눉Lack of soap bars. Trying to shower with a machine dispensed gel that washes away before you can use it a bit pointless.
눇Stayed many times, always a warm welcome. The upgrade to the (in my opinion) best room in the hotel was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.
January 6, 2017
눉My room had an almost inexistent window, but besides that is okay. The place is very simple but has everything one needs.
눇The location is awesome, in the very heart of Amsterdam. The place is clean and the breakfast is good, the rooms are very warm (great thing in winter)
January 5, 2017
눉Not a lot to dislike, It is just clear that the hotel is limited on facilities; for example it isn't vary luxurious. How ever you do get exactly what you pay for, and more in my opinion.
눇Great location and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. 10% discount also for Pancake, Mexican and Italian restaurants across the street and part of the hotel.
January 4, 2017
눉did't get my wake up call, but okay i did set my alarm so no worrys and hot water for tea was lukewarm every morning
눇location, it was near to most places, train station, dam square etc
January 3, 2017
눉The noise from the street and the hotel itself was as though the walls were made out of paper! We were told when we checked in we had one of the quiet rooms. I cannot believe that is true. Also the window was broken so that didn't help. Drinking every night did help with the noise but if you are intending to have a quite holiday the noise will ruin it for you.
눇Location was brilliant. Staff were lovely. We paid a lot to stay here however it was over New Years so it was still one of the cheapest.
December 30, 2016
눉The rooms are not comfortable and very small and it's really dirty under the beds.
눇We liked the location and thank god our rooms were not on the road so we were able to sleep. The breakfast was nice and their pizza and pasta restaurant was good.
December 26, 2016
눉1-The staff is not friendly and we waited 20 mins at the reception when we arrived. 2-The rooms are obviously dirty besides being smaller as they should be! 3-The hotel asks for the money at arrival, which is completely impolite and unprofessional :( 4-The breakfast buffet is a scandal: very limited varieties and poor taste..even the coffee!!
눇A good location but a noisy street
December 14, 2016
눉The room was basic but I was expecting that and the breakfast could have a bit more option. Also my room was very hot (but all this wouldn't put me off again)
눇Incredible location! That's why you're paying the money for this hotel. The staff are so nice and friendly too!
December 13, 2016
눉Our room was on the 5th floor, but the lift only went up to the 4th floor. Our friends stayed in a 5* hotel up the road from us and still paid less than us for an amazing hotel room. Not entirely sure why this hotel was so pricey.
눇Free wifi was beneficial when trying to find ways around the city.
December 6, 2016
눉Our rooms were dirty. Bathroom floor specially. Table in the room was stained. Bedroom floor full of hair and dust. We had to clean up ourselves; it was disgusting. We will never go there again. We know we paid a lot of money for the location, but it doesn't mean they should give us dirty rooms, without even a hairdryer. It has 3 stars, it should look at least decent.
눇The location and the breakfast.
December 1, 2016
눉The room was not like photos. We expected something a little better.
눇The location was the best thing in this hotel. Red district and restaurants were very near.
November 17, 2016
눇We had a 4 day stay at the doria hotel , rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable , location is amazing , will definitely be back to stay at the doria in the near future
November 17, 2016
눉Was on 4th floor. Doors would open and close up until 5 AM. Facility lacks hair dryer. Was luck to have KLM Crown lounge for better shower amenities.
눇Location, location! Smell of pizzeria walking in. Fast check-in. Low cost for overnight stay in Amsterdam before flying out the next morning. Red Light District was around the corner. Popular street once you walk out.
November 3, 2016
눉The rooms are basic but being in Amsterdam, its about you making the most of the outside.
눇The location is perfect for central Amsterdam and the lady who checked me in was so warming and professional. I had a sight problem with the room door and was upgraded. Thank you as you really made me enjoy my stay. The guys in the breakfast hall where very friendly.
October 30, 2016
눉The room was expensive for what it was. Also there was building work going on across the road and this was supposed to be a restful break we were awak early.They took more money out of my account than what was originally agreed. There was pubic hair in the bath and decor dated very overpriced
눇The location was excellent
October 30, 2016
눉Very difficult to get into the shower as we had to climb over the toilet to get into it
눇Beds were comfortable everything clean and staff friendly breakfast was good
October 6, 2016
눉The mattress didn't seem to fit the bed properly. It felt like I had to be careful not to fall out. When I showered I had to keep the window open otherwise the smoke alarm went off.
