    I love the family room which had an upper deck, where I stayed. All in all - great!

    No ac :( And no lifts!

  • Couple

    I liked the room for breakfast despite so so breakfast, you may want to extend your breakfast there, although, needless to say, with a different breakfast food, at least better bread

    some rooms are very small when for the same price you can get much bigger rooms in that hotels with a canal view. The most serious minus for this hotel is very steep and narrow stairs -- if you have luggage and elderly feet, don't even try it....

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Excellent location, nice staff, clean and comfortable, a place you would like to get back later on!

    Reserved attitude (trying to be polite) shown by one of the members of the staff towards little kids and their behaviours.

    The owners were very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and nicely decorated. It had an original painting on the wall and beautifully framed mirrors (one of them was full body length!) The breakfast was fresh and delicious.

  • Family with children

    Staff at breakfast were friendly

    No elevators, tired and scruffy rooms, surly concierge, no tea/coffee making facilities, miniature towels - and incredibly over-priced. We could have stayed in a basic but clean and modern chain hotel (e.g. Ibis) 600M from the centre at half the price - very disappointed.

  • Older travelers

    Small hotel with friendly staff, unique rooms, good location.

  • Family with children

    I Liked the localization. _It is very central. In the middle of everything in Amsterdam. You can walk to almost every place of interest in Amsterdam.

    The class of the Hotel is totally below the price.For this price you should get a good 3 star hotel. Even a lot of 4 stars hotels in Amsterdam cost this. This hotel is a low 2 star hotel.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The staff was extremely helpful with directions and city questions. The breakfast was excellent. The location is prime.

    Like other European hotels, the hotel is a potential firetrap. There is a long "spiral" staircase, with no fire escape. The room has a tiny key, and you must literally lock yourself in your room, and hope that if there is a fire, you can unlock your door, and get down the stairs. American hotels use an electronic card key system, probably due to fire regulations. If there were a fire here, and they do cook here, you could not get out--but this is true of many European hotels.

    Very helpful staff. very comfortable beds and perfect location for exploring Amsterdam.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    The location is very accesible to public transportation and main highlights of the city.

    We booked a room and received something else. The manager chraged us for the more expensive room and did not change the price til my husband insisted they did not give us what we had booked. We were very disappointed. Very pricey and poor standards for the money. The hotel basically gave the room to somebody else who they said had for more nights. They also charge additional for taxes, and credit card use.

    The Hotel Staff were really great. Very helpful it felt like home. Location was excellent and my 25 year old son enjoyed himself as he went out till 3am and the hotel was walking distance where all the entertainment was. Reception was also open for 24hours. Room was very nicely decorated very clean. I would recommend this hotel 100% to anybody. There were business people there too.

    History and location

    No phone, no hairdryer, no tea and coffee. Cracks and damage in bathroom.

    The design of the hotel was lovely, great staff with personal touch.

    There was no laundry service and the pillows were very uncomfortable.

    Absolutely nothing.

    Everything i was ripped off again.
