    too expensive, no service

    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!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Bad

    from

    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.

    Need earplugs

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Perfect Location!!!!!

    from

    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!

    Excellent hotel

    from

    we had 3 rooms (5 people) staff are most helpful & we had a wonderful stay, rooms are spotless, spacious & welcoming & the food is great.

    The ship and the cabin are excellent and the condition is the best we have experienced on our cruises so far. The cabins have been recently refurbished and it looks like new. We are on Deck 9 and our cabin is under"a large overhang so that will protect us from the sun ...

    The museum has many works of Rembrandt's stretching from his early days as a painter all the way until the end of his life. What is interesting is the way he went from highly detailed compositions when he was younger to less detailed where the details and lines are merely 'suggested.' It was also interesting to see the ways in which he experimented with ...

    ... day in Amsterdam! We went to the markets and I bought an orange shirt to wear tonight (for the football game). Next we went on a cruise of the canal with some interesting facts about the city. How the hooks at the front of each building are for hoisting goods (and now furniture) because the stairs are so steep in each house to save space (cos they're all so tall and skinny). It was cool to see the city from the perspective of the water :) even though it was raining ...

That was an unexpected thing for Tiffani to see and hear coming out of his mouth given her limited American exposure. He switched to English once he saw her confusion.

    We finally made it to the meeting place! It was a big red and white painted area that had a sign saying "Meeting Place." Duh!! Our driver, however, was ...

I walk up the street after leaving the museum and find Hard Rock Cafe, I know how boarding but they do one of the best steaks, and a girl needs meat every now and then. Finishing up there in the dark I get back on the bus and head to the ...
