“worth staying at”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

Was pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Hotel Bema. The staff was extremely helpful, even to helping carry our bags up the 59 stairs to the reception area. We had a large, quiet room with full bath, and the real surprise was the free breakfast inside our room. We will definitely stay there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2011

The steep stairs at the entrance look daunting at first glance, but myself and gf never had a problem with them, even after all day walking and several drinks. The room was large, clean and warm. We were concerned about the shared toilet but never had to wait to use it, and it was always spotless...only negative would be that the toilet was rather compact.
The breakfasts were fine, nothing bad about them and were delivered into the room with no hassle. The hotel is located in the museum district with good tram stops working a 30 second walk, and a nice open park to walk around.
I would highly recommend the hotel and location to others wanting to visit Amsterdam.

Stayed here for 4 days. From the outside it looks like an old dutch warehouse but when you walk in its like WOW. Low budget for such big rooms with high ceiling and venetian style decorated. The location was perfect, its very close to the Van Gogh museum and Vondelpark and you can easily take any tram from the hotelstreet to amsterdam centre. The service is good, well variated breakfast on bed, more than you can eat. View is amazing and the rooms are clean and i cant stop saying how big they were.. The only thing that could bother people staying here is that the bathroom is very small. When you arrive you get the key of the entrance and you will not get bothered when you come in, so its a nice and private feeling you have here. Overall you will not regret staying here!

It had the perfect location. Walking distance to the Van Gogh Museum and the park near it had the best view: very relaxing and "I AMsterdam" was within my grasp. =) The Fatboy burger sold by the park was VERY good! =) Good breakfast and good value for the money considering that it is Amsterdam. =)

The flight of stairs though was quite a challenge! =)

We stayed not in a hotel itself but in an apartment associated with this hotel, so we have not seen the hotel rooms. This comment is about a particular apartment that we stayed in. It is located at 78 1e Con.Huygenstraat.

Location was excellent. The room itself was reasonably comfortable, the kitchen was functional. The heater was not adequate enough and we were a bit freezing there. The bathroom strongly smelled with the cat's urine (maybe from a previous tenant?) but as long as we had the bathroom door closed and didn't spend much time there, it was survivable.

But the main issue was with the design of the shower and its curtain. No matter how hard you try, it would flood the bathroom floor every time you take a shower and, unless you are extremely careful and fast, the rest of an apartment as well.

Once again, the hotel rooms themselves may be great, and the other apartments may be great but I am writing specifically about this apartment, and in this particular case, unfortunately I can NOT recommend it.

Long steep flights of stairs. Friendly staff. A good breakfast served to the room on a tray each morning. If you want a double room don't stay in Room 2 - it's tiny - apart from the bed a small table and a washbasin there was barely enough floor room for our luggage. We asked to be moved after a couple of nights and went to Room 6 which was lovely - much bigger with an en-suite shower room and lots of space. For the money we thought it was good value.
