If you're looking for a good quality plush hotel in Amsterdam you're going to have to pay! Hotel 83 is very basic, in fact it's more like a hostel than a hotel. However, it's in a very central position in the red light district and it's clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast buffet is available as... More

Despite being in the heart of the red light district once you get into your room it is pretty quiet, no problems sleeping at all. Room is basic but is clean and has everything you need. it was the...

I stayed in this hotel last June for a week. Me and my boyfriend wanted a very central and cheap hotel. This one does it. The room is not fancy and the bathroom is a little weird, but its fine if your not very picky or looking for something trendy. Although its located in the center of the Red Light... More

If you don´t mind going up a really steep set of stairs to the hallway to your room and you want to be smack dab in the red light district, this is the place for you. It is also handy to all the other points of interest in the part of Amsterdam. Best was the price, easy 10 min. walk... More

Location is excellent if you want nightlife. Hotel is quite quiet, and well insulated, but you are in the heart of the red light district, and close to centraal station. Hotel stairs are very steep and there is no elevator so if you have very heavy luggage, or are not able to climb, I would avoid. Price is good for... More

Good location, It's in the centre of the red light district, easy to find. 5 minutes from the station, easy and quick walk to dam square and the main shopping street. Our room was clean and the shared bathroom was clean, fine for what we used it for. It reminded me of a bedsit. There are a lot of steep... More

Was a nice hotel to stay in, chosen as it has secure parking out the back. Is in a great location and has nice clean rooms. Only stayed for a couple of nights but the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone going who needs to securely park a car or motorbike.

After reading many of the reviews, I was expecting the worst for this hotel, but wasn't worried as we were only staying for one night. I was pleasantly surprised. We received a friendly welcome at the reception and shared a joke. The stairs are - as many other people point out - very steep, but that is quite common in... More

Hotel 83 is a fantastic place for a group of friends enjoying the city. It's minutes from the station, the beds are comfy when you want to get your head down and the rooms are safe. It's not the most glamorous hotel but if you are looking for that you'll be paying much much more. The staff are friendly and... More

As my first time travelling to Amsterdam I was a bit skeptical about where to stay and having to catch taxi's around so I booked this place and it turned to be everything I needed. It was smack bang in the red light district which was no where near as intimidating or scary as I had imagined it to be,... More
