Guests who appreciate the fine design will like the close proximity to the art museums such as the Rijksmueseum or the Van Gogh Museum.

An average hotel

The hotel is close to canals and the flower market. It is also 5 minutes walk to Rembrandt Square. Apart from the location, all other services were pretty average.

The staff was incredible during out stay. They were extremely helpful and accommodating. This hotel is very gay friendly so that was another huge plus for us. It is in a safe neighbourhood not far from the flower market and right on a useful tram line.
