“there was a mouse running round our room..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Im not your typical brit that moans and says this and that, i read the reviews and thought ill make my own decision, first impression its run down but in the heart of the red light district next to a gay bar.

room was ok was a bit clean the bed sheets were stained.

we were woken up to scurrying in the middle of the night to find a mouse trying to get in my suitcase, after my mother screaming and me having to go down stairs to report it the receptionist moved us rooms but didn't care.

Ive stayed in 2 stars 1 stars hostels, gone camping and NOTHING has ever given me that experience pure filthy AVOID at all costs!

If i could give it a zero mark it would get a zero.

the only positive was the irish bar attached.

The hotel very basic..breakfast next door in the irish bar was typical english apart from no sausage.the location was perfect for anyone wanting the full amsterdam experience. The red light district 3 minute walk and dam square about 10mins. All the museums are right at your door step prity much. I recommend visiting artis zoo brilliant 20minute walk ask for directions the dutch people very friendly and always willing to help. As u arrive in airport I would recommend getting train to Amsterdam.the train station is under the airport. its only 4 euro and hotel 2mins walk from train station. Me and husband had a fantastic time. Watch out for anyone trying to give u a lift in a taxi its expensive about 60 euros. Unfortunately this happened to us. P.s Amsterdam is very very expensive for everything

I stayed at this hotel in august 2013 for 2 nights. Great hotel, perfect view – canal view.. And very nice breakfast – at the canal. It’s situated near the Central Station, so it’s very easy to find and close to most of the tourist attractions. All in all, if I will visit Amsterdam ever again, I will choose to be accommodated here one more time.

I stay in hotels weekly with my work (never anything expensive) and I go on roughly 4 holidays abroad a year. I have NEVER been in a hotel more disgusting & unclean than this place.
The trip was a present from our family, and we were booked in for 3 nights. We arrived late on the Friday, so after being greeted by a half eaten take-away in the middle of the lobby and a receptionist who was more interested in the 'date' she had standing waiting, we went to our ridiculously small double room - that cost extra, where the bed was pushed up against the wall and didn't even have a lamp.
The room was disgusting and looked like it had not been cleaned for months. There was mascara on the pillows, dirt all over the walls, small colony of insects growing around the aircon (that didnt work) The shower would have left me more dirty after being in it.
I spent the night sleeping on top of the bed, wrapped in the clothes I had travelled in for fear of catching bedbugs. I was also woken every 30 mins or so by doors slamming and various parties in rooms.
The reception was a joke, and couldn't be more unhelpful if there was no-one there. The hotel also had the feel of a very bad backpackers hostel and attracts a similar clientele. Fine if you've paid hostel rates but this hotel costs more per nights than some 5 star hotels i've stayed in.
The following morning we paid to go and stay in another hotel for the remaining 2 nights.
My only advice with this hotel is DONT GO!!! If I could give it a minus rating I would.

Stayed here in March of this year and in all fairness this hotel probably has one of the best locations you could wish for. On a quiet pedestrianized canal, so no cars etc to worry about.
The prices can be hit & miss, but are mostly fair enough for the location, though I would class this more as a very good 2 star hotel, and not as a 3 star hotel. This simply because the rooms are small and somewhat outdated.

Quaint view on the water from the pub Molly Malone's next door, which is also where the breakfast is served. The breakfast was great and set me up for a day of work and pleasure.

Would stay again, if only to have another few drinks on the terrace outside and see the boats pass by in the afternoon sun!

Our initial impressions were not good, and the room was enclosed with internal windows. However we soon discovered the positive aspects of this hotel:

1. Brilliant location in the city centre.
2. An excellent breakfast served in the adjoining pub.
3. A hot shower that blasts out hot water.
4. Multi-national digital TV.
5. A spacious room that was reasonably clean.

Excellent value as a 2 star hotel, a bit too tired to be graded 3 star.

This hotel is in a great location and only a 5 minute walk from central station. But it took us 2 hours to actually find the hotel because the locals didn't seem to know where the hotel was either as the address on the internet was incorrect. For 3 star we found our rooms pretty basic but the rooms were clean and the breakfast was lovely so that made up for it. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. However their website is a little deceiving. They show pictures of luxurious rooms but these are only the doubles, single rooms are not like these. Overall. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend to others.
