We booked the Center Hotel on the internet and were swayed by picture of a friendly reception area. When we arrived at the hotel nothing could be further from the truth. The hotel was up steep stairs and as one of our party was disabled this hotel was not ideal. There was no mention of this on the internet. When we got to the reception the hotel was dirty the carpets threadbare and the smell well I couldn't describe it. We decided that we could not stay there and although we got our money back on one room they would not re imburse the credit card bookings. They did say they would credit for one night but as yet we have not received that. The room allocated for breakfast had no tables or chairs just a small work top with stools. The floor was covered in dirty linen and the dishes were dirty.
We eventually booked into another hotel called the Cordial and what a difference. This hotel was clean and the management were very friendly and made our first visit to Amsterdam worthwhile. I can't thank them enough and I will recommend this hotel to anybody who is looking for a clean comfortable hotel in the middle of Amsterdam close to all the amenities. At 78Euros a night B&B it is good value for money and the staff are brilliant.
Please be aware if you are thinking of booking the Center Hotel as hotel is not a word I would like to use.
