Hotel Y Boulevard
Ranked #358 of 374 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 9 February 2014

There are two reasons to choose this hotel: relatively low price comparing to other centrally located hotels and location in walking distance from the main station. This hotel is very old and needs renovation long ago. Tiny dark rooms with very basic comfort, practically, only beds. Cheap bed linen and grey towels. Thick windows and bad heating system. Poor breakfast. Looks more like a hostel. Very hard to get relaxed after long exploring of the city.

Room Tip: there is no any good rooms

Stayed here from 30th December 2013 until 2nd January 2014 and it was perfect for us, stayed with 3 friends in a basement room, a few of the plug sockets werent working which was a downside but the beds were clean, fresh towels and sheets each day, didnt sample the breakfast so no comment on that but all in all a good stay, would definitely stay here again, cheap and cheerful and very close to the city center and train station :) happy customers !!!

The location of the hotel is very good but the room was very dirty and outdated. The electric sockets were all broken and the heating was not working. There was a gap below the windows so cold air was flowing into the room.

the hotel locatiion is very strategic ie less than 10 minutes walking distance to city centre & nearby to shopping mall & public transportaion. The bus just infront of the hotel. we took the train from Sciphol airport to city centre station than walked to the hotel. The hotel also allowed us to put our baggage at the lobby while walting for our check in time.
the reception staff is also nice. Infact they allowed us to use their printer to print our daily pass travelling which we make booking from the internet.
we can only access the internet at hotel lobby. the reception from room is not so good. The hotel provided simple breakfast which are bread, ham, cheese, boil egg, coffee, tea and juice.However, the food is good enough to cover our morning meals.
the room is small and has very limited space. There are 4 single beds and 1 make up table and smaall wardrop.
the fittings in the room is quite ages. the shower in the toilet also not in a good condition. the floor cannot cover the water flow when we shower. as a results, the water overflow on the floor whenever we shower.

Location is excellent, less than 10 mins walk to the Centraal Station but it feels eerie. It didn't help that the front desk people were not personable and unhelpful and the middle age guy managing at night is very abrupt and rude! I've travelled in South America, Northern America, SE Asia, and Europe and have stayed in back packer hostels, bed and breakfasts, apartment hotels, 2-4 start hotels, luxury resorts and this was the first time I've experienced bad service and accommodation. I understand it Is a budget hotel but please save yourself the trouble and go somewhere else!

I stayed for 2 nights. The room with private toilett, was clean and had a nice view (3 floor). The bed was very confortable.
The breakfast was a buffet, it means you can eat as much as you wanted but didn't have much variety.
Good value for the room.
