“Nice location but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

The Good: 1. The manager and other staff members (all men) are very nice and welcoming. They point you in the right direction and are always willing to help. They carry your bags up and down the steep stairs so you don't have to worry about dealing with that. 2. The location is a great one, just down the street from Anne Frank's house and within walking distance of the main downtown area, including the red light district. 3. There are also many restaurants nearby, which is nice and convenient.
The Bad: 1. The rooms are extremely tiny (even by European standards), and there is hardly room for two bags! 2. The bathroom smells and you get the distinct impression that they don't do a good job of cleaning. What was worse, there was a piece of exposed plastic pipe which ran from the toilet bowl and there was a constant smell associated with that. Just awful! 3. If you like to sleep in quiet, do not request a room with a balcony! There will be nonstop noise which you cannot keep out. 4. Breakfast is included, which was nice, until I saw the man (yes another man) in charge of setting up the breakfast holding the croissants with his bare hands and delivering them to a basket!
Would I say there again? Absolutely not! The smell of the bathroom, and the unhygienic goings on in the kitchen just turned me way off! This place is like a cheap motel!!

myself and my wife stayed at The Nadia Hotel for two nights. It is what it is. Small rooms yes, but you have what you need and it appeared clean. Staff are extremely friendly and willing to please, nothing is too much trouble and we left feeling as if we had received good value.

The staff was very helpful and friendly! I have never been that kind of friendly hotel! Rooms were quite small, but it doesn´t matter, if you don´t spend your holiday on hotel room. Breakfast was quite poor, but I think it was ok. There were bread, cheese, croissants, coffee, tea and orange juise. If you are quite bad shape, the stars could be hard, because there is a lot of steep stairs. But you can take these as a good training! And location was very excellent to walk everywhere. Anyway I really can recommended this hotel!

My fiancé and I stayed here January 2014 for 4 nights after staying 4 nights in Paris. The hotel was a short 20 minute ride from the airport. We arrived at noon before check-in, we were given sodas and only had to wait 5 minutes for our room to be ready. The flight of stairs is definitely steep but our two heavy suitcases were taken up the stairs for us so that was the end of that. Our room was small but had all the necessities - our balcony was great to sit and people watch while drinking hot chocolate. You cannot beat the price you pay here. The location is absolutely superb. We didn't have to take a taxi once - walking distance to all the local attractions. Minutes away from the Anne Frank Museum which was an amazing experience. All in all, would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here in November and when I mentioned it was my boyfriends birthday we were instantly upgraded, The rooms are TINY! (even with an upgrade) But the rooms have everything you need, comfy bed, TV with a few English channels, private bathroom, kettle, very clean and A the small Balcony was an added bonus.
Location is good, about a five minute walk into Dam Square and Staff are friendly what more do you need! Cant believe how much I paid for this hotel, it was so cheap considering the location, I would defiantly stay here again.

perfect location.---walk to everything. Friendly helpful staff. Small room but to be expected for the area and we had a good sized balcony overlooking canal. nice breakfast with excellent coffee. Those stairs are steep, but staff will carry your suitcases.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony for extra room and comfort---though may be noisy.
