“A place to rest your head ... but not much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

I think there I'd a wide variety of standards of Best Western hotels globally. This one sits at the the basic end. Location is great, behind the Leidseplein but in a quiet neighborhood street. Room and interior of hotel needs updating. I didn't pay extra for breakfast do can't comment on that.

The hotel is very well located in a calm neighborhood but at the same time close to the center, Schiphol Airport, and some museums. The room I stayed, though, was small and with a very small bathroom. Breakfast was not included, but is well served, and the staff was helpful.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

Stayed here with my daughter for 4 nights last week. I have to say it didn't look great from outside with the blue plastic covering but was fine inside. We were given a room on the top floor that just looked on to the roof covering but as it was so hot last week it meant we could have the large window open all the time and not be overlooked. Room was tiny but had very comfy beds, our tv was replaced by a new very large flatscreen version on the second day, they were putting these in all the rooms that day. One tip, if you are of a prudish disposition or are with small children be careful when chanel hopping! No air-con but a large efficient fan is provided in the room. Good small bathroom, very clean, good toiletries. Staff friendly. Very good location close to Leidse square but on a quiet street. Handy for bus 197 which runs to and from the airport every 15 mins. Would stay here again.

I picked this hotel for my hen do as I wanted something away from the centre and noise, I was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully located it was to Leidse Square, but tucked away down a lovely tree lined street. The check in staff were so helpful, and the bar man was the friendliest guy ever. We stayed in the basement room and had four in our room, it was big enough and very clean, however a tad noisy, and the telly had numerous channels but played the same thing on each channel ? my other friends stayed in double rooms on the first floor and they were impressed with their rooms too. All in all a great priced hotel, in a fabulous area (literally round the corner from the buses, trams and canal boats) would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a clean, no frills hotel in a great location. ;o)
