My favorite hotel in Amsterdam

6/10 Good

Could be better
It was a lovely hotel however there were a few little things which added up which made it annoying however the staff are great. did feel like we got a different welcoming to other guests but oh well. Our bed sheet kept slipping everywhere leaving half of it down the bed in the morning and there was a massive gap between the bed and headboard meaning my pillows fell down. Room was quite small an unexpected so didn’t have much room for two of us to get around. Lighting quite dark and hard to get ready or take photos anywhere other than the bathroom

2/10 Poor

Extremely awful in all aspects!
Stayed at this hotel last week while on a business trip. While checking in they gave me a room in the basement, I kept telling them not to but they insisted they weee sold out. On reaching the room I realized that you get no cell reception and the room was filthy abs stinky, hence I complained. 15 mins later they shift me to a room above. This room was tiny, dark and really hot. I came down and when leaving for dinner requested them to fix my AC settings. No mention that AC isn’t working. When I come back post dinner on asking, the reception first scrambles for 30 mins and then tells me it isn’t working, they knew about it since morning and can’t even arrange a fan. The windows in this room couldn’t be opened fully so tossed and turned at night with no sleep. Next morning when I tried to speak with the manager she did not even bother to talk to me and kept sitting on her computer. I had stayed at this hotel before but since Covid there quality and service have dropped drastically. Had they told me that that the AC wasn’t working at time of check in I would have probably looked for alternatives. Avoid this hotel!

2/10 Poor

Never got to stay!
I never got to stay at the hotel. Upon arrival I was asked if I was with the company booking. When I said no, I was told my room was unavailable due to a plumbing issue and was told to go to another hotel. The receptionist showed very little compassion or remorse for the situation. In fact, she seemed to think it was perfectly normal! I missed an important client dinner and it was a huge inconvenience. The new hotel was not as nice. Fortunately gave me a partial refund. Also, I was offered a free transfer from the airport ahead of my stay but the hotel didn’t respond to my emails in time to secure it. I won’t be attempting to stay here again…
