Accommodation in Amsterdam (particularly near the centre) all seem to be really expensive. I found this place and thought it seemed reasonable particularly for the location. The room was quite basic but it had everything I needed for a short stay but the real winning point is the location. Walking distance to Amsterdam's main attractions and the tram system meant...

The hotel is in a great location - 10 mins from the station, 5 mins from dam square/the red light district and 5 mins from Ann...

My room was at the back of the hotel so it was quiet, but the stairs was just outside my room so there is some noise...

This hotel is in a perfect location; 5 min walk to Dam Square and 2-3 min walk to the Anne Frank house. It was cheap, with our last minute booking, and was clean. We shared a bathroom and toilet with other people on our floor, which was fine. They are clean and in working order. The beds are very comfy...

Brilliant location...close to central station and trams 13 and 17 stop nearby and near Anne Franks House, bars, restaurants. Once in my room, it was really quiet. The only outside noise was the church clock bells. I was a bit worried about being next to the staircase, but it's not a huge hotel so although I was woken by people...

me and two friends were heading to Amsterdam for the weekend. We wanted the supposedly impossible.. Central, but cheap yet not a dump. We were very glad we found hotel pax on trip advisor. The location is fantastic and the price is fantastic value. We arrived after a short walk from the train station and climbed its steep stairs. We...
