“good looking lobby the rooms not so”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

if you plan to organize stuff in the room there is no closet,no place to put anything except on the table and couple of drawers. in the shower only a sink and a toilet, except that the room is pretty good and the bed comfy. one problem that there were no trash can in our room, and when we asked the reception they gave us plastic bag and never gave a trash can eventually. also one small problem that they told me by phone that there is a kitchen that we will be able to use but at the reception the girls said its only for students that live there and not for tourists. besides that the location is pretty good the hotel is clean and lobby very beautiful. besides lack of kitchen pretty good value for the money.

Room Tip: choose room on upper floors cause the down floorse face to bus station.

Dear Artium B,

Thanks a lot for sharing your feedback on Tripadvisor. Though it has been some time since you wrote your review, I think it is still important for us to answer you. You took the time to write this review, we should take the time to answer it! I am glad you found The Student Hotel to be a hotel with good value, a handy location and beautiful common areas. We put a lot of effort into trying to provide good service for an affordable rate, and it’s always nice to see our guests enjoying their time with us.

Regarding a couple of points you mentioned about your room, a lot of improvements have been made since your visit. We have now made clear in all our communications that the shared kitchens are reserved for long-term residents of The Student Hotel. However, our onsite restaurant/bar provides various dishes at affordable prices, and is a good option for guests on budget!

Thanks again for your feedback. We would be very happy to welcome you back for another stay one day.
All the best,

Carter Jones

I recently stayed at the student hotel in Amsterdam, on business. The rooms are basic, but clean, the bar is good, the staff friendly and efficient. There is a fantastic common area, with great facilities. Well worth a visit!