눇Good location. Clean. Nice hot shower.
October 5, 2016
눉Well, it was cost me 170 Euros for two night, over weekend it might still the best option in downtown, but for that kind of room it's overpriced. A bit noisy outside (but what do you want if you stay practically on Dam square :-) ) Rest room has "super-compact" size :-) (never seen that size before)
눇Location is the best (30 m from Dam square, 50 m from Red lights district), just in the heart of the city. The breakfast is good enough (what they called "continental")
September 26, 2016
눉No full length mirror in 1 of the rooms
눇Location for this hotel could not have been any better. Rooms were very basis but beds were changed and fresh towels everyday. The loan of kettle and iron if needed. Breakfast was continental but brilliant place to sit and people watch.... Would book here again with out any doubt. Staff were helpful and for the price the location could not be any better.
September 22, 2016
눉Toilets with bad smell , towels was so old , nothing good to live as per payment
눇We booked bed room with king size bed , you can say double room but it was like small cubical where you can sleep only, there was small table in corner which big enough for laptop only , it was worse bed room ever, only location was good and they arrange taxi for you with good price.
September 19, 2016
눉Due to 31degree heat we really could of being doing with air con in the room.
눇Breakfast was well presented and there was a good choice. Staff were extremely helpful and accommodating
September 17, 2016
눉The bed was too soft. There was no cereal and milk for breakfast.
눇The location! Right in the heart of the city and within walking distance of main attractions.
September 15, 2016
눉Rooms and bathroom were very small.
눇Location of the hotel was perfectly within walking distance from the central train station and tourist attractions. The staff were also very friendly and the hotel had its own restaurant.
September 8, 2016
눉The price- When you run a business its hard not to try charge everyone such a high price but it could have been a bit cheaper.
눇I liked the location- absolutely perfect
August 31, 2016
눉The hotel beds are worst and in very bad condition. Room and bathroom are smaller than you can think. No basic amenities were provided. The lady on first day was not very helpful but the gentleman second day assisted us very well and he was very knowledgeable. Don't expect early check in even if you are half and hour early. There are some better options available in the same area so don't waste your money.
눇The location is great. very easily accessible for all the major attractions in Amsterdam.
August 31, 2016
눉One of the windows of my room did not close leading to noise from the street coming through easily. The room was not properly clean, we've stayed for 3 nights and day after day we would find hairs in the bathroom. The bathroom was old and very tinny, and even in one of the rooms we had to leap the toilet to get to the shower. Someone who's more taller than 6'1 can not seat in the toilet due to the distance to the wall in front of it. For 140€ a night I was expecting more quality.
눇Top location. Right in the heart of the old city, near to everything. The breakfast was great, with croissants all sorts of bread and fresh fruit. The wifi had great coverage in the first floor. The receptionist kept our luggage in a safe room after the check out so we could get more out of our last day in Amsterdam.
August 23, 2016
눉The toilet was a bit small, had to climb over the toilet to get to the shower.
눇Fantastic location and the staff were great. The bedrooms were clean and the beds are really comfortable.
August 23, 2016
눇This hotel is small rooms are compact but location is ideal just of Dam Square. It was very clean but I taught a little expensive for the size of room Three beds two of which were head to toe.
August 21, 2016
눉Like most things in Amsterdam now it's slightly expensive. Although it's probably the cheapest and best hotel in that area.
눇Staff are really friendly. The location couldn't be better. Rooms are exactly what you need. And free wifi!
August 20, 2016
눉Room sizes are small, but this is to be expected when 10 seconds from the literal center of Amsterdam. One of the rooms a friend stayed in on the first floor had a Questionable (at best) positioning of the beds, they seemed too close to the window to open it past 1/4 the way, and moving it the other way to open the window would stop anyone from being able to use the toilet. Bare in mind, depending on what you are going there for, you may or may not be spending the majority of your time in the Hotel.
