I've stayed at this hotel many times because of how close it is to the Central Train station, and because they have competitive prices and the best breakfast in town! While the rooms are small, that doesn't matter to me because I only use the rooms for sleeping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value in a great location"
This is not a luxury hotel, but it's clean and cheap and the location is great (a couple of blocks from train station). In addition there's free wifi and a free breakfast that's very good. If you in Amsterdam to enjoy the city not lay around your hotel, this is a perfectly good choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for family of 4 to stay in central Amsterdam"
We stayed 2 nights with a family of 4 during a sightseeing layover from the airport. The room had 4 single beds, slightly cramped space. The location is ideal--easy walking distance to Central Station and the sites. Breakfast comes with the room. The hotel was professional and comfortable enough, staff helpful. Would recommend for a family willing to […] spend a little more to stay conveniently in Amsterdam centre, but not wanting to spend a fortune for two rooms elsewhere.

"Good for the money"
Only stayed two nights, room is small but good for a single occupancy. Bathroom is decent, tub, shower, and small sink, with built in hair dryer but no iron, 19 inch CRT TV. Although dual window, one can hear the crowd below (was on 2nd floor). Complementary breakfast is descent, with variety of meat and cereals. Would come back again for a short stay. […] Can't comment about the scary because was on a very busy business trip, so didn't get a chance to do sight seeing. Neighborhood didn't seem busy or run down.

"Good to stay"
A nice hotel and convenient in Dam Square. Good breakfast. Nice room, but easy to hear the noises outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap decent heart of city"
Hotel is in a great location. Small beds pushed together to make queen size didn't like that. Super hot water was nice after a cold day. Disliked needing room key to power room but I guess power saving is a good thingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel, great location!"
This was a great hotel. Very clean, terrific breakfast, close to the train station and canals, easy walking distance to all we needed. Staff was very friendly and we got a great nights sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On the plus side, the Hotel was reasonable, the staff was fine, the location good, and most importantly it was clean. But the room and bathroom were comically small - like staying in a closet and the walls were paper thin. There wasn't a lot of noise when I stayed, but I could hear everything nearby. Had there been noise it would have been annoying. […] The elevator didn't work right all the time, but I was only one flight up so could walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very old building. Small room. Carpet worn out. No bath. VERY uncomfortable bed. Can hear noise from neighboring rooms and outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay."
The people at the desk were so helpful with information on day tours and other things. Breakfasts were spectacular. Location good. I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of many stays here"
I have stayed at the Avenue Hotel many times over the past few years. I get one of the single rooms way in the back, #103 this time. The hotel is located close to the Centraal Train Station but not so close as to be in a seedy neighborhood. The hotel staff is friendly and they provide free wifi (with access code) and a nice breakfast buffet. Good value […] for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and awesome staff"
I thought its location was the best thing about it ...I had a single room and its size was fine....typical small European room but clean . Great staff...ice machine was a great thing (rare in amsterdam ) breakfast was a nice plus ... Terrible bacon though....I will stay here again....Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to Central Station"
It was very convenient to Central Station thus easy access to Schipol. My wife thought it was great there was a quilt shop just down the street. The location is very good, close to shopping, dining etc. The breakfast isn't served until 0700, a little late especially if you have an earlier flight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel location is fantastic. We only had 24 hours to explore the city and the location made it super easy to see Amsderdam's highlights. It is very close to Central Station. The room itself was a bit small and tired but for us, it was fine. There was a very large selection of foods at breakfast which was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a 3 bed room on the 4th floor overlooking the street. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, modest hotel, great location"
It was a great location (close to main train station and shops). They provided a good breakfast. The staff was friendly. The free internet worked exceptionally well. It is not a fancy hotel so if that is what you are looking for you will be disappointed, otherwise it is likely you will find it suitable. It seems a little dated, but from what we could […] tell it was in good repair and was quite clean. For TV fans the TV may seem really small, although it didn't matter to us. The room is not overly large but we found it comfortable. The layout of the hotel is interesting. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are small, but all Amsterdam rooms tend to be small so this was no different from other options. The breakfast was good in that there were plenty of options, enough seating, and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A room for four"
Good location , 5-10 min walk from train station , good location in city , airport to hotel under 30 min. Room was ok , old carpet and no recent renevations but did have a fairly modern washroom , was expecting a little more for the amount of money spent was not a cheap place. We got a room for four a split level room with two beds upstairs , the kids […] loved it up there . All thins considered I would recomend the place and stay there again .

