“Budget hotel but good stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is a budget hotel but it appears to be connected to the larger hotel next door which was being decorated and upgraded. Free tea and coffee in rooms and breakfast was continental but plenty of choice. Steep stairs but lift. Staff helpful. Very good position on the canal and near shops, trams etc Room was clean and basic

If you are looking for more than simple bed and breakfast this may not be the place for you. If like my partner and I you want a comfortable place to stay whilst spending the days exploring the City its perfect. The room was clean and warm, the staff friendly and the hotel was situated just yards from the tram system. We would definitely stay at the hotel again.

Our hotel booking was supposed to be at the Quentin Hotel. (right next door) but when we went to check in they told us that we were actually booked in this hotel. Quentin being a 3 star hotel and the "sister" hotel to King Hotel, which is a 2 star. We had a group of 9 people requiring 5 rooms. They moved 3 rooms to the Golden Bear Hotel, a 1 star hotel, and 2 in the King hotel. The rooms were extremely sub par, with electrical outlets hanging off the wall with wires exposed. The shower reminded me of a high school locker room shower complete with the liquid soap one would expect in a public bathroom. The included breakfast was piss poor at best. The coffee was black mud, even with added creamer. The bread was stale, and the eggs were spoiled.

Room Tip: Do Not Book Here!!!

The main issue I noticed was the room service or the cleaning service , it is a worldwide hotel standard to knock the door three times before entering the room except in this hotel , they open the door and then say house keeping while they are walking into the room !
The room was ok , we expected a bit more for the price we paid however the location of the hotel is good
The check-in was rather slow however the receptionist was friendly and helpful

The hotel has a great location and is a good starting point if you are going to the center. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are relatively clean. This is all good that can be said. Our room was very small. So small you couldn't open the closet door because of the bed. The bed (they considered it a queen bed) was too small for two people and the mattress was too soft. At the end of our stay we wanted o print our tickets for our flights and they charged us 1euro per page, which I think is too much and a bit annoying consiering we are already guests of the hotel. If you decide to go to this hotel ask for the size of the room. Our friends were at a lower floor and their room was considerably bigger than ours.

Room Tip: All the rooms on top floor are very small. If you want a bigger room try second floor.

My new wife and I stayed at this hotel whilst touring Europe on our honeymoon - (when we mentioned this to the hotel we also recieved a very kind complimentary upgrade).

A nice small and charming hotel on the canal. We didn't arrive in Schipol until 6.45pm and arrived at the hotel about 7.15pm to a friendly and welcoming receptionist. Check in very easy and informative.
Free wifi and a good speed.

The room was a simple one. Double bed, cosy bathroom (shower only) and simple tea and coffee facilities. Bed had springs sticking out into the top of the mattress..but we found some additional duvets and placed these over the sheets which made it much more comfortable.

Breakfast included.
Served between 7am and 10am.
Very simple continental breakfast with a nice range of meats and cheeses, cereals, yoghurts and beverage.

A nice 2 min walk to restaurants and bars and clubs. Great sports bar around the corner with all you can eat ribs for 10euros.

Would stay again if a short stay in Amsterdam is required.
