“A bad experience”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The room was the smalles I ever have stayed in----around 6 sqare meters--- the breakfest was extremely bad and no light in the bathroom. The location was excellent, only it was impossible to sleep continously due to chuch bells ringing every hour---day and and night.

Great location, value for money. Staff is friendly. Rooms are average and was not having attached washroom. Had to use common washrooms however it was pretty clean.
Overall its located in the centre of the city so one can go for it if group of more than 4 is there.

This hotel suited our needs as a group of 8 the 4 bed rooms were perfect to keep cost down.
hotel is in a central location and easy to find just behind dam square , the rooms are basic but for the price we paid we were happy.

Hotel was not very clean! They double booked our room so we ended up in a small room with a double bed as well as another single in it.. Washroom was scungy and had no toilet.. Just shower/sink. Shared toilet on floor.

Good location! Close to Anne frank house, canal tours, red light district etc. wouldn't stay here again.

The hotel is conveniently located near the train station so you can walk or take a tram to your hotel.

The hotel has steep stairs on the way up but most hotels will be like this. Me and my girlfriend were Lucky and got upgraded to larger room as the hotel made a booking error. The room is very cold and damp and not clean at all. Luckily there is a shower and sink in the room but the shared bathroom makes this hotel one to stay away from. The morning breakfast is just bread and coffee which is better than nothing.

I would recommend bring your own sheets and an extra pillow case if you have booked this hotel already.

I will not return to this hotel.