"Great stay, great breakfast"
Hotel is a short walk from Centraal Station but was easy for us to find, one street over from the main street. Hotel was clean but room was a bit small, still very comfortable. Room also had perfectly working AC, which is apparently very rare to get in Europe. AC worked great! This hotel had the best breakfast buffet I've ever had at a hotel in Europe, […] the biggest selection too. Our breakfast was included but I think it is normally 6-7 Euro. It is worth the price. Location is great, very central to Dam Square which is a short walk up the street. Many bars and places to eat in the area. A few streets over from the Red Light District. A little bit pricier than the majority of hotels I've stayed at, but I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good bargain ;close to everything"
Had a single room, very compact but efficient. Thin walls like many older hotels, but expected. Room was clean, service good and excellent American style breakfast. Also free wi fi and also computer use by front desk.Recommend for those not wanting elegance but affordability and accessability.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, but not clean"
Our room smelled like the sewer was backed up. The front desk clerk came to the room and agreed. She said they had no other rooms, and twice they tried to cover the smell by treating the shower drain. The second time they put lots of bleach down the drain, which did kill the sewer smell but left a strong bleach smell. I twice requested an adjustment, […] but was always put off by the staff. I don't think they really care, they got their money. I would not recommend this hotel. The carpet was also heavily stained. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I know neighborhoods near main train terminals tend to be a little grubby, but this was a little grittier than expected. Breakfast was OK. No restaurant for dinner though. Cantraal station is very close, so it served it's purpose for my stay. Room was tiny, even by euro standards. Bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke, I'm sure a previous guest (or guests) […] tried smoking in there although it is a non smoking hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Good Pension, A Not So Good Hotel"
Would call this an "adequate" place to stay. Caters to tourist trade. You are wary when you see sign offering room upgrade for more euros at check-in - right off, think that attractive room price saw on web isn't such a bargain. And found it to be so - one person room quiet, but cramped quarters, industrial grade floor carpet, not even a box of Kleenex, […] and only hotel room I used that had not been upgraded to flat screen TV yet. TV remote didn't work and told probably bad battery and I was told no one to come to my room, so told to bring it down to front desk for new one. It took four of staff, subsitute of different remote and 45 minutes to get a working one. Standard breakfast offerings. At a lower price, I would have thought this was a good pension, but at the charged hotel level price, pretty underwhelmed by the faciltiy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expensive, but small and dated rooms"
Somewhat typical European hotel - small room, small TV, old hairdryer, double bed which is actually two twins connected together. The rain shower was a good update, but being open to the bathroom (water runs everywhere) was the old-fashioned European approach. Nice thick towels, though! And they do have an ice machine, which isn't very common in Europe. Okay […] as a basic place to stay in Amsterdam - with a great location, but very expensive for what it is.

"Exceptional value, good beakfast, some tram noise"
The hotel is great value with breakfast and internet included in the price. Breakfast is good, and internet speed adequately maintains a Skype video call. Very convenient location, within 5 mins walk of the main railway station. The main road has trams which means there is some noise, which is the case regardless of the hotel on that street. A few rooms […] do face away from the street, so if noise bothers, you could try requesting at booking, but I think you'd be better booking a hotel further away from the city center if noise is a concern.

"Not a good option!"
It has an excellent location BUT the room smell smoking, the radiator (hot air) doesnt work well. I asked the administration everyday to solve the problem but they doesnt solve it! The wifi conection in the rooms is really bad, it drops every minute. Really dont reccomend this hotel. In my next visit to AMS, will go to another place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the main train station howeverrrrrrrrrrr"
the hotel is in a great location. very close to the main train station ( That worked out great for us if you have a early flight you can just walk) The breakfast was good. However I would only stay here if you spend no more then two nights. For the weekend its ok but not more then 2 days. The bathroom shower setup was not great. You turn the shower […] on and water goes everywhere. The shower and floor are one part with nothing with keeping water spraying all over the place. The rooms dont have enought light in them so it was hard to read maps so I had to go into the bathroom for that. The staff was very nice. As far as buying sodas(coke) chips or drinks dont buy them from the vending machine at the hotel go next door to the gift shop they have everything in there and much cheaper. You can also buy tram tickets in there as well Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for the price"
This is a cozy hotel that is next to the shopping district/train station in the heart of the Amsterdam. Even though the room are small, but for the price, it is clean, great location with easy access, and hot breakfast is included, which is even better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, but too much Marajuana smoke"
We stayed recently and arrived in the morning (overnight flight) and took train to central station. Hotel is 7 minute walk with luggage away. Had a locked room for all luggage to be held if you were arriving early or checking out early but not leaving city yet. When we returned to check in in afternoon, the initial room stank to high heaven of marajuana […] smoke!!! And the Hotel is a posted 100% smoke free hotel!!! I request a room change and was given one that smelled 1/10 as much of weed as the first. We were so tired, we stayed. The bathroom door did not shut at all, the bath soap ran out, and the beds were waaaaaay too soft and after a full day of walking, left us with a back ache the next day. And every morning at about 2-3 am, on of the other guests on the floor started smoking weed and it permeated the hallway and got into the room (no seals around the door). The included breakfast each morning was nice and convenient to start and plan the day. The price of the hotel is reasonable, the rooms are very small (like a college dorm), but the location is excellent to central Amsterdam, tram lines, train station, restaurants, red light district, etc...

