Well located, nice personnel, nice central heating.
Rooms were not very comfortable, nor very clean.
hotel schroder is a basic hotel which is a 15 minute walk from centraal station.for those who are not too fussy about trimmings and only want a cosy ,convenient and cheap place to stay for a night or two ,this is perfect.lets face it ,when you are in amsterdam you are happy to be actually able to get back to a bed !!
Good location - only 10 minutes walk to Centraal station. Short walking distance to other famous places. If you simply need a bed to sleep and for good value - it's a place to go.
Single room was so big, metro station located so near to the hostel. Stuff was very kind, and reception was open 24h/day. in general i gut what i paid for.
no privacy in showers, it is mixed female and male. Isolation between rooms very poor so it was noisy. There was no sign for the hostel, only A4 paper which is not enough to find the exact location, for me i arrived at 12am so hardly i found it.
Leaving the hotel
The hotel is not for people with car. There were no parking places. We asked for parking place without payment and we got an address. We searched the address hours without success. Finally our car was on street couple of miles from hotel and we have paid 28€. Later on we tried to look the given address in internet, but it doesn't exist. The people in "hotel" made us driving hours for nothing. With parking and breakfast outside hotel the price was something else than cheap. We were only one day in Amsterdam and our day was ruined with these parking problems.
At the Hotel Schroder, only the location was good. All the rest is terrible!
At first, the staff was not nice. We had to pay before all the stay before enter the room. The rooms had clean linen, but all the rest was really dirty. The toilet and bathrooms d"ont have window, are dirty and smell. The water doesn't flush in the shower. If stay there would be your only option to go to Amsterdam, go there. But if not, I really recommend looking for a better place.
Hotel is just 15 minutes walking distance from Central Station.
The friendlyness of the staff
the lack of care with regards to the mouse in the room. The hotel management were not interested!
