After much deliberation deciding where to stay , we resorted to looking for a hotel upon arrival in Amsterdam , With the rain pouring down on us , we soldiered on to the out skirts of the city , assuming a budget hotel or a better price would fit the bill.unfortunately not having much luck,we headed back to central station...

Please read the other reviews and take note, EVERYTHING mentioned in the previous comments are correct. We booked on the internet, and on arriving were jarred for 'extra' money as the money already paid online wasn't enough. We told him to hang fire and we'd come back down to reception after dropping off bags. Before we had the chance a... More

Room was clean (definitely no rodents). WC/shower (not ensuite) were OK. Room was tiny, but quiet (at the back of the building). Stairs were terrible (I have a bad knee). EUR 45 was OK value for such a central location (Hotels were filling up because of cancellations at Schipol). TV was pretty useless. Staff were rude (one was definitely sinister).... More

Technically, I didn't stay in this dump. I was on a layover in AMS and decided to go to the city center. Since my flight to Brussels is in early morning, I decided to just spend the night at the hostel. Hotel Jimmy was along the street so I decided to look. The staff just asked me to register, asked...

this hotel (if you can call it that) was by far the worst place to stay anywhere in the world. After handing over 180 euros we were given room 28 which sat three floors up the worst staircase known to man. Once inside we couldnt believe it a 4x8 jail cell complete with bunks dirty prison like bedding a small... More

The problems started already with one night. The guy during the day didn't speak Dutch, got angry the moment a friend came upstairs to meet me, had different prices than the guy in the evening, refused to pay back the key deposit, dirty showers, bad breakfast. I have in 21 years travels never seen such a bad hotel. But the... More

The so called 'hotel' Jimmy may have been the most disgusting and degrading hotel I have ever stayed in. I have travelled around europe the last 2 summers and stayed in grotty hostels for less than 10euro but this one is by far thee worst. They stuck 3 of us(all girls) in a room with one bed and threw down... More
