Reviewed July 19, 2013

The positives: Location was good, tram stop right outside direct into city centre, nice places to eat and walk about nearby. Not far from the botanical gardens, market, windmill not far away either. Reception staff were friendly for the brief time when we checked in.

However the cleanliness wasn't really up to scratch. Quite aware it was a cheap hotel, only a bed for the night and a shower, wasn't expecting it to be the Ritz but basic hygiene should apply wherever you are: stained pillows, extra bedding stained, hair in the bathroom when we walked in on the first day, hair under bed sheets. Shower drainage a bit dodgy. No air conditioning, If there wasn't a fan in the room we would have melted during the night.

A bit noisy at night but even a hotel cant control the traffic and peoples on the streets below. But because of the heat in the room the we had to keep the windows open most of the night.

Probably would not stay in this hotel again but would certainly stay in the area, once you get to grips with the trams its good.

Room Tip: Attic rooms are a fair climb up some pretty steep stairs

You get what you pay for, right? We stayed in an attic room. And thankfully had light luggage. We got there early and owner let us stow our luggage for the few hrs we needed before Checking in. There was no a/c in room so it was hot up there! I couldn't keep windows open due to the noise. (Light sleeper). We did find a fan. Shower backed up, filled w water. We had to ask for soap but owner quickly came up to fix that. Thankfully I did not come across bed bugs! I only stayed here 1 night. I probably would not stAy again.

Room Tip: Don't do the attic unless Its winter! ( it's hot w no a/c!)

Look it's not the Hyatt, so don't book this hotel if you are looking for that, if you want something economical, maybe you're driving into Amsterdam and you have a family, then consider this. Everything worked, the place is old and tired, but we wanted the location and didn't want to spend too much so you have to make sacrifices. Parked car securely 1klm away at parking owner has which was great. If you have a large car forget it as the driveway down is very tight and the bottom corner is sharp. I ad a Renault scenic and we just squeezed in. Hotel is secure with a key required to open entry door into hotel, stairs are steep, but we got one room slept 5 of us, everything worked and we didn't spend a great deal, so we are happy.

The title sums it up.

Bed bugs - check
Stained sheets - check
Filthy bathroom - check
Terrible service - check

The list could go on and on and on.

The Hotel was in a handy location, but that's where the positives ended.

I wouldn't even wish an attic room on my worst enemy. 12 months on and I still have the bed bug scars.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days.
The reception personnel was very kind and helpful.
The room we received is a one bedroom for our family of five.
The room was very clean.
Tram is a step from the Hotel and few stations from the center.

Cons: Hard stairs to climb.

Restaurants near by:
Coffee to walk - great place for breakfast - other side of the street (Plantage Middenlaan 44-HS)
2 good Pizza places - cheap prices
1 Hamburger place - expensive

Room Tip: Try to receive a room in the reception's floor. Otherwise you need to climb up the stairs again...

well this hotel is not plush but suits the travelling down to the ground, warm rooms clean linen lovely staff and very private. my son and partner and I stayed there and it was so well situated. although we were in the attic rooms it was cosy and had to laugh everytime we went up and down to our rooms. there is no breakfast but the times we arrived and left if there had been breakfast we would have missed both. there are 2 lovely cafes for eating either side of the hotel door. the trams stop right there too. the little kebab shop a few doors down from the hotel was excellent. the zoo was opp our hotel. only disappointing thing was ann franks house lots of stairs and empty rooms. we loved our trip. the hotel does a transfer at the airport and they book it back for u when u pick a pick up time with reception. there is also a hot drinks machine which is free and sweets in baskets. lovely trip.

Room Tip: room 16 is lovely I had a peek in there.

First time to the city so didnt know what to expected but the locatio turned out to be perfect - close enough to the centre to pop in and out, but far enough out its not all bright lights and loud noise :) nice neighbourhood and had lovely walk round the area.
Hotel itsself was lovely, it must of been quiet at the time as our room was upgraded and we had a massive room that would easy sleep 4 for the 2 of us. lovely big windows with a table to sit and watch the world go by
really friendly staff and helpful when ever we needed
