Very odd, very quirky but definitely an experiencefrom cvwgi
Why are you all so negative about this place?from miles26r
Very weird, felt just like the prison it isfrom Orlandolawyer
We didn't eat there because we just wanted to be away from the place. If you came to tour amsterdam it is set far far away from everything else in the city center and there is no restaurants or anywhere to stroll in the nearby vicinity. There is a direct tram line, but if you came to vacation in amsterdam/europe this is not the place to stay.
I agree the pictures on the website ar every misleading. Would not stay here again.
Quirky: give it timefrom Dublin8
Get me out of here!from A TripAdvisor Member
I was there for business but it was so bad I had to check into another hotel after one night. If I was paying to stay there myself I would have cried. The decor is not just terrible but shabby. In my room the toilet was in the shower, I had no hanging rail in the cupboared that was suppose to be my wardrobe and I had 7 chairs of faded quality. The linen didn't look to clean and the base of the bed was dirty. My headboard was a radiator surrounded by cracked tiles. I had requested a double bed but was given a room with two singles that weren't even pushed together. Because the whole place is covered in (ugly, brown) tiles I was kept awake all night by people walking by my room. The pictures on the sight made the rooms look chic and scandinavian but they are just sparse and cold.
I have no problems with the main space in the hotel, the restaurant / lounge / bar, although it did all look like a canteen (a prison one at that). When I came back from work I was subjected to a documentary about ... of all things ... tulips. Nice. It was projected onto a wall in the open space so there was no escape unless I accepted a 5% room service charge in my room. But since I wanted to spend as little time as possible in there and being miles away from anywhere else I suffered it. In addition when I ordered a drink I was informed with a shrug of the shoulders that the hotel didn't have what I wanted so I would have to order something else. I was fine with that but then the drinks that came were made with so little care and tasted terrible we had to complain.
The best thing about this hotel was leaving it. I pity anyone who stays here.
’ve got to stay herefrom I-AM-ON-HOLIDAYS
Breakfast was plentiful and varied…just don’t mix the milk with the sour yogurt like I did!
There is free wireless internet connection throughout the hotel and an entire library of books and magazines if you fancy reading.
The hotel is only 10 minutes from the central station. Take tram 26 and get off at Rietlandpark… or sth like that.
Overall a great hotel and a great experience. Would highly recommend it

Stayed in a 1* room which was basic (as expected)but with great bedding and views and the rest of the hotel more than made up for this (very contempory), even the shared bathroom and toilet were in great condition and actually quite nice
Reception gave us directions when needed and tram only took 5 mins to get to town
Good food (plenty of veggie food for me too)and fair prices
Would DEFINATELY stay there again
Would not recommend at allfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We were expecting the Hotel, from the reviews we had read to be a little "different" but it was in fact "weird".
Our room in the loft space was spacious but it also housed the exposed central heating pipes for the hotel so was warm and noisy.There was no carpet on the floor just rough floorboards and a coir matting which meant you had to wear shoes all the time. There were no tea/coffee making facilities and when i asked reception for non-feather bedding they were unable to provide this.Some other members of our party reported having showers and toilets in the middle of their bedrooms!, we were lucky then we had a seperate wet room.
The dining room was nice, but breakfast was like a chimps tea-party with nowhere near enough food provided for all the guests.There were fights almost breaking out for the last crossaint!.In conclusion this hotel is not good value for money and i would definately not stay here again.
Good Telling Offfrom A TripAdvisor Member
After they had failed to send a confirmation e-mail they had assured me by phone that I was booked in. On arrival they had lost the booking but found us a room.
The room was cold and the quilts were thin. We got up during the night to heap coats and woolies on the bed.
It was supposed to be 4 star but this was not luxurious by any standards, more utilitarian. I've been in better youth hostels! The rooms were arranged so that pretty much wherever you were the lavatory was in full view! Yeuk.
We've had far better rooms and service much cheaper elsewhere. This hotel is an expensive bad joke.
Contemporary and Interesting!from joandpete
Top Local Tips for Amsterdam
avoid on new year if you're not keen on fireworks! Don't even think of going to Amsterdam for new year's eve if you don't like fireworks! Never seen anything like it in my life - absolutlely mental with people setting them off on every street! Brilliant display in Dam square at midnight though.
Tram passes Get a 24/72/96 hour pass from the airport or Tourist information and you can use buses, trams or metro for that length of time for 14.5 for the 72 hour pass.
layover time, meeting place The Amsterdam Central Library is a block from the Main Station and is a beautiful contemporary structure, open until 10pm every night, with easy access to several hundred free computer terminals, local and foreign newspapers, listening rooms, cafe. Easy place to hang out while waiting to meet up with others in your group, spend time before going to the airport.
