We have stayed here twice now and would be staying again if it wasn't fully booked this year on out trip weekend. Part of me wants to slate the place in the hope it puts people off and we can have it to ourselves as a 'hidden gem' of Amsterdam but that would not be fair to the owners. It... More

Centrally located, affordable, has a cool bar (which doubles as the hotel reception desk), allows smoking, and has a coffeeshop next door. We got a double en-suite room for 110 euros for one night in June. The reservation was quite easy and fast, all via the internet. The only bad thing was that the email response from the hotel included... More

These rooms are really nice, tastefully decorated and quiet. The included breakfast is good and the location is so close to everything.The staff are friendly too. Excellent value. Even though you can't hear street noise, there are church bells nearby! This accommodation may not be suitable for everyone as the stairs to climb are very steep (remember this is the... More

Can't fault the place one bit! There were 6 of us...All girls, 3 staying in the hotel and myself, my daughter and my friend in an apartment just around the corner. So easy to find when you come out of the station and Jonathan sorted us out right away even bringing us more bedding and towels to our room. Breakfast... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was terrific, and the staff were extremely nice and friendly, helping us a lot! The location can't be better, 10-min (probably less) walk from Amsterdam Centraal, and close to several city spots i.e. Dam, Red Light District, museums, etc. There's no elevator however, and the stairway...

Stayed here a few nights ago with a friend and really enjoyed my stay. We stayed in the retro room, which was clean and had fresh towels everyday. It did still smell of weed from the previous guests but this did not bother us as we were going to do the same thing.the stairs were a bit epic so I... More

Following a previous visit to Amsterdam where we stayed at this hotel, we were keen to book again for the 17th May 2014. The booking was made back last November, of which we booked the 4 available apartments as there is a group of 16 of us. We were disappointed to receive an email a matter of days ago, stating... More

Smoking is allowed in this hotel, so all sheeting smelt cannabis and cigarette! It's a too noisy hotel , a machine such as generator worked 24/24 and it was disturbing especially during the night. Travelers upstairs were young boys that they laughed with loud voice during the night, they carried the beds, chairs and ..... until 3:30 am! they smoked... More

I stayed here last September, the room was far better then I thought from the pictures... being quite pricey and my friend insisting on the room we had. However, we stayed here for 3 nights and I loved it... the perfect place for hanging out- going to see all the sites it is very well located. The price wasn't bad... More
