Great stay!

Posted Jun 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is away from the canals, but only a short 5-10 minute walk to the center. Wonderful staff, they gave us many insightful tips about the area. The neighborhood is very pretty, the hotel is between a botanical garden and the zoo. You can smoke in your room, there is a tv, breakfast is included and was great (meat, eggs, toast, cereal, coffee, tea). A great place overall!

great place

Posted May 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
the hortus is a fantastic hotel, with fantastic staff, its right in the heart of everything, with both, central station and rembrant square in easy walking distance, the staff are well knowledged about the location and city, the hotel its self in places does need updating, at the time of visiting the toilet on our floor was out of use, also if you have heart or lung conditions asl for a first room floor, lol as its a long way to the top up 3 flights of narrow stairs, but dont let that put you off using this place, breakfast is a quaint time with staff mingling with customers, while making sure they get the best service they can offer, while still managing to supply info and banter to customers walking in and out, very homely place.looking forward to going back for my third visit.

Great hotel for a group of friends

Posted Apr 4, 2013
I stayed here with four of my uni friends and it was a great hotel for the price. You could walk easily into town and the staff were really friendly and gave us lots of good tips on places to go. The breakfast was also really good!

The owner is amazing!

Posted Oct 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
The owner is amazing and very knowlegable about the surrounding area, he made our trip so enjoyable! It's not the most luxuriousness to stay However for short trip it is amazing the location is great. The rooms are pretty clean. Overall we had an enjoyable stay. If i came back to amsterdam, i would stay here again.
