Cheap. Good location if you've already stayed near to Dam Square s this is a bit further out. Nice to be canalside without expense of Prinsengracht (which is like two seconds away). It is what it is. The hotel seems to have its own bar and outside terrace area but it is not the hotel's - it is the bar... More

As soon as we opened the door to our hotel room at Hotel Agora we were overwhelmed with a horrifying smell! Coming from the bathroom sink drain was a stench I can only describe as "rotting corpse". Upon notifying the front desk, they sprayed the room with air freshener and said the cleaning crew would clean it really well in... More

Stayed here last weekend with friends. The location is spot on! The welcome was amazing. Young lady very helpful and accommodating. Allowed us check in 2 hours early. Wifi in the hotel went all the way to the rooms which was a nice touch. And she told us breakfast was provided which we didn't know. This is where the positives... More

Definitely come here if you want to be central, but like most hotels in Amsterdam be prepared to hike up very steep stairs to your room. Everything seemed OK until I saw the bathroom! The sink literally had a third of it missing underneath with cracks radiating throughout the whole basin! Something catastrophic had happened to break it leaving fractured... More

I was a little worried after seeing the negative reviews on here, but i shouldn't have been. i booked this hotel through a booking.com sale for half price, (£170 for 3 nights) for my boyfriend's birthday trip to Amsterdam. We stayed in room 28, a double ensuite. First of all, if you want luxurious decor, this isn't the hotel for... More

Me and my family stayed in this hotel for 3 days. Great location walking distances to Ann Franks house, Dam Square and the markets. The room was small and old the breakfast was nothing to be happy about. The only thing I could say that was great about this room was the people were extremely nice and the bed so... More

This was the worst service I have ever experienced! We booked for 5 beds and they only made up 4. Here was a sofa bed which we had to pull out and then when we asked if the bed could be made we were told by the manager that he didn't know how to make a bed. We said we... More

I've been to Amsterdam 7 times in the past and this is the best hotel I have stayed in. It's basic but the price reflects this. You don't go on holiday to stay in the hotel so everything we needed was there. Breakfast was great, and we informed the staff that we were vegan and they went out to get... More

Great location for the hotel near the centre. You can hire bikes from the hotel as well which is very useful. However the wifi is good but doesn't reach the top floor. Breakfast is simple but decent as are the rooms which can get a bit hot as they only have one fan.

Where to start.. Location wise it was perfect! Just off the first Amsterdam Canal. And far enough away from all the youts getting high for the first time. Receptionist was a weed connoisseur and knew the best places to smoke round town. Even told us where Oceans 11 was filmed. Stairs.. Bit too steep for our liking. But that's probably... More
