    Location

    For starters the hotel was very basic and dated. In the Bedroom the sink stopper did not fit the sink, and the cups and spoons were plastic. The Breakfest was basic and the hotelseems to be short staffed at times. I also was awakened out of my sleep at 6 30 in the morning by reception telling me that my Taxi was waiting, to which I never ordered in the first place. Overall poor value foe money.

    Good

    Perfect location just near the Dam square, but in the small side-street.

    Non-smiley staff. Room in the upper floor has only window straight to the sky - they didn't notify clients about that.

    Fabulous

    The hotel in general was very good.The staff were very friendly and helpful.The breakfast was included in the price and it was ok.The rooms were small but the beds were extemely comfortable and the design of the bathroom was modern.They changed the towels and made the bed every day.The location was perfect (5 min walk to the Central Station and The Red Light District and in the middle of many shops).

    The only problem with the breakfast was that it was exactly the same every day.I was also a bit disappointed with it as there was only one kind of cheese in the land of cheese! and no cooked food.One thing I found strange was that I stayed for 5 nights but the sheets were never changed and the carpet was never cleaned.

    Clean and quiet. Location is the best for short family visit or shopping

    The breakfast has been included, but there are was not hot food for choice such as fried egges, omelet or sauseges.

    The service was impeccable, all the staff was very kind and helpful! The bedroom in attic setting is lovely. Both the bed and pillow were good. The heating was fine. Breakfast was varied enough. The bathroom although small (not a problem) was clean and modern.

    The elevator could use some repair. I prefer rooms without a carpet and our bedroom had carpet.

    Great location, friendly staff, good rooms not too small. TV with HDMI connection.

    Bring ear plugs, can get a bit noisy from all the bars and coffee shops around.

    Staff were very friendly and booking in was smooth and quick. Room was comfortable and clean. I was only staying overnight for flight conne Gino to Australia. Shuttle to airport was a bonus. Would stay again

    Location is perfect.Hotel staff are very polite and helpful.Internet connection is very good. Room size is big.

    There is no spesfic poor think about this hotel . Just to write a poor point I could say water power in the shower is weak and breakfast is edequate but not very rich .

    Very good

    1) the hotel is very near to amsterdam central station, walking distance about 10 to 15mins walk. 2) the hotel is very near to dam square and alot of restaurants, cafes and fast food stores like Macdonalds, KFC,Burger King etc. 3) all the hotel staffs are very friendly and nice. they speak very good english.

    1) the hotel is slightly smaller but expected. 2) the breakfast spread are quite limited but still a good start of the day.

    Fabulous

    Location & price were our top reasons for choosing and both were met.

    Closet area was not well lit and needed more hanger space - how about adding a bar on the other side also. If we had had wet jackets it would have been even more difficult to use.
