...but we didn't. And we didn't end up staying anyway because they lost our reservation. It being Queen's Day, they were booked. We'd walked from Centraal Station with our luggage to the address of the hotel, which had a note on the door directing us to check-in at another hotel nearby. So we walked there, where the receptionist told us she had no record of our reservation (I showed her our confirmation email), and agreed to book us at another hotel. We didn't want to make a fuss, but she wouldn't, pay for a taxi to the hotel 15 minutes away. So we left, but not before using the toilet, which was obviously a shared bathroom for the rooms -- it was stinky and dirty. We ended up being GLAD we didn't stay after all, as our replacement hotel (Atlas Hotel by Vondelpark) was excellent.

The Townhouse is a mere 10 m from the tram stop. I checked in at the ITC right across the street. My room was ready early which was a bonus. The stairs, all though steep as usual, were very manageable. I was in a private single room #25 on the 1st floor. The hotel is "smoker friendly" just make sure you open the window! I The hotel is within 15 minutes of the Leidsplein, Waterloopein and the Rembrandtplein. Give the Townhouse a try and hopefully you'll be as happy as I was!

First of all, you need to check in at the ITC hotel across the road, which is cool, since i already knew that. When we got in to the town house the stairs are really steep, which they would be in Amsterdam, because all housing are created like that. when we got in to our room, the most DISGUSTING thing was that our sheets were slept in!!!!!!! not even changed.As soon as i complained they changed the sheets, which should of been done in the first place. The townhouse is on the outside of the centre, which it is 15mins walk from Rembrantplein and the Red light district is about 25mins walk. There is a trams available just outside the hotel which run every 15mins.Overall it is great for younger people, as i went with my boyfriend, it was just OK for us to get on with it. The hotel staff miss communicate a lot, but they are overall friendly, happy to help, but they are very short staff, so you may wait for help for a bit of a long time.

Look, this place certainly aint the Ritz and if you have the budget, you might want to think about going elsewhere. But really, what do you need in Amsterdam other than a bed and clean toilet and shower? The room I stayed in was the small budget room, which at 50 euros a night during school hols, you can't complain too much about. yes it was small but it had two bunk beds, so in fact you could get the price down to 25 euros each if there were two of you - bargain! clean toilet and shower although you had to go up another floor to get to the shower and damn the steps are steep!! be careful!! reception staff are really friendly and helpful, and its in a nice location close to all the museums and a short tram ride to Dam square (no. 4 tram) and the red light district. I walked most places as the hotel is not too far from anything.
