The mid-range Hotel Espresso is situated just outside of Amsterdam's canal district and within walking distance of several top sights. Its 68 rooms are fairly basic and small, but clean and pleasantly outfitted in the namesake coffee hues, with lovely, modern bathrooms. Though the hotel's amenities are limited to free Wi-Fi and breakfast that is available at an additional fee, the sunlit lobby is full of seating and overlooks the busy Overtoom street, with free coffee and tea available all day. The convenient location that's surrounded by restaurants and shops and is well-serviced by several tram lines is a big draw for tourists, though for a hotel that offers a bit more, travelers might want to consider the nearby Hotel Vondel, which is more stylish and has a restaurant.
True to its name, the Hotel Espresso features contemporary interiors cloaked in coffee hues, which though a bit bland, are pleasant and clean. The large lobby has floor-to-ceiling windows which fill the space up with lots of natural light and there's plenty of seating to lounge and view the busy street outside. The open-plan layout also includes the adjoining breakfast room, where a large photograph of a steaming cup of coffee adorns the wall. Free coffee and tea throughout the day are a thoughtful touch.
Convenient location within walking distance of several sights and well-serviced by public transportation
The hotel is situated on the busy Overtoom street and surrounded by several restaurants, bars, and shops. The convenient location is a short walk from several top sights, including Leidseplein and the scenic Vondelpark, both six minutes away, as well as the Museum Quarter, which can be reached in about 10 minutes. Several different tram lines stop right by the hotel and Centraal Station can be easily reached in 15 minutes via the No. 1 tram line. There is a direct bus from Leidseplein square directly to the airport (45 minutes total travel time).
Small, clean rooms are fairly basic with standard amenities and modern bathrooms
Rooms at the hotel include doubles, triples, and quadruple rooms, and are fairly small and simple, though clean and pleasant. Brown patterned wallpaper, recessed lighting, and dark wooden furniture, including built-in headboards, all contribute to a modern air. Bathrooms have attractive dark tiling and walk-in showers with new fittings and low lighting. All rooms have wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, tea- and coffee-making facilities, small work desks, digital safes, and free Wi-Fi.
Lobby with free tea and coffee and continental breakfast available with an added fee, plus free Wi-Fi throughout
A large lobby lounge area has plenty of window-side seating and free tea and coffee that is available throughout the day. The reception is open 24-hours and includes luggage storage. There is a breakfast area adjoining the lobby where a continental breakfast buffet is served daily, though with an added fee. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
