This hotel offers cheap, basic accomodation by the red light district. The location is great for getting around Amsterdam and even though it is in the heart of party central (good food within easy reach, and 5 minutes to the trains) and numeroua "cafes" it felt safe and the staff were very helpful. A bit tatty around the edges but basically clean...a good alternative to hostel accom. I would recommend asking for a room at the back as it is quieter there.

Friendly and helpful staff, shared toilets and basic clean rooms on the small side.The stairs would be an issue for anyone with any physical disabilities - very steep.The location is the great feature - 10min walk to the Central railway station 20min walk to cruise terminal or tram 26 from the railway station. Very good eateries within easy walking distance.The red light district is very close so not a really good family location.

I have nothing to complain about the Hotel the Crown.
The rooms are not magnificent but I wasn't expecting the Ritz. It is a small hotel located right in the centre of Amsterdam, next to the Red light district, with everything close. The rooms were clean and they had their own shower which I didn't expect, and clean towels.
There is someone at reception 24 hours and the service was very friendly.
The bar is open 'till late in case you fancy a night cap or more.
Value for money, like I said I wasn't expecting anything else and the price I believe is similar to other hotels in the area.
