Historical Traveler Reviews TRYP By Wyndham Poet Amsterdam
We stayed in this hotel in January - there were six in our group - different ages and expectations - we were all thoroughly delighted with the hotel. The people that run it are very helpful and tell you the best places to visit. The rooms are very clean if a little bit small - but lets face it all you do is sleep in there! There is a tram stop at the end of the road which can take you into the centre of Amsterdam in a matter of minutes. If you come out of the hotel and turn right a couple of hundred yards down there is a school where the children are not fenced in - very refreshing to see. All in all we enjoyed our stay and are going back in August.
DON'T GO IF YOU'RE TALL!
Clean, basic, tiny room with good bathroom and more than adequate breakfast. Biggest drawback was the beds - I'm 6'3" and had to put the mattress on the floor to sleep, as the bed was way too short, leaving my feet dangling over the cheap wooden footboard. Good location, friendly staff. It's a low price hotel, so dont expect luxury, but if you're on a tight budget this will do nicely. The bed will prevent me from returning though.
Will definintely go back!
Just returned from Amsterdam. Spent three nights at this hotel and I can't say one bad thing. Rooms although small are very clean and breakfast is buffet style - eat as much as you like - we did! Staff were really helpful and the location is dead central - 5 mins walk from Van Gogh and Rijks-museums and 1 stop to Leidesplein - all the bars, cafes and restaurants you want! You have to go to Boom Chicago! - it's the funniest show I've seen in a while - absolutely brilliant and cheap pitchers of beer! We'd definitely recommend staying at this hotel!
Great value for money. Enjoy Amsterdam!
The Acro is a great hotel in a great location, with friendly staff and clean rooms. If you're lucky, get one of the large twins with a balcony at the front of the hotel. The all you can eat breakfast is included and can fill you up for the day. Additionally, you can get a local bus to the airport from the tram/bus stop at the top of the road - and the hotel will sell you a strippenkart.
just spent 2 nights at the acro hotel amsterdam,well satisfied.rooms really clean,relaxing bar,nice food and friendly staff.would definatley go back.cheers.
We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Acro hotel. The position of the hotel is within walking distance of the Vondel Park, and the Rijks museum and the Van Gogh museum. Also, 5 minutes walk away is the Canal boat trip (A must). We enquired at the Hotel reception about a city bus tour, but were told it wasnt worth the money as the streets are so narrow the bus cannot get close enough to the major sights. The canal boat however pulls up alongside sites like the Anne Frank house, and all the major buildings built alongside the canal banks. It was so good we did the trip twice, and it is half the cost of the bus tour! A wonderful city to walk round and explore for a weekend, and a very adequate budget hotel to stay. Definately worth a second stay in a few years.
Great location - terrible hotel
I always stay in budget hotels when I travel and this is by far the worst budget hotel I've ever experienced. I booked a single and, as usually happens, was given a twin. However there is no way two people could possibly share this room. It was tiny! I had to climb over the beds to open and close the curtains. The guy at reception the evening I arrived was busy chatting on his mobile phone while I just stood there waiting. His manner was very curt. The noise level at night was horrendous - guests coming in at 3 and 4am shouting and laughing as they climbed up the noisy steep stairs. The fire alarm went off, apparently accidentally, at 2.30am and the guy on duty proceeded to run up and down stairs while talking on the phone. There was no shampoo or shower gel in the room. The liquid soap dispenser was empty. The only saving grace for this hotel was its location next to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.
excellent hotel, would definitely recommend staying here. tram stop at end of the road which is useful, catch the number 5 tram from centraal stn to 'hobbemastraat'. hotel staff very friendly, even the maids. very clean and tidy rooms, satellite tv, only negative would be that the breakfast is a bit basic and no tea making facilities in rooms. also be careful with the showers, the water is scalding hot!
Exellent, , Very Good Location
We stayed at " hotel Acro" for easter week, one twin bed room ( about £60 per night) and the hotel rooms and bathroom is "spotless" the staff very friendly and helpfull, the room are "quite big" (ie: like the hilton in the states !!) no i'm not kidding !! the "location" is "superb!!" you can walk 20 minutes and you are leidensplein!!!!!! i'm quite fussy with my hotels but this one.... two thumbs up !!!! highly recomanded for sighseeing and a relax week end !!

Had a great time at the Hotel Acro. We we a large mixed group. The staff were very helpful and we would recommend the hotel to anyone who wishes to spend time in Amsterdam.

... Now, 8 hours later. We had a little (much needed) sleep, and then set out for a LONG walk. I had no idea what to expect of Amsterdam - Red Light/Marijuana. BUT - what a beautiful city. Not a tall city like Sydney, but very European with all the cobblestone streets, and little back alleys. There is a maze of canals criss-crossing through the city. Went through the Palace ...
... were walking through the open doors. So having checked that item off our Amsterdam to do list we decided to head home and call it a night.
The next morning we stuck fairly close to the apartment doing a little shopping in the boutiques and waiting to see if the threat of rain was really going to materialize or not. Once we were confident that the weather would hold out (fairly well at least) we headed back over to the Museum square to check out the Van ...
... the other orange. We ten had desert morris z& rulee (they were eating a set menus) had bread in butter pudding and it was the best custard bread & butter pudding I have ever ever tasted it was filled with sultanas that apparently are soaked in alcohol like a schnapps and we ordered a apple strudel also we all shared our yummy desserts and then ( Benjamin) gave us a shot of the schnapps and told us about his visit to Australia it was ...
Today we went by train to the nearby town of Haarlem, 20 minutes west of Amsterdam. This town is the origin of the name of America's Harlem, back when New York was New Amsterdam, a Dutch colony. For centuries, Haarlem has been a market town. Saturday is market day in the town's main square - Grote Markt (Market Square). A very colorful, interesting market, flanked by cafés and shops; the beautiful Grote Kerk (Great Church) of St. Bravo; an interesting Town Hall built from ...
... and definitely belied the deliciousness of many of the them. The next morning I said goodbye to all but 7 of my tour mates who were driving back to London that day. It was super sad to say goodbye to such awesome new friends, although thanks to things like Facebook, I know we will all stay in contact. I had such a good time overall that I would definitely recommend a camping tour for anyone that wants to do a contiki. We all got so close from having to hang out ...
