Save your money!
I´m 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!!
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
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 Â£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!
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 Â£60 a night for four of us its acceptable.
Hairy bedspreads and hairy shower
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
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?
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?
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!

... but he never found his soul mate. I wonder if many artists struggle with this. I wonder if I struggle with this. As Frankie and all of my friends seem to say lately I am utterly romantic at heart. So I believe in concepts like my soul mate but does that concept exist? It's an interesting thought....
I still felt a kinship with this artist although we come from such different worlds. Perhaps you always find that with creative people. There is something about us...we ...
... Before going to our train to Antwerp we had a round tour on the Grand Amsterdam Hotel. We were shown around and had lunch with Kees Hogetoorn, Director of Sales and Marketing - and this was definitley not just any lunch. It was a one Michelin star restaurant lunch - and it was nothing less than fantastic. After lunch and a couple of fantastic drinks made by a former European Champion in Cocktails (and they were SO good!) we went to the train and went to ...
... 10 years – 1880–1890 – during which time he produced about 1,110 drawings and 900 paintings. The Van Gogh museum is the most important collection of his work in the world – and contains 200 paintings, 500 drawings and many letters, most of which were written to his younger brother Theo. It’s stunning to see what Vincent created in 10 years – the self-portraits; the landscapes; the countryside in Arles; the many flowers. We learn ...
Monday March 16th Didn't sleep too bad on the ship considering I was just falling asleep and suddenly thought "What if it sinks." I reasoned with myself and decided that if the boat sank I'd get wet and it might save time in the morning because I wouldn't need a shower. We were heading ultimately to Amsterdam but had three stopovers on the way, first stop Helsingborg, but we had to get there. We left Gothenburg heading south, Amanda had done a bit of research and found a couple of ...
... from the groups of creepy male tourists in the city centre, De Pijp is the melting pot of cultures with a youthful spirit. It is friendly, has a warm soul against the cold outdoors and the locals are friendly and welcoming. The only cranky locals seem to be the older women in the bakeries who have little time for our lack of speaking Dutch and our indecision on what to order...we are overwhelmed by choice. Don ...
