“Cheap, central, clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Visited with 4 friends, stayed in a room for 5. The rooms were clean and beds really comfortable. Clean towels & bedding each day. Small bathroom.
Very central location.
The staff were relatively friendly and no more attitude or anything than most Dutch have towards English folks. I lost my boarding pass and the guy on reception printed me another one off so that was pretty helpful. We were also allowed to leave luggage in a large cupboard all day.
If you want luxury and food don't come here but if you want something cheap and clean its perfect.

Stayed here with 4 friends. We managed to get a room for five so we could all be together. The location was fine and the room was fine for what we wanted - cheap and cheerful. We were within walking distances from most places and if not the tram stop isn't far away. We also walked from the train station.

You shouldn't be called inn if you don't have a pub on the ground floor, right?. They had a chips shop!

The hotel receptionists couldn't even speak Dutch. Amsterdam is still the Netherlands, right?

They insisted I left the room keys in the reception, but my sister (who they have never seen cause we did not arrive at the same time) asked the keys and they didn't even check who she was, so off it goes for safety. The room was incredibly tiny, so was the whole hotel.

There was some steep stairs to the second and third floors where we had to do crazy maneuvers to get the bags upstairs. The place was even smaller than Anne Frank's annex appartment!

Avoid at all costs! If out of options take the train station benches instead!

Room Tip: Somewhere else!

Very good location, near train station, red light district, walking distance from a lot of places if tourist interest. No breakfast. wifi a little slow for Amsterdam speed. Rooms are clean and bathroom is okay. The only real bad thing are the stairs to go to the rooms, specially with big bags. I could stay here again when coming back to Amsterdam.
