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

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

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
