Reviewed 4 September 2012

Decided to make it to Amsterdam for a day after watching the F1 Grand Prix in Belgium. Conveniently located on a quiet street off the main Dam Straat near the Centraal station. Location gets a tick from me. The rest was just OK. For 90 Euros a night I'd have expected more. Lot of options to eat/drink/smoke around within short walking distances

Nice little hotel in a very quiet area, very helpful staff. Everything is very clean. The hotel is very close to the railway station. There are restaurants and stores all in walking distance.

We stayed at the times hotel for a long weekend and it is just perfect for the short amount of time. It is very central and 2-3 mins walk to dam square but far enough away to be out of the tourist carnage.

It is on a very nice canal which can be busy with party boats going up and down every so often until around 1am, so you should expect some night time noise as with all central Amsterdam hotels.

The hotel reception and staff are very welcoming and friendly with everything you need. You can get coffee and complimentary pastries and sit in the dining area. We opted to not have breakfast but it was always busy in the morning and looked good. This coats about 10 euros per day per person.

We stayed on the top fifth floor which you access via a new lift for 4 floors and then up a small steep flight of stairs. The room was clean and tidy... A bit on the small side but if you are only using it as a base then it is fine. The bathrooms are modern and the whole place is very safe.
You have air conditioning in the rooms as well which is modern.

There is no hair dryers in the room, but reception will supply this for you if you ask.

We were attacked every night by relentless mosquitos that seemed to appear out of nowhere, even with everything closed to the outside world. They had a nasty bite to them, but they are common at this time of year, particularly next to water.

Apart from that, the stay was great and we would recommend it. Do not forget as in all Amsterdam hotels, that you will need to pay a city tax on your departure.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal facing room

We stayed in the Times hotel for just 2 nights over last weekend and found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs. The location is superb, situated on (in our opinion) the nicest canal and just 10 mins walk from the Centraal station (don't get a taxi, it literally is only 10 minutes!) and less than 5 mins from restaurants, cafes and bars etc. We found both of the reception staff to be extremely friendly and helpful, we used the free wifi (could only pick it up in the cafe area by reception but was very comfortable) to check-in for our return flight and the girl on reception happily printed our boarding cards for us - so big thanks to her. The room had been recently refurbished, twin beds pushed together were comfy and the walk-in shower worked perfectly and although we didn't have a great view we weren't concerned because we went to visit Amsterdam not to stay in the room! Free coffee, tea, biscuits available in reception was a nice touch. thankyou Times for a comfy weekend.

Room Tip: Our room was just down from reception on a lower ground floor, small but had everything and easy acc...
