“Not even a single night!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I stayed with my wife here on our recent trip and it was a harrowing experience!!!! The room was very small and the bed was dirty with cigarette butts and garbage in the gap between the bed and the wall (this was supposed to be covered with a wood frame which was broken so could see all that). The linens were not good and there was no fan or a/c to use in the room. Our room was on the topmost floor and as there was no elevator we had to carry our luggage on the stairs which were too small to fit 2 persons at the same time. The only good thing I could say about the hotel was its location. It was a 2 min walk to the flee market and waterlooplein square. Lots of restaurants in 2-3 min walk was a good thing.

We regret you didn't enjoy your stay with us , within the budget and Rating that we are we do our best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. we are a monumental old hotel in a listed building where the rooms ,stairs are kept in the original state . that make us an unique hotel with a lot of character ,typical Old Dutch Brown Style , like the typical bars and cafe in the old center. we never claimed to be of higher standards and should be rated in the category that we are ,we exactly delivered the room ,sizes of the room and services as mentioned in our description and pictures of the property. We hope you enjoyed Amsterdam and his beauty despite your experience with us and had a good time. Sincerely

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Me and a friend stayed for 2 nights and for that amount of time this hotel was just fine. The breakfast was less than basic although that didn't bother me too much. The staff were kind and helpful and the manager seemed very laid back which would encourage me to stay there again. Damon and Gren :-)

A very pleasant location, just on the edge of the red light district, some said the rooms were small in other reviews, however we found that they also had a number of apartments which were basic but ideal for a short break, staff were friendly and helpful. we were originally book for one of the room so they put us in an apartment, which we then asked to stay in which was not a problem
Breakfast was as you would expect basic but adequate.

Firstly a big thank you to Jordy and Stefan polite, friendly and a good laugh,

Location:- The Hotel is in a fabulous location (pease see reception staff for the free tour maps) central but in a residential area so you can have your kicks in town and still get a good sleep.

Decor:- not going to lie - in places its tired but you can see the ongoing renovations/works in progress and when I mentioned that the Bathroom we had needed TLC the Manager agreed and its on his list which is fair enough, A friend had a room that has had work carried out and she was delighted with her bathroom, and honestly if you take 2 mins to look at the "loud"/smoke room you can see what they are working towards, and frankly the prices for a stay here reflect this.

Beds:- super comfortable - a previous reviewer said they only had 2 pillows, the pillows I had were huge and fuffy and i only needed one, rooms tidied daily towels changed & beds made, (can i just point out that if you leave your stuff everywhere the cleaners cannot do their job properly they are damned if they move your stuff and damned if they cant clean everywhere)

Food:- Basic breakfast meats and cheeses and juice with tea or coffee, we requested English tea and more juice and staff promptly sorted it for us, Food is fresh daily and set out in small quantities to maintain freshness, if something needs topping up a smile and a please translates to good service in any language.

Bar:- Has no spirits (not such a bad thing in hindsight) yet it does have a small range of beers/lagers, again a request for bottled lagers was met promptly. The bar is covered by the night staff between their other jobs, this wasnt an issue as they always said i just have to do some work i will be 10 mins can i get you anything first, we mainly stayed to have a catch up on our various excursions before bed, and with the amount of bars in town a small selection for a night cap was fine for us.

Other bits:- The stairs are steep and winding, as they are in every other building I visited in the city - be warned you will walk for miles and up and down (thats why a quiet beer in the bar IS needed before tackling the stairs)
Yes there are only hand towels, but dont most people take their own? Hand wash is provided in the bathrooms.
Toilets, Dutch loos are odd, they have a very flat pan and water sluices things forward to the drain. If you do not flush properly your waste will sit in the down pipe part of the pan, and the rooms are warm and it WILL smell.
Windows can ony open a little but thats the law we were told.

Room doors, if they dont close properly they buzz, if they stop buzzing but are still open, when they are moved they will buzz, yes annoying BUT a handy extra security feature

Never used the TV so cant comment there. there is so much to see and do!

More than enough plug points for 4 sets of straightners phones and hairdryers and irons

We had an early arrival and late check out but we were not put off to book in and not rushed when we had booked out, in fact staff kept our baggage safe so we could enjoy our day and simply collect our bags for the late check out (thank you again that made all the diffefence to our stay)

Would I come here again, YES, the staff worked hard to ensure we enjoyed our stay and I felt welcomed and comfortable there

If I was bringing my children I would pay more to stay in the appartments but I would visit this charmingly quirky family run hotel before paying for somewhere with a higher "star" ranking

Room Tip: Room 11 has a brilliant breeze on warm days - but you have to work for it as its 3 flights up, but t...
