Hotel Residence Le Coin
Historical Traveler Reviews Harmony Casa Manchester Serviced Apartments
Hotel! + Staff + :ocation
My god, had a rough time in Amsterdam. Le Coin as my base camp to party around, because it´s in the middle of the middle of the middle of the centre was a great choice. Read about it here on this site. Le Coin shortly said is clean, friendly, polite, helpfull & has spacious rooms. They have smoking and non-smoking rooms , so let them know your preference in front (like I forgot). All questions will be answered by Dmitry and Corina (the staff I met during my visit). I was a girl on my own that time, so they were kind of my backup. Anyway, next time I want one of the rooms with a loft (ever seen hotel rooms with lofts to sleep on? só romantic) to sleep with my boy friend. So, in one word, felt like home.
Nice crew best location
Immediately felt like home . . . Just stayed there for one night though. Had a nice talk with a little funny, I think Italian, staff member. They called him ´Mario´. Looked like the computer game I played when I was young 'Super Mario Bros'. Bumped in to him a million times. Always smiling, always friendly. That´s actually the first thing I remember about this lovely little hotel.
About the hotel, great location, little roof-top terras, had a kitchen in my room, the breakfast area was new I think, the bathrooms also looked new and very clean.
It´s só centrally located that you can't stay anywhere else once you've stayed there. Just to warn you. ;-)
Hoping to be there again for a longer stay next summer.
I will then check out the little roof-top-terras for some star searching. Maybe we'll meet there?

The Best Hotel In Amsterdam
I stay at this hotel everytime I am in Amsterdam. Why? Because the staff is extremley nice and helpful. The decor is modern and comfortable. There are kitchenettes in everyroom (helpful when you don't want to eat out every meal!) and the supermarket is only about three blocks away. The floor is heated. The bathrooms are up to date and always clean. The building itself is authentically Amsterdam but renovated so you don't fall down the steep stairs. There is a roof balcony I discovered last time I was there which was really cool. And to top it all off it is in the absolutly best location! Just a short tram ride or nice walk to the train station, flower market across the street, shopping, museums, resturaunts, coffee shops, historical places all just steps from your door. Oh yeah and if you get sick (which I did on one trip) the doctors office is literally next door. I love this hotel and you will too I promise!
A nice place to stay!
We have just returned from spending 4 nights at the Residence Le Coin and we were happy with our stay there.
Hotel is situated in a small side road, close to the centre, Rembrandtsplein, Leidesplein and the red light.
We had a twin room (doubles fully booked) and it was clean, spacious and comfortable.
We had a small kitchenette area which we found useful as it's rare to have a fridge in your hotel room. Our bathroom was clean and modern and our towels were changed daily.
The main room had 2 beds, 2 armchairs, a table and chairs and a wardrobe. We had a small tv aswell.
Our room overlooked the street but some overlook the canal and Mint Tower I believe.
I was suprised by one review here stating the bedding etc was poor, we had clean sheets and covers - all in excellent condition -and our bed was made daily for us. We did not pay extra for a deluxe room?!
Staff are friendly and polite and the hotel has free safety deposit boxes for guest use aswell as the option to have breakfast (however, its better to eat out as you can have a wider choice in the local cafe's and restaurantS - if you want a good English Breakfast, try Stones Cafe or the Irish pubs in the Red Light District. Otherwise there are plenty of lovely places to find a croissant or pancakes)
We have been to Amsterdam many times and if we went back again, I would consider staying at Le Coin!
Perfect Amsterdam Experience
This is a great little hotel with an ideal location, directly across the street from the posh Hotel d'el Europe. I requested a twin room with a canal view and got exactly that! Cute room with a kitchenette and living area, plus a little loft area with a bed. Views of the Munt tower and the canal outside my window. The rooms aren't gorgeous, but they are clean and perfect for someone who doesn't want to spend all the time in the hotel room. The staff are very friendly. I never had the hotel breakfast, as it's much easier and cheaper just to go to a nearby cafe for a croissant. You just can't beat the views and location for this price.
Nice little 2 1/2 star hotel
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently and I have to say it looks much better on their website than it actually is.
