You have to know that accommodation in Amsterdam is quite expensive so this hotel is the best ratio between investment and what you get for your money. Breakfast is quite good. Tram line no.1 is in front of hotel and it's great connection with city centre. Mattresses are very comfortable and good for sleeping. Staff is very helpful with information.... More

I stayed for one week at Abba Hotel and I can say that it's one of the best hotels for young people and not only. If you plan a trip to Amsterdam and you want to spend most of your day out in the city, visiting and enjoying the sights, this hotel has a perfect location. Very easy to reach... More

Just a standard hotel. Very well priced and in a good location, with a supermarket right next door and a pizzaria opposite. Only about a 20-30 minute walk to the city centre and train station. The breakfast is pretty basic but free coffee and juice! Smoking in the rooms is allowed if requested, however a 10,000 euro fine if you... More

I booked this hotel after seeing good reviews and a decent budget price. We arrived in the reception area which is bright and nice (as in the photos) and thought we were on to a winner. As with everywhere in Amsterdam, there were a few flights of stairs to access the room. But when we were shown into the room,... More

Perfectly ok if you are using it as a base - near the centre, convenient for airport (metro to Laayland and then train to Schipol). The stairs are daunting but you get used to them. Supermarket downstairs and five minutes walk into older part of city.

I went here because of the good reviews from tripadvisor. The only quality of this hotel is its relatively good location. Our room stank of weed and it was not at all as clean as it is advertised on the website. I tried to refresh the rooms by leaving the windows open but it didn't do. The air in the... More

Pros: great location, reception is great and helpful, a decent breakfast Cons: shared bathroom, room reeked of tobacco smoke, TV not even worth turning on (not that big of a deal though), and quality of rooms clean but not quality, also not many outlets

Stayed here for four nights, travelling alone. The staff were friendly and helpful when checking in. The first night, the shared bathroom was dirty, urine on the seat, toilet unflushed, no toilet paper (the bathroom was shared between two rooms) but I had arrived about 10pm, was tired and just went to bed. If I had complained it probably would... More

Stayed here for the third time recently. Glad to see that nothing had changed. Staff friendly and helpful as always. Discovered what I should have done before, which is that it's easier to book directly through their website than do it via booking.com, who managed to leak my credit card details the last time I used them. Couldn't get a... More
