“rundown 1-star a place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

this is a 1 start hotel rather than 3, well you could stay here overnight but do not expect a conformable room or reasonable breakfast. Although park with all the multiple resto's and cafe's is 5 min walk away, would not recommend the place

Room Tip: stay away if you have a choice

No towels in the bathroom. The telephone didn't work, we couldn't even contact reception. The bathroom glass shelves are all broken up. Cupboard space allows you to hang 2 jackets, and the door has holes punched in it. No safe in the room. The rooms are dirty; plugs are black with gritt and grime. Your breakfast coffee comes from a flask that seems to have been made the night before and is cold, and that is just the start. The staff are oblivious and unhelpfull with a no care attitude. They don't book tours. The hotel should maybe have a 1 star. MAYBE.

Room Tip: Book another hotel!!!!

I stayed in this hotel from 18th september to 21st september 2012. I had arranged a package tour prior to my arrival from malaysia. The tour company had chosen this hotel and did mention 3*.
This hotel should be classifed under 2*. The room did not have a kettle for making any drinks and there is no shampoo in the bathroom. They dont have a phone extension and their adaptor did not work. When i informed the front desk that i could not charge my phone they replied that probably my charger was faulty. I tried explaining to them that i just came from bradford hilton and i had no problem charging my phone there but they did not assist in anyway. I had to go around amsterdam without a phone line for 2 days and remember they did not have a phone line extension which means that I was not able to receive any calls in my room. I had to wait at the reception to receive a call from my daughter. Their breakfast was ok and their shower is powerful. There is a tram service very near from the hotel. The hotel is quite far from the city and there seems to be nothing much nearby.I would never stay in this hotel again and would not recommend anybody to stay here unless you are looking for a very basic room to sleep at night

Room Tip: Choose this hotel only as a last resort

Stayed at the Belfort for 3 nights (21/9/12). It's a cheap hotel, definitely not the rating it's given.
We found it to be reasonably clean,had no problems with the staff at all, in fact, found them to be very helpful. I guess it's all down to how you talk to them.
It is a little way from the centre, but, there's a tram stop right outside, with trams running into the city about every 10 mins.
If you're fit and able, take a walk through the Vondel Park to get to town, you won't be disappointed.
In my opinion, this hotel is too pricey for what you get,and it could do with a lot of TLC.
The continental breakfast was passable, just. Coffee's great though.
Would we stay there again? Probably not, there are much better hotels in Amsterdam for the price.

Room Tip: Walls are thin, noise travels easily, both from rooms and the busy crossroads right outside.

It was extremely horrible ! I arrived at 1 o'clock with my husband and our 14-year-old granddaughter and, as was written in the contract, we were supposed to check in starting with 12 pm. The check out was at maximum 11 pm, so we were sure that the room was already ready for us. Unfortunately, the girl on the front desk - who didn`t even welcomed us properly ( she could at least have smiled ) - told us we have to wait around an hour for the room. We didn`t mind at first, thinking we can look around for a bit. Sadly, there was NOTHING we could do around there. There wasn`t even a park with benches to sit on - it was the middle of nowhere... literary ! After half an hour of walking outside without a purpose, we came back in and sat on one of the couches ( the other one was occupied by a huge teddy bear ). As we were waiting, we saw who was cleaning the rooms - a girl that was sooo lazy and seemed so tired of life and a man that was carrying a broomstick around. It was already 2 o'clock, but we had to wait another 15 minutes. We were happy that we finally could get into the room, but as we stepped in, we were horrified - the room was extremely small and the bed sheets had dirt spots on them. The bathroom was small as well, you could barely move in it. The shower looked extremely old and we had a problem with the sink, that someone had to come and fix it quickly. As we were already disappointed, we wanted to open the window - it was a kinda hot day. SHOCK ! There was no way you could open any window. There was a huge window, that didn`t had any manners. We couldn`t believe this ! They gave us an extremely small air-conditioner on the table that did nothing, but make the dust fly. We had to keep it working and the door opened, because as we were staying in after 9 pm, we couldn`t possibly breath. We had to keep the air-conditioner on the whole night. The breakfast was acceptable, but the forks weren`t too clean. The milk tasted weird and the so-called ' fruit juices ' were tasteless. There were some average thing that could have been eaten, but not too many.
The staff there were kind of rude and were walking around pointlessly. My granddaughter asked them where she could get something and they only pointed at something and when she asked where exactly, they look so sic-tired.

AVOID THIS HOTEL ! Better go camping on the sidewalk - even this would be more enjoyable. Our luck we only stayed 2 nights.
