We stayed for three nights 28th-31st Jan.
Before booking we read lots of reviews on this site and booked despite comments about bed bugs, bad breakast and rude staff. Glad we took the chance as it had none of these!
Inner is split into hotel and hostel and we stayed in a hotel room.
We navigated ourselves from Schipol Airport to Inner and found every step of the journey simple. Go to the bus terminal outside the AP, find the 197 stand and get off at Miseumplein (€4- a screen on the bus tells your the next stop just before you get there). Get off take a left, then first left off the Main Street, first left again past a fashionable homeware shop, then first right and Inner should be on your left hand side on the corner.
Check in was simple and the staff very pleasant and helpful (asked for an extra pillow, dealt with very politely and efficiently).
We got to the room and were pleasantly surprised. It was clean, adequately sized, bright and pretty enough. Huge windows gave a beautiful view of the Amsterdam city scape. The bathroom was large, well stocked with roll, soap and shampoo and the shower powerful and hot. Noticed there was also a free and easy to operate safe in the wardrobe. We also had a TV in the room which also had English language channels. The room was no smoking.
Breakfast was very continental and I can see why people were disappointed if they expected a proper hotel breakfast. There was a good selection however, cold meats, cheese, bread, biscuits, cereal, jam, fruit juices tea and coffee. My partner was disappointed but I made a big salami, ham and cheese sandwich each morning.
The only grumbles with breakfast would be that the dining area is very scruffy and run down. Seems to be used as a storage area and was the site of some long forgotten dream for a bar. There was also no toaster!
The area was really lovely and residential and took about 10 mins to walk right into the centre, past all the museums (but Van Gough was closed for renovation) and IAmsterdam sign. Inner is also a very short walk to a few of the best coffee shops we went to. Rookies, which has a very relaxed pub feel. And De Dampkring- translates as 'The Atmosphere' which really says it all. Also, look out for Bowie, the cute but temperamental resident cat.
It was quite a walk up to Dam Square and the RLD, but nothing took more than 30mins to walk to.
Overall, we were very impressed with Inner as a budget hotel. For the very little money you pay, you get a bright, clean room, friendly staff with a central location. Thumbs up!
