Aston City Hotel
Ranked #347 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The staff were efficient and helpful, but for the price paid the building was a little bit worse for wear than I was expecting (this can probably be forgiven as it was between Christmas and New Year). Contrary to some claims online all the rooms are non smoking, and the wifi is actually limited to the hotel lobby (our room was in the separate building so no chance). A bit of a killer staircase, as are common throughout Amsterdam - luckily we were travelling light. The room itself was reasonably clean, the window a bit dodgy and the TV pretty small but it did get Comedy Central. Slept reasonably, although there was a waste pipe right next to my head and every time a toilet above was flushed you could clearly hear it on it's way down. On the first night a fire alarm went off but was silenced when we were halfway down the stairs.

If you're looking for a reasonable low budget room and don't require much else at all then this is perfect. The location is great, felt very safe, with coffee shops nearby and lots more.

Reviewed January 5, 2013

I reserved a room on my card for me and a friend and once we arrived I was told that we would have to share a bed due to the double rooms running out. Prior to even speaking to the receptionist we had to wait extremely long due to amount of people in reception. I wont go into to much detail but we ended up going to another hotel and paying more.

It is a lot like a hostel not an hotel.

away from city center. very small rooms (you can hardly stretch your arms at two sides). bathroom in the room. nice people working. had a silent and nice sleep. smoking not allowed. it was expensive for such a small place, however this may be partially forgiven, because it was around new year's eve.

Although the room was small but cozy and warm. One of the beds was slightly broken. Friendly service. Reception and our room was not in the same building. Only a 100 meters away, though. Clean towels, shampoo, and soap available in the bathroom. Continental breakfast available for 3 euros per person.
