Way too expensive for what you get, the floors were filthy and filled with stains. The bathrooms were also dirty and old. Our room smelled moldy and gross. Sheets on the beds were semi-clean but had holes and stains. It's right in the middle of the red light district so it's quite noisy. I would not advise anyone to stay... More

I went for the World Cup with a group of friends and found the hotel great.The location for all the pubs was spot, only cost £70 for two nights, the beds were surprisingly comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this place for stags/hens

This hotel is what it is - a place to put your head. Dont expect massive things from this hotel, the stairs are cheap and the rooms are basic, but we found the hotel to be satisfactorily clean and the location was ideal. Would come back.

For 100 Euros a night you can get much better than a decrepit room with 2 twin beds sharing a bathroom and a toilet with other floor guests. Try the Hotel van Onna or the England Quentin Hotel both a 80 Euros a night! The van Onna comes with breaakfast and is close to Anne Frank's house, while the Quentin... More

I have nothing nice to say about this hotel. Dirty and disgusting. The toilets had not been cleaned in some time and the room shower was disgusting. Took one look and tried to cancel the booking immediately and also because the car parking organised also turned out to be a home made parking business with his friend. The receptionist was... More

Stayed at the crown for 2 nights, we had 2 rooms of 5 beds. We were a group of 10 lads, but I must admit reading the reviews I was slightly worried! BUT it was spot on! Yes not the nicest place I've stayed in but perfect for what we needed. Great location and great price, what more do you... More

When we checked in the older gentleman tried to charge us an extra €100, he did the same thing in 2013... More

Despite the brilliant location (five minute walk from centraal station) I wouldn't advise a dog to sleep here. The 'hotel' was absolutely appalling. I've stayed in hostels that made this place look like the ritz. For a start, it was advertised as having en-suite facilities, which it did not at all. Instead there was a tiny bathroom and separate dingy... More
