“Brilliant for the price - Central, Cheap, Clean, Friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Best location I could have asked for!

A 5 minute walk from central station once you get off the train.
Right near trams.
Right near a lovely canal.
Right next to the grass hopper (brilliant tourist 'coffee shop')
10 seconds away from a bakery, gift shops, sex shops etc.
Didnt use the bar, as its only over the road from 'Teasers'

Went here with 2 friends, we booked for just 2 of us and the 3rd joined us last minute, contacted the hotel and asked for an extra mattress in our room which they were more than happy to do for an extra 30 Euro a night.


The room was clean and nice.
Bathroom was clean.
Bed and bedding clean.

Would be great for friends, solo or a couple.
We are 23 year old females and it was a great location for us.
My auntie and uncle stayed here too (they're in their 50's) and they loved the location.
So I would say it has no age restriction.

Only downfall is that it can be quite noisy, but that's expected and worth it for the location!

Stairs .. awful! Giving what most people go Amsterdam for .. could have been dangerous!
Most reviews on this place speak of the stairs, I looked at photos before I went, but the photos do them no justice!

Room Tip: I booked online and was randomly assigned a room, and it was a good one. I had a front view room wh...

Just a clean room with a tv, shower,wc and a bed, all you need if you want a nice place just to rest your head , a shame there wasn't a kettle, tea/coffee. location great can be seen from the steps of centraal station. staff very friendly/helpful, music from below can be heard till late though not loud enough to disturb our sleep (personally i would of liked a speaker feed straight to the room just to cut the muffle) all round the best weekend in a long time Thanks

A stone throw away from amsterdam central station with easy access to Dam square where all the f&b outlets and shopping malls are available. Checking in counter is location at the bar.

No lifts is available and stairs is very steep. Near proximity to the red light district and the old church, as such noise is unavoidable. Room is clean with comfortable bed, howvere there is no aircon available as such it will not recommended during a summer stay. The bath room water pressure is also very low which could be quite troublesome when having a shower. Wifi is availble however it is not really stable in the room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Just about 5mins walk from Central station, 2mins walk from redlight district and 5mins walk to Dam square. The stairs are very steep, there's no elevator, so it was quite a challenge to lug my 15kg luggage up the stairs to level 2. The hotel is near to the old Church, so every 15mins the bell chimes, which can get quite on your nerves after some time. Wifi is intermittent. Room is clean and modern. Noise level is quite high on general. It can get rather sleazy at night but the street which the hotel main door is on is quiet. There's no airconditioned, so I wont recommend it for summer.

Check out time is early at 10.30am. We checked out 25mins late and was charged 7.5euros extra which I felt was petty for them not to waive it off. The website says, late checkout till 1300 is possible, but they are actually extremely strict about it.

Notes for non-locals: There's no map provided during our stay. Do try the "Voted Holland No.1 fries" across the street along Damrak. It's comes in purple cups and easy to be spot.
