"Provide better inf next time"
We didn't like it that much, first of all we booked it first by the internet, but when we got there we needed to pay cash anyway and if I'm not mistake, there was no sign saying that was that way, we knew that only by the time we provided all the credit card inf, and supposily had payed it, which got us some issue with the bank which held our money.

"Basic hotel with some good features"
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. It is right in the middle of the red light district. So, it may not suit everyone but everything you need is nearby. There are always a lot of people around especially in the evening. There is a good grocery store on the other side of the hotel block. Once we arrived, there was a confusion about the room and we had to wait awhile for the room. This was a basic hotel and amenities were only just enough i.e. one towel for each person, a small soap bar and a sachet of shampoo, no floor mat in the bathroom, no shower curtain, no refrigerator, no kettle. The breakfast was included and was adequate but served from 9.00 to 11.00 only. The stairs were very Dutch i.e. very steep, so it would be a nightmare if you had big suitcases. The room was clean. The beds were OK. The staff were a bit intimidating, business-like, unfriendly and unhelpful. The WiFi on the third floor that we were staying was very weak. I would recommend the hotel for a short city break, young dudes, singles, bachelor party, possibly business trip.

"In the Red Light District"
The room had a window but only a view of the roof. The walls were cracked and desperately needed a coat of paint. The bathroom was nice and shower water pressure was good. Decor was non-existent. Location, in the Red Light District, so security was tight but that was a good thing. Breakfast buffet was nice with fresh cooked scrambled eggs and sausage, cereals, breads, coffee and juice. It was close to all the action but for a more pleasant stay, I'd check into other locations in the city.

Very decent hotel stay. Rooms are simple, and clean. This hotel is in the heart of the redlight district. I expected it to be loud and disruptive, but it was not. Desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Would certainly stay here again.

"Budget Hotel"
This hotel is located in the red light district. Location is great considering you are close to all the action, Dam Square, Central Station, bars, restaurants. The hotel was a budget hotel and a great deal, probably 1/3 of the price of any other hotel I saw on line at the moment. Shared restroom was a downer but one of the things you sacrifice to save money. Room did not have a clock, tv, phone, ac, but had a clean bed to sleep on. The hotel staff was not very welcoming and could use a little more people skills but it was ok considering I didn't need anything from them. Overall I would stay there again if I wanted to save 100 euros a night.

"simple, easy, nice staff, no frills"
location is great if you want to be near city center - the hotel is in the middle of the red light district, but as a young woman staying alone i actually felt very safe there as there were so many people out and about. easy walk to/from train station, city center, bars, museums, etc. very nice staff. free breakfast in morning. room was fine - nothing special, but clean and comfortable. and free wifi!

"Right in the middle of the action in Amsterdam"
The location of this hotel is just perfect. An easy walk from Central Station and directly in the middle of the traditional and old Amsterdam. The hotel is directly above a coffee shop and bar. I was really suprised by the value of this hotel given the location. It's a no-frills and honest hotel and I would happily stay again.

My booking showed a total charge to pay off €125 + 5% tax (€131.25), but the hotelier insisted the bill was €135. Paid the extra €4 to avoid my family being left without accommodation on a Saturday night in Amsterdam, but want to make other potential guests aware of this practice. Seems so petty to be overcharged by a few Euros, which needlessly tarnished the experience!

"Conveniently Near Dom Square"
Family of 4 stayed 2 nights in a quad room on the main floor. Room was ok, not the best but served our needs. Breakfast was very good, staff also. Was just a few blocks from Dom Sq and in the Red Light district but still family friendly enough for us. Grocery store around the corner was helpful.

"Basic but clean hotel."
The room was very basic but essentially clean, with a fairly comfy bed. I think some of the rooms had TV but mine didn't. The hotel has WiFi both up in the rooms and in the main downstairs area, though it was random luck whether it worked or not so I wouldn't rely on it. Breakfast was between eight and nine and was a typically European affair; scrambled eggs, bread and various sliced meats. There was museli and a few basic cereals too. One thing to be aware of, given the location of the hotel, it is quite noisy. If you have a room out the back then it's quiet but if you're at the front then you'll have Street noise for most of the night. Overall, I think it was expensive for what it was but perhaps I was expecting too much for city prices. Would I stay here again? Possibly for a short break, it was clean and functional.

"you get what you pay for"
This was the cheapest hotel available in the heart of the RLD so I wasn't expecting much. The bed situation was not made clear during booking and my friend and I ended up sharing a double bed rather than having two singles which we would have preferred. Upon checking in we were told that the front door was 24-hour, however, on our first night we were scolded and told to stay in our rooms by the night porter for wanting to go out in the early hours of the morning. Of all the places in the world, I will not be told to go bed by anyone, especially in Amsterdam. I will not be using this hotel again.

"Decent for one night"
Firstly you have to keep your key behind the front desk every time you leave the hotel. Not a problem but when I got back at 3:00 in the morning I had to wait outside for 25 min ringing te cell waiting to get let in. Then when the guy opened it he was not happy that I woke him up. And told me I should never get back this late. I thourght I was able to come and go as I please.

"OK Hotel, Red Light Area = Interesting, Central"
While the hotel is in the red light area, this mainly means there are lots of tourists around. The location in very central, facing a canal, not too hard to find. The outside and inside stairs are very steep. The staff were between brusque and OK, but also helpful. The room had a sink, but it was a shared toilet and shower. The hot water took about 5 minutes to arrive. The room itself was Spartan, but everything seemed clean and satisfactory. The breakfast and check in area on the main floor look nicer than my room. I had a heavy bag and the back staircase, equally steep, was still a bit easier. Breakfast was OK, scrambled eggs tiny sausages (not warm) usual cold items. It was the least expensive passable hotel near the train station available on Expedia at the time I booked.

Hors de prix pour la prestation de très mauvaise qualité (250 E la nuit!), certes quartier rouge, mais peu recommandable en famille, excessivement bruyant. Chambre dortoir, propreté très douteuse, salle de douche repoussante, escaliers raides. Des mégots par terre dans les couloirs... Avons changé en cours de séjour pour le quartier Jordaan, beaucoup plus sympa (canaux). Accueil malgré tout sympa mais très laxiste. Hotel Plutôt pour les séjours de jeunes hommes en groupe...

"Mitt i "Red light district" men bra ändå"
Hotellägaren var mycket vänlig/tillmötesgående. Frukost endast under en timme och den var ok. De var dock lite dåliga att fylla på, så de som kom i slutet av timmen hade inte så mycket att välja på. Hotellet ligger mitt i "Red light district" men det kändes ändå tryggt att bo där (vi hade även med oss en 12-åring). Läget i övrigt mycket centralt (vi åkte tåg) med gångavstånd från stationen. Visade sig att ryggsäck var ett mycket bra val, då det var många smala branta trappor till rummen. Vårt läge på rummet var bort från gatan vilket gjorde det mycket tyst.
