I had 3 nights break in this hotel. The room was very clean and smell good. Towels changed every day. Toilet in the room very clean and there was a shower gel and shampoo displayed in the shower even a air fresher we had in the toilet. Also we had a pack of 4 tissue rolls in the wardrobe and 2 glasses to drink something in the room. Our tv didn't work at all. The message in the screen was "no signal". Very good breakfast "ham, salami, 2 kinds of cheese, 2 kinds of bread, eggs, cold/hot milk, hot coffe, fresh juice, 2 kinds of jam, nuttela and butter". Also hotel provides many convenience products that you can buy if you need as umbrellas, food, drink etc... Hotel people were friendly. If you go out you have to leave the room key at reception. Also guest visitors are not allowed to go to the room. Wi fi work fine. Matresses are very poorly. Need a change. Room looks old but is fine if you don t spend too much time on it :-)

This hotel is within spitting distance of everywhere.If your fit, you will not need a lot for transportation about the town. The hotel is 5 walk minutes from Amsterdam Central Station.

The staff are very helpful. The property has some great views, but the the rooms are very small, the property is dated and decor and fittings are old. But the rooms are clean & the linen is fresh.

Its not on a par with budget chains, but its strength is its location, the red light district is close, too close for families perhaps .

Room Tip: If your going to Amsterdam for a day and you want to be close to center, then its perfect. But its n...

I found this place to be one of the cheapest hotel (more like hostel) with private room. The location is right in the Red Light Distrct, facing the canal. It is about 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal.

Me and my 2 friends stayed in a quadruple room. The room is located at 2nd floor. We had a terrible time dragging our heavy luggage as there is no elevator in the hotel and the stairs are steep and narrow. However, i have no complaint about the room. The room is quite small but clean. The bathroom is clean and spotless. There is hot shower, which is good. Free breakfast in the morning. Toast, ham, fruits, egg, juice, cereal, coffee, tea and milk. Very basic but enough for a good start.

The staff is quite cold and rude. If i'm in Amsterdam again, I might find other hotel to stay.

Room Tip: Request for room at lower floor if you have heavy luggage as there is no elevator in the hotel.

DO NOT STAY HERE! THIS PLACE IS A HELL HOLE!
Firstly, the receptionist was rude and unhappy to help me with my queries. You have to walk through a dingy and dismal 'restaurant' to get to the rooms (If you can class it as a restaurant, more like a soup kitchen.) Upon arrival of the rooms, I felt like crying. The shower/bathroom has mold growing everywhere, the windows were not fitted for its purpose, I was forced to sleep in my scarves and gloves! I traveled alone to Amsterdam for 3 night break, but i did not stay alone, as there was a RAT IN MY ROOM! I cannot stress how disgusting this hotel is. DO NOT STAY HERE. Stay in a hostel instead!

Room Tip: Pick a room in another hotel!
