Very tiny room. Everything was properly cleaned. Staff were friendly. Toilet on my floor was very awkward and annoying. Breakfast was very basic. Expensive for what you get, but it is Amsterdam and location is perfect!

Located at one of the main tram route. By taking tram No 13 or 17, then stop at Westernmarkt. Have a short walk across the river. Next to Sara's Pancake House. Surprised to see the steep stairs. It was interesting though. Not suitable for family with little kids or people with big luggages. Fortunate enough to have one of the employee helped taking care of the luggages.

Overall, it is a quaint looked budget hotel with basic clean beds and bathroom. Basic breakfast.
Suitable for people with budget and no high expectation since it is a one star hotel. Easily accesible with public transport. Near to multiple souvenirs shop, rent-bicycle shops and supermarket.

We got a room on the 3rd floor of this hotel which has incredibly steep and narrow wooden staircases and the hotel staff refused to help us even a little bit in lugging our luggage upto our room. The stairs were not wide enough for even a child to walk up without the risk of falling!

The room was not super either but ok for a short stay. We had stayed for 2 days, so it was ok.

The breakfast was a joke with only bread n jam and coffee. I was lucky to get 3 eggs but other inmates were not.

There is no wifi.

Lastly booking.com had confirmed the hotel's claim of 24 hour check in which was the only reason for us to choose it as we were reaching Amsterdam early morning, but the on getting there the hotel told us that check in was at 11 am and hence we had to wait. Was quite bad as our 3 year old daughter had fallen asleep and we were dog tired and jet lagged after a 13 hour direct flight from Singapore!

The only positive is the hotel's location, which is walking distance from Dam square. But there are no supermarkets or eateries around the hotel which was quite inconvenient.
