Would rate 0 if possible. We arrived here on Friday morning, was surprised by the seemingly rough area we were based in , litter and graffiti all over the roads. However check in went smoothly, and we went up to our room. Now ... as soon as you get past the doors upstairs is where the dirty ness starts. The halls are unclean and haven’t been painted in years, woodwork falling apart and paintwork flaking away. Not to mention the carpets are ripped and desperate for replacement. The room itself we found basic but ok. Noisy from students drinking and the busy road right outside. Bedsheets clean (although we did wake up a little itchy and you don’t get much of a pillow so neck aching.) We were very impressed with the bathroom, shower nice and pressured and clean. You get a safe inside the wardrobe so that’s great and our room got cleaned Saturday daytime whilst we were out too. Do not bother with the breakfast, they don’t even have a toaster. Coffee terrible, only ham cheese and croissants. Your better off going to a cafe down the road. The staff we found quite rude and unhelpful, ignored you for 5 minutes whilst standing at the desk and then we had to go back 3 times before they handed us a sheet with directions instead of just pointing to the tram station outside (why not just give it the first time?) Kept locking us out of our room with all of our things inside, so that we would go down to the desk to answer a question, why not just knock and ask the question or whilst we’re walking past reception? Whilst on the subject .... the card keys NEVER work and your constantly going up and down to get them working. This seems to be expected as they just take the card and go “oh yeah, what number?” Not a safe feeling here when your doors aren’t locking properly. 20 minutes journey to the city centre when you know which one to get on and cheap tram rides right outside the door is a bonus, the rester aunts beside the hotel are also nice and friendly. Only stay here if you CANNOT afford any better, I wish I had looked elsewhere instead of trusting photos.
This hotel is clean and neat on the inside , the GREAT POINTS : - Has baggage storage - Cool breakfast area - nice wood finishes - very lovely bathrooms - free amsterdam maps - lovely receptionists - directly opposite the markets and mall - close to HALAAL food cons: - the rooms are a tad small which is ok for the price - the passages are super super long so it takes ages to get to your room if its at the end of the passage LOL but not bad All in all i loved it
The hotel is fair for the price. Clean rooms, sheets and nice people. Really close to the tramm that gets you anywhere in the center of the city in 20 min. Has a supermarket and a bakery nearby. breakfast is expensive though
We went to this hotel with 4 persons because of the low price on Booking.com. The entrance is very pretty, but that doesn't last long. We couldn't enter our room until 14 pm, and when we did.. it wasn't cleaned yet. Beds weren't made and we had wet towels. The cleaning service passed later while we went to visit Amsterdam. In the evening, we couldn't put on the light for some bizarre reason. At night, there was a lot of noise thanks to the students in the hotel. The emergency door was open all time at night and we had to close 2 of them. The room was not according to the pictures we saw. Though staff was friendly and helpful.
You get what you pay for. I'd call this a hostel rather than a hotel though. The continental breakfast isn't too bad though although the rooms could be a bit larger. The good thing about it is it is really close to public transport, convenience stores, ATMs and restaurants. The wifi is pretty good however.
Bit old. Carpets need replacing. Cheap and cheerful. Room was clean and came with a fan. Large bathroom. Would stay again. Needs a toaster in breakfast hall. Night staff very nice, shame day staff didn’t hand over that we was arriving at early hours.
very dirty hotel, beds full of insects (mites and fleas), no daily cleaning of the room. not to recommend it absolutely. Our bodies are full of insects bites. There is a Strange smell on tue entire hotel but insects are the worst thing
Stayed for two nights as a group of three, room was clean but a little bit on the small side, as we were not in the room that much it wasnt a major issue. The bathroom was quite modern and clean. From the outside it looks a bit old and dated but dont judge a book. Reception staff were lovely who held our bags for us before check in and after check out. Good transport links with trams and busses on the doorstep. Roughly half an hour into the city. Didnt eat at the hotel so cannot comment on that.
I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group of 50 or so travellers on a Contiki trip. This hotel was selected as the Amsterdam accomodation. We each had quad share rooms. The rooms themselves were tiny. There was no room to move or put your belongings down. This hotel is very much more what I would describe as a hostel than a hotel. In any event, for a budget price I can accept a small room. Also, bathrooms were actually quite good. The horrific part of the stay was that we had bed bugs. And not only did we have bed bugs, most other rooms also had bed bugs. Another 2 groups of 4 had bed bugs not only in their original and replacement rooms. Of these groups, one was offered 2 fresh rooms and found bed bugs in both. The second group was offered one room which also had bed bugs. They were then not offered another room as they were at capacity and had none available and so slept downstairs in the lobby. I didn't discover our room had bed bugs until the day after the first night. I had checked and found nothing but after checking again after sleeping in the bed, I discovered I had bites. We were then given another room which I again checked only to check again before getting into bed hours later to find bugs both inside and ON TOP of the sheets. It is necessary to note that the bed bugs were some ginormous mutant m-f-ers and I've honestly never seen anything like it. I would absolutely not recommend staying at this hotel to anyone. It was a disgrace. Revolting. Poor hygiene. Unacceptable.
Too excited to be in Amsterdam, we were very clear we wanted to stay close to the main square and the tourist places. Nieuw Stotania was once such hotel close to IBIS near the railway station. What amazed us is once you step out, you can see the canal and also an array of parked bicycles, never in my life have I seen so many bicycles parked there. The hotel lobby is nice. The rooms are extremely small, just like any other budget hotel. The rooms were clean though and well maintained. The bath room extremly cramped though. It will be difficult for a heavy person to poop with the door closed. The hotel was close the Amsterdam Square and places like Casa Rosa are at walkable distance from the hotel. It is quite safe as well. I actually did not like the public urinals which were quite open stinky. They were on the way to the Amsterdam square from the hotel so beware. Ambience: 3/5 Service:3/5 PS: I had visited the place in November 2015, but did not have an option therefore have mentioned December 2016
