Stayed here for one night after cruising over from Newcastle for one night to spend a day and a half in Amsterdam before cruising back. This was my second time staying in Amsterdam, the first time staying at the Amstel Botel and found this experience far superior. Really wasn't expecting anything spectacular but the rooms were clean which is all... More

This small hotel has a narrow entrance squeezed in between a pizza place and a Wok to Go take-away with rooms on 5 floors, via steep narrow steps. The hotel is Dutch-Finnish owned with mostly staff from Finland and with Finnish magazines in the reception area. Room info is in English, Dutch and Finnish. The staff are VERY friendly. I... More

The location of this hotel is superb for bars, shops, restaurants, trams. We paid for and expected a budget hotel and were pleasantly surprised that it was far nicer than we had anticipated. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Our allocated room was on a different floor from our teenage children and the receptionist immediately said it wasn't a problem... More

We have just returned from a 1 night stay here and found the hotel to be a great overnight stay. The rooms are basic but clean, the location is perfect just off Dam square. The only down side to this hotel are the stairs up to the rooms very steep and no lift..... we stayed on the 4th floor it... More

As others have said, the ventilation is terrible -- I found it too warm to sleep. The beds are soft and unsupportive. It's a walk-up -- prepare to climb as many as five stories of steps. I decided during the first night of a five night stay that I wanted to find another hotel, but because I told them after... More

The rooms are simply furnished but very clean & very comfortable & the staff were pleasant & obliging. We were able to check in straight away & on departure leave our luggage until it was time to meet our coach. Unless you want luxurious surroundings or an all-inclusive holiday I don't think you can beat this hotel as a base... More

We asked for a front facing room which had fab views of dam straat. We plan to visit Amsterdam each year and will definetly be returning... More

I mistakenly relied upon the tripadvisor reviews about this well located hotel. What a mistake as their rooms desperately need major maintenance/decoration work and a very good clean. Avoid this place as there are many better value for money options in the area.

This is a simple hotel with basic facilities. The atmosphere is laid back and the staff will always be available to help. Located just off the dam square with the red light district within minutes walking distance. I would stay here again without hesitation.
