We have been coming to the ANCO for the last 25 years. We love the location close to the Red light district and bars. Ten minute walk from the train station. The rooms are basic but clean. We don't spend a lot of time in the room - just to sleep and off we go into the city. The breakfest... More

This hotel is in the perfect place - near the biggest shopping malls, near the lovely canals, near some of the nicest restaurants, near some of the best and warmest coffee places, and just a stone throw from the Red Light District if you're into it. Amenities aside, this hotel is pretty quiet, ideal if you're looking after a relaxing... More

This hotel is a fantastic little find. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book it again! I had booked the hotel as a surprise for my boyfriends 21st birthday and had also brought two of my boyfriends friends along. We had a little confusion with the rooms when arriving there as they thought we'd not booked but they... More

I have been using this hotel for the past six or seven years and it has moved from being a men only leather hotel to one where straight couples stay. The move seems to be in line with other gay hotels and even gay cinemas, partly through people being more accepting and partly for economic reasons. The hotel is very... More

The Anco was the bright light in what was a difficult start to the short but sweet city break. Ideally centred in the vibrant red light district, but not affected by the fact, nicely chic inside with cool decor and clean facilities, not to mention the very decent breakfast. However, more than anything, the staff there are just amazing... Helpful,... More

I stayed in the second floor suite overlooking the canal with kitchenette and private bath. Had a great view of the canal and the Old Church. The staff was amazing as they were full of information and gladly shared it. The owner went out of his way to insure I was looked after. The breakfast was good and a meeting... More

I am back after 13 years with my husband. I was delighted that the hotel has some remodeling but retains its charm. The hotel is placed centrally opposite the Oude Kerke (Old Church), not far from the Central Station. Yes, it is in the red light district but this impacts little. It can get a little noisy at weekends but... More

We really enjoyed this hotel in the red light district. Karl and Josef made us feel very much at home. Super friendly and welcoming. Our room had a lovely view of the canal and Old Church. The lobby and patio are fun places to hang out. The narrow stairs were fine for us, but beware if you have trouble navigating... More

I stayed with 2 friends at Anco Hotel for 3 nights, about a month ago. Carl, who owns the place welcomed us with a big smile and helped us with everything we needed. The room and shower were clean all along, the breakfast was good and the hotel is just a fun homey place to be at while we enjoyed... More

Great location and was a reasonable price when I last stayed there 2 years ago, but other than that I have to admit it is a bit dingy and dated looking inside. At that time were two older guys who were extremely nice and friendly who were the best thing about the guesthouse. Oh, and also a sarcastic and unhelpful... More
