Condo Gardens is not a hotel but a number of appartements in a converted warehouse. There is no proper reception and no restaurant, breakfastroom or bar. Flats are relatively spacious and equipped with kitchen, including fridge and microwave oven. The style and quality is somewhat of your first students apartement, simple and often rather wornout furniture. The main problem of this building are the very thin walls which are not soundproof at all. Be prepared to hear your neighbours television and their phonecalls.
Bathrooms are tiny and the lightswitch is hidden in the cabinet above the sink, but soap and towels and a hairdryer are provided.
Condo Gardens is obviously not the first choice for some travellers, but if you are looking to stay near the Eilandje area there are not many alternatives either. If you want to stay in this part of town and cook your own food, this is a good choice if you can bear with some noise. Prices are moderate and there are larger flats for groups as well. On the other hand if you like backpacking and are used to hostels this place is sheer luxury. Clientele is a very broad mix of budget travellers, some seamen, familys, partypeople and longterm visitors. Wifi is free, but relativly slow and some guests complain about a weak signal, but i never had any problems, you just have to leave the sign-in screen open while browsing.
Be aware that you need a mobile phone to call the staff which is usually not on the premises and that if you arrive outside office hours you have to obtain a keycode by email in advance. Outside office hours there is no staff and no check-in machine either, so if you turn up late at night and dont have your instructions printed out, you wont get in.
