IT is more à hostel than a hotel. The room is so tiny, that just the double bed fit in it. Very clean though. Wouldn't book it anymore. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The metro is far away, at least the tram is closer by.

Bites all over my body and the one of my friend. The worst of all is that they never respond to our email and addressed this health issue. The rest, well... host was kind, restrooms no so bad... who cares after all that nightmare and disgusting experience! Stay away from this hotel!!!

It is located in a walking distance from the Tram station called "Artist". Our room was well cleaned but there were no attached bath rooms. Staff was so friendly and very helpful. As there are no lot of facilities available in the hotel, this would be an ideal place to drop all your stuff, enjoy your days in Amsterdam city...

We arrived expecting basic but clean. Unfortunately, the room we were given was bare, poorly decorated, broken window, tiny TV and a shower room shared between all 20+ rooms. We overlooked having to share on the promise of free wifi, however even this was a let down and we couldn't access it due to a dead link despite letting the...

This hotel is small and friendly, we stayed here for 3 nights while away for my boyfriends birthday. We were looking just for some where to sleep, shower and get ready as we knew that we wouldn't be in it often as Amsterdam has so many places to visit. Our room was on the top floor and there was no...

Cons - could only use one plug as once adapter was in it blocked the second...

Stayed here for 4 days in room 11 and it was exactly what we were after. From arriving and being greeted by the cat boy and nelly the owner our stay was very pleasant. Our room was clean and fresh and even though it was small it was what we had paid for and we would happily go back.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
