“Great hotel for friends”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

This hotel is great value for money,You are right in the middle of the red light district "the hotel is across from the famous pink elephant of Casa Rosso",everything is about 2 mins walk at most from here.The rooms are a bit basic & the carpets worn but are clean,what do you expect for 95euro per person each for 3 nights.
We were 6 guys on a long weekend ,just here for the weed & women,And we really enjoyed it all,the room has all your basic needs like a bed, a shower, a toilet & clean towels daily , the toilet & shower is NOT SHARED apart from your room friends.You even get breakfast for your quoted price,so if your looking for a mad time in the Dam this is 100 times better than any hostel for the same price,i just wouldnt take any girl on a romantic break here but who in there right mind takes a woman to Amsterdam ,it just seems to be a fun party place for groups in my opinion,Hope you's all enjoy as much as we did.

I stayed for one night here in Amsterdam. I just wanted a cheap basic place to sleep in as I knew I would be spending most of my time sight-seeing.

Its in the heart of the Red Light District, and is about 10 minute walk from the train station.

The room is basic, although the carpet was in need of a clean, the bed and bathroom were very clean. There is no TV in the room, but that didn't bother me as I only used the room for sleeping and having a shower. Breakfast is again basic, but nice with meats, cheese, eggs, sausages and bread

If you just want a cheap but comfy place to stay while you go out and see all the sights, then go here.

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
