“Excellent hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Stayed at the hotel with 2 of my colleagues during the trade show, METS. Location is 5 minute walk to the Centraal Station where we could get the tram to the RAI. Hotel rooms were a good size, clean and equipped with everything required, even had a radio docking station which charged my phone! The breakfast is more limited but there is enough choice and as it is included in the hotel room, can't complain! Staff were friendly and very helpful.

Having stayed in a 5* hotel on a previous visit, I found this hotel just as good! Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

We decided to stay over for a night in Amsterdam while on a 'Dutch dash' from the UK, and are so glad we chose to stay here.
From booking, the staff were very helpful, corresponding via e-mail about a possible early check in. This was not needed however as they have somewhere you can leave your bags until your room is ready. The hotel was really easy to find, and the central location made it convenient after being dropped off outside the central station.
When we got to our room I was pleasantly surprised (after staying in paris and knowing what city centre hotel can be like); the hotel decor is lovely and our room continued this. The room size is small, but there was plenty of room to move around. Room contained a double bed, side table with two chairs, bedside cabinets, TV and side cabinet also. En-suite was clean and spacious with shower/bath and stand alone sink.
Our room was on the main street however the majority of the street noise was blocked out by the windows and heavy curtains.
Breakfast included was a standard continental with lots of options available.
Overall I am extremely happy with this hotel, you could want nothing more from a city centre hotel designed to be a base for your sightseeing in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: room on the street can be noisy if windows open (but expected due to traffic passing by)

Stayed in Hotel 08-11 Nov 13, Great Location, good size room and bathroom. Breakfast was continental style but very good choice available. Booking in at the reception was very easy and well organised. Very good hotel to stay in.

Located about a 5 - 10 minute walk from Centraal Station, in the middle where the nieuwzijdsburgwal and spui split and just south of the Haarlemerstraat pedestrian shopping street.

Especially for the time of year right after queensday. I managed to get a great room.
Friendly,professional staff & knowledgable staff, refined lobby, even nice art. Good sized room for the price and location esp for Amsterdam.

Just got back from staying at the Sint Nicolaas in Amsterdam and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It's a very cosy hotel and spotlessly clean, our room was lovely, gorgeous curtains and I had the best nights sleep in a long time as the beds were so comfy. The bathroom was amazing too, like home from home!!
It's the perfect location right on top of Dam Square, so everything is in walking distance and the train station is over the road.
Brilliant!!

Hotel location is perfect for walking around also for travelling around. Our room was spacious, with charm, cosy beds, very big bathroom. Breakfast is very basic, same every day. When you ask for something staff is polite, but they are not trying to be too friendly, and that is OK for me. There is an elevator what seems to be big advantage in Amsterdam hotel.
