Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Hotel has a wonderful location and the prices were good. We had a triple toom which was spacious enough but lacked storage space and the TV was old. The bathroom was refurbished but there were bare wires exposed and there was no plug for the hairdryer provided.
It is hard to improve on the space in such an historic location but the carpets need to be changed. They smell old. The bedsheets fluffed on everything so my black pants became gray
Other than that the staff were nice enough and I really enjoyed Amsterdam.

The pros of this hotel is its location. It is in the center of the center of town. The cons are that it's old, the carpets are dirty, the sheets are torn, the walls have holes and the bathroom reeks. No elevator. Although we were assured that there is always a staff person at the "desk", 50% of the time we entered or left the hotel there was no one there. Would not stay here again.

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.
