“I liked the Aadam Wilhelmina!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2006

We took a three-night stay in a double room at this excellent hotel in late January 2006 and found it to be totally different to the three reviews already posted.

It was very good value for money, adjacent to the No. 2 tram route which gets you to and from the centre of Amsterdam briskly, cheaply and safely. In fact, so conveniently was it situated that we never actually took the tram to the city centre in the mornings, but only used it for travelling back at night!

Travellers who must have a lift/elevator should perhaps not go there if using a minimal amount of effort is a problem, although we had to climb two sets of stairs to our room and only found the turn at the top of the second flight of stairs a bit of a challenge with narrow steps, but overseas visitors might like to consider that the traditional narrow but tall configuration of Dutch buildings makes this necessary. The able-bodied should NOT find it a challenge.

The bed was fine, as was the cleanliness of the room, the bathroom, and the breakfast area. The proprietors were friendly, and we shall certainly be going back there again, not least because the standard of clientele (at least when we were there) meant that there was no noise during the night, which is worth a lot!

The hotel was a diaster, we did not get what we paid for. I was taken awa for a suprise weekend for my birthday and it was more of a dissapointment for him who book the hotel.
We had what looked like a double bed, but underneath the top cover was two single bed with singe sheets. The reception area and the 'eating area' are in the same small room. Needlesss to say we did not eat there, even though the only thing you can get is breakfast.
The bathroom was clean, but there was no curtain on the bathroom window and the toilet and window are beside each other, people can easily see. The shower was also a diaster, the bathroom flooded very easily and we both got scalded the water was scarily hot.
And if you have a heart problem its a defintae no no. The stairs are like a ladder, basicaly straight up with small steps.
So we stayed out of the so called hotel as much as possible and enjoyed the city, though it is a good 20-25 mins walk! I would not reccommend this hotel to anyone. Very overpriced

The hotel was dark, dusty and smelly, the rooms were too small the bathroom did not even have mats to step on, the bedcovers were dirty and torn and we didnt even feel like touching them. It is terrible the hotel makes you pay upfront so you are stuck with a terrible hole. The steps were steep and there was no elevator to help with luggage.It totally messed up our vacation

The room we stayed in in early July wasn't anything to write home about.I didn't see any 'newly renovated' rooms. The double we stayed in was small no a-c.Very hot and everything smelled of smoke.We had requested a non smoking room but there are none.To get to the room we were in we had to climb an almost vertical narrow stairwell.We were not impressed with this over-priced hotel.

I booked this hotel, but there was confusion with the booking agents, who told me my room had been cancelled. I was then deducted the full amount from my bank account and the hotel has been very inflexible in terms of accepting there was a genuine mix up and wouldn't even acknowledge the problems they have liasing with their booking agents.


They were arrogant and rude. Be careful.

This is a hotel with basic but good, clean facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful both when booking and while staying at the hotel. Breakfast was a simple traditional cold buffett that made a good starter for the days exporing. Being only about 75 metres from the tram stop this hotel is an ideal base to explore Amsterdam and at a price far less than a city centre hotel.

An excellent Two star hotel - should actually be a three star. Friendly star, super rooms and great room rates. Breakfast is a good spread buffet.
