“3 night stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in a room with shared bathroom and shower in May 2012. The room was very nice and warm, the bed amazingly comfortable; the only problem was the disgusting smell in the bathroom and the clogged shower The staff is incredibly nice and helpful and the location is perfect.

Room Tip: Choose room with private bathroom

We stayed there 4 nights.The staff was very helpful and friendly,they helped us about anything we needed to know.
the location is great (for us at least) since its 2 minutes walk from the Tram stations which lead to the centeral in around 15 minutes.
the bed was very comfortable and the shower\bathroom were very clean all the time.
The breakfeast was very good. The room is a bit small but nice.
If we will have a chance we will surely come back since the price is worth it.

Ofir & Polina.

Room Tip: there are 2 types of rooms without showers & bathroom inside. always ask for the bigger one.

After reading some of the reviews, I'm compelled to share our experience from Sept./Oct. 2010.

The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was of good quality and a nice bonus. The wireless, while not especially fast, was adequate and worked consistently when we needed it. Being able to rent quality bicycles at the hotel was very nice as well.

Do beware: the stairs are incredibly steep, very typical for traditional Amsterdam houses but atypical for USers!

First impression, we had the door shut on us & were left standing on the doorstep for 5 minutes while the owners son found out whether they had room for us.

Told us there was only one room available and it was 90euros, (pretty pricy for a room that was obvioulsy just being cleaned as we checked in!!)

Owner requested cash payment up front without even asking if wanted to see the room first.

Room actually wasn't a bad size & had the basic facilities expected of a 1 star hotel, even though the climb up the steep spiral staircase (with 4 bicycle panniers) was a mission with other guests wanting to come down.

The room VERY dusty & dirty in places that you would expect a monkey to be able to clean, i.e. picture frames, top of TV, door frames we even wondered whether the sheet/pillows had actually been changed as they weren't crisp like freshly cleand sheets should be and we had to resort to sniffing them to find out...I still have my doubts!

The breakfast room, (which doubled as the reception/internet cafe/general sitting area) had that strong musty smell of wet-dog you often get associated with things that haven't been cleaned properly.

Breakfast was actually OK. Had the usual Dutch ham&cheese breakfast as well as some interesting cakes & cereals but it CLEARLY wasn't organic (as described in Lonely Planet)

Just a brief comment... (neither good nor bad), the owners weren't bike-enthusiasts as described in Lonely Planet guide, they didn't express a single comment of interest in our bikes/trip. So dont trust Lonely Planet!!

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else!

Don't give them your credit card #!! I gave mine via email to reserve a room. When I had to cancel my trip, I notified them via email MORE THAN A MONTH in advance. They were non-responsive, and proceeded to charge me for the first night's stay anyway. I have had no luck getting them to refund my money, and still no response after multiple attempts to contact. Make sure to get them to produce a written cancellation policy; They never provided me with one, and I could not find one on their website.
