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

Its situated in a good location but the room is way too small for 6 person and there are no elevators! so if you do have big luggages, please do not consider this hotel as your option. Otherwise you have to carry all the way up.

I recently traveled to Amsterdam on a budget trip and stayed at the Continental Hotel on Damrak. It is very conveniently located at a walking distance of 400metres from the Amsterdam Centraal and almost 600-700 metres from Dam Square and there is a big visible signboard posted along Damrak to fixate the location. It is very closed to some excellent... More

We had a great view of the street from our window! It was a cool room in a great location. Really close to Centraal Station. The hotel wasn't super clean, but the staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay there again!

Stayed there for two nights. Cannot fault it. Great location for train station and all the attractions. What i must say that the staff were to a man absolutely first class. The hotel is clean and tidy and is basically great value. It is somewhere to keep your bags and sleep. This place ticks all the boxes for that and... More
