Unfortunately we had to stay in a small room on the bottom floor (which is partially below ground), and also right by the receptionist desk. With thin walls we could hear everything going on at the desk. The room though was still clean/nice. The drainage did begin to smell really funny, but I am not sure if that is just... More

I spent only one night in this hotel with three friends . Very old and small but very clean. Nice breaksfast. Very quiet. Not for children. A little difficult going up stairs with carry on since the stairs is so narrow. A 15' walk to bars and 30' to downtown. Good location..

Dear Sir/Madam, Thanks for your kind words! We're glad that you had a great time, and hope you can make it again one day. Our apologies to you and other guests regarding steep stairs. There are structural issues that we unfortunately could not change when converting this monument building into a hotel, the steep stairs indeed is one of them.... More

I spent 3 nights in Hotel Iris and enjoyed my stay.The room was nice,even though we were right next to the reception.The staff were very friendly and helpful.The hotel was out of the city centre yet easy to travel to via tram.I would certainly stay there again.

I was in Amsterdam for a 2 day event so wasn't going to be spending much time at the hotel. The building is old but my compact room was spotlessly clean and had everything I needed. I had breakfast at the hotel and it was delicious - there is a really pleasant, airy breakfast room and a lovely selection of... More

The room is dirty and old style as a cell. Carpet comes off the floor. The wall between two rooms is too thin seem the person in the next room is sleep on the same bed with you. cigarette burns and bad smell.

It's situated right across from Lidl which is perfect if you want to do some cheap shopping and keep food in your room. The room was quite... More
