Stayed in this hotel from 22nd july to the 25th was just great very friendly staff telling us about places to go and things to do great location excellent breakfast in the morning nothing was a problem lovely garden out the back as well where you could see the parakeets flying about would definitely go back again.

Myself & 2 friends had a lovely weekend break away in Amsterdam thanks to the friendly and helpful staff at Prinsen Hotel (Especially the older guy who works in the evenings, nothing was too much to ask and he would always go that extra mile! Thank you). We stayed in the room in the basement, although it wasn't the brightest of rooms, it was clean/tidy, beds were comfy and shower was good! This hotel is in a great location, nice surrounding area, close to city center - we were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go and not to close to city center to be kept awake at night. All in all a great hotel for the price we paid, I will definitely be returning! :)

Hotel was really nice, rooms were tidy, beds comfortable, and bathroom was clean. The hotel staff is great, older guy who works at the reception will tell you everything you need to know, and always has a smile on his face! One of the best things about this hotel is location. We had no more than 5 minutes walk to the Riijks museum and Van Gogh's museum. The town center is just across the big road, so you are located in the very center of Amsterdam. The hotel garden is one of the best things too! When you sit over there, the parrots and other birds are on the branches over your head and all you can hear is them singing. Really nice experience. Canal cruisers are close to the hotels, restaurants and pubs too! I reccomend this hotel to anyone who wishes a peaceful and relaxed vacation in Amsterdam.

My coworker and I stayed in this hotel for one week while working at in the Museum quarter. The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet street close to the museums (Rijks, Van Gogh etc.). We stayed in a remewed room. It was rather small with a small closet, but very clean and nice. The breakfast did not have a big variety of food, but everything was very good. All together the hotel is perfect for a three star hotel. Most of all I liked the parrots that live in the garden.

Has to be the worst hotel I've ever been in. It was so bad, it was funny. Where do I start? Well the first room we were given, had an impressive collection of dead flies on the window sill, which was actually where the head of the bed was. The bed had no headboard, and the pillows rested upon a radiator, under the 'fly graveyard' window sill. The ensuite, was equally unbelievable. The door didn't open fully, as the sink prevented this action. So if a morbidly obese guest visited, they wouldn't have been able to squeeze through the gap. When I raised my concerns, the receptionist arrogantly replied 'it's a cosy hotel'. We ended up booking another hotel for the night, as room change apparently wasn't possible. The following evening, we were given another room. Far from desirable. It was insanely small, to the point, that 1 person had to stand on the bed, to allow the other person to pass. Luckily we had spent the day in a coffee shop, so we cried with laughter at how utterly dreadful it was.

We stayed in a small double with a balcony, the room was small but had everything we needed, would have liked some hot food at breakfast but there was a good selection. Area was quiet and within walking distance of the city centre.

I've stayed at Prinsen Hotel for two nights on June 2017. The hotel it's perfectly placed and the people working there is very kind and helpful giving you all the information you need to spend the best days in that wonderful city. I highly recommend it!!!

Where to start? The room was absolutely tiny - the twin beds were right up against the walls, with a small table (about a foot wide) in between. Only one person can walk around in the room at a time. The bathroom was small, but efficient, but the shower was so small a large person would have a hard time getting in. There was no air conditioning, and temps in Amsterdam when we were there were in the mid-80s. We opened the windows all the way, but then had to deal with blood-sucking mosquitoes and curious pigeons. The staff was not overly friendly - in fact, one guy was downright rude - no help with bags or anything else. Breakfast was okay. The only good thing was the location - very close to the museums and restaurants, bars, etc.

Room 41 was so small and nothing like is shown on their website. There where two single bed pushed together and I had to climb over one to get into bed. Nothing to make a cup of coffee like most hotels. From the outside street level it looked like the room was an afterthought to the building. Breakfast was good and the night manager was very helpful when we arrived . Location was good and you can walk into city from there with ease.

Really nice and quite neighborhood. It's a great location only a few mins walk to Leidseplein, Museum Quarter and Vondelpark. There's also nice continental breakfast. Rooms are small but nice. Clean hotel.
