I stayed here in the end of April in a 3 bed room. We were only here for 3 nights and it served it's purpose. But the room wasn't very clean (especially the bathroom) and the staff was extremely unhelpful. We chose this hotel because it was all of our first times in Amsterdam and we wanted to be able...

The hotel has a really good location, just a few minutes to the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark... Also you can go on foot to the central area or take the tram to other attractions which are not so close. The staff is friendly. The only problem is there is no lift in the hotel and you need to carry... More

Great location and central to the main attractions in Amsterdam. The hotel was very quirky, the rooms spacious and clean and I liked the fact you could help yourself to tea and coffee at reception. We were also able to leave our bags free of charge and safely after check out on the last day, to allow us to sight... More

Hotel is clean all basic needs tv hair dryer wardrobe but no drawers. We did have a safe in our room at no extra cost and our room was fairly big but I... More

It was quite short notice when we booked this hotel and many of the most attractive small boutique hotels and Bed and Breakfasts were already fully booked so, The Iron Horse was chosen in spite of it not being most obviously ideal. However, we found that the hotel's location, and accommodation suited us perfectly. After a slightly unprepossessing reception area... More

I loved the idea of staying in a converted horse stalls, but while there's nothing badly wrong, the reality was less charming than I expected. There are a lot of good points and the hotel provided all necessary service you need. The breakfast was sufficient and price reasonable (apart from the coffee that was horrible). The location of the hotel... More

I was having so much trouble finding a place to stay in Amsterdam until I happened upon this charming hotel on a travel website. I absolutely love quirky hotels in historical builings so it was an instant yes, and I was not disappointed! Hotel is located in the former horse police station on the Overtoom, just outside of Leidseplein (which... More

I only booked this hotel, because our accommodation was not available for the last night in Katwoude. The dislikes about this hotel: not being able to open windows, it was very dark in the room. I love bright rooms. The coffee machine in the lobby was nice, the staff was friendly and the location was great, close to the museum... More

Centrally located hotel near to all attractions and right in the heart of the canal district. Our first room, however, had a view of a steel girder blocking out everything. (Room 210, booked through Expedia) We asked to be moved to room with a better view and the hotel staff were very helpful and placed us in a much better... More

Great little hotel in a great location. Historic building repurposed ( former mounted police stable) and well designed. Clean, compact, simple, comfortable with no frills. Staff were just great. Friendly and very helpful with advice for getting around, restaurants, and so forth. Breakfast optional; nice food market almost next door. Easy trip by bus from the airport. Would definitely stay...
