“Great Value, Well Worth the Money”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This hotel boasts very clean rooms which was initially my main concern. The en-suite was also very nice and clean and came with a powerful shower. The staff are also very friendly and are always willing to assist. The location could also not really be improved. Well worth the money.

We booked here as a last resort as everywhere else in amsterdam was booked out. I was already feeling like it was overpriced before we got there. We booked a double room for three nights with a shared bathroom it was €130 a night.

When we arrived the room was so tiny we had to stack our carry on sized bags on top of each other or we couldn't open or close our door.
The bed was a king single NOT a double and was too small for the two of us. The floor was slimy and needed to be cleaned, the shared bathroom shower was thick with mould in the corners and the toilet had obviously not been cleaned properly in a long time under the seat. It turned my stomach. The sheets had stains on them but I was kind of satisfied that they were clean enough until the second night which was hot we pulled the doona out from between the two sheets. The next morning I looked at the doona and it had filthy marks all over it I hate to think what from. I picked it up and on the other side was some sort of dried food that had been wiped on from previous guests. I wrote a note to the cleaner and asked for clean bedding and placed it next to the food gunk on the doona. We came back later and all she did was put a doona cover on it food and all!!
I just cannot fathom how they think a filthy tiny room without even a private ensuite could be worth that price. Yes it was right in the centre of amsterdam but that was also a bad idea as the streets are so noisy all night that you can't sleep!!

Save your money and stay at passengership avanti!! It's a 10-15 min walk to the centre but €40 a (clean) room, you get fantastic breakfast and the people are friendly!!

Do not stay at this place even if you just want a bed for the night!!

The location of this property is the only thing that I would consider a plus, however, that doesn't mean that there's a massive list of bad points. The hotel is plain throughout and really basic. It would appeal to groups of people not bothered about luxury, if you are planning a nice romantic trip with the Mrs, this place is not for you.

I stayed for a weekend in Amsterdam and the rooms were extremely small and the bathroom and shower was down the hall. The price in my opinion was quite hight for what it was, Another issue was that the room was so small and we had bunk beds and the room was not air-conditioned at all so the room becomes very stuffy. The only reason to stay here is if there is an emergency. Think twice about this place!

Room Tip: Locations are good, but the rooms are close to coffee Houses and all the halls smell like Pot!
