“very heart of the red light district”
Reviewed May 1, 2010

booked the amsterdam flights only 4 weeks before, pretty late for deals on good hotels. Having seen only one review on trip advisor for hotel 83 and some pics on their website I was not sure what we would get for our 450Eur (triple room) it was basic but met our needs as we would not be in the room much.
On arrival one of the beds was broken but the owner replaced it by the evening. The nearest metro is about 5-10min walk, but we only used this to get to and from airport, the city is compact so getting around on foot/bike is not a problem. very basic but nevertheless breakfast of bread, cheese and some ham along with tea/coffee is provided

Good points: The hotel is very basic but clean and the bathroom was newly renovated, friendly and helpful staff, central location, free wi-fi
Bad points: steep stairs to get to the reception and then to the rooms, no lifts but i think this is not unique to this hotel.
Could be too loud for the light sleepers, not a family friendly hotel due to the location (right on the main road of red light district)
there is no safe in the room
