“Good enough”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

For the price you pay this hotel is up there, when talking about services and interior, considering that it's cheaper than most hostels in Amsterdam. The location is great close to the center but far enough away to give you a good nights rest. Breakfast is included in the price and with the small garden in the back it's quite nice. Only one downside was that our room, although fitted with it's own bathroom did not have any soap or showergel. All in all very good price/quality ratio, would come back again.

This hotel is very clean .. The only difficulty is the location you need to google where you heading or u get lost but other than that ill stay there again .. Free fast wifi and good breakfast and an outdoor place to enjoy morning coffee

Flew over to Amsterdam recently and have booked with Crystal. everything was perfect! Just as I needed, a simple single bed room where I could rest after long day of walk :) No complaints at all! Certainly would recommend!

I stayed there for 4 days. It is in a very quiet neighborhood, so sleep was very good. To get to the closest burger king, coffee shop and restaurants, it takes 2 minutes walk. The single room is spacious, but the shared loo was the tiniest i have ever seen. Otherwise great value for money. Breakfast was ok, various with coffee, bread, ham, cheese and corn flakes. Nothing to die for, but ok for the price.

Reviewed 6 November 2012

We had a quadruple room with private facilities - the room was warm and comfortable, the location was perfect (a nice neighbourhood a few minutes walk from Leidseplein). We were on the 4th floor, up four very steep flights of steps - not too much of a problem for us, but many would struggle with the stairs as there are no lifts. We were concerned that there was no fire exit - the only way down was this steep, narrow staircase. The window catch was broken on one of the windows which would be worrying for anyone with young children. The hotel generally needed some TLC - and our room needed a good clean and some basic repairs (door handle missing off the wardrobe, curtain hooks missing so curtains hung down, the toilet had seen better (and cleaner) days, no bulb in one of the bedside lamps, the other lamp flickered). We were concerned by the rat trap in the corner of the room! Breakfast was adequate - plenty of meat/cheese/eggs/bread/cereal and drinks: not brilliant quality, but it was OK. We thought it was expensive for what it was, but then accommodation is expensive in Amsterdam.
