“Amsterdam Antics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The location of this hotel is superb. Breakfast was adequate although the room we ate in was also the reception.Rooms were very dated, old beds,windows,wardrobe, our bed side lights and television did not work. The bed however was comfortable and our shower was always hot.The staff were very friendly with the exception of one lady on Friday night who told us at 8 30pm if we sat in reception we would have to be quiet because she was working?! The previous night there were 3 young lads drinking litre bottles of vodka in there,she was also working that night?!Not suitable for people with mobility problems the stairs were very steep.Within walking distance of everything!

The pictures that are in the description is definitely not as they are in the reality. The hotel is old but with the only one that it makes that hotel "good" is the location. just in the center. Tv dosent work, Just some time we hade hot water for shower, the receptionist actually I believe that he was the owner as I understand was very very root in many ways. The breakfast room have just 2 tables and as you can understand it can't served all the recidents and the breakfast was very very poor.

Its cheap, the location of the hotel is great and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are very small and quite dated. To charge your mobile phone you either had to use the adapter in the bathroom or the one on top of the wardrobe. The air conditioning was broken when we stayed and the temperature was in the 80s so trying to get a good nights sleep was difficult.

GREAT location, clean room, good breakfast, small price. It is very close to RL district, but not there, close to Rembrant square, Dam square, central station and very easy to find (on main street- straight ahead from central station 5 min). There is a tram station just across the street.

I stayed at this hotel a year ago, and thank God only for 1 night! The pictures on the website are misleading. They are far far away from reality. I had a room on the 1st floor with a view of a brick wall and the room was so dark, dirty and dusty. I didn't wanna sleep on the bed sheet, didn't use the blanket either. Who knows when they washed it! The bathroom was so small and I could not even freely move in it. I didnt plan earlier to go to Amsterdam and all the other hotels were fully booked. Therefore it was my last choice, with price €120/night.
The staff seemed so unorganized, because at first she took us to a room where it looked occupied by someone because there were bags on the floor and shirts on the bed. She was confused so she checked again then finally she gave us our room which looked just as terrible as the occupied one.
My tip: Prepare earlier to book hotels in Amsterdam and do not choose this hotel. It is like a fraud: two stars hotel but looks like a half star hotel with price just as three stars hotel.

Stayed here a few times now and can't fault the place.The rooms are basic but warm and cosy,clean towels every day,hot powerful shower and a flat screen TV with a few English-speaking channels.Breakfast is continental with loads of choice.There is always a member is staff working and you leave your key when going out,late at night the check your name against the room before handing out the key.The hotel is well placed to do any sightseeing with a tram stop outside the door,it's a 5min walk to dam square.Will use this hotel again the next time we return.x

Before going to Amsterdam, my boyfriend and I read all of the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give this hotel a shot with not expecting it to be anything more than a good place to sleep. We were overall pleased and realized that most of the negative reviews had a lot larger expectations for a place that was a reasonable price and 2 stars. I thought our room was clean, good sized and great for 4 days. It also had a working heater and a good view, which was worth the "steep stairs." I'd say if you have a hard time with stairs then request a room on the first floor but we didn't mind being upstairs. The only thing I didn't love was that we had booked a double room so we could sleep together (instead of a hostel) and our bed was two twin beds pushed together with a sheet over them so it was kind of annoying at night. But, breakfast was good, most of the staff were so friendly (better than our friend's hostel down the road), our room was cozy and good for sleeping and the location was great. Definitely worth the money and a consideration if you're looking for a good, warm and safe place to sleep for a few nights!

Room Tip: This might not be the place for you if you have a lot of luggage, don't do well with stairs or w...
