  • Easy accessed on public transport, Trams, Buses. Metro is only ten minutes walk away. Bars on the south side near the concert hall.  more »
  • There are several good quality museums here close together. We love the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. The I amsterdam sign was fun to watch, when it was still there.  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.
