The room was so small with the bed up against the wall. Hardly any floor space available. There was constant chatter from people in reception with no regard to anyone who may be sleeping. The location near the station was good and we couldnt here any street noise. The cost was ridiculous for what we got. Very hard to recommend...

Without going into detail it is over priced and disgrace to the industry and a blot on Amsterdam for allowing this sub rate accommodation. Be warned DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT THIS PLACE. Because we had booked in advance and one look as soon as we opened the the door,OH NO. This would rate as a $40 a night hotel...

For the price we paid it was a little bad. It was too expensive. No elevator, do people with low mobility cannot go to this hotel. You have a coffee shop right downstairs and amazing kebab snack bar. The location is good. They only give you 1 towel per person but if you ask for more, no problem. The internet...

Stayed in this hotel for 3 days, during the Easter, and overall found it a comfortable and friendly environment. From what I gather, there is the option to share a room and bathroom with other guests, however my family and I chose to get our own separate room. It was clean, relatively cosy and had all the essentials (even a...

My cousin had booked this hotel because off the location. Upon arrival after googling this hotel I were happy with the location because I knew the area. However I were appalled at the hotel itself. The reception area is less desiring old deco and chairs that need to be thrown away. Stairs are tapped down to obviously cover the wear...

I stayed in the Hotel Continental 2 weeks ago. I had booked a 3 night stay but due to a delayed flight arrived 1 day late. Staff were very decent and gave us back the money for the first night that we couldn't stay despite stating on booking.com that there was no refunds available. We were put on the top...

Because this is a 2star hotel you can't expect a lot, but it's clean, warm, internet is working (even on 4th floor), and stuff is really kind and friendly. I would say that the biggest plus of this hotel is location. Once when you come from central station (2min walk from hotel) you don't need to think about transportation any...

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.
