“Not luxury, good location, expensive for what it is, but if your stuck.”
Reviewed 8 June 2011

Positives. location is great, close to everything, dam square is 4-5 min walk away centraal station less than 10 mins away on foot. on street with loads of bars cafes and restaurants. Hotel staff are friendly. Had nice bar with alot of character attached which was good fun, bar man even let us sample a few beers before choosing. Nice TV and full cable, fan in room and alar clock and evertything worked.
Negatives Would agree with all comments on stairs unbelievably steep, would not like to be carrying large suitcase. Room was very small for a double, sheets were dirty (some small stains), very noisy area at night but had window open because room got very hot otherwise, forget sleeping late in morning, wont happen. had ensuite bathroom which was again Tiny but everything worked, fresh towels delivered every day but cheap irratating kind. hot water seemed to come and go, guess they have water tank and once used up that was it.
If i had paid less for this room i would not complain but for price of over 115 per night i expect better and I'm sure you can easily find if you dont book at as short notice as i did.
Amsterdam has lot of poor hotels, i have stayed in worse but would not go as far to say i recommend. You can do beter but if you are stuck, you could do worse as well.

The hotel is very conveniently located, near Central Station and City Center. The rooms are just above an old bar. Therefore it is very noisy until at leat 3AM even on weekdays. Rooms are very ran down, and very small. I recommend this hotel if you are in Amsterdam for partying . The price is low compared to other hotels in the area. Worth the value if you don't expect too much.

This is a cheap hotel, and you get what you pay for. Do not book here if you want plush, or top class etc.

Its basic, and is fine if you just want somewhere to get your head down for a couple of nights after getting drunk or stoned.

This is our eleventh trip to Amsterdam over the last few years. We’ve stayed in a variety of hotels and are familiar with hospitality standards in Amsterdam. I travelled with my partner, and two friends. We stayed in the top floor of Hotel Internaational for four nights. Both rooms have an ensuite – one of which had a jacuzzi bath.

We had read many positive reviews on this hotel and we were looking forward to the visit. The hotel is marketed as a ‘budget hotel’ so I wasn’t expecting much. Just hot running water, a good shower and someplace comfortable to sleep. Unfortunately the hotel offered none of these.

We paid extra for an en-suite room which we couldn’t use. The bath/Jacuzzi did NOT HAVE ANY TAPS and had to be filled with the shower head. This took nearly a long time. When it eventually was filled the hotel manager told us it was leaking into the room downstairs.

After the first night we did not have hot water in the mornings. The Hotel Manager told us to wait 20 minutes and try again. But there only seemed to be hot water for showers in the evening and night times.

The general feel of the room was that it was in desperate need for repair. The furniture was worn and tatty and one of the chairs was broken. The curtains had fallen down and were ‘tied’ onto a string. The carpet had also seen better days. The double bed was two ‘guest beds’ (similar to what you might have stored away at home), set into a wooden box with a mattress on top. It wasn’t very comfortable.
On the positive side, the room was quite large. Smoking was allowed in the rooms and the Hotel Manager and the cleaning lady were all very pleasant and welcoming. The Bar downstairs is really cosy and had that ‘old-world’ Dutch feel to it. It’s location is five minutes (or less) from the railway station which is great, and its right in one of the best areas for coffee-shops.

If this hotel spend a little money on re-decoration and repair, and sorted out its plumbing problems then it would be a little gem, unfortunately is still got a long way to go.

I loved the hotel, the staff, the rooms, etc. Clean rooms, mellow staff, cute bar, convenient. If you plan to go to Amsterdam strictly to party, then this place is perfect. Walking distance to the train station and right in the heart of the red light district. Unfortunately, the noise of the red light district does make its way it the rooms and if I ever go back to Amsterdam (which hopefully I will because it is a GORGEOUS city) I will probably not stay there based on the location alone. Otherwise, I totally recommend this for young backpackers and party animals.
