Bicycle Hotel

Reviewed March 17, 2013

Basic but comfortable hotel with a hostel feel about it. The numerous staff who seem to change on a daily basis are all multi-linqual, very friendly and extremely helpful. A little off the beaten track but only a 15 minute tram ride from the centre.

Stayed for 2 nights here and it was a very pleasant experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was small but adequate for my stay and the bed was comfortable. Fortunately there was only 1 flight of "Amsterdam special" stairs to climb!
The breakfast room was light and pleasant and the food more than adequate to set you up for the day. The bike hire is great, there was a problem with my first one but I was quickly given another which was fine. The free WiFi is also a nice touch.
All in all a good hotel and much better than some of the cheap central hotels for a similar price. The quiet location was good and only a short tram ride from Centraal. I even walked back from Damrak in under 30 mins. I'd definitely go back. Could do with better directions though, it's not clear you have to cross the Ceintuurbaan but once I'd realised it was easy enough to find.

Great location - close to market, 24h supermarket, ATM machine, tram. Very helpfull and friendly staff. Rooms are small but clean, have to highlight very comfortable beds and pillows, wi-fi worked well. Toilets and showers clean. Also very good breakfast (considered that is included in price). Free PC with an internet connection. Would definitely recommend to friends and would return again. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Very steep stairs, especialy between groundfloor and 1st floor, so if you have many luggages or chil...

Lovely, small hotel, slightly tricky to find but in quiet area about 15mins tram ride from central station. Extremely steep stairs that became the talking point of the holiday!. Basic but warm and clean rooms, ideal for the busy tourist I wanted to bring my bed back with me as it was soooo comfy! All the staff - they changed all the time - were very friendly and catered for our every need. Good breakfast which set us up for the day. Would definatley return.

This is a clean and tidy little hotel that gives you what you expect from a hotel at this price.
Nice area with an excelent market place nearby.
If you are taking kids, have any problems climbing stairs or have a lot of luggage then make sure you are in the lower rooms, The stairs are more suited for mountain goats that us bi-peds.
The breakfast is excelent and sets you up for the day, the staff are nice and helpfull.
I will more than likley stay there again at next years ISE.

We stayed here from the 28th of January 2013 for 3 nights. The self-catering apartment (adjacent to the main hotel) was very clean, with separate toilet and shower, and a good kitchen. The inside steps, up to the apartment, were very narrow, which is typical of these buildings. We were very close to the trams, Albert Market, and lots of shops. If you enjoy walking, you can actually get to most of the tourist places very easily from here. The continental breakfast was plentiful, and all the staff were great. We would highly recommend the apartments. We visited the Anne Frank Museum, and bought a 24 hour ticket for the canal bus, which was a cheap way of hop on/ff travel, and seeing most of the city. The weather wasn't great, expected for the time of year, but impressed at how many people still cycled in it!
