The location of the hotel is rather good but so far the positive news. The rooms are very small and old, you can hear people in the room next to you and there is quite some noise at night. Breakfast is very basic (bread, eggs, some ham and jam). We have no wifi signal in our room. The water in... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Gave us a map and circled all the best coffeeshop's etc. Rooms small but comfortable enough for a weekend. Has a outdoor smoking area so you don't need to leave the hotel itself. Would recommend.

Recently stayed here with 2 other friends for a short R&R after working in London. This great hotel/hostel is tucked into a beautiful hidden corner of Amsterdam next to the botanical garden and only a short walk to the centre of Dam proper. Everything you need is right nearby from cafe to supermarket. Like most places in Amsterdam expect stairs... More

This hotel is not a hotel it is something like a hostel. The room was as in a prison cell without windows 2 m2. I never sleep in place like this. It was a nightmare. The room was at 3 third floor with very steep stairs.

Generally a good stay for four nights. On arrival was greeted by manager who explained everything well, overall all staff members were helpful, especially the woman who was on duty in the evenings. The single room was small but adequate, tap in sink was a bit broken. First night was very noisy and the doors bang a lot. Following nights... More

We stayed here for one night only. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff member. We arrived before check in times so the staff nicely let us leave our luggage. We were given our own key to come in and out of the hotel which was nice and a lot easier especially if you're coming in abit... More

When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff member who told us all we needed. Room was clean but had to share shower and toilet with a lot of people. First night was extremely noisy, could hear absolutely everything going on. Second and third nights things quietened down quite a lot. All other staff we met during our... More

Very basic but very clean. Breakfast is plenty. Coffee and tea avilable all day for free. The bed was too soft for us. Sink inside the room, shared toilet and shower but always clean and never occupied when needed. Wi-Fi can't connect in our room only in the lounge. Open smoking terrace was right under our window so couldn't open... More

Just had 1 night away in this hotel. The hotel is in a nice location, right across the road form the Botanical Gardens. It was about a 20 min walk from the center of Amsterdam, and about a 10 minute walk from Rembrant Square. There was a tram stop close by too. The room itself was clean and tidy. We... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
