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

Our room was small, but decorated nicely and looked clean. There was a safe in our room and a sink. We never went to breakfast but the kitchen was spacious and clean. Free wifi. The only negative I would say is that one member of staff was quite rude to us, just being very short with us and using a... More

I spent three nights here with my boyfriend. The hotel is in a good location, you can get tram 9 from Centraal station and get off at Artis zoo. Walk back one block, turn left and the hotel is there (takes roughly 10 mins). They give out free maps at the hotel so don't bother buying one from the tourist... More

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.

*****STAY 2006***** I stayed in this hotel in March, 2006. It was my first time leaving USA and this was the hotel we chose. We had no idea how to get there and just as luck had it someone who worked for the hotel was asking travelers in the subway station if they need a place to stay. We stayed... More
