Before I get to the bed bugs, I'll start from the beginning! We were given a double and a single bed after the hotel advertising all single beds (room 5). The beds were not comfortable at all. The mattresses were lumpy and uncomfortable. One mattress was too big for the base and it kept sliding off. We were only given... More

Looked at the hotel without seeing tge reviews. Boy I should have not done that. This place was a stinker! The only plus side was thatbit was a 5 min walk to the train station. But if you like filth and claustrophobia, this is your place to stay! The bathrooms where wonderful. Toilet covered in caked on crap and mold... More

I had read the bad reviews about, the miserable old man who owns it and the state of the place. To be honest on a budget this hotel was good. Yeah ok my towel had holes in it but could have got a better one if i asked, but it was usable and smelt clean and washed. The beds where... More

We didn't stay at the Tamara Hotel but ate at the Ocakbasi, finished off with cocktails at their well equipped North Side Bar. We ate mid afternoon when the Okabassi was closed but they welcomed us. Really good Turkish Blues was playing that we could have copied had we a USB. We chose our grill and they encouraged the hazelnut... More

You get what you pay for. Room was clean, fresh sheets and towels. Shared bathroom was kept clean. Lady that checked us in was very helpful regarding local knowledge. Location was fantastic, 5mins from the heart of De Wallen.

This was the worst hotel ever! Everything sucks! We didn't stay for the all time we paid! The room was dirty and so small that I can't even describe, we couldn't sleep inside of the bed,the sheets were dirty! The washroom smell like pee and there was no paper towel's or soap! It was disgusting!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
