Bad Bad Bad

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 6, 2012

I don´t know how you can call that place a hotel, being in an european country,
The most depressing room I ever slept in, Really small (me and my bag together were too many). Smelly and dirty (even the sheets smelled tobacco, Although rainning and cold I had to sleep with the open window because I couldn´t stand the smell and the size. It was claustrophobic.
Breakfast is equally bad.
People are nice but that´s all that´s good there,

Directions: Near central Station.

Stayed 2 nights from 29th Sept to 1st Oct 2010 whilst in Holland for the Utrecht v Liverpool match. The location was ideal for the centre of Amsterdam, very close to the Central Station ( 2-3 mins walk ) and right next to numerous bars, places to eat and red light area. Only 5 metres across the street from the hotel is nice chinese where we had a very nice meal.

Very near to Sex Museum, which was a laugh more than anything as was the Amsterdam Dungeons, both worth a visit.

The hotel accomodation is basic but clean and the bar/pub below ( where breakfast is also served ) is quite lively and sells Grolsch on tap plus other bottled beers as well as a couple of other beers on tap. The breakfast is basic but nice ( bacon omelette ) and bread with butter and jam ) plus tea or coffee.

The lady who works behind the bar ( Ellen ) was brilliant. She was most helpful and very informative.

Unique Quality: Ideal location for Central Amsterdam and Central Station.
