Cheap but good

The location is on a well serviced tram route direct into Central. The hotel is being renovated in parts and maintenance appears to be a bit neglected. Staff are helpful and the rooms are quite good and very clean. Good on the migrant women cleaners! I would recommend this hotel for the budget aware traveller. Food is a bit ordinary but breakfast passes muster.

50-50 on a Good Room

After reading the reviews I knew I had a 50/50 chance of getting a good room.... Avoid First Floor Rooms! They have zero ventilation. In serious need of renovation and deep cleaning. Strong Sewer smell in bathroom. We had room 7 on the first floor. There was construction going on nearby. The windows did not open. The shower curtain was mildew-y and needed change. Carpet awful. Had a small fridge that was not cleaned but worked for us. I suggest bringing own towels, shower shoes and slippers in case you get a first floor room. Great location to tram and grocery store near by. Next door to fire department. Sale of tram tickets with options. Numerous maps and tour idea pamphlets. Tasty fast food place inside hotel. Vending machines. Gated parking. Good price. Close to center of Amsterdam without being in the hustle bustle of nightlife.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Grocery stores and another store a half a block from hotel to get all your quick bite to eat needs. Tram within a block of hotel perfect direct shot to all the city attractions like museums, restaurants, shopping. Cheaper priced rooms offer more to spend on attractions. Eating out is expensive so make sandwiches when possible.

good for the money

After reading previous reviews I thought what have I let myself in for as there was talk of mice, ticks and bed bugs!! Food was nice for a 3 star, surroundings were ok the room was cosy! I don't know what other people expect of 3 star hotels but this met the standards quite well! Staff were friendly and willing to help! My only issue is the distance to dam square it's not far but would have liked it to be nearer! A tram pass is a must if you stay here! Although there are plenty of other hotels to choose from I think for value you can't go wrong! I would stay again and recommend it!

BED BUGS ! BED BUGS!

BEWARE!!!!! Avoid! Woke up Itchy and squashed a bed bug on my pillow, he must have had a large family I didn't see. It has been two days since we checked out and I must have 50 + still very itchy bites on my neck, arms and chest . I did not appreciate how bad these things are when I saw them mentioned in an earlier review. They don't seem to be able to get rid of them. Fortunately this hotel was on the end of our stay and not the beginning. I found a bed bug crawling on my bag at the airport. Now everything gets a hot wash and the bags have to go into the freezer for a week. Read how bad they are if they get into your house.

Good Price, average room

Hotel was clean, professional, and overall good. Rooms are misleading as they didn't look like in the pictures online but still ok. Hotel was a little difficult to find but close to city.
