Ive given this place a poor rating compared to other hotels we have stayed across the world. That said it is in a nice part of Amsterdam within easy walking distance to the main tourist areas, 2 of the 3 staff members we met were very friendly and helpful, the other didn't look like they wanted to be there at...

As expected this is simple accommodation. I am not sure what people are expecting from this hotel as it is obvious that it is a simple bed, wardrobe and hand washing facilities. It has a decent amount of space in the room. The shared toilet is incredibly tiny and takes quite a lot of navigational and contortionist skills to enter... More

Hotel is really good value for Amsterdam and is in the nicest part of the city - the museums quarter. It's in a quiet street and the single room was basic but comfortable, bathrooms were clean enough, free WIFI. Breakfast was good. Close to the bus to get to the airport, supermarkets and cafes. Staff were pleasant and were able... More

No strong emotions either way really, which is by no means a bad thing. I was in Amsterdam for 3 days with 3 other people, (average age 23), and the hotel was perfect for us. Cheap and in a good location, if you walk 5-10 minutes left or right at the end of the road you'll end up somewhere interesting,... More

Hotel was very basic. Showers and toilets clean but quite run down with ceilings quite old and mouldy. Supplied basic breakfast but room very small and cramped. Staff ok, not too friendly but gave information if asked. The only positive was the location as it is walking distance from some good attractions and nice city centres.

Hotel was clean, washrooms clean, shower okay wear flip flops. Breakfast was really good, staff okay, not overly friendly, not unfriendly. One staff member was really nice and helpful, the rest did not want to be bothered at all. Would I stay here again, only if I got the first floor, very steep stairs and they do not help you... More

The Hotel is very good located and you reach the old town easy by feet, but the hotel itself is in a safe, calm neighborhood. The price is very good, so don't expect a 5-Star Hotel. But it's clean, nice and small. The breakfast was also ok, nothing to complain in this price range, above average. We took a room... More
