“Charming and Cozy!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

My friend and i stayed in a shared-bathroom room for three marvelous nights. The beds were comfortable, the view overlooking a beautiful canal, and the location (right next to a tram stop) unbeatable. The bathroom was one floor down from us, but there was a toilet right outside our room. The breakfast was delicious (a cappuccino machine - mmm!) and the staff warm, accommodating, and considerate. Excellent value for such a great place!

Recently stayed here for a second time (after a 15 year interval). All was just as I remembered. Our room this time was #10 the attic room and it was perfect. There was a sink ensuite and a shared bathroom (though we never saw a soul) just outside the door. Generous breakfast included and also two "drinking excuses" in our room upon arrival (coupons for free drink at the bar downstairs on the corner). Within an easy walk to transport. Love the luggage lift! If you want to save some $ and see something local instead of America in Europe, do choose Prisenhof.

We wanted to have a budget city weekend break and first looked at hostels. But the reviews for what you find centrally located were generally poor. You pay slightly more here compared to a hostel but includes breakfast and given the great location makes it an ideal option. It ain't a 5 star hotel and doesn't in any way purport to be. But the price, location and excellent breakfast make it an ideal option.

Sorry, but whoever is complaining about this place is insane! You pay what 35 quid pp a night and it's an authentic town house in amsterdam with breakfast. Independent hotel and amazing for the money. Its just basic, clean and I am super fussy about hotels. It isn't a 5* boutique hotel, but if you want authentic amsterdam then go for it! Staff are pretty friendly, I think the other people must have just annoyed them that are complaining! Also free wifi now which is fab :)

Location was really good, not the most touristic area, but walking distance to centrum, tram stop and metrostation. The room was basic, but clean with nice views. We had shared bathroom but it was ok. The atmosphere was more like visiting someones home than staying at hostel/hotel. The breakfast was good, with two kinds of bread, eggs, different kinds of cold cuts, tomato, cereal, juice, coffee/tea etc.

If you are able to navigate about 5 steps up the door, 17 steps up to the first floor, another 15 steps up to the second floor (that's where our room was) , with about 15 kilos of luggage on one hand and the other holding on to the railing just in case your sideways step doesn't slide off the very narrow steps (I wear a size 36 shoes), congratulations - you've made it to your room! After 3 days, your challenge is going down, sadly this time, your luggage a tad heavier.

The room assigned to us hadnt been properly cleaned (used sheets), electric light switch came off in my hand, staff friendly but didn't help with luggage...but otherwise pleasant and well-located hotel but in need of refurbishing.
