    Wonderful Stay!

    This was a great boutique hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. It is very centrally located approximately a 10-minute walk from the main train station. There are restaurants and cafes all around the hotel and it is a great base to explore Amsterdam. Check-in was fast and efficient and they even let me check in an hour early. It was a stressful time for me because my airline did not load my luggage on to the plane, but Franciska and the others at the front desk were so helpful and reassuring (the luggage arrived the next day). Breakfast was included in my room rate and really good! The rooms are super modern with very comfortable beds and awesome showers. WIFI and AC worked very well. I very much recommend this hotel if you are staying in Amsterdam.

    Wonderful stay

    We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was wonderful; Rebecca, Merel, David, and breakfast staff. We plan on visiting Amsterdam again and would stay here again in a minute. The location was great too to the metro system and to popular sites. The breakfast was one of the best that we've had at a hotel. Highly recommend!
