Reviewed 27 December 2013

Quentin Arrive is well located near the center of Amsterdam, being about a 5-10 minute walk from the train station. The main lobby is well furnished and a good place to chill out before heading into the city.
The staff - in particular the Australian (English?) receptionist - were really friendly and an asset to the hotel. It's well worth asking their advice on places to visit, restaurants, and souvenir choices.
Rooms were basic but clean - as a student, I'd say they were far better than halls - and boast some incredibly comfy beds and HEATING.
To sum things up, I'd have no problem staying here again.

Room Tip: Avoid room near the front if you are a light sleeper.

This is a great basic hotel. Clean, comparatively cheap, great location on Harlemmerstraat. Very friendly and competent staff. Two things to keep in mind:
1) There is no lift(elevator). Dutch stairs can be more like ladders.
2) Shared-facilities means you have to share the loo with the neighbors.

All that said, I've stayed here many times and will continue to do so.

The hotel is placed just far enough away from the centre to have a cheap price, but to still within easy walking distance.

There is a large lobby with friendly and helpful staff who were welcoming. The room was very cheap and for a solo traveller on a very limited budget it was ideal. My room was small and slim with no furniture other than the bed, a dressing table and a coffee table. The only clothing storage option was a slatted shelf attached to the wall, but this worked fine for hanging items from it and stacking them on top.

I was there several nights and the bedding was never changed. There was a towel in the room, although this was never changed either - perhaps it was not a part of the deal and had been left by a previous guest(?). After the second night I simply used the travel towel that I had brought in my luggage. The bedding was the same throughout the visit; it was never changed, but it was straightened up daily. There was a basin attached to the wall near the door, but this had no plug, something which made using it a trifle tricky. The tap did however always supply water; this ranged from cold to scalding, which is more than can be said for the shared shower. I only managed to have one, non-cold shower during my stay. The floor of the room was cigarette burnt and dirty; it could certainly have benefited from a good vacuuming.

I was staying on the third floor at the front, and this had a couple of disadvantages: firstly there was something of a climb up the narrow, steep stairs (no lift) - not something I'd like to try while drunk; secondly, the front of the hotel skyline was lit by two arc lights fitted to the building opposite. These shone right into the window and lit up the room as though day-lit even through the curtains. In the end I found a suitable use for the dirty towel attaching it to the curtains (no curtain rail).

I was using the hotel as a base for exploring Amsterdam and surrounding towns so as a place to crash it was fine for my purposes. The only downside was the parties by drugged-up teenagers in the room next door - which must have been much bigger and suitable for six to stay in. These parties started around 11PM and usually ended around 4AM. I suspect this is a problem for hotels in Amsterdam generally, but as this hotel is on the budget end, and the room seemed to have been sub-divided at some point in the past the noise absorbency of the rooms was, essentially, nil.

Overall the room was adequate for the money paid for it, the only issue I had was with the guest next door and this is hardly the fault of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as near to the ground floor as possible and away from the stairs, bathroom and shower...

I loved this place people talking about shared bathroom obviously booked the cheaper holiday which clearly states that it is shared bathroom! I payed that little bit extra and got private shower and bathroom and breakfast. We will certainly be returning next year! Great location loads of coffee shops local!

The hotel itself is in a great location, less than 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal station, right next to the many of infamous coffeeshops and easy to find. The rooms aren't anything special, very basic but good for their purpose. Considering what we paid for our stay and the location, it's pretty perfect for those on a budget but don't want to pay for unnecessary luxuries. What really stood out was the reception staff, every staff member we met were lovely, especially Amy, who was incredible helpful and accommodating to myself and my friend. I couldn't sing her praises enough. I think that housekeeping could be improved but other than that we had a lovely stay and would definitely stay again.
