The hotel was easy to find located over a bar. The rooms were small and simple but clean. The bath area was also clean and water pressure was fine. Staff was friendly. The price was very reasonable. It is fine for an overnight stay if you are looking for a convenient budget The tourist area is all around the property.... More

It was such a very bad experience dealing with the Old Nickel Hotel. We booked the hotel online for one triple room and we were pushed to pay as we arrived - even if we did not use the room. The hotel was as not as we're expected at all and it was not as advertised. For such room's condition,... More

Stayed on a number of occasions. Good bar downstairs, clean.easier going down the stairs In the morning than trying to navigate going up after a big night. Love the old school music in the bar and the locals. Close distance to red light bars

Just popped in here for a quick beer since the outside looked nice with it's leaded windows. We were pleasantly surprised to find comfy seats, a large beer selection, and some classic 60s tunes on. Stayed for a couple more than planned!

Being here for 3 nights with two more friends and enjoyed as the most! it is just 5 minutes from the Central Station, red light district and main tourist areas. It is the perfect place to stay being a tourist in Amsterdam. Breakfast is not the best (bacon omelette and coffee, if you want a juice, pay from your pocket)... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend in February for 2 nights. It did the job, just not comfortably. The location is great, however we weren't in the main hotel, we were escorted to a random building down the street. It got really loud at night, but that's a given considering its location.The room was clean enough, just not very well maintained.... More

Less than 5min walk from central station. 15 to Dam square and 5to red light. Restaurants/bars/cafes on doorstep. Had top floor room, really steep stairs awkward to manoeuvre if had a few drinks or a smoke. Shared toilet and shower clean. Bin emptied daily and bed made up (but bedding NOT changed). Would recommend for a cheap few days in... More

Went here to explore the city and this is an excellent base, close to all the main attractions. Price is good, rooms are clean and people are friendly. Nice bar on the ground floor and you can take your drinks up to your room. Great live music too!

Perfect hotel for exploring he city, right beside the red light district. The rooms are small but the beds were very comfortable. Everything about the place was very clean. Showers and toilets were perfect too. Very peaceful day and night. Staff just left u alone and seemed very laid back. Some great restaurants nearby. Would definitely go back.
