We spent 1 night before cruise. Had a room on the top floor looking over the street. Very comfortable and big windows letting in lots of air. Kept windows open all night letting in lots of warm air. Staff could be friendlier and breakfast OK but could be better quality. Beware: order your own taxi as we paid 20euros to go to passenger terminal - a 5 minute drive. They appear to call a private company and seem to know them well. Next time we will walk!

we had booked a non-smoking room, however the room stank of smoke, and the hotel was fully booked, so we couldn't change rooms. A lot of noise from the street and no air-conditioning. At each breakfast, some of the food had ran out and nothing more came during the time we ate. Staff not very helpful/friendly. OK location.

I needed to stay in Amsterdam overnight between business meetings and found an inexpensive option in the city center of Amsterdam: Hotel Citadel. A very spartan single room on the fifth floor with a very strong shower, good pillows and bed. Nice view of the Nieuwe Kerk and the Palace. Plenty of sounds of Amsterdam to lull you to sleep, if you keep the window open. The hotel is right in the center of the city, easy to get everywhere.

There was continental breakfast included (but I had to be out early, so missed it). The personnel was very helpful, they locked up my laptop when I was out (the small jewelry safe in the room as too small). Speaking both English and Dutch, they can point you to local attractions, answer questions about Amsterdam and beyond.

Please know this is not a 5-star hotel. It is spartan, but it not a flophouse either. This is a good practical place to stay in the heart of Amsterdam!

Room Tip: I was traveling alone and took a single room looking over the city center. Keeping the window open...
