Location Scruffy corridors and dark bedrooms
Calmness Had to pay EUR 100 for 4 days of broadband connection. Should be free inside the hotel.
Nothing exceptional springs to mind Badly stocked mini bar. No 24 hour restaurant/coffee shop
The location Furnishing of the rooms
We have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is in an excellent central location. The hotel reception is beautiful and the rooms are also in keeping with this. Our recent room was very clean, comfortable big bed and with all the amenities that you would expect. Prior to this we have stayed in one of the suites which are excellent but of course pricey. The general rooms are a good price - not the cheapest but you do get what you pay for. We didnt book the breakfast as this made the room price too expensive.
המלון עובר שיפוץ בלובי שלא ידענו בעת ההזמנה, אני חושב שזה פרט חשוב לדעת בעת ההזמנה, זה לא היה קריטי אבל רלוונטי. 25-5-2015
The location was the best thing. The rooms were small, inefficient handling of processes and nothing that made me feel it to be a "grand 5* hotel". They should take a lesson from Germans in Efficiency... or another grand hotel in their neighborhood.
NH is the ground zero for Amsterdam
Check in/ out not very efficient
Top Location, Friendly Staff Rooms, even booked early and got a cheap price, do not match at all a 5 star hotel. The room rate compensated a bit for it, but definitely disappointed by a hotel which has such a famous name.
Very relaxed friendly atmosphere
the sauna The price of the breakfast was a bit too much, the rooms were already expencive enough to include breakfast.
The location is very good. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, there are many adventures to find that are just a short walk away.
People at frontera desk were really helpful, nice bar área rooms are modern and comfortable
Location is very good. In the heart of the city. Few minutes walk from the dam square. Breakfast is very good and not too expensive. Air condition is not working in the room. Business rooms are in another building across the street. Rooms are small and not too comfortable. Parking costs 55 euros per day The room is expensive comparing to any other such an hotel in Europe. I was expecting much more...
Very good location; in the centre, but in a calm street. I liked the canal view from my room. Very good shuttle service to the airport. I needed someone to explain me how to switch on the central switch in order to have all electric appliances (including the lights) to work. It should be either connected to the opening of the door or made more clear. There was something strange with the pipes of the tap in the bathroom.
The business suite was very nice: great bedding, spacious. The staff were helpful. The lobby had electrical and usb outlets. My room was in a construction zone accessible only by stairs!! And construction resumed right outside in the morning. They shouldn't put people there, or should start construction later in the day. I also found it a little odd that there would be no usb jack in a business suite.
Gorgeous interior in the heart of the old city. Breakfast was incredible and sumptuous. Staff are warm, friendly, and attentive. Location is fantastic. 1. Heating was a major problem. 2. Parking is a nightmare. 3. Shower hot water not as hot as it should be. 4. Complimentary coffee in the lobby area is absent, though one can pay EUR 2-2.50 for a cup. Should be gratis. Once this is attended to, this will be able to achieve deserved greatness.
Very comfortable I did not get a wakeup call on one day, even though I requested one. Date: July 28,2007
Great Location, nice facilities in the rood, good staff, very nice in general The waitress in the reastarant was once high :) Breakfast is too expensive.
Superb location, friendly and attentive staff, clean and comfortable. A very good value.
situation géographique et le hall This is the list of the main bad points :
The beautiful classic design interiors. The room as well.
The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very kind. My brother lives in Paris and is recommending the Hotel Estherea to any of his friends/associates who are planning to visit Amsterdam. The bar wasn't open until the evening. I would have liked to have a cocktail after I checked in...but there were plenty of places around there to have one - so it was not a big deal.
Great view overlooking the Singel Canal Friendly atmosphere Brilliant location
Location, Lounge, Coffee and goodies at reception Beds hard
Well situated hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably comfortable bedroom, although small. Nice clean and well appointed bathroom. Hotel bedroom was rather small and paintwork on windows peeling.
Everything was excellent. Beautiful old world charm, large spacious room, staff was outstanding in every way with help on questions, places to eat and see and making reservations. No
Cosy, friendly staff. No problems no free wifi
Location, interior design, breakfast, coffee/cakes, most staff Poor window, let in a lot of street noise, with what we paid for 2 nights (c.€380) they could buy a double glazed window (about 4 ft by 3 ft) which would be a big benefit for future users of the room. While most staff were friendly, the receptionist we mostly dealt with was businesslike/efficient rather than friendly. (my wife might use different words!)
