“A good hotel”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We stayed in Aalborg hotel for three nights. It is placed in a quiet neighbourhood near the center of Amsterdam, which is about 20 minutes walk from there. Our room was a small one, in a modern desighn as it has some kind of graffiti on its walls and placed in the third floor. It was clean enough and had a cosy atmosphere. Water was always hot, and the staff provided us with clean towels every day. On the ground floor is the breakfast room which is simply beautiful. The bar has great prices for having a coffee or a drink there (1€ for coffee and 4€ for a glass of scotch). There is a wi fi connection allthough we had a problem with that in the second day.
Overall, is a great option for travellers who want to stay far from the noisy center and i believe that it is a value for money.

We stayed at the Aalborg for two nights. It was easy to find from the Central Station, being on a couple tram routes. It's located in a quieter part of Amsterdam - De Pijp, which is near the Museum Quarter and a 10 minute tram ride ( 2.80e) from the major tourist areas of Amsterdam.

The Aalborg is open 24 hours and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room, whilst a bit on the small side, was clean, tidy and the bed was exceedingly comfy! The central heating definately earned it's keep in the unseasonable weather and the shower was warm, but flooded the bathroom unless you were careful. A minor grumble was the lack of a kettle, but the 24hr bar sold decent coffee for 1e a cup. There was a functioning TV with a good spread of English speaking channels on it, but we didn't come to watch it!

Another boon was having to hand your key over each time you checked out- so there was no worry about losing it! We were woken once by noisy fellow guests, but the hotel is very small, so this was not unexpected.

We got a reasonable deal on our room and not having to share a bathroom was a bonus, though do be aware that Amsterdam is a very expensive city to visit- this was my only real gripe about my time in the Netherlands.

Room Tip: Rooms for 4 people are much larger.

This is a great hotel for those looking to visit Amsterdam without being right in the middle of it. The hotel is situated on the edge of a very nice park in a nice part of town, with a tram stop nearby that takes you to dam square and central station in 5-10 minutes. The heiniken brewery is a 10 minute walk.

The hotel has a hostel feel about it, with relaxed and friendly staff and a fun atmosphere. The hotel can be a little noisy (noise of people coming and going) but it is excellent value for money.

I would definitely recommend and if we return to Amsterdam we will be staying here again!

Spent three nights at the Aalborg hotel and loved it. The staff was very cool and helpful with recommending restaurants/bars, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect because it's close enough to the city center but far enough removed that the streets are peaceful at night and the vibe is less touristy. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
