Reviewed 12 August 2010

I must say that style-wise, the hotel seems a bit nicer in pictures, or alternatively we were simply unlucky with our room which was not warm and light like in many of the photos, but perhaps a bit overly trendy with a huge bright red wall. It was also very small for a junior suite even in big city standards, this being their largest room option.

that said, it provided a comfortable stay and the service was always excellent. We were pleasantly surprised when our rate included breakfast and complimentary food and drinks throughout our stay. The lobby is cozy and the patio is really nice.

One downside was the fact that from 7AM onwards, we could smell grease in our 3rd floor room. I assume this was from the kitchen as they were preparing breakfast, but why it came all the way to our room, I don't know. Another minor downside was the fact that the only way to enter the hotel is by ringing a door bell, after which they ask for both your room number and last name which you need to yell on the street. this is a bit awkward, if they want to be so secure, why not have a system where you can open the main door with a room key?

overall, I found the hotel to be quite pleasant, and the pricing through Tablet was reasonable. the location is pretty good, a quick walk from a number of places but just far enough from the chaotic Leidseplein.

A success from the moment we were able to get a parking space right outside the door of the hotel. The entrance and reception are small and don't give the best first impression but the room we had, in the basement, was spectacular. Plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 small kids. Large bathroom with a twin shower (yes, two showers in the same space). The room came with a Nespresso machine and coffee pods. Our check-in lady was close to unfriendly however by the time we exited our room she had been replaced by a much more friendly lady and all other staff we saw were great. Location is really 5mins walk from the Rijksmuseum and Leidseplein where there are lots of restaurants. The price was in line with what I'd expect to pay for a hotel at this location at this time of year. Breakfast was sufficient without being spectacular. I'd definitely return

We liked the location, the tie in with nearby hotel Vondel for an excellent dinner, a good breakfast at the Roemer, the design of the hotel, drinks included in the room rate and helpfulness of the staff
We however thought given the somehwat smaller size of room it might have been better to provide a smaller double bed to create more walk around space in the room

Some minor flaws which however were quickly remedied after we asked were only on etowel for two people and a room safe that initially did not work
These things can happen in any establishement;what is important is how quickly they get fixed and on that score we were quite happy

This was a great hotel. It was within walking distance to everything, but far away not to be too noisy. It is all inclusive, comes with alcohol :-), light snacks and breakfast every morning. Cute garden and friendly staff. On recommendation is not to stay in the room next to kitchen though!

Situiated on a nice quiet street in a nice location, Hotel Roemer is a small but friendly hotel. Rooms are large, with ample size bathrooms. The rooms were exceptionally clean. Their backyard garden was a nice place to relax with a drink after a long day of exploring the city. Located near some of the best museums in the city. Did not use their Breakfast service.

Some rooms are below grade but have windows that supply sufficient light.

The staff could not have been nicer, the location was exceptional and the room was clean, quiet and very comfortable. The outdoor terrace was an added bonus.
When I travel to Amsterdam again, I will definitely book this hotel. It really was remarkable!

My wife and I only stayed 2 nights which was a shame. We spent 4 weeks in Europe and this was the best place we stayed in. The room was great, service fantastic and location perfect. We have spent time in Amsterdam before now we don't have to look for hotels in Amsterdam as we will be back....
