"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.
Should be closed down or at least prosecuted
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!

... this has happened that he can recall and suspects it is to do with current concern with Syrian refugees trying to access Western Europe. After berthing at Amsterdam at about 1.30 we embarked on a city tour, starting with a boat tour of the city canals, a walking tour of the red light district and finally a drive around the outer areas of Amsterdam in a bus to see an authentic windmill. Relevant information on Amsterdam: it's a town of some 800,000 people, of which 200,000 ...
... With Jerry's keen sense of direction and memorization after studying a map we found the ferry terminal with ease. We parked our bikes among the other few hundred and walked on the ferry. (They cross about every 5 minutes or less). The minute and a half ferry ride took us to the Central Station which is the main train station in/out of Amsterdam. We stopped inside at Starbucks for a hometown coffee. Kathy's ...
... bicycles have the right of way over everything else; pedestrians and cars alike yield to bikes. Nobody, including children, wears a helmet. Children ride their own bikes through narrow bicycle-choked streets at about three years of age. Until then, babies and young children are carried in front and back carriers, backpacks and even in big huge square baskets on the front or back of bikes. We decided to partake in the insanity by taking a ...
... kids in the U.S. (who are usually only granted kindergarten free from homework). In all, the Netherlands (and much of Scandinavia) are ideal places to be a kid. If Anne Frank were born today, I think that her budding creative talent would be nurtured in school and by parents who weren't preoccupied with survival. She'd have playgrounds and parks and the freedom to explore both on her bike. I think that if Anne Frank were a child today, she'd flourish. But ...
