I had nothing to do with this booking as it was organised by my best man for my stag night, however I feel compelled to review it for being so poor. Upon arrival the girl behind the counter welcomed us and explained everything that needed to be explained - not once did she crack a smile and was quite uninterested... More

This hotel is located perfectly to explore the city. The hotel itself, although a little tired in places , is fine - decent size bathrooms!!!!! Our stay ( 5 rooms booked) was marred by 'electric iron gate'. The iron supplied by the hotel kept blowing the fuse. The staff member that evening was very unhelpful sorting the issue out. The...

This hotel has a great location, which is the best feature with the hotel. We booked a deluxe room. It didn't have any deluxe-like features besides the size of the room, that was good. I have to warn girls with long hair about staying here! The shower had absolutely no preassure, I wouldn't have had any chance of getting shampoo... More

This hotel is in a fantastic central location - we walked to everything we wanted to see. The renovated old building has it's quirks (like a staircase I wouldn't want to navigate after a few drinks!) but the rooms are well appointed - if a bit tiny. One disappointment was discovering that they King Bed was actually two separately made... More

So.... me and the better half decided to travel around Europe and she actually trusted me to book our accomodation. Our first stop was Amsterdam, we didn't want to pay too much but we didn't want to be in a hovel. I had a look around and I eventually found the Quentin Golden Bear. We arrived and the first thing...

Went with 2 mates, great location in city centre, coffee shop next door, restaurants, shopping, attractions. Clean, comfortable beds and modern bathroom, TV, fridge. Staff where nice enough, cleaned room daily. I go to Amsterdam yearly and I would go back here, for the price it is a great hotel.

My husband and I had a room on the top floor with an ok view of others' backyards. It was very basic and provided all necessities but we spent most of our time out exploring so that wasn't a problem. The stairs are very steep and I wouldn't recommend it to older folks or those with weaker knees. The staff... More
