Decent Budget Hotel

Hotel room was clean and tidy with good facilities although a fridge in our room would have been a bonus. For the price can't complain and it was only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Amsterdam. Gets a thumbs up from us!

Happy

I had booked the holiday for my partners 30th birthday - I had emailed the hotel in advance to request some balloons etc for the room. My partner was happily surprised when he arrived so thanks for doing that! We were in room 118 and it was massive, though it's not a room if you want a room with a view - not a problem for us as we were out and about all day. The room was immaculate! We did not have a lot of dealings with staff but when we did they were friendly and professional. It's not right in the centre but it is across the road from the zoo and the tram runs right by it. We walked everywhere. Only downside was that it was 2 single beds pushed together and rather then try to join them together as other hotels I have been in they left them as single which was a bit of pain but not the end of the world. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to others.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you love Indian Food definitely give Gandhis a shout on the Damrak - you have to walk down an alley which is shared with a sauna but don't let that put you off! and order the lamb! mmm. Also pop into the local shop and buy some Chocomel!!!

Freindly, helpful staff

The staff were fabulous and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Regrettably, the room was cramped and some of the services were lacking...for example the TV in the room didn't work and there was no soap in the bathroom.

Family Get Away

Rooms a bit small. Have walk through bathroom to get in and out of room. Not great for privacy. TV's not tuned in, so got snow vision. Breakfast poor value for money. Had breakfast a few doors down in a great little café. Would recommend this. Good coffee facilities and great staff. Would stay again, but the hotel does a refurbishment

Inexpensive

looking at all the super expensive hotels in Amsterdam this one is very basic, nbot far from the city center, trma stations are half a block away so you'll get to tourist places in 15 min, Free wifi and free coffe, all the basic stuff you need you'll get here for a good value and it's even better if you traveling with a samll group of friends
