Spacious, modern bedrooms with kitchenettes in the heart of the city.

The 42 rooms of Le Coin are spread through seven old buildings on a side street just off the Muntplein. As they are generally a good size and they all have a kitchenette - features that are rare in hotels in central Amsterdam - they are popular with businesspeople and families.

Location

Slap bang in the centre, just round the corner from a canal basin. Pretty much the whole city is in walking distance from here: in one direction lies the university neighbourhood, while the flower market is a two-minute stroll away.

Bedrooms

These are plain and modern, with boarded floors, leather armchairs (and a sofa in larger rooms), glass-topped tables, and white-tiled bathrooms. Up in the attic are split-level family rooms. Kitchenettes have an electric hob, sink, fridge and coffee-making machine, and plates, cups and cutlery are automatically provided - but if you want to do any proper cooking, you'll need to ask for pots and pans. There are several supermarkets close by to stock up on essentials.

Public areas

The breakfast room, with bare-wood tables and flooring, and the sitting room, are a bit nondescript, but ok.

Eating and drinking

A buffet breakfast is on offer. However, given that it costs an extra 11.5 euros a head and you could have a DIY breakfast in your room, you may think it's not worth it. Also, there are many places for coffee and a croissant nearby - including the Jaren, one of the city's best "grand" cafés, just across the street from Le Coin.

Service

Fine, but nothing out of the ordinary.
