We booked the Old Quarter as we were on a lad's weekend & wanted to be close to Central Station, Dam Square & of course the red light district too.
It really is the perfect location from Central Station, approx 5 mins away & very easy to find.
Check in was very quick & we were all in our rooms within 10 mins of arrival ( there were 14 of us, so very efficient indeed.
We paid a little extra & got a cracking view of canal at the rear, looking across to Central Station & a slightly bigger room too. The room was basic, (but hey it's a 2 star & €360 for 3 nights based on me & my mate sharing, worked out at €180 Euros each, which is very cheap by Amsterdam rates!) Best thing for me in our room was our shower, excellent & as hot & cold as you'd want it. Also included for our €180 was & breakfast, this consisted of scrambled eggs & bacon, with tea/coffee & toast. For a further €5 a full English is available, in my eyes though the eggs & bacon is adequate, as a couple of hot dogs, some mushrooms & a handful of beans don't justify the €5. That minor gripe apart I couldn't fault the Old Quarter at all.
I must give a special mention to the staff @ reception, on the bar & also in the kitchen. I've read some negative comments on trip advisor, but we found them to be incredibly friendly & helpful.
One last thing, they'd live local jazz & funk bands on all through our stay & would recommend a couple of Heineken's taking in the vibe!
