Could not have picked a better location alongside the lovely canals that wind through this beautiful city. The staff could not have been more accomodating and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Arrived early morning Saturday and were offered a room without having to drop our luggage and return. The room was more than adequate for an overnight stay or longer, clean, warm and modern with tea and coffee making facilities, although we preferred taking coffee in the lounge overlooking the canal . My daughter and I were in the city for 2 days for the Christmas markets, wonderful atmosphere day and until late at night. We were gobsmacked as we walked out onto the street at night with the beauty of the homes all lit up and the bridges!! We took a cocktail cruise which is not to be missed to take in the central canals. Baggage store was a big advantage at the hotel as we weren't leaving the city until late on the Sunday.
For a comfortable stay with hospitality at its best and central location, The Times Hotel cannot be beaten for value for money!!
We would definitely stay here again!

The Times Hotel was excellent.. great location right on one of the many canals and close to everything. Great room, small however we felt like we where in Van Gogh's room as the whole wall was the painting of his room :) They offer breakfast for a fee we ate out, there's so much to see and do in Amsterdam you just want to get out there...
We had a few drinks out the front with a little platter and it was so relaxing after riding bikes around all day.
The Black Bike's where great we tagged along with a few other bike tours and found our way around very easily. Great atmosphere great customer service and all round awesome experience. Van Gogh's Museum and Anna Frank Haus are a must. Red light district is a definite... The Times will definitely see us back again.

The Times is in a great location - no question. But the rooms are very small - and the pictures on the website are misleading at best. Cramped is the best word to describe them. We felt one room had basicailly been made into two. The shower/bathrooom areas are very basic and tired. Overall we felt the whole place could do with some rennovation. Staff also not that friendly/helpful, and prices pretty high for what you get.

The positives are the lovely friendly staff and the great location. You are made to feel welcome and all the major sights are walking distance away.
However, i found the rooms to be cramped and a bit dirty really. There was a seal missing from our shower door so the bathroom became a swamp. They could also do with putting a Hoover around the room!
I was also disappointed with the price of a bottle of water from the hotel- 5 euros!
All in all, a good stay in what could be a lovely boutique hotel- just need to make a bit more effort with the rooms.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front for a view of the canal.

Great for our purposes. We like smaller hotels that are updated, modern, and friendly. This met the bill! This was a last minute booking for us the night before we left Europe. We stayed at an awful hotel in Amsterdam earlier on our trip and during that period, we walked by the Times and it looked interesting. We walked in, made a reservation and it turned out to be a great experience. I only wish we could have spent more time there.
