This hotel was nice.. best area to stay in in Amsterdam. i paid 100 euros a night without breafast... room with toilet. staircases narrow. VERY CLEAN...thin mattresses. Iguess for a main city in europe it might be considered inexpensive compared to the other hotels. but i think dropping it 20 euro or have specials would be good!! besides that i recommend to ages up to 45 50

My partner and I just got back from Amsterdam and we can't stop reflecting on how wonderful The Backstage Hotel is. The staff were incredibly helpful, friendly, and remarkably cool. With live music downstairs very fitting with the musical theme of the hotel, this haven made for an incredible stay. The decor was cool, creative, and very rock'n roll. We highly recommend choosing this hotel, and guarantee a comfortable stay, but also, an experience! P.S (Very close to... well, everything worth seeing).

Room Tip: The top double rooms may be a bit of a climb but they have a great view of the canals.

Stayed here on a break with my partner, not in the centre but just a short walk or bus away, found the staff to be very helpful and the hotel to be clean and tidy overall. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice relaxing time as well as those who want to party in the bar downstairs............

Just what I was looking for as a solo traveller - stayed in the single room at the front, breakfast was good, reasonable rates & good location. Near to the best music venues and trams, buses etc - coffeeshop round the corner. A little noisy from fellow guests in the early hours but hey. . .you're in Amsterdam!

This hotel is definitely what it promises - a very cool rock-style interior makes this place quite unique.
Pros:
- The breakfast is quite nice and well worth the 6.50 € - and serving times are flexible!
- The rooms are clean, and creatively decorated, true to the rock-theme.
- staff is friendly and very helpful
- Amazing liquorice free for consumption in the reception (it's the little things that count)

Cons:
- "The walls on this hotel are paper-thin" - In your bed, you can clearly hear any sound coming from the hallway (and vice-versa). But you survive, if people are generally well behaved, which they were.
- The strong emphasis on music in the hotel decor, makes it disappointing to discover that the restaurant/bar soundtrack is constantly based on the same boring pop radio station. I don't mind pop, but one would at least expect a very conscious and personal choice of musical backdrop in such a place - e.g. playlists chosen personally by the probably music-savvy hotel staff.
- It's a shame that the well-equipped bar is closing so late - this might be solved by better soundproofing, so the 1st floor rooms are not bothered by a late running bar.

All in all a very comfy and extraordinary hotel experience - definitely recommendable! The cons above are just suggestions for improvement of an already nice experience.
