Very close to Amsterdam centraal, dam square, the red light district and center of the canal rings. You will find it hard to get a more central location at this price. The hotel offers basic rooms and we hat a room for 4 with ensuite bath. Relatively quite but for a little street noise and decent beds. Expect little more... More

The only positive - location close to most attractions and station. Price is only reflective of the location. So basically everything else is quite bad. No elevators (we took our big suitcases up 3 floors in an extremely narrow and dingy staircase), Old building, smelly interiors, room was like a dungeon and a cramped hole. Barely any place to walk... More

Good location. Nice bathroom, although the room was small its only to sleep in anyway. Lots of awkward stairs tho. Decent price for the location too. I would stay again and have used this hotel a fee times.

Stayed here with a group for a stag do. I made contact and booked by email and checked they would accept us. They were very friendly and negotiated a group discount. The room was a small dorm style with bunk beds and shared ensuite bathroom. It was very basic but clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower was hot.... More

I arrived on a Friday to Amsterdam, and for various reasons, I found I had no hotel reservation. I went to the Continental hotel, and thanks to receptionist (Feiz, I think that was the right way to write your name) I could have the problem solved. In addition, during the weekend Feiz provided me help in many other things and... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
