Great location the hotel is close to everything!
Posted Dec 3, 2016
This was my first time visiting Amsterdam. My husband and I just got married and went to Amsterdam for our honeymoon. Since my husband has been in Amsterdam before he wanted this time to pick a hotel in the city center which was Hotel Amsterdam - De Roode Leeuw. And YES the location is Excellent, right by Dam square, surrounded by restaurants, museums, souvenir shops, coffee shops are near by for those interested, Mc Donalds KFC, convenient store, Kebab place, subway sandwiches, currency exchange office, tram station in front of the hotel, 5min walk to Central Station, a walking distance to the canals, to the Red light district etc.. The staff members were extremely friendly and helpful, but what I didn't appreciate was that we told the front desk lady that we were in our honeymoon and we end up having a room with two twin beds, not only that but the cleanliness of the bed sheets was very mediocre and we asked to change the sheets but again we ended up getting a yellowish color that was just gross !!
Otherwise everything else was great, we had a good time in Amsterdam :)
