“Dirty and expensive!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We wandered in there looking for a room - we had heard that they had always loose rooms, and we got one. We were really disappointed when we saw our room. Our beds were bunk beds with stains in the sheet. We could see handprints on the walls. Our sink was dirty. You share shower and bathroom with the other rooms down the hall. The bathroom was so unclean! Most disgusting thing was the shower; use shoes if you go there, I saw a cigarette on the floor and it looked really old.
Although service was OK. The breakfast was really good.
Would not recommend you to stay there...

We just left the hotel. We got there yesterday at 2am and the guy was really nice. The room was just ok, but breakfast was nice. The guy at night told us we could leave our luggage there after the check in. When we checked out, the guy of the morning wanted to charge us for leaving our bags! We are REALLY disappointed!!! Though the poor conditions of the place, we were happy because the staff was really helpfull. And then we had to deal with a stupid staff saying it was our mistake to not ask HOW MANY HOURS we could leave our luggage, because for 1 hour it was for free. Don't go there!!!!

stayed here in october 2012 it is nothing more than a cell. metal bunkbeds with a sink in the room you have to share showers with other rooms and the showers are disgusting.

120 euro a night. on several occasions we came back to find the owners snooping about our room.

avoid at all costs you would be safer and more comfortable sleeping rough

The place is really bad and really expansive like everything inAmsterdam. To sleep in a place like that is enough 20 euro for a double room not 100 as we pay.Room not clean,we had an ashtray still dirty,they just dropped out the content without wash it.Anyway for a really short term is ok(max 3 night,not more).Position very good but very expansive for the service you receive.The staff are so helpless and careless and they used to ask money for the stay based on how much the city is full of people in that period.Years ago,while Amsterdam was really full like just in the past years was and all the hotels was full,we decided to try again at Jimmy,better than sleep out of city, we ask a doubleroom knowing the price was 100 euro per night.THEY ASK US 600 EURO A NIGHT, OF COURSE WE KNEW THE PLACE AND JUST LAUGHED ABOUT THAT AND SAID GOODBYE BUT THEY ARE NOT GOOD PEOPLE, just to know

we arrived in amsterdam late about 815pm, without a hotel booked. We wandered down the main 'drag' for hotels and came upon Hotel Jimmy. I have no idea where the low prices came from but at the door they asked for 180.00 euros with/shower and 210.00 for ensuite. The double room was pitiful and stank. the stairs were impossible to navigate. Unreal.we declined the room prefering to take our chances on a few others in the area.

Room Tip: try the victoria hotel, much better price and quality

We made a clear verbal agreement on the price, agreed to pay half in the next day after we get a chance to withdraw the money. Employees appear in the morning, harassing and yelling at us to pay a higher price. The boss hid himself from the conversation, using the employee as a proxy. I recommend staying away.

Courteous service and excellent location is specially important when we come to several nights. When I go on vacation I do not often be at the hotel but only for sleep and the hotel provides all that is required at the basic level is the most important, I'll be there again soon ...
