“Great Hotel -TERRIBLE LOCATION”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed in this hotel with 9 friends for a stag doo from 16th-18th May.

Owner is very friendly
Rooms clean
Vending machine sells BEER
24HR Reception

No lift & lots of stairs
Situated next to a MOSQUE
In a predominantly muslim area
Fridge was clean but hardly worked
NO COAT HANGERS

Ferries run all night fron Noord to Central but still a pain to get to especially at night.
Cab is €20 to hotel fron Central.

All in all good hotel but wouldn't go back due to location.

If you dont mind being out the way a bit and having to walk through rural estates late at night this is the place for you.

Oh and a 500ml bottle of water is €2!! Go to the supermarket next door!

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends

With my review I want to overcome all other good and sufficient reviews, trust me....
Hotel is in the Muslim area, not a good idea walking here in late hours. Don't know if bed sheets were been cleaned, however some hairs founds there, don't give us a very good impression. We ask to change them, they change with smaller ones, not suitable for a double bed. The room (n. 13) is not the one free showed by booking.com. It should have had a balcony, but was ah the ground floor with two giants windows that you cannot close to stop the sunlight in the early morning and you cannot open to change air. They are so high that you cannot even see out. Carpet moquette on the floor. Hairdryer was broken. Every time someone uses the bathroom at the first floor, it's like to have a waterfall over the head. Furthermore I think there is a pipe into the wall that often swings inside producing an intolerable noise like "toc.....toc...toc..." for 3-4 minutes every time. Rooms are not soundproof at all, vibrations and noise also when someone walks in the corridor. So you can sleep from 1:00 am to 7:00 am if you are lucky. The first floor smells like a sewer. Don't go there for no reason, price is very high for this shame.

We booked a deal through Kayak with this being our hotel for the Easter Weekend. From arriving at Amsterdam Central Station we made our way over the water on the free Ferry. Straight away we were concerned as we were the only tourists going in this direction. We had to walk through a large housing estate, passing skate parks and generally totally out of the tourist area.

Finally finding our hotel (I'm afraid the entrance didn't shout luxury) we were checked in by a very friendly man and given our room key. We went to our room which is not to a standard I've stayed in since I was a kid on a cheap budget school holiday. Very tiny with two thin cupboards balanced in between the two windows. Our only side table was a fridge with the cord stretched up to just about reach a socket. The bed was shoved into the corner, above the bed were loads of holes hacked into the wall. It did look clean but incredibly basic, definitely not a 'Hotel' I was prepared to stay in for a holiday, More like a Hostel.

We left 5 minutes later and refused to return spending all day looking for new accommodation. Very very disappointed. I blame the travel company for offering this as a Hotel. I'm sure the accommodation is suitable for travelling individuals on a budget.

Room Tip: A Hostel more than a hotel.

Our room was dirty and very, very basic, the towels were dirty too...It also smelt bad. The hotel has no elevator and you need to carry the luggage by the stairs. We couldn't stay, so we left, no matter that we payed for 3 nights.

We received the loveliest welcome from the hotel staff who allowed us to check in 4/5 hours early. We were offered a choice of room, smoking with a balcony! The hotel was very cute, bright and welcoming. The room was lovely, bright and large with a surprisingly big bathroom with a good shower and we had very comfortable beds! The two of us stayed for 2 nights, and expected to not spend all of our time in the room... However because it was such a lovely hotel/room, we decided to spend our evenings there on our balcony relaxing. The residential area around was quiet with a children's park, a coffee shop around the corner, food shops and a supermarket... also just a 2 minuet walk to the free ferry into central Amsterdam which ran all the time up until 12am. They included optional breakfast, 24 hour staff, fridge, towels, hair dryer, maps, bedding.

This hotel exceeded our expectations for the price that we paid and we will be going back there to stay again.

We only stayed for one night -- booked it to save a little. If youre not tight on budget -- reconsider. The room was dark, small, no a/c, it's located in a questionable neighborhood... People in the neighborhood was loud even at 2 am.

The main benefit of the hotel ISIS is its location. It is just accross the chanell which is right behind the Centraal staion. Al you need to do is a 10 minutes trip on a free ferry (which added extra charm to our trip to Amstardam) and 5 minutes walk after that.
The hotel itself is not so good. All the time there I smelt a strong smell of cheap detergents. So it is good just to spend a night or two there (not more).
Anyway, considering cost of the hotel and its location I would rather choose it one more time than looking for other options.
