I booked this hotel as it was super central and the location fitted with my plans being only a few minutes walk from the station and access to the ferry across to 'This is Holland' where many of the day excursions leave from. I am really bad with directions so needed to be sure that airport to hotel and hotel to booked day excursion are easy to access. The girl at the reception in the old Nickel cafe, where you register, was really helpful. I had checked in advance if I could leave my luggage as I arrived mid morning. This was not a problem, but I would say the luggage is left in the kitchen and not locked up so don't leave valuables there. The room was tiny but clean at number 19 a few doors down from the cafe. It was the single room with the cute Dutch girl wallpaper and tulips. It served me well as I only needed somewhere to sleep. It is right opposite a karaoke bar, so if you are sensitive with noise this is not for you. It didn't bother me.

The rooms are very small considering the high cost of the hotel, almost the same as Hotel Victoria. The bathroom had a bad smell coming from the drain, and the beds were also small. Choose a room away from the street if you want a bit more tranquility. the hotel doesn't offer any additional amenities.

I booked the Old Nickel hotel purely from the vantage of location and price. The location couldn't be more perfect - a stone's throw from Amsterdam's central station (600 metres or 5-10 mins) and within walking distance of all of Amsterdam's major sightseeing attractions. I walked everywhere in Amsterdam and enjoyed strolling through the canals and waterways. There are several large supermarkets nearby and restaurants, cafes and bars numbering in the hundreds. No lack of food choices, this is for certain! I booked the single/economy room for one night. The room was very very small, but certainly manageable for one night. The room had a twin bed, a stool, under bed luggage storage (which was appreciated given the severe lack of room), and above bed shelving. There was a television in my room, but I couldn't get it to work. Lighting was good in the hotel, many electricity sockets including one above the bed, and the wifi signal was very strong throughout the hotel, even up on the third floor where my room was located. I left on an early train, so I didn't take breakfast at the hotel. I am not sure that breakfast is offered at this hotel though!? The bathroom was also a bit cramped, but I expected this. The toilet sat awkwardly underneath the sink, so I bumped into it often. The shower was enclosed with glass doors, the temperature of water was wonderful but the shower pressure left something to be desired. The bathroom amenities included hand soap as well as an in shower dispenser with a shampoo/body wash combination. A floor mat, a hand towel and a bath towel were also provided. Here's the double edged sword. The room overlooked a very busy street, which, in Amsterdam, didn't make for a restful sleep. I was awoken through the night by late night partiers in the streets as well as guests arriving to the Old Nickel hotel very late. Because it's an old building, you can hear pretty much everything going on around you, including inconsiderate guests. There is no lift in the hotel, and the stairs are incredibly narrow and very steep. This is quite common I'm finding in Europe - very steep, old staircases. Be very careful as you ascend and descend with luggage. The hotel sits above a bar, which must be owned by the same owners. I didn't eat there, so I cannot comment on the food or drinks. The woman tending to the bar and also the hotel was very pleasant and kind! I had a good stay here, and I appreciated that I was able to find budget accommodation in the heart of Amsterdam. I don't feel that the deficiencies above are necessarily the fault of the hotel, rather inconsiderate guests and party goers, so, I'd recommend this hotel to my fellow budget weary travellers. Overall, a good and budget friendly hotel in central Amsterdam!

The staff were very friendly and helpful which was one of only 2 positives, second being The location of the hotel right in walking distance to most things! The rooms were very small not much room to store belongings or to move around ,also the shower pressure was very poor and on couple occasions never had any hot water even come out the shower! The room wasn't very well cleaned either apart from new towels to which some had markings on them and you’ve also got to put up with the noise from outside the very busy street the hotels situated on and also a karaoke bar being opposite the accommodation.

I was bitten by bed bugs, which made it a really bad experience over all. Except from that, the room is small and not very well isolated so it's quite noisy during night. The location is great tough and the room clean.

Adequate stay. We arrived early in the morning and check-in wasn’t until 2 pm upon arrival we were greeted by the gentleman at the bar. There is no reception desk for check-in. The hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to store our bags whilst we explored the city. However, the room which was provided to store the bags was rather grim as it doubled up as a storage/ glass washroom/ cleaning cupboard and the smell wasn’t particularly pleasant. However, our room provided I must say for the price was very good. They were a bit on the small side but functional and very clean too. Our room was in a separate building and we were placed on the top floor, there were a lot of steps which are steeper than the average staircase. Not ideal! Luckily we only had small cases with us but I can imagine this would be very challenging with larger luggage bags. The location was perfect and everything was within walking distance.

We arrived for a 4 night stay at 9am in early January, the hotel was accommodating and allowed us to store our cases before our room became available. The reception is located in a small Dutch traditional style pub within a very central location. The rooms we were allocated were in a separate building to the pub. The room was compact however practical. Clean enough with a fairly modern enough bathroom. The biggest concern was the small winding stairs to the room. Not so ideal after a night on the drink! The room was kept clean throughout the stay and we were satisfied with the value location and cleanliness. The room to store luggage in is rather pungent yet a functional nicety to be able to store our luggage while having unsociable flight times. Overall it was a fair budget friendly stay, not necessarily luxury however fair for a good location stay.

Once we checked in the room was really unclean, bins weren’t emptied, the floor had rubbish and paraphernalia bags under the bed and desks. The toilet had marks on the room was full of dust. T.V didn’t work and out front door didn’t lock properly. The shower was leaking and barely worked. I returned to the receptions and raised my issues, the staff member said he will get on to it right away to bring it up to standard, we went out for a bit and came back an hour later and not a single thing had been changed in the rooms, not a thing, it was exactly how we left it. At this point as I was going out to the reception again when I bumped into a house keeper who I kindly requested to go over our room which he did. The towels were never changed during our stay or our beds. One positive is the location is great its just few mins away from the train station and centre. We are not fussy travellers the only thing we asked for is it to be clean, three times.
