Location and staff Internet services not included in package
hotel staff and clean the Spa
soft and comfirtable bed You have to pay for everything such as internet, phone calls, TV, etc. Service was poor. Prices are relatively much higher than other similar hotels.
very comfortable bed and soft sheets front door was not working so had to use side door
central position for visiting amsterdam Impersonal feeling with pseudo design furniture
good location, great comfortable beds and nice gym and sauna area
Great geographic location Fee parking for the car Fitting out of the hotel entry not indicated on website. Worse soundproofing of the room windows.
location There internet.
The hotel was pretty fine, clean and with good style. Very close to the center. The room was big enought for all family. We didn't got any breakfast at hotel, but during the boat cruise, the stop is very close to the hotel. Miss the boiler for have some tea in the room. The remote control of TV almost died.
The hotel is superbly situated just off the Leidesplein and easy walking to the main shopping streets and bars The room was a little style over function and the double bed was 2 singles pushed together. It was also a little noisey, not to bad but depends on your neighbours as the rooms are connected by a joining door and the walls are not thick.
Staff were very helpful and easygoing. Breakfast was very nice. noise from adjacent rooms, having to carry my bags up and down very narrow and steep staircases. The lifts were so small, I could not fit in with my luggage, and had to be in the lift to push the button.
Beautiful hotel, Room cleaning is handled all day long, not as usual only in the morning. This is not optimal if you have children who need to sleep in the afternoon
not a nice welcome. changed room three times before we got an acceptable room
great location, nice staff, nice rooms, great atmosphere. I'll be happy to come again. no aircondition in the room which is a problem when the weather is hot. when opening the window you sometimes suffer noise from the street.
location is great, very central, easy to access everywhere the room we stay is super small, and the stairs were super thin. in d room we can see dust! can hardly move anywhere. too small for 2 persons. it looks boutique from the outside, but the is not. not value for money at all comparing to other hotels around that area.
The friendlyness of the staff was second to none, and it was absolutly beautiful room
Nice room, bedding, etc., convenient location, and helpful staff. Room 101 (below street level) would not connect to the wifi and was below the reception/lobby area, so you heard steps/luggage overhead.
Fabulous location. I walked everywhere. Easy to catch the Conexxion shuttle bus to and from airport-5 Euros! Staff helpful. Room is soooooo tiny. Compact-like the size of a king sized bed-only that the entire room. I managed and I was alone. if I had booked for 2 people it would have been interesting.
Total confusion on check in and taken to sister hotel, (Roumer) Very little explanation. The room though was very nice and on a quiet street so maybe in the end it all worked out. Just the check in experience, staff also seemed vague about the wherebaouts of another hotel that I had to attend the next day and would have sent me to a completely different place, if I hadn't double checked myself.
Location Too hot
Staff were brilliant, Location, Value for money
The staff Room slightly small
Spacious room for Europe. There was construction all weekdays, they started at 9am mon-fri. There was no warning of this from the hotel. Otherwise was decent. Good heat. Very little mildew in the bathroom. Not bad for a budget hotel. Loud in the morning
The room was big & comfortable. The breakfast was poor. The cooked breakfast eggs were inedible, thebacon undercooked, and cold boiled eggs. No crossants available when I asked for them. Generally it was not up to standard. All though there was free internet access provided, the hotel receptionist did not know how to print anything. So we could not print off our return flight boarding cards.
The bed was really comfortable. And the bathroom was squeaky clean. Although the location of the hotel is very near to the Leidse Square, it is not on the main street so you don't get the noise from street traffic. Some rooms for one person have been remodeled. This time I had a room that was smaller than shown on the website and the layout was also a little different (-). But it was located in a more quiet part of the hotel (+).
Everything. It was a great place to stay.
Location, it was near a convienant tram stop that takes you streight to the red light district. The hotel internet was expensive.
walking distance to the centre but in quiet location
good stuff , location , the rooms need to be bigger ,but its fine
The Location is perfect
Everthing in general the room was spacious very comfortable and the beds were soft and roomy.
comfortable room they should have a remodelation of the lobby. Stairs in the entrance and no ramp to walk in the baggage. they didnt serve me a simple coffe at 11.00 a.m, they told me the bar was closed.They should really improve the staff service it doesnt look professional.check out at 11.00 a.m
Generally was very friendly atmosphere Small beds; liking taps
The hotel is in the centre; it is quiet; the rooms are nicely decorated; the windows are big and can be opened; the hotel is interesting. The rooms are small for 2 persons; the rooms were not carefully cleaned during our 3 nights stay (mainly the floor - carpet); a cloth hanger in the bathroom would be nice; more convenient storage room for "long" coats and dresses.
