“Great location”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

Within walking distance to many tourist sights and also pickup points for many tours and canal rides. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. It was stopover stay of 4 nights post cruise. Many eateries just outside the hotel. Clean and adequate facilities in room and bathroom.

Hotel location is within easy walking distance to the train station. Also near a couple of very good restaurants. Staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: Second floor room was quiet.

Semi budget hotel right smack in the middle of Amsterdam. Have stayed here several times and keep coming back, has to say something about the place. Hotel is in what was and old and beautiful bank. The staff is friendly and very helpful, and always on duty. Rooms are spartan, not large but up to date and very clean. They serve a nice and filling breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast along with the normal breads, yogurt and cold cuts you normally expect. The biggest positive is location, location, location. You can't ask for a better location right across the street from Dam Square. Lots of restaurants, shops, sights nearby and a short walk from Central Station (no need for a taxi as long as you didn't over pack). A solid three star hotel in a five star location.

Room Tip: You can easily walk here from the Central Station, and you can't really get lost doing so. Just...

I've lost count of how many times I've stayed at the Rho over so many years. I simply wouldn't even THINK of staying anywhere else.

Wonderful central location, but still quiet at night. Truly delightful staff at Reception. Huge and impressive buffet breakfast. Free wifi. Immaculately clean. Excellent value for money.

What more could anyone want?

Room Tip: The Hotel has had a programme of refurbishment: if you want a bath, rather than a shower, say so.

We were only in Amsterdam for three nights but the Rho was a great place to stay. It was right on Dam Square and close to transportation. Room was small but clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was wonderful. The only glitch was the water pressure in the shower (no tub). Maybe it was because we were on the fourth floor and I'm all for saving water but if I was getting my hair wet, my feet were dry. There was plenty of hot water but very low pressure.

This is ideally suited for tourists on a short stay and a budget. Its right on Dam square, though the flip side is that you get the noise from late night revellers on the square.
The facilities have seen better days. The interiors, lift and rooms look a bit worn and the room lighting needs improving. The telephone needed fixing and the wifi internet was not working for most of my stay. The service was friendly and breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, away from Dam Sq.
