The primary pro of Agora Hotel is its location - easy walk from Centraal Station and near tram line. Breakfast was included in the price but it was very standard...and when paying as much as we did over the New Year holiday, I would have expected more. Our room was really small and needed some general updating (spots on the ceiling, dirty carpet in places, etc.)
If you stay there on a weekend day, be very aware that there is a disco directly next door and they do not stop the music until 4-5 am. It's impossible to sleep...also the outside window does not close completely so you cannot block any noise that way, either.
We asked for a wake up call but did not receive one thus making us a bit late getting started in the morning. It would have been a nice gesture for the hotel to offer to call us a cab or pay for a tram ride to Centraal Station but all we got was a "sorry."
It's not a bad hotel but it's just not what we expected. If you're looking for budget and dont plan on sleeping, then this will work for you.
