Margarita Kostina thinks…

"Perfect location close to Rijksmuseum, not noisy at all, clean bedsheets. Breakfast is quite ok too. Check-out on Sunday is also possible, although the website of the hotel says it's not!"

Liked: The beds were comfortable.

Disliked: We arrived before check in and they told us we could wait outside with our luggage until check in. They wouldn't allow us to enter the building if we wanted to wait inside we had to pay ten euros for each piece of luggage. The man who works there in unbelievably rude, however the young girl is very helpful and sweet. The breakfast was gross and they shut it down 40 minutes before it was suppose to end. My advice: don't stay here unless you don't care about customer service. I felt like an inconvience to them.
