I stayed at this hotel at beginning of October. The hotel has a great location but that is the only good point. On turning up at the hotel the guy at reception was more interested in his Facebook use rather than serving me. He was not very helpful or friendly. I stayed in room 108 which was just horrible. The decor was from the 70's and very dirty. It was a twin room with two single beds pushed together. The beds were very old and you just sunk down into them. The bathroom was also very dirty and kept flooding when having a shower. The shower kept falling off the wall, in fact everything was falling off the walls. I don't think I have been in a worse hotel. Sleeping on the streets would have been cleaner and more comfortable.

Stained bedding, dirty room, blocked drains, no wifi in rooms, expensive for a hole!
Noisey, hot rooms, but does have a lift, can't comment on breakfast as chose not to venture
there after looking at the cleanliness of the rooms.

I stayed at Cordial in September 2012. What a dump hole. Linens are .........., the rooms are........, and most important of all, there are bed bugs. Do not stay at Cordial. I read some of the reviews for this hotel prior going to Amsterdam, but now I realize that there are people who don't give a penny about their health. I just can't again explain the nightmare I went through for just that one night I stayed there. First thing in the morning, picked up my stuff and got the hell out of there. Plain and simple, don't go there.

Room Tip: Yeah, here's a tip: Stay the hell away from Cordial

Stayed at this hotel a few years ago and absolutly loved it! so decided to go back when i decided to visit amsterdam again. the hotel is within walking distance to almost everything when you get to the airport you can get a train direct to amsterdam central, when you are off the train walk straight down the main road past two tram stops and there is the hotel not far at all, never had to order a taxi at any point in our whole stay theres so much around! the hotel itself has gone down market since the last time i stayed, the main thing was breakfast (pretty much none existant no hot food couldnt even get toast main things were ham or cheese sandwich - a dutch thing i suppose) bedrooms were basic but comfortable enough. if you just want a cheap get away and local to all things then this is the hotel for you, from past exeprience i do know the rooms are quite small so me and my mate paid a extra 30 euros for whole trip and upgraded to a triple room so much more space definatley worth the extra few quid even though we didnt need the third bed.
