“Great location but dirty and a bit shabby.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

The location is the absolute best part about this place. Vondelpark is an amazing park! It was so cool to open the front door and be right there. You're close to the musems, shopping, and in walking distance to other sights like Dam Square and the Anne Frank House (a must see in your lifetime!!!).

We stayed on the 3rd floor. The apartment was spacious and full of light. The fellow that met us to show us in was welcoming. Unfortunately though, it wasn't very well maintained nor clean. I wanted to stay there because it has a kitchen and I like to cook for myself while traveling. I was dissapointed to find that neither the kitchen nor appliances were very clean. While walking barefoot in the kitchen, our feet slightly stuck to the floor. Most of the dishes and utensils had to be re-cleaned before we even used them. The stove may work but the lighter was broken so we couldn't even fry up some tofu for ourselves late one night.

The bathroom fixtures were old and kinda falling apart (shower pole thingy in dire need of being replaced). The toilet was always refilling itself. The doorknob fell off one of the doors in the apartment. Many of the surfaces were a bit dusty. Some of the windows didn't open. The tv's are huge, clunky faux-wood-sided things with terrible resolution. The couches were showing a lot a lot of wear and tear.

Sad that there's more... but the breakfast part of this B&B was a bit weird too. The host guy said there was food for us for breakfast. It consisted of cheese, meat, bread in the freezer, orange juice, milk and a bunch of stuff that was already used by previous guests! Halfway used jam, halfway used margarine and butter, already opened museli, ... etc. It was kinda gross. He couldn't get little serving-size butters or jams?

For the price, I'm not sure if it's worth it. I would not stay there again. Actually, there are other accommodations around the park and even on that same block that may be better.
