“Ignorant staff!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Pros: Cheap, central.

Cons: Dont expect a clean room, shared bathroom smells like death. Staff keeps coming in the room with no warning, at any hour, just checking that we're not smoking.

So i smoked on the little terrace, but even then he threatned with calling the police and have me arrested for smoking... CIGARETTES!! If you come to Amsterdam to have a good time, trust me, this is not the place.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

A friend and i travelled to amsterdam to celebrate a friends 21st birthday and stayed in hotel princess for 3 nights. You enter the "hotel" through a steep staircase to reception where the guy on reception was quite friendly. We had to pay with cash because their card machine was broken? This was a bit of a nuisance. We then had to climb the dangerously steep staircase to the bedrooms. I booked a double room with 2 single beds and our room was by no means a double. It had a bunk bed right at the door as you walk in there was a desk a small t.v a sink and a mirror you would not want to be closterphobic because the room was so small. The bathroom was so small when you closed the door your knees were touching the door and the smell of urine in the toilet was awful. The showers were clean to be fair but there was no towels anywhere to be found. We were awoken one morning by a young guy just walking into our room. He simply had his key card for the door opened it and went to walk in when i sprung up from the top bunk he simply just apologised and walked back out saying he was in the wrong room! I think he was the cleaner we had seen the first day we arrived but i did not like someone to just freely walk into our room without knocking first. For the rest of our stay we felt quite unsafe. The location was very good but unfortunately this was the only positive i could point out. It is situated just around the corner from leidseplein which was great however all in all we did not enjoy our stay and i would not recommend it to anybody.

as long as you don't mind that the low cost of the hotel doesn't include that your room and the shared bathrooms get cleaned daily, it is a very fine hotel. and we didn't expect such a good breakfast for that price. we had a nice stay.

The room was filthy, filthy, filthy, and it smelled bad. I wasn't allowed to open the window to air out the room, because of "danger of breaking the window". The towels were also dirty.

The man in the reception was not very friendly. I guess he tried to be funny, but I felt like he was making a fool of us. The credit card -machine didn't work so I had to pay with cash, which screwed my travel budget.
The wireless internet connection didn't work. The toilet was out of paper when I needed to go and there wasn't anyone at the reception to give me toiletpaper.

I guess I wasn't "happy" enough to feel comfortable. The location next to Voondel park is good. I only stayed two nights.

I WILL NEVER COME AGAIN!
