“Friendly and convenient location but very basic for the price paid”

King Hotel is a very basic hotel with the bare essentials for a central stay to Leidsplein.

Service was fairly friendly and the receptionist went out of her way to accommodate an early check in. Arrived at this hotel at 11am and they juggled the rooms about to let us check in at 11.45am. Usual check in time is 3pm.

The room size is average while the on suite bathroom is tiny! The double room is actually made up of two single beds, which is a bit of an irritation.

The bathroom did not have a bathmat and when I enquired about this, I was given a regular towel to use as a bathmat as they don't have bathmats.

You have to pay a small deposit for the keys of the room, which is returned to you upon check out.

I wouldn't stay here again as the hotel was too expensive for the basic amenities provided, having said that the location is good.

Me and my sis have booked a weekend package at the King Hotel and we accepted online unrefundable money . It was the worse think when we saw our room a small place not even for two person some filthy sheets on a small bed a tiny window facing some walls awfull bathroom . I understood why you could leave your bags downstairs for 6 euros or something. You have no space even for yourself! The receptionist lady kept saying : What are you expecting for a 2 stars hotel ?! What is wrong with the room ?
There are good things about the place also . As we start complainig and crying there the lady changed our room with a river view room. What a change ! Finely a decent place a douple room and.. we had a wardrobe normal bed small but clean bathroom a bit noisy tho but we didnt mind really. The location is excellent a few minutes walk to the centre .
Hope I could help. Good LUCK!

We had previously stayed in a hotel without an en suite so I was chuffed when we reached the King Hotel. It was in a great location, easy to find and close to Leidseplein. Room was comfortable enough but the view was terrible, could see straight into other rooms! Staff were friendly and the breakfast was sufficient. Would go back.

Just visited Amsterdam with a few friends, all same age couples. King hotel was superb for the value and the service we received. Staff was exception with their efficient service, made our stay most wonderful. We all will be back soon to enjoy more of the same fun.

Im just back from staying at this hotel. I am so glad i wasn't put off by some of the rubbish reviews on here. It is a fantastic hotel ok rooms were small but it is Amsterdam and all houses are small. Very clean, beds changed everyday and fresh towels left. Very good location just off ledseplein square. Room 11 we stayed in, very quiet room on 3rd floor. Staff were friendly, let us check-in 3 hrs early. We were also able to leave our luggage in the hotel on the last day until we left for the airport for 3 euros. Very good hotel, would recommend and its cheaper compared to most.

Very small and old room, paid extra for canal view, was not worth it. Breakfast was the worst i had have experienced.
