Claustrophobia in Amsterdam

The location is on a tram line and is about 1 mile from the train station. We booked the hotel for one night before leaving on a river cruise. The room was very tight, even by European standards. You could actually rest your head on the wall in front of you while sitting on the commode.

Hotel was nice

The 15 euro breakfast is rediculous, there are a lot of shops around that serve breakfast.the staff was helpful, the beds were horrible, location was great, I think the good outweighs the bad, If you plan to watch television, all they have you will understand is BBC and animal planet.

Small but Clean

Vacationing in Amsterdam, Eden Lancaster Hotel was in a residential area (very quiet). The room and bathroom were very clean; but the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. We arrived before the room was ready; there was a closet to leave your luggage.

We recommend using the Tram system, it is very effecient. The 9 & 14 trams drop you off a half a block from the hotel; til midnight, then use the bus sytem.

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.

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.

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.
