The first impression this hotel will give you as that it quite old and dated, however it is very clean and well maintained. Pricing is good as well and the staff is very helpful. Only a few minutes walking from the city centre and a visit of the Heineken Experience on the other side of the road is recommended.

I like the new breakfast, fresh eggs and pancakes. Good thinking and easy. As always, very helpful and honest staff, they care. Good location to Heineken, Albert Cuyp, Leidse and Rembratnplein and all the museums. Good food and pubs in the neighborhood with access to trams in every direction. This hotel is a keeper and I intend to return.

First time travelling to Amsterdam? Please note that you should purchase tram ticket for at least 48 hours which is more cost effective.

There...

Cosy Hotel, very quiet position just outside the canal rings, very near to wonderful canal spots. Easy to reach by tram (near Frederiksplein) and 10 minutes walk from Rembrandtplein. Staff very nice, tiny room, familiar breakfast, all clean. A good experience. Just one minus: you can hear everything from the other rooms, literaly everything.

The hotel is close enough to the busy centre to walk (or by tram if you want to save your legs), but is located in a quiet street just off Frederiksplein. It is quite small and cosy and we found the staff friendly and helpful throughout our 3 day city break. Our room was basic but functional, everything worked. We...

The people are very helpful and friendly, the location is very convenient to the things I wanted to do, and the room was clean. There are places to eat nearby and the tram is a short walk. I never felt afraid or uncomfortable traveling solo.
