Lets be clear here. If you are looking for a hotel to take your wife for a romantic weekend away, this is probably not the hotel for you. If you like luxury, lifts to take your bags up to the room, a concierge service, this is NOT the hotel for you.
However if you are looking for cheap, clean accommodation in the middle of the Red Light district give the Hotel Torenzicht some serious consideration.
The Good Stuff
Location is excellent, a ten minute walk from Amsterdam Central Train Station.
Rooms are basic but clean and tidy, noise levels are pretty good even though the streets are still busy at 3.00am
Staff were all helpful
Bar is open 24 hours and priced about the same as the other bars in the area
There are shared toilets and showers but I never had to queue to use one and neither did any of the other guys in our party.
The OK stuff
The stairs are a little steep and certainly if you were a little infirm it might be an issue but they are not the worst I have ever been up
Breakfast was included, think cheese, meat and bread with unlimited tea, coffee and orange juice. Not amazing but it was FREE!
The Bad Stuff
Nothing that wouldn't have been expected for the price I paid. Its a little dated in places although they were installing new toilets downstairs.More
