We stayed over christmas at this hotel and felt very comfortable. Convenient, beautiful location in the central Canal of Amsterdam The room including the bathroom are nice but quite small and dark . The entire hotel was clean.Exclusive, restaurant and bar on-site. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Best location, lovely gesture”

My husband booked us in for 2 nights as a birthday surprise and mentioned it on the booking hoping to maybe receive a small gesture like a free drink at the bar or a small bottle in the room. What we actually got was a free drink at the bar + a bottle of bubbly in the room + a free upgrade to a junior suite. Such gestures definitely do make you want to stay there again. We are regular travellers to Amsterdam and always stay in the Leidseplein area so this hotel was obviously on our list to try out. The size of the room, the canal view and the gestures ensured that we will return. Less wonderful aspects: the bathroom is a bit dated and the water pressure not great, which is to be expected with a period property. It can also get a little noisy if you sleep with the window open but far less so than with a front facing room, I'm sure.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and your review posting. We are in the process of increasing the water pressure in the guest rooms. Good to hear that you will be revisiting us. Your recommendation is much appreciated. With best regards,

“Great location”

Stayed in a Junior suite which was clean and view of the canal. The room was not as shown in the photos since the bedroom was on a mezzanine floor within the room accessed by stairs. Cleaning staff are polite and professional and the room was always clean. The room was noisy at night as when anyone flushed the toilet used the shower/bath on the floor above water could be heard running down the drains, this would wake you during the night. The reception staff would appear from behind a glass screen and could not always tell if someone was at reception. this seemed as though we had interfered with other work and staff were abrupt. Concierge staff are excellent, very polite and attentive.

“Still graceful after 100+ years of service”

This is a grand hotel in the old style but with all the benefits of a modern hotel. Good location just off Leidsplein - easy tram access to Dam/Centraal station, walking distance to all the major attractions of Amsterdam. Especially convenient for the Museum quarter and Vondelpark. Free & reliable wifi - although did have to keep registering each day. Also have public computers available (with printers) on the mezzanine level. Mini bar in room, concierge service, Dining room and bar looking out over fountain/square. Standard checkout at noon is quite late which is nice. Clean. Well maintained. Good noise insulation. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is not included but is available for a fee - we didn't think it represented value for money.
