    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Manofa Amsterdam

    Save your money!

    from

    Im sure this hotel is a part of criminal organisations, while i stayed there at least 3 passes were stolen. People were walking in and out of the hotel all the time, may i say suspicious people at the least! Walked to the reception, got a key, went in to the hotel and came out about 5 minutes later. I was sitting for an hour or so in the reception room (yeah they got a sofa there!!) and alot of kids (local it seemed) went in and out like they had an agreement to go in and loop passports. You are safer to keep the passports on you than in this hotel!!

    Fecal- Vision

    I am sure there are more revolting places to sleep, but I certainly don't think they cost over 100 euros a night. It smelled hideous, the carpets were toxic, sticky, and stained with god-knows-what, the "breakfast" in the overpriced hotel downstairs (which we found out was included accidentally) is just cereal and old ham and cheese, the towels were yellow and smelled of cigarettes, the bed was wobbly and the linens filthy, there are no elevators in a 4th floor walk up, no soap at all in the bathroom, the shower curtain was gooey and slimey, and 3 people of our group had their passports stolen from their rooms. There is a sign behind the front desk that says they are not responsible for any items left anywhere o othe premises, presumably so they can make a few extra euros off lifting passports. The pictures on their website are a best-case-scenario, possibly the only good thing that can be said is that the bathroom fixtures seem to have been installed in the last couple of years, and the there was tv, albeit fuzzy. The location is very convenient, but there are about a million other hotels in the area so don't bother with this one.

    Just don't do it

    from

    Paid 25 Euros\person for 6 in one room. Went to top floor. 4 flights up and not even any hot water!!Paid a bit more 5 euros each then got moved to the second floor ensuite - where we found a mouse. It was in our food. Lost £50 worth just like that.Mgt couldn't care less when we complained. There are plenty of better places to go.

    No rats in my room!

    from

    ok so its no paris ritz, but for location and price it is very good. no rats in our room, beds were clean and so was the shower. for £60 a night for four of us its acceptable.

    Hairy bedspreads and hairy shower

    from

    Rooms were dirty and we had to change our own bedlinen when we complained. Watch out for the bloke on the desk, he'll make you pay before you stay. My friends have stayed in a nice room here last year, but if they try and lumber you with a ground floor room, just don't bother. Very central location for the money though.

    ROUGHER THAN A GRANNIES GRIFTER

    from

    May i advise anyone who thinks about booking the Manofa hotel to save themself their money and health by reading the following:-You would be better off sleeping round the back of CS with the junkies than in any room in the Manofa. As previous reviews have said, this hotel clearly has a rodent problem, i stayed there in 2002 and found rats about 2cm from my sleeping wifes head! I found the staff to be rude and inconsiderate, the 'so called' manager was also rude and aggresive. DO NOT STAY HERE!

    Ack. Could this be worse?

    from

    Could this place be any grosser?! I woke up to the nibble-nibble of a rodent inside my backpack eating my trail mix. The fire alarm had some horrible red schmeared stuff on it I tried very hard not to look at, chuncks of plaster where falling off the wall, the carpet was absolutely disgusting AND it was freakin' expensive! Completely horrible. DO NOT STAY HERE.

    There's a rat in my bedroom what am I gonna do?

    from

    Rats in the bedroom, need I say more? Do not stay here if you care about your health. I do not know how this place is classed as 2 stars: dirty floors, dirty beds, bad smell in the room etc. Not even an apology when we informed them of the rodent problem!

    ... the girls while driving in Italy and France. Turns out Adele's class had studied Anne Frank earlier this year, so she delighted in showing off her knowledge to her big sisters. So we found our way there, and no surprise, there was a very long queue. We decided we would try out luck later in the afternoon. Instead we found a nearby canal cruise and had a delightful afternoon taking in the sights. Back to Anne Frank's house at 6pm, and the queue was no shorter. We spent an hour in ...

    Today marks the day celebrating our parents 26th wedding anniversary! As we traveled to visit our Tante Betty in Castricum via train, I thought about how it was their celebration of their 25th anniversary celebration the previous year that inspired our family trip to Europe in the first place. Their phenomenal trip to Italy last year was so pleasant in every respect (mostly due to the fact that they had gelato at least once a ...

The Italians didn't speak English, and we didn't speak Italian however there were two guides and they spoke both languages. There was a crew of 4 as well. We had 4 electric bikes and 1 ordinary bike. They were all in almost brand new condition.
    Each evening after the evening meal we had a ...

    Tomorrow, we stop in Belgium and then take the ferry to the U.K. where we'll all part our separate ways. Tears will be shed. Already have my ...

    ... them on Friday for our week long trip up the Rhine to Basel. We have learned a lot about the history of the Netherlands and the unique geography of their dikes and canals. We have also learned to be very careful of the bikes and motorscooters. There are over 60,000 bikes in Amsterdam. They have their own lanes and one must be very aware and crossing the streets to watch for cars, buses, trams, bikes and scooters. We utilized the hop on – hop ...
