“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Amsterdam. It's location is great, only a few minutes walk to Van Gough museum and centre. Room although small was clean, modern and well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast hit the spot!

We stayed at Hotel Expresso for 4 nights. We were on the 6th floor - the room had a nice view of the city. The biggest plus of the hotel is that it is close to (walking distance) all the major attractions - the shopping district, the museum district, Vondelpark, the red light district. We walked everywhere from the hotel. The room was clean, small and basic. Compared to the prices of the other hotels (eg NH, Marriott, etc), this was much better value for money. If you are after a basic place to stay in (it had a bit of a "hostel" feel to it - very rudimentary / basic furniture and service) - then this is the place for you. There is also access to free coffee and teas in the lobby anytime.

We stayed here for two nights last week and enjoyed our stay greatly ! Free coffee from the espresso machine downstairs when ever we wanted it and a decent continental breakfast if you fancy it in the morning.

Yes the rooms are not massive but to people complaining about size, hey, it was clean well decorated and had a great shower!

Good location, pleasent staff, free wi-fi i will be coming again.

Room Tip: we stayed in 506 quiet central room

This was a very nice hotel. It was clean and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Located in a nice part of Amsterdam close to just about everything with good tram connections. Would definately stay there again.

My husband and I went to Hotel Espresso for our honeymoon and were incredibly disappointed. The only good thing about this place is the location which is a 10 minute walk to the center. The lock on the bedroom door didn't work, the are unpleasant white stains all over the dark purple curtains, and the room is so small that you can't open the bathroom door without hitting the bed! The shower and sheets also had numerous hairs on them from previous guests. The receptionist is incredibly rude, she didn't even bother to look up from the computer screen to check us in, didn't tell us about breakfast (which is also pretty grim for 9.50 euros- can't even get a cup of tea as they've run out of tea bags) or tell us how to get to our room or where the lift was. I would never come back and I would strongly dissuade any other travelers from staying here.

Room Tip: Just don't stay here.

Thank you for your comments. Your experience does not meet our standard at all and I felt shocked. I have taken measures immediately. The person who helped you works here as trainee. Constant performance is a challenge and your comment shows me that constant performance for trainees is a hugh challenge. We will put even more effort in teaching them.

Hotel Espresso is located close to the museums and the Leidesplein. It is clean and comfortable with a good elevator. Do not be fooled by anyone saying reservations are not needed for hotel parking. Street parking is very expensive and the hotel parking is limited. Make a reservation if you wish to avoid a long walk from a lot or the exorbitant price of parking on the street. Service was uneven with some personnel super friendly and helpful and others surly and uncooperative.

This hotel is well located in the city of Amsterdam. Check-in was fast and friendly and we were given a map of the cityy which got us off to a flying start. The rooms are small and we swapped ours with our teenage daughter for a larger one with a wet room and separate toilet and wash-hand basin. The beds were clean and comfortable and there was tea/coffee making facilities in the room. There was also tea/coffee available at reception 24/7. We didnt have breakfast in the hotel. If you turn right out the door of the building and go up a couple of premises, there is a wonderful coffee shop called "Over Taart" that serves delicious breakfasts. It is family run and we ordered for two and had ample for three. We were also given a free sample of home-made cake to try. They also do evening meals. To your left when you leave the hotel, round the corner and across the bridge, there is an Irish pub called "Aran" that also does heart breakfasts with a "Cead Mile Failte" thrown in for free! Next to this pub is a bicycle hire shop where you can arrange to go on organised bike tours out into the country. Five doors approx. from the hotel to your right there is another bike hire shop where you can hire bikes also. One of the most exciting finds in the city is "The Beginhof" - it comprises a hidden inner court that dates around 1300 with typical Amsterdam style houses. The Beginhof has a fascinating history with many historical events and even miracles having taken place throughout the centuries. Opening hours are 9-5 pm daily. Artis Zoo is also worth a visit if you run out of things to do.
