“Nice and simple”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Perfect location, really nice service, small rooms, fairly clean and nice beds. I would recommend this as a good budget alternative. The environments are extremely cosy, it is close to the nieces places, to museums and parks.

The hotel's location is very good, fast access to transport and river cruises, Heineken museum within 5 minutes walk. The staff and the receptionist are extremely helpful and friendly and they would do anything to please you. Breakfast is very good. I had a single room with a private bathroom in the corridor and a shared toilet, but after all, it is an old building, so I didn't mind that. I had a great experience and I am very happy with my stay there.

My tiny single room was part bathroom/part bedroom and quite worn down. There was a sink to the left in the room and a shower next to the bed. The toilet was in the corridor and shared with the whole floor. There was a disturbing smell from the in-room shower at first, which I pointed out. They "fixed" it by pouring chlorine bleach in the sewage which made the whole room smell like a swimming pool instead. Overall the room had poor ventilation, and only a sky window which I had to keep open the entire time. However, the hard-working owner was really friendly and nice and really seemed to be wanting to make every guest as happy as possible. The breakfast was nothing fancy, but enough to start the day with. I really wish I had more positive things to say about this hotel, but I will probably pay just a little extra next time to get higher standard. Also, keep in mind that old dutch houses (like the one the hotel is situated in) have very steep stairs, so elderly or disabled people should definitely go for something else.

Exceptional service, good choice of food for breakfast, clean and tidy and in a decent location.

We arrived late and the lad who works behind the desk was nothing but friendly and informative. He helped us throughout the holiday with various things and really seemed willing to go the extra mile. Previous reviewers complaining about 3% taxes- who cares when you're paying so little for the room anyway? Nit pickers.

Good location, plenty to do around the hotel and they have bikes for hire if you want to travel a bit further. As I mentioned; you get plenty of bang for your buck.

I will be staying here next time I travel to Amsterdam, I suggest you do too.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor (room 11) and it was a bit of a hike up the stairs, not advised if you ar...

I have never before written a negative review for a hotel, but I urge you strongly not to stay here, particularly if you are travelling with older people or children. It bears no resemblance whatsoever to the hotel's description of itself. These were the problems:
Unendurable noise and banging during the night which at times made the walls shake like there was an earthquake.
Terrible hygiene: faeces on the toilet floor in the morning; fragile shower and taps with no seals on the units; dust and grime on the floor.
A rude and petty manager. When I wanted to just to discuss the 3% surcharge for paying by credit card, he withdrew his previous offer of a one-night room upgrade. And do not believe him when he says that all hotels charge this. He will also slap on 8.5% in local taxes: contractually he is entitled to do this, but most Amsterdam hotels include this in the price.
The room furniture is like it has just been rescued from a junkyard, making the rooms ugly and inhospitable.
I am sorry to be so negative, but you need to know the truth before you book.

Friendly staff, clean room and toilet/shower. About a 20-30 minute walk from all main attractions in Amsterdam. Well worth it, nice breakfast and all at great price! Would defiantly stay here again. Don't listen to the few bad reviews it's great value for money!

We went last December, right after Xtmas and we choose this hotel for the price and location.
We found out a good price at Bo_king and the room said private shower. Be careful, its not a bathroom, its only a shower.
The first time you look to the stairs they're really scary...specially with bags and luggage.

In a 2min walk you have Heineken Experience, 5min walk get to Rijksmuseum and VanGogh, but to the city center its a 15min walk.
The breakfast was fair, but got all the essentials.
Suggestion: rent the hotel bikes for a free ride in the city, its the real way to live the Amesterdam life in the city

Room Tip: Try to have a room with private bathroom, and in the lowers floors.
