Hotel was ok. The heating in our room wasn't working so we were moved, quite quickly - so no real gripes about that. The bar wasn't open - which was a bit of a shame as the locality is not the best. As others have said its 20mins outside the centre of Amsterdam by tram. Personally we will look for...

From the moment of check in it went downhill, Chin Mei manners are poor. No one directed us to our room and made us feel stupid because we couldn't find our room. Everything is done half heartedly and slowly, communication could be much better as a person living in London I'm use to good hospitality!

Stayed in this hotel for two nights and I don't have any complaints . Room was nice and it was clean. Breakfast was ok for 10 euro if you book the night before. It's only about 20 mins away from centre on a bus or tram and you can get a travel card from the hotel reception for 7 euro...

Hotel is comfortable and clean in general with good value for money. .. Room space is fine and bed sheets are clean.. A bit distant from city center and major attractions but close to bus station which takes you down town in only 20 min.. Staff need to smile more often and breakfast buffet needs to be improved and to...

Easy to get to the airport in around 30 minutes with the 69 bus (or to Sloterdijk by train and 6 minutes in bus, maybe 20 overall), nice staff, great rooms, really good value. Locally is a bit less, you should like Turkish food and there is a nice restaurant on the lake, but OK, not really typical Amsterdam, although...

Clean room, good out of town location with close transport links, local bars and shops, helpful and friendly staff, ok breakfast... but, bar "closed indefinitely for refurbishment", so choose this hotel if u just want a base to sleep and enjoy amsterdam.

While it doesn't look much from the outside, the inside is fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. Good access to public transport with a tram out the front that goes to the city and all the attractions (Anne frank, red light, the square etc) and a bus the other direction which goes to a...

We were on a Contiki Tour and this is, hands down, the best hotel of the trip. The room we were assigned was more spacious than most in America. The bathroom was so very nice and the entire feel was modern and updated. We felt safe being in the hotel and around the neighborhood. The staff were polite. The breakfast...
