This is a quaint little hotel snugly fit right in the sweet spot of Amsterdam giving you a number of options logistically, The room was basic for the purpose and had all amenities expected of a Hotel of this calibre, The staff were polite and helpful especially with assisting in directions and any other inquiries that are otherwise overlooked by...

I paid 400€ for 3 nights in a double room in hotel agora. The location unarguably is superb, the rest of the hotel deserves not more than the two stars it holds. Rooms are really torn down and very basic. Breakfast too, staff is there to work the computer, but not to say hello or goodbye. Would prbly either get... More

We had booked the hotel online for 2 nights with a room that overlooked the canal..but due to online mishaps the room was double booked for a night. The gentleman who attended to us was very kind giving us another room which included a discount for the inconvenience. This hotel is situated in a great location but is not posh!... More

Decent enough hotel to use as a base, bed could be a lot comfier. Location is perfect walking distance to a lot of tourist spots. Wifi signal was great along with the breakfast (wide, fresh continental selection) and staff were excellent during our stay (Gerth & Bas I think). Ideal place to stay for a quick visit

From outside the hotel looks good and has a great location but we got a room, which was ice-cold, because the windows weren't isolated properly. We had no linens on our bed and no towels and there was dry blood on the duvet. Besides that, there were mould in both the bed lamps and the walls and just dirty in... More

My travel companion had stayed at this hotel in Amsterdam about 10 years ago and loved the location. At that time the rooms were simple but clean. It appears that nothing has been done to keep the hotel up in the past 10 years. The beds are uncomfortable, squeaky, and have springs poking through the mattress. The sheets and towels... More
