First of all, the room does not seem as the pictures available at the website. At least my room was considerably smallest and the bathroom had the same feature. I would have problems if I had much luggage to handle. However, I didn’t consider a totally uncomfortable place. It was clean, with a suitable heating system and invigorating shower. Wi-Fi... More

Stayed here as a couple in november. Location- Really good location about a 5 minute walk from central station so depending on the reason for your trip, you'll be close to damrak and rokin for the coffee shops and you'll also be close to the canal boats, tour & trip places. Rooms- Rooms did the job, they are mostly almost... More

This hotel is perfectly situated just across from central station. It is a few minutes walk to Red Light District, Anne Frank house. The doors are locked at all times to get into the hotel so you know not anybody and everybody can walk into the hotel which was really comforting. The bedroom we had was a reasonable size, however...

Location about 5 min walk from Central train station. Room was on first floor at the back so no view unfortunately but spacious and clean. Only drawback was shower not very powerful. Breakfast selection adequate but best to get in there early as they seemed to run out and not refresh the hot food very quickly. Mini bar and safe... More

Stayed at the Multatuli for 5 nights in Oct 2016, the hotel is in a great location just opposite from central station. When we arrived the room was not ready so we had to wait a short time. We had booked a room for three people which was a good size and had three single beds. The room was relatively... More

The staff was extremely helpful. I was given a 3-bed room, although I was alone. Quiet, bath tab, minibar, free safe, complimentary coffee/tea kettle, good bed linen, free wi fi, very good breakfast and coffee. Very good location, good quality/price for Amsterdam standards. Though, the whole hotel needs renovation!

Great location, you can stay overnight, go to downtown in the evening and continue you journey in the morning. Very nice staff. A lot of stairs. Not very spacious. Our kids loved fish tank in a lobby.

Staying in Centrum

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.
