“Too far from the central area and just a B&B”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just come back from a long weekend in Amsterdam and unfortunately as much as we enjoyed the City, this 'Hotel' didn't help too much!

The staff were fine, lovely chatty bunch - even one of the staff used to live in our hometown so that was nice...no issues here.

We didn't take them up on Breakfast as it was 10 Euro and in my opinion looking at it, not worth that...better to take a trip down the road to find a steak house or local Dutch eaterie.

It was also very clean, neat tidy, good bed...but that's where it ends...it's not a Hotel, just a glorified B&B.

Bad points: A few of these reviews say it is good location, I would say it's a fair trek to Centraal Station or even Dam Square...also some of the taxi drivers didn't know where it was and before you ask, yes we were using the regulated ones with blue licence plates!

The radiators were lovely and warm as it was pretty chilly, but there was no air at all...even when we opened a window - this was dificult in our room as we were bottom floor just behind the smoking area out back...lucky for us, no-one was out there or we wouldn't have been able to open the window. Our room number was 021.

The decor was pretty poor and things were falling to bits. The cupboard wasn't fixed correctly and some wood laminate was peeled off the bedrest. The lamps next to the bed were hitting our heads and also the bed was that close to the wall that the shelf above it caused a headache when we woke up and hit it trying to get up in the morning.

It's a cheap hotel for the money (we got a good deal through Superbreaks) but we won't be going here again. If you do want to be in this area, try the Marriott or Best Western in the same area, I'm sure they will be much better and not too much more of the lolly either.

Our final gripe was thata couple of friends were staying in room 301 and getting to it was a health and safety hazard - we had to go around a spiral staircase where steps were no more than a few centimetres wide...not good!

The rest of the holiday was great and as we were only bedding down for the night it was ok enough to get two stars (I was going to give it one...)

We will be back to Amsterdam, but not to this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't get 301 as the stairs are a health risk!

We booked a budget double room and we got budget twin room... In the bathroom was something (engine??), what made noise all night, so it was difficult to fall asleep. At least the location is very good.

Super small, no windows, no air, absolutely no ventilation (not even a vent.tube) – I’m not even sure whether this is legal in Holland?? Every sound was hearable – even the sounds of a spoon mixing sugar in somebody’s cup in the lobby.

Furniture – picked up from the street. Toilet and flooding shower – behind a carton wall in the room, a little closet within the closet.
Stayed as a couple – a gap of 0,5 m. between beds would appear if tried to come closer.
Holding far- stretched hands is all you can do in this bed. Mattresses with huge stains. When the beds moved, could see empty medicine boxes, and piles of trash under them.
Price – 150 euros per 2 nights. It was the Amsterdam pride week, but still - we come from Lithuania for the Pride, its about a half of min.salary there, and for this...we stayed in the closet. Trying to complain did no good, the service men are trained to refuse any claims... poor folks, I'd be ashamed to work there even for a day!
Do not stay there. Whatever You think, it's worse than You imagine it is!

I liked the staff of this hotel. They were very professional and courteous. My only advice to would-be customers is, if you seek the budget rate, that's what you'll get as far as room accomodation. I had my experience in my life with clostophobia. After explaining this condition to the staff, they accomodated me with a different room. However, I would stay at this hotel again when in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Be prepared for a small room if you go the budget rate. Not too bad if traveling solo. But if you a...

Me and a friend stayed in the budget room and i know what you will be thinking what do you expect from a budget room. But trust me have you seen the rooms where you can keep your luggage after you checked out... well thats what they give us a cupboard with a bed in it. it was so small and didnt even have have a window it was hot stuffy and the beds were uncomfortable. not a proper door on the toilet so when your mates going toilet you might as well join him. im not writing a bad review of the hotel it was clean and the staff was polite and spoke English and in a good location. just whatever you do dont stay in the budget rooms and in particular room 22 i wouldnt have my worst enemy stay there thats how bad it is
