Having stayed here about 15 times in the past, it is with a very heavy heart that I write this review. Until last year, the hotel was an exclusive 'men only' gay hotel. Everyone staying there was gay which made it unique and gave great opportunities to meet like-minded guys. The hotel is now "gay friendly", claiming that 80% of... More

I stayed at the Anco hotel in October 2014 (I know i've fallen a little behind with posting my TripAdvisor reviews). Hotel is very centrally located in the city, in the red light district (but not on a main noisy street). It's a 5-10 minute walk from the main train station. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. I was offered... More

As always, made very welcome when I arrived and they greeted me personally before I announced myself which was nice. Hotel is very clean, comfortable and even though it was cold outside the room was lovely and warm. Bed was very comfortable. Be aware that like all places over here the stairs are very narrow and spiral, so it is... More

We stayed in September, great location beside the canal, and not far from central station. Very nice breakfast and when we arrived early in the day, we were offered tea while they rushed to get our room ready. Very kind and helpful hosts. It is beside the red light district, but that should not put anyone off. Comfortable beds and... More

We are so very blessed and lucky to have come across the Hotel Anco while looking for a hostel. I have never felt so welcome and accommodated plus the price was perfecto!! Our room was perfect, shower & bathroom very clean plus a wonderful breakfast. The guys here are my sweethearts! Thank you for making our stay memorable.

What is the most brilliant feature of this hotel? Yes - the hosts are! They perfectly manage this hotel in a warm and considerate way making guests welcome. Yes- the location is! Walking distance from the main railway station and in the middle of everything. Note: there is some red light business around which was not intimidating or disturbing at... More

Once again my partner and I stayed here for six nights. Our second stay. I have to say this is a great welcoming place to stay. If you want to be in the middle of the red light district it's location is superb. Shared facilities are kept clean and tidy. Rooms are serviced and the staff are very kind and... More

I have visited Amsterdam several times and good accomodation is difficult to find at avergae prices. This hotel keeps a good balance, for Amsterdam standards; located in an old property overlooking the Oudekerk, it has a great atmosphere, very gentle staff that look after your needs in all moments and a great location if you want to be right in...

From the minute I walked in until I left, the staff was amazing! The owners are an adorable older couple that love to have fun with each other. I didn't like my first night where I didn't have an apartment suite with a private bathroom because someone over flowed a toilet in the middle of the night and I stepped... More

Ended up at the Anco hotel after originally booking a hostel and not liking the look of it. The Anco was great for us as a gay couple. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They were knowledgable about the local area and able to recommend some great bars and places to eat. Would recommend. There were also a couple... More
