If you are looking for luxury accommodation in Amsterdam, this is not for you. If you are looking for a base in the centre of the city, close to Central Station and are not too fussed about having the most comfortable beds, added extras in the rooms and are happy to share toilets / showers then this could be the...

Located in the center of Amsterdam: perfect! There was litterally a big hole in the boxspring underbed. That made it impossible to sleep on. We have put the thin covermatras on the floor to sleep on. We also advise to use earplugs. The breakfast was fine.

We just visited for a couple of drinks, nice big tables, comfy seats, good drinks which are not too extortionate and a big screen which was showing football (zzzz) when we were there. It seemed slightly odd that people were checking in to the rooms at the bar, but not a major problem. There was a nice affectionate cat wandering... More

stayed for 3 nights and met all our expectations. The service was very friendly and professional. Good selection at the bar and clean tidy room. The only food available is breakfast but with a wide selection of resturants within seconds not an issue. This not our first or last visit..

The hotel is just across the road from central station, the twin room was small and basic but clean. We only needed somewhere to sleep and the location was perfect for walking around the centre of the red light district.
