“Not too bad. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

The room (double private) was crazy small and very hot... But apart from that it was ok. Clean and outdated. Staff were very helpful. Bike rental was very cheap and convenient. Easy enough access to central or anywhere else via bus/tram. Supermarket close.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a six week trip around europe. The hotel is very reasonably priced, we had breakfast included in our room rate which was great as there was such a huge selection and was great value.

The hotel itself is fairly dated but the rooms and bathrooms are new and very modern. we had a triple bed room, which was fine for us as we were only staying 2 nights and were out all day but there was very little room to do anything.

The Hotel itself isnt in the city centre. it is a tram ride away, approx 15mins, but this didnt really bother us.

Staff could be a bit more friendly but overall it was a very good stay and i would certainly recomend it to others.

Nice hotel for a couple of nights. Very good location tram and train stations near, 5 minutes walking, 7 minutes until the city center by tram. Supermarket and coffees near by the hotel. The staff was friendly.

Very small room on the outside of Amsterdam.
Breakfast was extra and not worth the money.
One staff member was very friendly, others not so much.
Bike hire is available which was a plus.

Comfortable beds though, and a private bathroom was nice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

in a city, where Hotels charge so much, I tought Flipper Hotel was a reasonably good priced deal. The room (single, with Bathroom on 3rd floor), was indeed small, and likewise the bathroom sink. It was a bit of a challenge to shave/brush teeth- but not a terrible burden as someone described. If you are planning to stay much in the room while in such a great town like Ámsterdam, perhaps you should book elsewhere. But if small is not a terrible issue, then you would think this hotel is OK or above. The personnel at the front desk are very helpful at all times. Location is also a plus!! I did not see any dirt or mold or lack of cleaningness in my room. on the contrary, it seemed well kept and new. TV was a bit sketchy...

Room Tip: staircase is small and a bit steep.
