4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I arrived on a Friday to Amsterdam, and for various reasons, I found I had no hotel reservation. I went to the Continental hotel, and thanks to receptionist (Feiz, I think that was the right way to write your name) I could have the problem solved. In addition, during the weekend Feiz provided me help in many other things and... More

If you're looking for a "cutsie romantic getaway" this place is not for you. IF you're looking for a lads "pass out after the wonders of the dam!" this place is for you. I travelled with 4 other lads and stayed in a dorm like room. It was a tad small but we had a place to crash and shower... More

This was by far the most central hotel we have ever stayed at. It was excellent for a weekend break which we took 23/07/16-25/07/16. The facilities were fine for just a break as there is so much naturally on the doorstep that we only slept and bathed here. My only concern would be for anyone with mobility issues as the... More

The hotel is in a great location and the staff are very friendly, especially the lovely receptions called Stephanie. Do not expect to get a 5 star bedroom in a 1 star. The hotel is great for travellers and young people if you are not fussed about spacing.

Room was extremely small - featured an open sink and shower and the shared toilet was on the level below. The staircases are VERY steep which makes carrying luggage up and down a tricky process. The room + shared toilet were clean enough. The location of the hotel is great - close to Central Station and Dam Square. Overall, this... More

3 of us booked to stay here for a weekend in the Dam. Booked solely on its location and ludicrously low prices! 3 single beds, 1 wardrobe, a sink and a open shower with a small curtain next to one of the beds. A shared toilet outside the room, however. Fine for us as a group of friends but could... More

Terrible. Avoid at all costs. The whole place smells. Bathrooms old and tired, staff are rude. The rooms are basic and considering the fact that there are hundreds of other hotels in close proximity you would be far better off looking elsewhere.

We used this hotel as a base for a festival we attended as it was very close to Amsterdam Central Station, literally a 5 min walk. We booked a 3 bed hotel room and when we got there we got upgraded to a 3 bed apartment (apartment 1), I wouldn't quite say it was an apartment it was quite small... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
