It' a nice hotel for a short stay.

It was nice hotel with nice room, except that you don't get WI FI in your room only in the reception. And I was staying in a room with 4 bedrooms alone.

Legit Hotel

Very nice hotel for being in sketchy Amsterdam. It is about a 10min walk from Centraal station and Red Light District and isnt too 'central' like the info says about it, but it is probably better to be just far enough away from areas like Red Light. We walked around most of the time but there are metro stops all around the hotel and are an easy way to get around the city. The rooms were nice and clean, just a bit small though for how much you pay for them but it wasnt a big deal. It is right next to the zoo so if you want something cool to do just stroll across the street and check it out. There are a few coffee shops close by and a nice little park next door to the hotel where you can enjoy your purchases. They have an info stand that has a bunch of different things to do around the city but we had to ask the front desk for a map which was by far the most useful. (tells you shopping areas, dining areas, museums as well as info about them and different attractions) The breakfast should have been included and cost about $15 euro which was pretty weak. I recommend take a 5 min walk and find a Dutch bakery which has delicious pastries and waffles for just a few euro. The only other complaint is that their toilets are 'shelf' toilets so when you go it doesnt go into water it just sits there which is pretty gross. Overall very happy with this hotel and would definitly go back.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

If your looking for something besides the Red Light district check out Rembrandt plaza which has a bunch of bars clubs and restaurants. There were a lot more local and cool people around there rather than the dirty sketchy side streets around RLD

Economical except for parking

Not suitable for those with mobility issues . . . steps everywhere. A little difficult to find; directions were not very good. Staff friendly but all the amenities were overpriced and the rooms themselves are VERY tiny. Nevertheless, very clean, with a fair price, easy access to the city by light rail system, and a decent buffet breakfast (not included in the Orbitz price). Suitable for young tourists, preferrably without a car.

Don't rent a car for your Amsterdam stay. Use the light rail as much as possible. Parking here is prohibitively expensive and space is difficult to find in the first place.

Eden Lancaster Hotel

Good hotel for the price, the tram is easy to take and is nearby, or if you like to walk you can walk to some sites.Location is in a safe area, however, it is not right in the City Center. The rooms are very small, but neat and clean. Staff was very helpfull. Hotel is across the street from the Zoo and also next to a small park.

great location - little pricey

On arrival we had to move our own baggage up to 2nd floor lobby, then into walk up closet when room was not ready. Misdirections were given to off-site restaurant. We thought that the on-site breakfast was complementary (web page advertisement not clear)and only found out that this was not true on check out that the breakfast was 30e/day. Clerk made a comment that we had such a "cheap" rate, we couldn't expect complimentary food! Room staff were wonderful and fixed some problems in the room for us that was not taken care of by desk clerk. We did not realize that the hotel encompasses 2 buildings in depth and our nice front room turned into a rear room about 100 feet from the elevator and a back yard view of the neighboring buildings and roofs.

Amazing deal! great hotel

The hotel was only 20 bucks more than a hostel were you sleep with 8 people in the same room. The hotel s near center to walk or a super fast tram that stops in front of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the room furnished very well. The rooms are small but it is the same at all hotels in amsterdam. they let me check out at 2 pm with no problems. Great stay!! I have stayed in hotels twice ad thrice the price and preferred this one.. book it !!

Leafy quiet area for convenient hotel.

Welcoming reception staff greeted my arrival in a older style building neatly decorated. My room was small but very clean and practical. Good quiet location within walking distance of the central area of the city made for an ideal, value-for-money overnight stay.

Clean, nice, directly by the Artis Zoo

Walls a bit thin, very clean and nice inside. Great location next to the Artis Zoo with a short walk to a canal stop. Family room had 4 twins but a shower instead of a bathtub. Very helpful staff. Close to atm, food, and a small market.

If you have kids checkout TonFun, an underground steelpark not too far from the hotel. Huge play area and only about 8 euros per kid.
