      Historical Traveler Reviews Falcon Plaza Hotel Amsterdam

      Never again

      from

      Spent only one night.. and will never again.. no heating.. aww.. yes heating but not in my room.. offered mooore blankets.. dirty.. not cheap..

      Hated it

      from

      i booked the falcon plaza over the net,i wouldnot stay here again 2 people sharing a room the rooms were to small and dirty,no light in the shower room it was miles from the centre of amsterdam and not in walking distance and the hotel next door looked more inviting.

      Good all round hotel

      from

      Just got back with 4 friends following our trip away. Quite anxious about this hotel after reading other reviews on this site, however i couldn't fault the hotel in any way. Not as luxurious as our 3 star hotels at home, but considering the cost i think we got what we paid for. The quad room (rm 406) consisting of 4 proper beds with clean linen, laminate flooring, a powerful shower (worth having the room just for this) and clean bathroom. The staff we met were polite and the receptionist was English. Breakfast was continental and loads of it. Filled up before our day out. Considering we only needed to use the room for sleeping, it was more than adiquate. If we should visit Amsterdam in the future i would not hesitate in using this hotel again.

      This should be classed as one star hotel

      from

      On arriving at the hotel was dismayed to find it quite a dingy dull hotel and on the website it was stated as a modern and well decorated. The rooms were small and dingy expensive for what they were, you would get at least a 4 star hotel in england for the price we paid for this, in fact the week before in scotland stayed at a macdonald hotel and the price was 90 pounds for 3 nights bed and full scottish breakfast and one evening meal in lovely surrounding with swimming pool gym etc. In the room tea and coffee making facities iron trouser press lovely bright rooms with a lovely bar downstairs everything the Falcon Plazer wasnt, for a lot cheaper. Falcon Plazer advertised a bar but there was no bar the only bar was next door at the Ibis which was a nice bar with nice pleasant happy staff unlike the staff out at Falcon Plazer. 3 shared a room at a cost of 60 euros per person per night i think a bit expensive for what we got. Loved Amsterdam had a ball would go again but not to this hotel

      Stinkotel

      from

      Whoever posted the good reviews must be staff. This hotel should not be allowed to class itself as 3 star. The rooms are small and claustrophobic with no drinking water or teamaking facilities. The bathroom was pokey and smelled of wee wee, its hard to sleep with the aroma of urine constantly up your nostrils. Stayed in many Amsterdam hotels and this has to be the worst by far. To top it all I came in after a great night out on the town at 2 am and I was then asked to settle the bill! I said I would do it in the morning and the chappy on reception became quite insistant, we just ignored him and went to bed. Even worse, a friend who was also staying was getting phone calls from reception at 5 am for the key as it was a fire hazard to keep it in the room, Bizzare! The breakfast was very basic and its presentation did not beg an appetite. I am sure it advertised its own bar, not true the bar belongs to the Ibis which did indeed looked so much nicer. This was a busy weekend for Amsterdam as it was holding a big conference so every hotel was booked up. There was no way we could have got a room anywhere else without the help of the police. Other than that had a great time in such a fantastic city.

      Disgusting hotel!

      from

      Disgusting, whole room very dirty & unhygenic, bed and bedspread filthy and bathroom too, cannot think of anything nice to say about this hotel, especially as it is next door to an IBIS hotel, that looked so much nicer!

      Do not stay here!

      Plenty of tv channels

      from

      Stayed here for 3 nights. Was clean except under the bed which was a bit scummy but nothing too upsetting! good bathroom and shower, with lots of towels which were replaced every day. also a tv which had 30 channels of all languages, just in case you can't keep yourself entertained in amsterdam, which i doubt you'd have a problem with. weird decor in the reception/lobby. breakfast was average continental type but plenty of it.

      A good qualitywell priced hotel

      from

      I have just comeback from a very pleasant stay in Amsterdam - I booked 3 rooms in this hotel online and the price seemd very fair and i was very pleased of the high standards of the hotel and all rooms clean, tidy, good service ,friendly and in a good location of all sights. i will be booking again soon

      Roach Motel

      from

      I have stayed in many European hotels. Some good and some not so good. This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were dingy and dirty. The carpets left our socks BLACK!!The walls had mold & mildew on them. They gave two adults - one bath towel and one face towel. When we asked for another set - it never came.

      We quickly checked out and asked for a refund. The front desk processed our credit but needless to say - it has yet to be processed. I strogly advised whomever rates these hotels to rate this as a NO STAR!!!

      Couldn't stay a night!

      from

      Never stay at this hotel - its tatty, should be condemned, and the staff were extremely rude.Put simply I would not have let my dog stay in the room I was put in, it hasn't been touched since the 60's and it shows, even the linen had holes in it...When I complained and said I was leaving the staff member on the reception desk told me he didn't have time to deal with me as he was eating his dinner, and turned his back on me to do exactly that!We moved next door to the Ibis straight away...

      ... from the canals to the architecture everything is just aesthetically pleasing. I was so impressed by how many bikes there were, although it can get pretty dangerous for tourist pedestrians! Lucky for me, my friend Mike had already been to Amsterdam and had some great places to show me. My favourite of these places was the last standing windmill in Amsterdam that had been converted into a microbrewery. Now I know I'm studying in Germany ...

      I lay there holding her, for some reason I couldn't sleep, or maybe I was and I was dreaming. People came in and out, Wasp, and Paul both entered, apologised and left, I'm not sure if maybe we were on top of ...

      ... and watch out for the bikes. There are only about a half of million of them. My first impression of Amsterdam wasn't favorable. I found the area leading to and around Dam Square debauched and smelly. A word of caution: Amsterdam is a very "Progressive" city. Sex shops are numerous and marijuana smoking is common. (A coffee shop sells marijuana; a coffeehouse sells coffee and a cafe is actually a bar.) I personally don't particularly care for that ...

      ... s sleep, a long workout and a fantastic breakfast, we walk to the Rijksmuseum, recently renovated in a very historic building, and full of wonderful Dutch masters paintings, including some truly amazing masterpieces. Neither of us have seen a large collection of this genre of paintings before, and we love this type of art, so we have a great couple of hours enjoying the collection. We could easily have spent another couple of hours here, but decide ...
