Got the attic floor, my arms were hitting the roof while sleeping on the bed. I have seen two small bugs on the ceiling. The price seems to be ok for amsterdam (which is expensive) but do not expect too much from the hotel. There is only a sink and a gardrobe in the room; guests share a mutual bathroom,... More

The rooms and facilities were spotless, really clean and tidy, the beds comfortable and warm. The stairs are steep but you can do much about that it's a tall slim building! The member of staff that greeted us (a lady) couldn't be more helpful, she was jolly and was pleased to have us stay there. The same can't be said... More

I arrived late around 11pm and was greeted by a member of staff by the reception. He told me all the useful things I'd need to know about the hotel and then gave me my key. We told each other our names and shook handed. To get to my room I had to climb two flights of the steepest stairs... More

Pros- bed was very comfy. We lucked out with a private shower but had shared w.c. No big deal. fresh towels. Good WiFi. Average- location. Within walking distance of the action. Not directly in it. Cons- luckily I had a good last night's rest or would have been a one star. Got booked with the rugby team. They had the... More

First, this is a hostel not a hotel. Pro - location is quiet yet close to the centre Cons - room and bed didn't feel clean and tiny shared bathroom smelled terrible of urine - advertises free towels, however we didn't get any - one of the staff members was very rude, the other two were fine but not overly...

Seventeen lads stayed at this hotel for two nights and were really impressed. For the price you pay you really cannot complain. Not too far from the centre. Showers in rooms. Decent breakfast. The staff were polite enough. Checkout at 10am but we could leave our bags at the hotel until it was time to head to the airport.

I stayed 3 nights in this "hotel" during Easter and I was quite disappointed for a few reasons. First, the hotel is far away from the city main attractions and the area is a bit dodgy. There is a tram station very close to the hotel, but if you are planning to walk the city I would definitely not recommend... More

Stay at a hostel for better cleanliness and service. Dirty bathrooms and common area. Child sized toilets and old cereal for "breakfast". Looked like the older man who worked there also lived in the hotel, very uncomfortable! Noisy, smelly place. Rude staff. Learn from my mistake

Very good place to stay for a couple of days, friendly staff, the breakfast is good and complete, the room was good with a view to a botanic garden, the only complaint is that the share toilette was to small, but beside that every thing was really good, location, friendly staff, clean and warm rooms.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
