My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. The staff were very friendly, we were given a map of the local area and a local newsagents was pointed out to us. We were encouraged to ask if we needed anything, given a yummy stroopwafel and checked in quickly despite the fact we only expected to drop off our cases...

The hotel's location is excellent right off a train station. There are a lot of sports activities inside the hotel. But the rooms are way too small, the amenities inside the rooms almost non-existent. And some rooms seems as an afterthought.

I stayed at The Student Hotel with my wife and four friends. The reception staff were very helpful, the hotel, was very clean and contemporary. Our room was spacious and basic, but was only a place to rest after exploring the hectic centre of Amsterdam, so suited our needs perfectly. The hotel has a relaxed, chilled out vibe. It's popular...

The hotel gives a nice energy when you first step in, you are even offer a stroopwafel when you check in. The room is really not for couples but for students on a budget. The room is bare, no slippers, no tooth brush, no free bottle waters, no electric kettles, no hair dryer and no safe deposit box! The room...

This hotel was good for the reasonable price we paid - we had a suite room which was good but no kettle, you have to ask reception for crockery/cutlery. Only downsides were that the thermostat only went to 24 which was not warm enough in jan, the shower was cold too. We also rang multiple times each day to get...

We stayed for a night but the spent most of our time at the hotel itself. It's an amazing experience. The atmosphere is pretty chilled out and you feel like you belong there. I guess, the lesser said is better. One must definitely try this place out for the experience of it. It is definitely not like walking into any...

Great stay, nice rooms but kinda basic, great bed. Clean! Helpful staff. Would be ideal for kettle in room. Coffee slightly expensive but delicious! Over all great stay Navigate from the airport before you go as we found it hard to find initially, then it all made sense
