Не рекомендую

Ремонт улиц у отеля был 24 часа, было не возможно спать. В выходной день уборщицы начинаю стучать и заходить в номер с 9.00 каждые 20ть минут! Номер дали хоть и после ремонта - но совершенно не соответствует отелю 4 звезды! Совершенно не понравился персонал на ресепшен - низкий уровень! Часто езжу в Амстердам в командировки и останавливаюсь в разных гостиницах 4-5 звезд, это был мой худший опыт.

Bien situé

L'hôtel est très bien situé mais aurait besoin d'un rafraîchissement, en tout cas la chambre que nous avons occupe. Sinon il y avait des travaux tres bruyants dans la quartier ,y compris la nuit qui ont un peu gâché le plaisir.


Oct, 31, 2016

Achtung Baustelle

Das hotel liegt sehr Zentral
Es wurde nirgends auf die Baustelle hingewiesen. Die Arbeiten 24/7 und es mach es einem unmöglich zum schlafen. Würde die Hotels in der nähe Leidesplein nicht buchen!!!!!!!


Oct, 31, 2016

Un 3 étoiles

Literie chauffage centrale espace de La chambre
Salle de bain exigüe, WC non indépendant, ne pas avoir été averti des travaux EXTRÊMEMENT BRUYANTS qui cernent l'hôtel jour et nuit, absence d'un éclairage suffisant pour lire

Very good location

Nice building. Very good breakfast. Super location for visiting city center.
A little bit upgrade of interior design would help to the best feeling.

24hour roadworks outside!

Friendly welcome from staff on arrival, nice bar and in centre of town so close to the night life.
The road works! They started in the daytime and went on until around 6am, so all through the night! They are going on in the square right outside the hotel and are incredibly loud. Really annoyed we had paid for two nights as would have changed hotels. The staff did move us to a quieter room for the second night, but if you happen to be in one of the rooms with a window facing out then you will not sleep, and for the money we paid (around £200 a night) it was a real let down.

Everything fantastic hotel and location definitely recommend it can't wait to return

Disfrutar de Amsterdam alado de un buen hotel

Bien situado el hotel
Las obras desagradable


Oct, 31, 2016

Don't plan on sleeping until the 2 year renovation project is completed!

Everything. It's a great location and a great hotel.
The major tram works were a major noise problem, particularly when drilling and diggers continued throughout the night rendering sleep impossible. Why was this not mentioned on your website nor by the Reception on our arrival at the hotel. This was unacceptable.


Oct, 31, 2016

zu teuer zu laut

Die Lage. Die Bar und das Café bzw. Restaurante.
24 stündige Bauarbeiten vor der Tür. Die Fenster haben sogar zeitweise geklappert. Es gab keine Nachtruhe. Es gab kein Roomservice nur einen Anrufbeantworter der nicht geholfen hat.

Nice hotel but beware...ALL NIGHT ROAD CONSTRUCTION!!!

Nice hotel with good customer service. Location is good...easily walkable to museums and central Amsterdam. Bed was comfortable.
Please be aware that there is major road construction going on right outside the hotel. No one warned me about this when I booked the room and it is a major nuisance. One night they worked all the way through the night. That's right. LOUD road construction going in at 2,3,4 in the morning. If you are looking for sleep I wouldn't take the chance with this hotel (especially for what you are paying to stay here!) until the construction is finished.


Oct, 30, 2016

Als de werkzaamheden klaar zijn zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Mooie schone kamers met balkon en leuk uitzicht op rondvaartboten. Vriendelijk personeel.
Het hotel ligt op het moment midden in een grote bouwput met enorme geluidsoverlast en moeilijk bereikbaar, ( 7 dagen p.w.)wat pas eind 2018 klaar moet zijn.Maar hier kan het hotel niets aan doen, dit willen zij uiteraard ook niet.

Will be better when roadworks in Leidseplein completed

Friendly & helpful staff.
Breakfast not included (€19.50 per head). Roadworks outside are a real irritation.

Centraal Amsterdam

bed lag heerlijk, minibar prima uitgerust, had een balkon wat erg fijn was
Kamer was erg klein

Perfect for Sleeping, go elsewhere to eat!!

The room itself was fantastic, clean and modern, nothing extravagant but perfect for the amount of time spent in the room and the bed was comfy! Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the location of this place is perfect for shopping and museums!
The one downside to this place is the restaurant. The menu is not extensive and massively over priced considering the poor service. It needs to decide whether to be a high end restaurant or an American style diner. As I believe the confusion around this really let's it down.

Amsterdam short break.

Location. Easy transport from airport
Everything was as expected.


Oct, 29, 2016

We had a great trip to Amsterdam.

Beds comfy
Bathroom could be updated.Also we had no idea we had to pay tax on our accommodation. It should be made much clearer.


Oct, 29, 2016

Hotel sympa mais le service pourrait être amélioré.

Le restaurant.
Chambre trop sombre et un peu bruillante sur rue.

lots of character, great staff but roadworks

There was a wide range of choice for breakfast, from cooked to continental and lots in between. The location is great, close enough to most attractions either by a short walk or by the several trams that stop nearby.( the 1 , 2 and 5 from central station stop withing metres of the hotel, 2 euros 90 cents for a single trip) The staff though are superb, i had advice from two concierges , the reception staff are very helpful as are the staff in the great little bar, fantastic for having a drink and people watching in relaxed comfort. This is a lovely hotel, just a shame about the roadworks ( see the negative comments), it is looking a little tired in parts but dont let that put you off, it has character and great staff. i prefer a firm bed, these felt quite soft so i was surprised to find them really comfy and despite the efforts of the road workers outside i did sleep well.
There are quite extensive road works going on around the hotel, this is not the hotels fault but it is noisy, we were told they started work at 9am and finished at 11pm, not a problem for us as we would be out, however, someone forgot to tell the workmen as they started at 6am a couple of times! check with the hotel when they are planned to be completed. we were offered 2 internal rooms but both were a bit too dark so the noise was the better option. If you do choose a quiet internal room then ask for one of the recently refurbished ones, they look much better.

Good hotel but a little pricey

The location. However there are major roadworks at the square outside the hotel which go on to 10:30pm and start early in the morning.
The room and bathroom were a bit small. I think breakfast should have been included for the price.


Oct, 26, 2016


O hotel é ótimo e a localização excelente. Equipe ótima!


Oct, 26, 2016

Except for the bed the rest of the hotel quite satisfactory

Breakfast excellent worth booking
The beds were uncomfortable because there seems to be a plastic mattress cover which then makes one perspire didn't have a good nights sleep on any of the nights


Oct, 26, 2016


Localisation - perfect for exploring Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum Cleanness
No information about major road works carried out in front of the hotel and under the windows - loud works went on on Friday night until past 10 pm. No reaction to a request sent when making a reservation concerning the floor and beds.
