Good location and friendly services. It is close to the subway station, trams, museums and good restaurants. The area is safe and clean. The room is small but of a reasonable size by European standards. The hotel staff are very friendly.

ca4 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Absolutely wonderful hotel! Perfect location, just enough away from city centre that it's a quite place to stay, but with lots of great restaurants and cafes in the area, and very easy to walk/take transit to the centre of Amsterdam. The staff were incredibly friendly and able to take care of all my needs. I could tell they really cared about keeping the guests satisfied. When I read that the hotel is family run, it really shows through in the way they treat me, and with all the little details they take care of. Nice, clean and well kept as well! I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Amsterdam.

Everything was great. This was the perfect place for me - was close to everything and tucked away on a quiet street. The staff members were helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Amsterdam.

Quiet location. Friendly staff (family was great). Quaint building and decor.
ca3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
The location was great, especially due the proximity of subway & tram station. The staff are all very nice, and facilities are good. However, a big negative is that there is very little sound isolation between rooms, so you can hear almost everything that happens in the other rooms (including the rooms above). This is especially annoying for all the plumbing noises (toilet flushing, showers, etc). Other than this big issue, all else was good.
