“In the Dark”
Reviewed 20 June 2007

The room was small, but clean. There was not adequate lighting in the hall or in the room. The one window did not open and gave no light or ventilation. The location was good; breakfast was adequate; the staff were very helpful; and the price was okay.

The location of ths hotel is fantastic, right in the heart of Amsterdam and its many bars and restaurants with a convenient few minutes walk firom the Central Station.

Our rooms, inc shower/wc were found to be clean, warm, comfortable and of a good standard. Excellent breakfast area and food.

All staff we found to be pleasant, friendly and made you feel welcome.

A well recommended place to stay in Amsterdam.

Nice location, a short walk from central station and easy to get to from the airport. This hotel is right in the middle of all the action you come to Amsterdam for. Coffee shops are everywhere near this hotel, and the center of the Red Light District is a 5 minute walk away. Its also very close to Dam Square. The staff was very friendly and the front desk has someone on duty 24hrs a day, and its not a problem to stumble in at 3AM and go up to your room. The rooms are a little smaller than what you'd get in the USA, but you don't exactly make the journey to Amsterdam to sit it a hotel room anyway... The room is clean, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is clean, there is a closet, chairs, table, night stands, and they have cable TV with programing in English. There's a PC with high speed Internet in the lobby. They have free breakfast until 10AM, which was pretty good and had a decent selection of stuff to eat. Also if you have postcards you want to send home, you can leave it with the person at the front desk and they'll put it in the mail for you. All in all I "enjointed" my stay!

This hotel is close to the central station and therefore great for getting around. It is a short walk from the red light district but far enough away not to notice, if you don't want to see this part of the city. The staff are welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and good value for Amsterdam. I was told by the friendly receptionist that the hotel had recently been taken over and revamped. There is no bar in this hotel, but there are plenty just around the corner.

I have been to many countries and stayed in many places that I have paid as little as $7 night. I have never stayed in any place as bad as this. If I knew it was safe to sleep in a park in Amsterdam I would have rather have done that. I don't see how they could legally charge 123 Euro a night. Even if you are drunk, etc you would not want to sleep here. The people who have written good reviews must know of some new drug or they are associated with this nightmare.

Want to know why it is so bad:

1) Ceiling fan in the room only had three blades and they were all bent down. Oh.. it didn't work either...

2) It was very cool outside, but hot as hell inside and you could not open a window. I mean VERY hot. We would lay our clothes out so that right when you get dried off after a shower you throw your clothes on and get out before you start sweating.

3) Shower was nasty nasty.

4) TV remote did not work, and TV only worked sometimes.

5) Rooms are very, very, very small. Don't count on seeing any room like the photos on their website.

The only good thing I can say is that the hotel room forces you to spend as little time as possible in the room and to spend all your time out seeing the sites.

Uggggh! I hope one day I will be able to forget this scary place!

Okay, I admit the hotel isn't 5 star, but if you only want a place to sleep and wash I don't think you can go wrong with this place.

The location is excellent, close to central station, Dam Square, Red Light district etc.

The rooms were warm and comfortable, clean and the bed nice to sleep on. Didn't try breakfast so can't comment.

If you are in the dam as a group on the beer and what to be close to all the action, give it a try.

No problems with reception either and didn't feel unsafe once.

Where do i start. I and my party were disgusted with the 8 bed apartment i booked through easytobook. The toilet had been smashed, a filthy shower curtain that had gone brown, no TV for 36 hours even though I complained, broken coffee table which I tried to fix, un-equipped kitchen only plastic cups from a water dispenser, not even a kettle, worn out carpets right through to the boards, most of the windows would not open, broken window blinds, broken heater, dangerous exposed electrical circuits on uplighters and not enough beds. When i brought up the beds situation with the staff they just shrugged their shoulders and said "well thats all we have". It dosn't even look like the photos in the advertisement. On the advertisement I was promised 8 single beds and we got 7 and a double. Not good enough. I and my party were absolutely let down and will never stay at this hotel again. I cannot believe that this is a 3 star hotel apartment, no way, more like 1 star. No clean towels and nobody came in and cleaned the apartment while we stayed. The whole apartment was in a state of being decorated but by no means nearly finished, with dirty walls and filled holes everywhere. There was nowhere to hang any clothes or a chest of drawers to use either. One room didn't even have a light in it. The rooms were not even at the hotel it was a few doors away from the hotel. It was filthy and if this is what easytobook has to offer then I will not be booking through them ever again. I have been going to Amsterdam for 8 years now and I can honestly say this was the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in and my friends feel the same. We were disgusted and let down to such an extent that the accommodation was the talking point of the trip due to it being so bad. Hope that you pass on my comments to the hotel. You really should not be advertising places like this, take it off your lists so that nobody else has to go through it as well. It’s a total disgrace. Seeing is beleiveing, and you do not want to see this i'm sure. By the way there was meant to be a lift which was why it was booked along with being close to the station, but i saw no lift and i have spent the last three days in bed with a knackerd back because of all the narrow steep stairs taking tablets galore to ease the pain.
I wish i had a camera with me to have taken some photos.
Do not stay at this hotel.
