Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Great stay. Welcoming staff whatever the time. Great location very close to Amsterdam station. Walking distance distance to all aminetites. The hotel reception is very clean and welcoming. There are snacks at the bar to buy. I will stay here again for sure.

Very impressed with this budget hotel, clean and tidy, welcoming and helpful staff, in a great location. 24 hour reception. Would recommend better than others I have stayed in for similar price, that were a lot further out

The hotel’s absolute advantage is it’s location close to the center and the train station. As for the rest, it provides a very simple stay without any additional comforts and could definitely use a little makeover as well as some more cleaning.

Good location near the central station, restaurants and bars and Dam square. Triple room, a bit dated and beds very soft (not my favourite) but the room and bathroom were cleaned well every day. Didn’t eat breakfast as we don’t think it was included in...More
