4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in the 2 person apartment on newmaarkt - great apt, all you need for a short stay in a great 'people watching' location! Linen & towels clean. Definitely would go back. Obviously if you dont like the smell of smoke or the look of Prostitutes plus small stairs this isnt the place for you!!

Helpful staff , nice clean rooms.

I've stayed in several rooms in the hotel and now also the apartment/studios located 20 metres from the main hotel.

A nice breakfast was available uptil noon if you fancy a lie in one day.

You get hotel discount for various things in the bar/coffeeshop.

It's location is great as its right in the centre , no trams or taxis needed , and 5 minutes walk from the Central Station.

Here you get a true taste of Amsterdam rather than the Corporate Hotel chain dull effect.

I always make this my number 1 choice when i visit Amsterdam

Room Tip: There's pictures on the website of the rooms so have a look as they are all designed differently...

Just got back from a 3day break in Amsterdam staying at 'The Greenhouse Effect'... great location, nice friendly staff, clean room (I was in the 'red light' room)... for people who know what Amsterdam is all about this is a great place to stay.

Me and my friend have just come back from a weekend in Amsterdam, made even better by the service we received from the staff at The Greenhouse Effect. They were extremely helpful, friendly and very welcoming, the apartment we stayed in was clean, modern and had lovely views. Right in the redlight district with coffeeshops and bars a few steps away, we couldn't have asked for better. this is our 5th trip to Amsterdam and will definitely be booking our next stay at the Greenhouse Effect.

went here last year, got in late bout 9pm on a friday,
bloke that checked us in was a bit off at 1st, but slowly warmed to us after a while, asked for the room money upfront, even though it says end of trip on website however because the bar (reception) cafe and hotel are in 3 different front doors, i can imagine it stops people bumping the hotel final day, we we're directed to our rooms. got the triple room mary jane on 1st floor, loved it, nice psychedelic decor and lights in the room. 70's style metal reflecting table and chairs, mini fridge at reasonable prices, beds were basic bunkbeds but done what you needed them to do, large opening windows onto the main street, some people have complained about the noise the smell of weed etc front his street when windows open. but we were ranged 25-30 years old, and that's what we wanted, sit around the table music on few beers few local herbs and watch the world go by people having a good time untill rest of lads ready then head out,

as stated the cafe and bar are part of the hotel and if you stay there you get discounted beers (already cheap beers since happy hour birngs them tio 3 euro a pint) and you get 20% off any cannabis purchasing from the connected cafe

bar and cafe staff are very helpfull and will happily give you any info on strains or beers to buy or help you find other places to go,

breakfasts were fine, usual ham cheese bread malakrey, coffee n teas available for free refils too, dedicated smoking area in the bar also for cigarettes.

checking out the staff will radio cleaner to check you aint robbed the mini fridge or damaged anything on leaving, seen peoples reviews complaining about this, but what do you expect, if it was your hotel you wouldnt want people leaving without paying for damages or mini fridge.

deffo book up here again especially after this years experience at a more expensive hotel being diabolical

Room Tip: mary jane triple room is amazing

... no shower curtain, burned out light bulbs and a bag of garbage left from a previous stay or by some neighbor on the stairs at our door. All of this we were not expecting to face up but we did. And we survived! Also they have a very cheap toilet paper so we had to buy a better one. All the rest is nice and sweet, especially if you don't mind to live on the corner of Bloedstraat centrum (fab location HAHA), listening to giggles and someone's talking, sniffing fumes of smoke from the coffeeshop a floor lower than your apartments. It WAS an adventure for us, but, to be honest... i doubt if we will ever again come to this place. One has to have quite low standards to accept this as a nice stay.

Room Tip: never choose Bloedstraat cenrum apartments! foul hole!

Good atmosphere, comfortable surroundings, good central location... fruit smoothies to die for. Would recommend in seasons when it's not too busy. Holidays = crowds. Music is chilled and enables chatting to friends, which some other venues miss.
