You can smoke in the room.Clean room but a little old.Noise in the night,but you are in the centre.The hotel itself was budget so you get what you pay for. For a few days and a budget holiday I would certainly recommend Hotel... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and would stay here again! The hotel is in the perfect location and you would not get a hotel at this price in such a great location in any other city especially Amsteram. Yes maybe the rooms are not perfect but they are clean and its a bed to sleep in, your... More

Very bad hotel. 2 stars just for the position, for the rest there is any different between a toilet and the room of this "hotel". Very disappoint. It's cool that you can smoke in the room, it's amazing that you are receptionist 24h per day but is also true that the build is over. They need to refresh it properly.... More

Stayed 22nd jan for three nights as a party of 5. Staff always ready to help and smiling I've paid more for worse and you cannot argue about the price for what you get. Location spot on 5/10 mins walk for everything you'll need. Will recommend and stay again

The hotel has a good location cause you are right in the middle of the red light district and Dam square, but the hotel is really old and smelly. The room wasn't like in the photo on the website at all, really small and it wasn't looking so clean. Cold room. The bathroom inside the room is too small and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during the early stages of the year. The location is brilliant and only a couple blocks away from the RLD. Also there are plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you busy. The hotel itself was budget and was quite shabby. It is in need of a major face lift however it does the... More

The hotel is cheap indeed but dirty, very noisy, lots of stairs. In the morning on the day of check-out around 9-9:30 guy from the staff is going from room to room, opening the doors WHILE YOU ARE ASLEEP, waking you up, taking the key and TV remote himself and giving you back your deposit. Now imagine your girlfriend is... More

I paid over 200 Euros for 2 guests / 2 nights. Our room was not ready for check-in due to bathroom issues, we needed to come back 3 hours later. A discount was not offered. At least we could leave our bags there. The room and furniture is old and nagged which could be accepted. But dark dirt spots on... More

Four 25 y/o girls visiting Amsterdam for 4 nights in July to see the sights and party at night. We had a minimal budget but wanted a private bathroom and the safety of a hotel over a hostel. This was the best in the centre and we wanted to save money on transport, which we never used and walked everywhere... More
