Euphemia Hotel
Ranked #269 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Euphemia is a very basic hotel, 15 min on foot from the city centre. It is not cheap at all but comparing with other hotels in the city, its not the worst. We took a double-room with private bathroom on the third floor of the building. The room was a bit small, but the bed was very confortable and the heating works well. Everything seems clean though a bit old. The stairs to get to the rooms were awful,long and sharpy stairs with very small steps. No lift. Breakfast is not incluided in the price. Really anoying, the morning you have to check-out, a staff knocks your door at 9 a.m. and OPENS THE DOOR, to advice you that in one hour you need to be out of the room!!! Despite that, not bad experience.

I book this hostel really quickly and I did not have great expectations. The place is nice , staff were friendly and location is good. Rooms are spacious and the price is decent. Really nice coffees close by and very near to different attractions.Breakfast is a bit overrated.

Stayed here on a university trip to Amsterdam and our expectations were not high at all, however we were all pleasently surprised when we arrived, staff were all very friendly! Stayed on the 3rd floor, stairs are a nightmare, ridiculously steep and no lift, you get a key card to let you into the room, Room was spacious, 3 single beds, bright, clean, towels provided, and unsuite was very clean. There was a few problems with the pressure and temperature of the shower but we got our hair washed none the less. Breakfast is served in the morning, very basic, cereal, rice cakes, toast, and coffee, tea, and apple juice, but this did the job! Tram line right outside, close to centre! If your not fussed on luxery its perfect!

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms have unsuite, communal toilets and showers also on each floor.

Stayed here for three days in march 2012, paid quite a bit for this hostel due to the fact that I needed somewhere decent to stay, biggest mistake of my trip, not only did we pay upfront for the room we were told on arrival that there was no smoking however we smoked in the room and were forced to pay a 100 euro fine plus when we handed in our room keys they refused to refund the 20 euro for these stating that this would also contribute to us smoking in the room, fair enough we broke the rules but 120 euro when absolutely nothing was destroyed?? extortionate!! to add insult to injury we left the hostel for one day and returned to stay in a more expensive private room WHICH WE HAD ALREADY PAID FOR but were informed by staff that we had to pay a FURTHER 100 EURO if we wanted to stay in this hostel, refused and asked for a refund but this was not an option as apparently we were canceling the room, we were being forced to cancel due to the fact we did not have the money to pay and we were refused a refund for canceling. ABSOLUTE JOKE WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL TO ANYONE WHO WANTS SOMEWHERE NICE TO STAY!

I visited this hotel with my girlfriend on an organised trip. We were initially sceptical because of the mixed reviews on here. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is basic, but the rooms, en suite and communal areas were very clean.

The rooms we stayed in contained three single beds, which were comfortable and fresh towels were in the cupboard (no additional cost as previously stated). The breakfast was basic and self service - a choice of cereals, toast, rice crackers, fresh tea/coffee and fruit juices. Internet was available in the reception area, but wifi was free throughout the hotel (again, not just on the ground floor as previously stated).

Rooms were accessible using swipe cards, which also controlled access to the hotel entrance. We did not experience any excessive noise problems from other guests. Close to supermarket and tram lines, very central location. Vending machine in lobby sells tins of beer for E1,5 or softdrinks.

Overall very satisfied with our stay and would reccommend to friends. Nothing fancy, but a good base.

+ Bedroom was very clean, with a big sink area and mirror which was handy
+ Wifi a big plus
+ Good location and easy to find (right by the Heineken brewery). Could walk to museumplein, red light district, etc. (would recommend a tram for the train station though!)
+ Hostel seemed quite secure and wasn't too loud

- Rooms were tiny, when sharing with people you don't know it seemed to really lack personal space.
- Seemed like we paid hotel prices for a bog standard hostel. We did book late, so just try to book early and you'll get something in Amsterdam that's much better for the same price. (We were paying 25 each per night)
-Not enough showers! One per floor?! Waited 30 mins one morning, annoying when you want to just get out and explore.

So if you've made a booking here don't worry, you'll enjoy Amsterdam and there's nothing terrible about the hostel, if you're looking to book now I'd recommend shopping around online, I've stayed in several better places in Amsterdam

Mattress was filthy! Blood on it and pee stains. Otherwise, Good service, good location. Note: for people who may have difficulties - REALLY steep stairs, no elevator, like most places in Amsterdam.
