I've been to Amsterdam many times and have stayed in all manner of places. If you are in a group and on a budget or want something quirky then I would highly recommend this place. We stayed in two quad-apartments and they were great fun. Centrally located, albeit on the edge of the red-light district, everywhere was easily accessible -... More

Nestled among the many hotels, restaurants, and coffeeshops of Warmoestraat is The Greenhouse Effect Hotel, Bar, and Coffeeshop. The location is superb, close to the Central Station, the Dam, and Nieuendijk, as well as the Oude Kirk and the Red Light District. The rooms, as most in Amsterdam, tend to be small, but they are comfortable. Most are themed, offering... More

We stayed in the Redman room for three nights in June and really enjoyed the stay. We had to share shower and toilet but were impressed by the cleanliness and weren't bothered at all with this arrangement. We never really used the bar or Coffee shop as there are just to many places to try. The room was very small... More

The location , just 400 metres, walk from Centraal station ,is perfect for anyone wanting to be in the Dark Heart of Amsterdam. You check in with Paul the barman in the bar, who is great , efficient and full of tips, no matter how busy the bar is --and it always is! Rooms , clean , tidy , secure... More

When I saw the pictures of the rooms I was mildly surprised. I booked on-line and gave them my credit card details. I did have to wait 24 hours to... More

My wife and I spent Easter in Amsterdam, staying at this apartment, this is second time we've stayed here. Booked it via [--] which worked well, they provided real time booking info so the confirmation arrived quickly. Picked up the keys from the Green House Effect coffeeshop/bar/hotel on Warmeosstraat and walked over to Nieuwmarket Square where the apartment is located.... More
