Too bad the hotel does not live up to the website. It was dirty everywhere, from soilded carpets to worn walls and doors to large amounts of mold in the shower. The staff was friendly but inexperienced and could not give basic tour information or get a taxi for us. The complimentary breakfast was pathetic and you are better to...

We spent three days in Amsterdam at the end of a wonderful trip to London, Belgium, and Holland. This hotel was such a dump that we could not stay - we moved to another hotel! We were welcomed to the Agora by grafiti all around the door, a broken sign, and dead plants in the lobby. The stairway, hall, and...

This hotel is not worth the money. Stayed there three terrible nights. The beds were horrible - might as well been trying to sleep in a hammock. The room stank of smoke, and most of our neighbors stayed in their rooms smoking pot all day, which is their right, but the smoke filled the halls and all the rooms on...

Stayed at Hotel Agora on my eighth visit to A'dam. Have stayed in many hotels there and do not consider myself to be a nit- picky person. However, I have to agree with the sentiments of those who previously posted- sewage smell in the stairway, mold in the bathroom, etc. Breakfast was skimpy- on my first day there they "ran...

I really enjoyed this hotel. The location could not have been more perfect. Close to all the attractions. The rooms were decent, nothing special but clean and welcoming. We had a canel view which was very charming. Security was very good with three locked doors (front door, stairway and room) using a key card to access each, along with a...

This is in many ways a terrible hotel. Prepare to be disappointed - I know I was. Imagaine going back to the 60s - and you'll find the rooms haven't been touched since. The worst is the carpets - absolutely filthy. Old furniture, beds that sag - and worst of all, mould in the bathrooms. Sure, the place is in...

My wife sent me and my best friend to Amsterdam for a week for my 40th birthday (Thanks honey!) and after much research, I booked a room at the Agora. We were not disapointed. Our room faced the Singel Canal and featured a modern bathroom with a shower. The room was clean and came with a security card-operated safe perfect...

We, a family group of six aged 12 to 56, stayed at the Agora for 4 nights - and enjoyed our stay very much. Perfect location close to many interisting places, locations and restaurants. Nice and quiet rooms, good beds, recently renovated bathrooms. Delicious breakfast buffet in cozy room. The hotel is clean, safe and quiet. The staff are kind...

My husband and myself stayed at the Agora Hotel during May this year (2005). Apart from the fact that the hotel is centrally situated within walking distance to all major attractions and a relative, good enough breakfast, there is nothing positive that we can say about the hotel. Firstly when you are in the foyer of the hotel a sewerage...
