1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

It's position is great. I can't argue with that. But it's awful inside. It's not so much grubby but really tatty and tired and miserable. But what is the worst aspect was two very rude men who who booked us in and dealt with the matter of the room door lock not working.
Anyway, bed mattress was stained with urine. The blankets had holes in them.
And i paid 200 Euros for two nights bed and breakfast.

When you go to Amsterdam visit Restaurant RED on the Keizersgracht. Best meal I've ever had! Ever. Beautiful!

We had 2 spacious rooms with very comfortable double beds. I had a large sofa in mine and my colleague had 2 comfy armchairs. The rooms did not match the description on the website of a 12 sq m room each with single beds! Also they were not in the main part of the hotel but in the house next door so to reach the reception and breakfast we had to go out into the elements. Also there was no room service so beds weren't made - which I liked. My colleague had a view of a lovely garden and everything worked in her room. I had problems with the lack of a bath plug and a shower that had no fitting to suspend it off the wall. But it was a very quiet nights sleep in a delightful old Amsterdam house with a view of the canal from our breakfast table. Magic. I'll stay there again.

Very dissapointed with the room size, cleanliness, lack of cubboards, tea/coffee facilities in room// I won't go on .... Other than to saty this should be classed as a low grade low budget hotel, the price we paid was way to much for what we got, it was the web site that makes it look nice.. Location was brilliant pity about every thing else ....

I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was very clean, I didn't had any problems like dirty bed or carpet. I had a direct view over the canal. The price was pretty good, lower than other places. The location is also pretty good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I booked 2 nights during a weekend.
The hotel is perfectly located just a few steps from Rembrandtplein and its Restaurants/Bars/Coffeeshops, and also from Amsterdam Centraal.
There is also a great bar just next door which is pretty cool when you fancy one last drink when you get back to the hotel.
The hotel was quite clean (except the carpets). At least the bathroom and bed are perfectly clean.
If you can, avoid staying on first floor (to avoid lots of noise from the hotel entrance : door banging, drunk english teenagers coming back drunk and loud, cleaners talking very loud in the corridor in the morning).
And if you combine 1st floor + street view, you will just not be able to sleep, unless you are really drunk :-p

Overall I got what I paid for, but next time i would adjust a bit my booking and ask for a quiet room.

Room Tip: try not to get a room on first floor. If you do, not with street view!
