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!!!
