“Worst hotel ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I was totally disappointed by this hotel. The 3 stars are not deserved. Although not particularly cheap, the room was tiny, with barely enough room to move around the bed. The bathroom sliding door was broken and couldn't be closed completely. Also the shower box doors were broken and difficult to move. The bed sheets were not clean (I found a hair on my first night there).

While the space was extremely small, it was very clean and the beds were especially comfortable. It gets very hot in the rooms in summer with no AC but the fans help. Try not to get a room on 4th floor.

For a quick stay in Amsterdam it is perfect; the location is good, there is no noise, the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly; the rooms are a bit over-priced, but still ok for Amsterdam;
Downturn, no parking place

Our room was fairly compact, but the bed was very comfy, the bath was obscure and with the shower above it was a challenge to stand in!
Breakfast was good, staff helpful and friendly. The garden is really lovely.
The hotel, was in a brilliant location, a distance from the night life but the tram stops almost outside! The trams are amazing!
We had a brilliant few days.
I'd really recommend the Aalborg as a base, hotel seems expensive but in comparison to the rest of Amsterdam seems reasonable

The room we were in was very small with the bed up against the wall so one person had to climb over other person to get out of bed. The room was so small we couldn't unpack our bags. Also beware they charge 4% to use a credit card. The bathroom was very small and had not been thought out.

The breakfast was average and the staff were not that interested in the guests.
