Great location and helpful staff. Our room was rather small, but very clean. I really liked the breakfast, which was very varied and simply excellent. Pillows were possibly made of stone and the TV did not work at first, but overall, I really enjoyed staying there.
This hotel is always my first choice for a long weekend in Amsterdam. I've stayed here many times over the years, the staff are always friendly an happy to see me. Big bonus for Doria is that it's close to everything and it has smoking rooms.
Surprised on the bad side in view of positive reviews in Tripadvisor.
Small rooms, smell of canabis, not so friendly staff, and all five nights the same breakfast. What makes the hotel attractive despite all of this-its location juston side of Damsquare.
The Doria is a small hotel in the centre of Amsterdam just off Dam Square. It is quite basic but clean and very friendly staff. It is close to restaurants, shops, Red Light District (a must see) and Amsterdam Central train station. It is above an itallian restaurant but we did not notice any smells or noise. You will receive 10% discount on your meal in the restaurant and at the excellent Mexican across the road. Breakfast is typical continental consisting of meats, cheese, salads, hard boiled eggs, bread and preserves - more than enough to set you up for the day. There is a lift, computer for guests use and free wi-fi.
To get to the Doria from Schiphol Airport catch the train to Amsterdam Central (3 stops about €4). Follow the signs to Dam Square less than a 10 minutes walk. Damstraat is a street on the top left of the square. Very easy to find. Everyone speaks english which put us to shame but meant we had no problem asking directions. A real gem of a find, I would definately reccomend staying here.
