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

The hotel is located directly in Red Light Disctrict. So around are all the coffeshops, bars, etc. So the busy and "living" area. Anco Hotel is a gay hotel, but hetero guests are welcome as well. We had studio room with own bathroom. The other rooms are sharing bathroom on the corridor. Our room was very nice and clean. The... More

Stayed five nights in this hotel that is centrally located in Amsterdam, within walking distance to Central Station and many of the key sights. The room was clean as were the shared bathroom and shower. The continental breakfast was quite good. Yes, it is noisy, but that obviously is a function of the hotel's location and not an issue with... More

The location is perfect. you are set right in the middle of the city so getting around is easy. The room i stayed in had a view of the canal but necessarily did not come as a joyous experience because of all the noises but still at least they had a view. Price is affordable and the rooms are nice.... More

Cons: Shared bathroom, can get noisy (but hey its Amsterdam), room was a little dusty but for the most part pretty clean. This place was the first stop on our 8 week Euro-Trip.
