“Sticky walls”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

OMG! What a state our room (number 10) was in! There was stuff splattered all over the walls and there was no heating as the boiler wasn't working.
When I told the girl on reception, who was helpful to be fair, she went to check the heating and found that 2 other rooms weren't working either. They did redeem themselves a little by moving us out of our nasty quadruple room to an 8 share room across the street from the hotel, which wasn't too bad at all. If it wasn't for the staff who were quite nice, I would have only given this a 1.

It's cheap, clean, 5 min walking from Dam Square and in the middle of the "fun area" of the city, perfect if you are with friends visiting the city and enjoying nightlife etc...
The rooms are a little small, but comfortables anyway. Nice staff!

We didn´t even consider staying, once we saw the room we were given. It looked more like a bedbugged area, which had been used for storage. very small, very narrow, 2 steel beds from WW2, getting to the room area (no2), by some very narrow stairs, which were covered with carpets from before WW2. It smelled og Urin, and looked as if the painter hadn´t been there after 1950.

NOT TO BE RECOMMENDED AT ALL, AT ANY PRICE.
This ... "thing" called Hotel should not be at Hotels.com

Room Tip: Don´t use this dump "hotel"...stay in your car, you´ll be better of.

stayed here over the weekend, room was not that great but you get what you pay for.. very very good location and close to everything you need. staff were very friendly and accomodating which makes up for the room. its about the experience not just the room.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very good location just in the heart of Amsterdam. Train station, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, red light.. everything is just around the corner.
Rooms were small and it smelled as if guests had been smoking inside since the 16th century. Bathroom with a shower was down the hall. The bar/restaurant downstairs was shut during the night so the rooms were quiet. If you want to live in the center then I guess you have to deal with the tiny rooms but I still believe it was a bit overpriced when it comes to other European cities.
Even though the travel websites say you can pay with a credit card then actually you cannot.
If you are not too picky and do care about location, then for a reasonable price it is worth staying at Old Quarter.
