Hotel Needs Investment into it's Rooms

On paper, this hotel is 5 star, with all the necessary facilities required to meet that 5 star rating. Staff were friendly, and the location is brilliant. Also has a well maintained lobby, with bar, restaurant, etc. However, the rooms were sadly, old and tired. Wallpaper was peeling off, carpet was stained and old, and it just didn't reflect that the establishment was indeed a 5 star hotel. That being said, this hotel has a lot of potential, with it's already existing facilities, and location. Investors really need to invest in modernizing and refreshing the room decor, and this hotel will have it's glory days again.

Lived up to expectations

The room was spacious, very comfortable and extremely clean. The location of the hotel is ideal for anyone arriving in the city by rail, being a short stroll from the Centraal Station. The Damrak and Dam Square are only a few minutes away. On arrival we were struck by the very attractive lobby. Check in was very efficient and we were offered a 'nice room with a view'. Well, the room was certainly very nice but the view turned out to be the side of a church, mostly all we could see were bricks.. What was worse is that the room was above a very noisy street, full of bars and one of the main thoroughfares to get to the Red Light District - however the hotel thoughfully provides ear plugs! We did not eat or drink in the hotel itself, but there were a choice of restaurants and bars onsite that looked lovely. There are also a lot of restaurants in the immediate vicinity so guests really are spoilt for choice. We cannot fault the hotel in any way at all and we will happily stay there again.

Marvellous

First time staying here. It was recommended and I'm glad we listened. The staff are attentive, pleasant and very very welcoming, (and good looking too!!) On check in we were asked if we wanted a view (Yes please!!) No extra charge!! The room was more like a suite. Based on 2 levels (!?) very comfortable, spacious and a view of Damrak & Centraal station. One thing though, the double glazing is not actually double glazing, it's quite thick panels of glass screwed over the outside windows. Other reviewers have complained of the noise of trams, Hmm! Depends on what time you get up I suppose. They dont actually start until about 7 ish I believe by which time most people are up for breakfast. However being night owls and not going to bed until the (very) small hours we didn't notice them until we woke around mid-day (LOL). So try to ignore other comments, Seriously, they're not that noticeable. The hotel bar is a nice place to meet before heading out but is somewhat dimly lit but that didn't really matter as we weren't staying long. The foyer of the hotel is just magnificent, black and white marble and very grandiose. Personal and special thanks to Johnathan on reception who very kindly helped me with trying to check in on line and very graciously offered us late check out (He'd seen us roll up in the early hours). Many Thanks indeed. Gold star :) For the Brits out there,turn left and left again outside the hotel on to Waarmoestraat, 150 yds down on the left try Teddy's Corner. See Josephine (Essex Lass). Anyway, On the whole This is a top quality hotel with top quality furnishing and decor and the best staff you could ever come across. Highly Recommend. Tip: If you're a light sleeper request a room away from the front of the hotel. They will be quieter

For the AUD$166 we paid at the time, this hotel was fantastic. Huge king bed and large room and ensuite, free wifi in lobby and 5 star service. You can see the hotel from the front of the Centraal station so very easy to get to, and just a short walk into the sights of Ansterdam.

Good location near central station

Good location near central station and city centre. Breakfast too expensive especially compared to nearby restaurant at a third of the price. Free tea and coffee in room but only one of each and only one milk/creamer. Room size modest with a small standard double bed, not really 5*. The only 5* bit was the restaurant and at 75 Euros for dinner a bit expensive. Also asked for no smoking but corridor reeked of smoke and room had been used by a smoker, even had ashtray and matches. Nice to have a late checkout on the Sunday. Visit was to celebrate an anniversary but no opportunity for extras to be pre booked.