눇Was not bothered by any of the staff which is good in Amsterdam :D The free WiFi worked great in all areas of the hotel, even the top floor had less than 5% signal loss at all times which is great if you wish to share photos or Skype, or anything really.
August 16, 2016
눉The rooms were basic,rather hot and stuffy and minimal comfort but the basics were available and we got what we paid for so no complaints.
눇The close proximity to places we wanted to visit.Easy walking distance.The staff were helpful and we liked the breakfast location close to the street so we could people watch.
August 15, 2016
눉The room was small and the bed wasn't very good. For those who have problems sleeping, the hotel was in a very busy street. People walking by and making noise the whole night.
눇The location is excelent and the breakfast is good.
August 4, 2016
눉The rooms were small, but had everything needed if you aren't planning on spending much time in your room.
눇For a cheap city break it is the perfect hotel. Right in the centre and only 10 minutes walk from the station. Despite being surrounded by bars and restaurants it was quite.
August 4, 2016
눉Breakfast is very poor, noise is unbelievable since the doors and walls are isolating nothing, I mean you cannot sleep after before 11.30pm or after 6am! Towels SHOULD be replaced by new ones, they are really really old and consumed.
눇The location is the best in the whole city.
August 2, 2016
눉Not really sure what could've been better because we got exactly what we paid for and expected
눇The bed was very comfortable, excellent facilities and the staff were very helpful. Worth every penny
July 29, 2016
눉Couldn't smoke in the hotel.
눇Great location - very central & friendly staff. Beds were comfy. Never tried the breakfast but the option was there. We were at the front looking over the Main Street and it wasn't too noisy. Would recommend.
July 28, 2016
눉The hotel and room badly need a good lick of paint. The walls in my room were filthy and their was no air conditioning . The staff were very friendly and the location was great . This hotel is in bad need of modernisation.. I would stay here again if I couldn't find anywhere else to stay ..
July 26, 2016
눇The bed was really comfy and staff lovely brilliant location just think the rooms are a little small for the money but it's central so kinda to be expected
July 15, 2016
눉I don't really have any complaints to be honest. The rooms and bathrooms are quite small but I wasn't looking for luxury, just somewhere to lay my head at night.
눇The location couldn't have been more perfect! Short ten minute walk to Central Station, just off the square, near the district. Just fantastic. The staff were so nice and helpful. While the rooms are quite small they were spotless!
July 14, 2016
눉The stairs! Thankfully there is a lift Rooms can be very warm but there is a fan Basic for price paid - at almost €400 for three nights it should have been so much better!!
눇Hotel was spotless Extremely well placed just minutes from Dam Square and within close walking distance to the station Shower was extremely powerful I
July 10, 2016
눉Well.. single room is extra small However manageable.. no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast should be better.
눇Location is excellent. Walking distance to all major attractions. 15 mins walk from central station. Reception staff very helpful and cooperative.. very quick check in & out. Safe is available in the room
July 9, 2016
눉Room was a bit small.
눇Great location!! Staff very friends and helpful. Bedroom was a little on the small side but other than that it was perfect for being in the city centre.
July 6, 2016
눉No major negatives only positive experience.
눇-Location -Clean tidy rooms and bathroom with fresh towels -Friendly staff. Made you feel welcome. -Great little breakfast to start the morning. -Excellent value for money. -Non smoking rooms -Lift inside hotel. Unusual for Amsterdam.
July 5, 2016
눉The ONLY thing.... Maybe invest in some new towels, they looked a little tired.
눇Excellent central location, easy to find, clean, comfortable room, great shower. TV, alarm clock and safe provided. Helpful, friendly staff. Decent breakfast... Not lots of choice.. Enough for a good start to the day though. Would definitely recommend.
July 3, 2016
눉The cleaning staff started to make the rooms at 7.30 am so we were woken up by the vacuum cleaner...a little bit noisy inside.
눇Excellent location! 500 m from central station, 3 minutes from red district and madame tussaud. Good breakfast, basic but comfortable room. Nice helpfull sfaff.
June 26, 2016
눉It´s said that is a 3 stars, the price is for a 4 stars and the comodities it´s not just 2. We got a room in the upper part of the hotel, it was a real sauna! At least 40 C in the room, it was not possible to sleep. The breakfast was very poor, I´m allergic to the lactose, they have nothing for me!
