“Lovely little hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed at the bicycle hotel for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. The staff are all so chilled out, let us pay the day after arriving as we'd had a long coach journey. We hired bicycles for three days which was cheap and convenient, they give you your own key to the bike garage so you can come & go as you please. The hotel is in a really nice quiet area, but still very close to everything we wanted to see.The rooms are basic but just what we needed for a short stay, continental breakfast was basic but again just what we needed and great for the price. The shared shower and toilets were very clean and in good condition. We had a fantastic time! Would definitely go back to this little hotel :-)

Stayed here with a group of freinds for a 3 night weekend.

On the negative side: Rooms are cramped and very basic, really hostel class. The web pictures don't really show just how basic they are.

On the plus side:
Very freindly and helpful staff
Good system for out of hours arrival
Breakfast good
Location good to Ok - easy tram to Dam Square/station or nice 30 min walk to City through the Albert Cuyp market

Awesome little budget hotel about a 10 - 15 minute tram ride from the centre and the train station. We stayed for 3 nights. Staff were really helpful. Breakfast was the best we had during our travels - each table had their own toaster which was cute. We had room 13 on the first floor and the bed was really comfy. Only thing I would say is negative is that the stairs are very steep so if you were higher than the first floor it could be an issue.

Room Tip: Room 13 on the first floor right next to the bicycle neon sign is awesome

GREAT WiFi. Best hotel bed I've had in a while. CLEAN. Good showers. Love environmentally conscious aspect of the hotel. Bikes were well maintained and good value (7.50EU/day). A little out of the way, but very quiet street and I actually thought location was perfect ... close enough to get to the center quickly, but a place to chill for a couple of hours before dinner.

Only downside was that I thought that breakfast was lame and it was a little on the pricey end (though, for Amsterdam, I guess it's about right).

Room Tip: 1.B is good double with nice shower and workable TV. Love the location right next to the Bicycle si...

Basic but comfortable hotel with a hostel feel about it. The numerous staff who seem to change on a daily basis are all multi-linqual, very friendly and extremely helpful. A little off the beaten track but only a 15 minute tram ride from the centre.

Stayed for 2 nights here and it was a very pleasant experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was small but adequate for my stay and the bed was comfortable. Fortunately there was only 1 flight of "Amsterdam special" stairs to climb!
The breakfast room was light and pleasant and the food more than adequate to set you up for the day. The bike hire is great, there was a problem with my first one but I was quickly given another which was fine. The free WiFi is also a nice touch.
All in all a good hotel and much better than some of the cheap central hotels for a similar price. The quiet location was good and only a short tram ride from Centraal. I even walked back from Damrak in under 30 mins. I'd definitely go back. Could do with better directions though, it's not clear you have to cross the Ceintuurbaan but once I'd realised it was easy enough to find.
