We booked into this hotel because of the low price. Great room, bathroom clean with mini toiletries and the room good with tv , kettle and safe. Kind helpful staff and clean room. Only about 20min tram ride from the centre. Close supermarket for snacks and what not. Great hotel!

Lovely clean hotel, staff were friendly. Dam square easily accessible too, you have to catch the bus or train but wasn't too far away, was a nice journey to be honest. We brought bus tickets from here which lasted 48 hours for €25 each, definitely worth it! Coffee shop literally a 5 minute walk away, plus a supermarket just down...

About 25 mins from the dam - clean(ish) room but could've been a lot cleaner. Decor and furniture in need of a revamp- very dated. No bar which was a bit of a let down. 2 single beds do not equate to a double. All in all no major issues but been to much better.

Staff were very helpful and super friendly. Best value for a 3 night escape/vacation trip. Breakfast was very tasty, double room was very clean, tidy, and had a beautiful front and side view. Don't forget to ask for discount cards you can use in shops in the city. Also ask the staff for Amsterdam nightlife card with which you can...

We stayed there for only one night. The hotel was ok, friendly and helpful staff. The room was also ok. The room was clean, not that spacious but cozy.As we were a couple it was a pity that we didn't get double bed which we booked but that wasn't anything bad. The beds were pretty comfortable. The location was pretty...

The hotel is situated outside of the city centre, a positive is that the tram and bus stops are really close to the hotel. It takes 15 mins to get into the centre so it was not an issue. It is worth getting a ticket ( depending on how long you are there for, they do them in 24,48 and...

Myself and a group of friends booked 2 rooms here for a weekend away in Amsterdam. The rooms were a good size, very clean and great for us as we only used this as a base while we explored. The tram is very close which was fantastic and it only takes around 20 minutes to get into the city centre...

Got a cheap deal on this hotel so figured it would be what it was and wasnt too fussed. Decor is mediocre- staff were ok- breakfast good if you like bread (lots of varieties!) I would not re book but its just my personal taste- nothing was actually wrong with this place! The room we had was rather small though....
