                            nice cosy hotel, wonderfully situated right in the midst between everything you want to see and experience in amsterdam. the already mentioned staircase are indeed a challenge for people with very big and heavy suitcases, but to me had the charm you expect in old amsterdam buildings.

                            Really good situation for gay life! You feel like home :)

                            Stairs are not a real problem, but if you travel with 50 kilos of luggage, maybe yes.

                            The location is unbeatable!!! If you want to enjoy your night life and shopping, this is the right place for you to stay.

                            Location, it was not difficult to find and right in the middle of a nightlife/shopping area.

                            Things in the room were worn out and/or too old and used, particularly curtains, carpet and the windows, which could not be completely closed, so I had to hear the noise from the busy street all night long. The stairs are defiinitely dangerous, too narrown and windy that it was a balancing act just to go up and down. Breakfast was all about bread and a bit poor. Definitely no value at all for the expensive money they charge, the reviews I've read here were so misleading, I will not reccommend this hotel as this was the most expensive and worst stay of my trip to 8 European cities. I was so disappointed.

                            Great location and close to the bars and clubs

                            Breakfasts can get very boring

                            Fantastic situation, in the very center of Amsterdam. Clean and large rooms, good breakfast.

                            This section of Kerkstrat is sometimes noisy on Friday or Saturday night, as there stands some cofeeshops and restaurants . Consider this point if you have trouble to go back to sleep.

                            The staff were very helpful and friendly, generous breakfast with a choice and great central location

                            I was on 3rd floor so you need to be fit to manage the dutch style narrow steep stairs but I found this a quirky challenge and amusing

                            Good location, nice views. Quiet.

                            It took me 5 minutes to figure out the light in the shower. The common shower was so-so. The outer door could not be locked from the inside.

                            Very conveniently located and within walking disatnce from all major sites.

                            Very steep stairs but that was part of the 'fun' of staying here.

                            Clean, good location, friendly and helping staff. Spacy rooms. We traveled in a group and each person got a separate key to enter the room. Great breakfast, with attention to small details.

                            Because of the central location, the rooms at the street side might suffer some street noise. The stairs (most read negative remark) are indeed quite challenging but were not a real problem once you get used to them.

                            Nice, ideally situated. The stairs are indeed stip but the value for money factor makes up for it.

                            The staff was very friendly and the location is great, near the night life in Amsterdam (Leidseplein). Breakfast was good (not buffet except for the coffee); toast with butter, marmalade, cheese and bacon with coffee or tea and juice. The double room was big enough and comfortable with a shower, but without WC. The toilet was shared but was clean and no problem to share with the others. Very clean except for our pillow case. We had a key to enter the hotel at any time without problem which is a great privacy.

                            The stairs are crazy - pack light and steep! The double bed is actually two single beds put together.

                            Horrible!! The worst hotel i´ve ever been, actually it is not a proper hotel I could call it "cheap pension", The staff was so unfriendly!! No helpful at all and so arrogant especially the old guy. Breakfast was not buffet, was only a watery coffe, 2 slices of cheese and some bread, Thats all!!! The gave us such a small room ( no more than 10 meters) in the top floor, I knew toilet wasn´t in the room but didnt know was in another floor!! Terrible!! You have to climb through the very strech stairs to go up to the 3er floor And was not a gay hotel, I saw some girls and straight couples. I definatly not recommend this "cheap pension", you better run away!!!!

                            Breakfast starts at 8:30 AM. Therefore, anyone with an early departure is not accommodated. When I asked if this could be modified to obtain even a cup of coffee before leaving, the answer was no.
