Stayed here in September for a night with my sister, after reading other trip advisor reviews we became quite nervous about our stay however we did have any negative experiences. Our room was modern and clean and the hotel staff were lovely. The hotels outside the centre but accessing the city is really easy via public transport and the room... More

the room was extremely basic, undecorated and the regulation of heating/cooling was a full scale drama ending up in closing the entire cooling as it felt like a Polar wind....subsequently the heating took over and converted the room into a sauna....no plugin for a computer so we had to unplug the tv for that purpose.....it was not expensive but it...

Stayed here for a friends stag do and really enjoyed my stay. The room was small, but this was reflected in the price. Clean and well equipped for all our needs. The 24hr bar down stairs and pizza selling bit were amazing after a night on the town.

Hotel was about 15 mins from the airport, cost us €35. Staff were friendly and the hotel is decent as we weren't using it for anything other than sleep, shower and get ready. The beds were average, it's just basic. You get what you pay for and if you are after a cheap place to stay then book here. Maids... More

I stayed with a group of friends in two rooms and we found the hotel excellent and value for money. The hotel is located about twenty minutes by tram outside Amsterdam old town. Getting to the hotel was easy too. From Schiphol by train to Leylaand (one stop) 2.80 euros. Then got the number 62 bus 6 stops (2.80 euros)... More

I had the displeasure of staying in West Side Hotel in September. It was the most awful hotel experience I have EVER had. They say a picture paints a thousand words, so have a look at the pictures I took of our room, which are attached to this review, and you will see the extent of the filthy room and... More

We are a young couple and stayed here for 2 nights from 26th September. They were very helpful when we rung to find our way, and man on reception was very helpful with giving us tram timetables and night bus timetables. There was some writing on bathroom door from previous stayers but was clean and bed was very comfortable. Maid... More

Came for a cheap break and found it delightful. Staff on reception a delight upon arriving after long journey, super helpful and full of banter. I believe we stayed in a refurbished room, which was simple, but scrupulously clean. Bathroom again scrupulously clean couldnt find anything to moan about at all!! Outside seating area. Breakfast was good but dear. Overall... More

On the positive side the West Side is close to the city center, ten minutes by taxi, its relatively clean - consider that as "not dirty" -- with friendly service and good breakfast. Sounds okay, right? Missing are air conditioning, laundry service, hair dryers, irons, a working phone system and in about half the rooms, windows that open. Yes, its... More
