“Single Room in Residential Area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

The directions to get to the hotel from the train station were easy to follow. You don't have to walk very far after getting off of the tram. I had reserved a single room with shared bathroom. If you opt for the shared bathroom, beware of the stairs! I had to carry all of my bags up 4 flights of very narrow, steep stairs. There was a desk, fan, sink and tv in the room. The room was a bit stuffy and the fan was extremely loud. Staff were friendly and the breakfast had yogurt, cereal, bread, apples, cheese, meats, and juice. It was nice being in a quiet residential area close to the museum district and large outdoor market.

Stayed July 2013, travelled solo

Although this hotel is not centrally located, it is easy to reach with public transport from the centre of Amsterdam. My room was tiny and basic but sunny and with a decent desk. There is a very steep staircase in the hotel. I liked it but those with any sort of physical problem might have more difficulty. The breakfast was average but the breakfast room was quite pleasant.

We booked 3 rooms in this hotel under the same booking. When we arrived we found the rooms were not near each other at all. One room was in a separate building to the other 2. This was very inconvenient to us as we had children in a separate building to us.
Also, we did not realise we would have to share a bathroom. To use shower and toilet, we had to go down the hallway. (this only occurred in 1 room).
Lots of stairs, very narrow too, which did not bother us too much, but if you were elderly or had lots of luggage this could be an issue.
We thought for the price we paid it was not worth staying at this hotel. I am sure we could have got better value for money elsewhere.

Amsterdam is an expensive city so finding somewhere reasonably priced to stay when you are just overnighting and probably not in your room much is difficult. At 100 Euro for a single bed room with bathroom and breakfast, by Amsterdam standards this is fairly cheap. So I guess you get what you pay for. But it was clean and in a lovely upmarket suburban location close to the centre of town. It is very quiet and the breakfast area is really nice. So as long as you don't have great expectations and don't require a double bed if you are going as a single, this place is OK. And the staff are nice.

very calm and peaceful-room large and very comfortable-clean- (except few noises in the pipes of the bah room between 7 and 10 at night but no real nuisance if you close the door of the bath room)- people at the desk very efficient and nice, especially the lady at the breakfeast who is so kind-By the way brekfeast is very good (ask for scrambled eggs)-- hotel well located (close to the Ryks and Van gogh museums (even if this late one is provisorely transfered to the Hermitage) and few meters to tramways 16 and 24 which get you to the city in 10 minutes or walk 8 minutes to the museum square and get tram 5 to dam station.-Beware of the stairs: the hotel is in an ancient house with extremely steep stairs...better not to have heavy and large luggage!
If you drive, drop your luggage at the hotel, then go to the P+R parking at the olympisch stadium, (only 8 E/day + free tickets for go and back to the city by tram (10 minutes to the hotel); if you park in front of the hotel it's 4 E/hour !!!!)
Recommandation : Cafe Loetje (50 meters from the hotel) is gorgeous (all dishes are extra and beef is super extra). For dinner, don't go there before 9 at night in order to get a table (impossible before).

"Hotel" seems to be an exaggeration for this establishment. "Hostel" would be more accurate. Upon entering the "hotel" the first thing that you see is a washing machine, & the smell of washiing powder is overwhelming!!"Hotel" consists of four townhouses, & our's (Room 20) was three doors down. There are 19 (very steep) stairs to the room, loose handrail, but the room itself was clean. We stayed for three nights & the shower was broken for two days!! Breakfast was good, staff helpful, but "Hotel" is really stretching it........ You would need to be fit to ascend the steps to your room, & definitely sober!

Room Tip: Stay sober if you want to reach your bed in one piece!!. Mind the bannister as well as the stairs
