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.

... br> Jumping back in time, I am driving into Istanbul, without GPS I have to find my way to a small street in the tourist centre part of the city on the European side of the Bosporus. Unfortunately I could not stop for the photo, but it even has a sign on the other end of the bridge: You are now in Europe. Officially not yet of course, but the Bosporus divides Asia from mainland Europe, so you can imagine my feeling driving on this huge bridge truly leaving Asia ...
... that it seems completely normal to us to just be headed to the next destination. Really a fun way to live, but also fun to come back to the US for some time to see our family and friends.
We will be on airplanes for over 20 hours tomorrow (there is a reason very few Europeans vacation in Hawaii!!), so do our best to get a good night’s sleep. We are excited to see Maui again, it is still one of the most unique and wonderful places we spend time ...
... enjoyed eating outside.
After dinner we continued our stroll and did a little trinket shopping. Dad wanted some magnets for his collection and a whirligig for his plants at home. We also ran into a couple of very nice young men from London (Max and Harry). We chatted for a bit about Amsterdam and other things. Max is making his first trip to the U.S. at Christmas with his parents (I think Max and Harry were 19 or 20). He will be visiting New York ...
... little sample bottles of perfume I bought at Farina's in Cologne had broken at the neck and the perfume was all through the bag. Everything I had touched during the day had been impregnated in it. It had got onto my clothes and hands. This had obviously made it to my taste buds too and that is why I could smell it. My perceptions of smell are obviously distorted by this process and that is why everything reminded me of marijuana. I chuckled to myself and wondered how ...
... day at work was grim. I almost fell asleep at my desk. So, what did I end up doing? Inviting myself over for drinks that evening, and repeating the previous night's mistakes, except on a grander scale with more beer. Much more beer. I still don't know how much we managed to put away, but I do know that it involved several trips to the hotel bar to replenish the supply. The thing with Belgian beer is that it tastes great and goes down so easily that you ...
