I admit that I didn't read the reviews before I booked this place. So after we dragged our luggage from Central train station and after a long walk (the walk from Central Train Station is about 20 minutes), my sister and I finally buzzed for the door to be opened. We swung the door open and surprise! A very long steep steep staircase awaited us. I was a bit shocked and dreaded lugging the luggage up the narrow staircase. I saw images of the room on their website and it looked pretty decent. When I booked I used the 5% off coupon code from the site, it still wasn't the cheapest because later I looked and prices actually went down another 20% for the nights I booked. I booked Clemens for three nights.
The service was pleasant and amiable. We were placed on the "2nd floor." The rooms were newly remodeled. The rooms are quite compact. The bathroom was even smaller. You had to shift your knees to the side when using the bathroom. I guess for a budget hotel, it was decent. The location is great as it is within walking distance( less than 5 minutes away) to the Anne Frank Museum. There is a large supermarket nearby. Dam Square is also very close by. A simple breakfast was also included. The breakfast consisted of yogurt, simple ham and cheese, croissants, and an array of breads you can toast. Drinks included coffee, tea, milk, and juices. The helper was very courteous and nice. I would give Hotel Clemens above average experience. When I left, I asked the front desk to help me with the luggage. After a long day of walking, the stairs was a deterrent for me. I didn't think the price was super cheap for a two star. However, service was great.
