Came with a friend to stay for a few days. The location of Hotel Abba is great and within easy walking distance of everything. There are a lot of stairs so if that is a problem for you then do not choose here. Bathrooms are shared, rooms are very basic but clean. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is...

Dear Nadia, Thank you for writing us a review! We are indeed a smokers friendly hotel, this is why, when you made the booking there was no other option than to choose a smokers room. We don't have a lift (like most hotels in Amsterdam) this is also stated on every website we're bookable on. As we are a budget...

Not the most modern hotel but rooms are well furnished and decent quiet location. I always stay here for a night or two when visiting here and well worth a stay. It is a smoke friendly hotel so the place does smell of weed which can be unpleasant for some and perfect for others. Friendly staff and great for friends

Great value hotel for a friends get away. Only negative points would be that it would have been useful to have a hand towel and bath matt provided. Larger mugs at breakfast for tea and more plugs in the room. Apart from that the beds were really comfy and breakfast was good.

A really good budget option in an expensive city. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful in getting my room made up as I arrived early. Small room in an older building with a very comfortable bed and good shower with plenty of hot water. Room was made up nicely every day, and the breakfast was really good considering the rate...

On arrival we were allocated our rooms but told they were not together. in fact they were nowhere near each other. The hotel must have originally...

Dear Joany46, Thanks for writing us a review. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. We are indeed a smokers friendly hotel, as stated on every website we're bookable on, also does it state that we can't guarantee a smoke free room or certain placement in the hotel.
