“Stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

Arrived early, lady on front desk said no room was available but that I could check in at 12. Returned at 12 only to be told to go away as room wasn't ready. When I eventually got into a room it was dirty, small and smelled very badly of smoke. Communal toilet and shower were clean but that is the only comlpiment I could pay this hotel. Window did not close properly and had a piece of wood to hold it open.
Hotel is on the edge of the red light district and is very loud until very late. A fact that is not helped by a window that won't close properly.
Do not stay here, spend a little extra and get somewhere clean and quiet.

Dear Mr. Connecticut,
Our stuff very appreciate your point of view. But you do not have to be so harsh only because you did not get a room earlier then it is suppose to be. It is clearly says on each and every web site that check in time at 14:00 (or 2:00 PM) and you may get the room earlier only if it is possible to do so.
Rooms are clean and cosy enough as it could be in a one star hotel.
Location is great and this is not an edge of a Red Light District, you saying not true Sir! This is the beginning. We are right infront of the Central Station of Amsterdam, definitely it can not be the edge.
And about your Review Title "Stay away!" - I think you should not write so incorrect reviews at all. The thing is that you insulted not only the workers of the hotel Internationaal, but also you insulted the hundreds of our fans. Check our Face Book, we have a lot of fans there.

The hotel is very conveniently located, near Central Station and City Center. Good price for a great location. Clean and basic room. Good for a short stay! I was in the second floor and there was a very strong smell. Hotel staff are welcoming and helpful .

Very central area of amsterdam just 3 minute away from central station and close to shops. Heaps of cheap eat around the hotel. Ear plug is provided since it just upstair of a pub and there are heaps pubs and coffee shop around. Staff are nice and friendly. Room is reasonably clean. Toilet has a bit of amsterdam smell but that is expected. Overall nice experience, ver amsterdam style.

GReat for a short nite stay.. It was in the Red Light District area and hence activities were on-going for almost every nite! Hotel owners are friendly & trustable.. Provided us maps upon checking in & always tending to our requests. However, do note that this hotel has NO elevators & hence if you were to book the attic room w en-suite bathroom, make sure that u r traveling w LIGHT baggages! :)

Myself and 2 friends stayed for an extended weekend, we struggled originally finding the hotel from the train station however this was due to the small, narrow streets! Once we arrived at the hotel the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful! The Stairs were definitely a struggle - but fun! like a Helter Skelter with a bit of carpet!
The Rooms were perfect for us - it was a clean bed - sink and wardrobe. (Anyone wanting luxury this is not for you).
The shared shower-room and toilet was always clean and tidy. Outside was noisy from mornings and late at the night - however we went to be noisy at night!
To sum up this review - Great Location - Great Staff - Simple but perfect Rooms - Great Pub downstairs! 5 Stars! Will definitely stay here again if we return.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 23 which is a triple bed room - Big size and great!
