Reviewed 8 November 2013

Sorry I know this is for reviews but was wondering if anyone who stayed there could tell me how many people would be sharing one bathroom? I'm only going coroner night but can't face sharing a bathroom with the whole hotel!

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Ok bar with live music. Rooms grotty. Beds narrow beyond belief. No sound proofing at all. We had 2 smashed windows in our room with no refund or alternative room offeref - like it or lump it sir. A cheap dive for a stag do if u want to stay above a bar in staggering distance of the red light district.

This is not a hotel, nor a youth hostel: this is just a hole. Yeah it is in the centre and everything is easy to reach. But you sleep with real loud street noise and foremost: in dirt! The rooms are ugly, the walls and the ground is really manky. If you do not have an athlete's foot you will get it in the shower here. At least: all is TOTALLY overprized! Not to recommend at all - even if you plan to be drunk in Amsterdam all the time!

It says that there's a lift but I didn't see one, the stairs are very steep and, being disabled, made my stay very difficult. Decoration and room fittings were poor and the room servicing was invisible.

Spent 3 nights in a single room with shared bathroom on the floor. Everything was in a simple and good condition as it should be in a budget hotel. Central location is a high point of this place and it bytes down any of your possible dissapointments. At least I haven't seen any unsatisfied customers during my stay there. Noises are blocked by the window in the room. Towels were changed everyday! The bar downstairs is very atmospheric and stylish in a British manner so it's pub actually. Great collection of music played on the air in there and Friday evening there was a live gig of a band. The stuff helped in any question and situation and it's been nice just to talk with them as well. Bathrooms and wash basin in the room are equipped with a mixture of shampoo and douche gel so you don't need to warry about taking 100 ml bottle of washing liquid on the board of airplane. I will come again for where at this lovely place.
