“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Very convenient and clean hotel for a very cheap price.

Certainly no frills and no customer service to speak of. If you're going to be out most of the day then this is a fine place to sleep for little cash. If you're the kind of person who gets upset by basic accommodation then pay more for a better hotel. If you want to keep it as cheap as possible then this place will do.

Good location, only 15 min walk to main center and the room was a good size. Tiny bathroom but wasn't a problem for us. Importantly the room was warm and clean so we were happy enough.

The room which was reserved was a basic room instead of the mentioned room. The guest thought he booked something else. Our hotel has NO LOFT ROOMS for couples. This guest unfortunaly thinks different. Everybody is free to make there comments but this is out of proportion. We are happy that the majority of the guests like Hotel Iris.

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 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.
