It looked like a hostel to me, even if actually some hostels are in better conditions. The carpet in the room was dusty, some towels dirty of something like make-up, the socket of the lamp dangerously broken, and the stool was sticky... I booked for a room with shower and they gave us a room with bath, which was fine... More

Reception staff on check in were no enough, racially the girl who checked us in she was very welcoming. However the room was not up to scratch. TV was poor and bad reception Bathroom fittings having off Reception staff hurrying us out the room at 11:50 overall not great. Room size ok, location 20 mins from Dam SQ not bad.

The only benefit to this hotel is the cost in relation to the distance to the city center. If you are stuck not being able to take the tram line or metro from the city center after they both stop running for the night back to the hotel and have to walk back, this location is good. The rooms are... More

Our room was on the top floor and it was clean and comfortable but very small . It had a sloping ceiling and a timber beam running... More

This is a two-star budget hotel; it's not going to be particularly pretty. Two different tram lines stop in front, and there are convenient places to eat nearby. The maintenance isn't quite up to standards, and there are lots of features to Dutch buildings that are not well understood by Americans (like steep stairwells and narrow rooms). Carpeting was not...

If you need a place to crash and take a shower. Thats OK, shower was clean and bed too. Wifi did not work on my room (4th floor). But got another one after asking. That was great. Dont go there for luxury.

I read the Tripadvisor reviews after booking this place and admit I was slightly worried. Granted, the rooms are functional at best and could be a bit cleaner, but you get what you pay for. It is located right beside a tram stop that runs directly to the city, and the zoo is just across the road. As for "rude"... More

Why some businesses think that they will get richer if they keep peoples money even when they call in advance to amend a booking made by mistake? It's just shocking ,stupid and greedy. The owner has no human sense or respect for his clients . After I have looked on the review pictures I now understand why this hotel is... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