Loved the hotel and the staff were incredible. Will always stay there in the future. Room are small but beautiful. Rooms facing the canal had very little storage space.
Good location. Not very modern. Adds 10 years to your life. People 50+ loves it I guess...
location, staff customer service I had to go home early!
I like the location, the services and the cleanliness of my room. The room was reely small.
The staff was very cooperative The room was very small
excellent location, staff, breakfast, great rooms no
friendly staff & excellent buffet breakfast no room service
Location!!! Great breakfast with a selection of delicious food!. THe staff was also very helpful. The beds are little to narrow and too soft for me. The water in the shower never became hot, just warm.
i found it very nice andthe staff were very helpful also the breakfast was lovely
Location and late breakfast No tea/cofee facilities in room
breakfast and location no air conditioning also step to bathroom
The check-in staff (those specific two) they were great fun and welcoming and the cat. The hot (cold!!!) water in the morning and the explanations received at reception (i.e. a once off incident) not true. Every morning same issue all week-end. The lift- you can age 20 years waiting for it.
the location and decor of the hotel The staff was clueless and did not know anything about the city. They were all students. All of the old staff was gone. The hotel charged $30 a day for internet service. This is a change from their past policy it used to be about $10 a day. Still high but tolerable. Their breakfast was very expensive and the quality was poor. I travel to Amsterdam once a year and always stay at the Doelen. Due to recent changes by management I will not stay there again.
The location was good for access to all of the city's attractions. The roadworks immediately outside the hotel and bedroom were intrusive, extremely annoying and unattractive. The only compensation offered by the staff was a pair of free ear plugs and a free drink at another hotel! The furnishings in the room were old, tired and shabby. the bed was stained and in places the room was unclean. The shower was poor. Their was no bar, and the reception looked less than 4 star. This is not a 4 star hotel, and I will be writing to the dutch authorities to question this rating. As such the details are misleading.
the hotel staff, and the hotel is close to important places
Excellent sympathetic staff, flexibility on requests and prompt aid on any question. Close to center (well located) and nice view. Old style equipments (furniture and heating), beds too soft (easily twist back) and twin beds on double rooms.
location they gave us a room with a shared balcony on the first floor which ment that who ever could have free access in our room through the balcony. we explaned the problem and asked them to assign us an another room with no balcony and what they gave us was a room next to the old one: sure there was no balcony but a window, always looking onto the same balcony, common to other clients. i work in the hotel business too and i have never seen such a dusty and unclean hotel room in my life. our stay was short and this is why i didn't want to waiste my time looking for an another place to stay otherwise i would have done it. this hotel needs a completely renovation and is no worth of its four star.
Great staff and good location.
The location was excellent, surely in view of the visit to an exhibition tot the Hermitage Museum, but also in view of the lively neighborhood. No complaints
The location is excellent. The construction work in front of hotel.
reception helpful. The room smells old and the furniture as well. Despite the canal view the single is really small.
While walking in the streets on a cold, windy, snowy, rainy day, the thought of going back to the hotel was pure happyness, as the hotel is so warm and cozy, It starts at the reception, continues in the corridors. Even the pool is warmer than all the pools in other hotels, I used it in the morning before breakfast and before going to bed at night. The extensive opening hours of the pool are a big advantage. The breakfast is the best I travel a lot, stay in nice hotels, none of them compares to this one...best juices, best fresh fruit, best bacon and eggs, best waffles. I loved the hotel tour, especially the wedding chapel and the other room with all the wood sculptures. I also liked the library with the fireplace. Everybody was extremely f I would have preferred a smaller and softer pillow
I hated to leave. Staff and facilities were outstanding. Room was beautiful and luxurious.
Absolutely first class service. Could not do enough for you. Extremely comfortable bed! -
disturbance during stay in room
Great location, helpfull staff, nice interior, cleanliness, convinient bed, complimentary water and sweets every everning, channel and garden view, etc. - everything! To escape any delay connected with checking out the next morning, I was proposed to settle the formalities in the last everning.
Hotel staff was more then nice and helpful For a "Junior suit" (as booked and paid), the room was too small
Hotel helps for every question asked and answers all in the perfect way. No dislikes.
Cleanliness, wonderful architecture and interior design, polite and proficient and friendly staff Nothing. It was perfect
Beautiful and comfortable hotel , Great helpful staff everything was great
The service was great, if I can afford to, Ill stay there again.
