“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

The location was good hotel is on the Main Street close the few attractions Amsterdam has. Room was clean. Breakfast was basic. It was difficult getting our luggage up the steep steps. Room was a good size and clean.

Dear Lindsay,

Thank you for your kind review. Our hotel is situated in the heart of Amsterdam. The hotel is situated in a 400 year old building. This is the charm of our hotel. Therefore the entrance is of a typical building in Amsterdam, with the typical stairs.

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back at our hotel.

With kind regards,
The management of Hotel Ajax

Location is perfect. Between Dam and Rembrandt, right in the center. Rooms are ok, quite small and slightly worn out but comfy.

A bit noisy-they were drilling in the canal. No desk, so to work I had to sit on bed and it was weary... but if you just want a bed to crash and some food to get you started, it's more than enough!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

As you noticed our hotel is in the middle of the city centre. As Amsterdam is a very busy city and because of our central location, outside noises unfortunately cannot be eliminated completely.

Because we are a 2 star hotel we indeed offer basic facilities and we do our very best to offer all our guests a nice stay at our hotel.

With kind regards,
The management of Hotel Ajax

We stayed for a long weekend and to be honest it was fine. The stairs are a killer but I didn't mind the work out. The staff are pretty friendly and helpful. View we had from our room 316 was really lovely. The location was brilliant. Can hear a lot at night time but you expect that anyway. Rooms got a bit cold at night and not every double room is guaranteed a double bed. Fine if your looking for something Cheap and cheerful.

Me, my sister and her boyfriend stayed in Hotel Ajax 2 nights. The service was very good, staff was very friendly. The reception desk is of course open 24 hours. The room was quite expensive, but we booked the room the day we arrived and that was really busy weekend in Amsterdam. Hotel is placed in the city center so it is very close to pubs, restaurants.
I found only 2 disadvantages.
1) Rooms are really small and cramped.
2) To log in the Internet you have to do it trough the facebook. Then it asks you to agree with the facebook conditions.

Anyway I reccomend that Hotel to people who wants only sleep there and visit the city.

The place is dirty. The first room had two mice running about. The view from the window was a brick wall. We complained as they put us in a room at the front off the hotel, it was slightly better. My opinion the place needs shut down.

positive points: location: central; and personnel: kind
for the rest I found it extremely expensive and disastrously neglected: even the brush in the bathroom broke and fell inside the WC!! and I was unable to unlock the window which remained open during the night. the receptionist unlocked it the following morning
