“Clean and tidy but basic and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

4 of us stayed this weekend and as it was a totally unplanned trip we turned up at 10.30am to see if they had a room for one night and they did not but they had a triple room and would put a mattress on the floor and as its 2 night minimum it cost 280 euros. The room was very small but we managed it, and it was clean and tidy although for the prices they charge they could supply better mattresses and bedding but all in all the only gripe is really that its not value for money but in a fantastic location so just dont expect much.

Hotel is what it says. Rooms are small but clean friendly staff and very helpfull. If you book this expecting gloss then don't. It's somewhere to sleep n wash. Simple. Excellent location right by the grasshopper. Which is no longer a coffeeshop

Its a low star rated hotel in the red light district of Amsterdam so anybody slating this hotel is obviously an idiot for booking it and expecting 5 star. Its cheap and basic, dont expect red carpets and roses because you wont get it.

If you go to amsterdam for the same reason most people do then this hotel is fine so ignore the busy people

Room Tip: Ask for a street view

This hotel is very basic, rooms are tiny and poorly furnished, beds are very uncomfortable and bedding didnt seem very clean,the bathroom stinks of raw sewage, the stairs are very steep and quite unsafe if u have had a few drinks or need to carry a suitcase up them, the location is excellent for all the local attractions n nightlife,the staff were very friendly and helpful but we wouldnt stay here again

The hotel reminds an anthill, with very steep stairs, not that friendly staff and terrible rooms.
It could be Ok for a hostel, but it costs unreal for the lack of services it provides. It also has a terrible smell of weed in the room and scary showers.
If you have a possibility - take a hotel a bit far from the center of Amsterdam.

The staff were nice enough, they looked quite scary but gave us a room upgrade which I thought was quite good of them. The stairs are very steep so do be careful! Rooms are very small and in need of some TLC as walls have been drawn on etc. There is a smell of smoke and hash in the rooms and in the hallways but that's what's to be expected in Amsterdam. One thing that really annoyed me was that there was only one socket. And when straightening your hair etc. You need to either guess or stand on a chair as the only mirror is quite high up on the bathroom wall. All in all the hotel is in an ideal location and if you are not planning on staying in your hotel for long periods of time then I would recommend it.

First I will say great location. Thats the good comments done.
We were greeted by angry staff who told us we couldnt have the double room we had booked until the second night, after arguing telling us we had booked a twin.
We arrived in our twin room, 2 single beds with disgusting old blankets and smelling as though someone had just smoked a joint in it. One power point in the room. Stains of god knows what on the walls and 2 very small old discoloured towels.
Left the room for a night out and when we returned discovered one of the pillows had chewing gum all over the underside of it. Showed reception in the morning and no comment on it at all. Gave us our new slightly bigger room with a double bed, which had single sheets on it! Anyway to sum up this place is a hostel at best, an expensive one at that. Stay here if you plan on going with the boys and being out of your mind by the time you need sleep, otherwise avoid at all costs. The place is disgusting.
