The area around the Botanical Gardens is beautiful. A short 5-10 minute walk to clubs that are open all night 7 days a week, and the streets around Hotel Hortus have a modern, youthful atmosphere. A hostel-esque sort of hotel, Pension Hortus has a great social area downstairs with somewhere to smoke and a pool table. The hotel offers a... More

Not many negatives from this stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the outset. Had a room on the bottom floor so no stairs to complain about! There was however a lot of people walking by the room to use the stairs which could be heard throughout the night. Room was basic but very nice. Toilets were very... More

First of all hotel should be called a hostel. The room is too small, no wardrobe and no window, it is very hot in summer. Unpleasant attendants. Very steep and narrow stairs.The noise of slamming doors were constant throughout the day and night.

We stayed here on a trip around Europe between 16th and 18th June 2014. It had a very hostel-like feel about it and we had a great time. The bathroom and bedroom were both clean, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was filling. We were able to come and go as we pleased and we felt as though we... More

Hotel Hortus is the ideal place for a stay in Amsterdam, all the staff here are very welcoming and informative and cannot do enough to help you. Breakfast is a bonus which not many other places include in the price, and is really good. We rented bikes from the hotel and the price was much cheaper than all of the... More

A friend and I recently returned from a 2 night stay at Hotel Hortus, we stayed in a private twin room on the ground floor and it was a lot more than I expected. The place was extremely clean and the beds were so comfy. Our room had a sink, tv, wardrobe and an electronic safe. Communal toilet and shower... More
