Good quality, comfortable

Posted Apr 14, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Location, comfortable room
Cons: Service, lobby, general upkeep
Location: It's in a residential neighborhood with small local eateries and other businesses.
Hotel is in a residential neighborhood, a 20 or so minute tram ride to downtown Amsterdam; we liked the feeling of staying in a real neighborhood. Room was clean and comfortable, with the only caveat being that we were cold at night and hotel staff were unable to provide an extra blanket until the 3rd night out of our 4-night stay. Aside from the difficulties of getting a blanket, staff were pretty helpful. The lobby could be nicer and there is not much in the way of common areas outside of the room, and there are some signs of wear and tear on the facilities. On the plus side, there are two computers and a printer in the lobby that guests can use for free. Bikes are available for rental.

Pros: I am used to it and to the area
Cons: update the rooms; educate housekeeping on how to clean
Location: nice restaurants but away from many major activities. easy airport public transportation.
I have been staying at this hotel for over 7 years and for a period of 8 days per stay. last week was the worst of all. When I started staying at this hotel, everything was great. Now, everything is going backward. 1- The hotel is nice and located near some great Turkish and other north African restaurants. 2- The lobby and the front desk people are nice 3- the restaurant and the breakfast are good 4- rooms are nice size and well divided 5- here are the latest problems; this hotel is in a dire need of update, maintenance. the closets are old and without handles, the carpet is old. some of the lights are off base or worn out 6- Housekeeping: absolutely terrible, I checked in the room and had two small bars of soaps and that was it. never got another set even when I complained. I purposely dropped the empty shampoo bottles on the floor of the shower and never got these removed for the whole 8 days I stayed there. I left other minor stuff on the floor for testing and nothing was cleaned. do not look under the bad as it is a scary view. all the housekeeping did is change towels and fix the bed.

Convenient, clean, friendly.

Room was equivalent to US standards in terms of size and amenities. The room was very clean and a tram station was nearby. If you use UBER, it's approx. €20 to dam square. I would stay here again.
