I had read reviews before we left for amsterdam and didn't hold out much hope. The stairs at the entrance were almost vertical and then we were charged 50 euro for a room key deposit.
Getting the door open was a struggle and we had to get the lady in reception to come and do it because it was near impossible.
The room itself(13) was worse than we had anticipated.There was a patio type room next to it where there was 2 windows of the room next door allowing us a full view. It doesn't exactly fill you with confidence. I must say though that the staff were friendly and easy to get on with.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel but it was fine for what our group was here to do but i wouldn't stay again.

I stayed there for a weekend. I paid 120 eur per night for a double bedroom. I have to say that was absolutely AWFUL.
We paid a lot for a USELESS room...without Soap in the bathroom or any other facility. We also have been sleeping on the top floor of a discotheque, so basically ALL night the walls of the room were shaking because of the loudly music.
The Continental breakfast was HORRIBLE bread ham and cheese. I think that we overpaid for AWFUL ROOM.

This hotel is nothing short of a rip off joke. The room was dirty and the bathroom filthy with black mould. The sheets had cigarette burns and the smell of sewage coming back the toilet was disgusting. We had to buy bleach to pour down the sink and toilet just to make the smell bearable. The clubs round the corner play loud banging dance music all night so sleeping is out of the question until after 5am. No amount of money could make me stay here again and if I could I would stand outside everyday with a huge plackard saying ' for gods sake, don't stay here'. Water was dripping from the ceiling at the top of the 1st floor landing for 2 days without anything being done and as we left it was bowing to the point of collapse. With any luck the ceiling has come down and the hotel closed. If the owners gave it a coat of paint, a deep clean and made it safe ( the electrics were very dodgy) it would be a good budget hotel in a perfect location for anyone wanting to stay out and party all nght.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. Ours was en suite but most were shared bathrooms.
