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

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights. I have stayed in other hotels in Amsterdam before and hotel Ben was about average with regards to size of room, decor etc However, i would choose to stay here again as it is right in the middle of all the action or a very short walk to other places. Also,... More

We stayed at Hotel Ben on May 29th and our stay was only (sadly!) one night. First of all, the hotel is extremely convenient to get to via Central Station which was extremely helpful after a few extremely long days of international travel. We had arrived very early that morning, and we were delighted that they would hold our luggage... More

We went to Amsterdam last weekend and stayed in Hotel Ben. As couple of posts below me I was a bit worried about the state of it as everyone was saying that it is not worth staying in there!! Couldn't be more wrong! First - location - absolutely fabulous! Located 5 minute walk from the Centraal station and as it... More

Exactly what is says on the Tin!! Five of us stayed here for 3 nights, we wanted something easy and with no hassle. This is what Hotel Ben delivered. It's so super close to the station and within walking distance to all amenities. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

My friends and I decided to go to Amsterdam as a late birthday present for my husband who turned 30 in January. There were eight of us in total, four boys and four girls. We left everything so last minute that when we booked the hotel and tickets as a package we didn’t even bother reading up about the hotel... More

If you consider this hotel, I would strongly recommend that you write a list of everything that you brought with you/shopped during the trip! I stayed there with a couple of girlfriends, and the last night I noticed that one of my bags was missing. I searched the room, with no luck, and then went to the reception to ask... More

Easy to find. Rooms were ready when we arrived. Nice big room. Gave us free wifi passes when we got there. The staff were very helpful & friendly. Would use again & highly recommended. Only downside would be only one electrical socket in the room.

The guy who sat behind the reception and who seemed to be the owner (same guy who is in the photos - dark hair) made us pay for 5 nights upfront - seemed dishonest already, assured us that the hotel is quiet and clean. After a climb to the top floor with heavy suitcases we discovered how nasty, dirty and... More
