so overpriced for what you get - which is nothing other than a bed...the service from the staff was non-existent, and you could hear EVERYTHING happening in the rooms next door and above and below...the condition of the hotel is pretty bad

Not a 4 star hotel for sure!!!
Is this place for really a 4 star? NO WAY! Really dark room, small indeed and the shower was just as dark. Very strange layout indeed.
Quite overpriced for what you get. Excellent location and possibly the best thing about the hotel. Hotel staff rarely smile and debited by credit card before even asking me to verify the information. Was wrong and I was in a total hurry to catch my plane.
I would have rated it average if it was classified as a 3 star hotel but when a hotel is supposed to be a 4 star, I expect and DEMAND more!
Great cosy hotel
I went to stay over Valentines weekend with my Mrs, and I was a little wary as I had read some comments on this website. However, some were unfounded...The hotel is easy to get to from Central Station via a short tram ride. The tram stops literally outside the hotel- very handy if you are staggering back at night. Also hotel is close to museums and a big square which is very busy.My room was ver large, had a huge bathroom and overlooked the main street. Go foir a room with a bathroom as they tend to be bigger. Noise was not a problem for me and I didnt need ear plugs as the windows were thick enough. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.My gripes: Had a buffet breakfast, though it was continental style. Could have done with more hot items. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room- but there were plenty of coffeshops outside... hehehe.I booked this hotel through the NRC website which gave me the best rates for 2 persons, double room, B+B ?105 pn for us both. NB prices can go to ?280 during high season.
I read a good review from another website and decided to go here. When I arrived and saw the dumpy lobby, very unfriendly rude desk clerk, dark dank hallways, ugly room, no A/C (in the middle of summer), and more of the rude clerk, I LEFT. Go elsewhere.
If your room is on the street side of this hotel you will need earplugs to get any sleep, especially on a Saturday night. The room was fine, the breakfast was good and the staff were friendly but double or triple glazing is definitely needed.
Great View, Giant Room
Stayed there for Memorial Day Weekend, 2003 with my girlfriend. The view outside the window was great. The bedroom was unbelievably large.
There was enough room to fit like a party of 50 people in our room comfortably. The bathroom was nice and clean (even the bathroom floor is comfortable to sleep on when you're flying high). The pay TV was a little silly, but really how much TV are you watching in Amsterdam? The only bad thing about the hotel was the hallways outside the room. The hotel itself doesn't look so great, but the room was definitely super nice. Also, I should mention that this was the only actual hotel in Amsterdam I'd stayed at. But I've stayed in city hotels before, and like I said, it's no 5-star hotel, but the room and view is definitely worth it. Before that was the Flying Pig and the Shelter City (what a nightmare that was!).
Comfortable bu noisy
A very clean and comfortable hotel in an excellent location. Breakfast was very good.However constant noise during the night from the traffic outside spoilt our stay. Can I suggest double glazing.
Exceeded my Expectations
I was very pleased with this hotel and would stay there again. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Believe it or not the room was spacious and quiet even though the hotel is conveniently located in a very active area. The windows are double paned.
Stayed there in October. Nice Quiet, clean rooms. Perfectly located. Everything's within walking distance and trams pass by every couple of minutes on the corner. Best kept secret. Don't tell anyone!
we had 3 rooms (5 people) staff are most helpful & we had a wonderful stay, rooms are spotless, spacious & welcoming & the food is great.

Finally our guide, Shawn, an American hippie of about fifty showed up, and we joined another Australian couple who had also booked the "Foods of Amsterdam" tour. (As if we needed more food!) Here is an incomplete list of several Dutch foods we sampled on our tour:
1. The best french-fries in the world (and they were!)
2. A Wurst (sausage) that Don and I split
3. Pofferjes (tiny pancakes with powdered sugar on them)
... having an exit row seat for the 10 hour flight home. I plunged happily into my exit row seat, a very similar seat to the one that I had on the way home last year - aisle seat, mid-plane, starboard side of the plane. Of course, last year I was flying to Seattle. I really enjoyed the historical and computational themes of the movie The Imitation Game. It tickled my interest in encryption and made me think back to some college coursework that I did on public key ...
... t think you are supposed to lift the hem and expose the ankles, but tripping was not on my agenda.
The very colourful mosaic featured on all the walls, tiles and forecourts was truly gorgeous, in colours of apricot, blues and greens in a modern floral design. And the bright chandeliers and carpets complimented everything. You would have loved a close look Heather S.
The locals are keen to recommend taxis for getting around AD, but ...
... Bob-if that was even his real name-was pleasant enough to let us leave our luggage there until check in. Well when we checked in, apparently the ones in the room before us, never checked OUT. So it was a pleasant surprise walking into a room that smelled so badly of sweaty men...but I didn't freak out. I calmly walked out, went to Bob, and he apologized....
But with that, the rest of the trip went well actually. When we finally checked ...
... We completed a circuit around the canals, some if which were built in the 1700's, and made our way back to the beginning. We didn't see them all because there's like almost 100 of them, but we got the gist of it, and they were beautiful. With the mid afternoon sun beating down, we walked back to one if the nice places we saw from the boat, on Brewery Canal (it was seriously called that because of all the breweries that used to exist there) ...
