Good service and location
Close to center, lots of places to see, room cleaning service is good
My staying at your hotel was very comfortable and convinient. As the staff was very organized and the service was excellent. The location of the hotel was very convinient as well, since the city center had a lot of places. The breakfast was good, but there was a lack of choices in meals. The size of the rooms were prefect for me. One exception, is that is was a little too noisy during my stay.

Great location except a bit noisy.
Location is great since walking distance from central station.
Awesome!Except a bit noisy at night since my room was by the canal.

Excellent location, old hotel building ameneties
the location of the hotel is fabulous - right in front of the train station, and withing walking distance of all of the old town of amsterdam, and near a lot of nice restaurants. the rooms themselves were a bit run-down, with things broken and not fixed, and the spring beds having basically no 'spring' in them - so one essentially sank into one's bed. the bed improved when we were moved to a front facing room with a king bed, so maybe we were just unlucky with both the rooms we were given on the first day...?
Walk through the train station to reach the boat pier or the bus station (one floor up) at the other end, and take a day trip to places around Amsterdam! A day pass is most cost effective if you do so, so ask the driver for one when buying the ticket onboard.

Good location, just next to Amsterdam CS.
overall experience just okay. room was a bit old but acceptable. free 30 min wifi at lobby is a plus. free ice. stayed at 1/fl, if you have heavy luggage, prepare to carry and walk downstair, you need to be strong. room just located next to canal and opposite of bar and pub, if you don't mind being disturbed by boat pass by with pengine and arty people, and don't mind to hear people speak loudly at the pub with strong music, you are okay to stay there, hotel have prepared ear plug for you.
May be good for budget travel.

Great location but far from 5star standard
fairly disappointed with this hotel. have been traveling for a month around europe and decided to book a luxurious hotel as my last stop in europe. except this hotel was far below my expectation and i have stayed better ones which is much cheaper and have better services. the deal seems pretty good on agoda but you might get alot of hidden charges such as city taxes, an 'upgrades', internet, etc. i requested for a non smoking room but they didn't have any so they said that if i want a non-smoking double room, i will have to upgrade and paid 55 euro per night extra. only good thing abt this is really good location

Great location, good service, clean rooms,
The hotel was great on all aspects.
There was only one problem for me as a business traveler :
The WiFi is very expensive and extremely slow. They have a "business center" where you can print stuff but it's really shitty and they say there's free wifi in the lobby but you have to login every 15 minutes to keep it free.
On all other aspects I loved it and I'll come back, i'll just be sure to get internet somehow.

Stay in Junior Suite
Nice two level room, good location
stayed in junior suite. this was a nice two level room. however, the room was right above the bar and nice was able to get into the room. the noise was nonstop through about 4 am, luckily a good white noise app on my phone mostly took care of the noise. they even supply earplugs in the room.

Rooms, service and the Vermeer restaurant attached to the hotel!!
Booked a suite through agoda for incredible price, staff really helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Doesn't look much from the outside but lovely inside. Opposite central stn and right in the heart of Amsterdam. For a special treat book the Vermeer. I've never done restaurant like it before, not pretentious and very welcoming!!

The hotel is an easy walk to major attractions. Many cafes, shops & close to the red light district as well as Chinatown. 5 minutes walk to the Damrak Street where the heart of the city is. Walking around to experience the canals & heritage feature of the town.
The room was nice & clean, though my partner lot his brand-name sunglasses at this hotel.
