This hotel really is the house of horrors. We were a group of 5 girls from the UK staying for 3 nights. Upon arrival we were given the basement rooms. The first basement room was disgusting - it had 4 grotty 'beds', very little lighting, a view of the tip from the window, holes in the wall where there had been a fight from the previous occupants, and for some unknown reason a massive blob of wet toilet paper stuck to the wall (presumably to cover up a hole?). Hotel manager had no shame about the state of the rooms and said 'it's amsterdam what do you expect - if we fixed these things, they would just get broken again so what's the point'.
The second basement room was just as bad but more bearable because of the heat blasting from the radiators and a few more lights. Dodgy stain on the bathroom floor (looked alot like old blood) and yet more holes in the walls.
We did mange to change the first basement room for a double room on the second floor - although the room was slightly better, the bathroom was hideous (avocado green and filthy) and the shower was more of a drip. Thin walls too - my friends woke up to the sound of their neighbours coughing/wretching/vomitting down the corridor. Nice.
Breakfast consisted of bread (not even toasted) with slices of ham and cheese. that was it. tea/coffee if you were lucky. We only had breakfast one day because it was so awful. The lights even went out when we were half way through our 'meal' - not sure if this was due to fuse blowing (no cooking was being done so don't know how this could have happened) or money in the meter running out.
Certainly not a 3* although the manager will beg to differ - and charges as if it's a 3*! Our opinion of the hotel was shared by most guests we met in the breakfast room that morning. Don't go there!!!
