This hotel just does not live up to the website - the double room, my wife and I stayed in, although
standard, was not even a fraction of what is shown in the website slideshow in terms of quality and size!
The room was very small and cramped - and the bathroom wasn't much bigger than a cubicle in a decent-sized toilet block - basically just wider than a toilet, and long enough to accomodate a toilet, sink and a shower area!
Worst of all, the heating was un-controlled (the owner confirmed this), so you have 2 pipes leading in to an enclosed radiator, pressed hard up against the bed, so I spent 2 nights sleeping above the duvet, to be able to sleep - not what you expect when you've paid 110 euros a night, which is a complete rip-off for the standard of hotel. Oh, and mysteriously, another 16 euros got added to the bill, compared to when I rung and reserved the room.
I know sometimes there are such things as VAT or whatever, but you should be given the
TOTAL price upon booking the room..
As mentioned in other reviews, the stairs are a challenge to climb - like being on a Swiss hiking
As for the staff - I found them to be very friendly and helpful - I have no complaints on that score.
The hotel itself is in a perfect location for exploring the city and right next to the No.9 tram line to the central station and Dam Square.
Amsterdam is a nice city, but quite pricey - if you want great value for money, and great hotels, go to Estonia or Latvia - very interesting places with far better hotels, better restaurants, and much, much cheaper prices! I especially recommend Hotel Metropole in Tallinn which I've stayed at 3 times.
Like I've said - don't be fooled by the website of the Hotel Atlanta,because reality is far,far different..
