“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

I've been to Amsterdam several times over the years & have stayed at Hotel La Boheme every single time.
What I love about this place is that it has a nice welcoming environment & the staff are always friendly & helpful. The rooms are basic, but very clean & comfortable & the location of the hotel (a minute walk to one of the main squares) rivals even the most elite hotels in Amsterdam.
If you are coming a weekend with friends or the other half, & don't want to pay over the odds & are not looking for anything too fancy, but still a clean & warm environment I would seriously recommend this hotel.
They also have a cat called Mimi, who is very kool :o)

Basic accommodation, size of room didn't bother us as we were out all day sightseeing. Good accommodation for a base while checking out Amsterdam. We found the location convenient, very easy to navigate city area. Only con was that it was a bit it noisy from the street outside, but that may be the same as most accommodation Amsterdam. Overall was good, we found this place had a relaxed vibe, helpful staff, good breakfast, would recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights in based on the reviews on tripadvisor. The staff were fantastic and very helpful, and the breakfast was good. But the room we had left a bit to be desired, we were on the top floor so were well aware of the steep stairs. The room itself was very small and once we had our two medium sized suitcases in the room there wasn't a lot of room to move. The bathroom was basic but the shower cubical is so small that we were constantly bumping the taps and scalding ourselves. We ended up leaving the shower curtain open to stop it sticking to us. One day we were given 4 hand towels as they had run out of full size towels. The room got very hot and didn't cool down and leaving the window open wasn't an option due to the noise outside. Amsterdam is expensive but next time we will spend a bit extra and stay elsewhere.

Whenever I'm travelling to amsterdam, I always try to book a room here. It's very clean, comfortable and the location is great. It's just a few steps away from the leidseplein (sp?), which is one of the main squares in the city centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are comfortable. When we stayed recently, they'd just had new tv's installed in the rooms. When you visit, you can see they take pride in their hotel. It's great value and i cant recommend it enough.

Great location, price, staff. Rooms are basic but clean; could use a little touch-up paint. Steep stairs will be a barrier to some. Breakfast was very good. Staff were a fount of information on the city, museum tickets, transport, etc. Plan to stay again next time in town.

Room Tip: Choose an upper-story room on the courtyard side. Very quiet after 10 PM.

Very nice place compared to some of the other flea bag hotels in Amsterdam. The rooms are small but adequate. There are separate beds. Small but adequate bathroom. Water is running real slow in the shower, might be an improvement point. If you want to leave before 08:00 you will have a dilemma because you paid 20 euro for the key. They open at 08:15 so getting your money back is a challenge. Make sure you talk about that when you check in. There's friendly people so they will have a solution for that. Hotel is real close to the Leidseplein which is THE place to go out.
