I did not have a great experience here. The room was very small, not clean and not very soundproof ie- very noisy and I had problems sleeping. It was also quite pricy, at least when I was there. The most disturbing thing though was the guy working in the reception who asked me why I hadn’t mentioned I was alone,... More

This hotel is without doubt the worst, I have ever stayed at. The room was about 4 (!) sqm, very hot and with a window facing the ventilation system. The so called double room had a 1.2 m. bed. There was a lot of noice, also from the reception area. It was a room which could only be used to... More

Me and my mate stayed in this hotel for 4 nights for a drinking holiday... The stairs to get to the rooms are steep to say the least, but once you have reached the summit of the stairs you are met by adequate rooms, these rooms are small in size but do the job. The staff at the hotel are... More

I think the first thing people should think about when in Amsterdam is that you really are not looking for a great hotel to stay in since there is so much to do day and night in the city. Unless you want to spend a lot of money on that hotel... This place is kind of in the middle, it's... More

This hotel boasts very clean rooms which was initially my main concern. The en-suite was also very nice and clean and came with a powerful shower. The staff are also very friendly and are always willing to assist. The location could also not really be improved. Well worth the money.

We booked here as a last resort as everywhere else in amsterdam was booked out. I was already feeling like it was overpriced before we got there. We booked a double room for three nights with a shared bathroom it was €130 a night. When we arrived the room was so tiny we had to stack our carry on sized... More
