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.

We stayed here for 2 nights in May whilst touring Europe. The Rooms in the hotel were very nice, modern and clean, however the reception area and hallways weren't great. They were in the process of refurbishing some areas, including the main entrance/reception which was very awkward as works were carried out whilst we were staying. It would have been... More

I stayed at The Golden Bear for three days this week. What happened to it? I stayed two years ago with my partner and we had a great time. A lovely homely hotel, great staff and a room with fridge, proper double bed, tea/coffee making facilities and a great ensuite shower/toilet. Lots of information for the gay visitor was readily...

Great location (15 mins from some of the main attractions in the city), reasonably priced, clean, shared bathroom was clean too... Stairs a little narrow and twisty after a few beers! Emailed a request which was dealt with superbly...would use again!

Quentin Hotel (No longer Golden Bear) Prior to renovation, I stayed here two years ago (see old review) when it was called the Golden Bear, which is now the Quentin (apparently there are now 4 in Amsterdam so I would stay clear of any of them which you will see why after you read this). This place is now a... More

Me and my travelling companion stayed there last night and had booked a private room for a very cheap price, something like €30 each. We were so happy to be greeted by the friendly young lady at reception who helped us with everything and explained we had been given an even better room. I'm not sure why! We had a... More

I booked a long weekend with friends at the Golden Bear, where I have stayed many times previously, on 31 March 2014. This was done through Booking.com and is the subject of a complaint to them. At no time during the process was I told that The Golden Bear had been bought by the Quentin Group in October 2013 and... More
