Stayed in the 2 person apartment on newmaarkt - great apt, all you need for a short stay in a great 'people watching' location! Linen & towels clean. Definitely would go back. Obviously if you dont like the smell of smoke or the look of Prostitutes plus small stairs this isnt the place for you!!

Just got back from a 3day break in Amsterdam staying at 'The Greenhouse Effect'... great location, nice friendly staff, clean room (I was in the 'red light' room)... for people who know what Amsterdam is all about this is a great place to stay.

Me and my friend have just come back from a weekend in Amsterdam, made even better by the service we received from the staff at The Greenhouse Effect. They were extremely helpful, friendly and very welcoming, the apartment we stayed in was clean, modern and had lovely views. Right in the redlight district with coffeeshops and bars a few steps...

... no shower curtain, burned out light bulbs and a bag of garbage left from a previous stay or by some neighbor on the stairs at our door. All of this we were not expecting to face up but we did. And we survived! Also they have a very cheap toilet paper so we had to buy a better one.... More

Good atmosphere, comfortable surroundings, good central location... fruit smoothies to die for. Would recommend in seasons when it's not too busy. Holidays = crowds. Music is chilled and enables chatting to friends, which some other venues miss.

after arriving home from a 4 night stay at the greenhouse effect Amsterdam I thought it was only right to write a review straight away to get across to all readers how vile this "hotel" is. I would like to make a huge point that I was never expecting upscale luxury - this hotel was just beyond gross. After paying... More

We loved the greenhouse effect. The location is great, the service is fab and the breakfasts are leisurely and full of options. The apartment we stayed in was about 5 mins walk from the greenhouse cafe and bar (which we didn't expect), but it was in the Nieumarket (can't spell!) and was actually a better location - next to an...

Had a great stay here in Amsterdam, we even came back for a second visit. Brilliant knowledgeable helpful staff, excellent music policy. Just a short walk from the train station where the train runs directly from the airport. The decor themes were excellent and the accomodation was basic but good, everything that you would require for a city break in... More
