Delta Hotel Amsterdam City Centre

... this town really are crazy. I ducked into a bar for a drink while the rain passed, and then got back on the canal boat. Later, I went to eat dinner near the hotel, and then went to watch the World Cup. The Netherlands were playing Costa Rica, and it was a very big game. Everyone was dressed in bright orange and all of the bars and restaurants were packed with people. The game ended up 0-0, and after ...
... like this is not a good idea. All of the street names have multiple vowels and are extremely long. It was hard to just glance at a sign to make sure you are going the right way.
We rented our bikes behind the Rijksmuseum near Leidsplein on Weteringshans street. Then it was Leidsestraat to the cobblestone streets of Prinsengracht. See what I mean about the street names? From there who knows how we got to the Amsterdam museum on ...
This morning we woke up in Holland. The scenery is quite different. The land is flat and we saw a number of animals grazing. It is ANZAC day and there was a short service in the lounge, followed the chef's version of ANZAC biscuits ( really a coconut shortbread type cookie) with coffee with a tot of rum. We arrived in Amsterdam around lunch time. I chose the option of a tour ...
... window shopping for me though. Still to much traveling to do to, to spend money on cloths. But I did find a little food market, so dinner tonight will be cheese and wine, with pear and mango. Yum, CHEESE! Go a couple of souvenirs and spent the afternoon in the cafe doing post cards and watching the world go ...
... of Tin Tin and The Smurfs are also by Belgium cartoonists. Cartoons are so popular here, no billboards are allowed in the city centre so they have cartoon comics to fill the blank spaces instead.
The other random but super popular hot spot is Manneken Pis, which literally translate to Little Man Pee - It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy peeing into the fountain's basin. Since it was first put in place in 1618 its been stolen ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Hotel Amsterdam City Centre
"cool hotel,a must stay"
I think this hotel is priced fairly.Considering what you pay.You get a bed and a shower!!.I was out of the hotel most of the time sight seeing,and when I returned the staff were only to helpful .My room was both spacious and clean and breakfast was filling. I think when you pay so little you should not expect luxury...I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to the Dam.
Good central position
This hotel is in a good central position, near to the central railway station and boat trips. The tram stop for Amsterdam zoo is just up the road - an excellent zoo. The hotel is basic and probably more akin to a 2 star. The service was good and the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was basic but plenty of it. My wife, son and I found the price very reasonable for a city centre hotel.
This hotel is the worse I've ever stayed in and I've been all over the world. The staff are a joke and it seems to be in a perpetual state of chaos and disorganisation. The reception staff are permanantly accompanied by gangs of friends standing around the desk smoking and messing about. On the second night we were awoken by a mouse running around the room and when I went down to ask for another room the moron at the desk needed a boot up his **** before he would act. The second room was just as bad and we found mouse droppings in the corner of the wardrobe and on the blankets. We lost a baseball hat and sunglasses and we confronted the roommaid and threatened to call the police and they were back in our room within the hour. On checkout they added christ knows what to the bill and I gave them a roasting but they seemed used to it. If people are allowed to rip travellers off like this all the time then the Amsterdam tourist authorities must be either taking backhanders or too lazy to do their job properly. DON'T STAY HERE!!
Stay here and get robbed
Stayed in this overpriced dump for one night with some mates.One went home earlier than the rest and took off his watch.When the rest of us arrived back our swipecards wouldn't let us into the room (it must have been changed by a member of staff as the sleepyheads card didnt work in the morning either) so we got a new card from reception.Upon waking the watch was discovered missing from the bedside cabinet and 2 mobile phones had been stolen from our bags.Someone had the nerve to do this as my mate lay asleep!! And thats all besides the fact the place was a smelly,damp ********! DO NOT STAY HERE
Not worth 3 stars at all
Awful. Don't stay here. It is NOT worth 3 stars at all. Just managed not to spoil my stay by keeping away
Agree with everybody else, it's the pits. I wish I'd checked this site before I went !On arrival the room turned out to be 22 Euros a night more than the price I had been quoted, I tried to argue the point but they just stare at you and shrug their shoulders. Basically their attitude is "OK - go find another hotel". Then I had to pay up front for the entire stay, and leave a 40 Euro deposit for the TV remote control.The room was a shoe box, and when I got there hadn't been cleaned even though it was nearly 3PM and the literature suggests you can check in at 1PM. It looked like a squat. Roach ends everywhere, a half drunk can of coke spilt on the bedside table etc. etc. Only thing that seemed to be missing were the used syringes.Bedroom furniture consisted of a desk that was completely useless as it was totally dominated by the 21" TV (a little big considering I could touch it from the bed!) and the "in room" safe.Why was the safe on the desk ? Because the white melamine wardrobe (quality or what) had almost completely fallen apart and was leaning sideways against the wall. In the gap between the bottom left hand side (which was about 12" from the wall) and the top side left hand side (which was touching the wall) I found a couple of shelves and 6 hangers - so the damage didn't look recent.Bathroom actually not too bad, but the shower didn't work properly as it would not stay in position. Why didn't I think to pack a set of screwdrivers ?All in all - total crap. I can only assume a drugged up version of Frank Spencer had the room before I did and I was expecting to go through the floor at any moment.Breakfast - pretty bad, the same thing every day which gets very boring after day 1. Also not good quality.Having seen breakfast I gave the restaurant a miss, so cannot comment on it.To cap off a very unsatisfactory stay the chap at checkout added 26 Euros for City Tax. Where this came from I don't know, it wasn't printed on the bill as you would expect a proper tax to be - he had written it on as an afterthought in blue biro. I suspect a scam but I was so knackered that I didn't bother challenging it.Please do us all a favour and don't stay in this hotel, it is only if people stay away that things will probably change - I'm going to write to the Dutch Tourist Board and query how the hell it got three stars, it'll be interesting to see what they say.
A total rip-off, eng fleikescht!
This "hotel" is a piece of s*** it is really expensive and you have to pay in front! they also want a deposit for the remote control and they only give you back 30 from 40 the only half-way good thing is this dirty shack is the breakfast buffet which could be worse. for god's sake go somewhere else!!!
They should take away 4 of the 3 stars this hotel has.It's horrible!!!Believe me;you really don't want to stay here!!!
Don't stay here!!
This hotel claims to have 3 stars. I do not believe that this is accurate.
Here are the reasons not to stay here:
The rooms are not clean.
The bed clothes were stained with various unidentifiable substances.
The kitchen for the hotel restaurant is near the toilets and the cellar entrance. The smell from the cellar is unbelievable. I am sure that people get ill all the time after eating there.
The ceiling of the room was stained as a result of water dripping through from above. It gave the impression it could cave in a anytime.
Prices for the hotel are not that reasonable. For a little more you can stay at hotels that are safe, clean, where the breakfasts are palitable and not such a free for all.
Do yourselves a favour and don't stay here!!
Horrible crappy hotel. Service is terrible, and they actually billed my credit card without permission. Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY from this one!
