Best customer service from every team member we met. Excellent value for money. Very clean and comfortable rooms. This hotel exceeded our expectations and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If we visit Amsterdam again I would default book here first.

Perfect 4 nights lcation for discovering Amsterdam
The location was excellent for transport and getting on foot to the museums quarter. Lovely and helpful staff. The bathroom was spacious and well designed and the bedroom had a very good size with all the comfort we needed.

Friendly, clean, comfortable, excellent location
This lovely hotel is in a quiet residential area but within easy walking of the museums and old town. The staff are all lovely and incredibly helpful. I found the pillows slightly too thick for me and so the following day the hotel went out and got smaller pillows. Breakfast was simple but very good value considering this is Amsterdam.

Friendly, welcoming and traditionally stylish
Spent 3 nights here with my mum. The staff were very helpful and kind. We had a standard twin room which was very clean and spacious. They provided all the little extras a hotel should provide. You could open and close the windows and easily turn radiators on and off making your stay comfortable. As we went for my mums birthday they left a lovely bottle of red wine with balloons and a note from them without us asking them to which was a lovely surprise. The only negatives for the room were plastic covers under the sheets and they use a mattress topper which you move and it moves, this may not be the case on a double but also gave me a stiff back. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. However we miss understood at check in you must pay at check in to receive the breakfast rate of €15 per day otherwise it is €18. We presumed so long as we booked the day/evening prior for the next day this was the case - NOT that we had to book it at the time of checking in. The hotel was traditional with modern stylish decor. It was very close to the Heineken brewery, a canal tour stop and the museum quarter. It was very close to a super market and tram stop. I didn’t feel there were that many places to eat in the area for a meal in the evening.
