Nice Hotel Perfect Location.
Reviewed 5 days ago

Booked into the hotel for 4 nights and was pleasantly surprised considering all the mixed reviews. Had a great room and the hotel is in the perfect location for Amsterdam sightseeing. Clean,decent sized room, nicely furnished and comfortable bed. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the bathroom could do with a little more cleaning. The shower stall is tiny, the curtain keeps sticking against your body and the floor floods when taking a shower. The staff were friendly and helpful. I did not try the restaurant as there are so many around the hotel that are much cheaper, but from appearance and the number of guests dining there, it looked to be a fairly popular choice.

Really nice

Such a beautiful hotel, rooms were nice & had everything you need. Right in the centre of Amsterdam, everything is only 5 minutes away and I actually found it to be quiet at night time, which I was surprised at. The only criticism I have is that staff aren’t exactly friendly and always seem quite annoyed.

Very bad service

Very bad service. Unhelpful checkin lady. Rude and unpleasant. Would not stay here again given all the options available in Amsterdam. There are too many options to choose a hotel with bad service in the center of Amsterdam

Seevice very slow. Poor when one considers the high cost of food on the menu. After waiting an hour and 15 mins for the main course it turned out the waiter forgot to order one of the main courses . Therefore all the side dishes and other main course had to go back to be kept warm while we waited for the missing course to he cooked. The waiter then said that I was disrespectful when I complained that the service wasn’t acceptable. Ok they took the cost of one main course off the bill but by then the evening was a let down as we ate so late. I certainly wouldn’t go back

Great location, friendly staff

You get what you pay for and I’m glad I paid a little more for this hotel.

The staff are extremely friendly and can offer advice n support if first timer.

The rooms are small but this is typical of Amsterdam being a city.

Each room has a navigation phone that you can take out while exploring the city.

The in house restaurant offer quality food and staff are excellent.

Well done to the management as you got this right.

I’ll be back
