Great stay

My wife and I stayed for one night. We knew the area, so the hotel was an easy choice. The hotel is really nicely decked out and had self check-in which was a nice touch. There was also a member of staff on hand to assist if needed. They also had a self serve drink and snacks area which was really cool. Our room was 050. Wow - really nicely furnished. Only downside was that I think the restaurant was above our room, so we heard chairs being dragged across the floor for breakfast. To be honest, as it was one night, it didn't matter to us much.Also, as it was only one night, we didn't have a chance to check out the bar or restaurant, but the photos looked pretty awesome.Next time we come to Amsterdam we won't hesitate booking here again. Spot on!

Perfect hotel

We had a brilliant stay at this hotel. The location was convenient-20/30 mins walk to most of the sights/action and the hotel itself was lovely. The staff were friendly and upgraded us to a superior room when we arrived early and our room wasn’t ready! Would definitely recommend

Nice hotel close to the city centre

Nice hotel, clean Room, quiet. Friendly staff. Did not give a 5* because of the self check-in. Even though there was assistance by the staff, it is not what I would expect from a cosy hotel like this.
