“DO NOT TRUST”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

*Do not trust this hotel* We got to the hotel to be told that they had cancelled our booking and given our room to someone else because the price we were quoted on hostelworld was wrong. They told me that an e-mail had been sent to inform me, i later found out that it was sent the evening before we flew out. They had taken it upon themselves to book us into a new hotel at a much higher price than we had agreed to pay at damrak. Asked for deposit back but tehy said its nothing to do with them

Room Tip: Do not stay here

The access to the rooms in the building was extremely difficult. Many steep stairs that were not even straight up. With heavy bags it was really a problem. The evening sleeping was not very good as there are doors in the hallways that the other guest were shutting all night. If you opened your window to get some cool air, we heard men talking like they were in our room with us. Not a good night sleep after a 20 hour trip from the US.

I stayed here for 2 nights, booked a single room and was pleased to find that the room was clean, had a double bed, and a clean bathroom.
For location it can't be beat as you are near everything.
I would stay here again..... Great location... clean room... No frills. Free wifi

There are several hotels with similar names around here. The one this refers to is Budget Hotel Damrak Inn.

Its a few minutes walk from the station, right in the middle of everything and walking distance of most of Amsterdam's sights, so the location is great if that is what you need.

The hotel is the upper floors of a shop in an old building with extremely steep and narrow staircases to access rooms which are perhaps not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

My room was very small but adequately equipped with a clean bathroom, a television and slightly erratic wi-fi.

It doesn't do breakfast or any other food.

Room Tip: The fourth and fifth floors are a very long climb

We stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend it. As per all the other reviews this hotel does have steep stairs and a smell of chips due to it being above a chip shop but this wouldn't stop me staying again. Rooms were basic but very clean and has everything you would need. Staff were very helpful and friendly. If you want somewhere that is cheap (for the excellent location), basic to sleep then look no further.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Damrak. The location is excellent, just a short walk to Amsterdam Central and right in Dam Square. The facilities are basic, but, having said this, you have a comfortable and clean bed to come back to. I was on the top floor, there was a balcony which didn't offer exceptional views, but was a balcony none the less. I didn't find myself awoken by any noise from outside or other rooms at any point so was happy with the sleep quality I got.

I would come back here, excellent location for the price, just don't expect too many luxuries.

Room Tip: Top floor room 51 has a balcony.
