There is nothing fancy about this hotel. It has a great location along the canal and right in the middle of the Red Light District. Great pub right next door. You can walk to Central Station from the hotel. Room was cheap, but that's expected from the price.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Location of the hotel is perfect - 500m from Amsterdam Centraal, nearly all attractions and museums are within walking distance.
Rooms are way too small and not clean, beds are uncomfortable. We had to change the room because of sickening smell of Chlorine. The new room had Mold in the bathroom. They don't clean during vacation.
Breakfast is very simple, but acceptable.
Wifi doesn't work in the rooms.

This is not a hotel to stay... definitely not with family. Having read the reviews, I was prepared for the worst and the worst happened. I was given a 'double' room with two separate bed (cots!) arranged in a 6 feet by 20 feet room. Can you imagine this? Two small beds placed length-wise touching the wall of the room (corridor!)... so you have two beds touching not by the side but from the head!!! Dirty linen and bathroom. On making repeated requests, the dead-face guy sitting in the reception moved me to another room for that night... here at least we had one double bed. Room was small, no towel given, bathroom was awful. The second day we were asked to go back to the original room. We protested. Didn't help. We had made up our mind to leave the hotel and get another one and forget about the money paid. Then the owners came. From their language I realized they were Indians. I am also from India. Now I requested. After a lot of back and forth, they gave me a room in the basement. The room was suffocating, humid and smelly. We somehow managed to sleep the night and ran the hell out of there the next morning.
I warn you all NOT to stay at this hotel. There are many options in the Red Light District. Choose any other, but not this. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in room one. Window in room was smashed and was fixed with selo tape! Viwe of smoking area in court yard out of our window. 2sets of very steep steps to get to room. Room smelt of damp. Room freezing cold and very noisy due to smashed window and also there is a church at the back that rings its bells 4 times an hour. Hardly slept and could not wait to leave this hotel. Only positive was a good central location.
