      Historical Traveler Reviews Nova Hotel Amsterdam

      Good hotel, 100 mt to DAM!! Very clean!!


      Great hotel! I spent 3 night in this lovely place.

      The staff was OK and also the self service breakfast was very good!

      Without road-noise and very clean rooms.

      It was cheap for the period from 27 to 29 December: only 60 euros per night.

      Highly raccomended!!

      Not good value


      We stayed there for 3 nights in early oct 04, having booked it on Superbreak , cost - 333 ; there was an unpleasent smell in the bathroom, and there was a noisy family in the room next door , who were keeping us awake , so we asked to be moved , and were moved to the only empty room there, a 4 bedded room at the front (at no extra charge) , which , despite noise from the trams passing , and from the refuse collectors(?)at dawn, was definitely better. However there was no hairdryer or kettle in the rooms , and the breakfast is quite basic , with no tomato or cucumber to accompany the cheese slices or boiled eggs . However we found all the hotel staff friendly polite and helpful , it IS a good location , and if you can get a significantly better deal than we did , why not stay there, but we DO'NT consider it to be good value for what we paid.

      Nice and excellent located


      Close to Dam Square, and just in front of Amsterdam Historisch Museum, could not be better placed. Also very good restaurants around, like the indonesian kantjil & de Tijger, or the dutch Haes Claes. The rooms are basic/simple, but confortable, and I would recomend one with a view to the front of the hotel. Good breakfast and nice/friendly staff.

      Excellent location


      Excellent location being just off Dam Square - very central.

      The room was a bit basic but very comfortable and perfect for a base. Breakfast was a bit limited but then a trip to a local cafe soon put that right!

      Staff were very helpful and friendly.

      Nova? No Thanks.


      Though the location of this hotel was great, it couldn't make up for the the dark & dirty rooms. Definitely not the best Amsterdam has to offer.

      Enjoyed our stay.


      Clean and comfortable hotel. Reasonably priced, basic rooms and a tasty breakfast. Excellent if you are in need of a nice place to stay on a limited budget and extremelly well placed at the edge of Dam Square, 5 mins walk from the Anne Frank House, 5mins from the Red Light and 15mins from the Museum Quarter.



      We traveled to Amsterdam and Loved our stay at the hotel Nova. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I look forward in spending some of my honeymoon there. Thanks to the staff at hotel nova we had the most wonderful time in Amsterdam.

      Great Location


      Myself and girlfriend stayed at the Nova hotel for 1 week in March of 2003. On arrival, I was impressed by the great location, a few hundred yards walk from dam square, and within easy access of the bars Restaraunts and cafe's. The Room however was quite dark - ground floor with no view except of a bizzare triangular window which on closer inspection resembled a waste disposal chute! scafolding all the way up so the window could not be opened.- On our first night there a group of Italian students arrived a few floors up and used this area for exactly that purpose. Back to the room, spacious, excellent bathroom, fridge and cable TV -perfect as a base for exploration of the city. If I went go back (BIG IF!) - I would certainly request a room with a window at the front of the hotel. Great for young people on a short break - but stay away if there are any school groups booked in. If you can afford a bit extra - shop around.

      Great Hotel-Shame about the annex


      We spent 5 nights in the Nova in February 2003. The hotel was in an excellent location, close to lots of good restaurants and well placed for tourists. The staff were friendly, helpful and the breakfast was excellent. There was one major drawback-our room. We were on the groundfloor in the annex at the back and although it was very quiet, the room was disappointing. It was cold (the cleaner kept turning the heat off after we had gone out in the morning and as it was below freezing during the day, we came back to a very cold room). It was also poorly furnished and not over clean. There was no outside window which made the room dark.We would stay in the hotel again but would ask for a room in the main part of the hotel at the front.

      Great hotel, great location, great room


      Try and stay at the Nova if you are on a budget. The rooms that face the back are SMALL so ask to be put in one that faces the street. They have a fridge and a food store on the next block. You can see the palace from your window. Its RIGHT in Dam Square, and you can beat the location or the price. The hotel is classic, the rooms had neat odd angles and great big windows. I loved it!

      After brunch and a quick stop into the drugstore, we caught a tram to the De Gooyer Windwill, located just east of the Plantage area of (east) Amsterdam, right next to Brouwerij't IJ (a.k.a., the windmill brewery). We ordered a flight of beer samples, a cheese & salami plate (both super strong) and then our ...

      By the time we finished touring the museum, it was raining. We looked at a few options to do indoors while it was raining, but most of those options were other museums and we had already been in museums for hours today. We decided to just put on our rain gear and ...

      As we entered the city the first thing we noticed was the bikes. Bikes, bikes, everywhere! Tons of bikes parked on racks all around the city, up and down each block, and many, many people riding bikes. The funny thing is, none of the people we saw seemed to be riding for exercise, like you see back home. All the people riding looked ...

Because of the success, this policy has since been adopted by other countries around the world. Hard drugs such as ecstasy, cocaine and heroine are not tolerated in The Netherlands and will result in a criminal record. The same sort of policy has been adapted to sex workers in the Netherlands.
