I enjoyed my stay at the King Hotel. It was actually better than I thought it would be, I would have given this a 3 star instead of their 2 star ranking. The rooms were quite spacious and we had a direct view of one of the canals, I would totally recommend asking for a room with this view when... More

This is not the king hotel according to the staff who run it. I have received an apology and compensation from the booking agency for their part in the misrepresentation of this hotel's services. I have also lodged a complaint with the Independent complaints commission as well as the Netherlands chamber of commerce. I would strongly recommend booking elsewhere for... More

This is not a luxury hotel, with small rooms, VERY steep stairs, and narrow hallways. That said, it is a serviceable basic place which is more than worth the money for the location alone. It's right off the Leidesplein, and minutes away from many of the sights you'd want to see in the city. Cleanliness was fine, though my room... More

I booked a twin room at the Quentin hotel based on the photos of the hotel and facilities offered. I did think the rooms in the photos were a bit small and basic, but for the price, in the middle of Amsterdam, it looked ok. When we arrived the staff seemed disinterested and slightly annoyed .. with everybody. This is... More

My boyfriend and I booked into the King Hotel for a week in February 2014 and were not disappointed! We are 21 and 24 years old and just wanted something clean, cheap and central which is exactly what we got. The rooms had everything you needed, private bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, comfy beds, wardrobe space and we were... More

The hotel is good, a friendly staff and good value for money when som centra. But the beds were too small! I guess it would be ok for a couple, but for two friends it just is too "intimate". The room was spacious enough to put in a somewhat bigger bed.

Booked this hotel as part of a KLM flight hotel special offer. Was worried about prior stories here of building work which seem to be largely complete and were no disturbance (stayed 4 nights starting Wednesday). My single room was small and would have been jammed if a 2nd single bed was present (but it was not) Room clean, bed... More

Room was a comfortable size, very clean and shower was great(even had dispensable shower gel/shampoo/conditioner inside the shower!) Although there was some building work going on downstairs, our room was on the 4th floor so it wasn't too much of a problem for us, however I do think the hotel owners should of warned all their guests in advance.

I don't think this hotel is worthy of three stars, two at best, the rooms are very small and basic. Very annoyed to find we are sharing the place with a set of smelly builders. The smell of stale sweat fills the hotel and not in a pleasant way either. They are banging and crashing all day and as late... More

Small but clean room, continental breakfast at Quentin Hotel next door, great position near Leidseplein, easy to reach with public transport. Good place/position to start exploring the city. Friendly staff, helped us to print boarding passes and baggage storage.
