Historical Traveller Reviews of Singel Hotel
Great Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent location, bit tired.from A TripAdvisor Member
It is their policy to pay upfront. We asked to see the room first, and this was OK. They also like you to leave the key, but this system seemed to work OK.
Our room was on the top floor, and was a typical loft/attic type room. The room was non-smoking (sign on the door) as requested, however there was a smell of stale smoke. Either the room has previously been smoking, or people have ignored this.
It is important to make a distinction between 'dirty' and 'tired' - our room was very clean, and was well serviced each day. However, certain parts of the room were a bit tired - the bathroom sink was quite worn. The bathroom was a 'wet-room' design, so there was no shower divider or curtain, so things could get a bit wet! There was no bathroom fan, which was a major disadvantage.
The TV was small, but we were not in Amserdam to watch TV, so this didn't bother us. The Continental breakfast was very good, and included cereals and hard-boiled eggs, which were a nice touch.
Our room was not the kind of hotel room you sit and relax in, however the location made it perfect for our first visit to Amsterdam. Would we stay here again? - we would probably look around for what else is available, and might consider something further out now we know our way around a bit, however this would remain our comparison base at the internet rate we paid.
Great hotel for sightseeingfrom Hedberg
Best Pillows and Comfiest Sleep Ever!from bdgfamily
The hotel was very clean, the staff was nice, honest and accomodating. the morning breakfast included in the room rate was typical Euro buffet style, but better cheese and meat than some free Euro buffets I've had before.
We asked for a canal view room and had a huge room! Twice bigger than we anticipated it to be. Hotel is in walking distance to the main rail station, dam square and easy access to transit
We will definitely stay here again on a return trip
Good, honest hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
First time we had ever just booked a flight and room over the net and used your site to judge the best place to stay.
And we got it right!
We were on a budget but wanted the best we could afford and this hotel really met the remit.
The room was clean, tidy, warm and non smoking (as requested) it was quite in the evening (as requested) but you could hear other guests moving about, but it IS a hotel afterall!!!
The view was hillarious! A wall approx 1 and half metres away! But we didnt want to buy the room, only rent it! And all houses in the City are constructed this way, hay live and let live!!!
Easy to reach from Centraal Station and in walking distance even with cases!
Only snag was no coffee/Tea making facilities in the room but 24 service was available. (My coffee addicted husband's moan!)
The food was good and honest continental style, as much as you wanted and a good choice. The staff were friendly and accommodating. You could hire a lock up for 5 euros for the whole stay.
The location was central and ideal...I would completely recommend this hotel and the City!
Also, (and not related to the hotel, but essential to the 'holiday' experience!) try the Bagal Village at the bottom of the street! The warm Cinnomon
and sultana sweet bagel with home made cream cheese and fig jam was to die for!!!
Great hotelfrom Slybear
Decent Economical Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was small but decent . It was clean and had basic facilities. Takes some time to get used to some quirks. e.g to switch on the light in the bathroom you have to pull a rope.
They provided a very cosy comforter. Room was clean and well kept.
They have a basic breakfast included which will get you going in the morning.
Hard to beat the price and the locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Pros and consfrom Gaucho
Good points: - excellent location, on a very beautiful canal, close to Damrak and the Central Station; - very good breakfast; - helpful and nice staff that gave me valuable tips about restaurants; - clean and comfortable room.
Bad points: - I asked a room with view of the canal two months before staying there, but they gave me a backroom with a view of a big wall about 3 metres from my window; - I had to pay for my entire stay when I arrived, before going to my room (very unusual); - some guests were noisy and disturbed my sleep.
I Had a Great Experience!from A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Amsterdam
Heineken Museum 10 euros to get in includes 3 x 1/2 of Heineken or soft drinks and a free gift. As well as getting a thorough gounding on how the beer is made there are lots of hands on experiences it easily takes 2 hours to get round. Very good value.
Try getting out of the City There are many bike rental locations. Take the ferry from behind the train station across to the other side of the harbour and in 45 mins you'll be in the wetland area of Twiske and spot a couple of windmills
Getting there Get the train from the airport to Central Station and the Singel Hotel is literally 5 mins walk away
