“Good value, clean, comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The hotel is very easy to find, just off leidseplein plaza which can be reached by bus in 30 minutes from the airport for 5 euros per person. This is only just out of the central area of Amsterdam off towards the west area. Very close walking distance to anything central, also if you are walking around the city the signposts always have leidseplein and marxinstraat on them (hotel is where these two meet) so you can always find your way home! On arrival and throughout our stay the staff were friendly and helpful, they were knowledgeable and happy to help with questions and site seeing and where to eat etc. Breakfast in the morning (at our time of staying) includes croissants, different breads to toast, cheeses, meats, selection of cereals and museli, milk and natural yoghurt, fruit, fairtrade honey and preserves, hard boiled eggs and the usual juices and hot drinks, everything was lovely and just what I needed in the morning. At 4pm til 5pm they did serve us some free dutch pastries that were amazing, hopefully they will continue to do this.The rooms were smallish but had a good sized wardrobe to put our clothes and suitcase in out of the way. The bathroom again was small but clean and everything worked just fine, except the shower is not a power shower. It came with eco friendly soap by the sink and shower which I used throughout the stay and didn't upset sensitive skin. The mattress was not firm it was squishy but you don't sink into it, it was very comfortable! Comes with extra pillows and blankets. The rooms are slightly quirky they have interesting but still clean and simple decor with small touches like a novel to read on the shelf on the wall which I liked. The hotel loves their cat and the walls of the stairwell are adorned with lovely canvases of cat art! The stairs you have probably already read about are tight and windy and so getting a heavy suitcase, or heavily intoxicated body up and down them is tricky, so its not for anyone who has difficult walking or manouvering themselves. But as a lot of people say this is typical of the Amsterdam architechture and is more traditional than a typical massive hotel chain building. All in all its great value for money and the location is great, I personally would stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the road the other half are not, the road is ok but I did hear ambulance sirens etc...

I found this Hotel to be very pleasant. Extremely convenient with an excellent location. Breakfast was well done and staff was very pleasant. However, in my room my bedsheets had what looked like food stains and the bathroom towel had red spotted stains on it. I would have really enjoyed staying here for my two nights if only I did not encounter the uncleanliness.

When in Amsterdam you can't but try to live as the locals do, even if just for a while. La Boheme is your perfect Amsterdam house with an incredible stairs experience: the staircase of this typical building is narrow and steep. But it is a must experience that was enjoyed even by my husband who had to carry our enormous suitcase to the forth floor and back in this house without an elevator. If you are careful enough not to break your neck, you will certainly enjoy this everyday 'trip'!

Apart from this first impression of the La Boheme hotel, there were more to come, all of them very pleasant: the staff are all magically friendly being a fine reflection of this quality of the Dutch-way-to-be; our room on the top floor had a private bathroom which was more than enjoyable; we could regulate the heating according to our needs, croissants at breakfast were spectacular, the room was very clean etc.

But the most important advantages of this hotel were its location - in the heart of A'dam around the corner of the Leidesplein, so whenever we got tired of our infinite walks around the city we could return to the hotel without even having to take a tram - and its value - this is one of the most economic options of staying in Amsterdam but not in a hostel and not our of the city center.

Honestly, I was expecting a 2-stars experience, but, fortunately, had a chance to live a 4-nights life of an Amsterdam family. Amazing La Boheme!

Room Tip: room 16 has a private bathroom, for sure

Good location, small rooms but clean, friendly staff. I would for sure recommand this hotel to visitors to Amsterdam. From this hotel the main attractions can be reached by foot (max 20-30 minutes walk).

I stayed 1 night here. Small hotel near leidseplein.

They received us very friendly staff, good price. Room was clean and quite big. A safe included.

The breakfast was nice.

Only the stairs, it was hard to get a big suitcase up. As it was hard to carry and these small stairs, we were scared to fall.

A staffmember helped us :)
The bed a little soft, but just my opinion.

We loved the cat btw.
Can recommend this hotel to anyone

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night on January 9th. If you are arriving by plane, take the 197 bus (5 Euro) to "Leidseplein" about a 30 minute ride. The hotel is right around the corner to your left on Marnixstraat, a 2 minute walk. Upon arrival, "Jackie" was there to welcome us and offer helpful hints for attractions and events. We received our room-key for a 20 Euro deposit and up the steps we went. (Steps are steep. Not recommended for guests with walking disabilities. No elevator.) We only had our carry-on-luggage so the steps were no problem for us. Room 11 had a nice view of the Theater, large closet, 2 twin-beds side by side, a desk and a small bathroom (only shower). There is also a safe in the closet. The beds were very comfy and the room and bathroom were clean. Even though the room was street-side, it was quiet. A free breakfast is included in the room-price, however we only had the coffee. I liked that the front-door was locked at all times. You could ring the bell or use your entry-chip to unlock. Restaurants, Shops, Bars and Entertainment just around the corner in walking distance. Museums very close. Good price for such a great location. We would stay here again. Thank you, Hotel La Boheme!

Room Tip: Room 11 has 2 twin beds side by side. High enough to cancel out the street-noise.

nice, clean, friendly and extremely helpful staff. pancakes at 4 pm are not be missed especially if you got the munchies. plenty of English channels to watch on the TV while you are relaxing in the room. Tea and coffee facilities in the room would of been a nice addition also a snack machine on the higher floors would have been good too. the stairs are really steep so if you are old or are staying with young children avoid the upper floors.

free breakfast are basic but really tasty and all organic local produce ;-) would definitely recommend

Room Tip: stairs are a nightmare though so travel light!!
