we stay in all kinds of hotels: 5 star, hostels, boats, air bnb and were looking for something inexpensive in amsterdam and found it! after going to the website every week or so, found the price dropped to about 80 euros for our family of 4 to rent a 4 bed room. with this rate, they wanted to charge 10 euros each for breakfast, so we declined, but when we got to the hostel, they gave us breakfast anyway. most of the hotels in amsterdam will accomodate only 2-3 people so you have to book 2 rooms...t,his was ideal for our family to stay together.
location: a bit out from central station (but nothing is that far) but very nice if you are going to museums as well. easy to get to from the train from the airport. station 2 blocks away.
hotel: really friendly, very hip and young vibe, our middle ageness and young kids didn't bother anyone. kids got free frisbees from the front desk. free internet but you can't access it in the rooms. nice lounge area with tvs inexplicably set to cartoons. our kids loved that. very large lockers that are easy to use and inexpensive. we stuffed 2 large backpacks into one.
room: very very clean and basic. you make your own bed with fresh sheets and strip the beds when you leave. bathroom fine. we had 2 fire alarms that night and the corridor can be noisy but it settles down later.
breakfast: great! long line. go early. very filling continental breakfast: boiled eggs, lunchmeats, bread, cereal, milk, juice, etc.
you can rent bikes as well.
overall an unconventional fun cheap way to stay in amsterdam with kids!
