location just around the corner from dam square, and on the street of the red light district so was great being in the centre. most of the staff incredibly rude and unhelpful. shower room/toilet shared between four rooms but was quite smelly and unclean. nothing in the room to put clothes in (chest of drawers would've been nice). only one...

Location wise, this place was excellent, no doubt about that! At first I was a bit taken back to see so many prostitutes close to the hotel in day time and night time (could see one across the hotel from our room) but soon realized how convenient it is located, in the heart of red light district, very central Amsterdam...

First of all, it is important to understand I was there on a stag weekend where budget was important for some of those attending. I am a true believer in the fact that you get what you pay for and write this review in that spirit. The hotel seemed clean, some of the staff were better than others and it... More

Stayed in a nice room directly opposite the sex palace and could hear the crowd going crazy at some of the performance. Had a great view of canal and unfortunately a public toilet as well! Overall nice

I stayed with 2 other friends and the staff were nice people, breakfast was nice and simple and it was a very affordable place. Stayed for 2 nights and had a ensuite bathroom and free WiFi. The stairs are probably the only negative thing for me. Steep and tiring after a long day of walking but worth it when you... More

Lets be clear here. If you are looking for a hotel to take your wife for a romantic weekend away, this is probably not the hotel for you. If you like luxury, lifts to take your bags up to the room, a concierge service, this is NOT the hotel for you. However if you are looking for cheap, clean accommodation... More