눇The location is the only good of this hotel.
June 25, 2016
눉room was tiny. it barely allowed a single bed in it and almost had no space to open the luggage. a bit of renewal to bathroom furniture would help.
눇location, in the very center
June 21, 2016
눉The breakfast in the morning is very low quality- I was expecting for Euro140/night to put there more than some eggs, cheese and bread...so expect very basic. In the first night we experienced some issues with allergy or parasitis (we still don't know)- we complaint the next day at the reception and they changed the mattress, the linnen and cleaned the room. I was ok after this but my friend not, still experienced some issues. Our room was very small (was under the roof, maybe this was the reason and was the last available room in that day). The bathroom is very small and they have no hairdryer. The walls are very thin and you can hear neighbours roaring or walking and closing (loudy) the doors (very annoying in the sleeping hours).
눇The staff attitude is nice. The hotel is located very central, near National Monuments, on Dam street, right near RedLight district. We complaint about a problem second day and they reacted and tried to solve this. The wifi worked very well.
June 20, 2016
눉Nothing bad to say about this hotel, everything was perfect!
눇The varied breakfast was heavenly! And the staff is very helpful and friendly - we loved every minute! Having an elevator was a big plus too!
June 19, 2016
눉Facilities a a bit old, a lot of noise coming from the street. With earplugs I could sleep very well anyway
눇Cleanliness was excellent, the location is super central, the price was half of any other hotel around
June 18, 2016
눉The room smelt of stale smoke despite being non-smoking. Very small with no mini bar or kettle. Tiny bathroom.
눇Location was good if you want to be in the busy centre. Clean.
June 9, 2016
눉Room was adequate but basic, very small closet for clothes, no shelves to stack clothes. Very tiny room, just enough space for a single bed and small desk and very small closet. Bathroom small but clean. This hotel is in a very noisy area so if you cannot tune out loud street notice for most of the night and other guests banging doors this is not for you. Staff were nice. But definitely a very basic room.
눇Breakfast was good and plentiful and am grateful my room was at the back.
June 9, 2016
눇The hotel location was excellent. The rooms We're clean and tidy. Very comfy beds. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful always had a smile on there face. I will be back!!
June 7, 2016
눉The room was very warm and the fan was broken so was very loud and not very efficient.
눇Perfect location, breakfast had a lot of option, checking in and out was easy, great availability of vouchers for attractions and city map and facilities such as having a safe in the room was ideal.
June 6, 2016
눉Bed was not good ( sunken) Space around Toilet was very limited Noise Safe not working ( need only battries) but said can't fix it
눇Location, staff, breakfast was good Value of money
June 6, 2016
눉I got a receipt upon payment and not an invoice (which is compulsory to get a refund from my employer). When I asked the person at the reception desk, she told me that no such thing as an invoice ('faktuur') existed. Quit strange for an international hotel.
눇Very good quality of bed.
May 29, 2016
눉Single room extremly small and a little noisy from outside. No elevator to reception desk from street one flight of stairs
눇Excellent location. Very small room but very clean. Decent continental breakfast Free Wi Fi Would stay again.
May 26, 2016
눇The breakfast was good, and the staffs are friendly. After a terrible, cheating staying experience at Hotel Moulin Vert in Paris, I moved to Doria for staying another 5 nights. In contrary to the cheating Hotel Moulin Vert, I got everything as booked. The breakfast was good, they even provided a bread heater. The room was quite clean, and they have an escalator, which is often lacked in hotels in Amsterdam.
May 24, 2016
눉Breakfast is very basic and bland ! Single room was small but manageable
눇The Location was centralised next to DAM The cleanliness of the location, room and the bed was comforting!Reception was friendly and helpful! Heating controlled in room and comfortable.Safe in room !
May 24, 2016
눉The triple room was small with all the luggage, but knowing Amsterdam houses it was ok.
눇The bed was very comfy n soft. They gave us all that we requested which included an extra fan as we were 3 n it was hot. The breakfast was good. The place is very centrally located. Very friendly and helpful staff.
