Let's be fair, The location of the hotel is excellent. a step from dam square with great public transit access. also the staff was friendly and welcoming, especially Brendan. the hotel is clean with a nice lobby. those are the reasons (in decsinding order) this hotel is only poor rather then terrible
On the (very) down side, the hotel room we stayed in was terrible, it has no inadequate space for 2 persons travelling for more then 1 day and was not quiet.
We booked for a double room for 5-days and the room was tiny. tiny - not compact. no room to open a suitcase, not a big one even, so tiny that we had to take out the chair in order to use that space. the tiny space caused for it to be in constant mass. Due to the space limitation the bath room is not well designed, there was no paper toilet hanger, which added up to our annoyment of the room.
We did not hear any noise from dam square outsize however little noises from the hall and the adjacent room was heard. we heard foot steps from the hall and even an alarm clock vibration from the adjacent room (!) almost every night we were waken up by noises. Hard sleepers will probably not suffer from it as much as we did as the noises were not load rather more annoying
another little annoying things were the shower that was difficult to set the water in and the sink that was stuck, but we let it slide without notifying the stuff that we realized to be incapable of changing our room due to high capacity.
On the 3rd day, when we were marred by the room size we asked how much would it cost to upgrade to a bigger room. we were told we should ask to change a room on the next day. on the next day we were told there is no bigger rooms available. we were very close to leave an hotel for the first time of our lives, but decided to stay for there was only 1 more night left.
I would not recommend someone to make the mistake I did and book this hotel even though it is cheaper then other accommodation option.
