Have just had a four day stay at this hotel and was very impressed. Had a warm welcome from Melanie on reception and staff were very well informed about buses/travel etc etc. Rooms comfortable and clean. Breakfast was plentiful with lots choices. Great value

The hotel is basic but clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. They cleaned our room daily provided us with fresh towels each day. It's about 20 mins from the centre. Its right near a bus and tram stop. The trams are every few minutes.

My friend and I are two students who planned our staying in Amsterdam for almost one week. More than 8 days before our arrival in Amsterdam, my friend had an accident and we were forced to cancel our booking. I immediately contacted the hotel (there was plenty of time to get another booking by some other clients) and I kindly...

Not impressed! Mould in the bathroom and had to get moved to a better hotel room and wait for two hours after arrival. Will not return and the area is at least 20 minutes from central Amsterdam and not a very nice area to be walking around.

Hotel nice enough, breakfast buffet style not much to shout home about however staff are helpful unless they want to tidy up! The hotel is a little far out of the centre for us so next time e go we are planning on stopping elsewhere.

What I found great about this hotel was it's accessibility. It was a 30-40 minute bus ride away from Schipol Airport, bus number 69 I think and much...

Shabby appearance from outside. Average hotel- nothing special. Room was a nice size but very cold! Hotel reception can adjust heating remotely which they tried to do but it didn't seem to make much deference. Very cold weekend! Old fashioned decor in rooms and not the cleanest. We noticed damp patches on the ceiling, dust on the shelves and a...

What a city on New Year's Eve! Great location of hotel, just far enough out of the city. Trams are available right outside the hotel & take you right into the centre! Friendly, helpful staff on reception too. Thank you for a lovely few days away

The room was very good and really clean, that is a great point! The negative is that there are a lot of noise and you can listen every thing that do the people on the room next to you. I think that is absolutely important for a Hotel also the kindness and the reception. Unfortunately when we arrived at the...
