    The location is magnificent, the breakfast is also FRESHLY PREPARED. Beds in the room were comfortable. It's approx 10-15 minutes' walk from Rokin metro station, liked that, easily travelled around the city.

    In general, the hotel was spotlessly clean. An electric kettle and glassware where available in the kitchen. Really perfectly located property. It made our trip to Amsterdam a wonderful experience.

    I was checked intoa room that wasn't ready. Other than that, a nice central hotel.

    The location has to be the main feature of this Hotel. It is a 5 min stroll to Dam Square, but located on a lovely quiet street, so there is no noise etc once in your Hotel. And the beds were magnificent!

    Bathroom was very small, but again, this was only minor and myself and girlfriend still used it with no hassle.

    The hotel Citadel came up to expectations in every way. It was comfortable and clean and close to the Central Station. The breakfast was very good and my friend and myself enjoyed our stay there.. I

    The shower area was small and confined so we did not use it but this would not stop me from using The Citadel again.
