Stayed in a nice room directly opposite the sex palace and could hear the crowd going crazy at some of the performance. Had a great view of canal and unfortunately a public toilet as well! Overall nice

I stayed with 2 other friends and the staff were nice people, breakfast was nice and simple and it was a very affordable place. Stayed for 2 nights and had a ensuite bathroom and free WiFi.

The stairs are probably the only negative thing for me. Steep and tiring after a long day of walking but worth it when you get to the soft bed in your room.

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.

I came here for a hotelroom. There was however one wasbasin with a mirror in the room of that hotel. It was a good location in the city. I found the breakfast o.k. and the staff was very friendly and kind.

Room Tip: People could better wear eardops in their ears. It could be noisy sometimes because it is a city.

I've now stayed here several times and its a friendly easy going hotel, the rooms aren't 5* but they are clean and comfortable and the location is brilliant, whats also brilliant is the staff and the 24 hour bar, Stefan and Niels were friendly and tried to answer any questions. Also the wet shower rooms are very good and clean.

Probably wouldn't recommend this for a quiet weekend away but if you want a central location go for it!
