I stayed here again, and I will always find an excuse to stay here, because I love Amsterdam, and TGB is at the heart of the city. Everything you might enjoy is steps away from the door somwhen you feel the need for locomotion, younwon't have to go far.
The beds are comfortable, you can choose from en suite bath, in-room shower, or shared facilities. If you choose shared they are never far away. And always clean. Rooms are spacious and in this day and age, that is a god send ... room to walk around, a chair or two with room to extend your legs. What amazing little benefits we look for now in this age of minuscule rooms.
There is a breakfast included, and there is a Starbucks two minutes walk away for that coffee fix in the early morning.
Did I mention TGB is a gay hotel? Oh well. It is. But somaffordable. And worth the money ... but don't bring really big bags ... the stairs, as everywhere In Amsterdam, are very steep and narrow.
And I will return ... it is so close to everything!
