The hotel itself is smelly, the reception consists of cheap old plastic furniture. The stairs is covered by a carpet that is worn through so you can see the underlying staircase. Everything is dirty and smelly. Breakfast is included in the price, I skipped that one voluntarily, considering the standard of everything else in the hotel I definitely do not... More

I stayed at the Hotel Impala from 2 nights Fri 28th and Sat 29th March with two friends all of us female. The only good point about this hotel is that the bed covers were clean. We stayed in a quad room on the top floor. Yes the stairs are pretty steep but that is standard in Amsterdam. Apart from... More

I booked Hotel Impala for me and three friends over easter weekend. The cheap rate and great location seemed perfect. THEN I saw the reviews.... and foolishly decided to ignore them as we knew we were staying in a cheap, in effect - backbacker's hotel and wasn't expecting the Ritz. We arrived at about 09:30... we had to ring the... More

Moreover, when we had breakfast in the morning no one were there to help us and nothing was ready to be... More

Several rooms have nice views. Most do not. The small rooms were dark and dirty when we got there and stayed dirty during our stay. It is an old small dirty 1 star hotel with some potential to maybe be more. There were days without maid service because the maids had been fired for stealing. The rooms were not cleaned... More

For your own benefit please heed this warning........DO NOT BOOK AT THE IMPALA, unless that is you actually wish to stay in the filthiest and most overpriced hotel imaginable. We arrived at the the Impala having booked a standard room for 2 nights at 170 euro. A fairly cheap price agreed, but nothing could have prepared us for the standard... More
