    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!

    ... 13 year old! She said in some of her writings that she wanted to be a journalist and write a book about the Secret Annex after the war. Her father, the only survivor of her family, used her diaries and journals to compose the Diary of Anne Frank. The home was preserved and now is a museum in her honor. The tour of the museum took us two hours to see everything as it is a very narrow place and the crowd moved slowly. I am ...

    Once again for dinner we ate at a local restaurant outside our hotel. We ate outside as we usually do and once again it started getting chilly. Adam, Ali, and I ordered hot chocolate. We discussed when was the last time we were cold eating outside in August. The conclusion was never. The weather has been nice, but it has not felt like summer living in Europe. ...

    ... I was pleased to find out that they all spoke English.
    The feeling changed when we got to our hotel. Everything that weekend had been booked or insanely expensive so this was the cheapest thing Erin could find. The guy at the reception was rude and unfriendly and when we walked in our room we died laughing because there was only one bed. Not only was there only one bed but it was such a small room that it literally felt like a box. When we ...

    ... 10 minute tram ride from the absolute centre. We headed straight off and into the centre, fabulous city, not as crazy as I imagined, and quite orderly like Germany, maybe in the evening later at night it becomes full on. We walked a fair way taking in the main city centre, decided it would be good to jump on one of the canal boats, and see some of the hundreds of canals! There are in fact over 2000 houseboats and 150 canals ...

    ... in the grand scheme of things.

    I had a great time exploring the controversial district. I am glad I did my research and that it was much nicer than what I imagined it to be. The biggest negative was the fact that we all totally forgot about the time change until we were out on the street at 4 am!

    The next morning we were all totally exhausted and all we could think about were pancakes. We found a wonderful pancake house Amy and I split pancakes ...
