We have booked a room with twin bed but when we arrived we just find 3 separated ones - uncomfortable for a couple-

The room wasn't really clean, I found a sticky candy under our bed

There were no place to let our stuff, no storange

It wasn't convenient to get out of the room at night when we wanted to go to the restroom.

We did not know that we had to pay a 15 euros extra at our arrival.

Fortunately, the hotel has a good location, closed to the most famous museums and the vondelpark. It's also a good thing that the breakfast is included in the reservation

I had a 4-bed room in Hotel Princess. It was a great experience with Karl and another Latin friend. The services were clean and comfort. each room has some small windows which opens into the street and had nice atmosphere. Toilet and showers were equipped and comfort. the reception and cafe are amazing and don't forget the Gouda cheese for breakfast...

Room Tip: don't miss the breakfast ;)

We caused some trouble for the staff, turning up hours early for check in and messing up our hotel booking and return tickets. They helped us out a lot. Rooms were really dirty and cold though. Good internet and facilities, shared shower and toilet were really clean which was a surprise after seeing our room. Downstairs was nice and clean, good dining room with comfortable chairs, breakfast was not so great; stale toast and cheap jam. I would suggest buying some cereal or pop tarts from one of the local shops. Great location, walking distance from everything, I would suggest the nearby Dolphin coffee shop as a good point to end your evenings and recommend the local brightly coloured yellow mushroom shop (can't miss it, there's pictures of Super Mario mushrooms everywhere). Over all a good stay and nice staff but some heating would of been nice in December and it needs a thorough spring clean

I was glad to find a Hotel Princess under Easytobook.com hotels but was shocked to find the difference compared to that of websites. The locations and the interiors and exteriors were totally different. The room was cozy but it was kinda ok to spend your exhaust sleep and the stairs was to steep to climb over, There was a 14" color television without a remote control,There is a plastic disposal glass to drink water directly from the basin,the window can't be opened,there was some kinda insect that bite me in my leg, No washing soaps,No water Jug etc. The breakfast was satisfactory,The light system was too dim and the one above the mirror doesn't work,The shared bathroom latch was disguising and couldn't open for 15 mins,the light was out of order in one shower room,The toilet was cozy and hard to turn around,No soaps and room freshener in the toilet as well as the bed room. The smoking notice directly addressed on me and pasted at my room door was a shocking tremor when a guest in that particularly don't smoke after all.
Above all the staff in the reception during the first check in was rude,especially the dark guy. He should learn the meaning of PR and should learn how to communicate with the guest.You can't underestimate your guest and moreover I recommend the management to make a research before they employ such type of employees in future. And his qualities was beyond comparable with a general staff of a normal hotel in my country and neighboring India. Guest Relation Service was totally negative. And I found some other dormitory was far more better than the hotel compared with price and budget. I am totally dissatisfied with the hospitality provided there in Hotel Princess.

This hotel is by far the MOST disgusting place i have EVER stayed. As a college student on a budget, i did not have high expectations for the place but this by far was worse than i anticipated. I could not sleep because there were BED BUGS crawling all over my bed and a few days after my trip i noticed all of the bites all over my arms from them. As i was cleaning out my luggage i even saw a couple of bugs had gotten into my suitcase. It was a hassle to have to check and wash everything multiple times. and the paranoia of wondering if there were any bugs that was in my stuff that i missed is TERRIBLE. there is only one bathroom and three showers per floor for 6 rooms!! if you can, AVOID this hotel. only thing that it had going for it was the decent location. But i would definitely pay extra to stay at another hotel given the bug situation. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!

Room Tip: avoid all rooms.
