Small but totally worth it.

The room was truly tiny - inched my way around the very comfortable double bed. However, everything had been placed really well so I was able to make tea, recharge electrical devices, and be perfectly comfortable despite how small the room was. The area is really nice, and only a 10 to 15 min walk from the old town. If you don't need the typical and quaint Amsterdam location then this is a very affordable alternative.

Something lacking

Steps from the street could pose a problem for older or infirm. More comfortable chairs in the lobby (where you have to go to use free wi-fi) would be better than the arrangement around the centre table. A simpler, cheaper breakfast option would also be good. Very convenient for the Van Gogh exhibition while it is at the Hermitage.

OK, so firstly the location. the

OK, so firstly the location. the hotel is located about 15mins walking from Rembrandt square and about 25-30mins from Dam Sq. it has easy access to trams and theres a beautiful park right beside the hotel along with the zoo. hotel rooms are very clean. stayed in a standard double with my girl, but it was quite tiny, so switched to the superior double which was awesome! had a 2 seater couch and lots of room to talk around. service was good, helpful. never tried the b'fast there. cant comment. the rooms are a tad noisy when others walk up and down the stairs at night. pricing wasn't bad at all.. about EUR 50 a night cheaper than living around the Dam area in a GOOD hotel.

The initial experience to Eden

The initial experience to Eden could be better if we were welcome whole heartedly by the reception. The assistance provided to carry a heavy luggage was not very welcoming even with a hint of the heaviest luggage that the airline accommodates! Should we be reminded? In addition, the initial room provided for a double bed room was shockingly small for both of us. We managed to exchange a bigger bed room after a complaint i.e equivalent to a family size without paying additional cost. I guess we were lucky that there were extra rooms. The interior was pleasant but the bedding was rather too springy.Other plus side that the hotel do provide tours information and you could purchase tickets and internet was free with one PC! So, first come,first serve! In addition, the hotel is located in a strategic location near the tram (9 or 14) stop that leads direct to city center and the Centraal Station i.e gateway to Schipol airport or other parts of Europe on Rail.

The second room that I was given

The second room that I was given was very pleasant. However, the first one had a nearly-blocked drain in the shower that spread water all over the bathroom floor and the whole room smellt musty. The hotel acted promptly when I pointed out the problem and moved me to another toom. The hotel is pleasant and conveniently located on a tram and bus route from the central railway station.
