Reception staff were absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, always willing to help you as much as they could. Room wasn't massively... More

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

The hotel is located right on Dam square which is the best place to stay in Amsterdam. We took a room for 4 persons (2 parents and 2 kids) which turned out to be big and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the linens and towels were clean and the free WIFI worked flawlessly. The staff was very friendly, helpful and... More

Stayed one night after overnight on DFDS ship. Part of a package, the hotel was clean and staff really, really friendly. We were in a building separate to the main hotel where reception is, but only a few feet away and the lovely receptionist walked us there after giving us maps and ideas for things to do. Stairs a bit... More

Myself and 7 girlfriends descended on Amsterdam for a long weekend - we had four twin rooms in this hotel. We weren't too sure what to expect, over Valentines weekend we felt we had got a great deal which can leave you wondering why... BUT this place was perfect for what we needed. The staff - they deserve full marks.... More
