The area around the Botanical Gardens is beautiful. A short 5-10 minute walk to clubs that are open all night 7 days a week, and the streets around Hotel Hortus have a modern, youthful atmosphere.
A hostel-esque sort of hotel, Pension Hortus has a great social area downstairs with somewhere to smoke and a pool table.
The hotel offers a good B&B service, although for a little more money there are lots of good breakfast cafés and restaurants in this upmarket area.
Compared to the two other locations in Amsterdam I have stayed in, Hotel Hortus is a cut above for a similar price.
The Artis Zoo - which is 30 seconds from the front door - is an impressive tourist attraction with entrance priced at just €19.99. Well worth a visit.
The only problem was noise from other guests who kept partying on through until 6am, but for most of Hortus' clientele this should be no issue.
Recommended for a short stay in Amsterdam to enjoy the nightlife with some friends.
