  • During the day, this place is packed with tourists hoping for a shot at the I Heart Amsterdam Sign (No Longer There) If you want to go at a time when you'll be alone, Take a walk here at night...  more »
  • Easy accessed on public transport, Trams, Buses. Metro is only ten minutes walk away. Bars on the south side near the concert hall.  more »
  • It's a little further from the Center than I would like... That being said, the hotel is clean (minus the stains on the carpet), and the location has quite a bit near it if you look around. Not bad for a quick stay with just enough stuff to do. Check them out!!!
  • I love this hotel! It's a great location, along a canal, and close to several museums including the Van Gough. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
