Terrible

I don't know which was worse: the total lack of service, the absence of any amenities (including a single bar of soap), the lack of adequate light for reading (even in the daytime), et cetera. The hotel probably beats a bench in the park, but not by much.

a nice hotel for a reasonable price

We stayed at the Avenue hotel for 3 nights. Shopping and alot of sightseeing and going to museums. Our room was quite small, but all in all comfortable enough to sleep and rest our feet in. The bathroom could've been a bit more clean, but hey the shower worked well and towels got changed. A bit squeaky but comfortable beds. The staff were really friendly and helpful! Breakfast buffet was pretty ordinary, but the food was good enough. Terribly slow elevator! I'd recommend staying at this hotel for a few nights if you're planning a visit in the lovely town.

Functional Hotel

The hotel has a great location, 2 blocks from the main train station, close to the canal downtown area and Dam square. Breakfast wasn't the best, but there was a lot of variety and they did not run out of things. Staff was very helpful and multi-lingual. Room was clean but had no extra amenities such as a hair dryer or an iron. Good value for the price.

Ideal hotel for that short break away

Excellent location, turned on my satellite GPS to find the hotel from Central station but this was not necessary as the hotel was a 5 min walk. Brilliant breakfast and the hotel itself was cosy and welcoming.

Small room, great location

Very smooth experience staying in this hotel. It's a short walk from the Amsterdam Central station, which was great to get settled in quickly after arduous travel. The room was small and the shower was not fully enclosed, which led to some splashing on the sink area. Nevertheless, the water pressure in the shower was good and the beds were extremely comfortable. Great for recovering from a full day of walking, and all the great sites of Amsterdam were easily reachable from this location. Breakfast was included during our stay which was simple meats, rolls, toast, fruits, coffee, tea, and juice, which was definitely great for starting the day right.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

We considered taking the canal bus tour as a hop on hop off way to get around Amsterdam, but the high cost for the ticket and timing between arrivals of the boat were not in our favor. We opted to walk instead and although longer it was good exercise and we had ample time to hit all the sites we wanted to visit on our list.

Quick stop

I spent two nights in the Avenue and it was a good value for the price. The location was awesome with perfect walk distances to the train, bars, shopping and museums. The staff varied from extremely friendly to extremely smug. I would definitely stay there again.

Hotel Avenue July 6th & 7th 2012

Good experience. Great Location (really within walking distance of all of the thinks I wanted to see, i.e., Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Dam Square, Canel walks, Central train station, etc.). Upgraded to double for free. Wonderful Breakfast Buffet. My room was on the first floor and it (first floor) smelled a little musty when in the hallway. Room however was fine. Everyone on staff was very helpful and courteous.