We had 2 rooms booked, one deluxe double and one double for the 4 of us. If you like any kind of space to stretch out I would suggest booking a deluxe double as the reg. double is very shall. Both rooms were a fine place to hang our hats, but there were little things that they could do to make this hotel a bit nicer. The sheets and towels were worn and hard from all the bleach used on them and the room could have been cleaned better each day. I would expect that a hotel that is nearly $150.00 per night would change the towels each day, but that is not the case here. The price really only reflects the excellent location. If this hotel were a little further out from the center they would only be able to charge half as much.
We did not have the breakfast as it did not look very enticing. One can have the same breakfast, but with better quality ingredients for a fraction of the price in any of the cute cafes in the neighborhood.
I seriously doubt that I would stay here again as Amsterdam is a fabulous city with so many hotel options it would be hard to go back to one that is only living on its location.
Great Little Hotel
Stay in Feb '05. Nice sized room, good staff. It's right in the centre so everything is on the doorstep. Would definately stay again.
Very nice hotel in a great location
June 2005-- We stayed in a fabulous location, at The Hotel Residence le Coin, on Nieuwe Doelenstraat, directly across from the five-star Hotel de l'Europe, down the street from the Hotel Doelan. A great neighborhood in the heart of old Amsterdam. We had two connecting twin rooms for our family of four. A perfect set-up for us.
There is a taxi stand within a block and a metro stop closeby, too. The hotel is virtually in the middle of the town, so you can walk to all the sights within about 15 minutes.
The hotel has a lift and A/C, also free use of the hotel's washing machine and clothes dryer in the basement. Each room has a little kitchenette, a nice-sized bath, large rooms with wooden floors and a sitting area. It's fairly new, so everything sparkles. Very friendly front desk, too.
Two cafes on the same block as the hotel are wonderful: Café Katoen for a university atmosphere, and Café le Jarden, for great table seating on the canal.
A+++ very nice
I will stay again in a week for a month, this will be my 5th time in the hotel. Stuff is nice and will help out and nice about it:-) The rooms seem to be of nice size and clean, well very clean. Rooms come with a nice bath room and bath tub and shower, each room has a refrigerator, stove top coffee make and all the utensils you will need. If you took the money it cost to stay here and played it to some other hotel you would not get a place like this, " everything you would want out the front door " and a really safe place.. i love it and boy am i pickey!!!
Location...Location...Location. And price!
A wonderful business class hotel in an incredible location. The staff, the rooms and the price are all exceptional. Going back soon and already have my room reserved.

... go see the red light district, which was honestly super sad. That area was packed and super dirty. It wasn't the safest of areas either. Everything surprisingly closes in Amsterdam at 2 am, so we did not get very much time to venture around Amsterdam that night. The next day was our only full day in Amsterdam, so we got up early to wait in line for the Anne Frank House. The normal wait time is usually around 3 hours, but we went so early that it took less than an hour. We ...
Yesterday we were advised to make the Heineken experience an early morning activity so we headed there after leaving the park. The tour began with a history of the company and the man and his family who began the business and still run it today. The next part takes you through the materials used, the machinery , and the process to used to make the product up to the bottling process. Twice throughout the tour ...
... a little corner bar-restaurant that was packed with diners. We found a couple seats at the bar and ordered lunch, a smoked chicken salad for me and a burger for Mary. Quite delicious and it was fun to watch the people. From there we took a circuitous route along the canals to Dam Square, looking for a little courtyard that I remembered but could not find it so we sat in the square for a while people watching ...
... with checked floors and red booths. The food was pretty good and very cheap. A beer only cost a euro! This was going to be a great trip. Afterwards, when we finally felt as though we had energy again, we started down the streets. We didn't really stop at anything in particular, we just soaked up the surroundings and got a feel for the city. That night we went to the bar below the hostel. We each got a 20% discount there because of our room we had upstairs. It was ...
... of Sue Porter, we visited the gardens at Chateau Villandry. Fabulous! Diane solved the maze, I stared at the carp, and we both were stunned by the detailed beauty of Villandry. On the way to Mortemart we experienced a spot of trouble. Just as we were exiting the interstate at Chivigny, a warning light came on with the message "Fluide Vidange!!!" Having no idea what that meant, and with the Renault manual entirely in French we lost an hour plus before we tracked down ...
