4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Remember the price and don't set unrealistic expectations. The hotel isn't far from the centre and is well connected via trams. Location is quiet. Not many places around but the cafe opposite and Japanese restaurant on the corner are nice enough.
The rooms are an ok-size and clean with towels and toiletries and hairdryers. There is also free Wi-Fi which is a big bonus.
First impression was negative as the hotel manager was very abrupt and shouted for us to leave the door open, but he kind of redeemed himself later with directions and information.
The rooms smell a bit of weed but hey, you're in Amsterdam!

Not bad at all for the price. Could be cleaner. Towels were torn and bed sheets had stains. Staff were very friendly and the location is perfect. Tram noise from outside was my real issue with this hotel.

The hotel is quite small. The rooms are tiny but the bathrooms - even tinier. The carpet in my room was extremely dirty - it was hoovered but there were lots of old dirty stains. The pillows were very uncomfortable.

On the other hand the staff was very nice and helpful. The location of the hotel is very good and the price is a good value.
