    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Di-Ann Amsterdam

    Worst place in the world!


    This has to be the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The stairs are so steep and go on forever. For breakfast we expected there to be some choice but no just bread and a toaster. The room was small and dirty, the bathroom was even worse! I booked this hotel 6 weeks prior to going and told them i would pay by visa, on the 2nd night they demanded cash that we didnt have, and then argued with us. I found the staff were rude aswell.

    Nice hotel, shame about the noise


    We stayed in a double room for 2 nights, and having read one of the previous reviews we feared the worse. However, the hotel is lovely - very friendly staff; conveniently located in the city centre just a quick walk from restaurants, attractions and nightlife; the most amazingly steep stairs in the world, worth a photo; and a nice (if limited) breakfast in a bright airy room. However, we had one main problem ... we had a room that looked over the street, which is a main tram route. We got very little sleep. The windows let in all the noise of the trams rumbling past, all through the night about every 3 minutes, complete with BRRINGGG BRINNGGG noise every time they got to the junction .. right outside our window. So, if you don't need your sleep, this hotel's recommended. Otherwise, perhaps look elsewhere, or request a room not overlooking the street!

    Clean, very small but adequate - friendly staff


    I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it to be spotlessly clean but very small - I can't complain considering we got the room (really very small!) for an average of 35 per night pp, as they were doing a special 3 nights for the price of 2 offer. I would not have been impressed if I had paid the full whack, mind!!The situation is fantastic, 5 mins from Dam Square, and there is a nice restaurant underneath the hotel, as well as an Albert Heijn (AH) supermarket about 2 minutes away. The stairs are steep but average by Amsterdam standards. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. I would stay at the front of the hotel, as the rooms are slightly bigger there. We stayed at the back to avoid street noise, and there is a really cool view of other houses and gardens. Breakfast was included in the price and was adequate (for the price) but nothing to write home about! I walked from Centraal Station, it takes about 10-15 minutes.I'd recommend this hotel if they are doing the 2 nights for the price of 3 offer and if you are looking for somewhere clean, and are not looking for a spacious luxurious room. I would say that the last reviewer should be more angry with Expedia than with this hotel, as I was certainly aware when booking of how small the rooms are etc. The hotel states that it's a budget place and what do people expect at such low prices? Didn't they read the previous reviews??!!??

    Worst Hotel I Ever Stayed In


    I booked The Di Ann through Expedia. The pictures and description of The Di Ann on Expedia where false. I was shocked. I had to turn sideways to enter the dimly lighted (approx. 25watts) room. I am 5' 9" and 170lbs so I'm average sized. The bed was narrower than a child's twin bed. The total width of the room was less than my outstretched arms. Heating was so poor I shivered. I had to use the shower several times to heat the room. My experience seems out of place with other reviews so anyone requesting photos via e-mail I will gladly send them to you.

    A safe, cheap and clean place to sleep in A-Dam


    Stayed here for the last 4 nights. The rooms were VERY small (my suitcase barely fit between the bed and wall), but it was clean, seemed safe, the staff was quite attentive, and the price couldn't be beat.

    Also, the location is great, as it's only about two minutes from Dam Square, 5 from the heart of the Jordaan, and 15 from Museumplein. I'd stay here again if I needed a cheap place to "crash".

    Great stay


    Just returned from a great weekend in Amsterdam and had to share my experience of the Di Ann hotel.

    It is spotless and there was a good daily cleaning service the bathroom was large in comparrision to the room size but both were comfortable.

    there's a TV and a safe in each room and nothing was a problem to the staff who have to be amoung the friendliest i've ever met ( the Hilton could learn a thing from them).

    The breakfast was good and set us up for a good days site seing - which wasnt to hard as the hotel is close to everything.

    One thing if you do have mobility problems the stairs would be a problem as they are steep and narrow. If you visit Amsterdam go here - i'll be back.

    Great location


    When we opened the door to the hotel our first reaction was "Oh my God". We were faced with a long narrow steep staircase, like looking up to heaven, but the staff were very good and insisted on carrying our luggage up.

    Everything was on a small scale within the hotel, but spotlessly clean and comfortable.

    Our room looking out on to the main Raahdastraat was very small but ok for 1 or 2 nights. Shower room was very good.

    Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    Location was ideal, within walking distance of all tourist attractions, far enough away from the Red light District and only 10 mins walk from the Central Station.

    We would go back again if we were only there for a short stay but a bigger room would be necessary for more than a couple of days.

    Not for anyone with walking difficulties or heart problems, the stairs would be a major problem.

    Accommodating staff, basic hotel


    The hotel has an excellent location convenient to those interested in a good launch point for all things touristy (and the Pancake Bakery for lunch and dinner - a five minute walk!) Rooms are quite small and spartan, but are for the most part well kept. We stayed in two of the rooms, one on the busy Raadhuisstraat and another on the quiet back side of the hotel (it was a very hot week and given there is no AC, we opted for a quieter room on the back side of the hotel.)The staff was quite friendly and was accommodating but not invasive. Breakfast was a minimalist affair with all the fixings for toast and pretty darn good coffee. When it comes time to check in, if you are not in the best of shape, leave your bags at the landing inside the door and get help - the stairs are steep and narrow and carrying heavy luggage up them is a risky proposition for many. If you are looking for a five-star hotel, this is not the one for you, but if you are looking for basic accommodations with a great location, this would be a worthy place to check out.

    I'd go back again


    I found the di-ann a clean comfortable hotel, staff helpful and friendly, room was small but totality adeqate for it's purpose (sleeping etc). There are over thirty steps on a very steep stairs just to get to the reception desk may be a problem for people with walking difficulty's. Breakfast is a serve yourself buffet eat as much as you want. All in all i did enjoy my stay in the di-ann and i would go back again.

I was in bag heaven, and Dianne gamely played along, amused by a purse that could be plugged in and used as a rotary phone.  We left with plenty of time to make it for walking tour number three, and arrived at Dam Place twenty minutes early. However this was apparently not good enough because other people had reserved online and there was no room left for us. At a loss we wandered over to a second free walking tour company that had ...

    ... such risks. Eating, texting, talking on phones while gliding along.... its amazing to watch.

    So because everyone uses bikes - ladies all dressed up in high heels are common, the traffic is light, and we kept thinking it might be a publicholiday, as not much action was about anywhere.

    We later realised that shops don't open until 10 am, and things don't really start humming until midday, but even then it was a huge contrast to KL.

    ... coffee required! I highly recommend them. They were so yummy!

    Next up was our cheese and wine tasting. They informed us we were allowed to eat as much of the cheese bricks on our tables as we wished, so naturally I proceeded to eat WAY too much cheese. But, my oh my, it was amazing. They started the sampling with a young goat cheese, and then a more mature goat cheese and then we transitioned into goudas. I don't normally like goat cheese, but I couldn't get ...
