Hotel Nieuw Slotania2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The floor boards in the room were broken. There was a bit of a funny smell. There was free wifi. It is located by public transport so getting in to the main part of town is easy. The breakfast was not like you would get in Canada or the USA (ie it's not like a continental breakfast). I stayed here as part of a tour. If I go back to Amsterdam, I will not stay here.
Stayed here with a friend to begin interrailing. Room was very hot and no air con, and the staff were generally unhelpful. The location was also poor - to get to the city centre of Amsterdam you need to take a bus or tram which takes at least 30 minutes. That said, our room was very clean and the bathroom was actually surprisingly luxurious for a hostel dorm. Although Amsterdam is a notoriously expensive city, you can do better for the money.
The hotel is located at an extremely busy intersection so expect alot of noise.You can get the bus to the airport right outside the front door.The hallway was noisy while we were their due to ongoing renovations.The wi fi was free and with a good signal. The room was clean, the shower was very nice and modern. The room was cleaned daily
I stayed there for 2 nights for a last minute business trip, as most of the hotels close to the city were booked up. The location is average, you must take a 30-40 minute tram/bus to reach the city centre. The room itself is basic enough, no kettle which I think should be included for over 100€ a night! The room was clean but the hall is very dirty. The carpet is terribly stained, the paint is chipped off all the walls and it has a very weird smell. There is also no air-con which makes it impossible to sleep in nearly 30 degrees weather. Opening the window is also very uncomfortable as the main road is very busy. I tried to contact this hotel by phone and it took over FIVE calls to get through to them! It is supposed to have staff on reception 24/7 but you often have to wait a lengthy time for a staff member to show up at the desk. I would not return, you can definitely do better for your money.
Good points, clean room, bed linen, towels, comfy bed, and helpful staff. As for the rest, to say this hotel is rundown is an understatement. There is a bar that doesn't look as if it has been used for years. What looks like a conference/ballroom cordoned off it is stacked with mattresses. The corridor carpet is filthy, and I do mean filthy. The place you eat your breakfast is in the basement, dull, brown, poorly lit, and the flooring taped down. No air con, no tea/coffee making facilities, and no fridge. This hotel needs money spending on it!!!! Do I need to continue? I think not, just don't go there!!!!!
I stayed there for two nights this week. It's not bad, but it's not great either. The rooms are extremely hot at night and very stuffy. It's mainly filled with kids on contiki tours, so if you're young, you'll enjoy your stay. I don't think it's pleasant for older people. It's a decent hotel if you're only in the city for a short stay.
This hotel is not located conveniently in Amsterdam for the price. The room was constantly hot with no airflow to it, even with the slight opening on the window it had which made it impossible to sleep. It was very small, and very uncomfortable. The hallway to our room was so long it is hard to describe. The bike hire was expensive and the bikes are not maintained and had to swap bikes 3 times due to things going wrong with them. The member of staff on the front desk were helpful but the eftpos machine did not work so we had to pay cash which was inconvenient, and one member was sitting on the couch with his iPad and earphones in and we waited for service but they were non attentive. Overall unsatisfied.
I must be mad by paying 80€ for a bed in dorm!! Hotel was old and not clean, room is just barely functioning. You pay only for a bed, there is not even a place to put your bath tower in the toilet... To be fair the location is okay. It has tram link to city centre (dam square), although you need sit on the tram for a good 1/2 hr. If I visit AMS next time, I will definitely look for other options.
Location The area is not too bad and has places you can explore if you are a tourist. The train also runs right in front of the hotel which is very convenient. Atmosphere You can tell the building is old but they do a good job keeping it clean. I believe there are 2 levels of rooms and breakfast is served downstairs of the lobby. room I was surprised how clean my room was. I shared it with 3 other females. There were 2 bunk beds and I was pleased with the amount of space we had in the room. I probably just got lucky with the room I got. The bathroom was clean as well. The only problem I had was when I would use the sink the water took a long time to drain and also the bathroom door was really rusty because it made a lot of noise when opened or closed. Breakfast Nothing that spectacular but I did appreciate the effort. Breakfast would consist of cereal and things you could make a sandwich with. There was also tea. If you are trying to save money don't include breakfast. I don't think it's worth it. Dinner Again not that spectacular. I will say the fish n chips were good but it seemed like they served it everyday. Again, if you're looking to save money I think you could skip including this as well. Service I have no complaints about the Staff. I believe they were as helpful as they could be, They were not rude at all. Overall This is a great place if you are on a budget. I would definitely go back if I was still on a budget.
We stayed here on tour in rooms sleeping 4 (2 double bunk beds) which was fine. The bathroom was fine, larger than I had expected actually for a budget hostel type accommodation. Cons: The hotel feels quite old and outdated and the breakfast room is a weird windowless room in the basement of the building. Pros: The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable, and a tram stop is right outside of the hotel entrance across the road making travelling in to Amsterdam central very easy. Would I choose to stay here again if I were booking my own accommodation? Probably not. I was able to book a cheaper place right inside Amsterdam central around the same time so there are definitely better choices. But do I appreciate this place being a budget option should every other place be booked up? Yeah sure.