I loved the different themes in the rooms. It made the stay interesting and enjoyable, not like I was staying in any old hotel. No parking, but not the hotel's fault.
nice hotel with individual rooms, great topics (philosophy!), place is good, near tram, quite quiet rooms a bit shabby, toilet/shower very small, breakfast too expensive (but you need not to take and pay it); beware of "double" beds!
Culture factor. The philosphy theme. Location in town. Breakfast. Lower room standard than I expected for the price (cosy room).
Front office staff were very helpful, within their capacity to solve problems - for instance, how best to get somewhere. Some, such as an internet system that was constantly breaking down, were not within their capacity. Cramped bedroom - no proper hanging space. Internet access very poor. Safe did not lock. Only one tiny piece of soap was offered. Lighting was very poor in rooms - difficult to read. No ironing board. Air-conditioning unreliable - public spaces overheated. Much more concerned with appearance than functionality.
friendly staff and clean throughout. rooms slightly tight
The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. While remaining professional they were warm and welcoming. My son would often join me for a drink after work and we enjoyed sitting in the living room of the lobby. At breakfast one member of the staff (Sau (?) always remembered what I liked and greeted me with smile and a cup of coffee. All and all, I could not have been more pleased in terms of the facility, location, and personel. My rooms were attractive, but in both, 21 and ? the closet was practically inaccessible. One must sit on the bed to open the doors.
Location was brilliant - quiet but just around the corner to lively square. Hotel clean, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast great, rooms fantastic!
Very friendly staff, nice big and clean bathrooms, good breakfast. Also the room was really nice and dark with the curtains closed so you can seep really well. Our room was on the lower ground floor and we got a lot of noise from people in other rooms and above us.
good location - near museums and public transporation cost of breakfast
Location and very attentive staff. Paying for internet access in room.
Guests are given unlimited free drinks (of any sort) and snacks are always available. The hotel is advertised as having a restaurant. There is room service (very good) and hot breakfasts to order, but a restaurant for dinner is in a sister hotel down the block.
Lovely boutique hotel that lived up to the description on website. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. A very minor point but would have expected more luxurious bathroom products to live up to the luxurious standard of bedroom and bathroom!
The staff was friendly and helpful. They spoke excellent English and Dutch. The location was excellent and close to P.C Hooft Straat, which I think should be emphasized in the hotel manual/guide. The hotel was also right next to the Vondel park. It was close enough to the leidseplein for a short walk but far enough to away from the rowdiness. The complimentary liquor in the room was highly appreciated. The toiletries should be replenished every day, especially shampoo and body soap. The proximity of my room (room 18) to the service area meant that early in the morning I could hear the breakfast serviced being prepared quite clearly. The door and insulation for rooms close to the kitchen should be thicker. The curtains on the windows were blackout curtains which were nice, but I would have also preferred there to be curtains through which light can pass through to help adjust to the new timezone. It was either completely dark or completely exposed with these curtains - and being right next to the hotel courtyard meant that the windows were at eye level for anyone there.
Very central position - comfortable hotel. Didnt think necessary for towels to be taken away everyday especially as they were then never replaced!
The staff are very nice and helpful. Location is close to the main tram line which will take you to any major attractions. I love their breakfast which has a very wide and generous selection of food, and ham. I'll absolutely stay in this same hotel again. Thank you NH!
The location is very convenient to go to all touristic places.
I would like to have breakfest already at 6:30 AM
Staff was very helpful. Decent size rooms. Great breakfast Small bar
Great location. Easy access to tram and canal boats. Room was very clean and nice. Also bed was very comfortable. Staff and bell captain were very helpful and nice upon arrival. Made us feel very welcome and safe. Nothing.
Hotel is located in the center of the town 5 min walking distance to Rijksmuseum. Basic amenities are there, all relatively new. Rooms are on the smaller side but can't expect more given the location. Very clean and well maintained. When asked the staff were I can park the car they have sent me to a parking that costed 68 Euro for the night without even mentioning the price (paid at the exit in the morning). Extremely slow internet almost unusable.
