This hotel has bad reviews because of the previous owners!! The new owner who has been running this place for a few months, renovated it and mentioned that the living conditions were horrible! The decoration is nice, some of the staff is really nice and helpful.Wi-fi works pretty well. Its very close by foot to the Centre and main transportation... More

I hate giving bad reviews, but when one is due, its due. I was supposed to stay here last week, but the day before my travels, due to unfortunate personal circumstances I was unable to travel. I immediately called the hotel to cancel my reservation, and kindly requested for a refund. And if not a full refund, then at least... More

We booked this hotel rather last minute (about 2/3 weeks before we were due to arrive in Amsterdam) and for the price (£143.50 for 2 nights in a double room) we were not expecting what we got. We were expecting a bit of a shabby hotel but what we got was a beautiful town house hotel within walking distance of... More

I couldn't really fault this hotel, the room as basic but what you'd expect for the price you pay. Steep stairs which seem to be a given for Amsterdam. Wifi is a bit hit and miss but the fact that it's included is great anyway. The hotel staff were great and helped us with directions. There's a lidl up the... More

I spend two nights here. The room was minimal- a bed, TV, sink, desk and chair but it was clean and comfortable. Pros: Great location- 5 min walk to town and very near ameneties such as bars and restaurants. Price- was one of the cheapest places we could find in Amsterdam. The staff on the whole are great- very friendly... More

We´ve stayed for 4 nights. Room was very poor, just bed; bathroom equipment poor as well, no facilities such as hair dryer or bath kit as written while booking, but at the end happy for taking room with our own bathroom althouth it´s quite expensive in Amsterdam even in 2* hotel. Stuff was quite helpfull if you ask twice :)... More

Our stay here was for four nights during August. This place as I've said in the title was nothing special but did what it was meant to do. Had a shower and bed which really when staying in a place like Amsterdam is all one needs. There is so much to do in this city that's all we required! It... More

Good points - Great location within walking distance of all the attractions, trams and night life. The staff were very friendly and helpful and a Lidl supermarket is just around the corner. Also the TV worked fine and some English channels were available. Bad points - First of all you can't check in until 3pm which was a pain as... More
