Hotel Allure
Ranked #73 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The hotel itself was clean and comfortable with standard amenities. Local restaurants were good and it was conveniently located on the #10 tram line. You won't be disappointed in the property - but what really stood out was the helpful staff, particularly Mr. Zi-Jian Wang. He was friendly and patient with my many questions, and offered plenty of helpful tips on Amsterdam.

I stayed in this hotel in March with 2 friends, the room was tiny and we were there for 3 nights but it was in a great location, just beside Metro (which we got from Main train station from airport and back, very handy) and tram 10 & 7 just outside the door. The hotel was basic but clean and perfect for tourists going out for the day and just needing place to sleep. It was freezing in Amsterdam but was lovely and warm in the room all the time. The area was quiet and not too hectic but 2 min walk to metro, 15 min walk to the Leidseplein. I would recommend it.

We stayed from the 12th to the 14th of April and had a wonderful time! The staff on reception were very friendly, we arrived early and our room wasn't ready but they happily kept our bags, when we checked in we discovered our hair dryer didn't work but they gave us another and were happy for us to keep it for the duration of the stay. Both reception and cleaning staff were very friendly. The sheets and towels were changed which we didnt expect with a 2 night stay.

The hotel was very clean, the room was compact but we expected this and as somewhere to sleep and shower we didnt need anything more. The beds were very comfy, the room was warm, we had a large flat screen TV, free use of an electronic safe and always had hot and powerful showers.

The location is great, walking distance to the zoo and the Hermitage Museum. There are tram and metro stops a stones through away and you are not far from anything.

We didn't see nor hear any other guests!

I have no negative comments at all the only slight improvement which could be made is there is a kettle and cups in the room but no tea/coffee/milk etc which would have been nice but not necessary. I would recommend this hotel. It is basic but a high level, better than a Travelodge! Very good for a 3 star.

this is a really nice hotel to stay in! price is ok (we paid approx.300eur for 2 nights) which was good considering this is Amsterdam.

rooms are small, tho very clen, nice bathroom, really comfy bed! maybe a bit loud if u have weirdo neighbors..

location is good..though you do have to walk 15mins to get to downtown/canals.

staff is really nice and very helpful.

what i highly recommend is rent bikes and then just commute around on those beasts! great fun, youll see LOTS more and wont get so tired!

The hotel is very clean, the location is great (very close to the city centre of amsterdam and close to public transport) and the rooms are very modern (modern bathroom, modern tv). The hotel is very quiet as well.

I spent 3 days here with Mrs Finnegan. It's about a 15 minute walk to the city centre or 5 minutes by tram. The rooms were very clean and the area was quiet which allowed for a good nights sleep. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

Only slight quibble is that the duvets were a little on the light side.

I'd recommend this place as great value to any couples planning on spending a few days in Amsterdam.
