This hotel is cosy, with decent sized rooms and comfy beds. It's transport links are great with a €17 bus / tram pass that allows you to use all metro links in Amsterdam for three days. However, in the evening the outside of the hotel turned a bit dark, I went outside for a cigarette tonne greeted with young boys...

Friendly and helpful reception staff, plenty of shops and restaurants within minutes walking distance, transport links close by, decent size rooms, seemed to be quiet enough although maybe it was us making the most noise! :) I've paid more for worse in Amsterdam!

It was very quiet-just what we like. No drunkeness or unsociable behaviour. The room was very clean and the beds very comfortable. There was everything we needed including a kettle and tea and coffee. We didnt have dinner but the breakfast was excellent and value for money. We will be back! Amazing transport

Blue square hotel: normal sized studio rooms. We requested a double bed and got 2 singles next to each other Was ok with this as expected on a Contiki stay. Easy to find. Would recommend staying here if on a budget. Buffet breakfast was great good options. Bathroom was pretty good.Overall happy. 3.5 stars for me.

i stayed for one night as solo traveller. The room is big, very clean, well organized. i didn't like the area, the city center is a bit far. I found that it's bit overpriced for the location and the services they offer.

The room was clean and the wifi was pretty good. The hotel is located not too far from the city center. It is about 20-25 min tram or bus ride to Centraal. There are several stops nearby, which make it a convenient location to get to most places.
