Hotel Flipper
Ranked #322 of 371 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 13 March 2013

I booked then read Tripadvisor reviews, so we were pleasantly surprised. Bit hard to find, and steep stairs but it's an Amsterdam townhouse! Room very small but clean and a double bed. Rain pattering on the skylight lulled us to sleep. Shared bathroom fine, and shampoo/shower gel provided. Great for overnight stay, and the central station is a leisurely walk away....

this was a terrible hotel its different in.the picture...We reserved two bed rooms but when we enter our room theres a 3 bed rooms..and its hot in the room so we need to open the window.The room is so small the arrangent was not good.The firsy night was a nightmare we cant sleep because we was scracthing until in the morning.I woke up in.the morning i.had 10 bites over my face..my neck all.over my body.When we ask the reception*chinese girl*if we can changed our room the reception said that the hotel.is full and you will be leaving tomorrow morning.)so.we dont have choice..we sleep again.that room.but we have coverd in our face with a small towel..we dont use again the bedsheet.the chinese girl is not totally helpful..we ask if there's a near pharmcy and she said the yes and she give the direction.but she dont tell.us that the pharmacy is already closed.

The stairs is very tiny and dangerous.
the payment of extra person is.so expensive eventhough she stay 3 hours you must pay 33€..and breakfast its depends of types of room..The breakfast in this hotel.is so simple. its totally different in the picture.in.their site.
The street was dark...and scary.


Better to look other hotel..and i dont recommend this hotel.

Stayed there with friends earlier this month. The rooms were very very small with only a skylight. We felt like prisoners, but paying for the privilege!! The rooms are very shabby with no space to place your luggage (without blocking the doorway!)

They tried to charge for breakfast, even though we each said we didnt intend to dine in the hotel. The walls are wafer thin so you can hear your neighbours very well! The hotel reception cannot speak English very well.. or Dutch for that matter!!

Oh, and they wanted 5% surcharge when paying by credit card!!! I could not believe how a so-called 'hotel' can get away with that! These Chinese owners obviously strongly prefer cash in the hand!

There are so many other choices in Amsterdam. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE look elsewhere!! I realised afterwards they dont have a cancellation policy on most of their rooms - I'm sure alot of people change their minds after booking, but tied in at that point to the 'Flipper Prison'

I'm a student so I'm used to low cost accommodation and so I wasn't expexcting much when we paid 100 each for the hotel for 3 nights..
The receptionist was beyond rude and so unhelpful it wasn't even funny- we paid online via Booking.com and when we got to the hotel the receptionist told us (rudely) we had to pay 136Euro deposit on a credit card to ensure the room- which we were not told when we booked. She assured us we would get this back when we left the hotel- which we haven't and are still waiting for!
-You have to leave the key at reception whenever you leave the building which is a pain when there's a queue at reception.
-The rooms were tiny and the bathroom door wouldn't shut properly until we moved the beds around!

The hotel itself is in a pretty good location with the tram station just at the end of the road..However I'd have rather paid an extra £30 and stayed more in centre and at a better hotel.
Overall- good location but the reception staff and the overall state of the hotel/b&b ruined it!
Wouldn't stay here again

Room Tip: Chose a different hotel!
