Quentin Hotel Golden Bear

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is well located for most of Amsterdam's attractions but be is very small. That is to say, the staircases are EXTREMELY narrow and it's very difficult to get up to the top floor bedrooms with or without suitcases. Pretty expensive for what it is. Service is fine as small hotels go but would not chose to return due to the narrow staircases.

Visited here in the middle of June paying €209 for an ensuite double room. Pros: Great location, Very comfy bed, TV with English channels, Good powerful shower Cons: Room smelt damp/foisty constantly, Tiny room, View from window was a brick wall, Stairs were more like ladders. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but I feel it's best for young, able people who can make their way up and down the very steep and narrow stairs. I understand most stairs in buildings here are steep but these ones felt dangerous especially carrying luggage around. It's okay for the one night but I wouldn't of liked to stay any longer. If you're less able I would steer clear of here all together as there's no way you can make it up and down the stairs. I wouldn't return purely because of the stair situation.

We booked this hotel because it was on a gay site. But it is not a gay hotel any more. The rooms were so small you could not move in them there is no were to put you clothes the room was no more then a broom cupboard. And for £100 per night with no breakfast. So avoid if I was you.

The hotel is tiny. If you are planning to visit it with a lot of luggage avoid it. It was small stairs where a person can hardly walk. They do not have any food option except for the mini grocery outlet. Its close to many coffee shops and many other shops and restaurant but its not comfortable to stay in.

Room was clean and had a good size, comfy beds. Location is great. Stayed in a double room with private bathroom. Nice shower. Service on the other hand was rather poorly, receptionists seemed to be in a bad mood all days. I payed for late checkout, on the day I was leaving they came knocking to tell me i overstayed checkout. NOT OK. I would stear clear of this hotel if possible,just because of the non-existent service.

Very small room, only zink. Two steep stairs up you a half decent shower and small wc. Breakfast room is reception sometime with lots of luggage. Ok staff. Payed more than my booking was, like a good hotel in Stockholm. This was like a private room in a 2 star hostel. There are better options, but impossible smaller.

Stayed here for three nights in April. Good location, far enough from the wild nights by the train station, and close enough to the museums. The rooms are seriously small with no place for bags. You have to go outside to change your mind. The bathroom was the highlight with good water pressure and really hot water. The beds are good, but the pillows are a shapeless mass that is guaranteed to end you holidays with a trip to the chiropractor. The staff was friendly, but avoid the widows towards the street as there is a restaurant under that creates a good deal noise. The street view is great for looking at the more cosy hotel across the street. Price is fair but check the bedding as there were stains on the linens and they should have been torched. Bring your own towels. The stairs up to the second floor are mostly appropriate for mountain climbers and people without vertigo.

The positives are this hotel is friendly and clean. However it's really overpriced considering the location and room size. We stayed in a twin and it was very small so small it just about fitted twin beds! The beds were incredibly soft and I ended up falling out of them too. The breakfast was pretty poor. If you have walking difficulties you will never get up the steep stairs.

Its not a fancy hotel, however it is nice for the price you pay. the stairs are a bit of a hazard but that's what its like in Holland. The location was perfect, shops outside your door and walking distance to main attractions. there is a coffee shop next poor for those of you who would like to avoid that part of Amsterdam.

Walls are like paper. Rooms are super bland. The bathroom was decent and the shower was hot powerful and modern which was nice. But the room was water damaged; the ceiling was yellow and brown, and the sheets had a rip in them. Really unimpressed for this price. Sweet location but be prepared to hear absolutely everything your neighbours say and do. You hear every movement in the hall and above you.
