  • Group of friends

    Nothing in particular

    The overall impression is poor as a result of high price for what you get, a small dirty room with shared bathroom (which were renovated). Breakfast is a joke as they serve it from 9 AM to 10 AM only.

  • Single

    good breakfast, kind staff, vivid location

    bit noisy

  • Couple

    Location is of course great! Our room was on the 3rd floor, facing inner garden, so the noise from the street didn't disturb us. Nice that breakfast is included in the price..

    It is a 1 star hoste and it speaks for itself.. One can hear everything that is happening outside the room, all the small noises.. The bathroom is very small with shower and toalett at the same place..

  • Single

    Stayed for two nights, rooms comfortable and clean. Great english breakfast and friendly staff. Brilliant location.

  • Couple

    Chose this hotel if you want to be in the heart of the old town or in the middle of the party from Red District. I love it and I look forward to stay there again. Good location - in a middle of the Red District, 5’walking from the Dam Square and 10’ walking from the Central (train) Station, good value for the money (for Amsterdam city). The staff was exceptionally helpful, friendly and welcoming (special thanks to Beth! She changed my reservation and she sent me useful information about location) My room was on the 3th floor - beautiful, very quiet and romantic attic with staircase and wooden pillars inside and it had a door to the roof (beautiful view). Rooms from the front can be noisy because they are above one of the most crowded area in town. Excellent breakfast, the bar is open 24 hours/day, clean room, bathroom and sheets. They changed the towels every day.

  • Group of friends

    The stafff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel bar is open 24hrs a day so you can come and go as you like. Good location in the heart of the red light district, close to the Damrak, Chinatown etc.

    Best to stay elsewhere if you are a light sleeper as the hotel is in an area where its is busy all day & all night. No option of ensuite room.

  • Group of friends

    Very good hotel. A successful arrangement, all nearby. Tasty breakfasts.

  • Group of friends

    The location was great if the Red Light District is where you want to be and I felt safe leaving my luggage and valuables with the staff for a few hours after checking out of the hotel.

    It was noisy which was expected and the decor and comfort wasn't the best which was also assumed from a 1 star hotel.

  • Couple

    The breakfast was great.

    Very loud, staying on the first floor. Not at all good for a family holiday, but great for a few nights of mayhem in Amsterdam.

  • Single

    Perfect location

    Stairs too steep and there wasn't wifi in my room

  • Couple

    location is inside the red light district and with many diffrent worldwide resturants around and close to the train station.

    No TV no Telephone in the room, the wifi signal is not good and the price is very expensive

  • Family with children

    Good central location. Was able to drop off bags before check in time which was great. My jacket was taken care of when I left it after me the first day. My car keys and other keys were in the jacket. Phew! Really grateful for that.

    Breakfast was served up to 10 am. Arrived about 9.45. The food was a bit cold but otherwise ok.

  • Single

    It was a small staff but well run Hotel. I was on the top floor which kept me away from the noise below. My room (#33) was quite large for Amsterdam and for the price. Could do yoga and self defense tecniques. Toilets and bath were clean. Towells and linen were clean. Plenty to eat for breakfast. They offer change for large bills if you need change! They take Credit Cards also.

    They have a sports bar open 24/7 which was quite allright as I was on the top floor. Breakfast is bacon and eggs which was good but if you are prone to vegetarianism you have to eat toast, fruit, orange juice, tea, coffee....

  • Single

    I stay at this hotel whenever I visit Amsterdam. You can't beat it for value for money and location (right in the old centre). The hotel has recently introduced the full English breakfast (included in room price, buffet service - eat as much as you like, bacon, sausages, scrambled or fried eggs, beans, mushrooms: fantastic!). 24-Hour bar and (big screen) Sky tv are a real plus. The staff are brilliant (and, in some cases, ever so slightly crazy!!) - very friendly, and great to sit in the bar with them late into the night chatting and swapping jokes. I look forward to seeing them as much as the city itself!

  • Group of friends

    The Breakfasts, although it opened just for an hour, the receptionist/waitress, she helped us finding everything we needed. Finally, the location was sublime, in the same center of the Red Light district. The wireless conection worked even at the top floor, which is actually very useful.

    They just changed the towels everyday, we didn't have our bathroom cleaned in the four days we stayed, but I find it more than ok for the price we payed!
