“Perfect for exploring”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I visited the Sharm Hotel with my fiance for a weekend city break and personally thought it was excellent value. We were slightly caught out arriving, we had a nightmare travel due to the french air strike and the journey to Amsterdam was not pleasant although this was no fault of the hotel. We arrived in the middle of the night ( a lot later than expected ) but none the less the owner stayed up to greet us with a warm welcome.

The only thing that thew me when arriving was we were asked for payment, which was a little confusing as we thought we had paid online already! so be careful of that.

The rooms are small and very basic, but to me a city break is when you are out exploring! This was literally some where to sleep and wash! The room was cleaned daily and there was no noise despite being right outside of reception.

The hotel stairs are a fitness challenge, but I think this is just typical of the building styles here,I wouldn't recommend for anyone who inst easily mobile!

If your looking for luxury this is not for you, just a perfect place to rest

The location of the hotel is brilliant, just a few minutes from Dam Square so everything is on your door step, many hotels for Amsterdam require tram journeys so this was brilliant.

Overall for the location it could not be better value for money, if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep and get ready and spend your time out exploring what more could you want?

There were two gentleman that I saw whom worked there, both lovely and polite!

If I was to return to Amsterdam, I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here as backpackers, and we did not expect much, but the man was lovely and am absolute stand out of our trip! As a result we will always remember our great time in Amsterdam because of his friendly and helpful service. We will never forget him! The rooms were warm and sunny and clean. Just perfect!

I stayed here only for a night. The single room is very very small (only the space for the bed and a little table), but just to sleep it was enough. The hotel is in the really centre, so it is perfect for this point of view. My room was on the back so I didn't percieve much noise, apart from when the other gests went in their rooms. The only bad thing was that the pillow smelt of smoke. Very cheap, so good value for the money.

We stayed at the Sharm hotel and while the rooms are small, it's all about the location. It's within easy walking distance to most locations including Ann Franks house, which is only a few minutes walk away.

As others have said (and is true with many buildings in this area) there's approximately 37 stairs before you reach reception and then there's another two levels of rooms above.

The owner was very pleasant and took both of our cases up by himself in one go! He could not do enough for us including providing us maps and ideas for what we could do that day.

The wifi internet reaches all of the rooms well and the bathrooms are hot. A perfect hotel for those who will spend most of their time out instead of lazing in the hotel, exploring this fantastic city!

We stayed only for one night. The staff was very helpful and friendly, they explained everything to us about the attractions and gave us a little map too with the hotel's address, just in case after a few drinks we got lost..that's just what we needed ha! We required an adaptor and a hairdryer and they had both, which was great! Wifi work perfectly well! The room was small, but cosy and the hotel is only a 5 min walk from Dam square! I would definitely stay again!!!
