Great location, clean rooms, amazing shower.
Great location, clean & had everything we needed. Only downside is the room was unbearably hot. It was 14c outside when we got back yet room temperature was 29c - luckily we had a fan to sleep but there was no air & the window opened around 10cm no more.

The hotel is not bad for a short stay. But there is no climatisation and it was extremely hot in town.the windows do not open much, so it is hard to get air in.

Good service, very clean. We were staying when there was some very hot weather so air conditioning would have been welcome, but otherwise happy with this hotel.

For the price it was an ok Hotel....Small lobby....small Rooms....nothing exciting about the Hotel. DO NOT Drink the Free Coffee in the Lobby.....YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Staff were EXCELLENT and Helpful.....You can walk the city....(but just a few more minutes to get there). There were a few cool Breakfast cafes around.....Not a lot for Dining Options.....The Lovers Canal Ride was easy to walk to....close by.....But not much else around. In Amsterdam there are a lot of Bike Lanes....if you are not use to can get Smucked by Bikes.....The Sidewalk are covered in Parked is hard to walk anywhere. Amsterdam as you are probably aware expensive.....
