Nice simple and clean hotel. The rooms are simple but well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. Tram station is near and in about 15 min you are in the center. If you are looking to save money this hotel is good option without compromising on quality too much.

Leave your car at hotel. Walk, bike or take the trams --3 mins from their front door. .A refreshing absence of traffic jams. Hotel located at an inner suburb ,everything in the city is easily accessible . Suggest take a room in the two main buildings , facing the canal and not the highway. Buffet breakfast at 10 euro is...

Very ordinary, too far from the city center, breakfast is just average and the staff are good. Rooms are some how clean but the size is ok. Seems to be for good for families rather than singles and youth, Not recommended if u like walking! The price was ok in Amsterdam, cant find cheaper.

The hotel is very cheap. The position is in Amsterdam periphery and not so near to the tram stop. The room is quite big (double room) but the toilet is terrible (bad smell, no hangers). Fortunely I stayed only one night. The breakfast is good. So, if you want to save money and you don't have particular claims, go in... More

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
