                      5.0

                      Small, far from city centre, not comfortable

                    • Single
                      7.0

                      The beds were very comfortable and breakfast was available for 3hours!

                      The wifi didn't reach the room so I had to go down to the main floor to connect. :(

                    • Older travelers
                      8.8

                      Quiet neighborhood but still very easy to get to city center and airport. Very clean and comfortable. Great value

                      Stairs, be prepared to carry luggage up narrow steep stairs.

                      If you want to feel like a primitive man, a taste of dirt, you go there ;-(

                      Standard below any expectation!!! Room dirty, rude staff!!! If you are "lucky" you can even meet a rat under your bed!!!

                    • Couple
                      7.4

                      Nice staff. Shared facilities but clean and new. Good beads.

                      Quite small rooms but still clean.

                    • Group of friends
                      4.6

                      Cheap, breakfast was standard, but you get what you pay for. Night time reception was sociable.

                      Day time staff, extremely unhelpful had to raise my voice just to even get sugar for the room. Rooms were cleaned quickly I.e no dusting under beds behind tv etc etc. bathroom ventilator didnt go off all night. Location was 15 mins from centre.

                      Good value for the money.

                      When the description said private bathroom it didn't mean private toilet too.

                      Pretty good value. With free breakfast from 7 to 10am. It has free wifi but restricted to 1st floor. Also 1 free computer for guess to use on 1st fl. Wifi is nearly no signal when you go inside your room. It's within walking distance to the Amstel Train Station.You can take Tram then switch to train to airport, location is convenient but a bit far from city center. Room service everyday, room is clean. Thanks. Will recommend!

                      No elevator, a big hard to carry big luggage to 3rd floor but hotel staff are willing to help. Thank you. Free wifi only available at 1st floor. When get into room, it's nearly no signals.

                      We found overall that the hotel was very clean and the staff helpful. Breakfast was adequate. Internet access was good. Shower was excellent, along with the comfort of the bed.

                      Overall the quality of the hotel is basic and of a low standard and therefore, in my opinion very expensive. This is also a reflection of the cost of living in Amsterdam. We didn't find our hotel room very warm and the curtain was of an inadequate width to cover the window. Our initial room was so small that it was almost impossible to walk from one side of the double bed to the other and so we opted to pay extra for a bigger room. Based on our expereince we would never stay at this hotel again.

                      helpful staff, quiet area, fruit for breakfast

                      There were dust and dirt in realtively hard to get surfaces like higher places and corners. Fire alarm triggered off twice - really annoying sound these false alarms. The single room was maybe too small.

                      It is clean an budget friendy.

                      They wanted me to charge 5% extra for paying with Visa.

                      Pretty nice hotel with located about 30 mins from the down town. Very easy to find with a GPS.

                      Reception service could be better. Receptionists did not know much about the city, parking, public transportation etc. You will have to figure it out yourself.

                      I liked the service, location, price, etc.

                      Wireless was on and off.

                      The hotel was very close to transport and where I needed to be for my work.

                      The hotel staff were a bit disorganised. Don't bother with the breakfast there are plenty of other places that are better value close by.

                      I liked my room - great bed, had my own sink, had a tv, had a window that could open top or bottom (handy if you want to leave it open during the day while you're out). The breakfast was great - the basic spread but decent selection!

                      I did not find the hotel staff particularly helpful. The girl working in the evenings was especially unhelpful. The wifi network would work for me, and I asked her about it a couple times and she could not have cared less. It left me unwilling to ask her for any other questions, about attractions or directions, etc.
