“Good location, average hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2010

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night before travelling to a music festival 200 miles south of Amsterdam. The location is excellent, right on the corner of the red light district so close to lots of bars & coffee shops and you're within walking distance of most attractions (apart from museum district). If you only want the hotel to get your hed down on a night then its fine but not great. We were in the attic room which was a decent size but a bit of a dump. I would expect to pay about £50 for a room like this so 80 Euros was a bit much, but that is quite cheap for Amsterdam i suppose. All in all, if you're not fussy about the hotel and you only want it to sleep & shower then this hotel is for you,it probably is value for money for Amsterdam standards but defintiely expensive for what it is

For a few days in Amsterdam this place is spot on. The bar is great and the staff are great - they also seem to make up a large part of the customer base when they are not working!
Rooms and stairs are typical of central Amsterdam - it is why you come to places like this - to experience the difference. Just enjoy it! Ensuite room had a quirky layout and was cleaned every day. Swipe card access to rooms and also swipe card access to accomodation via separate street door, if preferred. Security camera at base of magnificently precipitous staircase. With regard to other reviewers comments on the staircase - I have a screwed up leg and I coped with little difficulty (but lots of hilarity).
We were two couples in our late 40's/50's and this is our third trip to Amsterdam in the last 10 years. Without doubt, we would return here. Bars & restaurants on doorstep, boat trips/ canal bus/ trains, less than 5 minutes walk. We loved the place and it's lively, happy, atmosphere.
My wife used the provided ear plugs but the problem is not in-house. It is more to do with the acoustics of the narrow streets. I did not need them, nor did our friends.
If you are a bit precious, then there are things to whine about.
If you are a normal well adjusted traveller - you will smile and enjoy it.

The entire staff of hotel and pub were extremely helpful and friendly! Helped us sort out trams and find different locals. Above a pub and a main street in the red light so they include ear plugs with your room which is a great help! The rooms are clean but small and beds not the most comfortable, but if you are in Amsterdam to sleep then you are going to the wrong place!
The pub on the first floor was great! Very nice for meeting up with friends and for having a few drinks before heading out into the city. The orange juice was delicious :)
The location was the best we have stayed in Amsterdam and will be staying here every time we go back! Literally a 5 minute walk from central station. A coffee shop was around each corner, canals and shops surrounding it.
If you are in Amsterdam for a good time and want to stay in the heart of it all this is the place to book!

Pros: Very friendly staff, no restaurant food as such but cheap snacks. Sits on top of a pub so theres beer. Very close to the train station which is why I chose it. Had a double room which was 70e. Shared shower and toilet, although right outside the door. Also security swipe card which I appreciated. Good enough for 1 night dont know i would want to stay for a few nights tho.

Cons: Room itself was pretty dodge, clean enough and all, just a bit crap looking. Also noisy as this backs onto the red light disctrict and central Amsterdam. Also they let guests smoke (whatever they want) in the rooms so the room smelt a bit.

We had a great experience at Hotel Internationaal. The staff was awesome and the bar downstairs was a blast. We were within walking distance of everything; there were tons of sights, sounds, great restaurants, etc. nearby.

We are a 30 yr old married couple who travels frequently, but likes to be comfortable.

The staircase is treacherous, but that's to be expected. The hotel is very small, which we liked - maybe 12 rooms. We stayed on the first floor and had a double bed & shared bathroom. We never had a problem w/ having to wait for the toilet or shower. Our room had a sink inside, so we were able to wash our faces/brush our teeth. The bed was comfortable, so no complaints there.

It can get a little loud at night, but the hotel provides ear plugs. :-)

All in all, we had a great stay & would definitely go back again.

We stayed in the En-Suite room on the top floor (the stairs are steep but that is just typical of Dutch buildings!).

Good spacious room, windows fully open to get fresh air into the room.

Toilet/Bathroom was new and clean with a whirlpool bath.

Excellenty location, right by Amsterdam Central station and a 5-minute walk from Dam Square.

Will be staying here again!
