I stayed here last year and I cannot believe I find myself giving this place 2 stars on my second visit. First of all the change in staff was a bad move for the Hortus. The man with the American accent was extremely rude and abrupt. I don't know who he thinks he is to speak to his "customers" like... More

Bed was the most comfortable. Receptionist was extremely helpful in pointing us in the right direction for night life. Breakfast was better than expected. Hot beverages were free. Would recommend Anne frank museum and Vincent Van Gogh museum.

The place was in a decent location. Quite close to a tram station and about 5 - 6 mins to a train station by tram. But I didnt really enjoy the stay here. The attitude of the staff was very cold and also rude sometimes. There was a lady amongst the staff members who was very nice and helpful, I... More

The Hotel Hortus was a great place to stay while we were in Amsterdam. The place was clean, beds comfortable, shower brilliant and the breakfast very nice. The one thing stopping me from a 5 star review is one of the employees. I am not sure of his name but he had short dark hair, side burns and glasses (thinking... More

Had a great stay here for two nights. Room was very clean and warm, beds super comfy! Shower was basic but we did not expect any more for the great price. Staff really helpful throughout, basic but tasty continental breakfast, coffee etc. Pool table is a nice addition. Location is great, around 20mins to all major attractions and in a... More

Really enjoyable stay at the Hortus, great location- central but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and had everything we needed! We have booked to go again in 2015. One of the cheapest deals we found in Amsterdam, great value!

I stayed at the Hostel/Hotel Hortus for one night in early December 2014. Overall, I thought it was pretty good. Very comfortable bed, clean room, great location. The breakfast was basic but comensurate with the cost of the room and was enough to keep me going. An easy walk into the very centre of Amsterdam and to everywhere else that... More

5 of us stayed in a 5 bed room, which was spotless with a private shower and great views from the massive windows! Very close to the Zoo if you're bothered about animals... Staff were really friendly, the guy that works there (cant remember his name) was helping us get our heads around certain shops... Would and most likely will... More
