Reviewed July 7, 2012

Friendly staff but everything else was m iserable. Poor, boring breakfast, dangerous stairs, poorly equiped bathroom, towels and linen old and not so white, room (no. 34) dark, no view exept wall of next building - very close. TV not working, broken antenae cable, for four days staff did nothing in this cas e. Probably good for backpackers, dormitory rooms have a street view. Not recomend for the others .

After reading a few negative reviews, we were extremely hesitant to stay at Hotel Il Giardino. However we couldn't find any other hostel-hotel that had such a central location. We decided to take a gamble and stayed there for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The staff and the owner were very nice. We got in Amsterdam around 10AM, was able to store our luggage, and moved into our rooms around 1PM. The rooms were clean, and we had our own bathroom as we had requested. We wanted a quiet room and got one that faces the back alley, so it was fairly dimly light but was very quiet. The stairs are honestly ok - we were 3 girls each with our own backpack and luggage and none of us had any issues. And they were a lot less vertical than some of the stairs at the Anne Frank House. The location proved to be amazing as we were able to walk everywhere. Being right next to the red light district and Chinatown (and numerous coffee houses, there's one 2 doors down) means that you'll walk through beautiful ladies, great food options and scenic canals on your way to other attractions. Check-out was easy as well and we were able to store our luggage until 1pm.

The only thing that made this an negative experience is the mosquitos. Because the window did not have screen, there were mosquitos in the room and they were INTENSE. I think I got about 20 bites in 2 nights, half of them on my face. We bought a plugged-in mosquito repellent and closed the windows for the second night and the situation only improved a little bit. I don't know if this is due to our window facing the small, damp alley or this is an uniform experience of Amsterdam hostels, but it was definitely a deal-breaker for the stay :-(
