“Average hotel, PERFECT location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

I stayed here for 2 nights on the 18th January for my best friends 21st birthday.
The staff were friendly.
The rooms were extremely dated the beds weren't really comfortable but it was clean.
It got quite noisy at night time as it is generally a hotel for younger people I thought.
However, I've been to Amsterdam 3 times and this is the best located hotel you could stay in!!!!

Stayed January 2014, traveled with friends

In general its not bad hotel. Especially, employees in there are so friendly and helpfull. Location is excellent. You can go by a walk in everywhere. There was a little bit noise because of the walls. Walls are so thin.

This hotel has a good location, in to the old Amsterdam, you can reach the most interesting points easily. the hotel is OK not so bad. it s near to who is interested with red light district. you can reach bars easily. i don't mind to go again.

Room Tip: Better to choose a room not in the ground flour.

Very central hotel. % minutes walk from Centraal Station. Very basic. Beds were a bit hard but the room was clean and en suite. Ideal for a short stay,. Reception was 24 hour and access to rooms was secure. Good o know as it is so central.

Room Tip: Good location for a short stay.

My four friends and I of Irish decent spent one single night in this establishment. We were fatigued from a long search for a room for the night when we spotted what appeared to be a nice hotel. We walked in and were greeted by a nice man who decided from the moment he saw us to rip us off.

The 5 of us were crammed into a 2 person cage and charged 56 euro per person. we did not receive the mattresses we were promised.
It was dirty, smelly, cramped and the staff were quite unhelpful.
our bathroom was basically a swimming pool and our towels were smaller than the average tea towel.

The workers were shrewd businessmen who prey on backpackers and men with silly a-frame snapbacks small/medium.

all in all, dont stay in this hole.

yours sincerely,

Bryant P. Castlin

Any lads going for the weekend whos hardly going to be in the room and wanting a perfect location, this is for you.
Anybody else, not so much.
As iv said the location is the best in Amsterdam for nightlife/food places, with the grasshopper bar/coffee shop litrally a stone through away and the red light district just a 2 minute walk.
But the hotel in general was poor..
We were about 5 floors up, the hotel never had any way of getting up apart from a very steap set of stairs.
The bedroom was tiny but still clean enough, had no space to hang your clothes apart from a small coat rail but its also tiny.
The pillows and blankets were crap, but as small as the bathroom was, it was also very clean.
I went here with my girlfriend in June 2013, and I wouldnt take her back to the hotel BUT if I was going with friends who wanted sonewhere near everything Amsterdam has to offer then this would be my first choice.

Room Tip: If you have the choice, try get a room as close to the ground floor as possible, unbelievably steap.

Warning - if you have 20kg suitcases and your room is located on the top floor (yes and yes for our experience) be prepared for the one of the most strenuous workouts of your life.

The rooms are very small and absolutely bare minimum basic, however the location is so good that those things don't really matter. If you don't mind 'roughing it' for the sake of being in an excellent location, I would recommend. Not too badly priced (in comparison to other places to stay in the area) and the staff were ok.
