    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!

Then we went on a really luxurious canal ride. We all afterwards went the weird red district which was an experience. Near the end of the awesome day we all got very hungry and …

    ... people started to jump off of the bridge into the water. However, there are strong currents and dangerous rocks below. Instead of putting up no diving signs and posting a fine amount if you jump, they sent divers and crew members down to remove the dangerous rocks near the bridge so that it would be a safer experience for people that do jump. This blows my mind because this would not have been an option in the United States. ...

We noticed an edgier fashion culture and couldn't help but notice the openness of the red light area whilst inhaling a lot of ...

    We slept till around 10 then got up to find our host had bought us more croissants. We ran out of strawberry jam so that was mission 1. I showered then we biked to the grocery store to get jam, salads for lunch and something for supper. We got home and had our croissants and a couple cups of coffee. Elys has a washing machine so we put a load of laundry in. It's a hot day so the clothes can dry in the sun. Cory decided he needed a hair cut so he went ...

    ... my feet tell me it may have been 12 or more!! We ended up at the Icebar Amsterdam for some cold vodka served out of ice-glasses. I think we need to start one of these on the panhandle! Today (Monday) we toured the Rijksmuseum where many Dutch master paintings are housed, including Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Van Gogh also has his own museum, but we ...
