“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

I always use trip advisor when looking for hotels and this one was much better than the reviews give it credit.
I always tend to travel to cheaper hotels and this is one of the best I have been too.

We went to Amsterdam for a few days and stayed at Frisco Inn two nights. The hotel is in a perfect location. Less than 20 meters from the Damrak street, and yet in a quiet location. The rooms where clean and very comfortable. We had a room on the front side of the hotel and the noise was minimal. TV worked and had english channels and the shower room was more than adequate and clean.
I would defiantly recommend.

We didn't have a breakfast there so can't judge but there is some very nice bakery's and cafe's round the corner.

If you are going to stay in Amsterdam center and only looking to spend a small amount of money you shouldn't expect anything amazing but this out lived our expectations in all ways.

The only thing I can warn anyone about is the stairs but that is a dutch thing and any where else in the area I have stayed has steep stairs too.

We read reviews before we went and were a but worried- let me tell u, the people who wo
Rote them obviously expected 5 star luxury fOr the cheap price they paid! Haha. No but seriously great little hotel central for everything u want to do! The rooms ain't massive but decent size. Only let down and our faults cos should av checked, we like having baths and they only had showers. Stairs feel very steep the first time u go up then u get used to it! Lovely lady works on reception, which also is a bar (downstairs)! You can smoke outside but not in room which isnt really a problem! WOuld definitely recommend And stay again :)

This is my third time staying at the Frisco Inn in three years and have had a great time every year. You are a ten minute walk from the train station, 5 minute walk to china town, 5 minutes to red light district and just 2 blocks from the tram, It is a small hotel, 12 rooms I think. Its location is awesome if you have come here for fun. My room was nice and clean, with a view of the street ( can be a bit noisy during the day from church bells) the room was modern with TV, hair dryer and a very comfortable bed. There is no lift and the stairs are very very steep, but thats Amsterdam, The bar is located on the ground floor which also serves as the check-in. After staying here a few times, all the staff speak english and also seem to be well traveled and are very friendly at making conversation and help you get situated in the city. I also noticed that the hotel is now renting out a few bikes and a scooter also. A great place to stay in a great location.
Note, they also have free Wifi

Reserved a twin room, on arrival, after paying they told us they did not have a twin and we would have to take a double, which was not what i reserved. the room was small with no TV (even though it is advertised as TV in room), however the cables were dangling off the walls in a very dangerous way. asked if we would like breakfast in the morning said yes (2 slices of toast, cheese and ham and some yoghurt and musil mix) then they charged us 15 euro for the pleasure! when i emailed after to complain i was told there was nothing they could do for me and didn't care what review I put up, so here I am. Avoid this place like the plague, you do not get what you reserve and you certainly do not get what you pay for. Their lack of customer care is terrible, it seems they are only interested in your money and not customer satisfaction.

Room Tip: I have none as I reserved a twin but got a double!

The accommodation is fairly basic but was ample for our needs. And nice soft sheets! It's not mega salubrious but the staff more than make up for the little things that may niggle - they are welcoming, extremely helpful and friendly as well as full of great advice about how to travel around A'dam and where to eat etc. The bar downstairs is testament to the ambience of the place because they have some regulars who are immensely fun and friendly. Pretty much tells you what you need to know :) We had a lovely stay there and went away knowing that we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room at the front for a street view (though we had one at the rear and were perfec...

Amsterdam is great, and fun place to visit, with a lot of tourist tours and activities. All the tours take off from the center of Amsterdam and if you go there for 3-4 days is convenient to book a hotel right there. Frisco inn is too close only 3-4 minutes walking distance from there. It has very steep and noisy stairs, small and clean rooms, very helpful staff, but expensive for what you get. We took it for granted the friendliness of the staff and the convenience of the location, but we did not expect such a small room for 80 euros /night.....,but what do you expect for a hotel near the action!!

Frisco is a fab location, clean, and has the nicest staff on reception / the bar ever. Yes the stairs are steep and yes it is a little noisy but it's a great place to experience Amsterdam at it's best (and worst!!! ) we were a party of four and all agreed we would use this hotel again
