Greenhouse Effect's Uptown apartment was a great place to stay. Great view of Damrak from the living room. Place was clean enough but could have used some housekeeping for our 6 day stay. Floors got a little gritty. Fresh towels were provided daily outside our door since our do not disturb sign was up most of the time. I would... More

Last visted this place 3 1/2 years ago, on booking in August found out that the manager, Ruth, was still there. The hotel & cafe is about a 5 min walk from the Dam Rak... A very swift and pleasant booking followed taking the rooms Urban Chill, Lounge Suite, Dutch Touch and Global Fusion. Given a very warm welcome and... More

We stayed in the Turkish Delight Room for a week in September. Considering we were in Europe the room was a decent size for two people, and the ensuite bathroom was acceptable/average. The staff was nice in the bar and just bareable in the coffeehouse. The hotel was in a great location; however, a little sketchy for two girls walking... More

We stayed in the Uptown Apartment with another couple, so there was 4 of us, and the apartment was spacious, clean and in a brilliant location. It overlooks one of the many canals, and is in the middle of everything. I have been to Amsterdam 6 times now and love it as a city, and in my opinion these apartments... More

Dirty, grubby, over priced and unsafe. I stayed in 5 different apartments during my 3 week stay and this one scrapped the bottom. I booked a lovely apart through LOVING AMSTERDAM for only 10 euros a night more and I got a bedroom, big kitchen, large living room, big outside roof terrace. Just goes to show that this squalid bedsit... More

The front of the room is a complete contrast to the back.You leave... More

OMG! We have just come back from the Dam and we stayed in the Global Fusion and City Oasis rooms which are actually in Niuew Markt (not Warmoestraat). Global Fusion was lovely decor and fab TV for chilling but City Oasis was huge! We comfortably sat 6 of us in the lounge late at night! City Oasis will sleep 4... More

The room could have done with a makeover. I found it exspensive as the room was very small and tacky. The toilet was tiny could just about brush my teeth in the sink. There was no view out of my window and all i could hear was bells ringing. The staff was friendly and the continental breakfast was lovely but... More

We stayed in the Market Suite apartment which overlooks Nieuwmarket Square. The lounge was huge with picture windows overlooking the Square. We spent many relaxing hours people watching from the sofa. Its an ideal location and the apartment makes for a chilled out break in the city. We would love to go again but every date we have tried to... More
