I stayed at the Hotel Impala from 2 nights Fri 28th and Sat 29th March with two friends all of us female.
The only good point about this hotel is that the bed covers were clean.
We stayed in a quad room on the top floor. Yes the stairs are pretty steep but that is standard in Amsterdam.
Apart from that everything else was pretty filthy. The walls had stuff splashed all over them, red stains on the skirtin boards, carpets were filthy. The bathroom was reasonably clean but with a shower worse than a tap and a bin that was not emptied after the last people that stayed there. The main light in the room didn't work and there was only one mirror and that was in the bathroom so you couldnt all get ready at the same time.
Most of the rooms I would say are smoking rooms and the hotel constantly smelled of smoke the gaps under our door really meant you felt like someone in your room was smoking.
The breakfast room looked "ok" but needless to say my friends and I really did not want to eat there.
The location is fine lots of bars and restaurants nearby and easily walkable to Centraal Station and Dam Sqaure within about 15-20 minutes. Which is a nice walk through lots of shops etc
I would not recommend this hotel unless you really don't care where you stay. We paid 220 Euro for two nights for 3 people.
I would have preferred to have spent just that lilttle bit more and stayed somewhere else.
