“Hemp Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2006

My boyfriend and I flew into Amsterdam early in the morning, and if there is one negative thing that I have to say about the Hemp Hotel is - early travelers, beware! - your room won't be ready until 3 pm. We were lucky because Cathy, the girl who runs reception/bar duty during the weekdays, was nice enough to fix up our room a little earlier after seeing how tired we were. She even let us nap in a vacant room while ours was being cleaned.

Don't be expecting a Hilton when you come to the Hemp Hotel. For 70 euros a night you get a small - but extremely cute and quirky - room with a shower. The toilet is in the hall, but it's clean and you don't have to share it with too many people (only five rooms in the whole hotel). Both the rooms and the lobby have multi colored walls, butterflies on the ceilings, that sort of thing.

The hemp hotel personifies the essence of Amsterdam. The reception/bar staff is really friendly, interesting, and everything is so CHILL! No matter what your plans are for the day, you can always start it off with a morning smoke and hemp roll - and end it with a night smoke and some hemp beer. The bar is open until four so there always something to do at your doorstep (but if you want to turn in early the noise isn't an issue).

All in all, the hemp hotel is a perfect place for those seeking a fun budget time in Amsterdam. We highly recommend!!!

We booked this hotel as it looked interesting, we've been to the 'dam a few times now and wanted to try something different.

However, it was not quite what we expected....After finally finding it (tiny sliver of a building!)we picked up the key for the room from the bar beneath the hotel and headed upstairs.

The stairs have no handrail are amazingly steep, quite hard to believe they're actually legal in a hotel. Anyway, got into the room which was fairly small but clean. However,we soon realised that there was no toilet. I had booked a twin room with shower, assuming in my innocence that a loo came along with it! I was wrong it was outside on the landing and whilst clean it is just not something we could compromise on.

The room decor was like student 'digs' (unloved rented accomodation) and if you stood by the window was in danger of developing frostbite as the draught was so bad it was like one of the windows was open.

So, we beat a hasty retreat to get somewhere warm and with it's own loo (NH Schiller, where we'd been previously)

This is not to say that the Hemp Hotel is terrible, it's not, just know what to expect. It's a budget hotel which is not made clear on it's website. It is defintitely not suitable for families or anyone needing the privacy of their own bathroom.
