“Great hotel”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Really good hotel, friendly staff and great rooms. Little way from the centre, but easy to get to to by tram. Staff was really helpful and friendly, would definitely stay in this hotel again. Room was big and very clean and facing away from the street - nice breakfast shops down the street

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

We stayed in a jr. suite room for 4 people. Aesthetically the room is very modern, clean and appealing with very nice decor. Size wise it is a bit small. We had 2 double beds put together as the main bed and a sofa bed for our 2 kids. Not too much space left in the room when the sofa bed was open. The bathroom was small as well with little space for 2 people at the same time but with all required amenities: toilet, shower, sink, and heated floors. Free Wi-Fi is offered and the hotel breakfast is fresh and with good options. The hotel location is excellent with tram and public transportation around the corner and within 15-20 min walking to the main attractions (Jordaan district and City Center). There are many good restaurants to choose from around the hotel. The hotel has a parking garage available for €25 a day that is a good option if you are taking your car. DO NOT USE THE CAR IN THE CITY. In overall, we had a very good stay and I recommend the hotel mainly due to the location and modern appeal.

Room Tip: Rooms tend to be a bit small

My girlfriend and I stayed in a 'small double' room here for 4 nights. The hotel is well located, within a short walk of some lovely cafes and restaurants. Slightly further away (approx 10 minute walk) is Leidseplein with its bars and shops. The room was quite small, with the double bed being pushed up against the window and having only one bedside table. We had a ground floor room, which looked out onto a footpath and the car park entrance, therefore we felt it necessary to keep the curtains closed so that passers by couldn't look into the room. The room was clean and well equipped, with free wifi (which was fast and reliable) and tea/coffee making facilities.

We didn't try the hotel breakfast since we felt €15 was too much to pay, especially as we were able to buy breakfast from the nearby Vlaamschbroodhuys bakery for around half that price.

Thank you for your review and feedback. We really appreciate this. You booked a small which is also our smallest room. The size, 15m2, is communicated via every channel so all our guests are aware of the size. If you prefer a bigger room and also a room on a higher floor I would like to recommend the penthouses. They also have their own private terrace. However we are happy to hear that you liked the room and facilitities.
The breakfast is €15,50, but if you book up front you can book it for €12,50. Just a tip from our side. We would love to welcome you back when you are going to visit Amsterdam again.

The rooms are not spacious, but they have everything you need, except for the bathroom, I didn't find the toiletries I'm used to find in there, like toothbrush, toothpaste,etc.
But, as I said in the title, it is really well located, VERY clean and the rooms are modern.
If I had to go back, I would definitely stay here... Although I would ask for a smile to the staff (don't misunderstand me, they were polite, but I would have appreciated an smile... just saying).

Thank you for writing a review. We really appreciate this as it helps us to keep improving our service. Your feedback about the toiletries is taken very seriously and all our rooms have amenities: shampoo, soap, showergel, showergel and a vanity kit. Our penthouses have extra bodylotion. For thoothpaste and toothbrush you can always call the reception and they will provide you these items. I forwarded the review to entire staff so they are aware of the comment about the smile. We discussed this with our team and we will pay attention to this. It was not on purpose and we find this really import. We are looking forward to welcome you back!

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room was stylish and well equipped. The bathroom was especially nice with good quality toiletries and under floor heating. (lovely in the middle of the night!) The large bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Free Wi-Fi is also offered.
The staff from reception to room servicing were all friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of information cards that also gave you a discount on lots of things to do. It is only a short walk to catch a tram into the centre, but also a very pleasant walk along the canals that will take you to the same areas. Would stay here again and recommend to any travellers.
The hotel does provide breakfast at an extra cost, but we did not try this, however it did look to have a good choice available.

Thank you very much for you nice comments and recommendation. We are always pleased to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay. Don't hesitate to book breakfast next time. If you pre-book it you will receive a discount. If you first want to try it you could also decide upon arrival and experience the breakfast first.
Really looking forward to welcome you back to our hotel.
