  • Loved staying here. It is within walking distance of all museums, and close to many trams if you need. The room is comfortable, spacious, and clean. They provide everything you will need whether you are visiting for business or pleasure. Highly suggest staying here.
  • Our multi-day stay here last week was excellent. Nice room in the museum district. Walked to several museums and Vondel Park. Hot breakfast included. Fitness Center and free washer/dryer. Pleasant, helpful staff.
