I stayed for one whole year here whilst working under contract nearby and the owner and his staff could not have done more to assist and serve me well from the very start. There was never once a time I felt overlooked or ignored. The building is smart and also kept very clean. Any problem was resolved quickly. When I... More

Clean rooms, friendly staff, Guitar Hero and pool in the open area (not to mention the bar...) and nice to children. My two thought the room was super cool, my aspiring actress (11 years old) loved the lighted mirror. We walked to the Anne Frank House and several parks and restaurants. The transport is very close, and even though it... More

Fantastic hotel with great customer service and a great location near Leidseplein. My wife and I stayed one night with three teenage boys (13-15 years old) and loved it. Got a quad on the third floor with built in Guitar Hero and DJ Hero. Room also had an IPOD docking station and flat screen plasma TV. Didn't plan on spending... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the Backstage Hotel and it was awesome!!!!! I will never stay anywhere else when in Amsterdam. We had a 4 person suite that was the envy of all our friends staying at other hotels in the area. It was HUGE compared to other rooms I have stayed in whilst traveling in... More

The staff here were really friendly and helpful. We managed to lock ourselves out of our room and they dealt with it straight away. On our second day the hot water in our room went off, it turned out to be a problem with the pressure in the street and without any fuss they opened up another room for us... More

There's little bad to say about this place. Every review talks about the nightmare stairs, but the amazing rooms and buffet breakfast definitely make up for it. The location is great as well. All I could say is that it's a bit expensive, and I don't know if I'd spend that kind of money again. If you're not on a... More
