My wife booked this place for myself and my son so we could attend the DocsForSale market where he is promoting a film he made. As an IRON RULE, my wife always looks for, books and pays for places that have "free" (included) WiFi and some form of breakfast. Ajax offers this option - included breakfast- though as a rule,...

I strongly advise to whomever is considering this 'hotel', consider somewhere else. There is a cat to greet you at the top of a horrendous flight of stairs (which are not sturdy), who's hairs and smell linger throughout every point. The cat's 'bed' and food lays at the bottom of another flight of stairs and it is absolutely revolting. There... More

Small rooms, no isolation whatsoever. Breakfast that was fit for dogs. Toilet was a joke, could sh-it, shower and shave at the same time. Service was terrible. Location was the only positive thing about this extremely malnourished hotel. Will never book it again.

THE WORST place i've ever stayed. The owner cancels bookings, said we could only stay 2 nights instead of our 3. Had to change rooms between the nights. Rooms were horrible. $150 smoking fee. Terrible

I would avoid this place at costs!! The free breakfast is very basic we didn't attempt breakfast purely because the "hotel" cat has free rein of the hotel including the table where food was served and the sink! The rooms are very basic and need a lot of work doing...plaster board falling of the walls and plug sockets not attached... More

I made the mistake of booking without checking reviews and needed to be somewhere central. From the moment I arrived and during my stay it was the most unpleasant experience ever! The owner was rude and basically told me to shut up when I questioned him during checking-in. There is a ridiculous policy of leaving a deposit of 150 Euros... 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.
