“Awful place to stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with one other person before, quite simply we had a tiny room which is what you expect from Amsterdam, but the bed sheets were dirty and the room and whole building smelled like cats urine, the window into our room didn't lock so we had to baracade it shut to stop the mice and rats comin in, far better places to stay

Staff were great ,location spot on ,but the place itself is a mess ....you can't pollish a you know what...paid 60 odd quid a night for a twin with a bin and then the city tax on arrival No breakfast and a coffee machine in reception thank goodness the coffee shop 420 was 30 second walk after a smoke of haze I forgot all about the hotel and had a jolly good weekend

Hotel is in a great location if you want the busy / vibrant part of Amsterdam, about a 2 minute walk from Central Station.

As soon as we got to the hotel however, we were told that there was a 30 euro tax to be paid, we had no other option but to pay the money. We finally made it to our room (after walking up some seriously steep stairs), we were greeted to a tiny room with bunk beds, which can only be described as a prison cell. Bedding looked unclean, graffiti on the beds and generally poorly maintained. Bath had no plug, so could only have a shower. A positive was that we got fresh towels every day and the maid cleaned the room (to a certain extent) daily. I had no issue with noise from the street, as we were at the back of the hotel - instead we had poor views and smells coming from the alley behind. Next time I visit Amsterdam I would not go back to the hotel.

On our last day we visited the restaurant downstairs and the food was quite good and quite reasonable (compared to other places nearby).

This hotel is a good one for those visitting Amterdam. It is a the centre and very conviniently connected to the transportation system i.e tram, train and busses. The only disadvantage is that it is not recommended for senior citizens since the stairs are too steep. No elevator provided.

Stayed in this hotel wi two friends we were at the top corner of the hotel with a good view of the street. Outside the hotel is non stop all day all night if u are a light sleeper dont stay here. Restaurant down stairs is lovely. Rooms were very small wasnt alot of room for 3 people when u opened the door u walked into the first bed. We had are own shower again not very big stair felt more like ladders. Rooms were clean fresh towels everyday staff were friendly. You get what you pay for at the end of the day
