Great location but no frills hotel.

Pro's: Clean and warm. Comfortable beds. Quiet considering great location in city centre. Cons: No frills hotel. Rooms fairly basic. Foyer area very small so little seating. Continental breakfast decent but cooked abysmal-fatty, salty bacon and overcooked scrambled egg. Ideal if you want a base for exploring Amsterdam on a fairly low budget but no frills.

The best thing about my stay was...

Hotel location great for city centre.

Review of 'NOVA AMSTERDAM'

The location of this hotel is excellent - right in the heart of the city, just minutes from Dam Square and tons of amenities etc. The hotel was fine - friendly staff, the room was a good size and had a nice bathroom. The only downside was the lack of air-conditioning which meant a very warm room, although the staff had put a fan in the room to try and assist with this. The breakfast was fine and had a reasonable choice of things to eat and drink. Certainly would stay here myself again and I recommend this hotel to others.

Review of 'NOVA AMSTERDAM'

We stated at the Nova in Amsterdam for a long Valentine's weekend and found the Nova accommodation to be very clean, tidy and the staff where very helpful.<br /><br />I would recommend the Nova to all ages, as it’s very central to all the amenities, but not too central where you can’t get any sleep as you can.<br /><br />When we go back to Amsterdam I would defiantly stay at the Nova again.
