“good location, cheap, noisy, hot, good staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

we spent at the hotel a weekend, looked around Leidsplein for a hotel by walking from one hotel to the other, even stinky hostels offered 140euros per night for 3 persons, hotel de paris was cheapest with 115euros offer with good staff small but in a good condition room. The rooms facing the street are really noisy with no isolation windows, with earplugs and a lot of hash could sleep quite well. you can try to request room facing the back, but they are hard to get. the weekend was really hot, and this made sleeping even harder (no aircon). anyway, if you like what you hear the hotel is good for you...

Room Tip: rooms facing the back of the hotel

This is a budget hotel and excellent value in a wonderful location close to restaurants theaters shops etc Within 2 mins walk of the local tram system The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly
The room was very small and on the ground floor, avoid the ground floor if possible as there is a lot of noise of people checking in and chatting in the reception area at night.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean but the shower was dangerous in that the control could easily be moved when you had your back to it and the water so hot as to scald you

Room Tip: Don't book a room on the ground floor or basement to avoid noise of late night arrivals at recep...

I got a good deal on this room. Cheapest for best value in Amsterdam for sure.

Pros:
-Decent Breakfast
-Comfortable Room, Clean, and Amazingly Central, has everything you'd expect for a boutique hotel.
- Awesome location
- Well maintained

Cons:
-TINY Room, so small that when you can't even open the door to the washroom without hitting something.
-Rude night staff- I brought a friend over late at night and they threatened to charge me double occupancy- luckily the manager apologized for this the next day.
- A bit noisy

In a nutshell.. great place to stay while in Amsterdam and good value for money, however there may be one or two things you'll find which will get on your nerves.

The hotel is old fashion,and not very pretty,the stairs are very steep and narrow and there is no elevator to the downstairs rooms.the receptionist that worked in the evening was not very friendly.the food was OK but the kitchen staff was a bit strange,like they were spying on the guests.
The rooms are way to small,but the hotel has a central location,so if you are just looking for a place to sleep its quite ok.

If your looking for a place to stay that is within walking distance from the entertainment district of Amsterdam, then the Hotel De Paris is the place to stay. It's a short tram ride on the #2 tram from Central Station. The rooms are clean, staff are friendly and helpful and I suggest you take the morning breakfast option. Breakfast includes scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, toast, cereal, toast and much more. The best rates are during the weekdays. Hard Rock cafe, the Holland Casino are within walking distance too. I ALWAYS choose the Hotel De Paris when visiting Amsterdam.

So much to say about this hotel both good points and bad points, so breaking it down to sections.

STAFF:
When I arrived I had read the comments about some of the staff so was a little worried. However the guy that checked me and the other staff that were around on my arrival were all friendly and helpful. However after that all I can say is avoid interaction unless needed. They were not rude or unhelpful just glared alot but got the job done, very brisk and efficient but don't smile. The two woman that seem to have something to do with breakfast were a little intimidating when you get up to get something they follow you then fiddle around with something like a jug or paper and sit back down I was not really sure what their purpose was, but found it a little creepy.

ROOM:
I have never had to change hotel rooms due to noise ever! Iam an incredibly heavy sleeper, but honestly it was beyond a joke. The front of the hotel is a on a busy high street with trams every few minutes. The bed is wedged right up against the window and no space to move away from it. Even with my iphone music tuned up I could still hear the trams and gave up on any hope of sleep. The rooms are tiny but the same in most European hotels. The rooms were generally clean with a good amount of power points. The stairs are steep and narrow, again another Amsterdam thing but a working lift was available.

After the first night I asked if there was any possibility of a room change to a quieter part of the hotel and thankfully there was! I was moved to the back of the hotel to a very similar room but no trams!! unfortunately there was a large party of teenagers next door who partied until the small hours but I slept through their drum and bass anything was better than the trams! There is also a rancid smell of sewage in a lot of rooms again i think this is a general problem nt unique to the hotel.

Location:
Cannot be faulted and was one of my key criteria when I was booking, a couple minutes walk if that from leidsplan and obviously outside the door a tram stop, if location is key this hotel is ideal.

Refreshments:
Breakfast is included and is typical continental style eggs meat cheese cereals juices and hot drinks all very pleasant. It does say free coffee through out day (there are no facilities in the rooms) but again this seemed to be met with disapproval by staff but not refusal.

WIFI:
This was important to me as had to do work whilst there connection was excellent and fast.


Taxes:
In Amsterdam you pay a city tax for your stay ( I was aware of this) I paid aprox nine euros on arrival, on check out the guy decided I hadn't paid and insisted I pay again around eight euros this time. I did not think to get a receipt and ended up paying tax twice so obviously was not happy about that.


All in all some very good things but I found the hotel staff slightly intimidating at times, as a single female traveller I don't think that this may have been the best hotel choice maybe if I was a group of burly young lads it would been better.

Room Tip: Back of the hotel a must!

Hotel De Paris is a very well located hotel to explore the centre of Amsterdam. Yes the rooms are small and bathroom very compact but it is clean and we couldn't fault any of the staff. The gentlemen on reception were helpful and courteous and moved us from our noisy room without delay. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel as you won't hear any traffic noise and can sleep with the window open if hot. Plenty of choice for breakfast which is replenished regularly and free tea and coffee available 24hrs. Would certainly recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter
