    Attentive staff, deppending on the person. Location and convenience. It is located in a nice quiet street. There are no backpackers. Ok for the price in Amsterdam.

    For some reason no one ver cleans the room! No matter how long your stay is (I stayed for 7 days). There is this guy that changes the towels (linen and towels are clean but ripped appart, by the way, you´ll see it). But does not come ever into the room to clean., Carpet is rather gross. And about the shared bathrooms: If you are lucky, they'll be cleaned once a day, if not, deal with the consequences. Other than that, responsible stadd and ok to stay.

    the staff was always very friendly and tremendously helpful

    it would be nice if the breakfast hours were extended a bit

    Location was good. Staff at the desk were friendly and helpful to provide information about places to see and how to get there. We enjoyed the breakfast included with good range of breads, cereals, cheese and deli meats and beverages.

    The double bed was smaller than expected for 2 people to share and the pillows were too fat and not comfortable to sleep on. I would have liked a toastmaker available and more variety of fresh fruit.

    It is a bit expensive!

    Slightly old decor.

    Location was very good and parking reccomended was acessible and affordible. Staff were helpful and friendly and informative. Rooms were clean and bright not dull. Breakfast was OK and in general enjoyed the stay.

    Mainly litlle things, but little things add up. The shared toilets smelt and there was never any soap in there. There was no toaster for breakfast. In my oppinion the pillows were uncomfortable. When purhcasing tickets for transport from reception, be mindful and don't rush selection. We purchased a 48hr tram ticket and found that we rarely used it and ended up walking most of the time.

    The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable in recommending activities, restaurants and such. They were all nice and relaxed, making me feel welcome. The room was fine, I was expecting the whole bathroom to be shared but in the end only the toilet was in the hallway and I had my own private shower and sink. Pleasant surprise for a woman travelling alone! Everything was clean and in good working order, not the most luxurious but perfectly fine for a weekend on a budget.

    My room was on the first floor, right up the stairs from the reception hall so I could hear people all the time, as well as my neighbours and the toilet next door. The room was also right on top of the kitchen, so I was awakened by the sounds of banging pots and dishes every morning... Basically, don't forget your ear plugs! Also, I was there on Queen's Day and the hotel was letting people use the toilet on the first floor, which incidentally is the one I had to use. Not a bad thing in itself, but I think they should have mentioned it; at the end of the day it was pretty filthy, and I didn't like having random (drunk) people coming and going right by my door.

    There was alway someone at the front desk until 0:00. The location is very quiet, central and a 10 min walk to Leidseplein.

    In room safe costs 1,20€ per day. Noisy refill of toilet flush (lasts over 10 minutes)

    The staff were fantastic, helpful and made great recommendations for a range of places to go. The breakfast was lovely and the staff on really took care of the food to ensure it was fresh and plenty of it. The room was too small and it was a bit odd that some rooms have a bathroom and other don't. Overall however a great location especially for the price!

    location and breakfast were good...

    Arrived at the hotel early after my flight from Canada and had to wait 3 hours for my tiny room to be cleaned which took 10 min to clean all the other days. Not very good service...
