Our guests rated our hotel with 8
It was pretty convenient location with easy access from both the airport and downtown Amsterdam. Breakfast was overpriced but tasty. Staff was very nice and helpful. Nice that there was also very easy access to several grocery stores
Fantastic hotel. The staff is absolutelly great. The rooms is very confortable, spacious, clean and cozy. Spotless bathroom with full size bath and the floor was warm!!! The breakfast is fresh and delicious. Highly recommended!!!
My fiancé and I travelled to Amsterdam for his 21st birthday. We stayed in this hotel and honestly I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and modern. The only fault I had was we didn’t realise Amsterdam was so big and over anticipated how far this hotel was from the centre of Amsterdam. On the other hand, the public transport over there was amazing and cheap. The hotel staff helped us how to purchase tram tickets, and then gave us a map and told us what stops to go on and get off at. The only mistake we made was only booking for 2/3 days, would have loved to stay longer!!
We paid for breakfast but unfortunately we missed both mornings because we planned so much to do, so I cant tell you how the food was.
If anyone isn’t aware, you do have to pay city tax when you get to the hotel, so make sure you take enough money for how long you are staying.
