I'm a frequent traveller to NL, like on a weekly basis... I have stayed in literally hundreds of rooms in the city over the last 15 years and room 123 was quite possible the worst ever... filthy, smelly, cramped & zero natural light and the fact that I had to pay 180 euro for the pleasure was the cherry on...

Had a wonderful stay here. We were travelling with a little toddler and the hotel was very accommodative. Gave us the best room for our rate and also a complimentary baby cot. Location is great just opposite of Amsterdam central. After a tiring day walk, u can rest early since the hotel is close to all the attractions. Well worth...

If you have just a short stay in lovely Amsterdam before flying on elsewhere , this hotel hits the spot location-wise ( take the 15 min train ride from Schipol and walk 7 mins to the hotel ). Although some room updating wouldn't go amiss , our room was very clean and the bed comfy . Nothing was too much...

Hotel Multatuli is strategically located right across the Central Station (land mark: when you get out of the train station, it is opposite Ibis Hotel). It is 15 minute walk to Ann Frank Huis. There's a lot of restaurants, grocery stores,souvenir shops. Ten minute walk to Dam square and the Palace. Right beside the hotel is a canal cruise station....

Hotel Multatuli is perfectly located across from Centraal Train station in Amsterdam. Rm 243 was easily accessible by stairs or via a small elevator. The room was very quiet and quiet spacious by european standards. The bathroom ceiling was a little low when inside the shower area as it has a raised floor, but this is only a minor issue...

The hotel is quiet and clean while our room was functional and small. While there is an elevator there are plenty of steps in between. The location is central and convenient for coming and going - directly across the street from the train station and while just outside of the main city core - everything is a short walk away.

Hotel is very central to all the main attractions. Train station directly facing it.. staff are friendly and welcoming. Rooms were decorated to a good standard. Breakfast buffet available food is lovely with staff providing excellent service. Nice hotel would recommend to others and would definitely visit again.

Ideal location, clean, breakfast good. When we arrived early luckily our room was ready, so thankful for that, but they would've kept bags anyway. Also when we were leaving needed to do airport checkin and get boarding pass. Asked for internet café and was allowed do it there. So appreciated that. and left bags till it was time to leave...

Excellent central position being just over the road from centraal station and therefore the tram base/ticket booth. Just a block or two from the main tourist attraction and a walk or tram ride from the museum area. Canal trips leave from just across the road. Cycle hire next door. Basic, bit better than budget hotel. Rooms small and to be...

A nice hotel and friendly staff, but rooms could do with updating. We really enjoyed the breakfast plenty of items hot and cold. The hotel is very close to the central station and about 5mins from Dam Square. Will return to Amsterdam but will stay at a more upscale hotel.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
