What do i say about this hotel. The only good thing is the amazing location. 10mins (400 meters) walk to the Amsterdam central station. Looks clean from outside. It is located around 7mins from the red light area and 15mins walk to the DAM square. That's where the good things end.
The rooms doesnt have any windows at all. Never seen a hotel which doesnt have any ventilation or any window. You need lights to be turned on 24 hours. The bed was comfortable. The room was not very clean. The room had an electric kettle and sugar and milk but no tea and coffee. This is absolutely weird.
The room had a double bed and a single bed. That's where the space ends. No space to move around if you have 2-3 suitcases. There is a musty smell in the room as that is due to lack of ventilation.
The bathroom is average and very tiny and there is hardly any space to move around
WIFI was free and the speed was average. Some device couldn't even connect to the hotel WIFI but you will get plenty of free WIFI signals from nearby pubs and restaurants.
The hotel is located inside an alley so if you have a car or a taxi dropping your from somewhere you will have to walk around 150 meters to reach the hotel.
The breakfast is served at a next door IRISH PUB called MOLLY's and it was decent. Had warm and cold food options. The tuna salad was amazing.
use this hotel to just sleep for 8 hours and that's it. Spend the entire day outside and come back only when you have no options left. There are many pubs and restaurants around this hotel and they are open till very late in the night.
All the tourist places are close by and within walking distance.
This is a very budget hotel. If you want better quality rooms then look elsewhere. If you are okay with just a roof over your head then choose this. This is avoidable for sure.
