“Wow.. thats a lot of stairs..”
Reviewed 15 October 2010

We stayed here as part of a 2 month tour of Europe. The hotel is quite old and expensive for what you get compared to other hostels we stayed at in Europe.
We were on the top floor and the stairs were steep with small steps not the most pleasant time trying to carry all your suitcases up there.
We had a 3 person private room and bathroom. The bathroom was good size however the room was old and had a huge whole in the wall that had my friend stuffing her towel in so no bugs could come out. There was a beam in the room which caused issues when sitting up in bed.
The location was OK. Close to the Heineken factory and walking distance to all the things you needed. The bus stop was across the road with cafes around the corner.
Reception were OK, not overly friendly but answered our questions when we needed.

Reviewed 25 September 2010

The location was good, getting in from a long flight IN THE MORNING and also very tired to be greeted rudely by front desk person who actually had us waiting in the lounge for an hour.. . The lounge was also gloomy and dirty with dirty dishes on the tables.
The room is very small and the beds are very uncomfortable. My comforter had blood stains all over and there was a awful smell coming from the bathroom. I will advise travellers do not stay at this hotel you will be very disappointed with the way you are treated by the guy who works the morning shift and atmosphere of the hotel.

This hotel was hardly better than a cheap hostel. The sheets weren't clean and there wsa no soap in the bathroom. Only a few rooms had a bathroom attached and all other rooms shared a single bathroom in the hall. Breakfast was typical, bread and cereal, and the location was alright

Don't stay there if your don't like stairs. Anything above the ground floor is a massive trek. Otherwise the rooms are moderate if not slightly stale. The name does the place justice. Perfect for a short stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights during the Amsterdam part of a longer holiday. I was having trouble finding a decent hotel in our price range - accomodations in Dam are pretty expensive. Euphemia did the job just fine. It was good value, a basic, clean room, an okay location (halfway between the downtown part and the museams part of town.) Anywhere we wanted to go was within walking distance. The receptionist was friendly and we felt safe. It's not pretty, but if you're looking for clean, budget accomodations and you're not planning on hanging out in your room, I'd recommend Euphemia.
