ATINA CHANG thinks…

"Literally in the HEART of Amsterdam, in the Red Light District. You can see brothels from the window if you're on the street side. GREAT staff, better than I expected!"

JEAN PAUL MICHON PAOLI

23 April 2009 JEAN PAUL would recommend this property

Liked: If you are looking for a place at center of the red district to discover the heart of Amsterdam at a reasonnable price, this is perfect. Rooms are clean and price is OK. However the place is quite busy & noisy. The Room was very dark and a bit "sad" but may be because it was a Star Wars theme, so completly black with only 1 wall painted. Anyway we didn't stay in the room for long ...

Customer review

14 April 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The breakfast was lovely, good selection. However, there was limited space to eat and socialise. Plenty of character and relaxed atmosphere. TVs in the rooms were a bonus though other things eg. a mirror would be useful. Our room was in the basement so was a bit dark but generally nice and clean. Our bathroom wasn't ensuite and had limited privacy as it was upstairs right next to the terrace area. I believe all the upstairs rooms are all ensuite. Overall very good value for money if your looking for somewhere affordable to sleep and eat breakfast, would recommend to younger or student groups, particularly as only one key available per room.
