Reviewed 11 December 2013 via mobile

The location of this hotel is very central yet is tucked away on a side street so had a lovely peaceful nights sleep. Loved the look and feel of the hotel. Beautiful lobby. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Nothing felt too much trouble. Breakfast was lovely. Only issue with breakfast was that we couldn't find any teaspoons. Rooms nice and spacious. Stayed in room 211. Only problem with the room was no tea/coffee making facilities! Will definitely stay here again.

Thank you RHO for a lovely stay.

Stayed here as part of a group celebrating a birthday on the 29th and 30th November. The hotel is in a great location on Dam Square and is clean and spacious if slightly dated and basic for €140 per night. The breakfast was great too.The main problem we encountered on our second night was very disturbing and the staff attitude and manner left a lot to be desired. My friend and I returned to our room at 4.30pm for a nap and to have a shower before dinner. Luckily we did and luckily I set my alarm and was awake because a man let himself into our room (218) and I found him in the process of either attempting to steal a ghd hair straightener or attempting to take the safe from the bottom of the wardrobe which was were the straightener happened to be left. Either way to wake to find a man in our room was terrifying and luckily he just left when confronted. The male receptionist questioned us in a very hostile manner and seemed to imply that we must have left the door open which i assured him we did not. We were treated like two hysterical fantasists and let me be clear we are not teenagers and were not under the influence of any substances. The lock was eventually changed on our room but afterwards I could not relax nor enjoy the night as I was certain this man somehow had access to a master key card to enable him to open our door. We reported all this again the next morning and once again were dealt with in an off hand manner. None of the day staff were aware of the incident the night previousy. I was informed there is no cctv although there is a camera above the door into reception. Nobody seemed bothered to check this although I gave a very good discription of the man to them. Having read the review previous to mine about someone s room being broken into and their lock also not disturbed, and this happened the wednesday prior to our break in, I can only conclude that the hotel has a serious problem. Someone is gaining access to their rooms and yet they do not care one bit! I advise people to stay here only if they have nothing of value to leave in the room or they plan on carrying their possessions with them. FYI the hotel safes are not screwed down which is pointless to me as they obviously can be carried off in a rucksack which our intruder had on his back! Single women beware. Very disappointing experience and not once did one person apologize to us.

We stayed at this hotel in September and it was a great place to spend a night in Amsterdam. It is in a great location right next to Dam Square and close to all of the attractions, close to the metro and trolley. The free breakfast was very good. The lobby is an old theater and is very beautiful. The rooms are basic, but adequate. Service and front desk staff very helpful.

Four of us stayed at the Rho Hotel in two twin rooms. The hotel is located just off Dam Square in the heart of Amsterdam, so a wonderful location from which to explore. The rooms were spacious and very clean, comfortable and quiet. The bathrooms are a little 'old style' but nonetheless clean. The room did not have any tea or coffee making facilities which would have been good, but there is a vending machine in the foyer (which did not work when we were there but the staff very kindly made us complimentary coffee) . The staff at this hotel are fabulous! They are very welcoming and provided us with some excellent restaurant recommendations. The breakfast (both hot and cold)was varied and plentiful. The Rho Hotel was recommended to me by a friend and having stayed there I would highly recommend it to others also.

It is unsecured hotel since the whole safe which was inside my room had been stolen at the time when I was out of the hotel !!! In addition to my laptop and other valuable stuff.

Moreover ,the manager of the hotel told us that they are not responsible for this incident !!!! although the room's door was not broken !!!

TAKE CARE

Friendly desk staff and cleaners; good cooked breakfast; helpful staff; good clean room for one (single traveller). Will definitely come back - pity no evening restaurant, but spoiled for choice nearby - The Lobby is five minutes walk away

It is difficult for me to properly evaluate this hotel as it was great for some aspects and poor for others. Therefore, I prefer to make a list of pros and cons.

Pros:
- "5-star" location
- rooms were very clean
- excellent breakfast
- computer and printer freely available in the hall of the hotel
- hotel staff was very kind

Cons:
- my room was extremely noisy starting from 7am
- in my room the Wi-fi signal was so weak that very often there was no possibility to connect to internet at all
- my room was very cold and there was no possibility to increase the temperature inside it
- turning off the light of the room automatically turn off all plugs in the room; thus there was no possibility to charge electronic devices during the night
