Hello to potential readers,
Firstly, I took my sister to Amsterdam for her 18th but had to do it on an extreme shoe string budget. This Hotel, I found on another website (travelsupermarket.com) and was by far the cheapest around (which included breakfast). The reviews on that website said it was a decent hotel for the money.
Once booked I heard about tripadvisor and looked at the hotel to plan my routes... I was horrified by the reviews and was extremely nervous about staying here (so much so I had phone up another hotel just incase).
When we got to the hotel, the staff were polite and said hello, the room was clean and nothing was broken (Was very impressed). We had our own balcony (well shared with the room next to us). The Breakfast was basic but good, neither of us had any negative comments about it.
The only things which we wish the place had was a window which could be opened while locked as the room got very hot. Also the walls were quite thin so we could sometimes hear next door.
In all the hotel was better than adequate, and served its purpose as a base very well.More
