“A Great City Pad”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

This hotel is situated in a quiet residential street which is no more than a 10 minute walk from Leidseplein where you will find many shops and restaurants. Our spacisous ensuite room was clean and comfortable with pillows that ensured we had a good night's sleep. The breakfast buffet was of both ample choice and quality. The staff were lovely always smiling and extremely friendly. I must give a special mention to Snoopy the cat who lives there too. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 40 as just inside the main entrance on the ground floor and it backs onto the reception d...

Quiet area, wasn't too expensive, extremely attentive staff - for instance the receptionist was trying to make me have at least a tea/coffee before leaving when checking out very early, before breakfast had started.

Usual Amsterdam problems - tiny room and all that - but the hotel DOES have a lift and the stairs weren't terrible either.

The hotel is located on a quiet street, but yet was only a five minute walk to Leidseplein with all it's happening nightlife and abundant restaurants, and less than a ten minute walk to the museums (Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum). It's also a five minute walk from the bus that takes you from/to the Schipol airport, and the museum tram stop is nearby.

Our room was quite small but comparable to other European boutique hotels. The have wi-fi but charge for it (12 euro for 5 hours). A continental breakfast (cold cuts, hard boiled eggs, toast, cereal, juice and coffee) is included and is in a nice room overlooking a patio garden, with the resident cat lounging on the sofa by the window. It's nice that the breakfast goes until 10:30 am.

The staff was great, the co-owner (husband) was very friendly and quite entertaining at times. Sometimes it's that kind of memorable touch that makes or breaks a hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a lower level, as the staircase is precarious and the elevator is tiny and supe...

Very quiet hotel (with the exception of Gregory the cat) with friendly and helpful staff. Good location particularly for museums and trams. Single room more than adequate with a small balcony overlooking garden of hotel. Recommended if you want a small, friendly hotel in a busy city.
