Me and my husband and 4 our friends went to Amsterdam for three days over weekend.
After reading reviews we decided to book rooms in Fantasia Hotel. The location is excellent. It is really close to the city centre and we could easily walk everywhere. Also there is near a tram (nr.9) from Central Station going near the hotel so you do not have to use taxi which might even cost you 30 euro because all streets are one-way.
The hotel does not look impressive. It is placed in an old building so do not expect luxury hotel. The staff is really friendly. They will help you in everything and speak very good English. The hotel has different types of rooms. Most of them are really small. We got very narrow room. The ceiling is also very close so in total the room seems to be a cage. However it is very clean and even there is a small cattle with tea and coffee facilities. We had a room with bathroom (we know that not all of the rooms have bathroom) which was small and not modern but clean. Also our bed seems to be a camp-bed so do not plan to do much on the bed because noise is horrible. The rest of rooms (our friends) were bigger and beds were normal (not camp-bed).
Breakfast was served from 8:00 am till 10:00am. It is better to be there before 9:00am. After 9:00 you might not find much on the table. It is buffet style but if you normally eat a lot for the breakfast, you will not feel full. For the breakfast you will find toast bread, butter, jams, ham and cheese. Of course, tea & coffee and juice. Do not expect huge amounts of those products. It is just for not feeling the first hunger. I totally recommend something nice to eat in the local cafeterias which you find many everywhere.
It is very good hotel for somebody who is young and wants to enjoy the stay in Amsterdam without using public transport. It is very close to all amusements and ''Red'' district. The hotel is clean and very cheap. So even the small breakfast is not a big problem.
The location is excellent and staff very nice. For a short period of time the hotel seems to be very good choice. Just do not expect for 35 euro per person per night luxurious conditions.
