“Hostelly, but nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Old Quarter fills a nice role between hostel and hotel.

Or more, a hostel where you only share rooms with folks you knew beforehand. A good base camp for heading out into Centrum.
Really easy to get to from Centraal station too, and from there walk out into the Red Light.

Staff were very friendly, if spread a bit thin. They were all good at their role, and in general.

Room Tip: Get something at the very back with a canal room if you want an en-suite, but personally I find the...

Stayed here with a group of friends for 2 nights. The location is perfect, with great bars around the area (2 minutes away from the hotel). Walking distance from the train station so we didn't even have to take a taxi to get to the hotel. Places to eat around the area at very affordable prices. Definitely recommend it!

Stayed here with a group of friends in June 2014, we were allocated a room in the block across the street. The facilities were very basic but the room was kept clean. Got a good nights sleep when required, but still a great location for the bars/cafe's in the centre of Amsterdam. Only downside was the group of gentlemen standing adjacent to the front door at night who could have passed as extra's from Scarface. They were rather annoying, but if you don't make eye contact they'll leave you alone however wouldn't have felt comfortable if I was on my own. Hotel staff were great, checkout was 11am and our flight wasn't until 10pm and they were happy for me to snooze towards the rear of the bar.

In my opinion, the location is the best thing about this Hotel! however the rooms are average and a bit old....getting to your room is also difficult as they have extremely steep stairs!!!

Also it gets a bit difficult to sleep at night with all the noise from the street. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

It has to be said that the location of the hotel is brilliant. Short walk from the station and in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam.

That and the friendly man on reception is about as good as it gets. We had a twin room on the top floor and it was "cosy to say the least". I would advise you check the details of your room if you can as we feel we stayed in a hostel over hotel (See photo)

Showers are communal and couldn't shower for too long as the water then seeps outside into the hall. Towels weren't changed once and wifi didn't work on the top floor, despite paying for it.

Room Tip: Avoid top floors if you want wifi connection and make a point of asking about details of your room...
