“Nice staff, very basic accommodation, weed-smell”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Location of the hotel is perfect, only 5 minutes walk from the main Station. Staff was very friendly and helpful, bed-sheets and towels were clean. We had a room with 3 beds and it was VERY basic, with a sink and a view to a wall. Not a big problem because we only paid 125 GBP per night, BUT....there was no air condition and we had a hot summer-night, guests beside us must have smoked weed and our room and the corridor smelled of it. Walls were thin and we could hear the TV-show the other guest were watching and the loud laughter of the girls next door. We had a shared toilet and a shared shower. The latter had mildew on the ceiling, was claustrophobic and smelly. Because of the weed-smell and the heat hubby, out teenager-son and I spent most of the night outside the hotel on the bench. Breakfast-buffet was basic with only one cup of coffee each, several milk- and cereal-options, toast out of its bag, cold hard eggs, some continental sausage and cheeses. If you like the smell of weed and if you don´t mind getting high on weed-smell, if you don´t mind noises and hot sticky air, then this hotel is fine. You can walk to town, to the station, to the red light district. If you are looking for a restful, quiet place for the whole family, choose something else.

Little to say, the hotel has a great location, the service is ok, rooms are good, it is not expensive at all and the staff charming. Open 24 hours a day. So yes, very pleased and nothing to complain about.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. Service was so and so. Rooms tiny and filthy (thank god I had clean linen). You could hear every little sound from the corridor to the room. The "breakfast" consisted of some old bread and juice or milk.

Really, we thought that it will be not so nice as it is ! Rooms are really clean, service in the room every morning :) Double bed actually was very very comfortable ( I would like to have it in my room ). Even though that bathroom and shower is shared with other guests but it was unexpectedly clean. About the staff - they were really friendly. And location its just PERFECT. Everything is near ! Next time when will visit Amsterdam will stay in the same hotel !

We wanted somewhere cheap and central. Every other hotel was well over 100 quid a night. We stayed here and the location was brilliant surrounded by restaurants bars and of course coffee shops. As the location was so good we barely stayed in. Our room was tiny but we had a sink and a super comfy bed. The corridors are horrific as you walk to your room with wall paper falling off and wires coming out everywhere but the room was fine. Painted white and very basic but we only wanted to get our heads down. The bathroom was shared and the shower was amazing. Toilet was separate to the wet room. Every shower we went for it was spot less until the end of the night but we just rinsed the floor down with the shower and then in the morning it was spot less again.
There was mice bobbing about everywhere, but what do you expect in a city??? Particularly if your above McDonalds.
