“So bad!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Avoid this Hotel Blyss as much as you can. Only the location is good: non-professional service, uncomfortable bed, small room, lots of noise, poor cleanliness... This hotel requires a huge sense of humour ;)

Room Tip: Find another hotel.

There was two receptionists that were very nice and friendly one was from Romania, that was great but to the rooms, we stayed in a double room, the carpet had bits of the ceiling after it had been cleaned the window would not stay open the shower room had mold in the corner and one of the so called fresh bed sheet had what looked like Doritos dust so did the cleaner have a munch? The decor was ok but had the same theme throughout the hotel.
The power went off 3 times but was restored quickly by the beutiful Romanian receptionist. We stayed in room 202
I wouldn't say avoid this hotel but use it to sleep and that's it, it is close to one of the liveliest squares.

''the worst hotel''.. I have even seen in my life.. advising you to stay away! Had a reservation in advance but room was given from the basement floor! Rooms were extremely small and bathroom was not pleasant either. Requested for change, the requisition was denied. Chinese guy at reception seems does not understand english, looks as blanck! barely gives information!! Room was cold, cold air comes through the windows.. (had to cover my self with the bathroom towels during my sleep).. Ohh! they require you to pay all room charges as cash! otherwise they apply 5% surcharge. Worst place to pick up!! FYI..

Room Tip: Saty away from this hotel !!

Booked this hotel as a British Airways package, and pretty surprised they partner with such a terrible hotel. Where do I start? Dirty and old sheets, sink falling off wall, windows that open onto walls, scary and dangerous security were all features of my stay at Hotel Blyss. Even the name is a big disappointment, because there is no bliss there. If you are a backpacker and looking for a cheap crash pad bed in Amsterdam then fine but this hotel is certainly not up to the quality I would expect with booking a holiday through British Airways.

Room Tip: If you must stay there, avoid the "tower" rooms which are not much more than a hovel.

The hotel is in a beautiful old period building and the lobby is really pretty. Generally the place is clean but it could do with modernising. The staff aren't the friendliest in reception and the breakfast is well below standard. Easy walk into town

where to start with hotel blyss??

On arrival we were greeted with open arms very nice young asian girl working at reception great smile great manner.
We were very early as there is 2pm check in we arrived at 10am and thanks to the help of this young lady she informed us she could check in early.

So off we went very happy that we werent stuck roaming the streets of amsterdam with our luggage.......until we entered our room,the walls were dirty door was smashed at the back fire escape plan trown on the floor bed linen dirty....to clarify how dirty the room was i wore some white socks while walking on the floor and the bottom was completely black.

The cleaner does do a good job doh she came to us everyday with fresh towels and did give the room a going over but lets face a fact here she hasnt got much to work with this place needs a serious updating.

All in doh a lick of paint some new curtains,doors and carpets and it would be worth the 450euros for 4 nights..........

the location is great not to far of a walk to the main tourist areas

The staff are very pleasant(always say hello and goodbye)

On leaving the hotel the atmosphere was not great doh it was as if they were in a rush to get rid of us(the brazilian or young asian were not on duty)

keep the staff you have here well the 2 mentioned anyway

Due to the above i would not reccomend staying here

And if you do use the local coffee shop as much as possible and you wont notice the dirt
