This hotel is walking distance to absolutely everything: Train station, Bar/Restaurant, Red light district, Anne Frank House, Dam Square ect.
The Hotel itself was mediocre. The rooms are small (most hotel in Europe are) but my BF is 6.1ft tall and he was unable to really fit in the bathroom. I requested a private bathroom (private toilet and shower) in our room and it cost $416US dollars for 3 nights with free Wi-Fi. It’s pricy for what you get at this hotel but the privet bathroom was a must have on my list!
My room was on the 3rd floor with 1 window facing the ally. It had 3 single beds and no Air Conditioner/ fan. Since the weather was cool, we slept with the window open and the temperature in the room was fine but at night, you can hear people having a conversation as if they were right next to the window.
I did not see rats nor bed bugs! They cleaned our room every day at 11am and gave us clean towels and made the bed (all 3 of them). Now the big down fall for me were the killer narrow stairs. I had a 50lb luggage and it is completely dangerous to go up and down the stairs. They are completely narrow!
The next time I visit Amsterdam, I would stay in Jordaan. It is also walking distance to everything even from this hotel, its just not in the center.
I would recommend this place it you’re just going for a couple of days and if it were a reasonable price. I would completely recommend to request a private bathroom when you book the room!
Place to check out (walking Distance): St. James’s Gate Irish Pub, Moulin Rouge (35euro for entrance and 3 drinks), Come back (restaurant), Roem Eetcafe (Bar)
