I am unsure where to start. This was easily my most disappointing hotel experience in the last 10 years. On arrival we were greeted by a disinterested member of staff who checked us in to room 103 in the basement. This room had no windows and the only natural light was from a small hatch door that opened up to... More

I will start with the good point, the location is great with easy access to many places. There is a tram stop within 2mins walk. Now on to the bad ones, the service was very bad, The girl behind the desk was very rude. We got blamed and charged for a door fault that was just down to their system... More

Only spent a single weekday night here, and that was more than enough for me. I had a tiny pokey little room on the 4th floor above the street. It was noisy at night and I had a very disrupted sleep, the room was too stuffy and hot to close the window, and also the lack of A/C. The bedding... More

Booked this through another site, turned up, breakfast no longer included, no longer a bargain. Not sure who was at fault. Very Dutch place - staff with a great sense of humour and all appeared to be off a film set. And actually completely unhelpful. Owner, who did not fit my description of the other staff, having a very unpleasant... More

I wish I had read the TripAdvisor reviews before booking at the Acostar. We shared the same experiences as many, many other people. Ridiculously tiny rooms, hot water not working or, at best, tepid, wifi out of order. The rooms had not been vacuumed effectively. Worse still, the owner (who is not Dutch) ridiculed my complaints and then made screamed... More

The rooms were ridiculously tiny, we couldn't open the bathroom door properly because the bed was in the way. The bathroom was dirty, there was other peoples hair everywhere. The walls were paper thin, I woke up hearing the couple in the room next to us having sex. This place was disappointing and gross

The location is amazing, near to Leidsplain, Anne Frank's house, Van Gogh museum, Amstel river and good restaurants and stores. The hotel has a basic style but is very clean, the rooms are good with a very good shower! The breakfast is good but the stairs are uncomfortable. The staff is very polite and helpful. It´s possible to rente a... More
