“The best place to stay in Dam..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

After a stay for a couple of nights in a nearby hotel that was more expensive than here, we wanted to stay in Amsterdam for an extra night, so we moved on and found the De Gerstekorrel.

The hotel is right in the heart of Dam, on a main street but our room which was on the first floor and overlooking the main street was surprisingly quiet. yes of course there will be some street noise, but nothing you can't live with.

The rooms are small, but have everything you need. The bed was comfy (we had 2 single duvets on our double bed which was a bit odd), a TV with lots of English stations and a small but very clean shower room with toilet.

The hotel generally is very clean, it has a bit of a boutique hotel feel about it, very contemporary and fresh. They have done really well to keep what must be a very challenging building in good condition and comfortable.

Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Wifi was 5 euros for 24 hours (It is free I believe if you book your room with the hotel directly). If your flight home is later on in the day, there is a locked luggage room you can use for 2 euros.

In future, this will be our first port of call when we visit Amsterdam. A real gem of a find and perfect for a few days in one of the most amazing funky Cities on the planet!

There are dozens of cheap hotels in Amsterdam, more or less on every corner, most are cheap for a reason. De Gerstekorrel is proof that cheap can still be clean, comfy and very very cool.

We were very tired from our journey to Amsterdam and we wanted to drop our bags off at the hotel and maybe get something to eat, so we arrived at the hotel reception and were greeted by a lovely receptionist who was more than happy to put us in our room straight away. The hotel is right where you need it to be and fantastic value for money. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that.. I would recommend this hotel to anyone..

Stayed here for a 1 night city break. The hotel is in a great location for everything 2 streets away from the infamous red light district and just off dam square. We stayed in the smoking rooms which are in a seperate building from the main hotel. The room was very clean and didnt smell like a smoking room. This hotel is ideal for all ages wanting to exlplore dam due to its central and convenient location. Will definately be staying here on our next visit to the fantastic amsterdam!
