Our family of 4 stayed in their loft room which allowed for 2 twin beds on one floor and then you went up some stairs for 3 twin beds. There was no a/c available and it was very warm, so we needed to have the windows open for air - the problem was the window faces the street (very noisy... More

First, the guy at the front desk was not very helpful and very rude. The room was terrible. I paid for a double room and got two single beds. The carpet was very dirty, no soap in the bathroom, no air conditioning, linens look like the were there since Noah built his ark. The location of the hotel is fantastic... More

stayed here with a group of friends and would definitely not recommend. Staff are extremely rude and inappropriate - knocking on our door telling us to be quiet because other guests were sleeping. It was 6pm and we were talking not screaming! Male owner kept popping out of corners to stare at us when we walked past and also proceeded... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and would not recommend to anyone who has a sense if humour .. The staff were rude, and the male manager would linger outside your room to prevent any laughing or talking too loud by banging the door . The stairs are lethal , very narrow and one of girls I travelled with fell... More

Horrible experience in room no 5 at the back of the hotel. No free WI fi,kettle but no tea or coffee. Not even a bar of soap and the bathroom could do with a good refurb. No place to sit and no reception area and the continental breakfast did not include toast or a toaster. Avoid at all costs it's... More

Recent family trip to Amsterdam. They had a family room that can accommodate 5 adults. Three beds are upstairs in a "loft". Fantastic view of the canal and right on the main line of trams coming out of central station. The location is handy and view is great but there can be some noise. The weather was cool and we...

This relatively small hotel is wonderfully situated in the heart of the old city centre. The staircases are steep (and get steeper as you go higher) but not impossible even with a big case. I was pleased to see that the stairs are duplicated providing an alternative escape route in case of fire. We stayed in a third floor room... More

After having had a mix-up and our reservation being cancelled at another hotel, we searched the internet and found this hotel! We had a great family room over-looking a canal and the streetscape of Amsterdam. Our room was spacious for European standards and had a king-sized bed for us and a cool open loft for our kids with 3 single... More

We actually stayed here a couple of years ago (despite what the timing says on the review...... it was a bit of a pin in the map job but we checked the reviews here before booking and weren't disappointed. The only real difficulty we had was getting there...sat nav and old Amsterdam don't mix. Once there, they organized for our... More
