“Overpriced and very basic - no AC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Nice staff - no facilities - no air con, as a result one needs to have windows open, and due to excellent location it is very very noisy till 5am!! Ok if you are partying not if it's a business trip!

Everything was perfect . Location - the best, practically on Dam square and not far from railway station Amsterdam Centraal. Room - big enough, clean and quiet (inside yard view) , very good bathroom with a new equipment. And wi-fi in the room was excellent .
There are elevator, luggage room (free) and tea- and coffee machine (1 euro) at the hotel. Good quality breakfast. And special thanks to the hotel's staff.

Superb location... An excellent breakfast which sent us out every day with quite a satisfied tummy. Staff was very helpful. We were in Amsterdam in another hotel on the first half of our stay and at RHO the second half. When we asked if we could just leave the luggage till check in time they straightaway let us check in at 10 in the morning without making us wait. Comfy beds. Wifi was a tiny bit too slow. Only thing is room was a bit noisy. We could hear the shuffling of the feet from room above and when the neighbours used the toilets. As everyone goes out day and night noisy room was not a very big issue. Maybe we should have asked for quieter room. Other than that it was a very good stay at RHO.

Overall our stay at the Rho Hotel was a positive one.

The good:

Ideal location
Courteous and attentive staff (most of the time)
Decent room
Decent breakfast
We asked for a quiet room when we booked, and were given one.

The bad:

The free wifi did not work in my room (very inconvenient)

One of the people at the front desk was quite rude and abrupt about the check out time of 11am, when I arrived in the lobby at 11:30am on a Monday morning. This was surprising and I did not appreciate being scolded like a child, and this negatively affected my impression of what was otherwise a reasonably positive experience.

Would I stay here again? Possibly, but I would also look around a little more to see if there were other preferable options in a similar price range.

Room Tip: ***Some of the rooms require guests to pass through the underground garage from the lobby, so I woul...

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.
