Stayed here alone during a 3 day trip right before Christmas. If you don't want to read on, in short, this hotel is great. When I arrived in Amsterdam after an overnight flight from the USA, I was extremely tired and just wanted to rest in my hotel room. My arrival time, however, was pre-dawn and by the time I made my way to Hotel Abba it was only about 10am which was well before their check-in time of what I believe was 3pm. I went up anyway and asked if I could check-in early and the man at the desk was very accommodating, he checked to make sure my room was cleaned and then quickly got me inside. Room itself was very clean and though small and without en-suite bathrooms, it did have a hot and cold hand sink and opened out to a common balcony. Common bathroom and shower was clean and I never had a problem there. Hotel Abba does have a free breakfast every morning, but I never did end up going down and eating breakfast. Also, a grocery store entrance is located about 5 feet from the hotel's entrance which is very convenient if you don't want to go far (although there is other food on Overtoom) or the weather is bad. I walked throughout my stay in Amsterdam but I do know trams run up and down Overtoom and there is a stop right in front of the hotel. Abba is also one of the very few hotels in Amsterdam that still allows smoking, although fire alarms in the rooms are posted with a sign that claims a 1000 euro fine for setting it off (as I said before my room had a balcony you can go out on, but just opening the balcony doors a bit was sufficient to not set off alarms).
