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

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

Most of the time cheap hotels can be unclean, uninviting,dark and dingy, but Hotel Hortus, wasn't like that at all. Comfy beds, good showers, good breakfast, nice helpful staff & close to dam central..

Me and my boyfriend stayed at hortus for two nights the end of April for a cheap short break. After finding the place (which we found slightly difficult as no significant sign saying 'hortus hotel') we were checked in immediately and given keys to our room on the 3rd floor. As were 18 and 19 the stairs were no issue... More

Firstly, the morning guy in the reception is so rude. I was asking how to operate the heater in the room, but he rudely replies in a difficult to understand English slang that the heater does not work if the temperature does not drop to a certain degree. And he will show u an impatient face if u ask again... More
