If you have booked a non-refundable rate, payment is required immediately, in which case the hotel requires payment to be made by credit card. In exceptional cases, bank transfers may also be accepted. We also accept bank cards. No cash payments are possible.
When booking, you will receive a pre-registration e-mail requesting you to fill in your details, including your credit card details.
If a payment or pre-authorization is made by a third party during the reservation process and/or the name of the credit card holder is different from the name of the booker and/or guests, the hotel will probably ask for a scanned copy of the card holder's ID and a signed letter of authorization from the card holder giving his/her agreement to the use of the credit card for the reservation.
If a third party wishes to pay for the reservation on arrival, this is not a problem.
Tourist tax is a municipal tax for paid accommodation in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam city council requires each tourist to pay 7% of the total room price + EUR 3 per person, per night tourist tax for accommodation to improve the city and its facilities. More information can be found at: www.amsterdam.nl/nl/community-taxes/tourist-tax.

We do not have a private parking garage. However, there are two car parks where you can park at a discount through us: Q-Park Nieuwendijk at 2 minutes walking distance and Q-Park Amsterdam Central at 7 minutes walking distance.
There are two options. You can reserve a parking spot online via our special link, where you will be asked to enter your license plate number. This allows you to drive in and out during your stay. You have not received the link yet? Then please send us an e-mail. We will gladly send you the link.
You could also park your car as you normally would. When checking out, you can buy the discount tickets at the reception desk.
Q-Park Nieuwendijk at 2 minutes walking distance costs €44,00 at the reception and €32,50 online via our link. Q-Park Amsterdam Centraal is 7 minutes walking distance and costs €30,00 at the reception desk and €27,50 via our link.
Unfortunately we do not offer a shuttle service. The quickest and easiest way is to take the train from Schiphol. The train runs every 15 minutes from 06:00 until midnight.
