If you want a budget accomodation in Amsterdams redlight district you will be okay. Be prepared for a very, very small room, dirty carpet and an old window that does not keep the noises from the very, very busy street out of the room. Check-out is 10:30 am. At 9:30 someone banged at our door to collect the key and... More

Cheap rooms, you get what you pay for... Aragont staff, filthy rooms, worst of all.... Visit from the Rats, big ones to, size of cats. Horrible, never again, places like that should be closed down. Do your self a favour, pay a little extra and go some where better.

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