The excellent staff and our gorgeous apartment to which we were upgraded Would not include breakfast again; though lovely and convenient it was very pricey given the area. Otherwise a perfect stay!
The staff were professional and extremely pleasant. The location was perfect to see everything Amsterdam has to offer.
This is a luxurious hotel located in the part of the Amsterdam. The service, the food and the staff were among the best that we have ever seen. We would love to go back there again.
The service was amazing! Roland was the best concierge ever. He really made our trip fabulous! Everyone was so friendly Nithing
The fact that the hotel is located in a central area. The hotel has very good facilities.
Everything was of a high level No
Very good location, Nice minibar, Friendly staff I was not given a good room from the beginning. I lost too much time to give us an acceptable room.
Attentive and courteous staff - lovely room with views over city - would definitely stay there again.
Location The breakfast that is supposed to be included is just teas and coffees. You have to pay extra for a cooked breakfast even if your room rate says breakfast is included. The radio in the room started playing on its own early in the morning for no reason, extremely loudly. When we called down for a porter to switch it off, it took him 10-minutes to stop it playing. This woke us up and we couldn't get back to sleep. The staff didn't seem to care about such a major inconvenience.
Its central location, its friendly helpful staff, its comfortable rooms and pleasant atmosphere and there was no language barrier.
The hotel in general, the room, view, location, staff breakfast was too expensive and too poor
The position is quite good. The bed is very comfortable. The hotel is far from being a five stars level. Small rooms, old furniture, noisy, no complimentary services, poor level of service staff. The price paid is too high for what you get.
Comfort of room and helpful staff
Location, price, excellent staff and wonderful building... This was the third time I have stayed at this hotel, and on both previous occasions I was allocated a much larger room than this time around... This time, the room we were given felt a little cramped, especially the bathroom. Also, the room contained only one mirror, inside one of the wardrobe doors, and there was only one bedside table. I will definately use the hotel again in the future for its excellent location, condition and helpful staff, but my fondness for the hotel has been slightly reduced because of the size of our room.
Location, freindliness of staff
2nd stay, had a bathtub this time ++ Central location. Clean. Cheap. We couldn't have a smoking room, even though we indicated a preference for one. The rooms all seemed to have been renovated with hard flooring which made adjacent rooms a lot more noisy.
This is the place to stay for visitors to Amsterdam. Great location near everything. Great restaurants and bars near by. One of the better coffee shops and smart shops just a minute away. Nothing.
The only concern, was the checking in it seem too long and you did have 3 staff on. However th ques for checking in was getting longer as the staff seem to take telephone calls when attending to people checking in.
The staff Lack of information ,should make clear what the hotel offers .ie. breakfast not included no smoking signs ,never saw in rooms but rooms was clean and nice.
easy to access all areas of amsterdam ( very central location) No, everything was great, i enjoyed my stay and will book thier again when i return to Asterdam.
Great central location. I loved the mini-kitchen. The bathroom, however, lacked a full shower door so the bathroom floor was constantly wet after using the shower. The room was very spacious, especially for a European hotel. The carpet and bedding color schemes were horrible.
Sofa bed in room to accomodate young children
Location, staff very helpful and very friendly For the price I believe the breakfast should be included in the price ,
Good location, we had a nice big room although asked for standard. Breakfast could be included or had a better price.
Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely room. Great location. Convenient, pleasant restaurant.
No bar, or comfortable lounge
Overall we had a pleasant stay, due to short notice travel we paid $250 per night whic is way too much for this hotel. The location was very convenient, walk to most tourists attractions and a tourist restaurants. The bedding was clean. Due to the urin smell in the bathroom the hotel gave us breakfast vouchers. This hotel is rated at 4, it is 3 star at best. The interior itself is dated, you can tell they have tried improving it by panting and cleaning the carpets. It is obvious a remodel is in order to bring it up to 4 star standard. I believe most European hotel turn off the ability to run the AC in the winter. With the windows closed the room became rather stuffy, we slept with the window open on the 6th floor with ear plugs in since the partying went on till 4am. The toilet had a constant urin smell even after having the maid clean with bleach and leaving us an air freshener. Maintenance replaced the sink trap but still smelled. My wife called the front desk for a simple question and front desk clerk by the name of Alessio(male with a beard) was rude and condescending.
