A Nice Hotel”

My family and I stayed at this hotel in Amsterdam. The location was great and was near everything. No need to take a taxi from the airport as the train station...Central Amsterdam...is within walking distance. Lots of cafes, restaurants and stores within walking distance also. Patrons of the hotel get the included breakfast right next door at Molly Malone's which reopens later on and is a great place for drinks. The hotel was clean and you always see a staff member sweeping, dusting or doing general cleaning.

Largest room I booked in this Euro Trip”

After what we had the other night at Paris, these two rooms in Amsterdam were like gigantic. God bless us. Staff was great though we couldn’t borrow an adapter like in Milan. Location was good, ten minuets from the train station on foot. What surprised me was that we were actually in the vicinity of the red-light district. Doesn’t matter though. Blythe way, people in Amsterdam speak better English than in Milan or Paris or Frankfurt or my home city. (._.)

Good service, location & free wireless internet!

Although some may say otherwise, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel.first we had a big room but with no open windows.the next day we changed to a smaller room with open window.although not much can be said of the view,the bed was comfortable,the bathroom was nice.it can accommodate bigger-sized persons as compared to other hotels in Europe.Breakfast was included at the Irish Pub next to the hotel & it was satisfactory. Everything is just walking distance to the hotel.5mins walk to Amsterdam Central & trams,5-10minutes walk to Damrak & Dam Square (Madan Tussaud's) & the red light district & chinatown is nearby around 1-2 minutes walk.we had safe walks even at night. many restaurants nearby the hotel ranging from Asian (even Malaysian!) to european restaurants & pubs.shopping is also nearby. The only turn off is hot water is only available at your tap(ranging from very hot to very cold).

The rooms are small but clean. Nothing fancy, and wouldn’t want to spend the day in there, but the location is great! It’s in the red light district and close to everything. No noise from neighbours or street. The room had no window which can feel a bit claustrophobic but if you’re out and about in Amsterdam, it’s fine! The beds were comfy and the bathroom was clean. Was a perfect place to rest our heads at night, which is all we were looking for over 3 days.

This is definitly the best hotel I've booked for my Netherlands-Belgium trip! Staff very helpful and friendly, earlier check-in time when the hotel is not that busy, clean and bright room, well-equipped with a fabulous view of the canal and the church! Also I saw the staff do the disinfection work very carefully, which is very important during Corona and makes me feel assured. Last but not least, the price is very reasonable! All in all, I'm most satisfied with this hotel and cannot recommend it more!

the location and the simplicity

It took me quite a time to find the hotel since it is located near along the small alley yet it was the perfect location. It is close to the central station,and other nice spots in Amsterdam. The hotel was an OK hotel. I came there under a tight budget, so as expected, it will not be the best one. However, i can say that its worth my money. The hotel is between two pubs where you can have a drink and meet other people. Breakfast is served in one of the bars. It was a nice stay.

The hotel is only five minutes walk from the train station and is ideally located at the top part of the red light district and within walking distance from the dam square and shopping streets. The hotel is great value for the money but the breakfast was so and so, very basic, most of the staff was very polite although the receptionist had a rude tone in his voice when i commented on the check out time being 11.30 while check in was after 14.00.. Nevertheless, it was a great stay in Amsterdam, a true experience!

I got a room without window but it was adequate for a short stay. The bathroom is new and very clean, which was out of my expectation. The breakfast is lovely, just right beside at the Irish pub. Although the selection of breakfast is limited but it is good enough for a budget hotel like this. The location is perfect as well, near to Central station and the city centre. To reach the hotel you need to stroll around small streets and that makes it even better since you get to explore the city.

Location was perfect. Right next to the China town and in the Red night district! The overnight Reception was very helpful, and the housekeeping guy in the morning as well As one of my fd needs to take medicine, he helped us to look for a kettle and delivered to our room. Breakfast was good, but better improve the service a bit, quite disappointed as the coffee machine stopped at 09:50 and even I had tried to ask the guy for a coffee.. that was proper for those who would like to had a nice coffee to finish the breakfast. Others are just perfect, rooms are newly renovated. We had a triple room, room size is good. Highly recommended.
