Great find - clean, friendly and very comfortable

Tram stops are just 150m from hotel, but it only took us about 15-20 mins to walk into the centre anyway. Rooms very clean and comfortable. We had a room at the back and it was lovely and quiet. Bar/restaurant attached to hotel so handy for a first/last drink each day. Zoo just across the street.

Great hotel with ideal location

We had a very enjoyable stay in a very good location. Next to the Artis zoo, the hotel is within 20-25 min walking distance of the city centre and a short tram ride to the central station. We had a nice room with everything we needed for a relaxing long weekend stay. We also got to check in early after a very early flight in without a problem at the self check in desk. Free chocolates in the lobbby were also very much appreciated!
