This place really does not live up to the website. The rooms tend to be undersized, even by European standards, and the stairs endless... being a mountain goat would be beneficial. Bathrooms are NOT all on the floor of your room and, in fact, may be a full floor and a half removed ...and tiny to boot. The breakfasts are... More

Shower room & toilet on a lower floor to the room Slightly noisy due to thin walls Breakfast very dissappointing expected to find and rumage around finding crockery and... More

We had a mixed experience at this hotel. We stayed three places in Europe and ironically this was the most expensive room and yet our least favorite. Good things - bathroom is WONDERFUL and modern. Hosts are friendly and helpful. They restock your refrigerator with beverages at reasonable rates. Internet cafe was convenient although available only 1300-2400. Negatives were having... More

I have stayed at the Amistad twice more since I wrote my last comment. Once in Jan and once at the end of Feb. The staff continued to provide excellent information and help with every aspect of my stay. I understand they now have a fully furnished penthouse apartment available ... I must check that out the next time I... More

A friend and I stayed over the New Year for 12 days. The location is perfect! You are close to lots of gay bars, museums, tram and all. It's not on a canal which is what I really wanted (but my friend got the room). The room was expensive due to the high season over New Years, although I did... More
