 "very nice"
clean, friendly and we could get an early check in, Very good breakfast. the location is close to the city. The rooms are pretty and new. It was very quiet at night, except in the morning . The cleaning personal woke us up because there is a wood floor in the hallway.

 "Nice hotel"
Used this hotel on our recent 3 day trip to Amsterdam. Hotel recently built so modern styled and in great condition with underground car parking, we were on motorcycles so safe parking a must albeit a pain in the backside getting in and out through the automated barrier and gates. The staff were very pleasant and helpful especially with the parking situation. Hotel situated just outside the main area's but only short tram ride or easy 15 minute stroll to Rijksmuseum or Heineken Experience and all the other main area's easy reached. We didn't eat in the hotel we wanted to take in the local cafe's for breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed or stay.

 "Much more potential"
The Hotel Downtown has the potential to be great hotel. The location is great, the rooms are very nice, and the surround cafés increase the value. However, the staff seem inexperienced and perhaps a little condescending. For example, I plugged in my phone charger, and for some reason the power went out. I took several minutes for the staff to figure out how to switch it back on, and I was told somewhat accusatorily not to use the plug again. Over all, it was an average stay that could have easily been great.

 "good value clean hotel"
Spent two nights here in August. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a fantastic walk in shower. Cosidering it was a deluxe double room, the room wasn't that big, so glad we didn't book a basic double. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was ok. If you don't mind walking it's not far to the Liedesplein, museum Square and the Anne Frank house or there are tram stops nearby, so it's easy to get around.

 "Good quality rooms but it depends of the room"
Service is courteous; the rooms and all facilities are very modern and clean. The location is as well good,in walking distance to the museums.The standard and junior rooms are all in the basement, this means that the view is limited. If you have a room going to the atrium it is very dark inside the room. The bedside lamp and the light in general in the room is to dark - you can't read a book with it.

 "Great hotel!"
Great hotel, brilliant value for money. Opened only 7 months a go & still looks immaculate. Rooms a little small but big enough for only 2, esp given that we only slept in them. Only down side is that the hotel was a bit further out than we expected but this was no big deal as you can jump on a tram at any time, and they come about every 10 mins so you never have to wait. Hotel in walking distance to Leidesplein - maybe 10 mins stroll. Would bother with hotel breakfast - cafe over the road served breakfast up to midday & it was half the price. Really couldn't fault the hotel, excellent service & value for money. Much nicer than staying in a run down hotel in the centre for twice the price! Highly recommended.

 "Lovely hotel"
Booked 2 penthouse rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were just like the pictures on the website. Lovely big terrace, only downside was they could have put some seating out there. Location was quite, a little far out from Dam square but a short tram ride away, however it can easily be walked. We took the tram as its very easy to use and an experience! Would recommend this hotel

 "Not called Grand Hotel Downtown but Hotel Downtown. Mislead me into reservation."
I stayed in what was suppose to be a large penthouse but turned out to be an average size room with no luxury features. The terrace had no furniture. Its actually called Hotel Downtown. Very misleading.

 "Nice roof terrace"
Junior penthouse was small but adequate, roof terrace was huge, shared with two others but didn't see them. Tram 1 from centraal station took 10 mins. Reasonably easy to find.Nice friendly reception staff, would stay here again.

 "Very comfortable and in a great location"
We really enjoyed staying here, room was as described and we enjoyed walking everywhere in Amsterdam! Very nice room and very comfortable bed. The TV hidden behind a mirror was a lovely touch as were the warm bathroom tiles underfoot!

 "A great stay and fantastic hotel"
A nice and newly renovated hotel. Everything was new and fresh and up to date.We stayed in a big room with a seperate living room area and a huge bathroom. The room had a modern design and looked very chic.The hotel is in a nice and quiet area just a few minutes walk from all the action and also a few minutes walk from the number 1 tram line. There are also a few nice restaurants just across the street. The only minor complain we have is that the staff is a bit forgetful. We asked for a couple of things to be fixed and they promised to come and fix it in half an hour, but both times they never showed up. This is just a minor irritation, but I still have to point it out as the only flaw.This is our new "go to hotel" when in Amsterdam and we recommend you to try it out.

 "Good stay,but need to allocate the correct room booked."
Stayed here for a 3 night break,and would advise that unless you enjoy walking,for example to Dam Square or Red Light area,then this hotel is not for you.We found the reception staff very welcoming,and we were given penthouse room 612.After entering the room I we realised that we had been given a junior suite,& not a large penthouse that we had booked,although the junior suites do have the outdoor terrace also.I spoke to reception.and she showed me the printed confirmation,which just said "penthouse" & she advised me that the pictures of the room shown on websites are not always what you are allocated on checking in.Errr sorry I don't think so !! , when the rate was at least 40 euros a night difference.I challenged this,because the photos of the large penthouse and junior penthouse are the same on several websites which I researched before I booked,so why would I not be allocated what I thought I had booked.We were then given room 601,which upon entering was clearly the correct room type.Other than this hiccup,we had a nice stay,the rooms are lovely and quiet,& although these are more apartments than a hotel (with several residents on the lower floors) we could not fault the hotel.The only reason we were put off really with the long distance to walk is the weather was very cold,however spring,summer & autumn would be a pleasant stroll,& then there is always the option of catching a tram,as there is a stop very close by.This hotel is however in a great location for the museum district.There are loads of places to eat locally,& a very good place just next door for breakfast,rather than paying the hotel rate.Would I book here again..?Certainly !!! Hotel downtown is very good value for money,
