“Good location and price for Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

A good location, just 5 minutes from three different tram stops. Pretty quiet location as well, as it's just outside the canal district. No air conditioning, which might have been uncomfortable had we spent afternoons at the hotel, but why would you want to do that in Amsterdam? The room was pretty small, but clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has a small elevator, which is handy for luggage. Breakfast isn't anything special, but it's a pretty wide selection.

Don't expect overfriendliness from the proprietor and staff, but they are professional and lend assistance when asked.

A good place to stay for the price.

Room Tip: The shared bathroom are only shared by people in one single and one double room. The other rooms all...

Worst hotel ever!!!
Do not stay here!!!! As we arrived the creepy man at reception was SO rude had a massive argument was not made to feel welcome at all.
He was in next room listening and the room was tiny & not for 4 people. When we went down after being there for 5 mins the man shouted at us stating the room was for 5 people which it clearly wasn't!!! Iwas so bad we lost out money but we could not stay here. We lasted 10 minutes. so booked a different hotel there & then over the phone.
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!

After reading previous reviews I was apprehensive about staying at this hotel! However it had been recommended by a friend so it was booked.

I am delighted to say that I have nothing to complain about regarding my stay here!

This is not a boutique hotel (and the prices reflect this) - however the rooms are adequate, clean and comfortable. I found the staff friendly and helpful and they informed me about the lift immediately,

The hotel is nicely situated, afar enough away from the main tourist area to be quiet, but also only a pleasant short walk and you are in the center of the city.

I definitely will be booking this hotel again!!

My friends and I booked 2nights at this hotel, we where there for a social time, we arrived 30mins before check in closed and the hotel was shut, we rang the bell on the wall for assistance and 'the man' came strolling from another building down the road, he didn't even welcome us in, he barged past us opened the door letting it slam against the wall and did the same again with his reception door then he asked for passports and payment, while he was filling out his paperwork he stopped what he was doing looked at us in such a rude manner and then continued to do his paperwork, our room was on the 3rd floor and to use the stairs you would be risking your life, once we got to our room which was meant to be a twin room, it was set out as a double, the room was small, I didn't even look in the bathroom the walls where thin all i could here was other peoples toilets flushing, I was appalled to be in this hotel, I wish I never paid the man, in the end I booked another hotel, the only one that was available at 10:30pm was the Marriott hotel twin room which was 5mins walk away, the owner ruined our 1st night in this wonderful city and Marriott made our weekend

I love Amsterdam, i have been 3 times in the past year. This was by far the worst hotel i have EVER been to. We arrived on the Friday, we were told check in was available until 10pm. we landed in amsterdam, went for a few drinks and really got into the fun spirit of holidaying in this beautiful city.
We arrived at the hotel at 9.30pm to drop off our luggage before going back out to enjoy the night life. At that moment we realised this hotel really was not for us. i have never known to meet one single person that can destroy a good mood and atmosphere to the point that this guy at reception did. He made it quite clear he didn't like us from the start, he was very creepy, he had no customer service skills and was so rude to us. we went up to our room... i lost count of how many flights of stairs we travelled with our luggage, with no help! we wernt told there was a lift in this hotel.
The room was tiny, no good for 4 people! only 2 bath robes and 2 tiny bags of haribo sweets. As my friends went to discuss this with the man he immediatley knocked on the door with extra robes.. it was almost as if there was a hidden camera in our room. very creepy.
He addressed my friend at reception with the sentence "what have you come to complain about?" she made it clear to him we were not there for trouble and that we were sorry if we got off on the wrong foot, his reply " i do not care if you want to make trouble, then make trouble"
it was obvious he did not want us there.
we were so creeped out we knew we couldn't stay there for the 2 nights we had already booked and payed for... yes it really was that bad! in the end we managed to get a room for 2 nights at the marriot hotel down the road which was worth every penny! we lost our money from the jupiter hotel but we really could not have stayed there.
Rude, creepy, awful man. do not stay here if you are going to Amsterdam for abit of fun!!! we felt like we couldn't even cough without getting into trouble!!

I love Amsterdam but it's was the worst hotel I ever stayed at, the owner was mad and rude, he have us a room on the top floor, we had 3 heavy suit cases and he didn't even tell us we could use the lift

We only realized there's a lift in the hotel after we carried our bags all the way up there on the very tiny stairs

The room was the smallest double room I ever stayed in

Really I hated this hotel

Nice cozy hotel. The only thing is that its not really in centrum, its about 30-40 mins walk - nice walk. Guy at the reception bit scary, could smile a little bit more ;-), very nice room. But why you can't smoke on the balcony? There is the reason u choose with balcony, i guess u cant have everything
