Nice location but not great value for moneyPosted Oct 10, 2015
Tiny room which in my opinion cost more then it was worth. View out Window was of weeds and concrete, could be done much nicer. No English speaking channels in the Tv. Other then that was clean and in a good location, walking distance to the station and the tourist attracting red light district.

Excellent Location!Posted Oct 3, 2015
Short walk from Central Station. Early checkin was not available but they were happy to check luggage till the room was ready. The location couldn't be better. Directly across the street from the Royal Palace. Plenty of free walking tours to choose from that mostly meet at the WWII monument located in the Royal Palace Palazzo. (Skinny, tall, white statue). Excellent Hotel located in the heart of AMS!

Perfect location and stafPosted Oct 2, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, food, historical value
Cons: Room was small, but most older European hotels are. Would not exchange it for a more modern large room as it was part of the whole character.
Location: Dam Square, Palace, Canals, Canal Dinner Cruise. Central to everything
Wonderful visit to Amsterdam, enhanced by the great staff and perfect location. This hotel has such an interesting history and the original bar is full of ambience. The bar staff encouraged us to taste their local beverages which was special. We arrived very early and they had a room ready for us. Hotel sits across from the Palace and Dam Square with the canal running behind it. The staff were incredible - their English was better than ours.... so helpful and pleasant. We look forward to returning.

In the heart of AmsterdamPosted Sep 30, 2015

Good clean hotel, central, but not noisyPosted Sep 27, 2015
Pros: Liked the position of this hotel. Rooms offered all we needed and was very clean. Quiet for a central hotel.
Cons: Cannot think of anything.
Location: Set behind Dam Square & the palace, it was ideal to explore all of Amsterdam. There were many well priced restaurants nearby.
Excellent position for exploring Amsterdam. Easy walk with luggage from central station. Cannot comment on standard of food as eat all meals out, but their menu looked nice. Would stay here again.

Gutes Hotel in sehr guter LagePosted Sep 20, 2015
Pros: Zentrale Lage, freundliches Personal
Cons: Lüftung in Zimmern nicht dauerhaft laufen lassen
Location: Anne Frank Haus, Dam, Palast, Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Kerk, Madame Tussauds in Laufweite Artis Zoo gut mit Tram zu erreichen Bahnhof nur 10 Minuten zu Fuß
Die Lage des Hotels ist unübertroffen: zentrumsnah, Tramhaltestellen und Supermarkt direkt vor der Tür, viele Attraktionen in Laufweite . Trotz zentraler Lage war unser Zimmer nicht laut, einzig die Lüftung im Bad, die fast immer lief, störte nachts etwas. Das Personal war sehr freundlich.

Modern comfort, old world charm.Posted Sep 19, 2015
Pros: Location, nice blend of modern and traditional elements.
Cons: WiFi signal wasn't very good in our room.
Location: It's right off the Dam Square, in the heart of the Central Amsterdam. Close to our favorite Indian restaurant and major sites like the Royal Palace.
Years ago, my wife and I got engaged at the Hotel Bar (Blauw Parade) at Port van Cleve. While staying in Amsterdam with family recently, we decided to treat ourselves to a night at the hotel. We got a good deal on a very comfortable, charming room. Hotel staff treated us brilliantly and the room service breakfast was delightful. We'll definitely be back.
