“It´s clean, it´s cheap, but NOISY”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

They advertise themselves as being the best one-star hotel in Amsterdam, and that´s probably true. The location is very central, the staff´s friendly and the shared bathroom was of surprisingly high standards. Your typical basic continental breakfast was served in a dingy cafe next door. Like most basic hotels in Amsterdam the staircase is steep and there is no elevator, but a friendly and very fit staff member offered to carry my 23 kg bag to the first floor. Compared to other hotels in the same price range, this place in my opinion, offers great value for money, the only problem is the noise.There is a nightclub downstairs in the same building that plays extremely loud, trashy music until late, 3 am or so. I got free earplugs from reception, but it was still loud enough for me to hear which Shakira song was on. If you plan on staying out late every night or you are hearing impaired, or sleep like a rock, this place is a bargain.

Room Tip: Second floor is less noisy

good location . standard of room was also good.

Overall the staff were helpful, on the last day i requested a wake up call to leave, and didnt get one. I complained and instead of an apology i got a "there is no record " and then the lady on reception advised that i actually did have a wake up call. - i wasnt high, and im a deep sleeper , but i would have woken if i had a call. There were no apologies. However, other than this i actually really liked the hotel and if this incident didnt happen I would have given the hotel a higher rating.

it is loud on weekends - so if you are not looking for that , dont pick this hotel. on thursday and friday night it wasnt too bad.

Room Tip: request the highest floor possible!

I know Amsterdam is pricier than other cities, but we were pretty disappointed with this hotel. The price (80 euros) seemed like a lot for what we got. People mention the location, which is central but really rowdy with the drunk college crowd. Lots of noise in the room, weird smell throughout, small room that was *very* stuffy (even warm, and that on a rather cool day), could hear people coming and going, mosquitoes in the room. Yeah, I'd say find a short-term rental for a longer stay, more bang for your buck, because decent rooms in Amsterdam fetch a high price. Lesson learned!

This hotel is very centrally located but has gone down hill since I had stayed there the last time. The carpets were not clean and we had a problem with the mini bar. Very good location but this is all I can say. The restaurant attached "flo" is still very good but the service has slowed. Pity as this was a fab destination in the past

Room Tip: As this is in the middle of the entertainment district try not to get a room facing the square

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with our toddler. The stairs (as mentioned in other reviews) were challenging with the stroller. We were street side and the noise was loud but not disruptive. There was a lovely concert going on that we could watch from our window (room 12). The decor was lovely and the rooms were very clean but small (as we expected). The staff was very helpful. The fire alarm did go off in the middle of the first night because guests were smoking outside their window. The second night we were woken up by a staff member that climbed onto the overhang for the Smoke shop below to reach our window. There was a problem with the door downstairs and he was unable to get back inside. We opened the door for him but it scared us to death and it was challenging to get our toddler back to sleep after that. Breakfast was fine but it was served in the cafe/bar next door that reeked of stale cigarette smoke. The square itself is a great location. A large new Starbucks and lots of quick, take away foods are right outside. Despite our few disruptions and breakfast, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Only stay on the street side if you are not a light sleeper.

We loved the hotel. It was very central (15 minute walk from Central station) and in a much better part of town, in front of a very nice enchanting park, away from the very busy, dirty, and crowded red light district, But close enough to visit it.
The rooms were very clean and new. Staff very helpful like my remote control not working properly and being replaced right away or having our luggage safely stored while waiting for check in. The shared bathrooms are very clean and well kept and never busy or engaged given there's 2 per 4 rooms floor.
The only downfall is the coffee shop and 2 clubs downstairs which specially during the weekends can be very noisy but not if you are on the 4th floor like we did.
Prices are extremely cheap for central Amsterdam and breakfast simple enough but very nice and more than enough.

Room Tip: Even though stairs are steep (but so are any other central old building hotel) try to stay as high a...

Very clean and well located although a bit too pricey. Ideal if you do not mind the noise (party goes on until very late in Rembrandt Square)
