Hoksbergen Apartments
Ranked #292 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 14 November 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the 1st floor apartment with 4 people. The location is superb, on one of the best streets for boutique shops and charming canals. The concierges at the front desk were very polite and helpful and even held our bags after checkout while awaiting our train departure. However, there were two downfalls to this apartment. The first, the bathroom was not well cleaned and the tub grout was full of mold and mildew. The shower curtain also has mildew and very much needs to be replaced. Secondly, the bedroom with the double bed was right on the street and it was nearly impossible to sleep at night due to the noise. We literally had to move the top mattress into the common room so we could get some sleep the second night. Would probably not stay here again, but rather would take a chance at the hotel.

Stayed: November 2014, travelled with friends

The location of the hotel, and the dedicated toilet for each room of the hotel are the main advantages, because most of the budget hotels in Amsterdam have a shared toilet for multiple rooms.
The breakfast buffet is fair, and the staff was very helpful.

I think the last time this was redecorated was in the 1970s some time. It was clean, but the carpeted wall was a bit weird and the decor had seen better days. Be careful with the stairs leading to the apartment, they are very steep. Otherwise, it was a great location and fairly quiet. The beds were very small, especially the singles in the other room. I barely fit on one, just had a couple of inches to spare.

A 2 minute stroll from the main hotel, these apartments were ideally located in the heart of Amsterdam in one of their traditional buildings, meaning that it is narrow with very steep stairs. We only had one bag and were on the first floor, so it didn't cause us too much trouble, but the handrail is needed. Externally, the building has character and gives you a feel for what it must be like for a local, however, inside the building and rooms are a little basic, but adequate.
For us it ticked the boxes, having a central location, away from the noisier red light district and avoiding the need to box separate rooms for our young adults/kids.
As you open the door off the street, it did smell a little damp, but it was fine elsewhere.
Coming from a semi-rural town in Scotland, we did find the single-glazed windows and frames, and the curtains did little to mute noise from the street, but at least it is a fairly quiet area. However we were still woken up several times each night: I think noise gets caught in the narrow street. We saw it all as part of the experience.
Dam Square is less than a 10 minute walk. Cafes with coffee and croissants, supermarkets and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk.
The kitchen and bathroom were basic but adequate.
The photos show the apartments at their very best. I think they could now do with a little TLC and improved lighting.

Room Tip: Higher may be quieter, but be ready for the steep stairs

Loved the location as soon as we reached. Canal facing hotel close to Dam square(10 min).Getting bags to the second floor was only half the challenge! There was no place in the room for 2 bags. But the canal view from the room, great breakfast included, friendly staff, convenient location make it a great place to rest while exploring amsterdam.
