3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

hotel torenzicht is not for the faint of heart its situated smack in the middle of the rld but i found it ok for 65 euros a night and that includes a nice breakfast. if you do not mind the shared bathrooms and a basic room this fits the bill very well in expensive amsterdam. also the hotel bar is good . angus.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Pros;
Great room
Great breakfast (English breakfast buffet, sausages, bacon, eggs, beans, mushrooms, also cheese, ham)
Location right in the heart of the red light district
Top floor attic room fantastic
Great little shower

Cons
Its unfair to include stairs in the cons, all Amsterdam hotels in traditional buildings have steep stairs, if you don't like this, don't come to Amsterdam, or choose one of the souless modern hotels on the outskirts.
The WiFi did not work as advertised in the top room, how many rooms are affected by the lack of WiFi i don't know.
