“Amsterdam Central Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

Rooms are so small and the Toilet is even smaller. This is the smallest ever room that I have ever stayed in. Just about a foot distance from the bed to the wall and the Toilet dont even talk about it. On the other hand very clean and neat. Paid Eu:70/- for a single room with no Breakfast or Internet. Location is city center just infront of Rembrandt Square, 5mins. walk to the flower market, 4mins walk to shopping street & 7mins walk to Dam Square. If its just a room to stay the night while your out the whole day then this is the place.

Room Tip: All rooms are small. Book online for the best rates

A great location by the Amstel river/canal. A pleasant experience though first room we were offered was extremely small & dull in all respects - this was a comfort room. Upgraded to a better room & enjoyed our stay. Nicely equipped hotel friendly concierge & staff.

Dissappointed to have to pay a Tourist tax on hotel room - doesn't exactly attract me to a return visit to Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Avoid comfort rooms

Good hotel in excellent location. I rang before we arrived and commented on the "dirty shower" review on Trip Advisor. We had a lovely room overlooking Amstel. We booked Room only so breakfast was expensive but provided excellent choice. Good cafe next door for cheaper start to the day. Stayed 4 nights, all staff very pleasant and helpful. Good tram connections in Rembrandt Square you can easily take train from airport and tram from Central station. We would definitely stay again.. Did a guided bike tour which I can recommend. Saturday night was quite noisy ..lots of revellers ..If you sleep lightly ask for a room at the back

stayed here for 2 nights great location with easy access from central station by tram, front desk staff helpful and polite, free wifi added bonus, room overall in good condition bed comfortable. Easy access to most sights and eateries around central area. Only issue carpet and chair needed a bit of a clean. Would stay here again.

This hotel has an excellent location. Our room was clean and quiet. Room location makes the difference. Close to all attractions. "Coffee shops" on one side and Gay bar on the other. A lot of fun with a live and let live attitude. Be careful of bicycles. They have priority.
Go early morning to see Anne Franks house. Line up can be quite long. Book with easy jet and get a combo rate. That was our case. Overall, great location to see Amsterdam and experience a liberal attitude.

Lovely hotel, rooms very clean, and right in the heart of Rembrandt Square. Would recommend this hotel, we arrived at midday, and was able to go straight to our room.
The rooms are reasonably small, but you don't go to a fantastic city like Amsterdam to sit around in your room all day.
Breakfast was good value, with a choice of breads, smoked salmon, salads, cooked, and fruit.
Lovely comfy beds and pillows too!
Anne Frank house a must, very moving!
And obviously the famous Red Light District is an eye opener!!

Spent almost a week here middle of August.

Right in the Amstel area & hopping distance from Rembrandtplein where there are tons of restaurants/bars and transit options. Was very surprised at how middle of the city it was located when others say its not great. Had to take a taxi from Centraal Station due to luggage and cold and during rush hour - very expensive.

Entrance of hotel is nice. I read here there is a new section and and old one. I of course got the old one and you could tell. I wore my flipflops constantly in the room as carpet was pretty old and floors in shower were full of dirt/mildew etc. However, hotel totally full and was on a month long stay of Europe and didn't want to fight the fight when staying in multiple hotels.

Lobby staff helpful. The newer Eden is on the back side of the hotel through the lobby which I discovered on the last night! The buffet restaurant is really expensive for breakfast so didn't use it. Found tons of quickee places for a bagel/croissant/juice/coffee just a couple of streets away there were fraction of the cost.

Since there are so many options in Amsterdam I will look for another one next time but if you are looking for eaee of location, its for you.

Room Tip: Demand to be in the newer section on arrival
