed and wondering how often that happens - we could have cleaned out lots of rooms if we weren't the moral upstanding citizens we are.
