This was my first visit to Amsterdam - my girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Continental. I was pretty skeptical after reading these reviews; however, my experience exceeded my incredibly low expectations.
There is an automatic door and a short funny asian man when you walk into the tiny lobby. He is helpful however this hotel is very limited in resources . No internet, no computer, only a phonebook and a few flyers.
The night audit guy just got hammered, blacked out on the ground all night, and refused to help with any questions.
The whole place smells like lo mein in the morning because everyone goes to the really good asian place called lemongrass wok or soemthing like that and then i guess leaves it in their room overnight.
There is a pretty sweet vending machine - everything in it is warm and costs 2 euros
You can hear everything going on, next to your room, outside, etc
The bed is really comfortable
There is no shower or toilet in the room, its outside in the hall
reallly good coffeeshop right next door and a place that sells mushrooms - definetely a good location
I woulndt bring any valuables because anyone can just walk in and out of this place bc the door opens automatically and then u just have to give them a room number and they give u ur key.
Was fun, wouldnt stay more than 1 or 2 nights though.
