We were looking for somewhere cheap to stay while in town to run the Marathon. Big mistake on our part.
We were given a normal double room and were told we would be upgraded to a Deluxe Double the second day. I was a bit put out by the idea of having to switch rooms but it was well worth it in the end. The management was nice enough to offer us free breakfast both days to compensate us for the hassle but we didn't make use of it. I am still not sure what we paid for since we booked through an online travel agency and there wasn't a distinction between rooms mentioned in our booking.
The first room we stayed in the first night was really awful. Very small with only a very small sink in the room--we had to go down the hallway to use the toilet or shower. The sink was so small it was difficult to wash your face in it. The room faced the square (I wasn't aware of what a party location it was) and the windows weren't soundproof. Anyone but a very heavy sleeper would be sure to wake up, especially when rave disco is blaring across the square full force at 4 in the morning). In short it wasn't a good place to spend the night before a marathon and I thought we should have gotten a bit more for what we paid. We also found out when we came back to the hotel that afternoon that our bags had not been moved into our new room as promised and were instead piled up in the kitchen/bag storage room. Glad I had brought a luggage lock.
The second night was fine. Upgraded to a deluxe double and it made all the difference. Roomier. Own bathroom. Comfortable bed.
The staff at the hotel were quite nice. They were very helpful about bringing my luggage down from the room and then into the street when a running injury barely allowed me to make it down the stairs.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel to any of my friends. It may be good for a couple of college types who are in Amsterdam to party.
