Perfect location, only 5 minutes walk from central station, the staff is verry friendly, the breakfast is good, but the room was awful. It was not verry clean and the tv didn't work. I wouldn't recommend it!

A fantastic greeting awaited us as we arrived -the 'craaazy Dutch' stereotype in full effect here. The room itself was nothing special but for three guys sharing and on a budget, it had everything we needed.
Sure, the view wasn't amazing, the decor was minimal and the walls weren't exactly soundproof but it was clean, the water was hot, the sheets were fresh and the heating worked. Fresh towels were provided daily and we never felt there was anything to complain about.
The breakfast was fine-a full English or continental option available and great staff (all of whom speak perfect English) were always on hand.
Live music was provided over the weekend we stayed there and each time we returned back to the hotel, the bar area, with its laid-back, friendly feel always seemed to be busy but not overcrowded.
The location is in the Red Light District but don't get the wrong impression, you'll find no one touting for business outside the front door. Most of the Red Light District is simply full of bars and restaurants and coffee shops, the occasional shop offering novelty sex toys and an adult cinema is about as spicy as it gets on the street where the hotel is situated. However, for those wanting to experience the open nature of this adult playground, you're just a couple of streets away. This is also a great location for a quick stay due to it being just a five minute walk from the train station.
Would i return? If i was either on a budget or in the company of just blokes who perhaps aren't too bothered by frills, then yes -absolutely! Perhaps if returning to the city for a romantic break, I might look for something a little more 'boutique' and pay for the extra star rating.
Hotel Old Quarter has a playful and vibrant energy to it. It knows who it is marketing towards and doesn't attempt to hide the fact. I liked this honesty and would certainly recommend it.
