    The hotel was clean, safe and on a quiet side street very close to the major museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, etc). It was also very accessible to public transportation and easy to walk to other parts of the city.

    The location is very good. You are not in the center of Amsterdam but also you’re not that far, which is excellent for me. There’s a big park right next to the hotel. We arrived way earlier than the check in time and the staff were nice to let us...
