My partner and I just got back from Amsterdam and we can't stop reflecting on how wonderful The Backstage Hotel is. The staff were incredibly helpful, friendly, and remarkably cool. With live music downstairs very fitting with the musical theme of the hotel, this haven made for an incredible stay. The decor was cool, creative, and very rock'n roll. We... More

Stayed here on a break with my partner, not in the centre but just a short walk or bus away, found the staff to be very helpful and the hotel to be clean and tidy overall. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice relaxing time as well as those who want to party in the bar downstairs............

Just what I was looking for as a solo traveller - stayed in the single room at the front, breakfast was good, reasonable rates & good location. Near to the best music venues and trams, buses etc - coffeeshop round the corner. A little noisy from fellow guests in the early hours but hey. . .you're in Amsterdam!

This hotel is definitely what it promises - a very cool rock-style interior makes this place quite unique. Pros: - The breakfast is quite nice and well worth the 6.50 € - and serving times are flexible! - The rooms are clean, and creatively decorated, true to the rock-theme. - staff is friendly and very helpful - Amazing liquorice free...

I hit up the 1-room, which is tiny in a perfect way. A minimalist's dream. The entire vibe of this hotel is hardcore rock star magic, and is quintessentially Dutch, ie STEEP staircases. For 35 euros, the room was an epic find. I came for Skrillex. They had an internet-ready computer, which they let me use for free, to print... More

We had such a lovely time in Amsterdam. The staff at the hotel were incredibly generous and friendly. The room was comfortable, the shower hot, and the breakfast very delicious. There's a bar downstairs if you want to spend a night in, and the hotel is within walking distance to a cute little night-life and restaurant area, and a very... More

This place is basically great. The staff are really friendly and helpful, we arrived really early, but they found us an available room. Location is really good, not too far from anything, but not right near any late night clubs either. Only slight negatives were very steep and small stairs (not necessarily a problem for everyone but my boyfriend has... More

Stayed for 5 nights. First night was a disastrous start. Feral people next door were having a full on party with 4 outsiders from mid night till 2am, then they went out and came back at 4am to continue the party . The hotel night staff did what they could, they booted out the 4 outsiders and told them to... More

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. We were greeted by a very friendly chap that threw in a little something extra for his birthday which was a really lovely gesture to make, completely didn't expect it at all! I booked the private room and absolutely loved the recycled band kit they had used; snare drum for the light... More
