Did not take any food, looks too untidy. Breakfast is good for once to experience. However good for the night to stay. Did not like the many marihuana smokers around the hotel, it stinks everywhere!!!

The hotel is very good considering the price we have paid. It was clean, we had direct transport to Central station (20 min by tram), they had 24/7 food service in case you get hungry :).. and i really loved the bed!

Poor Break Fast & no restaurants around the area. To get to town there the tram is a five minute walk away. The hotel is non smoking (with fines) so every one smokes at the entrance. No noise after 10 pm but we had a couple of drunkards talking and howling all nigh - hey, it's Amsterdam after all! So we no complaints about that.

Hotel West Side Inn, Amsterdam is good value for money. The rooms are neat and clean, easy reach via tram number 2 (25 min from Centraal Station and then 5 min walk) and also close to almost all famous museums in Amsterdam.

The only drawback we felt was that the rooms had no air conditioning and the windows of the room were West facing - makes it difficult if you are not used to stay in hot atmospheres (we had been in European summers).

This hotel was in an OK part of town. A lot of people have complained that it was remote and creepy, but since I was with 3 other people so I never felt unsafe.

It doesn't look like the pictures at all, very run down and barely clean. The shower was blocked and when you stepped out the tray was full of water. The pressure in the shower was good but you had to hold the shower head as it wasn't attached properly.

I woke up with lots of bed bug bites, I've never been bitten before and I now believe them to be infected as 12 days have passed and they are still itchy and swollen despite having put antihistamine cream etc.

People say you get what you pay for, but I have stayed in far cheaper places in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Seoul to name but a few and have never stayed anywhere as appalling as this.

Spend your money elsewhere. We were lucky not to have seen rats and mice, but I'm not sure that I should be counting my blessings? Nobody should have to be exposed to this level of hospitality, especially when its being paid for. If they need to call the exterminator they should close down for a period of time and do so and stop exposing people to these kind of conditions.

In general it's a nice Hotel and comfortable. The service it is good but I think the Price is not the correct because in Germany for the same room is more cheaper.
However, it's recomended this Hotel!
