Hotel Croydon
Ranked #364 of 376 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 2 September 2012

A group of 6 friends (myself included) fancied a cheap trip to 'dam. Got to the Hostel and oh my god.
It was during a very hot week that we went and the smell of the waffle shop below really rose through the air. The stairs are at best, suicidal.
The cleanliness is awful. The maid actually cleaned the bathroom using one of the pillowcases that she had stripped from the bed.
The sheets were heavily stained and smelly.

HOWEVER

This hotel is in the perfect place in 'dam. Not right on the red light strip but just outside. It was such a great time and the city was fantastic. We all had a good laugh (whilst out of the hotel Croydon). I have given this 2 stars for the area but in my opinion, 0 for Accomodation.

Definitely go to Amsterdam
Avoid Hotel Croydon

I was scared coming there after reading all the reviews but I was curious to try so.
After coming there everything seemed not as bad as everyone said.

The shower was clean and the rooms seemed fine. There was enough daylight and you view right on the Warmoesstraat which is amazing and very fun by night.

Staff was very helpful and care about what you did during your day.

Overall great place to stay.

lovely view from our room which slept three but couldve easily fitted more, when we arrived and saw our room we were over awed unlike the previous reviews we were met with a smiling receptionist and 6 bottles of vodka mixed drinks in our pristine room, the stairs were not as bad as the "fat people" have claimed before. our room and wash house were cleaned daily and soap and towels were provided at no extra costs. there was no curfew and the mints left on the pillow each night was a sign of pure class. i would have no problem in staying here again and i have already booked the honeymoon suite for our second wedding annivesary and i hope to be a regular visitor of the Croydon for years to come

Room Tip: pick a private room as you get a free minibar

Stairs ....ridiculous, dirty room couldnt even use the bathroom or shower as the drainage was blocked and smelled like 1000 accumulated turds!! Location was good but everything else was abysmal. If you can afford a few extra pound stay elsewhere!!

first off, i completely agree with the below reviews, before i even entered my so called 'room' there was puddles on the floor, i was greeted by an arrogant, rude, pubescent excuse of a man who had the emphusiasm of a corpse. our room was filthy, smelly, damp and situated right next to a cathedral which the bells constantly rang every half hour!!! the walls were covered in mould, dirty sheets, THE TOILET WAS IN THE SHOWER!!!!!! vending machine didn't work, and the fact that i paid for my stay was not acceptable.
