Hotel Abba is not bad if you don't mind sharing a bathroom or paying extra to have a bathroom in your room. It is in a very good location right of the Leidseplein and compared to most places to stay in Amsterdam it is very cheap. Just don't go with high expectations...Very friendly service. There isn't a lift so be...

Hotel Abba is fine if all your looking for is budget accommodation and somewhere to put your bags and sleep. The good points about this hotel is that it is in a good location next to the train line, on top of a supermarket and not too far from the action (but far enough to get away from the action...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the ABBA for 2 nights this july and I was more than happy to leave. It is in a good location to see the sights of amsterdam (and also directly above a grocery) but that was about the only good part. We booked through the tourist information and at first had a double room...

Solo female traveler, stayed here for 4 nights late April. Extremely nice gentleman at reception who provided me with helpful tips on sightseeing. As previously mentioned, tram stop right out front and 5 minute walk (if that) to Leidseplein, 10 minute walk to museum district, many affordable eating options stone's throw distance, nice fairly quiet neighborhood. Room was spotlessly clean,...

The Abba is not kidding: it is a BUDGET hotel. That means that if you get a double, that means your twin beds will be pushed together. If youre travelling with a significant other, I suggest being careful you dont fall through the crack in the middle of the beds! The sheets are all sewn together and the whole place...

I stayed a single room. It's value for money. If u want to stay a single room this is good. Room a bit dirty and smelly, but it's bearable. Hotel is not too small. Staff is friendly. Tram is just outside, very convenient. 30 min walk to red light district.
