Had a fantastic stay here with the family. Perfect location right beside Dam Square which meant it was never hard to find our way back! The big front room on the 1st floor was great for the kids and we had the adjoining double room next door. Slept like a log despite being next to a very busy street as... More

We needed a hotel for three of us as a last minute deal. This was one of the only ones available. The room was big, however the bathroom was tiny; it was basically a wet room. It was in a great location just off Dam Square, and took us 10-15 minutes to walk there from the central station. Had a... More

Excellent location on a small street next to restaurants and take aways, small but very cosy and friendly staff. The stairs are very steep, and there is a luggage room to keep your cases in until you are ready to go home after checking out. We will be looking to book this hotel again next year.

I have stayed at the Gerstekorrel several times over the last few years. This is my hotel of choice when staying in Amsterdam as the staff are very friendly and helpful and it is located right next to Dam square. Like all hotels in Amsterdam, the rooms are not huge, but they are clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay here... More

This hotel is clean, inexpensive, and well-located. After arriving well into the late afternoon, we were stuck with a room on the top floor of the second building. It was only bothersome while trying to haul our luggage up the stairs when we first arrived. After that, we didn't mind the stairs. The best aspect of this hotel is its... More
