If you end up in Room 5, as I have for tonight and tomorrow night, be aware that the facilities that booking.com describe as "private bathroom facilities" aren't ensuite, they're two doors away (albeit there's a piece of paper on them that says they're for the use of room 5 only). Sorry, but having to get fully dressed in order... More

We had rotens in our room! Ate some of my chocolate bar in the middle of the night. Could hear everything in the hallway and the nightclub downstairs shared their music all night. Boring breakfast. Otherwise clean and nice service. Great location! Find somewhere else!

Stayed here with a group of friends over a mid week. As previous reviewers have said, watch for the really steep stairs! The rooms were decent enough, though one of them had low headroom; even the smallest of our party banged his head. The other rooms were fine. Even though a request was made for the rooms to be twin... More

It's cheap in cost Watch out for the added tax on arrival It's grotty but it's cheap, ok location Little noisy Wouldn't talk my wife or recommend it for couples but a group of friends in Amsterdam for a boozy weekend is what it's for Cross between hotel and hostel. Steep staircases and low ceilings

For: good location near the Munt and on the Amstel, nice views, one nice reception man. Against: narrow, very steep stairs, worn out decor, 5% extra on bill not advertised on website, twin bed request not honoured and an unsavoury exchange ensued; female non-Dutch 'manager' had an appalling attitude, very unfriendly and unhelpful, room very small, safe broken, average breakfast...

Anything that could be good in this hotel has been erased by a little visitor that came to us in the morning: a rat. Could be one or several, and it could be in the night among our clothes. Can you imagine?! We asked to change the room, but the new room have no window! Asked again, and now we... More

This narrow townhouse converted into a hotel certainly evokes Amsterdam's maritime history. From the landing window there's a fine view of the Amstel river with various craft passing by the lock gates. The staircases are steep and narrow enough to resemble the between-decks stairs on a Dutch Golden Age sailing vessel. The rooms are small enough to suggest ships' cabins.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
