“Enjoyed our stay very much!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We discovered the Alp Hotel through booking.com and reserved our room less than an hour before arriving; I selected this lodging based on what I felt was a reasonable rate, the convenient location, free WiFi, free breakfast & numerous positive reviews on Booking.com & TripAdvisor.

Even though we arrived about about 40 minutes after making the reservation & 2 hours before normal check in time the associate at the front desk was very organized with our information and more than happy to accommodate us with an early check in.

Immediately after checking you in you are are offered to sit outside at one of the tables in the walled garden patio and enjoy a "Welcome Beverage" which was either a soft drink, a cold glass of beer or wine; we selected a beer for me (Heineken) and white wine for my wife. This is a very nice touch and we appreciated a chance to relax and chat in the peaceful setting the hotel provides.

After giving us 10 minute or so to relax the associate (Onur Alp) returned to provide us information about the hotel, the immediate areas and to answer any questions we had. Onur was wonderful at making you feel welcomed & appreciated for choosing to stay with them.

We would come to learn over the next three days that all of the staff associated with this hotel were extremely friendly and always willing to be of service however they could

Our rooms (we had two over the two nights we stayed there) were very clean, comfortable & very adequate in size for the two of us.

The first one had a nice balcony that overlooked the walled garden patio area in the back, the second was larger and had a sink & mini refrigerator, this one was street side so you were able to watch the action and had a nice view of the wonderful old buildings up and down the street.

We were very pleased with both of our accommodations & personally I found the age/history of the building very charming. I would have to say though both of our rooms were on the "first floor" (there are no street level rooms) so we did not have to carry our bags up to the higher floors, which would have been a real workout I'm sure.

We would hot hesitate and look forward to staying at the Alp Hotel on future visits and highly recommend the lodging to anyone traveling to Amsterdam - I am certain you would not be disappointed.

We took tram 13 from Centraal station and arrived on De Clercqstraat st. but didn't see the hotel initially. After exiting the tram walk across the street...stay to your right and the hotel is in the next block right past the corner bookstore, nail shop and clothing store. The hotel registrar offered us something to drink and a cookie with our cappuccinos. We sat in the courtyard while he gave us a map and some suggestions for enjoying the city. I had a piece of fruit and noticed the two computers provided by the hotel for internet access were occupied by two young adults. If you're in excellent shape, then you'll have no difficulty negotiating the steep stairs at this hotel. We were grateful for the exercise, but grew a little tired of having to climb the stairs. This hotel capped off a three week vacation traveling around Europe and of all the hotels we stayed in, this was far from what we were accustomed to, given the size of the room. The hotel was reasonably priced, and the amenities nice. We wanted to be centrally located, have internet access, free breakfast, and a shuttle to the airport. Most of the reviews were excellent, but wished I'd been more attentive to the comments regarding the size of the rooms. Otherwise, this hotel satisfied all our conditions at a great price with the exception that the shuttle is a taxi ride for 39 euros. The 2nd floor room facing the street was extremely cramped but clean, had a chocolate and an apple on each bed and no way to cool the room with the exception of the window with no screen, so we propped it open as best we could and still felt the heat and stuffiness even though the window was open as far as we could get it to open. You will have to deal with the noise on the street and earplugs are provided. Both of us are "city" dwellers and the outside noise was not a problem for us. When we asked about a larger room, the receptionist gave us a key to a fourth floor room also facing the street that was a tiny bit more spacious for 20 euros more, but given the exertion on the stairs we opted to stay where we were. The internet worked fine, and breakfast was good with plenty of choices. Meats, cheeses, yogurts, breads, jams, orange juice, cereals, boiled eggs, a fruit salad and a green salad too for the health conscious. The Anne Frank house is within walking distance and strolling along the street was fun too. I am doubtful I would stay here again in the summer, unless I am traveling alone and it is the only room available. All things considered it is a good hotel if you are physically fit and don't mind the small space.

The hotel is in excellent location, tram no 13 from central station stops virtually outside the hotel. The fact that its a little further out of the city central doesnt matter as the trams are frequent and its the area is not touristy. Its great to go the restaurants and bars in the area which are all used by locals.
We stayed in the Jordaan room(with balcony) which is on the 1st floor with garden view. It was good size and very comfortable, we were very pleased we had booked room with balcony as it was very hot during our 3 night stay, but nice seating area in courtyard at the back. We were warmly greeted and offered a drink when we arrived at 10.30pm which was a very welcome.
The breakfast was good, the staff were very friendly and very helpful recommending restaurants, etc in the area. As others have said the stairs are steep and there is no lift. We will certainly consider stay here again next time we are in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter and would recommend balcony
