3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

The rooms are clean but are small. It is near to the Red Light Distrit and the people is funny. The cafe is very good, and typical of Amsterdam, coffe is really tasty. The worst of Amsterdam is the weather...

We like this coffee shop as it is away from the main city centre/red light and the riff raff. Good size shop with a seperate smoking room. Staff are helpful and attentive and no one makes anyone else uncomfortable. They have a menu which tells you how strong each type of weed is and can make recommendations for you. The coffee here is bloody good also. Definitely recommend...

The staff at the coffee shop were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about their product and some of the best inventory around. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, but the atmosphere and vibe was great. They have nice snacks and munchie food and everyone was as friendly as can be. I would certainly recommend a visit.

Room Tip: Try the Amnesia Haze!!!

Didn't stay at the hotel but the cafe was extremely welcoming and friendly. Great tunes played and the hot choc with cream was to die for. A lovely mellow place to hang out for a couple of hours to try the "interesting" side of Amsterdam, with friendly clientele and staff.

Such a nice wee hotel in the heart of amsterdam. Welcomed by all the staff and any advice we needed we got. Stayed for 2 days and had breakfast every money. Made fresh at your request. Down in the coffee house they have the best hot coco ever. The only issue is the stairs, thay can be steep and get worse with a few drink but that was never an issue as what do you expect with the houses in amsterdam.

Room Tip: Rooms at front can get loud if your window is open during the summer but winter this should not be a...

Good breakfast and attentive staff. Downside was the room facing the street. Since it was warm, we had to leave the window open and the street noise went well into the morning.

Stayed 5-8 july, great location for sightseeing but really noisy at night. Staff not as helpful as described in other reviews, rooms not great but served as a bed for the night. Stairs are very steep - you wouldnt need to have had 'one too many' before trying tackle them. Breakfast room very small and lacks pleasant atmosphere we went once and then didnt bother after that. The internet wifi access did not work. Overall this hotel was disappointing.

If I was going back to Amsterdam I would look for other accomodation.
