“Old-styled, cosy, convenient eating places”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

This hotel is in a rather old building. We had a room on the top floor, that means climbing 5 to 6 flights of really steep stairs. I wouldn't recommend heavy luggage as there is no elevator. Room comes complete with an old school CRT TV. Staff are friendly and the hotel has a cosy feel.

There seems to be the smell of weed lingering around the air, not sure where it is from as it is supposed to be non-smoking.

The hotel is quite a distance from the train station and near many eating places and bars. Room rate is reasonable compared to the other rates in Amsterdam and comes with a basic breakfast.

Don't feed the cat, because it is overweight.

Don't expect a 5-star American hotel. This is a family-owned hotel. As far as I remember all rooms are non smoking. There is tea on every floor as well. Location is excellent! Hotels in Amsterdam are notoriously expensive, but this one is affordable. I love this city & I will go back eventually & this is where I plan on staying!

I had a very small room, smaller than my bathroom at home. Old and ugly furniture and bad smell in the room.

Price was also not that good, especially that they charged 20 euros more than booking.com showed. The guy from the reception didn`t want to charge the correct price.

The only good thing about the hotel is it`s location, but for sure I wont ever go back.

The price is really good for the location in the city centre close to bars restaurants etc. it is also very close to the bus stop from where you can get directly to the airport in ca. 40 min. The staff seem really friendly. I had a single room. Very small with tiny bathroom but clean and since you don't need to spend a lot of time in your room while in Amsterdam I think it was fine. Especially for this price. The stairs are indeed extremely steep so if you don't want to climb ask for the room on lower floors. Breakfast is ok but you don't have any choice what you get ( except for coffee or tea).

Arrived 2/20/13 and stayed here for 7 days. Great central location but very quiet . Friendly and helpful stuff. The room was small but with a big window overlooking a garden. Very clean. Breakfast was nice too and in overall great value to it's modest price. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay during their stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: As you well know the stairs in the Holland are very steep so I think the lower the better(:

Our room was not ready when we checked in; we waited over an hour. Sadly the room was on the top floor though I asked for a lower floor and the room was filthy. Management was horrible and did nothing to remedy the problem.