The hotel was very central and we were upgraded as we wanted a non-smoking room so it was very comfortable with a sofa - beds very good and nice duvets. Husband delighted to get BBC1 and 2 so he could watch the rugby and listen to the cricket highlights!
Absurd! They advertise that there is a free WiFi in the lobby but in fact it is only for the first 20 minutes. On top of it, the bandwidth speed is additionally limited by their software to only 120kbps (about the speed of two dial-up telephone lines). They really made sure that they do not "overspend" on any bytes. Absurd! It felt as the whole hotel is incredibly stingy
Beds were very comfortable, staff helpful and friendly, excellent breakfast, very good location.
We liked the room. The hotel was in quiet area, but still close to "action".
the service is great,the hotel is close to the central of amsterdan.
Staff very friendly and helpful at all times. Was very convient to town centre, and the trams, and Metro In our en suite there was no shower curtain, which made having a shower, awkard trying not to wet the floor (room 123)
Got the (new) triple room - clean, comfortable, plenty of room and quiet. Very friendly, helpful staff, breakfast was simple but filling and included in the price, so great value. Hotel was easy walk to Rembrandtsplein and other main attractions. All in all, given the very reasonable price, highly recommended!
Staying on the canal - something unique to Amsterdam - and reasonably quiet. Not applicable
The staff were friendly and very helpful. offered lots of information and tips for tourists. The rooms were bright, clean and the beds were very comfortable.
location, location- the space of the rooms.... no shower curtain or door for bathing...
The location excellent for starting city exploration wi fi access restricted one mobile device
friendly reception - wifi no elevator
Its location Yes. It took ages to walk from one side to the other and you had to do your ironing in a laundry roon close to the front desk as there weren't any irons available.
The room was very comfortable and lovely and clean.The hotel was very central to everything but in a lovely area.
The location in a beautiful area of the city with good access to communication and travel links. The comfort of the accommodation and the most helpful and courteous staff.
The hotel was clean. The air conditioning did not cool the room well.
Nice hotel,excellent staff,good location!
Please write at least 15 words Professionalism of the staff and beautiful room No tea or coffee in the room and the room stayed quite cold
We like the service the room & central location
Great location. Very good and helpful staff. Canal houses are well known to frequent visitors. First timers with mobility issues (not my problem) should ask for rooms wiht easy access.
Staff and easy availability of bicyles for our use.
I stay in this hotel second time! I like absolutely everything. First time I stayed with husband in most expensive deluxe room. Now in standard. But both of room are perfect!
The hotel has a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere - it's almost like staying at someone's home. You can sit by the fire with a glass of wine (included in the room rate) and read or relax. The breakfast is good, with an extensive buffet and hot dishes prepared to order. Because of the location, which is very central and excellent in most regards, taking a car to the hotel is not advisable as parking is hard to find and very expensive. I would recommend using public transport if possible - it is quite extensive and efficient in Amsterdam.
Excellent location, very comfortable. The staff is very sharp, attentive and friendly. The breakfast is great as is the self-serve bar. I wish they had a gym, though they can send you to a local gym a couple of blocks that's quite reasonable.
Great cozy hotel in a great location. Free beer, wine and evening cheese and snacks is really great. I would recommend to anyone to stay there. The wifi was a bid slow at times but perfectly acceptable most of the time.
All in price drinks snacks and beakfast
Extra little comforts like free coffee and snacks.Breakfast included which was excellent. Staff very efficient. Only that i prefer a bath to taking a shower. But the shower in the room was a good quality one.
All-inclusive (mini bar, food and drinks at the lobby, breakfast)
1. helpful, friendly staff 2. complimentary snacks and beverages 3. location
An excellent location with very friendly staff and comfortable accomodation. The free bar and snacks in the lounge area made it a very sociable hotel too. Nothing it was excellent all round.
It was central, comfortable, had a very nice breakfast and it's inclusive concept was brilliant.
Staff were fantastic. The food/drink concept is very welcome and helpful in such an expensive city. Good showers. I would agree with some comments that the rooms are a bit plain. If the rooms had the detail and decor of the reception areas it would be excellent.
Central location within the city center. Hotel staff very friendly and efficient. Good breakfast. Good idea to have free access to coffee machine, drinks and snacks. However, for alcoholic beverages, we would have liked to have the option of paying for premium/better quality drinks. The room was very small and the "canal view" is of no real interest. No restaurant in the hotel so the choice for room service menu is very poor.
