This hotel is in a perfect location; 5 min walk to Dam Square and 2-3 min walk to the Anne Frank house. It was cheap, with our last minute booking, and was clean. We shared a bathroom and toilet with other people on our floor, which was fine. They are clean and in working order. The beds are very comfy... More

Brilliant location...close to central station and trams 13 and 17 stop nearby and near Anne Franks House, bars, restaurants. Once in my room, it was really quiet. The only outside noise was the church clock bells. I was a bit worried about being next to the staircase, but it's not a huge hotel so although I was woken by people... More

me and two friends were heading to Amsterdam for the weekend. We wanted the supposedly impossible.. Central, but cheap yet not a dump. We were very glad we found hotel pax on trip advisor. The location is fantastic and the price is fantastic value. We arrived after a short walk from the train station and climbed its steep stairs. We... More

Stayed in this hotel recently. The hotel was so affordable and very central location. Everything was walking distance and there are bus and tram stops just outside. The Anne Frank Museum is literally across the road. Perfect to beat the queues!! If you are looking for cheap, convenient accommodation then this is what you are looking for! There are a... More

Although being posted as a 1* hotel this place was certainly above expectations. Though me and my boyfriend are a young couple and don't look for anything luxury- just travelling- this was perfect! There were steep stairs but I believe this just added character to the hotel. We also had a balcony so it wasn't necessary to walk up and... More

This is a typical hotel for Amsterdam - located in an old building with lots of stairs. The location was great - within a walking distance of The Dam and with easy connections to other parts of the city. Our room was at the top floor and had a balcony overlooking Raadhuisstraat, but was quite nonetheless. Fresh towels were provided... More
