We stayed at the Hotel Agora with our three children in March. We were supposed to have adjacent rooms, but due to an "emergency" our rooms were two floors apart. We didn't feel comfortable with that, so my husband and I split up to be with the kids. We expected small rooms and lots of stairs, and that was fine.... More

Booked over the internet, paid 80 euros. Great location, staff super-friendly, room pretty good, breakfast fine. Its not the Ritz, but a great deal price-wise and a brilliant location.

We went to Amsterdam in Agora Hotel last june. It was the second time. We went once before a couple of years before. This time I was very disappointed to see that the general state of the room was very mediocre compared to the rate (more than 140 € per night) : dirty walls, carpet with holes, outdates interior decoration....

This hotel has nothing to reccomend it other than the location. Let's just say the bath featured a can of bug-spray and mildewed tile. Then there was the dirty carpet, the tired bedding, the youth hostel level of service. This was basically a diappointment all-round. Perhaps some of the rooms are nicer and more updated. Ours was a horror --... More

Hotel Agora is incredibly central, overlooking the Singel canal, which is definitely its biggest selling point. Our room was a bit tired-looking, although the bathroom had clearly been fairly recently replaced. As with any of the canal-side houses, the hotel is quite narrow and as a result the staircase is relatively steep and twisty - not ideal for anyone with... More

We have just returned from a long weekend in Amsterdam in the lovely hotel Agora! We really liked the hotel and its surroundings. We were surprised of the location; a lot of the famous museums are walking distance from the hotel and it is even situated on the Singel, one of the canals of Amsterdam. All the members of the...

This is an uncomfortable hotel that's cold, ugly, shabby and very, very tired. Rooms are small, basic and cold, and breakfast is toast in a bland poky room. On our lasty night here we came home at around 1 am to find our door lock was faulty and we couldn't get into our room so we reported it to the... More

My friends and I have just returned from a three day break in Amsterdam where we stayed at the Agora. Having read the reviews on this site I have to say we were all a little apprehensive about what we would find. Yes there was graffiti on the walls outside and yes there was a strange smell at the bottom... More

I was looking for a hotel next to the singel canal as I knew it would be central to just about everything. This was my 5th stay in Amsterdam and I knew what to expect of the old converted canal houses. Yes, the Agora is a little tired looking now, but the service was really good and the staff friendly....
