This hotel, now simply referred to as The Rookies Hotel(right off Leidseplein about 30 seconds walk to the square), has made some changes (adding the separate bar and restaurant) due to new local rules about serving alcohol in coffee shops. The hotel is above it's coffee shop, but the room we stayed in (23) was excellent, large, facing the back,... More

A somewhat quirky little hotel situated above 'The Rookies' coffeeshop. If you can cope with the resulting laid back atmosphere then this is probably The Place for you to stay in Amsterdam. The hotel location is ideal - there are many small restaurants and bars on the same street, the museums are about five minutes walk away and the Albert... More

The Hotel Uptown or Rookies Hotel as it now called is a small hotel with the usual steep stairs. The rooms are not a bad size by British standards but Americans will find them a bit on the small size.Free Wi-Fi in the rooms is a bonus as some of the other hotels I have stayed in charge up to...

Amsterdam is not exactly a cheap place if we talk about hotels so finding a little gem like the Uptown is wonderful. Is almost perfectly placed just next to Ledseplein but as far as you won't be disturbed. Rooms are quite basic but even more clean than 4 and 5 star hotels I've stayed. Breakfast is also quite basic but... More

For a crash pad for a weekend in Amsterdam this is a good choice. The location is very handy - just a couple of hundred yards off the Leidseplein so close to some good bars, restaurants and clubs but not so close that you are too disturbed at night. Rookies coffeeshop on the ground floor is one of the nicest... More

Last time I went to Amsterdam, I paid the same amount and ended up in a really grotty room I was scared hadn't seen a clean in months!! This time I went to Amsterdam I was overjoyed with the Hotel Uptown. The first thing you find upon checking in is the beautiful little terrace they have out back, a perfect... More

We stayed at the UPTOWN hotel a while ago and whilst it is not the HILTON The rooms are clean and tidy but fairly basic, but this is made up for by the friendliness of the staff. If you want good porterage forget it but they do tell you with a smile the light buffet breakfast was a joy to... More
