This hotel is right smack dab in the center of Amsterdam. The view is right over the busy central area, looking over Central Station. It is right near great restaurants and walking distance from pretty much anything you need. The rooms are small and easy for sharing in groups with bunk beds. We had a shower in our room and...

We got free upgrade from double bed to triple beds for our two small children. The location is great and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. But the noise from streets could be quite annoying. Anyway it's a not too bad experience.

This is not a hotel for the ones who wants comfort. The rooms are super small, our door literally slammed into the wardrobe when we opened it. The staff was friendly but the rooms didn't feel that clean but then again the hotel is not for anyone who wants to enjoy a nice hotel. Though it's perfect for backpackers because... More

Cannot fault this place. Three of us stayed in a four person room. It was pricey for just three nights but this included the city tax and the location is superb, less than a 5 min walk either way to the train station or the main square. Friendly staff, clean rooms, shower in room, and a clean toilet just outside... More

We have just got back from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Continental in Amsterdam. 4 of us shared a room and it was great. We had a shower in the room with a toilet just outside in the corridor which was good as you are not waiting for someone to finish in the bathroom. As most people have... More

Cannot fault this hotel at all. I stayed here with three friends for a city break and we all left completely satisfied! Perfectly located on Damrak, one of the main thoroughfares in the city and 2 minutes from De Wallen, the city's main Red Light District, we arrived at 11am and were told we could check in from 1pm. The... More

Excellent location, perfect for what we needed. We were a group of seven lads on a stag do and needed a cheap room in a central location and the Continental fitted the bill. The rooms were regularly cleaned and staff were very helpful and friendly giving directions and organising taxis. Room was a little stuffy if the window was closed... More

LOCATION, location, location. Very clean, excellent friendly staff. Made an excellent cup of tea for free in reception. If you want somewhere clean, on a budget in the centre of Amsterdam, next to the Red Light, the famous coffeeshops and Dam square, then this is the place !!! Excellent for groups of friends !

Here's the story, I booked this hotel for a period of 5 nights on May. The booking conditions state that I have to pay the required amount (800$ approximately) upon arrival and the credit card is only required as a guarantee. 1 month prior to my arrival my credit card was charged with the amount of 167$. When I called... More
