Stayed here 20 years ago, which is why thought would try again. Very disappointed rooms ok, no atmosphere in bar. we had to leave at 7.30 in morning to catch flight home, firstly we woke up the person on duty who was asleep across some chairs, then when I asked for 2 coffees you would of thought I asked him to chop his arm off. He looked at the coffee machine and sighed and looked at me and sighed, I told him not to bother as it was obviously too much trouble.

I booked a room at Hotel The Crown for a solo weekend trip to Amsterdam. I wanted cheap lodging in a good location but wanted a private room so didn't want to stay at a hostel. Hotel The Crown ended up being exactly what I was looking for. The room was clean and comforatable. The shared bathroom and shower were both also always very clean. The hotel wireless internet wasn't working while I was there but I was able to access the signal from a local cafe. The location was really fantastic. It is right in the middle of the red light district and easy walking to bars, cafe's and coffee houses. It was less than a 5 minute walk from Amsterdam Central Train Station and within walking distance of all the major sights. It is also right on the canal so quite scenic. I had a room on the third floor and it was very quiet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the stairs are brutal but that is typical of Amsterdam. The staff was very friendly and offered lots of advice on local places. Drinks and coffee at the bar were also cheap compared to local places. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for a weekend trip and was more than satisfied with what was on offer. Upon arrival our room was ready early, the gentleman was friendly, although the other not so much. The bar was well stocked and open till 3am. Internet access was available for 3.50 euros upon request, and if your that way inclined the owners allow you to smoke in the bar area after a certain time at night.

Clean bedding, neatly made on arrival. Basic room, with bed,wardrobe and a sink. Shower and toilet areas are shared, unless you get a 3 pax or 4 pax room, then you have an "en suite" shower.

All in all a fair price for the centre of Amsterdam, 150 euros for 2 nights, if you dont like hostels then id head here. Location is excellent
