This hotel is a bit far from the city center but close to tram to town. It was pretty nice. Stayed here as part of my Contiki tour. The pillows are massive so makes sleeping a bit challenging. Breakfast was delicious.

Rooms were small. Breakfast very expensive for what it was. Long way out of city centre involving 25 minutes public transport. Not a nice location, in suburbs with lots social housing and can be a bit intimidating after dark.

Just spent a night there, after arrival in Amsterdam. The hotel is quite far from the city center but we are fine by that because we're already getting tired. Opposite the hotel there's are a two bars and if you continue walking to the right side, there will be more bars and night shops. So the area is quite nice,...

Stayed here with 4 people in a room for 10 days. Clean. Only wish there was a mini fridge in room. Close to tram line 13/14/7 to Centraal Station, De Dam and Museumplein and Bus 69 to airport. About 30 mins to Central Station. Nice if you want to be outside of all the hustle and bustle. Grocery store close...

Hotel met my expectations. Comfy bed, but noisy plumbing from an adjacent room. Well connected for getting into central Amsterdam - on two tram routes, a bus route and on a night bus route too. Breakfast was good, staff were good too.

Not the best, but all right for one overnight. Restaurant was out of more menus and drinks were not possible, due to the fact that the bar was closed. Reception service were OK - but poor information about parking and payment of parking

Far out from the hustle, almost at the end of line 14 and 7 is this hotel. It's appeal is that it's in residential area away from the centre but for some that would be a disadvantage. Think 20 mins to the centre. Staff were good and helpful without being exceptional. Breakfast was €12 but we opted for the bakery...

Arrived early morning and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was nice and big and beds were really comfy. The kettle and cups were slightly dusty though. The hotel is about 20 minutes out of the city but once you get used to the trams and where to get off then it's not a problem. You need to get...
