“Horrible Experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

My bed sheets had not been changed and had been slept in by a woman who had bleed on the sheets from her menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, the bed was made and I didn't discover this to midway through the night when I got up to go to the bathroom. There were three single beds in this room. I said to my wife, who was as shocked as I was, that maybe they were stains from another time, which she said in a very knowing fashion, that no, these sheets had not been washed! Fortunately, there was another bed for me to sleep in. Unfortunately, the bed was broken. Other than that, a great location and good value.

I used to go to Amsterdam for the Week-end, I have already been 3 times in this hotel and each time, it was perfect.
The service is great, the front office agent is very nice always smiling and happy to see you here.
The complimentary breakfast is perfect to start a good days in this beautiful city.

Last time, we were udgrated to a canal view room and I really appreciate that, the view was incredible.

Room Tip: Canal View is awesome !!!!!!

We stayed in a canal view room with a bathroom.
Check in was easy, and we had our bags stored in the cupboard - as ours were big bags, it was easy to find them again however if you had small bags they would quickly get lost.
Our room was on the 3rd floor - very basic amenities however the view was simply amazing!
Wifi is free when in reception and the women working the bar & reception were very lovely & welcoming.
We would happily stay here again.

Had to stay here for work because all other hotels full. Absolutely horrific room like a prison cell - one dim bulb, too dark to read. Filthy and everything was broken - TV, lights, soap dispenser. Stained towels and bed linen. Is hard to believe the pics here are the same hotel I went to. The bar was perfectly nice everything else was terrible. And it cost 150 euro a night yet was worse than any hostel I stayed in backpacking.

We stayed at the Old Quarter for a hen weekend, we booked for 18 and everyone enjoyed, rooms were clean and adequate for what we wanted. Was in great location central for everywhere we wanted to go. Staff were excellent from the moment we arrived until we departed really friendly and couldnt do enough for us. Service was great at the bar and food was excellent. This has to be the cheapest hotel that I have stayed in and probably the best staff. (have stayed in many big hotels and staff not friendly). When we return to Amsterdam would definately be booking the Old Quarter.

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and were more than happy with our stay. We had a canal view room which was small but clean and comfortable with a small bathroom with a shower. It included an adequate breakfast of bacon and eggs or full English breakfast. It was an excellent location and was close to railway station, all kinds of restaurants and fast food, "coffee shops", and many attractions. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to be in the bar/restaurant there where the food and service was very good. We would not hesitate to stay there again. I would recommend a canal view room to get you away from the street noise.

This hotel is in a good location, within 10 minutes walk from the central station and lots of bars, restaurants around. In fact, check-in was located inside a restaurant reception area.

The room was on the 3rd floor in the building opposite the restaurant where I checked in. It was tiny and had a double bed which took up most of the room. Furnishings looked cheap and basic, but usable. Small tv with so-so reception. Surprisingly big and clean bathroom with a toilet, shower and sink.

Soundproofing wasn’t great. The area is full of bars and restaurants, and at night you could hear people talking and laughing on the streets till late at night. Bad news if you are a light sleeper.

Breakfast is prepared fresh at the restaurant, with bacon, eggs and toast. It’s so nice to have freshly-prepared breakfast.

They had a store room where you can store your luggage if you came too early before check-in or if you still wanted to wander around the city after check-out. A word of caution, if you are one of the first to put your bags in, you could come back at a later time to a full store room, and you would had to dig through the mountain of bags to locate your bag underneath (haha!).

In short: good location, light sleepers beware!

Room Tip: Higher floors less noise
