We booked here purely on it being cheap but located reasonably close to the centre of the city. As other reviewers have said, you get what you pay for, but I would go back. It is located on the outer canal ring, just 2 mins walk from the Marriott hotel (so, as you would expect, the area and location are...

With this hotel, you really get what you pay for but in fairness, there was a good guy in the reception who was really nice named Edward from Latvia who helped us carry our big luggage up the steep & narrow spiral staircase since there was no lift & our room was in the second floor. He also gave us...

Do not go to this place. Hotel was absolutely terrible. Room was like a doghouse. It was so small and dirty that we couldnt stay there. The breakfest was nonexistent and we had to go to restaurant because there were nothing eatable. It felt like living in a tent. If you have other options do not go here. Wc or...

Ive given this place a poor rating compared to other hotels we have stayed across the world. That said it is in a nice part of Amsterdam within easy walking distance to the main tourist areas, 2 of the 3 staff members we met were very friendly and helpful, the other didn't look like they wanted to be there at...

As expected this is simple accommodation. I am not sure what people are expecting from this hotel as it is obvious that it is a simple bed, wardrobe and hand washing facilities. It has a decent amount of space in the room. The shared toilet is incredibly tiny and takes quite a lot of navigational and contortionist skills to enter...

Hotel is really good value for Amsterdam and is in the nicest part of the city - the museums quarter. It's in a quiet street and the single room was basic but comfortable, bathrooms were clean enough, free WIFI. Breakfast was good. Close to the bus to get to the airport, supermarkets and cafes. Staff were pleasant and were able...

No strong emotions either way really, which is by no means a bad thing. I was in Amsterdam for 3 days with 3 other people, (average age 23), and the hotel was perfect for us. Cheap and in a good location, if you walk 5-10 minutes left or right at the end of the road you'll end up somewhere interesting,...

Hotel was very basic. Showers and toilets clean but quite run down with ceilings quite old and mouldy. Supplied basic breakfast but room very small and cramped. Staff ok, not too friendly but gave information if asked. The only positive was the location as it is walking distance from some good attractions and nice city centres.
