My most recent stay at Hotel De Gerstekorrel was in May, although I have stayed here on my many trips to Holland for many years. The reasons are varied, important to me and they have not changed over the years: * Fantastic location -- the best possible in Amsterdam * Wonderful, helpful staff * Clean, comfortable rooms * Extremely reasonable...

Have stayed here several times. Best location, clean rooms, friendly reception. Good value for money! Sain myös suomenkielistä palvelua. If you can climb the stairs, choose a room on upper floor, maybe you get a view over the roofs.

The room was the smallest I have ever seen, stairs are also the worst. Booked a room for 3 days, checked out the second day went to the DoulbeTree for the same price. Worst Hotel I have ever seen. If you want a small cramped room and some exercise getting to it this is the place for you.

This hotel is right in the Center of Amsterdam with less than 5 mins walking distance from Dam square and less than 15mins from central station. Location is therefore perfect. The space restriction hits you at first, starting from the small reception area, the narrow, steep staircase and the room dimensions. The shower/toilet room was especially challenging to use. In...
