I have just returned after spending 3 nights at the Hotel Clemens, having booked it after reading previous reviews on here.
It is a wonderful hotel and was everything we had expected and more. I would highly recommend it ( and already have ) to friends who may travel to Amsterdam.
The initial stairs are steep but they carry up your case for you anyway.The hotel was refurbished in March 2012 and everything is clean, fresh and modern. We were made very welcome and given a coffee in tne lovely comfortable lounge area before going to our rooms. I had a single room at the back which was lovely& quiet. I didn't find it particularly small after all, the prices were small compared to many hotels. It was clean comfortable and the shower was to die for - I have never had such a powerful shower.
Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and had everything I would have wanted. It was also a really nice touch that you could have tea or coffee from the machine whenever you wanted.
Everybody we came across was friendly and helpful and would go out of their way to help you.
Lastly I can't forget Michael and Pussy, the gorgeous cats who live in the hotel and are always around for some fuss.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to go back again when I visit Amsterdam.
Just to note, the hotel website doesn't appear to have been updates since the refurbishemnt and they have 14 rooms as opposed to the 9 it states.
