This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a nice and affordable place to stay in Amsterdam. Not luxurious but perfect for somewhere to sleep, with quirky décor and nice staff. We had a private bathroom which was really clean, as well as the room. But the shared bathrooms were nice and clean so might be worth saving money by having a room with shared bathrooms. Located in a lively neighbourhood with shops and restaurants nearby, and the tram is only a few minutes walk away to get you to the centre. Wi-Fi worked really well and staff very friendly! would definitely stay again!

Stayed in room with private bathroom best idea
Room so tiny but does the job sleep on two single beds which is ment to be a double :(
Scary enough to get the tram back at night time and the walk to the hotel bit to far out
Not the best for giving information either had to work most things out for ourselves
Breakfast was amazing ! Clean and tidy also

Hi Erin

Thank you for your review. Some people call Central Station the city center, we call Amsterdam-West our center of the city. In this part of Amsterdam there are many places for diner and drinks which we love to visit, all reachable in walking distance. Next time, try some of our staff recommendations around the hotel. Hope to see you again.

Good not good. It's looks nice on the pictures but it's small as hell. Claustrophobic and expensive. Most of the rooms don't have windows at all. So it's very stuffy. I would not recommend it at all. I mean it's clean and the stuff is friendly. But that's it. U can find sth better for the same money. I actually want my money back.

Hi Dominik

We are very sad to hear you are disappointed. Our hotel is one of a kind and some rooms are certainly not made for claustrophobic people. On our website, information is provided on any room even the square meters.

Nice hotel and very different from any other. It's communal bathrooms but we upgraded to have our own shower and sink. The room alone was very small and couldn't swing a cat in it but really we were only sleeping there as we were out and about during the day. The Kevin bacon bar is good we had the nachos and pizza during the week and a hot chocolate to rinse it down. For 1 week it cost my other half around £850 and for what you get I think really it's a rip off but the experience was good as we were inside a bookcase which was different from a standard hotel room. Would go again if the price was right

We stayed 2 nights in the "Casa No Casa" room, which was a four bed room with a separate shower and toilet. The rooms are small, however as we were exploring Amsterdam we only needed the room to sleep in, so was perfect for it's purpose.

Not all of the rooms have private bathrooms but don't let this put you off as the communal toilet and shower rooms are exceptionally clean and very modern, in fact the best communal facilities I have ever seen.

All the Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived early and they kindly prepared our room for us to check in and explore.

The Hotel is situated a 35 minute walk to the centre, however there are regular trams a 2 minute walk from the hotel and on our 2nd day we made use of the bikes they have to rent for 12.50 euros per day.

We took advantage of the Kevin Bacon Bar on our 1st night and the atmosphere was chilled and friendly. Jimmy has to have a special mention as his cocktail making skills were absolutely excellent and I wish we could have returned on our 2nd night to enjoy more. We were even entertained by the local (amazing) choir who had popped in for a "quiet" drink - thank you Leo!

I would recommend this hotel for its cool, friendly vibe and if we ever return to Amsterdam I would definitely book into Hotel Not Hotel.

Thank you to everyone who made our stay very enjoyable.
