Cant complain really, did not pay much so did not expect much in return. Room was clean though, man on reception was helpful, only downside was when opening the curtains it opened out straight into someone else's room. Three chaps were sitting right there to make it even worse, had a good laugh about it but obviously the curtains remained... More

You can always get fooled by the web and the pictures. This duty hotel is in an area infested by hookers, pick pockets and anti socials. They will invariably invade you at a little late hours if you are on the street. No wonder that it is just behind a square where you can see lots of bar and cannabis... More

Hotel is poorly signed and is filthy. Breakfast just toast and nothing more. Room was filthy and extremely noisy at night, some nightclubs downstairs. I would not recommend to anyone. Also moldy shower and moldy walls and stinking corridors.

Location was perfect, 20 minute walk from the train station. The hotel is surrounded by plenty of restaurants, bars, and clubs. The rooms could of been cleaner however it was nothing to complain about. My only issue is that the hotel as no Lift. I would only recommend this hotel for young people that are in Amsterdam to party.

It was disgusting. The smell was horrendous, bathroom revolting, cleanliness non existant! There must have been bed bugs because my wife and i are both covered in bites! We had to sleep on our backs, for fear that our faces would come into contact with the filthy smelly sheets or pillows! Very noisy also. Do not stay here!!!!

not far from the centre We spend just one night in this hotel and it was Sunday. It was imposible to sleep! Hotel located on the square of clubs and pubs. So it was very noise. We were living early in the morning and ask staff if they can make breakfast "to go", but they refused=(

We booked this place because it was central and good value at £176 for 2 nights. We stayed an hour and left. It smelt of vomit and Swede, the balcony (advertised) was the space on top of a roof filled with fag butts, urine, lost shoes, empty bottles and general crap. I have never walked outof a place until now.... More

We stayed there for one week. Right next to the pubs and clubs so there is a lot of noise. When you enter the building you have to climb up a steep flight of steps. The room we stayed in had mould on the walls in the bathroom. The breakfast was just bread with an option to toast it, and... More
