“It's a hostel”
Reviewed November 23, 2009

We stayed in this hotel few days and would never come back again. It's more expensive than a hostel, but has same conditions: bath and toilet on the floor, dirty towels. Breakfast is poor: drinks from the machine, meat, cheese, bread, serial, boiled eggs - stuff not to dye! :) Rooms are samll and noisy, you can hear everything. Of course people come to Amster not to stay in the hotel, but it's possible to find cheaper palce with same conditions.

Having read the reviews of the hotel before I left, I was slighty wary about going to this hotel. As soon as we got there, we were informed that the hotel had no mention of our booking. Thankfully, the staff there were friendly and were able to sort us out with alternate accommodation at no extra price. The staff wer really friendly and were able to give us advice on how to make the most out of our trip. Although the bathrooms and toilets are communal, given how reasonable the price for the hotel were I can live with it. The hotel's within walking distance of the major city hotspot, and there's a tram line near the hotel than can take you to any of the cultural aspects of the city.

If you're interested in staying in Amsterdam on a budget, then I would reccommend staying at the Hotel Princess.

The toilet and showers were disguisting. I had tablets stolen from my room. One of the two staff I saw was extremely rude. I thought it was actually very expensive considerikng the poor state of the placed.

Bearing in mind Amsterdam can be an extremely epensive city to stay in, the Hotel Princess was fine, the receptionist was friendly and respectful, the room adequate, sheets clean, and breakfast was basic but ok. Good location just south of Leidseplein (10 mins), and within walking distance of the northern entrance of Vondelpark. There's also an Albert Heijn supermarket located nearby on Overtoom.

My friend and I stayed at The Hotel Princess (Hotel Perv), we didnt have a very plesant stay. The hotel receptionist was very pervy and was getting very irrate when we said we didnt want him to come to our room and insisted he would let himself in. I have never had this experience before and find it very unprofessional. Also another receptionist when we were leaving was very flirtalious and wanted a kiss before we left. We didnt have our room cleaned once when we stayed there for 4 nights, when we arrived there it wasnt that clean anyway. My friend and I didnt feel very safe in the hotel, which seemed to be more like a hostel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Amsterdam is lovely place to visit we loved it but were very dissapointed with the hotel

the hotel is very well situated. we took public transport from the airport (train to centraal then tram 1) and it was easy to get to. 5 mins from busy busy leidseplein which is handy. check in was simple.
we had a room on floor 4 - very small and tiring climbing all those steep steep stairs but thats normal for amsterdam. no en suite but sharing a "douche" isn't that bad. never had to queue etc.
breakfast was simple but ample. nice dining room

the guy on reception was a bit of a ....... we ordered a taxi to the airport and he started lecturing us on how we must wait for the taxi otherwise there will be a problem - uncalled for.

overall pretty much perfect for what we needed - try simple bar just up the road (towards leidesplein) good food, nice heineken and friednly service
