“Weekend get away”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This was a great place to stay on the cheap for a weekend away with the family of five! Our room was clean and very simple. I would stay here again!
The location made it possible to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

This hotel is not the Ritz, it's basic, with very few extras. thats it for negatives.

I had a large room which was clean, I could smoke in my room, which is a benefit to me but may put some people off and the location is great, right by the zoo lots of retsurants, coffee shops and bars around.

The area is quiet but very close to everything. The staff where very helpful when asked for anything and where always friendly. I don't know why people moan about the stairs, they are narrow but being in Amsterdam so are most, look at the houses they are mostly narrow. Overall me and my girlfriend enjoed our stay and will return next time we are in Amsterdam.

We stayed here in June and having stayed in a few Amsterdam hotels chose to stay here again. We had room 23 this time having had the attic room before. Both stays have been pleasant and trouble free. We found the rooms clean enough and the service to be very friendly and helpful. I think you would struggle in amsterdam to find anything better in this price range. The stairs are narrow but not the worst and thats amsterdam stairs everywhere. Handy for transport although we walked everywhere and nothings that far away. Would definately recommend a visit to Het Ballonje only 400m away for some quality weed altho the older female bud tender is more friendly than the long haired guy. Always a good selection in here.

We stayed here for 3 nights. to say this is a hotel is stretching it, it is a house with rooms. no facilities or brekfast available, requested extra pillows and are still waiting! . Stairs are very steep, and narrow, we stayed in the attic room (50 steps @ 70 degree angle) which was tiny and has never seen a vacuum cleaner and bathroom rarely been cleaned. The check in staff were great but they must. be used to the disappointed faces when guests get to check-in. This "hotel" says it was completely refurbished in 2010, I think they should ask for their money back as they were ripped off!

Great location (if you don't mind the mixed blessing of the trams), close to the old zoo, and a short ride into town.
If you can manage the steep stairs, this is a great value hotel, nice and informal.

This hotel is tired, very tired. Bedside lights didn't work, fridge just about worked, carpet was threadbare. BUT they did have a family room for five, which seem to be in short supply in Amsterdam. Shower was a wet room, so floor gets wet, which means socks get wet and shoes leave dirt on floor. Not unusual, but frustrating -- especially when five people are sharing the loo. Location makes it difficult to walk into the centre: you can do it but it's quite a hike (hotel is right next to the zoo). Streetcars are handy and frequent enough. Staff are friendly, though they seem to smoke constantly. I'd try to find a different hotel next time, but I'd settle for this if I had to -- just to get the five-bedded room.

This was my second time at the hotel. I chose it because it's a nice and unformal hotel in which you can smoke inside. I still like the hotel, even though I didn't like the room. It was right next to a tram line, so there was a lot of noise in the mornings. There was also a hole in the closet wall and I had to hold the shower myself. But the room was big and there are fridges in every room, which is nice. Nice staff.
