        Great hotel”

        Small hotel but very clean and tidy, friendly and helpful staffs. The location was great, just 2 min from the hotel door to the Dam. Breakfasts were good. The only thing that we were not so pleased was that the hotel didn't have a lift so we had to carry the luggage to the room upstairs, but this is the common problems for small hotels in Amsterdam. Except this, spent time in this hotel was really great and savings your pockets. I'll come back hotel again when come back Amsterdam, love it!

        The hotel was in a great location, right in the centrum and not far from the Central train station (easy commute to the airport). Lots of restaurants and shops around. The room was nice, modern and clean. Staff were friendly. The only thing was that the room is small, so if you are thinking of staying here, it's best not to bring such big luggage!

        Room was very small and would get extremely warm! The bathroom was ok it was clean but yet again it was very small. I would stay here again as long as we were guaranteed a bigger room as the room was just not big enough for 2 people.

Note: streets in the area are noisy for most of the night so bring earplugs if you are sensitive to noise. There is a fan but no air conditioning so I kept the window open.

        unbelievably comfortable bed and pillows, nice staff and good location

        We walked from the Amsterdam central to the hotel, it was quite hard to find, being in the middle of a busy street with restaurants and bars; but that's the best thing. Plenty of food to select. Very comfortable bed and fluffy pillows seemed to be a problem for us because we didn't want to get up and out! Breakfast was very basic with bread and fruits and yogurt (we're oriental, so we usually enjoy heavy breakfast) but beware trevellers with heavy luggages - no elevators! we almost broke our backs carrying the bags on our own.

        A really conpact hotel. Room is small but clean. Staff is really helpful. If no breakfast included, there is a good bakery just around the corner. A very convenient location to many tourist sites. The hotel is on the street full of restaurants so guests can often hear noise during night time.

        The worst hotel ever experienced ”

        It was absolutely the worst hotel I have ever been to! We paid a lot of money for the worst service, the worst hygiene, the worst breakfast! At night, we couldn't sleep from the noise coming from other rooms (very thin walls). To top it all, I have caught bed bugs, and had to go see a doctor (which cost me another 100€ on the bill!). We had to pay a huge amount of tax because we reserved through the (agoda website)! The only good thing was the nice staff memebers (althought noisy in the corridors). I do not recommend this hotel to anyone!

        Uncertain experience”

        Most of the staff were very helpful and friendly, but there was one who was rude and demanding in the breakfast room, without even first identifying himself as a staff member. The room was cleaned daily, but they declined to refill the soap dispenser in the shower a couple of times. WiFi very good in the bedroom; didn't work in the breakfast room. Keycards failed a couple of times for room access, requiring extra trips to reception.

        Just ok”

        Great location and staff, No elevator! So bear in mind your luggage! Very narrow stairs, small room and very small toilet but clean, comfortable bed,free wi-fi, the facilities were ok but not as expected when you pay €775 for 3 nights.
