Hotel is in a great location if you want the busy / vibrant part of Amsterdam, about a 2 minute walk from Central Station.

As soon as we got to the hotel however, we were told that there was a 30 euro tax to be paid, we had no other option but to pay the money. We finally made it to our room (after walking up some seriously steep stairs), we were greeted to a tiny room with bunk beds, which can only be described as a prison cell. Bedding looked unclean, graffiti on the beds and generally poorly maintained. Bath had no plug, so could only have a shower. A positive was that we got fresh towels every day and the maid cleaned the room (to a certain extent) daily. I had no issue with noise from the street, as we were at the back of the hotel - instead we had poor views and smells coming from the alley behind. Next time I visit Amsterdam I would not go back to the hotel.

On our last day we visited the restaurant downstairs and the food was quite good and quite reasonable (compared to other places nearby).

This hotel is a good one for those visitting Amterdam. It is a the centre and very conviniently connected to the transportation system i.e tram, train and busses. The only disadvantage is that it is not recommended for senior citizens since the stairs are too steep. No elevator provided.

Stayed in this hotel wi two friends we were at the top corner of the hotel with a good view of the street. Outside the hotel is non stop all day all night if u are a light sleeper dont stay here. Restaurant down stairs is lovely. Rooms were very small wasnt alot of room for 3 people when u opened the door u walked into the first bed. We had are own shower again not very big stair felt more like ladders. Rooms were clean fresh towels everyday staff were friendly. You get what you pay for at the end of the day

In general the hotel is good.. there isn't anything of special but the position is good (near the station and near the attractions of the city), the staff is available for evrything.
Reccomended for those lookinf for a hotel that doesn't cost too much.

Myself and a friend stayed here two nights, little hard to find at first not spotting it amongst the Damrak shops but it was close to the train station, district and tram station so nothing was too far to find! We paid for a double room - non refundable and must've been upgraded to a triple room which was nice, more spacious - Comedy Central on TV (always a bonus). Only downside to the room was our shower head wouldn't connect to the wall - but wasn't a big deal to us. Biggest issues with the place for us were the steep climb to the first floor, but that's just us being lazy and then at night there was a lot of shouting from other rooms but not the hotels fault! :)

So overall, pretty good place to stay if you just need somewhere to sleep whilst you're off exploring Amsterdam.

Ok where shall I start....we got off the train, and headed towards the hotel, on arrival, we were greeted by the receptionist, with a nice smile....she then ask all 5 of us for another €30 for some sort of city tax...but written on my reservation documents, in big letters, its
Said.."if this room is non refundable, (which it was) then the city tax is included in the
Price" when I showed this to the receptionist, she immediately changed her attitude,
To being very very abrupt and nasty...and started raising her voice to me and shouting
That basically I was mistaken...at that time the reception was full of people, and I was
Embarrassed, so I kept my mouth shut, and headed up the 4 flights of stairs, to our attic
Room, with six single beds in it, (when I booked I was promised a room with 3 bunk beds)
The bathroom and toilet is down one flight of stairs, the one window in the room, fell off
Off in my mates hand when he opened it, the curtains had all sorts of stains on them,
(I shudder to think),the taps on the wash basin sink, you couldn't turn, cos
They were so stiff and tight, the noise from the traffic outside at night is consistent, and
Never stops, the beds were so so so uncomfortable, and I will also tell you how much
They charged us for this mess of a place...ready....€560 for two nights ....yes my friends,
Day light robbery, also the toilet paper runs out each day about 12 clock in the
Afternoon, do I really need to carry on.....please do not stay if this hotel, it is a total mess
