exceptional service from ALL staff...no complaints, plan to stay again in the future. The breakfast each day during my stay was wonderful! It was located in an area convenient to transportation and sites. Our room was quiet, even though it was directly behind the front desk area (we had a room to accommodate 3 people). The staff made our stay a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to stay there again..loved it!!

Stayed here for our weekend in Amsterdam and weren’t disappointed. The hotel is maybe a 15 minute walk into the centre and ideally placed. Rooms were very clean and tidy and the lady at breakfast was very helpful. If you like omelettes then I recommend those. Nice place and would use again

Nice historic hotel

Nice historic hotel. Very clean rooms and helpful staff. Rooms are small but adequately furnished. Only about 25 minute walk down pretty streets over canals to the city center. After all the walking around the city it is nice to come back to the hotel for a hot shower and comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again.

Ideal for a short visit.

That's where we stayed for our long weekend in Amsterdam.
The location is really good, everything is within walking distance, and they also offer bicycle hire.
Rooms are nothing special, but comes clean with good sized bed, you might need to ask for extra pillow.
They have option for breakfast, which was brilliant, you could choose from different meats and cheeses, dairy products, freshly made eggs of your choice and tea and coffee.
Everything was delicious, and the staff were brilliant, very friendly and attentive.
You can come and go anytime you like, so i can only recommend this place if you would like to explore Amsterdam.

Stayed for 3 nights mid March. Basic hotel but had everything we needed. Rooms have ensuite and tea/coffee making facilities. Beds are wonderfully comfortable, shower adequate but could be better. Breakfast is fresh and cooked to order at 10 euros pp, offering omelettes, pancakes, cheeses, cold meats, cereals and croissants. Tram a 2 minute walk away. Would probably prefer to stay a little more central, however it wasn't a problem once you get the hang of the trams!
