It was really exactly what we expected. A small room, and yes, it did have an odor when we arrived, but the gentleman at the desk came up and opened the window for us which alleviated the problem. There was noise from the street, but we got back so late each night that it didn't faze us much. We were on the 3rd floor up very steep steps, but we always made it. The breakfast we usually got as we were coming home and ate as a late night snack because we weren't up early enough to go down. All in all, it was a decent place and within walking distance to everything.
Directions: red light district
Watch out !
I didn't know if putting this hotel in this section or in the
"warning and danger"tip...Pratically we have been DUPED!
We booked a triple room by internet;less than 50euros x night with breakfast.
We arrived,after a trip of 14hours,at 8pm and...surprise!! The room was an a** h***!!!!!!!!!
They gave us a LITTLE(3X2m!) double room with a mattress more on the ground!!!!!!!!! We couldn't move!!!!!!!! SCANDALOUS.If it had been only for the dimension,we wouldn't have remained so upset..but hey!We payed a triple and they gave us a double(incredible,they haven't neither eliminated the indication on the door!)!!
Now we will organize to get back some money..
Unique Quality: Anyway,SCAM apart,the bath it wasn't so bad;a clean
shower and toilet inside with a NICE FEATURE..I tell
you in roman dialect before:"AR CESSO SE JE RIPROPONE!!!!!!!" ahhah!! Yes yes..you use the WC and,after some minuts,EVERYTHING comes back to
GREET you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) But I heard that it's a quite common problem there...!
What other could I add?Ahh,yes,steps inside apartments are,as usual for Holland,terribly VERTICAL!
One positive note!
The Hotel is in the real HEARTH of the Red light District! During the night you can feel the BREATH
of this incredible world! I still have in my mind the CHORUS of a PATROL of completely DRANK English guys that,with a guitar,sang Oasis' songs during the deep nght!!(GREAT GUYS! Gorgeous!Really!)
Directions: Follow the GRASS SMELL,go straight on untill you find
tons of PROSTITUTES work in their shop windows and
then try to ask to one of the hundred of PUHERS along the street......
ehheeheh...easy to find;not more than three minuts from the central station!
