Having just returned from 4 nights at the Tourist Inn I am in 2 minds about the rating for this hotel. The hotel is basically quite bad….but it is in such an amazing city and so well located that for the price you pay it was fine!
We were given a triple room in the “Outhouse” which was just tiny – there was a bunk-bed and a single bed tucked up in a little attic accessed by a kind of ladder. We managed it for one night but after that asked to be moved (there was no sink in the room as described when booked). The hotel staff kindly moved us to another triple room on the top floor of the Outhouse and this room was better – it at least had a sink and a window. The safe did not work, and despite reporting it to reception on 4 occasions and being informed that the issue would be resolved, we did not have a functioning safe at any point during the stay. The shared shower and toilet facilities were fine and cleaned daily.
Breakfast was pretty good – bread, cheese, ham, salami as well as yoghurts and juice. On our last morning we didn’t go down to breakfast until 9.30am and by the time we went to get food they had run out of bread and were down to the last 2 slices of cheese. The lady preparing the breakfast said that there was no more food to replenish it. This seems a bit crazy when breakfast is advertised as being served until 10am. Still, a nice breakfast if you get there early.
I truly loved Amsterdam and had so much fun. Because of our experiences and the location of the hotel, I would stay at the Tourist Inn again if I could not find a better deal. You have to remember that accommodation is at a premium in the City so the rate is reasonable. Watch the stairs though…
