This hotel is a lot more than what we expected before we arrived. As it is a "two star" I was not expecting very much at all, and having stayed in other two stars in Amsterdam previously, I would not have been surprised. This is actually a very nice hotel, it is clean, well located, reasonably priced for its very... More

Stayed in this hotel with a group of friends. Staff were very friendly and welcoming from arriving to leaving. Rooms are very basic but really good for the price. Bathroom was abit dated, but everything clean and i guess that's all that matter. Excellent location close to everything.

I would have stayed here last time I was in Amsterdam but it was booked and found another good alternative that I reviewed in another... More

I went with three friends and we stayed in a family room, there was more than enough room, it was clean and tidy, we were given fresh towels when we wanted and the bed were comfortable with enough pillows and blankets provided. The hotel staff were so friendly and welcoming and were happy to help us with anything we needed.... More

Hi This is a 2 star hotel in the center of Amsterdam, if you are young and traveling across Eu this might be a good idea but for anyone that cares about hygiene or comfort this would be a very bad experience. My room had a used tissue beneath the bed, hairs scattered in the shower, on the toilet and... More
