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

The Hotel Ben is a must for those on a budget looking for city centre accomodation. 5 Mins from Central Station makes this the ideal base to explore the delights of Amsterdaqm ... as long as you are not fussy. Points to note: 1) I had a room at the top - I didn't count all the steps but once... More

As a reasonably experienced Amsterdam traveller (5 trips), I do know that hotel luxury can be hard to come by, especially when the purse strings are tight. I also know that a 2-night weekend (Fri/Sat) stay in a (very) central en-suite double room, for 65-euro per night, is a VERY good deal. Nevertheless, I was still a little taken aback... More

If you're looking for luxury and fanciness then this is NOT the place for you. On the other hand, it suited our needs perfectly... centrally located and cheap. Friendly staff, we had a problem with the flushing, and the handyman fixed it straight away, and extra friendly house cat, which is adorable. The only downside was that we had to... More

On arriving the room was quite high up. As hotel was fully booked on the Sunday we where offered too move if we felt was too many stairs. (My dad suffered a heart attack the previous year). Moved the next day. Very helpful at reception to provide directions etc. The hotel is very basic but clean, if you don't plan... More
