Stayed here last weekend, saturday-tuesday. We didn't have very high hopes for this place as it was super cheap and some of the reviews on here weren't good but we were very pleasantly surprised!
The hotel itself is on Daam Street which is as you may guess right off dam square. It is the perfect location !! We walked from centraal station and it took us maybe 10 minutes.
We booked a double room en suite in the smoking section. The receptionist lead us to a separate entrance (4 doors down or so) into the smoking building. Our room was very basic but more than we were expecting. Clean, tidy and a little tv with a few good channels. It was comedy centrals family guy weekend so that suited us just perfectly! The other obvious benefit was that our room was indeed a smoking room which is becoming very hard to find in central amsterdam especially for this great price! We also had asked for a quiet room and this was the case when we went to bed. Brilliant sleep every night.
The location really did seal the deal for us though and when we go back we will definitely be returning to this hotel!
There are hairdryers at reception, you just ask and can borrow them. The hotel sells some things like adapters and tooth paste etc but these are all cheaper at the surrounding supermarkets.
Must try chipsy kings chips with garlic mayo and you see a lot of places selling pizza but the New Yorker pizza downstairs from the hotel is the best!
