Well our first time in Amsterdam, the price we paid wasn't too bad. The room itself was about 30m down the road from the old nickel. The room we had was right at the top floor, the staircase is extremely narrow, the room is best described as a prison cell, there's a window but no need for one to be... More

We stayed at the Old Nickel Hotel and we found exactly what we are looking for; close to Central Station and district center. The Bar at the entrance is another plus; you might enjoy a beer all the while listening to live music in a cozy atmosphere

The rooms are dirty, the bed covers are filthy, the management is rude and could care less About customer service. The rooms are noisy, you will hear traffic and doors slam all night long. I have been traveling to Amsterdam for 15 years and this is the worst hotel (dive) I have ever stayed in. Buyer beware!!

We stayed in the Old Nickel as the first stop of our trip around Europe. As a group of 6 18 year olds the Old Nickel was perfect for us as we were all in one room and the location was excellent and easy to find. Our room was very basic and we found that we had everything we needed!... More

The hotel is over a bar which is ok unless the bar is full then the noise filters up. The location is ok being 5 mins from the central train station and next to many bars shops and cafes. The street outside stinks of weed from the hash cafes. The noise level during the night was unacceptable as people came... More

Very basic, stayed on top floor no issues sleeping but room not very clean and shared toilet always smelt so went on the floor below. Great location, staff friendly but wouldn't stay again. Stairs are really steep had to walk 5 sets to top floor killer on the legs!

If you want a hotel that is easy to find and close to the train station this is a good spot. If you want a location that is close to the action, this is your place. Red Light is a few blocks over, great restaurants are all over and the zoo, museums, and bar areas are all in walking distance.... More
