The Hotel Washington has to be an excellent bargain of a purchase. Firstly don't get me wrong - the hotel is over 30 years old and the furnishing and decor do not seem to have been updated once.
There were three of us checking at the hotel and we were lucky to be given the basement floor. This meant that as the floor only had two rooms we had exclusive use of the entire floor. as such it felt more like a two bedroom flat rather than a hotel. The bathroom was communal for the two rooms and was clean. The only downside was the very very very steep staircase. Getting luggage up and down can be quite a task!!!!
In terms of service, I have to give special mention to Claudia who did an outstanding job. Not only did she administer the breakfast but also gave us invaluable tourist advice she also allocated the rooms and was very friendly. The directions she gave from the airport to the hotel were very straight forward.
The location of the hotel is about 35 mins from the airport and 25 mins from Amstel bus station. The 24 hour tram pass was perfect for our needs. "The famous Amsterdam Street market" is only one stop from the hotel (no 16 or 24).
Overall a very good choice for anyone travelling on a budget.
