“Great little hotel in perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

This is a great little hotel, a stones throw from the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. Bus from the airport comes right to the Rijksmuseum and it's easily walkable from there. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, spoke perfect English, and were happy to provide advice and directions about restaurants, transport etc. We stayed in a family room, just large enough for four (2 boys under 12), clean and comfortable if a little bit dated. It's on the expensive side - a good bit more than equivalent hotels we stayed at in Munich and Innsbruck - but so is everywhere in Amsterdam.

The hotel is located in a street close to the Van Gogh Museum. The building is very typical and placed in a nice and quiet position, easy to reach by tram which links this zone with the centre. The staff is always nice and ready to give information. The rooms are confortable and clean. The breakfast is good and adequate to the price.

This is a lovely family run hotel in the upmarket Museum Quarter of Amsterdam. Within easy reach of all the attractiions and a short walk from the Van Gogh museum etc, it really is ideally placed. Considering it's so central, it's also very quiet and peaceful, some of the rooms have balconies over the garden. The staff are friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and spacious, breakfast was a good choice and plenty of it in the attractive dining room. Free internet access in the cosy little bar. The only improvement I could think of would be tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.
Thanks for a lovely stay!

I Looked everywhere for a family friendly hotel and Here it is, They were able to put up to 4 beds in one room and it still felt like we could walk around, rooms are simple and clean and full baths . Breakfast was great and we loved the location, close to everything on a quite street.

Booked this hotel after an internet search and was a little scared how it would turn out.
Turned out to be an excellent choice. Great location, good transport connections, quiet street, Museums next door. Helpful friendly staff. Wi-fi.Despite some noisy Americans in the next room, could manage a decent night's sleep. :)

Will return unhesitatingly whenever next in Amsterdam.

Hotels are expensive in Amsterdam, and this hotel provides good value. The service was friendly, the breakfast was good, and the room was fine. It wasn't exactly spacious, but it was larger than some others we've had. There is free wifi in the downstairs bar area. The hotel is in a nice location near the Van Gogt Museum and the Riksmuseum and there are a lot of restaurants and things to do nearby.
