"Near the station, a neoclassical 19C luxury hotel and extension dating from the 1980s."
"The proprietors' idea is to give guests a five-star hotel at four-star rates -- and a great location." Full review
"This tall, elegant building opposite Centraal Station has been one of the city’s best hotels for years."
"Set on a prominent corner with a distinct cupola, this is usually the first hotel people exiting Centraal Station lay their eyes on." Full review
Staffers are slow to respond to individual requests, and renovations are intermittent with rooms within the same category varying in standards.
"Rooms themselves are of a good size, and come with all the expected trappings. A big plus is the excellent health club and pool, both open to non-guests for a fee." Full review

"Where better to experience a city on the water than on a boat-hotel moored permanently to a dock on the IJ waterway northwest of Centraal Station?" Full review
Be sure to ask for a room with a view on the water, to avoid the uninspiring quay.
"Five minutes’ walk from Centraal Station, this floating hotel is usually populated by dazed, Europe-in-four-days bus groups and packs of Brit boys/girls celebrating bucks’/hens’ nights." Full review
"Convenient for Centraal Station, the docklands and hops across to Noord, this a good bet if you're looking for good, clean accommodation with the odd frill, like free in-house movies." Full review
"Kids may enjoy the experience of staying on a boat, but the property is more popular with value-minded couples and groups." Full review
Not For Tourists
"No worries about sea sickness, it's a very big boat."
