This was my second time in Amsterdam having previously stayed at Hotel CC (for €59 a night). This time that hotel was booked out, as was most of Amsterdam. We decided to go for this hotel because of the location and the cheapish price (€70 a night) despite being wary because of the reviews. First of all, the location is... More

This hotel was my last resort when I didn't book a hotel in advance on a weekend. I was lucky enough to get a room due to a last minute cancellation. The room was on the top floor with no elevator. The steps were very steep and carry a heavy bag was awful. I swear I thought I was going... More

I was charged 70 euros at reception, I looked online and the same room was 40 euros. When I brought this to the attention... More

After a booking problem in another hotel, we found a room for 4 people avaiable in Continental. The staff was very friendly and hepful with us. The room was tiny (like most in Amsterdam) and had two bunkbeds with lockers. It looked more like a hostel and cleaning was average. The bathroom was considerably better then the bedroom and was...

This hotel is walking distance to absolutely everything: Train station, Bar/Restaurant, Red light district, Anne Frank House, Dam Square ect. The Hotel itself was mediocre. The rooms are small (most hotel in Europe are) but my BF is 6.1ft tall and he was unable to really fit in the bathroom. I requested a private bathroom (private toilet and shower) in... More
