3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Budget hotel for sure, the decor is a little dated, but the rooms are clean, the location is excellent.

The elevator didn't work while we were staying, seems like it might have been broken for a long while... If you can't do stairs, do not stay here. Other than that, the price was great, the rooms decent, and location very good.

Room Tip: Ask if the elevator is working, if its still out of service, get a room on a low floor. The stairs a...

I am the manager of TravelMagma.com
I stayed at your hotel at 18.4 for 3 nights.
First I came to the hotel to check-in at 14:00 and it wasn't ready (it suppose to be ready at 13:00)
So we left our stuff and then came back to the hotel at 21, we got the last room left in the hotel as it was full,
It was the room downstairs WITHOUT a view to the canal and also every time we had a shower all the room was flooded as the drain was blocked.
When we booked the room through hotels.com we were promised a room with a canal view and we didn't get it! We were on time in the hotel
and the room wasn't ready at check-in time. If I had known that we wouldn't get the nice room with the view I would have booked another hotel.
Only 2 days later when you had a free room you changed us.
I would like to get a compensation on the room price for not getting the room we were promised.
I know that all the rooms has the same price, but you promised me one thing and I got another room!
I contacted the manager of Armada hotel through his email:
houman@savoyhotel.nl
and got no response, also the receptionist didn't want to call the manager and ask so i can complain personally.
Let me know your response asap, Here is the room details:

We came on Kings Day, and could bearly reach the door, there was a concert outside the hotel.
There is no food, but the reseption is helpful, they smile and provide excellent help. No luxury but its ok. Clean rooms, new towels every day and close to almost everything.
I recommand the place

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend along with two friends, overall it ticked the majority of boxes, location was ideal (5 min walk to Rembrandt Square) the front desk staff was polite and happy to help with our enquires, the room was cleaned daily to a high standard (however we bagged our rubbish and it was left in the room everyday?) my only critism was the room itself, for 3 big lads it was quite a squeeze especially when discussing the bathroom, I was able to use the toilet and shower at the same time... the only other thing was we had to wedge to window open just to get some air in as it wouldn't stay open without intervention. I would definitely stay here again if I was to ever return to Amsterdam but after experiencing the prices it wont be too soon.

A total mess. We paid for breakfast and got none! Rooms were dirty and the cleaner didn't even bother throwin away an empty roll of toilet paper.
Location was good by wouldn't stay here not even for free. Only one lady at the reception was helpful and nice.
Such a shame we had to pay extra to get some food in the morning.

Room Tip: Bring your own sheets and towel. Mine smelled like dead zombies.

Clean room... I know this as i watched it being cleaned... Mix up with the reception and cleaning staff meant we were given the keys before they had finished! Speaking of keys we were handed the after paying in advance for the room! Then thats it "dont worry we'll find it our selves" funny really. Good for price good for location and generally good! You dont get the ritz for this price. But we we're happy.
