Stay in Amsterdam

It was alright, it is 20min walk from the city and there are some good food options nearby like box social is a must try! But was a little upset with the housekeeping, definitely could have been better.

Great choice for our stay in Amsterdam

We just wanted to thank the staff at The Lancaster for being so friendly and helpful. We arrived very early off of a flight the first morning of our stay and we were very tired. The staff went out of their way to ready the room so we could get checked in and rest before we went out to see the city. Every interaction with staff was positive and helpful and the rooms were super clean, comfortable and just right for us for this stay. Thank you! Leslie Croy, Iowa, USA

Weekend Break for the Light Festival

Really impressed with the hotel, there was a few reviews that worried my wife but I can honestly say we had a really lovely modern room and it was exceptional value in comparison to the other hotels in the area. I will be staying in this hotel when I return to Amsterdam. The staff were really friendly and helpful I would happily recommend.
