The location of Hotel Rokin is excellent. You are less than 10 minutes by foot from Central Station, a couple of minutes from the Red Light District, and 20 minutes walk from Leidseplein.
As other have mentioned substantial roadwork is going on outside - or was back in March. It was the weekend and I didn't notice any noise or even work activity so it wasn't a problem accept it was a bit awkward walking round the construction to get to the front of the
hotel from the other side of the road.
The staff were all friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was better than most economy hotels in Amsterdam.
The room was awfully narrow but that's not uncommon in Amsterdam. At least it was well kept and clean.
The shower was almost useless. Getting a warm water shower was very difficult. A scolding hot or freezing cold one is no problem!
I've stayed in lots of hotels in Amsterdam over the years. This one isn't the best but it's also far from the worst. But even considering
that it's not as bad as others I've stayed in the price gap between Rokin and the others seemed out of whack. It seems to be about 15 or 20 euro too much per night. Maybe that's why I was able to get a weekend room at the last minute. normally difficult to do in that area of Amsterdam.
That said, I'd stay here again. But I'd look around for a cheaper place before settling for this one.
