Hotel Beursstraat
Ranked #352 of 375 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Stayed here 1st-4th march 2013.
Rooms were clean,beds are wood nailed together with prison mattress and itchy blankets.
We only needed someplace to sleep,but hotel decided to turn heating OFF (its winter time and damm cold) not good.
Hotel smells a little but that seems normal for cheap hotels in dam.
You can smoke weed in room but open the windows.
Not likely to stay here again.

Like first, the location is absolutelly great. The prices of the accommodation for Amsterdam are more than friendly. I have been here with group of 8 friends. Nobody of us complain about the accommodation. Furniture is old but ok, sice of rooms is small but ok, bathroom is absolutelly ok (everything works), heating works well too. We used the rooms for sleeping and the sleeping quality is good. Just to compare, two years ago we were in 4* hotel, price was minimal double and the accommodation was very similar, i can say, no difference, ok, 4* hotel had TV in room.
Hotel Beursstraat = you get, what you pay for, dont expect 5* servis for few EURs. I dont have problem to stay here again. Good location for exploring the city.
p.s. We got very late check out for free, great bonus. Big thx to helpfull stuff :-)

The location of this hotel is fantastic, you're less than a 5 minute walk away from the red light district, Central Station, Dam square etc.
We just wanted somewhere really cheap and centrally located as we were only there for one night to have a few beers and watch Ajax v Real Madrid.
The hotel is very outdated but clean, it's fine to go with "the lads" if you're just looking for a place to crash but if you're going with your partner then pay the extra money and stay somewhere nicer.

When I got there I thought I would kill my travel agent whom I always trusted. I am not used to luxurious conditions but that was too much. It was extremely small and old, the bathroom was tiny and clean but smelled like hospital. It was frequeshly cold in the room. Of course no hairdryer though every place I went before had at least one and I didn't bother to take one. We had to move our bed from the windows and it became a bit better. Also had to ask the staff to turn on the heating which later on heated us more than well. As for the bed I was disgusted by it. The blanked was like in prison and only a small, doubtfully clean sheet separated my body from it. I spent there 3 nights and now I am so happy to be home in a clean nice bed:)
To sum up, location is great and the hotel is quite good for its ranking. For me it was not pleasant. I hope a lot of people would share my opinion. Definitely not a nice place for couples to stay. The place is a hole.

Altogether there were 5 of us, all guys and by no means accustomed to high standards, but this place was downright terrible. We stayed for just the one night (thankfully) but that was more than enough to get a good feeling for the place.
The rooms were filthy. The person that had made the beds had obviously done so while smoking as cigarette ash was under the covers and between the sheets. I ended sleeping in my sleeping bag on top of the blankets. The location is the only positive here as it is very central and walking distance from the train station.

I booked Hotel Beursstraat through a travel agency online, i then read the reviews and thought what have i let myself in for, but could'nt change the booking. and im glad we didnt as we arrived to find the hotel in a great location , very central , we arrived in the morning and it was no problem getting in our room early and the reception man was very polite and asked if everything was ok . yes the room is very basic, bed , shower , toilet , sink , but the shower was powerful, the bathroom was clean the bed was comfortable and clean as i checked the sheets before entering. the hotel was quiet , very quiet for a central location. the towels were a bit small more like a hand towel but thats my only complaint. we were able to leave our bags for the hotel to look after for a few hours. so all in all a very nice stay . you get what you pay for and the staff are very nice.

Room Tip: i would say stay on top floor, but it will be a walk up some windy stairs. we satyed on floor 1 room...

Me and 5 of my friends, all typical, 18 years olds (mixed boys and girls) booked a holiday to Amsterdam with a travel agent. We wanted something very central, basic and cheap. However, booking hotel Beursstraat was a huge mistake. We didn't read the reviews until after we had booked but we thought it couldn't be as bad as the reviews say. They were.
We saw one review saying they had rats but we just assumed it was an exaggeration. It wasn't. There was a MOUSE in our room on the last night!!!! After I confronted the so called 'staff' at reception, they told me they weren't prepared to do anything about it. I carried on asking him what was he going to do he just ignored me and walked away. The most miserable man you could ever meet. Does't really surprise me though, he is working at Hotel Beursstraat.
We booked a triple room and it was so small, even for three young girls.
- Nowhere to put our suitcases
- Dirty cover over our bed
- Didn't clean our sheets or room once in 5 nights
- Lumpy, dirty pillows
- one plug for the all three of us
- We were given three hand towels for 3 people for 5 nights

The stairs were an issue, but they would be more of an issue with older people or families with young children. We were only in room number 18 and we had to climb about 4 of the steep staircases.

Hotel Beursstraat is classed as a 1* hotel. I don't see how it has even managed to get 1*. I know hostels that are cleaner than this with better reception staff.
We are not a fussy group, just 6 teenagers wanting a basic clean hotel with half decent staff.
DO NOT BOOK HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!!!
