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

Location near train station, bus station, information center, also near some attractions and supermarkets, right where the actions are. Good for travelers who want to make use of time here and minimize time wasted on commuting. Just as I wanted. Just close one eye on the hotel condition (not extremely bad for 2 nights) as this is the lowest price... More

We stayed here on a city break and booked through booking.com. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the train station right in the red light district. The first problem with the hotel is the staff. Very ignorant and rude asian men. They said I had to pay more money that the booking.com price I had, I have... More

We reserved are room via Booking.Com. When we arrived we paid €140 for 2 nights and the owners attitude was stinking as well as his so called Bar. We walked up the stairs which was covered in dirt on floor and walls, the twin room was a disgrace, Brown Duck Tape was holding the smashed glass window together. The shared... More

Recently stayed in the hotel for a 2 night break with a group of lads, ideal for that but not somewhere for couples. Rooms are very basic but clean beds which is all we wanted as we were only in there a few hours a night. Great location however the night porter is a miserable bugger but the guy on... More

I wanted a place close to the station. The photo of the area on their website makes it looks like it's in a peaceful tranquil area - however it's right next to the hussle and bussle of central Amsterdam night life. The room was ultra basic - a bed, a sink, a light and a clothes hanger. A radiator that... More

I could hear clinching all night and some weird sexual sounds. I guess there are some kind of dodgy dungeons where strange things happen! It is central, but surely you are better off spending the night in the red light area than trying to sleep there.

The stairs were very steep and narrow, making it difficult to manage luggage up and down. Room size was adequate but had no facilities. eg no bedside lights or TV. It was surprisingly quiet at night though

The only hotel I have ever stayed in to have completely sucked the life out of the excitement of being on holiday. The location is fantastic, right by the Red Light District and by all the bars and coffeeshops. But don't expect anything at all from the hotel. When we checked out, we asked if we could leave our luggage... More
