Liked: Very nice little hotel in the South of Amsterdam. Centre is good to reach by Tram. Small but very decent and clean rooms. I liked it that it was not in the centre because it was nice and quite to sleep in the night. The nice area The Pipe is on walkingdistance and this is really the yuppy place to be at the moment. All the Amsterdam people hang around there. Very nice and local.

14 March 2010 M Fadhli would recommend this property

Liked: The location is not very near the city centre but that's ok since the tram system is quite good in amsterdam. The staff were really helpful, telling us which places of interests to go in amsterdam. And the breakfast.. it's really really good! And there were plenty of food to choose from. For the price that we paid, it's real value for money. Recommended and would love to go there again some day.

23 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the breakfast in the morning. Rooms and facilities were generally clean. However, the sink in our room kept clogging, and when we had arrived there was a bunch of rubbish left in one of the drawers. The following day, we left the drawer open, so that someone may clean it, but the housekeeper did not do so. We found it rather odd.In general, good location-far enough from all the craziness, but close enough to walk to central amsterdam. beds were comfortable, and i felt quite safe there.

17 February 2010 Tomasz would recommend this property

Liked: Interesting location, quiet and 15min walk/5min tram 4 to the heart. If you're more than 160cm, you'll definitely find toilets and shower way too small. Hardcore breakfast rules, 10am sharp and it's gone. If you're driving, 27eu/day on the street. A few coffeeshops close to the hotel. Overall, good for the price.

Liked: I stayed here with my boyfriend in a twin bed room. We shared toilet and bathroom. Everything is clean, they give you new towels on the room every day. Is great value for the money you pay. Extra plus for good breakfast.I have stayed in many hostels that rip you of the double price for nothing at all. Also, location was not a problem for us. Justtake tram 4, and you are there in 10-15 min.

Liked: Nice staff, very clean place altogether. DO NOT MISS BREAKFAST. It is served from 7:30 until 10:00. We missed it by 20 minutes, and we heard it was an awesome breakfast..First any visitor to Amsterdam should be warned about the places. Normally rooms and houses are really small. However Hotel Flipper surprised us with a three bed room and fairly large free space, although we have booked for a two-bed room. And the bathroom is really modern, another aspect you could not see in other hotels in Amsterdam. They changed our towels everyday. The breakfast is good with different options. And best of all, they provide wireless internet access, very rare over all European hotels and I think a really important feature

Liked: it was on avarage a good place to spend some days.clean and safe with a good breakfast.If you re travelling with family or looking for a quiet place could be the ideal selection since its in a quiet neibourhood with quiet residents away from the noise of the city center.If you re looking for partying and a fun place to meet new people I wouldn't recommend it since it's about 15 min with a tram to the city center but it is rather difficult to move by night since the tram stops at 12.30 and night buses aren't that often..on avarage the only withdraw would be the location cause after spending a long day sightseeing you really think it twice before leaving your room by night...

It is 5-10 minutes away from the Dam square. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Flipper and recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Amsterdam.
