My fiance booked this hotel for my birthday via Booking.com. It was a long way from Centraal Station and it was nothing like the hotel which they had advertised. We arrived to a grotty reception area, and were spoken to very rudely by a male Chinese receptionist. The room was in the basement, and it was absolutely tiny. So small... More

I agree with everything said by the other reviewers here. This was a cheap option but we definitely got what we paid for (if not worse). Our first room was dreadful, on the ground floor and facing the road. The sound of the pedestrian crossing, cars, bikes, people and the soft beds ensured that we had a terrible night's sleep....

Pretty run down place, our room was on the bottom floor there was no space to even walk as you open the door the bed is just at your feet. Room faced a tiny window towards the street which constantly had people sitting in front of and talking even at night so sleeping was hard. The breakfast was stale food... More

If you don't mind the sound of traffic, and feeling every car,bike, truck, tram go past the room window and shaking the room, beeping of horns and just generally too loud; for a window that won't close then this is the hotel for you. The bedroom was awful, the walls were all mucky and had lots of holes and wallpaper... More

This is unquestionably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.Yes,it's fairly cheap;but not excusably so.I don't mind staying in small bedrooms;but not smelly(the Toilet/shower room ),scruffy(peeling wallpaper)and potentially dangerous (the large broken shard of glass on the one mirror.)The hotel's only favourable commendation would be its position - but this,of course,is not something the staff/management can be given any...

Absolutely terrible. Room in basement, damp beds, mold in bathroom, bugs in rooms. Mold on curtains. Common areas absolutely disgusting also. Washed everything from my shoes to my toiletry bag as soon as I got home. For the price you pay, you could stay at a much nicer hostel, that isn't as far of a walk from the city's center.... More

We booked this place with a group of friends and I can't say that I would recommend it to anyone. The only good thing about this hotel is the very good location right by the Heineken brewery. Otherwise, I can confirm everything from the other reviews: small rooms, mold in the bathrooms, smelly rooms, et cetera. Do yourself a favor... More

We only have ourselves to blame but I do wish we read the comments before we booked this hotel. Colossal Nightmare – comes to mind when we walked into this hotel. Originally we booked with their sister hotel (Hotel Paganini) but upon check-in we were thrown into a room at this hotel – right next to reception (Room 001). The... More
