        Individual guest reviews

        • Couple
          8.2

          Everything. Friendly staff, nice rooms with a beautiful view.

          Too soft bed, really too soft. But you can survive it for a few nights.

        • Family with children
          8.4

          very helpful staff comfortable beds only thing wrong resturant was really nice but didnt cater for small children

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          location was not great, limited shops or restaurants in the area. You need to get a tram to the city or closer into Amsterdam to find something nice. On a plus point easy enough to get from Airport. Hotel Facilities pretty basic, comfy beds. Taxi from here into city centre, about 12/15 Euro.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Very clean room, good location with good tram service into the city centre.

        • Older travelers

          Everything went wrong and was wrong!!! Unfriendly staff could not advise on prices and avaibilities over the phone (twice the answer was"everything is on the internet!"). In the bedroom now: light bulbs not working, furnitures mostly damaged, handles falling out of cabinet doors, too few hangers and broken. Lamp side table but not socket to plug it in. Dust all over the place. Found dirty laundry from past holiday makers being wardrobe. Towels with gigantic holes and stains on repetitives days, pillows full of yellow stains,room halfway cleaned on our last day, not allowed to take our drinks to our bedroom. Staff and General Manager were surprised that we had complained?! not interested! glad we never had breakfast.When the offer is too good to be true, then do not go there. It does not matter how much you pay for your bedroom, 1 or 2000 Euro, believe me this is not a 4 star hotel, do not waste your money.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Staff was very friendly, always helped us and we didn't find any problems at all and nobody bothered us.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          The worst hotel i"ve ever seen. we"ve booked room at the last floor (11 floor). However girl from reception didnt tell us that they have elevator only till 10 floor. We had heavy baggage! Duaring Check Out I called on reception and asking about baggage service. Wors luck they had no luggage service. Its incredible. Also we had bugs in our beds!!!

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          bed was very comfortable and very clean

          Room was generally overheated on arrival. Most would say it was a good thing, but it is not possible to open any bedroom windows - so if you don't like air conditioning you've had it.

        • Single
          7.8

          The room was very clean. The bathroom was nice. The breakfast was good.

          The location is not great. I did not feel safe in the neighborhood at night. It is close to public transportation and within 15-20 minutes of the center of town and close to the freeway.

        • Single
          6.6

          privacy: stuff pretty invisible, "not disturbing"-like secure: in a crowded surrounding, a good place to get back to for a safe room

          "unfinished" feeling; workers still with construction materials all over.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          One staff from reception, she was very impatient with me. I wanted to have the invoice prior the day I check out, she asked what is guest name, I told the last name, then she came up with another person with same last name, so she argued with me why this is not me? but as everyone knows a person with same last name could have all different first names, she said she could not give invoice before check out. But she doesn't listen to what I try to say, only continue saying what she wants to say. I raised my voice to let her hear what I want to say, then the manager immediately came, said that I am not allowed to talk to his staff in this way, the manager didn't want me to explain what happened. as a highly educated person, I've never seen this

        • Couple
          7.4

          Room was very comfortable and spacious. Cleaning lady came every day. Supermarkets 2 minutes away.

          It's too far away - you have to take the public transport to center, which was 11€ for two days pass. The staff couldn't provide the city map. Also, they had internet problems and firewalled all coffee shop websites.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Its clean and friendly service That it was close to the bus service

          The beds where uncomfortable Too far from the main area of Amsterdam. Rates should be less as it is so far from the main part of Amsterdam

        • Couple
          7.8

          Good customer servivce. We got help quickly with all our bigger and smaller requests. The room was clean. Towels were changed without asking. Luggage room after room check out was working really well. Buffet breakfast was ok (we only took it once, we preferred to go for a breakfast in to the city). City center C.15min with tram. BUY tram tickets from machines if you stay more than 1 day, they have more options!!

          Safety box was too small for a regular pc... But this is really a basic problem in hotels..

        • Couple
          6.2

          It was hassle free and a nice hotel...no frills but cleaned well maintained

          Location a bit out of the way, tv didn't work properly, lack of food/ restaurant facilities after 10pm
