“Good value for your money!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Located near Leidseplein.Ideal to start shopping or for a night out. Very friendly staff. We were surprised to find a shower in our room. Small but clean room. If you need a clean and cheap place to sleep, this is the place!

My room was very small but clean. Although tight, the private bathroom was clean and an advantage. The stairs were a bit steep and tight. The staff is really, really friendly and helpfull. The breakfast/lounge/garden area is very nice. I recommend it because is a good value for money and is close to important places like Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Voldenpark, for example.

The hotel has a very good location with a perfect view. The room was quiet and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very tasty. We would recommend Hotel Iris to everyone! It is a good choice.

The hostel team was really nice and helpful.
The room was ok but the bed sheet were a bit dirty...
Plus we were just in front of the reception desk, so it was a bit noisy.
But nice place anyway, it was especially pleasant to have our breakfast close to the little garden outside.

This is a cheap hotel with a great location and great staff. Everyone I met during my stay were helpful and friendly. The rooms aren't the greatest, and the beds are not the comfiest, but it's just fine for a few days' stay. The wall-to-wall carpet in the rooms could well be replaced by wooden floors, but to me that was no biggie. When in Amsterdam, you should *NOT* spend more time than absolutely necessary in your hotel room!

Unless you've got a back that requires high quality beds, this hotel is a no-brainer for people who want a cheap hotel with access to the canals, tram, bus and even reaching the city centre by foot in less than 20 mins.

I will definitely consider the Iris for my next trip to Amsterdam.

Just be aware that this is not a high quality hotel, and might not fit the bill for older people due to steep stairs (good luck avoiding that in Amsterdam!), small rooms and not-the-best beds.

The hotel is cool, in a Beautiful place, not so far from the city center and near the metro station and the bus stop. The room was not so big, but is ok. The price is good and last but not least The girls at the desk are very Nice.
