6 of us have just returned from a 3 day stay at hotel belga. We were very dissapointed with the hotel. It is nothing like the photos on their website. Me and my partner stayed in room 5,possibly the worst room,as it was situated at the top of the stairs where everyone passes. The walls are very thin and we could here the people in the next room. When walking into room 5 it was like a sauna as we were immediately hit by the heat of the radiator. We later discovered, after asking for the radiator to be turned down, that this was because the window did not shut properly, probably due to the enormous crack outside our window and the fact that they have installed a window which doesn't fit, just like the crack on the outside of room 6 which my sister stayed in. Room 5 is also on a slant and we had to turn the beds the other way around so that the blood didn't rush to our heads!! No towels were provided either, luckily we took our own, although my sisters in rooms 4 & 6 were?? The breakfast was not bad though and there was plenty of hot water when taking a shower. Staff were friendly enough and the hotel is in a good location-approximately 3 min walk to dam square. If the hotel had told us when we booked,that room 4 had room for 4 people to sleep, we would of only booked 2 rooms, saving ourselves alot of money, but they didn't. If you do stay at hotel Belga and get room 5, ask or a different one! If we go back to Amsterdam we won't be stopping in this hotel.

First, when I registered they tried to up the rate by almost 30 Euro per night from what was on my email confirmation. Then, after discussing my early morning departure, no one was there to give me the early breakfast advertised on the website, or give me back my room deposit, despite my banging on the door and ringing. (Separate doors for reception and rooms) When I emailed to inquire about getting it back a month later when I came through Amsterdam again, they refused. Won't go there again!

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam

taxis do not get a taxi the trams are just as good we got charged twenty euros from the amstersam central station to the hotel they told us it was about 45 minute walk we found out it was a ten minute walk

Don't Go There! Give the Red Light District a miss. It's degrading for the women on dispay - and degrading for those who gawp at them.

Transfrom from Airport It was difficult to purchase train tickets from the Airport out to central Amsterdam, as we found our bank cards were not accepted in machines...its easier to que for train tickets, but to be honest we found out that later that not many people actually buy tickets as no ticket conductors actually walk through trains... so All Aboard!
