Sara's Boutique Hotel
Ranked #239 of 374 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The stairs, room, and bathroom are all a joke. The shared bathroom is so small that you can't even sit down without your feet touching both the toilet and wall in front of you. Other than that, it is a nice clean hotel with a simple breakfast included everyday. The staff is incredibly nice and always willing to answer questions.

It was okay to stay, but stairs are very steep like climbing Everest. Breakfast was good.
I think room prices are a bit higher than this type of hotels. However It was okay to stay for two nights. Friendly staff.

The Hotel Crystal is right around the corner from Ann Frank house, and about a 7 minute walk to the tram stop. The a.m. breakfast was very tasty and plentiful for our needs. We may stay again, if needed.

Room Tip: we have a disabled child, so we usually try to get a room on first or 2nd floor. no pool or fitne...

If anyone would just purely like to chill out in this hotel, close enough to the town center to be able to discover all the beauties of Amsterdam from a walking distance (even at night), especially with friends, then this hotel is absolutely value for money.

For the price you pay this hotel is up there, when talking about services and interior, considering that it's cheaper than most hostels in Amsterdam. The location is great close to the center but far enough away to give you a good nights rest. Breakfast is included in the price and with the small garden in the back it's quite nice. Only one downside was that our room, although fitted with it's own bathroom did not have any soap or showergel. All in all very good price/quality ratio, would come back again.
