I booked this hotel at the eleventh hour as i just could make up my mind on where to book and was just running out of time! As I had left it so late, I couldn't afford the rooms that were left in the other few hotels I wanted to stay in. Upon arrival we were immediately charged about 50 euros for what I understood after asking a few members of staff a safety deposit, i thought this was a bit crude to assume that we were going to damage anything! We were allocated room 204(?) it was midway up the stairs. The room was dark and a bit cramped, the bathroom was small with a tiny sink that you could hardly wash your face in. The more I looked at this room the more I wanted to kick myself for booking it. The walls were not insulated at all so being that it was around -10degrees outside you could feel a draft when you were near the walls. the lighting wasn't great and there was no cupboard for clothes. The hotel does have a restaurant(we didn't eat there) but it was nice and quiet at night so we slept well. Mornings however was another story, we could hear the buzz of breakfast service and all the guests walking up and down past our door....not a happy bunny. We found that the staff were not very friendly either and when i asked where Albert Cuyp market was the receptionist circled the nine streets???!! They barely cleaned the room and didn't replenish the tea/coffee sachets unless we asked. On the plus side, the location was very good as we were within walking/tram distance of most places, the shower was very very good and there is free internet. They did also leave a bottle of wine for my husband as we were there for his birthday, that was a nice gesture. Overall I would definitely stay in that area but not in this hotel.
