    Fabulous

    The hotel was spacious, clean and very comfortable; its staff was friendly and helpful with the tram/bus logistics of travel.

    Location of the hotel was inconvenient for tourists arriving in the Centraal train station. It was a 20 minute ride from the city center.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The staff were helpfull, the rooms easy to get too and the free internet.

    The walls were paper thin, my neighbours had on their television till 2.40 a.m!!

    Very good

    Easy to get into the centre also to be out of the hectic, noisy city. on return. Peaceful canal walks with bird life and a good Turkish restuarant close by on the water

    Although travelling into the city centre was easy, it was too far out to return during the day, then go out again.

    Very helpful staff, especially the gentleman in reception. Quite nice breakfast thus I think it should be part of the room price. Connections to city center practical and working very well, I do not understand the complaints people have made about it. Yes, it is 15 minutes but the tram takes you there directly. Taxi from airport to hotel nearly 40€. Hotels generally expensive in Amsterdam but still I think good value for the price.

    Breakfast not part of room price.

    Well I stayed at this hotel on the 10th February for 3nights check in was quick which I found was an adavantage. The fact that this hotel had car park was also a plus for me although it charged 15 euros and I must stress that if you are going to use the car park at the hotel make sure you get a car parking ticket that lets you access the car park anytime within your stay so you can pay for the car park when you check out. The hotel is close to Dam sqaure by car and by local transport. Good value for money

    Unfortunately they are not any restaurants nearby to eat or get a quick snack. Also during my stay I requested a double room but the my room was just two single beds pushed together. On the whole the hotel is good value money but as it is rated as four stars I would personally rate the hotel as 3stars.

    very accessible to city centre via 21 bus or 14 tram.

    needs gym facilities or pool. also breakfast had no beans!, rooms also too pricey, apart from that very good.

    Fabulous

    the hotel was lovely inside, the staff were lovely and helpful. the rooms were clean, adequate, and well kept. the buffet style breakfast was well worth the money ,which was helpful on the day of departure as time is tight. trams and buses are only down the road and are very convenient and very regular.

    it was a bit of a spin in a taxi after midnight,as the hotel is a bit of a distance out of the city.

    location is a little far but great links. after 12am is difficult as trams stop but bus comes one every half hour/ hour.

    Very good

    Hotel has nice room and reasonable breakfast. With a public transportation ticket that would be a good place to stay. Eventhough it is not located in a nice neigbourhood, the hotel has a taste.

    Location of the hotel is not nice.

    Fabulous

    Its easy to reach, 30 min by bus from the airport, 20 min by tram from the main train station. Clean room, good wifi, staff helpful. Would stay there again.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Even though the hotel was 25 minutes bus journey away from the city centre, we found the location was very convenient. There is bus 69 directly from airport to the hotel. The bus 21 is frequently run between the hotel and city centre. The tram 7 takes you to the Van Gogh museum directly. The last bus back to hotel is 9:53 from the centre.
