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...

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...

I have spent 3 nights in February with my boyfriend in this hotel. The entrance itself didn't look up to standard. When you enter to a small reception desk the lady at the reception just gives you a fake smile and pretends to be nice. We had a huge problem with our bedroom key. The door to the bedroom want...

I booked to stay here as my usual preferences were all booked up for the weekend. The chap on reception was very helpful and friendly, the room was clean and bright if a bit dated (but to be honest for the price most places are going to be a bit like this in Amsterdam). They let us check out a...

I came here with my 80-year-old mother, and I suppose that was why we were given a room on the first floor. However, this did also mean we were given (in my opinion) a substandard room. No shower curtain (not provided, despite mentioning it on day 1 of 4), no sink plug, an exposed wire by the socket at my...

Pros: Comfy bed, good continental breakfast, great location. Non smoking & free wifi. Cons: Everything everyone else has said is true. Very dated & small bedroom, steep staircases and terrible smell in the hallways. Also outside noise kept me awake one of the nights. Staff seemed friendly but we had 2 negative encounters. Firstly the man who checked us in...
