The Greenhouse Effect

Reviewed 29 May 2011

Came back to the Greenhouse Effect apartments once again for our yearly trip and we were even more impressed than usual. We stayed in the Canal View apartment. The apartment is right opposite the coffeeshop so right in the centre of the red light district. The apartment view is right over the Damrak with a great view of the Grasshopper, perfect people watching spot! The apartment looks like it was refurbished recently and has a very nice new shower suite with a large sink. The living room is huge and has 3 sofas, 1 unfolds to a double bed and there was also a single bed in the corner. There was even a mini bar which we swore we wouldn't touch (but we did!) but the prices were quite reasonable. The staff were pretty friendly too. Will definitely be back again next year :)

If you are looking for nightlife, variety of restaurants and bar, all at an arms length; this is the place for you. Seems to be a very ordinary building from outside, rooms inside are cozy and comfortble. There is no lift, so be careful while lifting big luggage over the stairs. Staff is very fiendly (by being not concerned very much, just to guide what you need). Can get in any time in your room as separate keys are provided for quiet entry without distubing others. Rooms are near busy road but very comfortable with separate bathrooms which are clean. They deposit 30 Euro for keys, which are refunded during check out. Good Indian restaurant by the side of the hotel.

We have just gor back from a great weekend away as a group of friends and this hotel helped to make it special. I have stayed in a number of different types of hotel In amsterdam and the little boutique touches of the roomssets it aside. If you want to exepreince trur amsterdam in the heart of the city and a really cool group of staff then book into the greenhouse effect.

The value is also very good considering it's location, rooms and continental breakfast. Paul the geordie Bar Manager is also spot on with the customers and looked after us all well! cheers, Chris ( Daffyd )

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April, and what can I say other than FANTASTIC for the money. On arrival, we were welcomed by a friendly staff member. We had to leave a form of id or €10 each as deposit for the key and received it back on check out which was no problem. We stayed in one of the triple rooms (Mary-Jane), it had a bunk & a single bed. Bathroom was a decent size with shower, all very clean. The room also had a mini bar, a safe and a TV. The TV we never used so are unsure of which channels it has.
The Continental breakfast was pretty decent as well, usual choices but plenty of it and served at the back of the bar until 12pm.
As guests we received discount in the bar & coffee shop next door (all part of the hotel).

The location of the hotel is right in the action. Only a few minutes walk from central station, and a few steps away from Red light district & Dam square.

In all I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Amsterdam and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Fantasitc location, Clean and friendly.

I spent the weekend at the Greenhouse Effect with my friend for her 45th birthday. What a great stay. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Urban Chill apartment which was a good size and clean (50 yards away from the hotel itself). It clearly been done up reasonable recently, with the bathroom being in good condition, although a little chilly! We spent the days looking around the city, and also spent time in the coffe shops and bars. The Greenhouse Effect bar and coffee shop were friendly and comfortable, the staff were happy to give advice on the weed to smoke and other places to go for food and drinks. The free breakfast at the Greenhouse was a triumph. Serving until midday it was perfect and they never took it away until we were finished with my friend drinking her tea and eating crioissants until at least quarter to one in the afternoon before they decided enough was enough!! You could smoke in either the bar or the coffee shop and due to the size and popularity of the coffee shop we tended to spend time in the bar smoking instead, although the music got a little exciteable for us at times! All in all a brilliant stay, I'd recommend anyone wanting to smoke and/or drink right in the centre of it all, yet with quiet rooms to stay here. It is right in the middle of the city with the red light district on the doorstep and the coffee shops even closer! Great times, thanks Greenhouse Effect.

Very friendly and easy check in, small deposite left for keys but was no problem really. We were staying in the Lounge appartment and the Uptown appartment, both where right across the street from the Greenhouse effect bar and cafe. The Lounge slept 4 quite cumfortably and was very clean and spaciouse with a great view of the street bellow. The Uptown was just some thing else, we thought it was a mistake when we opened the door, the place was huge, with a view over one of the main cannals in amsterdam, it would easily sleep 6 and was also very clean. I would reccomend both these appartments to small groups of friends looking for some nice private accomadation instead of a hostel.
