When we arrived, we were told we selected the basement room, which we had not, with the window to the street at the foot of the stairs going to the hotel entrance and things went down hill from there. No AC was a big mistake on our part because we couldn't open the window to get a breeze without the bar, truck, yelling noises. The stairs to the basement are really bad because they are steep, without having drinks at dinner. The hotel staff is not there early in the morning or later in the evening and has little guidance on places to eat. The crowning blow was the sewage malfunction on our last night at 11:00Pm . After 90 minutes of plunging and banging, no correction was possible. The floor was flooded with sewage for a while until it was mopped up. We could not stay there as we were told the hotel was full. The manager tried to blame us for the problem by pointing out the sign on the wall about not putting foreign stuff in the toilet. Actually, the sewage lift pump failed and they didm;t have a replacement. They did put us in a close hotel for the next 5 hours when we happily left Amsterdam on out flight out. DO NOT STAY HERE under any circumstances.