I cannot recommend this hotel I pre-paid this hotel via booking.com (14-Sep-10). However on check-out after a two night stay (11-11-10 / 13-11-10), I discovered that NH Amsterdam Centre had charged my card for the full amount (561.70 euro) a second time! As of 18/11/10 I have not received a refund. Will never stay in an NH Hotel again! I advise if you stay in this hotel, check your credit card statements when you get home!
location, breakfast price too high, some stuff very cool and distanced, water in the shower hardly warm (for 4 star hotel this is disgrace), hotel is not at all luxurious, very boring and no atmosthere, no price list for mini bar; hotel cosmetics very poor quality; the only good thing about this hotel is location;
We liked the location of the hotel and the staff which was very helpfull and nice. When we came to the hotel, we got the room which was not cleaned yet but then, after informing the reception thereof, we were upgraded to a better room, so we couldn´t complain at all.
Comfortable rooms and attentive staff. The front desk was very helpful upon our arrival in helping to orient ourselves as well as providing restaurant suggestions.
The location of NH Amsterdam is excellent. The staff was not friendly and they have passed much inaccurate information to me during my stay. The rooms are very small
Great and comfortable hotel. Conveniently located near restaurants, bars, shops!
It is a modern hotel, comfortable, close to the centre and not too close so one does not get a night's sleep. Perfect. I would certainly stay there again! Nothing.
This hotel was fantastic. Rooms were exactly like the pictures. It was very clean and the room was a really good size. Free wifi was an added bonus. Food a little bit expensive - breakfast not a very good deal. It's a little bit further from the centre of Amsterdam however please don't let that put you off as the No. 1 tram stops right outside and takes 10 minutes to the Dam and other destinations
It was in front of the tram line 1, which takes you to the centre in 5-10 minutes. The room was clean. Parking seems for the service and cleaning staff and it has no direct access to tower B (you will see why this is important) but to the reception through a strange door which does not even say this. If your room is in tower B you have to pick up 2 elevators and walk through strange doors which are uncomfortable and useless. Forgetting something at the room or just getting to it more than once in a day it is uncomfortable and painful. Only the distance to the centre is nice, but many unfinished renovation work (e.g. Parking, visible tubes, etc), getting to tower B, small rooms and unfair quality-price forces me to not recommend you this hotel.
The first three nights I stayed the internet did not function in my room, only in the lobby. I inquired many times but to no avail. I decided to give the hotel one more chance as i had to extend my stay and I was given a wonderful room with a great view, and working internet! Not sure it was an upgrade price wise, but it was indeed comfortable and made me very happy to know my best interest as a customer was being regarded. The bathrooms in both rooms I had were really great, and the staff is very friendly. Lastly next door is a big gym with a pool, for 20 euro a day you can do your workout there. It was supposed to be a deal, but actually the price is 20 euro regardless of whether or not u are a guest in the hotel. I think this hotel just has a few growing pains, it is new. The location is about 10 minutes by tram from leidseplein, so not really walking distance when it is cold. I was annoyed at first the internet problem in my room was not rectified quickly enough, however such is life, and Amsterdam is a great city with many hotels so it is luck of the draw I suppose.
nice atmosphere, stylish rooms friendly staff relatively expensive added cost for parking
the comfortable bed. and the veranda small bedroom, no fridge, expensive
the room was very pretty and clean, very fancy design, but functional all over. loved the little eco messages from the towels and the soap bottle the price was a bit high, but the part taht I did not like at all was that the city tax was not included in the price listed - it wasn't much, but still
it has an excellent location. i find that it is typical of most hotels in amsterdam rooms small, smoking of dope in hotel even though not permitted. there was noise on some nights from other rooms.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet street in the center of Amsterdam. Clean room. Small room (1 person), but this is not really a problem if you just need a place to sleep.
The location was excellent. Walking distance to all the major attractions, friendly staff. Hotel was clean, room adequate. The ceiling in the room and bathroom was too low. My husband is 6'4" and kept hitting his head= could not stand up straight in the shower. Also, the doors could use closers...you could hear doors slamming late at night from neighbors coming in late.
The staff has been very helpful Our room had only a small window facing a wall (about 40 cm from the window)
The hotel is in a very good location for the main museum and entertainment districts of Amsterdam. The rooms are simple yet comfortable and the facilities of the hotel are reasonable. The breakfast continental was acceptable for the price. For the price I'd normally expect tea and coffee facilities in the room.
Room was at floor level and too noisy.
I think the hotel staff was very nice and helpful, and the hotel in general was excellent compared to the cheap prices. The location was very good, near the pub area and near a tram station, but still the street was quiet and no trouble to get to sleep. I would wish that the bathroom was a bit warmer.
For sure Location!! Just was what we looking for. Good ratio price/hotel!! If an other trip in Amsterdam will book in this hotel. Was a bit noisy for people who would like to stay longer in a bed. Also cannot closed the window and the room was street side even if it's a quiet street.
