Location, safe and an Amsterdam experience

Location, helpful staff and safe hotel
It is a traveller's hotel, and for experiencing Amsterdam old buildings. Not recommended if you are coming for a good holiday. Need to comb the narrow staircase, no lift for luggage so need to carry yourself( the staff can help to carry up but not carry down). Early check out time of 10.30am booked for the convenient location to everywhere in Amsterdam attractions. 10-15 minutes from the Centraal Station

Wai C. Families with young children China, August 4, 2014
The price is acceptable. Can't sleep at night.

The price is acceptable. The room is clean. The location is near to the central station.
The location is very good. It is near to the central station. You can get there by walk. Since the hotel is next to the bars street, the noise was heard all over the night. You can't sleep at night even drinking a beer. It is a very horrible experience. Other visitors in the hotels were also making noise all over the night. This hotel is definitely not suitable for family visitors.

Only strategic location

Only Startegic location
Nothing much to be expected as a budget hotel. But we (3 persons) find better budget hotel next door with Free WiFi + bar + for 4 persons & less price, after we check out on 3rd night

A basic, comfortable room for not so picky people

It's all about the location...

Location, friendly staff, clean
Staff on reception were helpful and friendly.Stairs are the scary part, almost vertical,no elevator in the bulding. Didn't see any sign of an escape route in the event of a fire which was a bit worrying.I would't recommend it for a family as it is very close to the red light district and above coffe shop.Pretty good value for the money.

Great location but small room

1 (Ron) of the reception was friendly and helpful
the location is simply great as the middle of the most happening place in amsterdam. however the room was small and heater was only on for the 1st day. ron the 1st reception who handled us was friendly and helpful and suggested as few places and gave some tips as well.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The hotel is located just a street away from Damrak, the most happening area in Amsterdam and very close to Central Station as well. Always go for the lowest floors as the steps are very steep and if you have big luggage its quite troublesome.

Great Budget Hotel with Terrific Location

Location; Clean Rooms and Toilets; Friendly & Helpful Staff
I've been as a backpacker to Amsterdam and therefore preferred this Hotel noting its great location. I was amazed to see what they offer at the price of nearly 50Euros/night.I stayed 3 nights and it was great stay. I never had to even look at metro. This Hotel is centrally located and fairly close to many attractions. It got clean rooms and private toilets which is hard to find in other hotels with same budget. Infact its not easy to find a Good Hotel in Amsterdam at low price. The Only 'Con' is the Wireless is not free and a bit expensive. Its 2Euros for an hour to 9Euros for 24Hours. But u can always save ur time by going offline.
Shopping Tip: Amsterdam is a great place for shopping.
