From an uninspiring lobby, albeit with friendly staff, to a dismal, dated room on the 6th floor my expectations of this iconic building were soon dashed. Yes a great location, yes very clean, yes it is architecturally interesting and the art deco cafe beautiful. Even my new room on 5th floor was dark, dated and no view. Corridors dated and...

Excellent location, easy canal side walk to most of the main sights. Art Deco Cafe Americain is beautiful. Staff exceptionally courteous, helpful and professional. The room was well equipped, spotless and contained a convenient "office" area. I would definitely choose this hotel again.

Yes, the room was a little small but we were in the room just to sleep and shower. Staff at check in were excellent and the concierge was very helpful, even finding umbrellas for us. We did the canal cruise which was just out the front door. I did find all the smokers on the front steps a little bothersome....

The hotel was spotless. The staff was wonderful. Our room was very comfortable.The location was close to so many of the attractions we wanted to see. Beautiful historic area. But yet they had an elevator which was nice and a lot of hotels in the area didn't.

This hotel is perfectly located in one of the most exciting areas of Amsterdam. The rooms are comfortable, and if you are lucky enough to have a balcony overlooking the canal, it's perfect! Will definitely stay there again.

Fantastic location. Loved the area. One of the little known interesting facts of this hotel is that in the lobby under glass there is a signed guestbook from Amy Winehouse. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to go back

We stayed here because we were going to have a stopover in Amsterdam and there was a major bombing in Bangkok the day before, so we extended our trip. Amsterdam was quite full of tourists, so most hotels were full or nearly full. This location is lovely and the fountain and cafe are very scenic. Front desk is very friendly...

The location of the hotel is excellent. The staff is very helpful and the room was very pleasant. The history of the hotel was available in the lobby and was very interesting to read. We intend to go back to Amsterdam and will stay there again.

“Try to get a room overlooking the canal.”

“Lovely hotel. Rooms are clean and well appointed. As prices in Amsterdam are on the higher side, our room was a bit pricey, but there wasn't anything more we would have asked for! ”

“Make sure that you get the room you expect. The pictures on the website didn't match what we got, but they took care of it without any "attitude" - very caring staff. Also, bring your OWN shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Hotel's is quite generic and didn't feel good.”