May 22, 2016
눉Slow internet and no coffee and tea facilities, breakfast is boiled egg only no choices, staff is not smilling, all towels was to old it turns black,no extra socket and places was noisy
눇It's was near in every sight seeing places many restaurant
May 21, 2016
눉Breakfast , cereal or cooked would have been more to my liking .
눇Breakfast was ok not really to my taste but that would apply to any continental breakfast . Bed was very comfy and had a lovely shower in the morning .
May 20, 2016
눉Taking into account people of a certain age,placed on the fifth floor. However, being fit, I did not mind the extra floor to climb, lift stops at the fourth floor
눇Friendly welcome,and very helpful
May 17, 2016
눉I had a single room at the top of the building which despite a generous window was uncomfortably warm. Glad it was May and not July!
눇Fantastic location and super friendly staff made for a hassle free stay.
May 16, 2016
눉The room was small and very hot. There was no plug in the wash basin and no bath mat. We could not open the window to get some fresh air in. When we arrived the room was not ready although we had been told it would be. The breakfast was adequate but not very inspiring.
눇The location was good - very near Dam Square.
May 15, 2016
눉some construction across the street make noise, but it nothing to do with the hotel. when the window is closed cant hear anything
눇location location location! nice hotel, basic utilities, nice simple breakfast, good coffee, yamiiii pizza few minutes by walk to central train station, very helpful staff, the manager Isi so nice and helpful, enjoyed my stay very much!
May 8, 2016
눇Small but adequate The toilet was stuck in the corner and I could imagine a bigger person would have difficulty fitting into that corner
May 4, 2016
눉Room TOO small. I had to keep my luggage closed on the floor beside the bed. Bathroom dark.
눇Location and the concierge Ruben, who helped me a lot. There's a restaurant connected to the hotel, which helps a lot.
May 3, 2016
눉Since we came with a small child, we expected few basic facilities like hot water kettle, which would have been very useful, if it was available. A bigger table inside the room would have helped to keep our things. Two plug points are above the almirah, which is not at all reachable/ usable. It should be in a reachable position. Only one plug point was above the heater, but we couldn't charge it there, as the charger gets hot.
눇Very friendly, supportive and service minded staff. Kudos and thanks to them. We felt homely.
April 29, 2016
눉Given you're practically sleeping over Dam Sq., it's quite loud - the room had double windows which isolated most but not all of the noise. Invest in earplugs and you'll sleep like a baby.
눇Excellent location if you're up for being in the thick of things; small but comfy and very clean. Plus, very decent heating in rooms, which can otherwise be a problem in NL.
April 26, 2016
눉Two single beds! Top floor has no lift, which mean a walk up two flights of stairs with your luggage.
눇10 minutes walk from Centraal Station, 20 yards from Dam square, 100 yards from Red Light District. Perfect location. Staff were very helpful.
April 26, 2016
눉The room was really small (if I open my arms I could touch the two walls!) and my duvet was dirty when I arrived.
눇The location is excellent, near the train station and main attractions.
April 21, 2016
눉I didn't sleep at all the first night I was there due to noise levels/discomfort. Staff were helpful in asking my extremely loud neighbours to be quiet on several occasions, but unfortunately they would just get noisy again 20 mins later (til 6.30am) and the walls are so thin I could hear them chatting from across the hall. Bed was smaller than a single and pillows were hard. Shower ran hot or cold but no in-between.
눇Staff were really friendly, polite and helpful. The pizza from the restaurant is great. The location is very central and you can walk to many big tourist attractions. Great central location if you don't plan on sleeping much.
April 19, 2016
눉Would have liked to have had a few more English tv channels available , but besides that, was a great stay
눇The staff were absolutely great... Super friendly and helpful... Location was in the heart of Dam square giving us easy access to many things.. Enjoyed the stay very much.. The pizza shop which is part of the hotel was superb.. We ate more of that than anything else on this trip.. Would definitely visit again..
April 19, 2016
눉They gave us a room where it was nothing like the picture. The window was positioned so the the light would be right in your face. You can hear everyone walking around and it was so loud at night. The room was so small. Found 4 star hotels near the area for way cheaper. Not worth the money.
눇Location was good.
