Spent 3 nights here as a base to explore Amsterdam. Great location in a lovely park and easy access to trams in all the directions that we wanted to go. We bought a transport pass at the airport,which lasted us 96hours and cost 22€ each and caught trams everywhere, this was a perfect arrangement. The hotel was clean, great decor...

The hotel looked lovely and the situation was very pretty. I didn't mind that it was in the process of being refurbished but I thought it was really expensive for the distance from the centre and the facilities on offer and I've paid less and stayed in far better hotels.The breakfast was decent and staff were ok but I was...

Great hotel, 40 min walk from centre however. Fabulous rooms and great staff. Disappointed with restaurant - not enough choice for the majority, so chose to eat elsewhere. Lovely location right on the Oosterpark. Great wifi and great facilities in room itself. Only thing that let it down was the poor food and the long walk to the centre of...

This was my first visit to Amsterdam. I'm glad I stayed at such a nice, modern Hotel. The location was perfect. Rather than being in central, it was in a lovely, quiet park and the tram line (number 9) was directly outside the Hotel leading to central. The Hotel was very clean and the housekeeping service was very efficient. The...

Great place to stay if you want to be just outside the old town. Easy to get to old town and majority of main attractions. Staff excellent. Wonderful room very clean. Price of food and drinks very competitive.

I stayed here with my spouse yesterday, for three days. It was a great stay, but the room made me feel really claustrophobic. The bathroom was made with glass walls, therefore, a see through bathroom. I didn't like that. The extension for the kettle was dangling and would drop behind the spiral stairs every time I used it. It was...

Easy to get to hotel, the number 9 tram from the railway station took us 6 mins walk away. We walked through the park where the entrance of the hotel looks over. Friendly welcome by concierge and girls on desk. Room was really cool and modern. Our room was like a mini suite. Fridge in room so we kept our...
