“Great Staff”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We started in a room in the 1st floor or 2nd floor here in the US, but it was very noisy due to the upstairs people. When another room was available they relocated everything for us, since we were out on a tour. The staff was very accomodating and helpful with every single request.
I like the refreshments available at the lobby. I wished I could make that flavor water here. Rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff very helpful as well.

Ideal location close to museums , historical sites and shopping areas, with nice views on the Singel canal (for those who can afford the pricy canal-view rooms ). Except for the staff at the reception , all other staff seemed unexperienced and were sometimes rude , not up to standard for a 4 stars hotel . We stayed in room 210 ,probably one of the biggest canal-view rooms , with a sober decoration compared to other areas in the hotel . Breakfast and parking are extra , which brings the price tag at 430 Eur for a one night stay . I did not make a benchmarking , but is the location and poor service really worth that price ?

We stayed here as a family with two teenage children, for a long weekend. This was a perfectly located hotel, dam square being only 3 mins walk. Lovely restaurants 2 to 5mins walk from hotel, all of which the staff are happy to recommend. Hop on tourist bus at back of hotel which was very convenient. The staff were so helpful and the hotel was very welcoming in all aspects. The decor is old world, rooms with a canal view were lovely, other rooms were very nice but not large. The rooms were comfortable very clean and sufficient quality to give a feeling of luxury. Avoid room 112 if you are a very light sleeper,as it is directly above entrance doors (bathroom has louvre doors). Would definitely stay here again, this hotel is simply adorable!

Room Tip: Not 112 if very light sleeper as above entrance doors, and can hear them from about 6am, but did not...

Adorable little hotel with a lobby area which reminds me more of a bed & breakfast than a hotel. Great location! Everyone I encountered at the front desk was friendly and helpful. My room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Only negative is that the walls seem a bit thin and you can hear the other guests in the hallway coming in and out of their rooms. I notice that there were even complimentary earplugs in the the room.

If you intend to sleep, do not stay here. You'll be awakened by every footfall in the room above you and every noise next door. The house keeping is especially noisy.

Room Tip: Top floor or another hotel
