Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
After lunch we went into the Dungeon. This was an interesting way to pass an hour and be introduced to the atrocities of Amsterdam in the 1500's. it was a very good tour through the dungeon with a lot of interaction between the younger Germans and the cast of the dungeon. We had a number of people take us through the areas and finish with a roller …
Wow! It was a busy day today! We left our Hotel on the east side of town and headed west to find our new hotel for our last night in Amsterdam. We tried to catch the tram but it ended up being closed due to construction so we walked. It wasn't too bad; it was much closer than we thought. We got upgraded to a room with a balcony which was an awesome …
Well, the day finally arrived, it felt like a dream, boarding the big Iceland air plane. The language was funny and something I never heard before. I was a bit scared in the initial "leaving of my mom" but once I was boarding the plane, I felt ramped up and ready to go! From the first moment I stepped on the plane I knew it was going to be a great …
Vickit stayed here on Jul 13, 2013 during their trip titled: Vicki and Ian European adventure June/July 2013.
Started today with breakfast at our strange little hotel, although the clientele today seemed a little more mainstream than what we observed yesterday! Then we headed over to the Anne Frank house....so very sad and disturbing...but it feels like a duty to mankind and decency to look at the atrocities in order to believe that we would never let it …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Where to start, Ossam, the manager has always taken care of me from day one. I'm a loyal customer to Nadia as I can't imagine finding comfort and service anywhere else in A-dam like this! He always makes sure Im comfortable and get what I want. Rooms are always clean and beds are very comfortable.
Don't look any further, just book now!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nadia Amsterdam
after spending 2hours or so walking up and down the wrong canal!
Hmmm...... Sardines anyone ???
Well..... no complaints about the staff, all very freindly. But be warned !! the stairs are a definate NO GO for anyone with leg problems ! If you are chosing one of the cheaper rooms as we did (we paid about £55 a night for a double room) dont expect anything too glamerous. Yes, the rooms are clean enough, but dont take more than 1 luggage bag, or that will end up sleeping in the bed with you(2 seperate singles pushed together, oh.. and they were both different heights !). That aside, if your just looking for a conveniant stop point in the center, without spending more time than necessary in the hotel - then this will be okay for you.
Overrated, Do Not Stay There
After reading the below reviews, we booked a double room w/ private bathroom for 103 euros at the Nadia Hotel. We had to walk 60+ steep narrow steps to the front desk. We arrived at 10am and was told to come back at 1pm for check in. We came back at 1pm, but our room was not ready. We waited in the small breakfast room along with 2 other parties. We waited for 45 mins until our room was ready. The room was TINY and the bathroom was even more TINY. I hated the shower because it was right next to the toilet, so when you shower all the water flows on top of the toilet. It was dirty, I had to put a towel on the floor before I showered. The shower was not separated from the toilet. The blanket cover smelled like weed.
Good value for the money
I spent a few months in this hotel and it proved to be just like my work colleagues told me it would be: "small rooms but very clean and leaving a good souvenir". I often got a double room for the price of a single one whenever single rooms were not available and as I stayed for a longer than usual period I could negociate a discount. I would have liked a richer breakfast but I think it's acceptable given the price. I appreciated its location close to the city center (Dam square), the equipment (TV, fridge) and the attitude of the staff, always ready to help.
Within Staggering Distance..
Lets see. Stayed a week at the Nadia in 2001 & booked it through ... They did pull a quick switch-a-roo the first 2 days and we had to stay in a cheaper, extra-small, alley-view room (at a reduced rate). They then moved us over to the balcony room that we booked. Staff was friendly and efficient. Sadly, never made it out of bed in time for breakfast. Beware of the typical canal staircase.
Even though I only saw the inside of my Room at Hotel Nadia for short periods of time, I am pretty sure in saying it is the best room they have. At first it was misleading by the proximity to the front desk and stairwell. I thought I would definitely be in for some noise. But not at all.
My wife and I stayed at the Nadia Hotel in June for 4 nights, I do not
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Nadia for 5 days this spring and it was my first trip to Amsterdam. I am glad I chose this hotel because of its central location!! Near the Centraal Station and most of the attractions in the city. It is near everything and yet you are not where evrybody is ( I mean Dam Square, the busy streets like Kalverstraat, Ledestraat, etc is literally teeming with people!!!)- so it is quiet and it is also by a canal. Near all the shopping areas, too!! The staff-- they were very helpful, courteous and help you in every way to make you feel at home. The steep stairway was not a problem at all because as soon as you get there somebody will carry your luggage for you. Also, no boisterous groups to keep you awake. I would definitely recommend this place - very reasonably priced, too.
Ahh Nadia Hotel, occupied by my travel partner & myself 2/4/03 - 9/4/03. Fantastic location with 5 min proximity to all major tourist attractions. The staff were wonderful & very informative, attended to all matters requested. Rooms quaint and serviced daily (really clean!!), which is comforting when abroad. Definate value for money, afterall it is Amsterdam. Highly recommended to all.
My husband, children and I stayed for 5 nights at Nadia Hotel while in Amsterdam. The hotel added to the whole experience of the city. The staff were always friendly and will to help in whatever way they could, from tourist information to local shopping and restaraunts. The room was always clean to the level of a 5 star hotel no matter how messy my children made it. The staff also organised a baby sitter one night so my husband and I could be alone and in peace for a change.The location of the hotel is excellent with everything in walking distance. We have stayed in 5 star hotels throughout Europe but never have we enjoyed our stay as much as we did at the Nadia Hotel. The room was small but fully equipped with everything you needed when you are away from home. Our family will return time and time again to the the Nadia Hotel.
