Laura Gomez thinks…

"It is very well located, clean, helpful staff. In some parts, it smelled like weed but I think that is the whole city..."

Backpacking / gap year

31 July 2010

Liked: It was clean - we had a private room so they offered towels, clean bathroom, TV in the room and cheap internet. Location was good as well. Close to red light district and a few fun bars, but far enough away so it wasn't too loud.

Disliked: My roommate and I entered the hotel at 2:00am - and we were able to walk straight in to the elevator and no one checked our keys nor was the door locked. As two females staying in Amsterdam - I would not recommend this hotel based on safety alone. There also wasn't a place to meet fellow travelers.

Customer review

31 May 2010

Liked: the room we stayed in was in the basement with no windows! or even an aspirator in the bathroom which did not have a door so not really pleasant..! the room was a good size but not very clean.. the breakfast was very good though and the hotel is conveniently located near the Red Light District.. The hotel was good for few nights only! I would advise you to ask for a room with windows and even to upgrade your room for 25 euros per night if you can afford it!! Overall mark: 5 e a half..

Russell Morris

27 April 2010 Russell would recommend this property

Liked: It has exactly what you need for a visit to Amsterdam. We arrived as a group of four men at around 10am on Saturday morning, and they were able to let us have a room to check-in to. The other room was ready at 2pm. They were clean and had been modernised, along with Samsung LCD tv's, but were begining to look a little worn in areas. I wasn't quite sure what to expect having read some other reviews, but I was very happy with our rooms. Our rooms were below ground level, so no windows. We paid €40 per person, with a free breakfast in Malones Irish pub next door, which consisted of cereals, toast, cheese ham, tea and coffee. Would definately stay there again, a stroll from the train station, and situated on the quiet edge of the Red Light.

Disliked: Russell left no negative feedback.
