“Stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2005

Stayed at this hotel last month. In one word: terrible! It's dirty, smelly, noisy etc. Furniture is very old. Some of the staff are OK, others are very unfriendly. My advice: stay away!

May I start by saying that yes this Hotel is very basic, it is very clean and as others will confirm the location of this Hotel is absolutely tremendous, if you arrive via Centraal Station you will be in your room within ten minutes. Ok Amsterdam is a weekend city in the main where people come from all over the place to really enjoy themselves, this hotel caters for these people, if you want peacefull luxurious rooms to lay around in then dont come here!! I will be staying here for probably the sixth time (each time for 3 or 4 nights) in Feb 05, and I can safely say i have never had a bad time here. As for rude staff, this is ridiculous you normally get back what you put in, if you catch my drift. The bar downstairs is a public bar of the traditional (Brown Bar) standard and is a great place to start off your night. Directly over the road is a wonderful little Chinese greasy spoon type place, where tourists mix with locals alike, it is very reasonable and the food is simple but good, plus with it's favourable loaction you cant go wrong. Take a left turn out of the Hotel Bar door and take a stroll sown the very colourful Warmoestratt with leads to Dam Square or the RLD (five mins walk) . 5 star location, very reasonable, Well worth it.

First, the location is great. Right on the edge of the red light district. You won't get much sleep but you're not supposed to sleep in Amsterdam. Very clean, friendly staff. I will stay again next year.

In my opinion this was a great place. Not a luxury hotel, but not lacking at all. Clean, Friendly staff, New and Clean Bathrooms, very reasonable price, and the location is very close to Central Station. I will stay here again on my next visit.

Firstly , having stayed at Hotel Internationaal recently, i can see that the above review is accurate in detail (ie shower close to stairs, a bit noisy, beds pushed together etc) and given the above posters said treatment i can't blame them for hating the place... BUT i have a very different story. The young Irish girl and Dutch lad who were behind the bar (reception ;0) were excellent and very helpful with my mates numerous questions and offered sound advice.

The place was clean, beds were comfortable, the location is second to none (literally) and the staff are friendly. You can't get much more from budget accommodation.

This place was a dump - rude staff, broken toilet, leaking shower, and expensive for such a disaster
it's above a pub and i think the people running it should stick to just running a pub instead of trying to fleece travellers with its substandard accomodations
we (boyfriend and I) booked for 3 nights and was told that the toilet's broken but they'll fix it the next day
well, they couldn't get it fixed and only refunded us 5 euros out of the 85 euros a night we paid for the room
worse, the shower leaks, water runs down the stairs
but wait, the worse is yet to come - the staff banged on our door and accused us of causing the leak, when we didn't have the slightest idea that it did
they also accused us of using the broken toilet, when we didn't even go near it
we wanted to change a room but the staff (a 40-ish woman named linda) was really rude and curtly told us they had no room and we had to live with all the crap
we couldn't get out, as they made us pay upfront for the three nights
on top of that, we had to put up with thin walls, so that means lots of noise and we didn't have a good rest
on top of that, we paid for a double bed and what they did was just to push 2 single beds together
we couldn't wait to get out of there
so a sincere warning to you if u are looking for accomodation in amsterdam - beware of substandard, rude hoteliers
that said, amsterdam's a really pretty place, just be careful of where u choose your accommodations, it could seriously mar your trip
