I'm glad we didn't rely on the reviews on this site and went anyway. The staff was nice and friendly and they changed our room when we thought our original room was too small. We stayed during the week so didn't have the noise from next door. GREAT location, right down the block from the flower market, around the corner...

Booked a stay for 2 nights and when I arrived at the room with my family, I was shocked that the door to the room would not shut and there were holes in the walls. All the bathrooms has been renovated, but the rest of the room is old and in need of the same renovation. I immediately starting looking...

Spent two nights in the Agora while visiting Amsterdam and I would say it was about what I expected.Contrary to some of the reviews on here, my wife and I did not have any problem with bed bugs, so that's a big plus.

After investigating the matter, having checked all locks, also looked into the history of the lock of their room we found nothing out of the ordinary. Furthermore we also viewed the video of the camera on their floor. Our housekeeping staff was in the room once every day and other then the guest nobody has entered the room. Ofcourse we...

This is a clean, basic hotel located right next to the flower market. Easily accessible by foot / tram. Good wifi. The breakfast is very mediocre and the weekend rates are pretty steep. But thats Amsterdam on a weekend :-(

Hostile, unhelpful and aggressive staff. Situated next to a night club that makes the walls shake until 4-5am. Filthy rooms. Filthy bathoom. Not even bothered to change filthy sheets from the previous occupant. Eaten alive by bugs and charged 400 euros for one Saturday Night despite the rooms being capped at 125 euros. Avoid at all costs and get dumps...

Stayed here for two nights when at a conference in Amsterdam at recommendation of colleagues in Amsterdam, since I do not know the city well. Hotel was relatively expensive compared to quality it offered (Eur130 per night for single room). Beds were fine though I did wake up covered in bites and then read Trip Advisor reviews about bed bugs...
