This hotel is amazing. The rooms are beautifully appointed (mine had a river view). The service I received was perfect. I was helped with every bag and every door. I also ate lunch at the restaurant on the terrace (not sure if it's affiliated) and that meal was great. Couldn't be more central, and not at all red-light-y. Highly recommend.
as a first break in 2015, we had hoped for something special and chose superbly.
from the moment we were greeted until the time that we left we felt like celebrities.
the staff were exemplary, the location so peaceful and yet so central, the ambience in the hotel sublime that it made the weekend memorable for all the right reasons
could not fault it one iota!
Good hotel near major Amsterdam attractions, street cars, bus, and hop on hop off bus tours. the Conceirge is fantastic. He speaks English better than most Americans and is extremely helpful on almost any topic.
the rooms are European small with very small bathrooms. the rooms and facilities were clean and neat.
The ability to buy tickets to most attractions and the availability of pubic transportation was very good.
Walking distance to great restaurants, all attractions, red light district etc. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and goes out of their way to help with anything.
Generally, hotel has been refurbished and looks great. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, which is a problem on warm days, not just for temperature comfort, but room then smells musty from the humidity. Windows open only a crack, so airing out is not possible.
Carpets in the room and the hallway are old and could use a good shampoo to take out stains, or replace altogether for a fresh look.
Would stay here again.
I enjoyed my stay here! One of the front desk ladies really seemed put out whenever we needed something or had questions. She told me that she was just really busy and couldn't help me at one point. The other people I dealt with were really kind though. There was confusion wether or not breakfast was included. Some people were getting vouchers but we weren't? It was kind of confusing. Another lady acted surprised that we didn't have vouchers. I wondered if it was because the lady who was "so busy" failed to include us in on them. We ended up paying for breakfast but it was wonderful! The man who cooks breakfast may be the owner or manager, either way you can tell he really takes pride in the place! Great stay!
The classic Amsterdam image of stately canals, the Canal Loop is principally the Herengracht and Keizersgracht, lined with gracious tall 17th and 18th-century houses. Some of these are now museums, most notably the eccentric Kattenkabinet. The Amstel is a more down-to-earth waterway, lined with houseboats and famous for its classic much–photographed Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge). The floating Flower Market is also a much-loved canal feature.
