I just got back from a weekend in Amsterdam where I spent two nights at Marnix Hotel with 5 friends. Since it was all booked last minute we did not have much choice as far as accomodation was concerned. But we're all former backpackers in our thirties now and decided it would be fun to re-live that dorm-room experience. Since... More

I have travelled to quite a few places and stayed in various budget hotels and hostels, but this was by far the worst. The staff (all one of them that I saw) was very short with us, and scruffy. Theres no lift and the stairs are lethal, but then they are in a lot of places in amsterdam. the floors... More

For its price, the Marnix Hotel is decent. The location is good, the breakfast is free and goodsized. Nevertheless, the hotel is also understaffed, so donät expect to check in on time. The cleanliness is also subpar, but if you've gone to Amsterdam for the right reasons, then it shouldn't matter anyway.

The hotel was comparatively cheap, but it was ugly, uncomfortable, and very low key, ideal for smoking and not much more. Not the place to enjoy your room. The only good things were its location near the Leidseplein and the friendliness of some of the personnel.

This is the sort of dump where you definately want to leave your socks on while walking around the room. Filthy bed linens, cigarette butt left on windowsill and `stuff' on the carpets. No soap in bathroom. And at 100 euros, you'd at least expect breakfast to be included, which it wasn't. Then again, considering how disgusting the place was,... More

We stayed at the Marnix mid September 04. The location was good, the room was clean, the staff was friendly. The room was tiny. There were two single beds on either side of the room with a narrow path between them and a sink at the end. The shared toiled and shower were clean.
