“Not what was expected”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

After reading numerous reviews about this hotel we gave it a try, considring the price and location in Amsterdam that was a good offer. However the bed wasnt double - twin one, no one told us they have changed this option. As the room was just behind the entrance - we heard noise coming from upstairs when guests were climbing the stairs. The TV option requires a deposit 10eur, no air conditioning, old furniture and wifi was veeery bad... overall we gave 2 stars as we had experience in such quality hotels and it was much more pleasant.

This was the first hotel as we started our Europe trip, and we were certainly not disappointed. The location, especially, is perfect. It is across the river from the Centraal, and a 5 minutes walk from the docks. It is amazing how the atmosphere becomes so calm and peaceful just 5 minutes away from the ever-busy Dam Street. From the Centraal station, you need to take a 5-minutes ride in a free ferry across to the IJPlein and a 5-minutes walk from there.

The location was nice, with a park in the opposite. There were a couple of eateries and bakeries, and a supermarket around for anything you might need. 10 minutes away from the hotel is a large supermarket. The manager was a cheerful person, and was very helpful with the questions we had.

The room was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom had a nice shower. It was definitely worth the price we paid. Free wifi was a bonus. The only thing to remember is, things close down pretty early in this side of the river, and you may not get anything to eat after 10pm.

Nice clean hotel, basic but everything you need for a short stay. Fridge in room stocked with a few drinks and everything spotless if a little dated. Very good location, five minute walk to free ferry just behind Central Station, perfect away from the busy areas. Keep in mind slightly longer walk if returning to hotel after midnight, but still not to far, maybe 15min walk.

Only complaint was I had requested a double room but we had twin beds.

Overall would stay again.

The manager is very nice and helpful. The room, which I have rented, had a bathroom and clean. The only problem is the lack of breakfast in the hotel.
There is a bakery, a small supermarket, and a Turkish restaurant near the hotel, in the same street. Late at nights of the weekend, a lot noise from some people on the street was heard.
The path to the Amsterdam Centraal main station takes about 15 min, including a walk to the IJplein station and then taking the (cost-free) IJplein ferry.
The area, in general, is calm.

Friendly staff, clean quiet rooms and easy access to the free city ferry made this a good value place to stay.
Our only disappointment was that we had to park our car about half a kilometre away in a residential area.

Room Tip: Smokers should ask for a room with a balcony.

A quiet hotel across the river from the bustle of the city. A free ferry is only a 5 minute walk away to take you across the river. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful with directions etc.
Rooms are of a 2 star standard, clean but could do with an update. Beware of the steep stairs (no lift). We paid for breakfast one morning which was the most bizarre experience and food (you have to go to the Turkish restaurant on the corner).
Overall a good hotel, good location and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Twin rooms bigger then double, some have balconies Avoid paying for breakfast...

Hotel Isis is good value clean quiet and away from the bustle of Centraal in Amsterdam's Turkish district. Good food shops - bread Turkish pizza fresh fruit. Post office over road good supermarket 200 metres away. Bed is comfortable and I can open window. Recommend.
