Recently spent a long weekend in amsterdam. The hotel was 5 minutes walk from the train station, along the main road. Excellent location, close to all the bars, resteraunts, shops. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, and well furnished, with a privet bathroom. The rooms were a little small, but had everything you needed.

As you state it, our rooms are not the biggest in town but that is something we can not change in our over 100 years old building. But our location is ubeatable, within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station, opposite Hollands' most famous department store "De Bijenkorf" and the Stock-Exchange and in the middle of the historical center. We were...

I'm a professional incentive consultant but was asked by my rotary club to organise a weekend Amsterdam. It is not easy to find a place in the city centre where one can sit with a group of 32 "with the locals" and not somewhere stashed away on a second floor! And have a decent dinner. But "de roode leeuw" totally...

We were pleased to learn that we fulfilled your expectations. As we do not have any other facilities, with the exception of 2 Board-rooms, we cater all lunches and dinners in our restaurant and this seems to be appreciated by many persons as we have often dinners organised by reputed companies and as you state it, it is a mix...

One cannot beat the location of this hotel! Six blocks from the main train station, one block from the major shopping street, two blocks from the Red Light District (quite safe these days as it is swarming with tourists and police) and 100 yards from the city central square. The rooms are a bit on the small side by American...

We stayed here in January and booked a twin share room, however as they were renovating the hotel they moved us into a suite. New, clean, friendly staff. Will definitely stay here again.

We had a great trip to Amsterdam and enjoyed our stay. The Hotel Amsterdam - De Roode Leeuw is in the center and very well located. We can really recommend it. If we travel to Amsterdam again, this hotel will be our accommodation again.

I had a weekend off during a 3 week European business trip and choose this hotel based on price (under $200) and location. It is about 700 metres from Central Station and right off of Dam Square.

Let me begin with presenting my apologies for the fact that you had to wait 10 minutes before the door was opened when returning at night. We shall look into this matter as this is not acceptable.

Excellent base for exploring. Only ten mins walk directly down from Central Station. A haven of tranquility on a really busy street! Not the largest room to move around in but very modern and clean.

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
