Hotel Hortus Review

The position is good, it is fairly quiet and room was spacious
The stay was as expected, it is a "budget" hotel and that is what you get. There is no lift so lugging two suitcases up very steep stairs was a hassle. The luggage storage is a back shed out the back. Front door is secure and reception is 24 hours. We only stayed for one night and it was fine for a budget hotel.

Event full stay

Not at all except for staff like who are helpfull
1. Upon check the staff (Manger) was not helpfull at all and very arragon. we requested for early breakfast and he turn us down. In the evening we met up with and we had a nice conversation. She than offered to arranged breakfast the next morning. Next morning while having breakfast, the Manager arrived for his duty and saw us having breakfast. He than throw his tantrum by banging the table and pushing the chair around showing his dislike. On third day while waiting for our transport to the airport (arrange kindly) the Said manager we talking very loudly with is friend without regard of others. He even rudely request us to tone down while he was talking very loudly with his friend. We will not recommend any of our friends or my guest to stay at this hotel at all cost. I do not see how a person could work in this service industry with his attitude. As I am also in the travel business where my clients come first and we provide first class service.

Budget Hotel, clean well located & nice staff

Price, location and friendly staff
This is a real budget hotel, no lift. We were on 3rd floor with very high stairs, will be a problem for elderly or families with small kids. Amsterdam is a tourist friendly city, so easy to get from airport to central station, the tourist office then the metro...about a 5-10 min walk (if you go right way) This hotel is in quieter area, about 15-20 mins walk from the hustle of downtown. The front desk manager was great.....would not stay here again, as better to take a hotel with lift etc.
