Stayed in the quad room for one night. We stayed in another place near the red light district for two other nights, but wished we stayed here the whole time. Very nice neighborhood, quiet, a great play park for children across the street, tram stop right nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

We liked everything about the hotel. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was clean as was the bathroom. It is also on a quiet street. The breakfast was good. If I were to go to Amsterdam again, I would be more than happy to stay there again.

(boiled eggs, bread, cheese, vegetables, cereal, yoghurt etc). I could walk everywhere and a direct tram ride from the train station. It was worth the 15 euro at the end of the trip taking the...
