Very goodBased on  141  reviews

    Fabulous

    Room was large as I had twin room with ensuite. I belive there may be only two such rooms. Great for trams. Walked to Rijksmuseum and a 20min walk to Anne Frank. Included breakfast was ample if not dull. Warning: the initial step are the steepest I have experience while in Amsterdam: they go almost streaight up leading from lobby. I have friends that would not make the climb. Yes, I would stay at this property due to it's location. And, even being steps from the Leiderstatt, the noice level was not distracting at night. Enjoy.

    Superb

    Pleasant and helpful staff, clean facilities, comfy bed. The location was excellent, close to a lot of restaurants and right next to the city center. Breakfast was more than we had hoped for: toast, ham, eggs, juice and coffee. Will stay there again the next time I go to Amsterdam

    Superb

    Ability to come and go as you please and that you had your own key to the hotel

    Although the room was not ensuite, and I fully realised thisat the time of booking, it could have so easily been so, as there was enough room for a small ensuite, other wise the toilet and showers were well kept and very clean,

    Superb

    Good size room, great location and view of street, friendly service, good breakfast, WiFi worked good too. Very relaxing and enjoyable stay, very helpful staff.

    The stairs are incredibly steep... Quite hard to lug a rucksack up!

    the location

    the stairs...we were warned about the stairs but they were worse than my wildest imagination...would not go back just because of the stairs.

    Very good

    The staff were very helpful. The room was very comfortable. The hotel has a great location.

    Part of having a great location is that there was some street noise that went late at night on Friday and Saturday nights. The stairs can be a challenge to navigate with luggage.

    Good

    the person Dave in acception is super nice, and another is nice as well. They all love bear.....

    It is really unconvience to share toilet, if you dont care that is ok.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Although pricey, it was a decent hotel close to most amenities, and Dave the receptionist was a real character. I was surprised with the fact it wasnt exclusively gay, but under trying times it is understandable I suppose they take in none gay clients to make ends meet.

    The price was the reason I only stayed two nights and not the full 4 nights I was in amsterdam

    Good

    Location

    The staff was not the most courteous and helpful.. Checking in felt like we were interrupting their life and they just had to deal with us because they had to. Needless to say, we did not ask anything from the staff during the entire stay. I would only recommend this hotel only if it was the last option in Amsterdam.

    Perfect location and nice staff.

    The room was old-fashioned, worn-out towels and linen. I woud say it is not a good value for money.

    Very good

    staff were friendly and helpful. location good

    The room i had was a shared facilities room, however these were one flight up which was not convenient. The whole place though clean could do with a good make over and redecoration!

    Guest rating

    The location is superb as was the breakfast.

    The rooms were in need of some remodeling and a good clean. The shared bathroom was not very clean and had no shampoo or soap, nor was any made available. One member of staff was very disinterested with an issue I raised about severe noise coming from another section of the hotel and so my own comfort was not seen as being a priority.

    Fabulous

    the location was great, very central

    the stairs were treacherous, very noisy at night,
