Hotel Max is cheap and cheerful! It is just a place to sleep whilst staying in this awesome city. It is not located right in the center of AMS but this is actually a good thing!
It is out of the way of the noise at night, it is in a nice quiet part of town, and is a hidden gem. Firstly there is a Lidl mini mart right over the road - which saved us lots of money on food! We lived on Croissants, cheese and ham for a while haha!
The Lidl has a good fresh bakery, cheap fruit juice, and even a coffee machine. Also it is not overpriced like shops in the city center, and you see many local people shopping there. The proximity to Lidl makes Hotel Max a great place for those on a budget like we was!
Also, just around the corner there is this AMAZING market! This again is not in the hustle of the city center, and the stalls sell loads of weird and wonderful stuff, as well as necessities. Definitely visit this market, as it is a real splice of Amsterdam without being a cliche tourist spot.
Also, just over the road from Max is a lovely little coffee shop, which obviously sells recreational Cannabis. It is fairly relaxed as again it is out of the way of the center. Pretty sure there is a Takeaway shop there too.
Max is situated in a place where it takes 20mins or so to walk into the center, we did a lot of walking around AMS, and too and from the Hotel. However, we also headed the opposite way from the center one day, and found some awesome pubs and clubs heading towards the suburbs.
Listen, the Hotel is not a 5 star Hotel. The place is great to sleep and rest up before heading out again. It has its rough edges, but it does what it is supposed to. The shower works, and the beds were clean. We often missed breakfast anyway, but they had no problem with us returning back in the early hours (quietly of course).
What do people expect? This place is a great base of operations for 'missioning' all over this great city!
Shower, Bed, TV, Roof, Door -That is all i need!
