LOVED the quirkiness of the hotel and all of its different nooks and crannies! Friendly staff, food was excellent quality and great value. The design elements made this the coolest hotel I've stayed in.

The location of this hotel is its main feature, 2.5km's from the Central Train Station it is a great place to stay with easy access to the city. The 26 tram drops you off a couple of hundred metres from Lloyds (3 stops). The hotel delivered a large clean room, good shower and a flat screen TV, tea and coffee... More

I spent a few days in Amsterdam with my friend, we were looking for somewhere cheap as for us a bed is a bed. It turns out just staying in a 1 star room is cheaper than staying in an 8 person hostel. This hotel is so close to the central station, i was so delighted by that fact. The... More

Loved this place - all different * of room within hotel. The bedrooms are different but 'cool'! Don't quite get the no drawers or wardrobe bit but was only there for 3 nights so not a problem. Lots of fresh fruit at breakfast and sparkling wine which is always a treat! Only about a 10 minute tram ride to centre.... More

Friendly staff, nice rooms, beautiful historical building. Free WiFi, good Internet signal, nice and quiet place to work in the library. Free coffee was a pleasent surprise. If you are by bike/foot, it's not so close to the city center. But it's only a couple of stations away from the Central Station.

It seems like every room is different in this former prison/juvenile detention center/etc., if you want something quirky than this place is for you. My room had a bathroom that exposes your business to the tapas bar across the street and lights that were fairly difficult to turn on (Not recommended for short people). Another had a mop in the...

Exceptionally interesting and fun place to stay. it's a little bit outside of the city center but as the metro station is nearby no problem. We stayed in a large room with a bath tub inside the room. all was very spacious. It's not the usual hotel ambience much more fun and 'cultural'. Maybe that's why the full name is... More

This hotel is worth seeing in its own right.

Staying in Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)

Neighborhood Profile
Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)
