“Nice option and ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The best thing about Abba is its location. Everything is close and very easy to get by. From the airport, main stations or bus stop, you'll find it easily. Our room was big, clean and comfy, just as we expected it to be. Staff are nice and will help you whenever you need. BF is included, but there were too many people cramped in the BF area. Amsterdam is an expensive city and finding budget accommodation might not be easy. If you're looking for better rates, good location and wants to have a more outside stay, I'd definitely recommend Abba.
PS.: Get ready to climb up some steep stairs with your bags, as there are no lifts.

Easy access if your coming from the airport or train station. Directions are very simple.
Not recommended to travellers with lots of baggage.
Expect a couple flights of stairs to your room.
Very safe neighbourhood with nearby cafes and bars and a cheap supermarket directly below the hotel.
Great on a budget.
Basic room with private bathroom was unbelievably good value for money.
Transport from right outside the hotel.
Breakfast was brilliant. Having this included in the room price was the selling point for me. Most other hotels charged an extra £6-10 euros per night on top.

Good size rooms for price and decent wifi. Staff are friendly and very unobtrusive, can smoke in the rooms and in a good spot to walk to the city centre. Stoners with a low budget, this is your hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2014

Friends and I stayed her for 5 nights. The receptionist was so helpful, breakfast was fine, hotel is in a good location and not too badly priced. We enjoyed our stay here. The stairs were a bit lethal, so no good if you have an injury etc.. Rooms were decently sized and relatively clean. We had a private bathroom and the shower went hot/cold quite a bit but our friends shared a bathroom and had no issues.

Room Tip: The trams were quite loud, if you want a quieter room try and get a room facing away from the main s...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014

Hotel is just opposite of the tram stop which I find it very awesome. It is near to the Leidsplein area, the tourist area of Amsterdam. Centraal station is just minutes away and so does the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum respectively. They have a daily breakfast which is a very good point of this budget hotel. Staff were very attentive and kind. There is a grocery store just downstairs and some known restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Spending a 35-euro per night per person on an autumn season is really a real deal already for us given the comfort, the space of the room, and of course the location. I give them 4 stars for that.

Room Tip: always close the windows during night time as you will hear the tram noisy sound.
