I stayed in hotel Damrak with my boyfriend and we had a wonderful time. Our room was cosy, with big beautiful windows that opened out onto the street. The location was ideal, a 5 minute walk from bars, restaurants, the Red light district and public transport. Overall a great stay.

Was dreading our stay here after seeing the reviews - but it seems to have been vastly improved from old ratings. The general areas of hotel need a good clean but the rooms are decent in themselves and the bedding is okay too. Each room has a safe which is a bonus. Not bad really - not the Ritz but... More

We checked in and walked straight back out again, couldn't even face staying there. The room was dirty, there was a smell of urine and there were stains on the bed sheets and walls. There was rat traps under our beds. Please stay away!

Good Points: Location Bad Points: Incredibly noisy Dark & Dingy No Breakfast Narrow endless stairs, no lift Unwelcoming Over priced Cramped Did I mention it was noisy? All the rooms and stairs have wooden floors. People were coming and going all night and each time it was like a herd of wildebeest in tap shoes stampeding through the room. Unbelievable!

This hotel is a perfect place for rottens and nothing else. STAY... More

We booked last August for this trip & at no point since did we get any correspondence to say the hotel had closed. Imagine our shock when we arrived to be confronted by a building up for sale & nothing more than a shell!!! My advice, if you've made the same mistake as us, (it's still on the internet as... More

We stayed in a room for 8 (room 21) and the smell of urine from the bathroom was unbearable. Good location which came in handy considering we couldn't bear to be in the room for longer than 10 minutes without wanting to heave! Pricey too considering its a dump.
