“Location location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in June. We are budget travellers so had pretty simple needs. This hotel ticked most of the boxes. The rooms are located above a bar which is downstairs which was fine. The man behind the bar who was also the "hotel manager" was very nice and up for a chat. To get to our room on the second floor we had to climb a super steep set of stairs (if you had bad knees and heavy bags it may be interesting). The room was quite old and the bed wasn't the comfiest however it was clean enough and had a sink. The amenities were shared between approx 4 rooms on the floor however were clean and functional. The biggest advantage of this hotel is its location as it is only a 5min walk from the centraal station and is basically on the door step to the red light district and main square. Was a bit loud at night but I'm sure it would be everywhere and wasn't a problem. Would stay here again.

Room was basic but of very good standard and the staff were very helpful and attentive. We had the shared bathroom which I was dreading at first but it was actually ok, we had no problems at all. It's situated in a great location and I would definitely go back there.

We agree. Is not the Ritz. But people who works in the hotel (the man at the bar and the lady) are so nice and kind, that they make you feel good and comfortable with the other details. If you're just for one or two nights in town don't hesitate.
Plus is very well located.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are better. Less noise from the streets.

Arrived early, lady on front desk said no room was available but that I could check in at 12. Returned at 12 only to be told to go away as room wasn't ready. When I eventually got into a room it was dirty, small and smelled very badly of smoke. Communal toilet and shower were clean but that is the only comlpiment I could pay this hotel. Window did not close properly and had a piece of wood to hold it open.
Hotel is on the edge of the red light district and is very loud until very late. A fact that is not helped by a window that won't close properly.
Do not stay here, spend a little extra and get somewhere clean and quiet.

Dear Mr. Connecticut,
Our stuff very appreciate your point of view. But you do not have to be so harsh only because you did not get a room earlier then it is suppose to be. It is clearly says on each and every web site that check in time at 14:00 (or 2:00 PM) and you may get the room earlier only if it is possible to do so.
Rooms are clean and cosy enough as it could be in a one star hotel.
Location is great and this is not an edge of a Red Light District, you saying not true Sir! This is the beginning. We are right infront of the Central Station of Amsterdam, definitely it can not be the edge.
And about your Review Title "Stay away!" - I think you should not write so incorrect reviews at all. The thing is that you insulted not only the workers of the hotel Internationaal, but also you insulted the hundreds of our fans. Check our Face Book, we have a lot of fans there.

The hotel is very conveniently located, near Central Station and City Center. Good price for a great location. Clean and basic room. Good for a short stay! I was in the second floor and there was a very strong smell. Hotel staff are welcoming and helpful .
