“Good location, ok value, good value for money”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed here for one night on a recent visit to the Netherlands. The hotel is well-located, just five minutes from the station, and about the same from Dam Square. It's in the heart of (what remains of) the Red Light District, and close to lots of nice bars and restaurants.

Check-in took an age as there was only one person on reception and the process seemed to take a long time. When we finally got to our room, we found it was VERY small. European hotels don't often have generously-sized rooms, but this one was so poky it was actually difficult to move around it with two people in it.

That said, what space there was was used well - nice big flat screen TV, desk, small wardrobe, etc. The bathroom was similarly small, with a shower cubicle, sink and loo. I honestly think the bathroom was so small that people who are on the large side might struggle to use it comfortably. I never did find the switch to turn on the light in the bathroom, which made it a bit difficult to put my make-up on in the morning, but perhaps I was just being a bit dense!

Free wifi on offer, but this involved a logon through a browser, which meant it worked on my iPad but not on my phone. Assume this would work fine on a laptop.

In all, this place was good value (in a city where value is often hard to come by). Not a hotel where you'd want to hang about and relax, but a good base for exploring the city.

Dear AuntieMabel,

Thank you very much for taking the time to respondon your recent stay with us.

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry that you had to wait a little at the reception and that you could not find the switch in the bathroom. Actually the switch is on the main electricity panel outside the bathroom.

Indeed we discoverd some issues with our Wifi on mobile phones during a couple of days. This has been repared directly.

Again, i would like to thank you for your comments and hope we may welcoming you again soon!

Kind regards,

Erik-Jan Bausch

Bought as lucky dip on Lastminute.com but couldnt have been better - price, location and rooms. Easy walk from the station, good check in service, rooms pretty standard but had all that was needed inc very comfortable (double) bed with lovely pillows. Positive points - bought canal cruise tickets much cheaper at reception, full ice bucket provided on request, ability to log on to computer in reception, check in for flight home and email boarding passes to the reception for printing - all for free! Just walk across the road for access to all the night life - perfect for adults!
We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view rather than looking into internal courtyard

This hotel has an excellent location with everything on walking distance. The rooms are small but efficient with an excellent bed and a nice bathroom. Breakfast was fine at a reasonable charge.

Location of the hotel is excellent, very close to all you need. Rooms were very clean and staff very helpful. Rooms are quite small but absolutely enough for two. The only thing was that bed was made of two separate single materaces which wasn't comfortlable. Over all great holet for affordable price.

Ideally placed in centre of this amazing city. We had a delux room which was fairly spacious, clean and modern.
Reception staff really helpful, no problem giving us a full ice bucket to have with our own drinks that we'd got from local shop. Wifi included and free to use pc in reception with instructions for printing your boarding pass.
Only warning would be about lift, says takes 6 -8 people and it got stuck with 6 of us!
Would highly recommend this hotel
