Central location in the heart of the red light district
Rooms are dark and lack lighting
The atmosphere, the location
nothing, everything was what you would expect from a budget hotel, busy, vibrant some times noisy but everyone was out there to have fun, not for the old at heart
Location was great, easy access to all sights in Amsterdam, and the room I had was comfortable and clean enough for me.
The guy snoring so loud noone else could sleep...
low cost central location
multiple occupancy room
I liked everything, the value was great and the rooms were trendy despite the old building. The location was AMAZING, really good strategic location to try out everything, specially for first timers, the staff was really nice and helpful and the people that stayed there completely put me at ease with the fact that I was sleeping with 11 strangers (only at peak times though, sometimes to room is breezy during the week), they were all very friendly.
The only issue I had was the bed size, I’m 6ft' 2 so the small bed size was a slight issue (hence my low comfort rating). However, the mattress was really comfortable, wish they had a slightly larger one.
Rooms were very cool, I took a youth group of 10 young people, they enjoyed it, great vibes nice staff,
There were an 24hour open reception.
The hotel was supposed to be a three star hotel. I would rather have stayed in a hostel! There were fungus in the wall, waterdammege in the seeling. When it was blowing outside there were the strangest sound. Kind of like a coffee machine bobbeling. Further more our safty booth was broken, and the first thing we see at arrival are the police aresting some body in the entrence. A very bad experience!
The staff did not give us a hard time about needingmore towels or sheets. It was in the red light district, but it wasnt too bad.
when we got to our room, which was a double ensuite, someone had already been in one of the beds the window was wide open, and the shower was on and the entire bathroom was a mess.
hotel staff - very friendly and smaily people
small, dirty room,very poor furnished. It`s not a hotel, it`s a hostel
The breakfast and the location were good
The bedding was very poor ,the room facilities were very old , the staff could not be bothered to offer any sort of cistomer service .
