My buddy and I stayed here in May '09. We arrived into the central station and walked down the Damrak to the Dam Square. Turned right, then left, and then a couple of blocks down to the right was the hotel hidden behind a bunch of trees. The entrance is down a few steps from the sidewalk. Once you get inside the lobby is a good size with a couple of lounge chairs and sofa. There was a separate room off the lobby which was the communal computer room. The reception desk is immediately to the left of the entrance. We were greeted by the receptionist and we checked in quite quickly and were off to our room.
Our room was on the top floor facing the street and it was hot up there. We arrived late in the afternoon and when we got up to our room it was hot! We opened the windows and went out to get some food and walk around and figured the room would cool down by then. It didn't. I headed downstairs to get a fan while my buddy took a shower (yes, there's no AC). Front desk showed us where they had some fans and said grab whatever we wanted. Yeah, there was no help, but we knew what to expect from a budget hotel in Europe. So got a desk fan and a floor fan and took them up the room in the elevator. The room was good size to be able to hold 2 twin beds on either side of the room a small desk and en-suite bathroom. The decor was outdated and the beds were not so good. The carpet was bit dirty. The windows were still a little cracked open at night to let the air circulate, but that only let in the noise from outside.
All in all the room gave the impression of a 2 star hotel. Since we only needed this place to sleep for a night, we were satisfied with the hotel, but we will probably look for another place next time.
