“Euro holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Location is everything and if the Red Light District is your idea of a fun time, then this hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the RLD..yes, the steps are very steep and it is difficult to manage heavy cases, but the rooms were clean and secure. The beds were comfy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Room 8 has a great view of everything going on and overlooks the canal. Hard to understand someone complaining about the steps in a 100 year old building. It is what it is...we would absolutely stay here again.

i have stayed at the royal taste twice now and its fantastic they welcome you like you are family and jan and monique are the best really down to earth people and would do anything for you. our first stay here was like we have known them for years even the bar staff offered to take us around amserdam to show us where all the clubs and clubs are which i thought was really nice of them. by far this is the best place to stay in amsterdam its in the heart of the pubs and redlight district so everything is on your doorstep. rooms are very clean and basic which was great couldnt ask for anymore really. to some it up fantastic hotel amazeing staff and its a happy place to be so i would recommend this place to anyone i will be staying here everytime i visit amsterdam without a doubt see you all soon ;-b

I have stayed at this hotel many times and have to say its a little gem in the heart of Amsterdam. Located right in the middle of the RLD. The staff are fantastic, Michelle, the day manager can't do enough for you as with the owners Jan and Monique. The bar is brilliant and used by lots of locals and has a great atmosphere. There's also a little terrace located outside with seating which is a great location to see the comings and goings , especially during the evening hours. I like nothing else than sitting here in the morning with a fresh coffee watching the area come to life. Rooms are clean and comfortable but as with most places in Amsterdam take care on the steep stairs!!

Very much recommended for a stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Try to get room one if you can. Large room with en suite at the front of the hotel overlooking all t...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Royal taste lies in the heart of the Red Light District and is a perfect place for bargain hunters who do not need extraordinary accommodations. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a nice little bar with some seats out in front to enjoy a drink and watch all of the onlookers check out the sights of the area. The hotel was an easy walk from the train station with several restaurants of good quality within 5 minutes walk. Ask for a room in the back where it is a bit quieter and you have your own bathroom.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room for a quieter experience.
