This hotel is very close to the central station with a bus stop next to it for those who buy amsterdam pass great place to start those trips. People in the hotel are very friendly and really helpful. I had to switch hotel because the one we stayed before was really bad - Hotel Sint Nicolaas Amsterdam. Avoid this hotel.... More

Staff - On arrival the gentleman on the desk carried our cases up the 4 flights of stairs to room 25 which was very kind and thoughtful, on departure a different guy said he would offer to help but had a "bad back". Stairs - steep, narrow & dirty. Room - Damp smell, suspect linen/towels, I refused to walk on... More

this hotel is cheap, which says a lot, the stairs almost turn vertical at points (which can be a little weird!!) The breakfast is non-existent, a small room with some unidentified food around the outside! the room (for 5) was cramped. Having said all of the above, if you reqiure a cheap and cheerful hotel in the centre of amsterdam... More

It is an unforgetable experience staying at this hotel. Pictures on Internet from booking agents are nice, huge difference when you are there. Actually this is not a hotel, but you must stay one night and you can get out of there because you have paid for it. Before our trip, we reserved this hotel because of good location from... More

A friend and I booked here for a three night stay, on the basis of an Amsterdam hotels web-site entry, which described it as simple but comfortable, and had an OK photo of a room. The price was in the budget range (230 euros each for 3 nights), so one wasn't expecting too much, but even so the experience was... More

First things first - booked the hostel, then remembered about this website! Had we read the reviews (apart from the owner's obvious contribution at the end!), we would not have booked. As always, is something sounds too good to be true, it probably is - this place is too cheap to be "all that"! Having said that, it did lower... More

As we booked the Center Hotel over the internet, we were unprepared for what awaited us. The steep stairs to the first floor reception area were dirty and the tiny reception area had ceiling tiles missing, with electric cables hanging through the gaps. The manager insisted we pay for all 4 nights we had booked up front. When we saw... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
