Just stayed here for 2 nights last minute for traveling to Amsterdam for work.
The basement room was dark and smelled damp - rather like A prison cell. At €300 per night it was an absolute joke. When I checked in I was asked to pay with my card, I was presented with a Credit card receipt to sign where the hotel had converted the €'s into £'s at a very poor rate. I questioned the member of staff and stated that I wished to pay in €'s not £'s and he got quiet angry at me and told me that it was in €'s and the the £'s was just for information. I read the small print on the receipt which confirmed to me that they were charging me £'s and not €'s and questioned him again at which point he got angrier stating that I was only being charged €'s and what happens with my card was my banks problem. THIS IS BARE FACED LYING - and I would hope fraudulent in the Netherlands. I checked with my card issuer today and I had indeed been charged £'s, the difference in the rate = £44 for the 2 nights...
