We stayed in the Acostar on Jan 1 as we were travelling onwards to southern Netherlands the following day. As the hotel was full our group was split up, meaning that my mother (59) with vertigo had to climb up to the 3rd floor on slopping, shallow steps. We had lots of baggage with us as my sister was going on ERASMUS exchange. We were put into the basement room. The stairs to this room were narrow and twisting which was hard to manage with the luggage. We were not offered any assistance.
The rooms themselves were clean, but run down. The hotel is in need of modernisation. There were broken tiles in the bathroom and some marks on the paint. Once this hotel receives some TLC then it would be comfortable enough for a base from which to explore.
The hotel is next to a coffeeshop and some gay clubs. If this is what you come to Amsterdam for then it would be handy as the are known for nightlife (Leidseplien) is close-by. However, it does mean that it is noisy and people are coming and going at all hours. Due to the fact that we were in the basement we could hear everything which did not make for a good rest.
Our deal included breakfast which was the usual continental style. However, if you were to pay separately then it would not be worth the 8 euro that they charge.
