“pretty dodgy!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2004

The Mallemoolan Hotel (and I use the term "hotel" loosely!) is located in the Red Light District, about two minutes walk from Central Station, making it extremely easy to find upon arrival in Ansterdam. However, unless you are stoned for the majority of your stay, you will find the standard of accommodation very poor! It does not even have cheapness to recommend it, as a 4-bed room costs 30 euro per person per night. In order to get to the rooms, one has to manoeuvre suitcases up an extremely steep staircase (with absolutely no help from any of the staff who all look very depressed to be working there!). If your room is on the second floor, another staircase (which is steep enough to be described as a ladder!) awaits you. We stayed in two rooms in the "hotel" due to a mix-up with reservations. The first was a 5-bed room which resembled somthing from a prison movie- shabby carpets, names etched on the wooden wall panels, a scary sculpture of a cone of french fies (!!), and a window (with no lock!) overlooking a scaffold from the next door building. The communal toilet was vile in that it apeared clean but reeked of urine, and we didn't even dare set foot in the shower. The second room was marginally beter in that it had private bathroom facilities which were cleaner in smell and appearance. However, once again, there was no lock on the window, the decor was extremely shabby, and the toilet was separated from the rest of the room with only a shower curtain! It would be quite complimentary to describe the clientele as dodgy. Basically, the Mallemoolan is a great place to stay if you intend to spend your time in the "coffeeshops" of which, a large number are located only a stone's throw away. However, if you want to be close to the pretty parts of of Amsterdam, don't stay here.
