I always travel to amsterdam and stay in the hotel and i stayed in this hotel before few year back due to that my boss booked me in this hotel, so i have no option then to stay here, and it also happens last week, that i asked my boss to book me a hotel and he booked me this hotel because the hotel was nearby his home and he have the number of this hotel.
to cut the story short, i was arriving after work around 6pm and i was so tired because i fly really early in the morning from germany and go straight to work and i expected that the reception will give me the key and i took a long nap, but what happen is when i arrived, this lady have my reservation but hesitate to give me the room due to that i need to pay the room immediately, i was so surprise because my boss told me that he already booked the room and pay with his credit card and i show her the email and she also have my reservation with my boss name and his credit card credential. this lady was so rude and she talked to me with patronising voice and i just give up, i said i'll pay with my credit card, i gave her my amex and she said those credit card will be card extra, i gave her my visa card, she said also those with extra, we only accept EC card that don't cost extra. I am so frustrated and then she called the owner and i talked to the owner, i said to him that you have the reservation with my boss credit card and if i didn't show up, you will charge his credit card as well, so what is the problem?? and he understand my logic and he want to talked to the reception lady, and they talked for almost 5 minutes while i am waiting impatiently and i finally lost my tamper and sound her, give me the key or i leave. and she give me they and repeated the same instructions with patronising voice and want me to sign the paper that like an agreement that i won't smoke in the room, if i smoke they will charge me 500 euro or something. i just signed and and go to my room.
she gave me a third floor room, remember that i stayed in this hotel before few year back, and i knew that have terrible stair which almost killed my friends when we carried his big luggage to the second floor, the stair is narrow and if you plan to have a big luggage to carry to your room, forget it, don't kill your self in the process.
so i got into my single room that cost my boss 102 euro per night, it was so small, the bed is terrible, it sucked your body and it didn't even stay flat, it move because of uneven mattress.
the toilet is so so small and what make it suck even more the switch between cold and hot didn't work properly, it defaulted to the hot water, really hot so i ended up shower with a glass from the wash table/basin. i just don't have the mood to complain to that rude lady. so i just sucked it up.
in the morning during the breakfast, no clean coffee glass on the table, and there is another lady and the man manning the room, but they just play dumb and didn't offer any coffee glass or anything, so i just took a normal juice glass and fill it with coffee and this breakfast speed is just pathetic, even the mr bed or highway hotel is better that this. to make it worst i was using the paper bottle and the lid is loose and it pour all into my cold boiled egg. i just had enough and leave immediately after that.
never and never again. just no good thing can be told for this hotel, trust me, i am not really picky person and i stay in the bad hotel before but this is just terrible, plain terrible.
