“shocking”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Tbh i would avoid this hotel. the room is tiny nothing like the pictures on the internet. played music till 1pm at night. the stairs are very steep! the shower is just a trickle. the bed well its like they just put a mattress on the floor terrible!! The tv didnt even work kept switching its self off. so much for the good views, outside our window was another building, with builders from 8-5pm banging hammering shocking we wasnt even warn about it. The staff are nice but the hotel i wouldnt even both its like a squatters yard.

Location of this place is good. However, the photos make it look way better than it actually is. It is a dirty hole. I'm so glad we were only stuck there for two nights. The stairs are also very dangerous.

Room Tip: Don't go here.

Me and my boyfriend go to Amsterdam every year and for the last couple of years we have stayed here - although the stairs are very steep (which isnt a problem for us) the location couldn't be better its in the middle of everything and its in walking distance from the train station abd ferry drop off point and it's fairly priced too - the rooms are clean and the staff are friendly we will definitely be going back to this hotel and would recommend it to ppl who don't mind steep stairs ☺

Very nice staff - especially Naömi and Marc. I came alone as my fried didn't make ii, but I didn't feel alone with these guys!. The room was ok even it was small (and not that nice). BUT the location was great and so was the price. If I go to Amsterdam again I will book this hotel. :-)

Stayed at Frisco for two nights, first were the stairs which are the steepest we have ever seen but we had and a giggle getting our case up. I wouldn't recommend for anyone who struggles with heights or steep stairs. Our room was pretty small and basic for the price we paid(€79 per night) the bathroom is actually a wet room which isn't stated anywhere I could see, shower pressure was terrible which just wasn't enjoyable. On the plus side I would rate it very good for its central location, so handy for travelling, food and drink. We only spoke to one member of staff and she was so lovely and friendly. Definitely for backpackers or just staying one night. )

Me and my husband spent 5 nights in Frisco. Inn.
We were very pleased and loved the place. It׳s location is in the center of town. 500 m walk from dam square. Perfect! Walking out of the hotel and everything is there. The central station, Damm square, the shopping street, a lot of foods and restaurants .
The room was small but very clean and pleasant. The staff was very very nice and helped in everything. We loved staying here and will defenetly stay there again.
The only thing we didn't like was the smoke that came into the room when the window was left open, because of the smoking guests down stairs. But what is Amsterdam without smoking...
