The hotel is alright. Not terrible but certainly not great. Upon checking in we asked the pleasant Indian woman working the desk if she had any recommendations for places to eat near by, she had none. Literally she said she didn't know what was around but we could "probably find something." Um, ok. Then we asked if there was anything... More

The Hotel Flipper is a very small, poorly appointed hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not worth the 6 Euros they charged. The orange juice was in one of those large coolers that were popular 50 years ago and it was never turned on - I swear the OJ was fermenting in there. There are... More

This is accually a great place to stay, it is away from the city centre but it only takes 10min with the tram to get there. We had a small room but it was pretty cheap so we had nothing to complain about. A great place to stay when you won't be spending all your time at the hotel and... More

Overall this was a decent hotel, probably deserving a solid 3/5 rating. The good points: -The room was clean, with the cleaning lady being very helpful for our particularly untidy group! -The reception staff were especially helpful in pointing out the sights of Amsterdam, with their spoken English excellent. This is probably the biggest positive of the hotel. -The room... More

Cheap but it was clean and the bed was comfy so can't complain :) only negatives I'd say was having to go up those extremely steep stairs! And having to go up and down them during the night for the toilet was such a chore. Also it's not really in the city centre, we paid for tram for the time... More

Clean room, super helpful staff at reception. Tram at the top of the main road takes you to Centraal in half an hour. Only qualm is that it can get quite noisy if you are next to a big dorm but that's to be expected in hostel. Would recommend.

Went with a group of 7 girls for a 3 night stay weekend away. The second last day there was A MOUSE IN OUR ROOM!! We told the receptionist who either spoke poor English or was aware of similar situations in the past as he was completely unnerved and unsurprised by the ordeal. He filled up the hole in the...
