We got there a 10 am and they made us wait until 3 pm to get to our rooms because the were '' cleaning''. Once in the room we found lots of hair in the shower, absolutely revolting. Two days later we found three mice in our room (room 3).So we went to complaint, and the employee found it normal,... More

Do NOT BOOK this hotel. They do not accommodate people according to their booking. I was asked to leave the hotel to find something else. They had 3 people to compete for one room! Scammers!!! Horrible experience for me and three other men. Where we could complain? Never use their web-site to book this hotel!

No problems with this place. Clean and quiet and a good location, and good price. The stairs are quite steep to get up and down, but this is common in Amsterdam. I spent my last night in the dorm which I wouldn't recommend because it's right next to the lobby and breakfast area so noisy in the early morning.

I booked this hotel with a fully refundable deal if cancelled ahead of the time. I cancelled my booking a month prior to the check in. What do I see? Charges on my credit card. More shocking was the amount on my credit card. They charged me the double of the whole stay! No contact to my emails.. I am... More

The best thing going for this hotel is the location, right outside the inner canal loop. I was aware and prepared for the steep steps, shared facilities and no lift. The single room I was given on the fifth floor was updated and even roomy by European standards. The bathrooms were clean and the water was hot. When we arrived,... More

The hotel is small but every hotel in Amsterdam are small. The room was only the bed and an a chair with a small table, no space for baggage. The most horrible thing was the bathroom. the shower was terrible, everytime I got a shower, the whole bathroom was flooded and you could see all the dirt up. We talked... More

My best friend and I stayed here for a weekend in Amsterdam, the location is great, just 5 mins from Leiseplein and 10 from Rembrandtplein, the beds were so comfortable, perfect when you need a rest after a hard nights partying! The downside though was the shared toilet, it was a struggle to sit down and my knees were hitting... More

I stayed there with two friends for three days, it's five minute walk away from leidseplein, and fifteen minute walk from Dam square, and two minute away from Vondelpark and the musuemplein and one minute away from a supermarket.

Last year I was accommodated with friends at Hotel Crystal in Amsterdam. Hotel is set in a prime location in the centre of Amsterdam. Room was very commonly furnished but clean. In hotel is available high-speed wireless connection free of charge. It is a hotel, which is situated in good location and for a good price.
