The location is excellent, being just 300m from Leidseplein and it's nightlife. It felt overpriced though because there's no breakfast included and you have a shared bathroom. The free wifi was a nice perk, and the guy at the reception gave us an easier and cheaper way to get to the airport than taking the train, there's a bus that... More

We stayed one night at the Backstage Hotel, having chosen it on the basis of its location. It is located on Leidsegracht and so is within walking distance of the town centre. However as we were given a room in the basement of the building, the only windows in the room opened directly onto the street at ankle level, so... More

Good value good location the stairs are steep but this adds to the character of the place great do your own breakfast and the staff can't do enough for you, if there are four of it will pay to get a taxi. From the airport as the ticket system can be abit confusing

I bought tickets for me and my mom to a concert, so we decided to stay the night in Amsterdam and do some shopping the next day before heading home. The central location of this hotel and the positive reviews on tripadvisor convinced us to book this hotel. Well, the staff was quite nice and helpful. However, this is basically... More

I stayed in this hotel on 2 different nights last month. I love it. Many things in this city are tricky to find so do learn your directions first. Download the directions to your phone first. The rooms are designed to make you feel like a rock-star in a green room before a concert. That's how I felt. Both times... More

I stayed at the Backstage Hotel for 3 nights last weekend. I was really happy with the location of the hotel. It's very close to the museums, and only 20-minute walk to Dam Square, Anne Frank's House and everything you'd want to do whilst in Amsterdam. The hotel was a little tricky to find, because we got the bus from... More

This hotel was a disaster to find. The place was covered in net and scaffolding. I was convinced it was where I thought it was, but I could not see it at all, very frustrating, a sign on the street was 100% necessary. Google Maps was needed to actually show we were standing beside it. Hotel on entry was absolutely... More

Excellent value for money for Amsterdam. Friendly staff and a cool atmosphere in the bar downstairs. The bedrooms are uniquely and thoughtfully decorated. The location is excellent if you are into music and nightlife, and you have the top coffeeshops in town about 800 meters away. Only disappointments were: - painters looking through our curtains at 9.30 in the morning,... More

Stayed here with friends for a weekend away. The hotel is in a great location a minutes walk away from Leidseplein square, which is full of bars and restaurants and the hotel is also pretty close to the Museum Quarter if you are more into sight seeing. The staff where very friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean.... More

The hotel staff were easily the nicest people we met in Amsterdam. They made us feel comfortable the moment we arrived and offered to keep our bags safe before and after we checked in (and out). They serve breakfast until 11am which is a buffet style set-up consisting of toast, eggs, fruit, cereal and yogurt. It is great if you... More
