“Ok for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I agree with the majority of the views on here, however for a cheap-ish stay it was good value. We paid £170 for 2 people for 2 nights.

Pros:

1: Easily accessible from centre. Numbers 9, 14 tram from Dam to Artis.
2: Very friendly helpful staff.
3: Comfy beds.
4: Good wifi
5: Free very tasty coffee in reception


Cons

1: Pillows bit too soft
2: Bathroom smells damp and you can smell sewage.
3: Duvets bit too heavy for summer. Room gets very hot.
4: Bitten by Mosquitos, you have to have the window open as its so hot in room!

We would stay here again. It's what you would expect of 3*. You don't come away to sit in your room all day. As a base its fine!

Well there were building works going on right next to the hotel so our sleeping pattern was heavily disrupted. It would have been nice if we were informed beforehand and we should have complained but I honk we were too British to complain. It was quite average but the staff were lovely. The hotel rooms are very tiny, my friend and I asked for two twin beds and were given two single beds. So be warned! But it's 15/20 mins to the city centre and is a lovely walk to the city centre.

We only needed a hotel for a base, so really can't complain, we were ground floor corner room with 2 huge windows, beds comfy and all very clean.

Bathroom was internal facing and had a drain smell, but this did not deter our stay.

Free coffee in reception a great touch too. Tram stop just a 100m walk away, you get trams 14 and 9 to and from Dam square etc.

Nice cafe next door called coffee and art which did a spot on English breakfast, not many places do it.

Very basic room, nothing to flash was a bit upset they never told us about the construction site mess next door , and the room did have a interesting smell, the shower is very poor , no fridge or anything , so basically very budget accommodation. 15euro per person for breakfast was steep for what was on offer, especially with so many cafes close that had better fair for less. And the toilets, wait till you see them, perfectly situated so that you morning business can rest and stare up at you. Very interesting, however bed was comfortable , I didn't particularly like the two singles pushed together however that seems quiet common in Europe when you ask for a queen. No aircon, however fan provided. The windows don't open far so it was stifling hot even with fan . Also expect to be woken by people stamping up the hall and slamming doors as everything echoes as we could hear everything people in neighbouring rooms spoke. However in saying this , was a great location.

Booked this hotel for a friends birthday and was disappointed upon arrival to find it to be attached to a building site, and each time work was being done the whole building would shake which is very poor.
The location is good, opposite the zoo which is a must to see and was the best 20euro spent!
The room was very small and had everything you needed. Although we're sure this hotel has got bed bugs as we both are covered in bites and not sure as to why as there wasn't any insects out and about during our time.
From the airport you can get the train to central station this only cost 5.20 and then to get to the hotel you can purchase a team ticket for however long you are there for. We got one for 4 days and only cost 21euro. You then need to get the number 9 tram and get off at artis then you will see the hotel on your right handside about 100m.
Amsterdam itself is beautiful, with plenty to do. A visit to the ice bar is a must! And well worth the £11 I pre paid before going and you get 3 free drinks.
You will not be too short of places to eat and drink! Far to say we tried most of them! All in all a great trip, shame about the hotel. It was sold as a 4* but I would only put it at a 3 and that's being generous.
Oh you have to pay a 50euro deposit....which I wasn't told about and then when you get it back they charge you for tax so you only get 36euro.

Dear Cath3089,

thank you for writing your review over here.
I am sorry to read that your experience in our hotel did not match with your expectations.
The deposit of € 50,- is something we work with for 3 years now and which is communicated to all the sites and touroperators we work with. I cannot tell how you booked your reservation but I would like to know so I can check and inform them. I am sorry that this wasn' t well communicated.
In the hotel we sometimes do have mosquitos, if we have had any bugs, we would have been informed by our housekeeper since they are very keen on it. We did not receive any report from you during your stay, did you inform our receptionist?
I do hope we may welcome you once more.
Kind regards, Hans
