Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The staff were very difficult and unhelpful. You aren't allowed to have your own key and so have to go via reception every time you leave your room. The stairs are an absolute nightmare. I would not recommend this 'hotél'to anyone.

Liked: it was only a short walk from the centre but was placed in a much nicer quieter area. Really nice to come back to after a night out. Didn't expect a tv and sink that was a bonus.

Disliked: The breakfast wasn't great.

Liked: Wasnt much to like about this one except we had a roof over our head.

Disliked: There was a sink in our room which leaked onto the carpet when you used it. The room smelled musty (probably dues to the sink leak). Sheets didnt look to be very clean. We opted for a private room with ensuite which ended up only being a shower which the light in the shower didnt work so we had to shower with the door open to see. I thought we would have got our own toilet but it was only a cummunal one in the hall. TV didnt work. Also just as we checked in and were walking up the horrific steep stairway some girls came down telling us to be careful cos they just found bed bugs! Although we never found any in our room. Also the location was a bit away from the main tourist areas so it was a bit of a walk each day, there is deff allot better, closer options in Amsterdam. Basically there is no way we are staying at Sphinx again.
