Great location as it was 10 minutes from everything and was close to public transport. Cheap hotel but it reflects in the overall quality of the hotel. Room was dated and damaged and needed some work done to it. The safety deposit box was left locked by the previous people and couldn't be reopened by the hotel for sometime, however... More

Never again - the condition of this hotel is the most disgusting hotel, I've ever stayed in. This hotel was absolutely filthy, there were cob webs in room, the mattress was infested with bed bugs, I’ve been bitten from head to foot. A light fitting was broken from wall with exposed electrical wires, shower door broken, mould on the bathroom... More

I found Hotel Agora through Frommer's Amsterdam Day By Day. The location is desirable for its proximity to good restaurants and tourist sites. However, it is not great (as Frommer's says). Unfortunately it's located next to a club. On the first night the thump of the base kept us awake until 4:00 a.m. We had our room changed the next... More

Spent a few nights at Hotel Agora. The location is great, breakfast was nice, and the staff was very welcoming. BUT, the room was very average and could be cleaner, the bed was very uncomfortable. The towels weren't replaced every day and the room hasn't been cleaned, besides doing the bed sheets.

Only negative side was the noise during the night. There is a club next to the hotel which was not nice when you want to sleep. I will come again for... More

I stayed here last week. Location is excellent! 10 minutes away from Madame Tessauds and the Dam square and the metro stops 200m away from the hotel. The wifi was brilliant too, thats about it. The staff were "Efficient", they did their job with no fuss. Being a business person I try to be as fair as possible however here... More

Hotel Agora is on the Singel, about 50 metres from the Flower Market and a tram stop for the 1, 2 and 5 lines. It is roughly halfway between Central Station and the major museums. My room twin-bedded room was on a light well. It was clean, as was the large bathroom. There were two reasonably comfortable chairs and a... More
