“Tiny room but excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We chose this hotel because of the good location, and it included breakfast and most importantly because it was one of the cheapest options in the area.

Our room was TINY. There is no where to put the suitcases but leave them upright by the door. We only slept in there so the size was only a problem when we needed to open the suitcases because there is just no where to lie them flat other than on the bed (one at a time). We didn't get hung up on this because of the low cost of the room.

Upon arrival a man helped us bring the suitcases to our room (lots of steep, narrow stairs). The man at the front desk gave us free drinks and lots of maps, travel guides, etc which were extremely helpful. The service is excellent at this hotel.

The breakfast area is small but you can always get a table. Breakfast items included a loaf cake, croissants, yogurt, cheese and white and brown bread. There is coffee and tea and orange juice. I'm not certain but I think the coffee stays there all day and they replenish it as it runs out so if you want a coffee in the afternoon you can help yourself.

The only issue we had was the noise from the church bells that runs every 15 minutes all day and night. It made sleep very difficult. That and there is no AC in the rooms.

It's a short walk to Dam Square and RLD. Anne Frank House is pretty much just across the canal, very close. If you plan to go there make sure you buy your tickets online! We got an 8:40am slot and when we arrived at 8:30 the line was already down the block and around the corner (it opens at 9). We were so happy we got to just walk right in!

I would definitely stay here again if I got a room away from the church bells.

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate hubby's 50th birthday. We'd booked a room with balcony (412) and there were flowers waiting which was a lovely touch. The room was teeny but had everything we needed, the balcony looked over the main road and we could see the canal, Westerkirk and Homomonument.

Breakfast was fine - the biggest, fluffiest croissants I've ever seen and the staff friendly and helpful. Oxygen was almost needed as we reached our room but overall, this hotel is perfectly situated - and is right opposite one of the hop-on hop-off bus stops.

One tip - if you want to go to Anne Frank's house (and it's good to read the book first but not essential) book online before you go. The queue (also visible from our room) stretched right round the Westerkirk and was slow moving. We'd booked a time online and went straight in.

Thanks to all at the Nadia Hotel.

This little hotel was in a gem of a location for getting the vibe and sights of the real Amsterdam. It was close to the canals, Ann Frank museum and a relaxed walking distance to many restaurants, cafes, trams, red light district and railway station. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and tidy, and we had an excellent street view from our balcony. When you arrive and ring the door bell ,the staff come down and carry your bags up the very steep flight of stairs, same again when you depart. I would definitely stay at Hotel Nadia again.

Stayed as a couple july 2014, can confirm these rooms are TINY, but have all u need. Perfect central location, clean, basic but adequate breakfast. Steep stairs as expected in a canal house. We had no issues with noise from neighbours, street or traffic at all. If u want to visit Anne Frank house then book online before u go. Beware of FREE tour of RLD, they will pressure u to pay well over 10 euros each. Lovely city, recommended hotel as long as u realise it's basic. We loved it as a central cheap mid season break.

I stayed at this hotel with a group I friends and loved the location. The hotel is just along the road from Dam Square and round the corner from the Anne Frank museum. I like to walk around to get a good feel for a city and I would say that everything you would want to visit is within walking distance from here.
The other reviews do make reference to 'the stairs!!' And yes they are the steepest stairs I've come across in a hotel! There is absolutely no way of avoiding them as soon as the front door is opened they are straight in front of you and you can't see the top. Luckily our room was on the first floor (half way up the first flight of stairs) but others were a couple of floors up and it really was a trek to get there. The rooms are quite dark and retain all heat of the day, a fan was provided but it was still possibly the hottest room I've ever slept in. Staff are really friendly and speak very good English just like everyone else that we came across in Amsterdam. The front door is operated on a buzzer and you are able to come and go anytime of day and night.
Would I stay again? In a group and because of the price - yes. If I was to visit with my husband - probably not but don't let that put you off!

I stayed 3 nights at Nadia Hotel with two friends. We shared a room with 3 beds at the first floor with windows to the street. The room size was small but very cosy and the equipment was with a fridge, TV, telephone etc. great. Everything-especially the bathroom- was very clean.
The staff is very very friendly and helpful. They carry your luggage up and down the "famous" stairs (very steep but therefore a great experience). There is a luggage room where you can store your luggage as long as you need after your check-out. You are welcomed with a free drink and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Also they are available 24 hours for your needs and after one day they even know in which room you're living without a look at the plan. The breakfast was delicious with different sorts of bread, marmalade, tea, coffee etc.
The location of the hotel is also perfect. You have a great view at Westerkerk and can walk within 5 minutes to Anne-Frank House, the next tram station, a supermarket and within 10 minutes to the famous Dam square.
All in all our stay was perfect and we'll come back at Nadia Hotel if we visit Amsterdam again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are rather loud.

We stayed at Nadia Hotel for one night. Staff friendly and accommodating. Great location, as its in the city centre. Very basic for 100 euro thou. They meet you at the door, and take your cases up and down the stairs. You have to climb many stairs, which are very steep to get to the 1st floor. Rooms are clean, but very small. Toilet was coming off the wall a bit, curtains had some cigarette holes. Breakfast was disappointing, only bread and cheese.

Its a great hotel, if you want to be in the centre of town. but would not stay more than one night. For two people, very cramped.
