No problems with this place. Clean and quiet and a good location, and good price. The stairs are quite steep to get up and down, but this is common in Amsterdam. I spent my last night in the dorm which I wouldn't recommend because it's right next to the lobby and breakfast area so noisy in the early morning.

I booked this hotel with a fully refundable deal if cancelled ahead of the time. I cancelled my booking a month prior to the check in. What do I see? Charges on my credit card. More shocking was the amount on my credit card. They charged me the double of the whole stay! No contact to my emails.. I am...

The best thing going for this hotel is the location, right outside the inner canal loop. I was aware and prepared for the steep steps, shared facilities and no lift. The single room I was given on the fifth floor was updated and even roomy by European standards. The bathrooms were clean and the water was hot. When we arrived,...

The hotel is small but every hotel in Amsterdam are small. The room was only the bed and an a chair with a small table, no space for baggage. The most horrible thing was the bathroom. the shower was terrible, everytime I got a shower, the whole bathroom was flooded and you could see all the dirt up. We talked...

My best friend and I stayed here for a weekend in Amsterdam, the location is great, just 5 mins from Leiseplein and 10 from Rembrandtplein, the beds were so comfortable, perfect when you need a rest after a hard nights partying! The downside though was the shared toilet, it was a struggle to sit down and my knees were hitting...

I stayed there with two friends for three days, it's five minute walk away from leidseplein, and fifteen minute walk from Dam square, and two minute away from Vondelpark and the musuemplein and one minute away from a supermarket.

Last year I was accommodated with friends at Hotel Crystal in Amsterdam. Hotel is set in a prime location in the centre of Amsterdam. Room was very commonly furnished but clean. In hotel is available high-speed wireless connection free of charge. It is a hotel, which is situated in good location and for a good price.

We booked it through Expedia as a special offer. Room was very small however we only needed it for sleeping at night. The shower was very clean which we were happy about. About a ten min walk from the centre where all the shops are. We picked the hotel mostly due to the price and location. The breakfast was included...

Fist of all, the losers who don't like this place because of the stairs are complete and utter donkeys. The stairs are the best part! Steep, small and hilarious! After a few hours of 'casually' sipping beers in a great city like Amsterdam, figuring out a way to climb those bad boys is an adventure in and of itself. I...
