“too noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

not far from the centre

We spend just one night in this hotel and it was Sunday. It was imposible to sleep! Hotel located on the square of clubs and pubs. So it was very noise. We were living early in the morning and ask staff if they can make breakfast "to go", but they refused=(

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

We booked this place because it was central and good value at £176 for 2 nights. We stayed an hour and left.
It smelt of vomit and Swede, the balcony (advertised) was the space on top of a roof filled with fag butts, urine, lost shoes, empty bottles and general crap. I have never walked outof a place until now. We didn't even try to get a refund, honestly we were happy to pay that not to stay there.
If your only intention in Amsterdam is to find a place under cover you can spew, book away but if u hav any concerns for hair in your bed, dirty scuff marks on the wall and a toilet that smells like 5 years of regret and puke, this might be your match made in heaven. Don't have the same experience! Em and John :)

We stayed there for one week.
Right next to the pubs and clubs so there is a lot of noise.
When you enter the building you have to climb up a steep flight of steps. The room we stayed in had mould on the walls in the bathroom. The breakfast was just bread with an option to toast it, and jams and coffee. The owner being Chinese was not friendly and can't speak any English. I wouldn't recommend this Hotel and it's not value for your money!

After reading poor reviews I still decided to book this hotel as it was super cheap and very central. Our room had everything we needed. It was clean and a good. It's true that the stairs are steep and there is some noise from the clubs but I would definitely stay here again