It is a small, nice and homelike hotel
Awesome room at agreat price! NO
My room was on the top floor, it was very hot in May. I was given an air conditioning unit which helped me to sleep as it cooled the room giving a lovely breeze. Everywhere was clean and the lift great for the top floor! The staff were courteous and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
This was a great hotel. Amsterdam hotels are not cheap but we chose this as it had been refurbished and looked like a 'proper' hotel! It turned out to be a good decision as the hotel was very well placed location wise and the staff were great. As its not part of a chain, there is no functioning reception in the evenings or room service at any time. Also no tea or coffee facilities or phone in the room. to be honest though this doesnt matter as the rooms are nice, modern and clean. Stairs are a bit steep if you are on one of the upper floors though! Overall we were very pleased and will return there if possible next time we stay.
frendly hotel staff, perfect location, modern interier in room
it was quiet no bar facilities, bit small felt like a B&B
I had a terrace in the middle of Amsterdam and a nice chat for breakfast. Perfect :)
The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were beautifully put together. Nothing...
The room was very clean, breakfast nice and fantastic coffees in the morning, which started my days off very well. Great location, handy for everywhere
HIP Design clean enough very narrow stairs..we could hardly carry our luggage dwn the staırs to our room..
We enjoyed the size of the room, the comfort of the bed, the friendliness of the staff, the view, the size of the boutique hotel, the location and the complimentary coffee! For the price, breakfast should have been included. Also, there is no door on the shower which was somewhat uncomfortable but not a huge deal.
A very good location, friendly stuff at the reception. When we reserved a room it was described as 'Spacious room with a luxurious decoration', but actually we've got an extremely small room with a very small bathroom in one corner. It was impossible even to unpack, let alone move around the room. Also the room service only operates for couple of hours, so if you sleep late or stay in the room because of rain, your room doesn't get cleaned (though they leave fresh towels in front of the doors). Actually, we were staying for 4 days but only had room service twice. The price is way too high for the value you get, but since it's a very small hotel in the center of Amsterdam it was fully booked so I guess they can get away with that. Definitely not staying there again.
Reception by very friendly people who helped with any question and issue, breakfast really value for money. Booked kingsize bed and luxury room but none of that and hardly any wardrobe space if staying for more than a few days.
I felt that the front desk staff was VERY helpful, the rooms were clean and well accommodated, the ambiance of the hotel was well appointed, it was quiet, and the location was also very nice! The breakfast was not worth the money. There is a really neat restaurant cafe attached to the hotel, called Friday Next. Spend less money and get a better breakfast there. The beds were also VERY soft, a little too soft for me.
Very friendly staff, lovely welcome and room was ready at 11.30am which after an early morning flight was great. Couldnt have wished for better - very clean, room excellent, lovely breakfast selection, fantastic location for sightseeing.
Location. Parking. Hotel advertises that they have "parking permits"; but they don't. You park on the street for 36 Euros/day.
the staff was very friendly and helpful
Convenient location, staff and facilities available for wide range of hours. Staff friendly and helpful.
The staff are very friendly It's ideally situated for my work Other noisy, ignorant guests - nothing that the hotel can do about that!
The staff was the best, very friendly & helpful! My 7 year old daughter loved the sitting area of the lobby too. The location is great!
Very convenient to museums. Also close to Leidseplein for entertainment, dining and transportation. Althought the breakfast and lounge areas were nicely appointed the decor in hallways and rooms is rather stale (though in good condition).
Perfect location, excellent staff, good value for money. room was close to elevator so a bit noisy in the morning if you want to sleep longer.
The hotel was simple and basic and priced very fair. My single room was tiny and had a little single bed, but it was what I expected for a low price. Since I was traveling alone and spent very little time in my room all I cared about was that the room seemed safe and clean; it was definitely both of those. The employees were all very friendly and polite as well!
Great location on a quiet street. We will go back another time.
The nice mood More half an hour to the breakfast
Very nice and helpful staff, great location, very central! I liked it a lot! toilet is very small (but clean!), just one little hook in the shower, so i had trouble hanging my cloths before taking a shower...
I have stayed at Hotel Abba our separate times and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Location, price,facilities and general ambience make this probably the best budget hotel anywhere that I have used in recent years. Not applicable.
It's really near to the city center and Museums zone. Breakfast it's not the best thing for a hotel but it's included in the fee :-) So it was fine...
Great location and very cheap Very basic no amenities.
Staff was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms looked worn out. They could have used a fresh coat of paint at least...
