My friend and I were considering staying at this hotel in September - we are in Amsterdam for a baptism. To celebrate, I wanted to buy the godmother a massage (she has been quite busy with work and family over the course of the year and so definitely needs some relaxation). I called the hotel this evening thinking perhaps they... More

When in Amsterdam, stay in Oud West section of the city. Its safe and close to the best museums and Vondelpark. Prinsen hotel has very comfy beds, nice staff, and free breakfast included. Small rooms but all hotels in the old town have small rooms. Good location, a good bed, a good shower and cleanliness is what matters. Prinsen Hotel... More

My girlfriend and I arrived at the Owl Hotel to find the guy at reception laughing and joking about the mistake he made double booking our room and they had no more space in the hotel. But he'd taken the liberty to book us at a hotel nearby, he mentioned that we would receive a big discount on the room... More

I cannot understand the bad reviews. We have just come back from a week stay at this hotel, the room was an average size room with a 6ft wide double bed a small table either side plus a wardrobe and 2 chairs. There was a small balcony you could sit out on, and there was a flat screen TV. The... More

I stayed in this hotel but the experience was terrible because they gave me a small cellar instead of a room and the cellar was bad smelling and noised. However I paid like a true room. Never ever . Not suggested at all. It is true there is a nice garden but this is not enough.

Ok so, if you are expecting a 5 star experience don't book it. The PRINSEN HOTEL is a fairly decent hotel to stay in. After all you are in Amsterdam. 1, Are you here to stay in a hotel? 2, again, it is AMSTERDAM anything is expensive comparing to other countries. The air is expensive to breathe. For Goodness sake,... More

We've stayed in a couple of hotels in Amsterdam near Museumplein and this is the best value for money one we've stayed in the area. The rooms are clean and well-appointed - our bathroom even had two showers! The staff are very friendly and helpful; the buffet breakfast was good quality and offered longer serving hours than a lot of... More

Basic but fit for purpose, clean, sweet little garden, lovely helpful staff and fabulous location for walking to the center of things, hotel is on a nice pretty quiet street so perfect. Rooms are small which is to be expected for Amsterdam.

we have stayed there 3 days, 4 people with single rooms. As it is quite expensive, we expected a wonderful hotel: the room are tight, the breakfast is very poor. One of our room was an under-stair cupboard!!!! the sink was outside the bathroom, it was at the fourth floor and extremely hot in May. no air conditioning. I can't... More
