“No possibility of check-in after 8pm”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I tried to get a reservation at this place by emailing them, they reply to emails within a day so that's good. But there's no possibility of check-in after 8pm (not even if you announce it prior to arrival). What more can I say? I've travelled quite a lot and as far as I experienced check-in times have never been limited at any hotel (be it a scary hostel somewhere in a dark alley in South America or a fancy Sheraton/Hilton/etc).

This is a small hotel but fantastic. If you are looking for a place to spend a quiet holidays without spending much money this is the ideal place.
The living room is very comfortable and the breakfast is excellent.

Having last stayed here in September 2012 i was very pleased with the renovations that have been in progress this winter. The rooms have all been beautifully decorated with the dinning room and kitchen having had a major overhaul. All in all a very very nice return to one of my favourite hotels.

Me, my partner, my sister and a friend stayed here whilst on a trip to Amsterdam!!!! My sister being a student couldn't afford luxury hotel so we went for something cheaper! What a big mistake!! The people looking after the place were crazy, the stairs really really steep.. Bedrooms I wouldn't expect a dog to sleep in and our window was facing a brick wall! In my sisters and friends room there were mouse traps and poison!!! We didn't stay for breakfast and judging by the other reviews I'm glad we didn't!!! Late at night there was sounds of drunken people shouting outside ... Only to be the people looking after the place!!!!

stayed there nov 2012, brilliant location, staff were amazing made me and my boyfriend feel at home, told us all about amsterdam best places to go, a lovely chilled atomsphere, communal room kinda like a kitchen long table for everyone to sit at me and my partner ( from wales) sitting chattting to a group of italians, spanish couple all sharing stories. kim makes amazing meatballs!! bathroom was spotless, they were improving the hotel at the time but was no problem we were out all day exploring when the builders were working they would be finished by the time we got back and it was nice to see what it looked like when we arrived to what it was like when we left, it was no bother to us. cant wait to go back and see what its like now! yes stairs are steep but most of them are in amsterdam! room was spotless, some things are dated but they havent had the hotel for long and they are constandly updating it. bed linen lovely and clean so what more can you ask for. i am really fussy with hotels cleanliness and all that but this one was honestly one of the best hotels ive ever been to for everything, location staff cleanliness, price! we are definately going back there.

Room Tip: room number 1 has the least steep steps!!

I totally understand every complaint one could have about this place excluding one point - why for god´s sake would you book budget hotel stating it has no bathroom in the room, no TVs or any other ,,luxuries" if that´s exatly what you would miss during your stay..? Yes, for the price of this hotel you could probably get much much more somewhere in Spain or Greece. But this is Amsterdam and it´s pretty expensive so what you get in Liberty for your money is after all quite adequate and even comfy. We´re young married couple, came for fun but definitely not for some cheering through the night with strangers. Even though in Liberty you cannot avoid contact with strangers, it´s so small you won´t really be in some big noisy collective and most interactions are actually quite funny and cute in here - like having a wonderful breakfast together prepared by very kind staff/owner, who is the heart and soul of this tiny place. Our room was in the highest floor and yes, the stair is terribly steep :D But we found it ,,an important and funny part of this experience" after all and never had any accident or difficulties with it. Our room was tiny, no view at all, no wardrobes just two beds pulled together, two night tables, one chair and the most important- sink and bin for the trash ;) well, everywhere you look there´s something begging to be repaired or renovated but there really is no dirt at all, we had a new floor and I guess matresess were quite new too and through all our worries - we slept like a babies in here and were never disturbed by anyone or anything. THE MAIN HIGHLIGHTS of this place are: affordable price for this expensive city and excelent location - you are really in the very center and pretty close to anything you might need. For a few days/ nights in the city for young people this hotel is just perfect! !

Room Tip: I don´t really think you have a chance to choose a lot in here as there are only few rooms and they...
