  • That is a great place to walk around and have some lovely talk with your loved one. I highly recommend it when it is sunny, even though it is not often sunny in Amsterdam..  more »
  • We just liked to enjoy the exterior of each of the museum so it was the best place to hang around. The time during our visit was definitely peak because it was Sunday afternoon and there were so many....  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.
