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.

I paid 100€ a night during easter and I really regret it. I didn't like the hotel at all. It was old, smelly, the breakfast was a joke, the bathrooms were really bad, the tv in the room is for dwarfs and it was extremely hot inside. We had to climb up some difficult steps without the help of the... More

Our stay at Hortus was ok. For the price you can't really expect much more. Not a romantic destination but when you're off exploring the city you don't want to spend loads of money on a hotel. I'd recommend this hotel for friends, and couples who don't want a romantic weekend away. Other than that, it puts a roof over... More

nice room. clean and warm but the toilet is too small. towel should be provided but it wasn't. quite far to walk to city center but near to a tram station. so, shouldn't be a problem. the breakfast is great though.

Hotel Hortus. Where do I start? I guess your opinion may differ depending on the reason for your visit to Amsterdam. It's a sort of cross between a hostel and a hotel. Visiting Amsterdam for a romantic weekend? Not the right hotel. Visiting with friends for a stag weekend? Perfect!! That being said, rooms are clean and secure, room safe... More

I was there for one night. Good hotel for its price. Very good location and nice view to the botanic garden (if you are lucky with the room). Good place to stay a few nights if you just need to spend the night without fancy features.

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.
