Nieuw Slotania Hotel
Ranked #340 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Our travel agent booked us in referring to it as a budget hotel. Unless you are 20 something, pack backing and really want to cut costs, check out other options.

This is older hotel and more of a hostel with a few rooms that have been fixed up a little. There was no a/c and the heat was stifling and we had to leave the windows open, finally resorting to wet towels to try and cool off. It is extremely noisy. The sidewalk café below our window did not close until about 2 am and the street noise kept on until 4 am. Our hallway door was rattled all night by people too drunk to find their own room. Ear plugs don't help. There are phones in the room but can't be used to call out.

There are some pluses, free Wi-Fi, the sheets, towels and bathroom were clean, combination safe in room, the European breakfast buffet was ample and and the staff that we dealt with helpful with information, maps or making calls. The airport shuttle bus does go there, there is a grocery store across the street and the tram on the corner runs regularly to the city core although it is a 25 min. ride.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs! No air con. so had to leave window open, extremely noisy.

This hotel was the last 2 nights of our contiki. There appeared to be 2 other contiki groups staying here as well. My review may be slightly skewed due to the horrible experiences of other places we encountered over our 2 weeks, none the less you cannot deny that they had their rooms kept spotless, modern bathrooms (however our sink was hanging on by 1 screw) and comfortable beds.

I am unsure how the public transport was but by cab it was not too costly, averaged about 20 euro to get back to the hotel from anywhere we were really.

The immediate area had supermarkets, fast food, postal services and restaraunts which was all convenient. The bar within the hotel was decently priced and the food served for breakfast and dinner was of great quality.

I would stay here again if I return to Amsterdam!

Do not go to this hotel unless you will be drunk the entire time of your stay! It is extremely unclean, regardless of the price the linen and surfaces should be clean this is simply not good enough anymore. The staff are extremely rude and unhelpful and have no idea about customer service. The breakfast staff are vile also and the place is dirty. Do not stay here. The gentlemen who came to fix our television was very nice though. You should buck up your standards could be better. Free wifi which is very good.

Nothing special, just a low budget, average hotel placed outskirts. For its prices, is was not so bad. I didn't expect daily cleaning, but they did so. Breakfast was also good, but I'm not choosy here. Service was friendly and helpful. If your budget is far limited, I would recommend them. However, if you're able to spend few more bucks (not so much actually) I will definitely advice to get something near the city center. For me, the main disadvantage was to spend at least 35 minutes in a tram or bus to get to the city and another 35 minutes for going back.

We stayed in June 2014 for 6 days. I was impressed by the size of the room and modern bathroom but there was only one window in the room that didn't vent the room very well. This wasn't very nice when housekeeping would leave an unpleasant body odour smell in our room everyday and also down the hallway.

The hotel itself is not completely terrible, it's pretty standard for the price. Our room was impossible to find, as was another two rooms in our group. It took us upwards of 30 minutes to locate it. The room was average in size and it was clean enough. Breakfast was pretty subpar.
