Positive Reviews

City and Centre

This hotel boasts a fantastic, central location, only a short walk from the Amsterdam Central Station, and close to various public transportation links. There are many eateries, ranging from sit-down restaurants, to casual cafes in the area. If you're planning some retail therapy, you'll be thrilled to find that all the major shopping districts are less than two miles from the hotel.

Quiet Rooms

Though the area is quite busy, the hotel does have some very quiet rooms towards the back of the hotel. If you're just here for a restful night's sleep, ask for a room away from the street.

Negative Reviews

Dirty and Disappointing

Guests were very disappointed with their accommodations, and said that the rooms did not match the pictures on any booking Website. All rooms seemed very old and poorly cleaned, and furnishings, linens, and amenities were in bad condition overall. In addition, the rooms were very basic and did not provide much more than a place to rest your head for the night.

Light and Heat

Guests complained about two items that seem like consequences of an energy-saving policy at the hotel. First, the rooms are quite dark and have poor lighting. Second, guests reported being cold at night due to insufficient heating in the rooms.

Some Stairs

There are stairs throughout the property, which elderly guests and those with heavy luggage found hard to navigate.
