I too experienced some of what the negative reviews stated. The room and bathroom were small. Almost painfully small for my wife and me. The very small, very old TV never had a signal, not that I was there to watch TV, but it would have been nice to watch something when we got in. I had no issues from... More

The hotel is a good value for money. The hotel situated 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam station and was very easy to find. We were required to pay there and not up front. The room was small but comfortable with two single beds. We had big windows facing the main street which was very nice. The room has heating and... More

Our arrival here rang several alarm bells immediately, 1) badly stained carpet in reception 2) a large notice at eye-level saying 'no refunds' 3) a surly, unfriendly, unhelpful, rude (almost hostile) young man behind the desk (the evening of Saturday 11th April to be precise). Note: we had to pay in advance rather than on checking out - it was... More

We were travelling with our 1,5 year-old and had requested a baby bed. The baby bed was broken and according to the staff it had been so for quite a while. The heating was not working properly, tv as well did not work and the remote did not have any batteries. Hair dryer didn´t work and they had only one... More

I booked for myself and my partner for 6 days in Amsterdam, whilst I knew it was budget, it was not the cheapest hotel in Amsterdam, so my expectations were for a clean place to sleep and shower and go see the sights of Amsterdam. We got to the hotel by tram with ease, the “reception” area was very cramped... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
