It is a shame that I can't give 3 and a half stars. The hotel is in an excellent location and is very pretty with the fountain outside. Our room was very dated and a little dusty which is part of the reason for the rating I am giving. The bedroom was a good size and the bathroom was compact....

Excellent location and great service from all the staff. Make sure you get the residents' discount voucher for the breakfast. Classic period hotel, but with all mod cons. Complimentary wifi is a bit slow and limited

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. We are glad to read that you liked your stay so much. WIFI can be a tad bit slower in the tourist season when families use up to 3-4 devices per room. At peak moments this may result in so much usage at the same time (terrace, restaurants, lobby, hotelrooms,...

Great hotel near theaters, museums and direct tram line to central train station. We received an upgrade upon check-in without asking which was very nice. We had one small issue with the shower that the hotel staff quickly fixed. No other problems.

Even though there are lots of photos, nothing can prepare you for the amazing café where we ate our breakfast! The exterior, café and location of the hotel are simply stunning and not to be missed. In fact, I nearly didn't book here at all because of some (misleading) reviews, which mentioned slamming doors, dated décor in the bedrooms, creaky...

My wife and I stayed here many times previously (during gay pride weekend). The location in Leidsplein is the best for much of what marvellous Amsterdam has to offer. The hotel is great, the staff first class and the food very good. We've stayed in different rooms here overlooking the canal, at the rear and in suites. They are all...

This hotel is in a perfect location if you are wanting to dine and explore Amsterdam. Lots of dining options right around the corner and a beautiful bar right inside the hotel. Canal boat cruise right outside the front door was very convenient. We would stay again.