Was given a hairdryer to keep in the room for duration of stay which was very helpful. Breakfast was simple but very good with plenty of everything.V central for sights. The front stairs seem to be a meeting point for people to get drunk. This could start at 9.15am. They kept to themselves and were no trouble though.
its relaxing the stairs as were not used to them in the uk and not good for all people
Good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
Very surprised by the size of the room. Big for Amsterdam! Great staff!! Nice, clean, spacious, well maintained hotel. Patio doors a little unsecure. Was charged £4 more than advertised and confirmed on booking.com
The staff of the hotel. The couple that owns the hotel are very nice and most helpfull. I was not told that I should pay for the parking and that was a little expensive. They charged me 10,00 euros extra, but...........
Simply perfect - better than we could ever have imagined.
The B&B was well located and the owner was very friendly. It was clean and modern and the bathroom in particular was well appointed. There was only really space for two people to eat breakfast at a time. This could be a problem if all the guests wanted to eat at the same time.
The owner is wonderful. The rooms are excellent. The bed and bathroom could not be better. The Kitchen is well stocked and easy to use. Everyone was wonderful. Our only regret was that we were not staying longer. It was a restful, well considered, and fun place to stay. The owner really knows what travelers want from a Bed and Breakfast. Everything that is great about Amsterdam is close, and there are many excellent restuarants nearby, one is right across the road. A great place to stay, we cannot wait to return.
Ieke was an amazing host, she is so chilled and very helpful. The b&b is spotless, the rooms are lovely with en-suite bathrooms. There is a real family feel to the place, it's more like staying in a friend's house than a hotel. The location is great, the Leidseplein is a few minutes walk away and the tram runs on the next street so it's very easy to get around. All in all a great experience.
Very good contact with Ieke , the owner ! Nice place to visit Amsterdam and nice recommandation to do the best in this great city. The space for breakfast is really so tiny... ;-)))
Being close to the city centre They are quite a few animals for such a small place and it would have been nice to be told in advance. Two of them are parrods who keep squeaking during the day what makes impossible to have a nap. Also it's a complicated operation to get out through the main door because of the birds flying away. The room was very small and hot and during the stay of three days the towels were not changed even once.
Size of the room, location, interior, free Internet access Room's noise insulation should be better: a little bit noisy in the morning because of people movements in the lobby
Very helpful stuff. Location was very good.
quiet location, good breakfast noisy when elevator is used
Very friendly and helpful staff - feel like home when staying there especially if travel alone. A sheer variety of sumptous breakfast. Impressive flower beds and cute garden everywhere. Comfortable and cute room decoration although a bit small. Strike the right balance between convenience and peace, only 5 minutes walk from Leidsplien. Quiet room. Definitely worth the pay in a place like Amsterdam where cost of living is usually very high. Steep and narrow staircase.
The room was cleaned and the towels were changed regularly. The location is very quiet and the room (a triple) was quite comfortable, though the bathroom was rather small. The breakfast was mediocre. The staff (except for the room-cleaner) were very poor. The hotel manager and his wife who run the hotel reminded me of Soviet-era-unsmiling hotel people. When I asked the manager to put a stamp on the receipt he became very annoyed and told me that I consider Netherlands very small and unable to do business. I also failed to get a cup of tea 20 mins after the breakfast finished
Hotel staff were frendly .Location of hotel was nice and quiet but close to public transport and not a bad price. The bed was a bit unconfortable the TV did not work very well and there was and odd smell from the bathroom.
The location was perfect.The room was cleaned everyday. Though the room was rather nice, neither the hotel website nor booking.com had the pictures of the room we stayed at. We expected to have a bigger room as was offered by the websites. Plus, all guests had breakfast at the same time around 9 and it was difficult to find a place to sit down. And if you did manage to sit down, you were forced to eat fast 'cause a lot of people were standing behind you waiting for a table.
Hotel refurbished to high standard; bright and cheerful decor. No soap/shampoo in shower cubicle! Probably newly refurbished.
Staff was very cooperative. Breakfast was good. Location is good. Carpet out side room is very good to be maintained same also in the room. No soap provided in bathroom. No tissue available in room. Curtain in bathroom to be replaced on regular basis as it is common bathroom.
We had read in reviews that the staff would be unpleasant. Quite the contrary. They were absolutely great and so very helpful. thank YOU!Our room was clean and cheery and everything one can expect from a two-star hotel. Bonus: enjoy the flowers and particularly the blue orchids...
Location, stuff, breakfast, room etc. Everthing is perfect.
