we upgraded to stay in hotel rather than the hostel, rooms nice and spacious, was rather worried by previous reviews, but we did not experience any insect bites. staff very helpful, luggage storage was offered, because we arrive hours before book-in time. given a map and clear instruction how to reach the city centre. approx 25 Min tram ride to...

I was worried to book because of negative feed back responses, however, my family experience was so good. Pros: -very big room, newly refurbished. -Clean room. -friendly staff. -two elevators. -very large parking. -good price. Cons: -smoking smell so strong. -neighbourhood is not good. -very early checkout. Generally we have enjoyed our stay and will recommend the hotel. -

The room generally had a damp smell and every morning I would wake up with fresh bites. More and more everyday. The service was good and the 24hr food is very helpful. It would have been ideal for price and location if it wasnt for the bites.

This is definitely not a 3 star hotel, unless the Netherlands have a different star rating to the rest of the world? The pictures definitely don't look like today's hotel, The room was basic and suitable for one nights stay, but smelled of damp, through the night we all started itching and found we were covered in bites in the...

I have been using the West Side Inn for a number of years as a budget business hotel....on my last visit it would appear that the hotel has been discovered as a cheap student place to crash between parties. Standards are defiantly dropping below my acceptable budget standards and I won't be back! Wi-fi is totally useless...always was always dropping... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights with my friends when I stayed in Amsterdam. In terms of cost it wasn't too cheap but was one of the cheapest we found within a reasonable distance of Central Amsterdam. Our room was modern, clean and comfortable. The only problem was we were on the ground floor of an internal courtyard... More

Lovely staff, cafe food is excellent but room could be better, eg hair dryer, shower could be more powerful, no window in room. However, it is value for money seeing as we booked at short notice. Nice outside area to relax in.

On a whole I'd say this is an average hotel for slightly above average cost for what you get. There is an element of hostel about it with the vending machine giving tooth brushes and the rooms having very little facilities but it's reasonably comfortable and the staff are mostly quite helpful. Pros The beds are comfortable and large (we... More

The professional photos show on their website do not represent what was actually received upon our arrival (Middle of July 2014). The photos show clean and newer looking rooms. Upon arrival we were a few hours early so we waited downstairs in the lobby, which is nothing special but at this point we were fine with it. Once we received... More
