After seeing many bad reviews I was concerned about staying however for the money this hotel was perfect. Rooms were basic but large and our double bed was huge. Everything was clean and maids gave us new towels and toiletries each day. Free wifi was good to check maps and transport round the city and seeing as your on holiday... More

This is by far the rudest hotel I have been too. Not only does it not have any air conditioner. Which i got told they do not actually advertise . I got yelled by staff at front desk for not properly listing my minor kids. I requested to change rooms and to be informed that it is not procedure... I... More

The hotel is located in some quite area in Amsterdam, near to the center of the city. The metro station or the tram station is 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. If you want to get to the city center by tram, you will take tram no 2, but the journey is very long about 45 minutes, to the... More

I wasn't very picky and I wanted cheap hotel so I found this one. The hotel is OK, not a great one but good for this money. The room was OK, but the the bathroom was not very nice. My greatest disappointment was the WiFi - it was instantly kicking me out and I could not use it at all.

I do not advise this hotel for allergic people because carpets and curtains didnt seem to be cleaned correctly. When you open the window you will find à lot of dirt and dust and the air conditionning was out of order even if it was so hot in the room with an old person. I would give 5/10. The receptionnist...

Nothing excellent about this hotel. I could say that on a rating scale is below average but comparing the cost with what you could get in Amsterdam it is value for money. On the good side you get clean sheets, clean bathroom, staff OK and good location (by tram you can be in City Center in 10-20 minutes). The down... More
