without a doubt advance booking hotels in Amsterdam is expensive. Nothing is perfect, trade off's are made, etc. We went with Truelove based on guidebook recommendations and price. The room was indeed near the Anne Frank house as quoted. However we were not warned that there was major construction right outside the building each morning, pounding pile drivers. OK so... More

After 20 minutes' I arrived at an empty shop which I was told had 1 room up above. I paid my 312 euros' for 3 nights' stay and was then led streets' away dragging my case again... More

I booked a room at truelove over new years because it was recommended by Rick Steves. Generally I like his recommendations, but I was disappointed in this place. The owners have apartments all over Amsterdam, so you have no way of knowing the location and picking in advance. Our room was close to the train station (we would have preferred... More

Our room was located in the Jordaan area a few blocks from the Anne Frank House. All in all a GREAT location. However the SMALL room was marginal. Supposedly it came with a refrigerator but that turned out to be a very small (1 cubic foot?) refrigerator that was red and had a 'Coca Cola' label on it. All in... More

I'm 22 and this was the first trip that I planned for myself out of the country. TrueLove was the perfect choice for many reasons. It's cheaper than a hotel, more than a hostel. If you're willing to spend a little more than hostel prices, it is so very much worth the comfort and security. The room service was minimal,... More

We ended up in the 2 story flat about a 5 minute walk from the store. The place had incredible character and was very large, especially for Amsterdam. Location terrific with big picture windows overlooking canal and street. Only warning is to people who have trouble navigating steps, they are very steep and narrow as is customary in Amsterdam. We... More

Stupid manager, broken window (impossible to close. The manager knew it and he didnt tell us) and the big surprise: mice in the room. The worst place in Amsterdam.

For the price you can't beat the location of the below-street-level apartment we rented from TrueLove. Very charming and clean.

We decided to stay here due to it's location in Jordaan, as wanted somewhere away from noise of centre. Unfortunately it was on a street with a bar across the road open until 3am, and a cafe that opens at 7am, so always noise. The set-up of the rooms was nice - we stayed in the suite with comfortable double... More

Stayed there for four nights with Wife in June. Had a great location in the Jordan, could walk to everywhere and the place across the street had a killer breakfast, but that is as far as it goes. The place had steps that were very dangerous (had to back down them) winding staircase with narrow treads. Room not ready when... More
