“Excelent location budget- friendly in heart of Amsterdam!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Excelent location budget- friendly in heart of Amsterdam!!! Easy to go to the central station, and near cafes, restaurantes, nightclubs and main young attractions. Typical Amsterdam house :) Cozy and great room :) the staff is great!!! they received some packages for me while i was not in the hotel and kept for me until i arrived.

really liked this hotel. great location, only a few mins walk to Dam Square & all the other attractions. our room was small but comfy. there wasnt much of a view from our room but we didnt mind that. windows opened out wide to let the air flow in. stairs a little steep but not a huge problem. breakfast was disgusting, scrambled eggs & bacon were cold.

Booked this hotel back in November 2012, so when we arrived and found that we had a room in the attic of a traditional Amsterdam house was a surprise. Three steep staircases, you needed climbing gear. This would have been a real bad surprise for someone old or very young.
The room was very small and in need of decorating but clean, bathroom was a shared with two other rooms but very clean.
Location good five minute walk to dam square, right next to the bulb market. Breakfast basic but good, scrambled egg, toast, bacon, cheese, ham, cereals and croissants. Roof above dinning area glazed affair which was in a very poor state, cracked glass and dirty.
Hotel needs a bit of TLC all round, shame because very good location.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a low room number below 30

Agora is a very nice hotel suited for budget travelers. Located near the Flower Market, it provides easy accessibility to all the attractions of the city. The shopping district, Dam Square are all very close. There is a Supermarket around the corner.The tram station is a minute's walk. It is clean, comfortable with a good hot breakfast. And the rooms are good size compared to other Amsterdam Hotels. The staff is friendly.We would definitely stay there again.

Quaint Amsterdam hotel. Central location, 3-4 tram stops from train station, walking distance to museums, restaurants. No lift. Attentive, informative staff, great rates, fantastic American-style breakfast. Look forward to coming back!