"Excellent boutique hotel, centraal location"
Stayed here several times, close to Centraal train station and Dam Square. Quirky room layout but excellent staff, bright and clean with a very good breakfast buffet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were concerned about this hotel and were pleasantly surprised with what we got. The Avenue Hotel was comfortable, the staff friendly, and the breakfast was completely fantastic. We were only here due to an extra long layover; we found the hotel to be very clean, comfortable and incredibly easy to find. We will definitely recommend this hotel to others […] and use it again ourselves in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Avenue-nice hotel great location & price"
Our room was clean, wonderfully appointed--desite small size of typical downtown hotel rooms in this one there were convenient spots to put everything making it feel bigger, very comfortable bed, the ensuite bath sparkled. We requested a quiet room, and were given a room facing into an interior courtyard (though only a first floor roof below) and it […] was perfectly quiet with the windows closed (no street noise could get in, neighbors all quiet too) but mechanical noise kept us from leaving the windows open. The room was filled with natural light; very pleasant. Good fresh air ventilation through the a/c-heat unit. It is so close to the central train station, we actually walked past the street thinking we must need to walk further. And the train is literally downstairs in the a/p so very very easy to take all public transit. Hotel is half block from a really nice pedestrian shopping district, and great restaurants within 5-10 minute walk. Most of the university buildings are also within 5-10 minute walk; perfect for meeting colleagues easily during a brief stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room but a bit dark. After shower overflow water on the floor..Breakfast very good.Very good location to all the turist sites.Near to railvay station..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We've received a very large room, which was a surprise for Amsterdam. Clean, simple, and well maintained. Close to the train station and city center, safe location. Breakfast ok, but not so great comparing to other 3 stars hotels in the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is very close to the train station, an easy walk even with bags. Only stayed 1 night but the breakfast was very good. I would defiantly stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family Room not up to par"
The family room offered was below street level and as such, was dingy. The décor is dated, the bathroom fittings ancient and the shower did not drain away which meant standing in dirty water whilst showering. It was the worst of all the 10 odd hotels stayed in during a 3 week trip in Europe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but rundown hotel"
Our first room that we stayed in at this hotel was very dilapidated - instead of the shower/bathtub combo room we booked, we got a bathroom with a drain and curtain in the corner. The whole bathroom smelled of mildew - it was very gross. On our subsequent nights we stayed in another room on the fifth floor - our bathroom was better but it too was still […] in ill-repair. The showerhead didn't even work as it was so full of calcium buildups (it actually sprayed water outside the shower). We had to shower using the handheld shower, but unfortunately the hose was only a couple feet long, which meant you had to bend over to wash your hair. On top of that, there was a pump hanging on the wall that would run at random intervals that and make a loud buzzing noise. Considering the other rooms I have stayed at in Amsterdam, this hotel is way overpriced, especially given the overall lack of maintenance at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location near all the main attractions"
Amsterdam is a wonderful city with much to see and do. 3 days is sufficient to see the sights. The whole break was spoiled by the incessant noise each night from outside the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to everything"
Despite some navigation trouble at first we soon realised that the hotel was close to pretty much everything. It was a somewhat basic room with everything you need for a few nights stay, the only issue I had was the 'double' bed we requested was just 2 single beds pushed together that would slide apart with te slightest movement in the night leaving […] a gap between the two. Other than that everything was great! Great, friendly staff and a decent breakfast time and selection to choose from. I would definitely recommend for a reasonably priced, comfortable hotel.
