"Good Iocation - otherwise disappointing."
Stayed 4 nights ( Room 508) .... back of hotel, view okay .... no issues with noise from main plaza. Room was a quite small and basic. Bathroom was very small with the shower not much bigger than an upright coffin; couldn't bend down or raise arms to wash hair with hitting glass walls. Staff were polite and relatively helpful. The single 'Guest' lift (appeared to be quite old / out of date)in the hotel was not operating and apparently had been inoperative for some period of time. When staff queried re repair time ... unable to say other than 'major repairs required - not currently safe for Guests'. Guests required to share very small service lift with all other staff. Long waits and then forced to share VERY small lift with cleaning and room maintenance staff along with all their associated equipment/ materials... stopping at each floor to load and unload equipment / dirty bed linen. Stay included a Saturday morning (8.30 am) and 'included breakfast' was a debacle! Only two relatively junior staff working in dining area ; insufficient tables for guests, dining area tables were not cleared, ran out of many hot food items.... not re-newed within the (approx) 20 minutes we tried to have breakfast, ran our of bowls and cutlery .... no staff present for majority of the time ... running back and forth between kitchen and dining room. Bloody terrible experience ; refund for breakfast payment sought. Asked to speak to Duty Manager on duty; advised none working at that time -only the two junior staff members who were subjected to un-neccessary stress due to inadequate management. All in all NOT a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Suggest look elsewhere.
I haven't been here a day, and already very, very disappointed. Checking in was pleasant, we are here on King's Day, but the receptionist was very nice. Unfortunately it took 20 minutes for someone to come and store our luggage. When we returned at 3pm to get our room, no problem, except it took another 10 minutes for someone to come and retrieve our luggage. Then we got to the room. Two twin beds (requested) but pushed together, so... I guess my traveling companion and I are now sleeping together! But that's not all, the wall separating the room from the bathroom is glass, frosted only in the middle. When I asked I was told all the rooms are like that. Seriously' No privacy whatsover in the bathroom' Very disappointed with both Trip Advisor, Expedia, and the Hotel for leaving out a rather crucial, for me at least, detail about the rooms.
"Very central location with good rooms"
I was here on business and the location, right in the heart of Rembrandt Square, was great. Walking/bicycling distance to everything that you'd want as well as plenty of restaurants, bars and people around. Easy enough to get out of the touristy Rembrandt district and head to the Jordaan as well. Fast, free wifi as well.
"Central, easy to get to and near a lot of restaurants"
The hotel is just off Rembrandt square, so a quiet location with little road/people noise. The air conditioning in the bedroom was efficient and quiet - particularly welcome features. The room was also quite large, which is not always the case in Amsterdam, with a reasonably sized bathroom (shower only). The breakfast was very expensive, but as there are cafes within minutes walk, it was easy to find alternatives. It has quite a corporate, impersonal feel, but if you are out all day, and with plenty to do nearby, that did not matter too much.
"Nice hotel, good location"
Nice hotel with a good location within walking distance to most things and a tram stop not far outside, about a 20 minute walk to the train station, right by rembrandt square which is lively at night but hotel is quiet. Room was nice, breakfast was ok but not really enough for vegetarians like most continental breakfasts. Would stay again. Beware of mini bar as if you move an item it automatically charges to your room.
