Great location for hookers and weed. However.... no ensuite bathroom - had to go down a corridor. No working TV. Beds old and uncomfortable. And of course, no sleep due to street noise and 3am guests. Staff very friendly, but lipstick on a pig.

historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

No, well at least not in our room. May be worth contacting them direct to ask if they have any plans to get them, they're really friendly & helpful.
