“Amazing service”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Nadia hotel is all about location and incredible service. Don't be put off by the steep stairs as there is always someone to help with the luggage. The rooms are clean and characterful. We loved the huge windows looking over the canals and the sun streaming in. In all our travels we have never experienced such friendly service...nothing was too much trouble! We loved our stay at the Nadia and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Paul and Faye Jackson

Room Tip: We asked for a room overlooking the canal and we certainly got one!!!

First time staying with this hotel that was suggested by a travel agency in Florida. The experience started apon arrival. When greeted by the hotel staff we found our selves in good hands. Our rooms were clean, tidy and smelled fresh with some fresh cut flowers. They took a special interest in the kids always asking how their day was. When asked for recommendations for dining they never failed.The continental breakfast was of top quality and the hotel location was near the center of the tourist hub within walking distance to everything. We had the best stay at this hotel and would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony as not all rooms have one

We have just stayed at the Nadia for the second time and were expecting, and got, a very small room as per the last visit. If you are travelling with a large suitcase then this is not the place for you as even finding somewhere to store 2 small 'hand luggage only' cases was something of a challenge. The bathroom was even tinier than the last time and again rather challenging! The loo was directly opposite the door which opened almost onto the end of the bed; the towels were hung on the back of the door so that the knees of anyone seated on the loo pushed the door open! (tip - move the towels into the bedroom and you can close the door!) The hand basin was immediately next to the loo and the shower was squeezed in at the end with no shower tray, just a drain in the centre of the floor. Lack of space meant the shower curtain had to be pulled over the top of the basin with the result that water went everywhere and soaked the entire floor.
Room size apart this hotel is so central that it is worth staying here if you are on a short break - opposite Anne Frank's House, on the edge of the beautiful Jordaan area, within 10 mins walk of Dam Square and the tourist hotspots and 20 mins walk from Central Station - it really can't be beaten for the price.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast is very good.
Be aware that like many old Amsterdam hotels the entrance is on the street and once the door is buzzed open for you you are faced with an incredibly steep staircase up to reception. Leave your luggage at the bottom and a member of staff will carry it up for you. Once you reach the dizzy heights of reception you will be rewarded with a very welcome cold drink of your choice!!
All in all the pros outweigh the cons if you are looking for a good budget hotel in the very centre of the city.

On arrival at the hotel the first thing that came as quite a big shock was the steep steep steeep stairs! If you have any form of walking difficulties or are not of a fit nature then this hotel is not for you (even more so if your room is not on the first floor). Once we had climbed the ridiculously steep stairs and got to reception, we checked in and were offered a free welcome drink which was lovely and well deserved after climbing the stairs! The hotel staff then offered to take our suitcase to our room. The room was very shabby, the carper worn and the bed was very hard and the pillows were a joke. The window was very old which is understandable in such an old building however the street noise was very annoying and kept me awake alot! The hotel has a great location and is very near the Anne Frank house if this is a point of interest for you. In general the hotel was very 'cosy' but rooms very shabby.

The nadia is a brilliant location in the centre of Amsterdam, all the main tourists attractions are within a ten minute walk and boat and tram stops just round the corner. I stayed in a room with balcony which is noiser than without but it actually wasnt that noisy at all. You get a map and a free drink on arrival which is nice touch and flowere in the room. There is also a fridge un the rooms which is really good. I had a single room and found this an adequate size for one with ensuite and a tv you can also borrow a hairdryer from the reception.
A good stay at the hotel and a beautiful city.

Room Tip: Definately get a balcony if its in the summer, is nice to sit out in the morning after breakfast

Hotel Nadia is centrally located for visiting all the sites either on foot or by tram. The last thing I saw at night and the first thing I saw in the morning from my room were the canal and the church steeple. The breakfast room has the same fantastic view. The room is full of shelves, hooks, and cupboards so the small space was well used. The stairs are steep, but the friendly staff carried all our luggage up and down. The price is incredible considering the hotel's central location. Hotel Nadia has atmosphere - you know you're in Amsterdam and not at any hotel back home. I will stay at this hotel again next time I'm in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a canal view. I was happy with no balcony so don't feel you have to have one...

It's in a great location - near the Anne Frank house and Dam Square, and just 2 minutes from a tram/bus stop. The staff is very friendly and helpful and always willing to carry your luggage to your room. The rooms are small and the stairs are very steep, but we don't go to Amsterdam to stay in our room. The street noise at first seems very loud, but always lulls me right to sleep(almost comforting). The Nadia is very clean and the provided breakfast is very tasty and healthy. We normally stay for two weeks because the price is so affordable. There is a fine neighborhood bar at the west end of the block (directly across from the tram stop) called the Cafe Kalkhoven (ask for Richard, Dave or Leo). Great atmosphere and people very enjoyable. There is laundry facilities within walking distance at the North church and market square. Plent of food and drink while waiting on the machines, and an awesome bakery across the street (best ham and cheese croissant ever).
