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.

I do not recommend this hotel

Only the location is good. Rest - very poor. It looks that ovners of this hotel forgot to take care of this hotel and now it is ruined. On the photos you can see some new furniture, but it is misleading. Almost everything is old, destroyed, not working or dirty, sticky, unfresh. In elevator (this one which lead to the 4th floor) we feel like in slums. Unfortunately this impression remain the same when we go out from the elevator: some kind of dark and strange "works of arts" on the walls, dark corridor, flaking paint, old and unregulated doors to the rooms. Doors which can not be locked from the inside. Of course, without electronic card you are not able to enter the room from outside so you don't have to be worry that somebody enter the room, but our 1,5 y.o. son was able to open the door by himself without our help from the inside. Luckily he did it only twice and no more because he was affraid of the general impression of dark corridor. Bathroom - dirty, sticky walls, and absolutely not acceptable shower. Shower is fixed on the wall, almost clogged, so the water gushes everywhere but not at the person trying to take a shower. Try to bathe the baby then. Mission impossible. Clogged sink. You really want to quickly get out of the bathroom. Towels and bedclothes smell bad. Stained carpet. Broken light bulb. And our baby who every morning had new bug bites. Breakfast - average. Happy to left the hotel. Fortunately it was only 3 nights. Special thanks to my wife that she did not kill me for booking this hotel.

Good Value for money but a few important flaws

When we arrived at the hotel there were several customers waiting to check in. We were told to wait in the bar and he would call us through. Everyone else got called one by one but we waited 40 minutes before going back to the desk to discover the staff member had gone and forgotten about us so we checked in with the new member of staff. We felt this was really bad service. The lift to the fourth floor was more than scarey. It was very small and shook but there was no other way to get the suitcases up to our room. The room was a real surprise to us as it was very clean with a large bathroom and a huge bed. We loved have the bath to relax in after a day of walking but a bit disappointed that the jets didn't work in it. The shower door didn't close well so you had to lift it at the bottom. The shower was very powerful and this was great. The tv was great and easy to use and the safe was very useful. The bed was very comfortable but the mattress kept slipping off the bed which was very frustrating. One morning we walked down to find a huge pond sized puddle in the hallway of the 3rd floor. This was pretty strange and worrying but when we told the staff they brushed it off as though it was a regular occurrence. The location was great. Although it wasn't at all pretty, we could walk down to the town and get fruit and breakfast much cheaper and we happily walked into central amsterdam. This was really great. We also used the tram system which was really good. Overall we were pleased with our stay at West side Inn Hotel and would recommend it and stay again. However we think there are some vital improvements needed to attract more customers.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

It is easy to just get on the tram but I would recommend following the tram route even just one time and take in everything around you. The food is much cheaper outside of the centre and you can pick up really good fruit and food just near the hotel.

Close enough to the tram stop.. Just took us a while to find it initially. Other than that it's a great place to stay. Pizza from the lobby was good but cheap. I'd stay there again if I find myself in Amsterdam.

Free tours leave from 'Dam' 3 times a day. They're great. Google 360 tours Amsterdam.
