We arrived at the hotel after a traumatic journey in the storms of 28 October 2013. Public transport was virtually non -existent and we had walked for two hours to get there. The instructions we had written down involved using public transport, so that wasn't very useful. This wasn't the fault of the hotel, of course, and we were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our room.

We were given a ground floor room. It was very unusual, long and thin, with a small lounge area at one end. There were three televisions in the room, including one in the ensuite bathroom. The bed was large and very comfortable. We needed help to work the coffee maker and I also asked if I could have a desk fan. Both requests were dealt with promptly and efficiently.

The location of the hotel is great, with the restaurants of Leidesplein only a few minutes walk away.

Unfortunately, I was awoken at 6.30am by the noise from the kitchen, I had not realised that our room was next door to the kitchen. My husband did not hear anything, but I am a light sleeper. As we had booked this short break to help me recuperate from an illness, I needed a quiet room to rest. Later that morning I asked if there was any chance of having a quieter room. I was told this would be no problem and to leave our luggage in our room and it would be moved by the time we returned from our walk.

When we returned to the hotel a few hours later, we were given keys to a room on the second floor. It was perfect, quiet, with a balcony and spa bath as well as walk in shower. In addition, there was a bottle of wine and a note from the staff. I was surprised at this as I had made no complaint about the first room at all, just asked if there was any chance of a quieter room. I was so impressed with how this was handled - in fact, the service was impeccable throughout our 5 day stay.

The hotel is friendly, clean, well-situated and staffed by well-trained, friendly and efficient staff. The hotel policies are geared towards the needs of the guests. We have stayed in other hotels in Amsterdam, but will always come back to this one now we have found it.

Room Tip: Room 18 is on the ground floor and close to the kitchen. This can be a bit of a problem first thing...

Stayed in hotel Roemer for 3 nights. Great location, walking distance to most of the main attractions yet tucked away in a quiet street. Rooms were very tastefully decorated as was the common area. Nice little lounge area for a quiet drink. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed in this hotel on a business trip to Amsterdam.

Converted from two 18th-century mansions, I was pleasantly surprised how intimate it was. The reception area doesn't have a check-in counter that one would normally expect from a hotel. Instead it's a desk with a computer manned by a helpful service staff, like the ones you'd have in your home study. The desk and computer that is, not the staff!

The lounge area has a fireplace, coffee table and sofa; nothing that would look out of place in a typical living room. And the restaurant, with a view of the private garden, has a few tables and chairs next to a bar counter. It feels almost like...home, really.

I stayed in the Small Double Room. Truth be told, the emphasis is on the word, Small. A mere 16-18 m2 of space, it might prove a challenge for bigger Europeans. Especially when you pull out the retractable flat screen TV. So watch your head when navigating around the room, especially in the dark. You have been warned.

Apart from that, everything else was pretty comfortable - clean firm bed, iPod dock at the bedside, Nespresso machine, bar fridge, good Wifi connection, (another) TV in the bathroom, and rain shower. Though the shower stall is rather on the tiny side; quite a squeeze to get through, to be honest.

Location-wise, it can't get any any better. The tram line is just a 2-min walk away. The famous and busy Leidseplein is just across that. Lots of restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, and cafes there that open till late, so great for after-work dinner and drinks. There's also a handful of canal cruise operators along the canal for those hankering for a bit of sightseeing on a boat.

Speaking of sightseeing, nearby attractions include Vondelpark, Concert Hall, Museumplein with Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Stedelijk museum.

Methinks I will be back. But perhaps the next trip, I'll opt for the bigger room!

I stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend for a couple of nights and we loved it. the rooms were very quiet, good size, great bath tub with jacuzzi! location is perfect as well, walking distance to the main attractions. Reception staff was friendly. Just one small drawback is the door that opens outwards, can be dangerous especially with rains on slippery steps that lead to the entrance. All in all was a great stay and would definitely come back.

Had a lovely long weekend except that it rained all weekend but the hotel made up for it. Great location and lovely decor but just a few niggljng issues. No chest of draws in our junior suite, blocked drain, faulty DVD player but overall lovely place to stay.

Stayed here the last week of September and were pleased. The room was upgraded as per previous recommendations and everything was great. The location was better than anticipated. Staff were very helpful.
Will stay again.

Room Tip: Room 27 if it is available
