“Noisy overpriced”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Very noisy not just workers outside but seemed more like a Hostel with young people coming and going all night banging doors , when I complained next morning staff said to bad should have come down at 1.30 am 3 flights of stairs and told us then, not good enough . A lot of work on buildings around this place so cannot relax during the day time. Can't open windows because the mozzies will eat you, so the room became stuffy and hot.

Absolutely a winner! This hotel should be rewarded an extra star. The hospitality, service and cleanliness were superb!
Enjoyed the ability to sit with my laptop relaxing in their garden connecting with home and gearing up to the busy city in the neutral and very clean almost new smelling rooms. The central location and plenty of public transportation made my trip very comfortable in all. The airport shuttle brought be back to Schiphol and brought great affordability to my trip in all. I would greatly recommend this Amsterdam hotel.

Room Tip: street view typical Amsterdam style and in the back indeed more quiet but public transportation stop...

Service was excellent, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent, good choice of fresh food. Room was a good size and comfortable, a bit noisy from the passing trams, but the ear plugs provided were very useful. Tram 13 stops close by, so easy access to all parts of Amsterdam.

Just back from a short break in Amsterdam, our stay at the alps was very good , the staff are very friendly and helpful,rooms are clean although we were at the very top of the building and there is no lift , stairs are quite steep , breakfast was good and the hotel is about fifteen minutes from the centre, but quite close to the Ann Frank house , would stay at this hotel again as it is in a nice area and it was good to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

We just stayed 3 nights at the Alp Hotel Amsterdam. It was a short tram ride on tram 13 from Central train station. We were greeted warmly and offered free hot drinks upon arrival and anytime during the day. We stayed in the Vangogh room on the second floor. We had a triple room, very clean, roomy for us and a nice balcony. Breakfast was very good, mainly cold foods with boiled eggs, pastries, toast, cheese, meats, yogurt, etc. we liked it! We would highly recommend this place, the tram is right out the front door and takes you everywhere in minutes. You can walk to Anne Frank house or te Dam too. Yes the stairs are steep, but expect it in Europe. All the hotels are like this.

Room Tip: The back rooms are very quiet.
