“Great option for who wants to be near the city center and doesn't care much with facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We know this is a 1 star hotel so one can never compare it to 3, 4 or 5. Still, somethings are unacceptable like: no cleaning of rooms (I suppose there isn't enough staff to do all tasks so they just push the sheets of the beds up and I want to believe they change towels) and reception does no effort to make any changes (they just say "no" or "not possible bye"). Rooms close to the road are noisy because of the tram line (this is the first time I complain about the noise outsider in a low star hotel).
However, and because it is a 1 star hotel it is the best option for who just wants a place to sleep, take a shower and be close to everything. This hotel has a lot of advantages such as:
- Excellent location: tram stop is just on the exit/entrance of the hotel and takes you to the city center, dam, central station, flower market, and is near Rijks and Van Gogh's museum. You can go everywhere from there (even by foot). It's also near many restaurants, convenience stores, banks and grossery shops;
- Breakfast: good alternatives and good food for a 1 star hotel (even for many 3 stars hotels);
- Free wi-fi: very fast and all over the hotel (even in the tram stop you can have a bit of wireless);
- No curfew (you always keep the keys and can go into your room).

It's not a hotel for romance or for old or handycaped people. This is the right hotel for who wants to stay a few days, don't want to spend much and doesn't care with confort.

This means, for bing a hotel near the center, good location with cheap/reasonable price, so that get a double room. Shared bathroom. A non well function shower and a tourture beds. The worst bed I've ever slept, but I don't mind. It was clean once a day. A bit noise on weekend because there are rude young tourist. Get used to.

Hotel lets you store you luggage before check in, which is great, breakfast is included. Lots of information on the local area if you need it. Super comfy bed, clean bathroom and wifi. Very close to local transport and night life. Recommend.
