3 of us booked to stay here for a weekend in the Dam. Booked solely on its location and ludicrously low prices! 3 single beds, 1 wardrobe, a sink and a open shower with a small curtain next to one of the beds. A shared toilet outside the room, however. Fine for us as a group of friends but could...

Terrible. Avoid at all costs. The whole place smells. Bathrooms old and tired, staff are rude. The rooms are basic and considering the fact that there are hundreds of other hotels in close proximity you would be far better off looking elsewhere.

We used this hotel as a base for a festival we attended as it was very close to Amsterdam Central Station, literally a 5 min walk. We booked a 3 bed hotel room and when we got there we got upgraded to a 3 bed apartment (apartment 1), I wouldn't quite say it was an apartment it was quite small...

This was our first time in Amsterdam and we loved it! The location of Hotel Continental was fantastic for everything! Friendly staff, great value and great location. The room was comfortable but the room is tiny, the walls are paper thin and you could heard the people next door and heard the street noise all night but we didn't spend...

This hotel location is amazing. Super close to everything in the city centre, heaps of food shops and cafes around - it was the best location. Staff were friendly enough and the room was clean. Only stayed one night and I highly recommended it simply for the location.

For 40 euros a night right in the centre of amsterdam close to central station it does the job. Near all the main attractions. Tooms are very small and basic but for a group of friends it was fine. Stairs are very steep and winding.

You get what you pay for with this hotel! The rooms are simple with bed and tv but I didn't go to stay in the room all day! The access is not for the less able with loads of stairs to access rooms but the location is excellent with it being 5 mins from dam square and other sights! There...

I stayed at this hotel during my trip to Amsterdam. The location is in the central, Damrak. Walking distance to everywhere and only a few steps away to Amsterdam Centraal, Dam Square, museums, bars, restaurants and shops. Halal food is a few steps from the hotel (just in front of it). The room is small (like most of the hotels...

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.
