Xun He, Winnie Ng

06 June 2009 Xun He, Winnie would recommend this property

Liked: The hotel looks a little old but its alright. 6 of us stayed in a 8person dorm ensuite. The room is cozy however toilet is not what we had expected. The toilet is without water drainage and the shower is separated by shower curtain. Therefore while bathing, water will flood the entire toilet. Still, i would say its worth the price paid. The breakfast is fantastic by the way!

Disliked: Xun He, Winnie left no negative feedback.

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 ...
