This hotel is ideally located for visiting Amsterdam. Whilst basic, my hotel room looked exactly like the picture on the website (there have been some reviews stating otherwise). I stayed in a single room, so maybe the variations in room may exist for doubles.
The staff at the reception area in the Pub were always were friendly and helpful. Although, like some other reviewers I’m still not sure how the security works…you request the keys to a particular room number and whoever is behind the bar hands it over.... often the staff would change…so how could they verify that they were giving the key to the right person?
There is so much to do in this area and everything seemed to be a short walk away. It is in the heart of the red light district with many canals and restaurants very close by. I arrived from the main train station and walked to the hotel in around 10 – 15 minutes. Whilst there is a lot of noise and action outside the hotel, I could hardly hear anything from my room.
The steps to the rooms are very narrow and steep…not a huge issue for me, but would require careful attention if carrying full size luggage.
When you consider the location, tidiness of the rooms, and friendliness of the staff for the price charged, this hotel is an absolute bargain.
When next in Amsterdam, I will be back!
