Cheap"ish" booking on the outskirts but around a 20/30 + minutes walk to the centre or any other attractions. The hotel was on the tram routes, which was handy but the hotel itself was pretty grim. The receptions and breakfast area are all very clean and pleasant but the rest is pretty grim. Filthy stairs and hallways (only for the... More

I knew what we were getting into at about £40 a night to be honest, but I can't really rate the Sphinx any more than a 2 star. It was clean enough, the location wasn't too far out, and the area was safe (next to the Heineken brewery.) however the room was Spartan, a bit tatty (curtains were nearly see... More

The hotel was a few tram stations away from Amsterdam Centraal and we were happy to pick this location. It was still conveniently located, within walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets, within tram rides to other major attractions, and yet it was not so crowded. Finding the hotel was not easy for the first time from the Weteringschans roundabout. But... More

My son and girlfriend had to find a last minute place to stay, after having lost the keys to their rented studio. I called up the hotel at 23.15, and the nightshift hotel attendant was very helpful and the two had a roof over their head for the night. It was not luxurious, but everything they needed was available. The... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in January, exactly what u expect from a cheap stay in Amsterdam! Went to Amsterdam previous 2 years ago and paid more for a hostel which was awful. We had a quadruple room and it was on the first floor so didn't have to walk too many steep stairs. Beds were comfy, bathroom was clean... More

I stayed here with 3 friends in a quadruple private room. It was more than i paid for. The beds are so comfy. The room is hot enough so we did not get cold. The breakfast was not so diverse but was enough. The staff is not so talky but they help. The hotel has a free map i would... More

Wasn't great place tbh ... First day we checked in staff not very friendly and didn't give us much information. Room was very basic. The t.v , safe and some of the lights were broken in our room. Although we had a balcony at the top floor so that was pretty cool. Good place to stay if your only staying... More

Rooms very basic but that's what you need when visiting Amsterdam, about a 15/20 minute to walk to dam square where you will find all the cafés and red light district, staff very kind, breakfast very short of options
