“Quaint & Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

The Hotel Sint Nicolaas is in the perfect location with easy access to Amsterdam Centraal. We came in the winter, so we were very happy to be able to enjoy the cozy fireplace in the lobby! Our room was great and the staff was also great (we loved Jessica). As I typically stay in hostels, the hotel was a nice reprieve from the hostel life and we had a nice stay!

Location, at least five minutes walk from Centraal Station, the train station. 10 to 15 minutes walk to Dam Square, close to the Red Light District.
The hotel is just fine, a very small boutique hotel with an unusual decoration, very few rooms. Rooms are nice, mine was a bit cold, though. Bathrooms, just ok. No amenities. Breakfast is basic, but fine. If your budget is tight, this hotel is correct.

I stayed for a day at Sint Nicolaas last week. The location of the hotel is excellent - its only about 300m walk from the Amsterdam Centraal station. The staff, like other dutch people, is very friendly and cordial. Its a cosy little place with small rooms and a small lobby(with a fire place). The rooms are clean and comfortable - though the one i stayed in was small(bordering crampy). The hotel offers excellent WiFi connection(~15Mbps). All major attractions of the city(including a branch of Bull Dog) are within walking distance from this hotel.

My friend and I stayed at Hotel Sint Nicolaas for 3 nights and we enjoyed the first 2 nights. The staffs were nice and the room was clean and big. But the third day didn’t go too well for us. We had few problems with the room and the bathroom. The location was not too bad.

I think the building is impressive and location is great. You have a few good restaurants in the neighboorhood, but actually everything from hotel is on walking distance. Tram stop is around the corner as well, just like Central Station. From hotel you can walk to the Jordaan via the canal area, to the old town/red light district, Dam square, tourist boats etc.

Service is good, staff is nice. Breakfast is basic but good. The hotel is a bit dark, probably because there are not that many windows. As the furniture is quite dark too, it gets this dark interior. The biggest downside for us was the cleaning of the room or the lack of it. Beds were done, but if you opened them the sheets were not straightened, no vacuum cleaner has been in the room for the three days we were there and the same for the bathroom.

But we loved Amsterdam!!

This hotel is in an excellent location. The rooms are nice and clean, they are a little small though and could be brighter. The breakfast is good, nice coffee, the dining area is small though and you may find yourself waiting if you go during at peak time.
