“Far and basic”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

the hotel is relatively clean, but it is far from the centre of Amsterdam. also far from central station, you have to use public transport to get around. the staff was ok, we had no issues checking in or out. the room was very basic, a bit small. breakfast was not bad, good selection.

I think its expensive for the service they are providing. you can definitely find cheaper hotels in better locations in Amsterdam offering better value.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, and the first positive aspect is its location. Well situated in central amsterdam with a bus stop a close walking distant. Take bus nb 9 and u are at the heart of amsterdam. Room was ok but cleaning service needs major improvement. Breakfast selection included cheese ham cereal juices and coffee. We have no idea why one day they decided to charge us for breakfast although our reservation was on a b&b basis, but then we cleared it out with the reception. One last thing, watch out for the city taxes you have to pay once you check in as they are not quoted in reservation rate

Stayed here with 3 friends for my birthday weekend (Friday to Monday) easy to find, brilliant location and staff are friendly and so helpful, luggage storage which was great because we arrived before check in which meant we didn't have to carry our cases round with us)
However, on arrival after already paying for the hotel online we were told we had to pay an extra €47 due to taxes, when we got into our 4 person room ( #006) it was a good size room but didn't have windows that opened so it was very stuffy, bathroom had a funny smell, cleaning staff didn't take out the rubbish and was left in a pile by the door, wifi wasn't working while we were there. Breakfast was lovely, can't fault it lots of choice. Tv was huge but only English channels were tlc and Comedy Central which just kept playing the same thing on repeat. For a short break in amsterdam I would stay here again and recommend to a friend.

It was very clean,the staff were friendly, and it was in a great location for getting around amsterdam. Room was slightly small and was had basic facilities and decorations- everything seemed slightly-outdated apart from the huge TV. Double bed was two singles side by side and there was a mysterious hole in the floor patched up by iron wool.

Stayed at the hotel in late March. Due to the International Nuclear Summit in Amsterdam it was very difficult to get a hotel room but I succeed getting one at the Falcon Plaza.
The hotel is situated very central in Amsterdam and has a very friendly staff.
However these positive issues does not make up for a very disappointing experience.
The room I got (room # 100) must have been the smallest room in the hotel – only slightly bigger than a closet.
The bathroom was very small and it did not have any ventilation of any kind – other than leaving the door open. This fact combined with the fact that the window in the main room only had single glazing with dew building up making the entire room feeling very damp. Needless to say that various forms of mildew could be seen on the bathroom tiles.
I can state as a fact that I will not return to this hotel.

Room Tip: In any case room number 100 should be avoided

The staff at falcon plaza were extremely helpful and so nice and friendly. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The hotel is in a great destination walking distance to the red light district. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was welcoming. About a 10mins walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station. Once at the hotel the staff were friendly and easy to communicate with. The room was a surprise. It was clean and the furniture appeared new and cleaned. The TV was the largest I've seen in an hotel. Many channels from which to select. The beds were comfortable and made for a good sleep. Room was tidied each day and the tea & coffee was replenished. There were a few restaurants outside the hotel for reasonably priced breakfast. There is a Spar grocery shop across from the hotel if you want to get stuff to for sandwiches, snacks, water or drinks. You can borrow utensils and plates by asking staff.

From the hotel it is a short walk to the center of Amsterdam. I was able to discover a lot in and around the center including Harlem me extra at and the streets off Dam Square. If you can, buy a €10 (more expensive at the tourist info center) 24 hour day bus pass to go see places like Volendam and Marken and other places. They are worth the trip. Only about 30mins from the center.

To use many toilets, there's a charge. Even in McDonald's and the library you have to pay. Credit cards are not widely use in The Netherlands, so try to bring cash or debit card for cash withdrawal. Oh, visit the Library. Oh, don't forget to enjoy the city. Don't be afraid to get lost, you'll be surprise at what you discover. Enjoy!!
