room was clean ,the night staff were very friendly and helpful, tram stops just out front taking you directly to the centre.
Free internet access with their own computer in the bar.
if you pay by credit card you are hit by a 4% extra charge not included when you reserve nor is it announced(very disappointing). beds were not the most comfortable and the walls of the room do need some polyfilla !
- Proximity to the park ...
- Very noisy rooms
- The receptionist was disturbingly insisting.
- We could not get any refund for our second night when we decided we were unsatisfied enough to quit the hotel
The overall impression matches the missing "A" on the hotel blinking front : A*LBORG. Feels fake.
Reasonable prices, nice location
small noisy rooms
Aalborg was the first option available in the "non-hostel" class of hotels (price-wise) and I was surprised by the quality. Great location near trams and a nice park that is probably fantastic in the spring / summer. Very friendly staff that provided some good info on tourist spots as well as areas specific to locals. I will return to this hotel for sure...
The rooms in Europe are always much smaller and you'll need to keep that in mind if you are from the US like me. The shower was too small to move around in and there was some general grime in the bathroom, but it was not excessive. Walls are thin.
Very friendly, helpful staff & a pleasant park right across the ro
Richard was very helpful as our evening 'concierge' and gave us very good advice on where to find dinner restaurants and other needs, like the benefit of taking a taxi to the airport.
Location. Actually, we hoped to go to more museums, so the hotel is well situated for that and we loved the park being so close, but we were surprised at how far we were from the train station, which is how we arrived, but we did end up walking a lot and the tram system was also useful once we were able to learn more about it. We just had not prepared ourselves sufficiently about the Amsterdam layout.
Ok, but not great
Good for budget, noisey
The Hotel was cleean and the staff was very pleasent. They did have a "real" full bed, which in other hotels I have been given a room with two regular beds pushed together. The Bed was also very firm. My room, and I'm guessing others on the first floor, have some access to the wireless internet offered downstairs at no charge.
The walls were so thin that other peoples conversations could be heard clearly in the next room. The toilet was posistioned so close to the shower as to make sitting on it a difficult task. There is a school near by from which children can be heard as early as 9am. I have a great tolorance for noise, but it was to much to sleep through. Personally, I believe I would be happier paying an aditional 20-30 Euros and having a room with more sound proofing.
BEWARE BE WARNED!!!
Cheap. They blocked money on my card, then told me it wasn't authorised and I had to pay cash. So I did. The I checked my card and they had blocked an amount, which they then blamed the card company. Card company balmes merchant. Either way, they MY SPENDING MONEY. What a lovely time, broke, in Amsterdam!
BEWARE- They will block the quoted amount for your stay from your card. Upon arrival, if you wish to pay by card, they will request +4%. If you decline, the blocked amount will not be realeased for another 7 days. If you are on a budget, this may cause you a BIG PROBLEM. It is a scam.
Perfect place for a weekend break
non-inspiring low-budget accommodation
The room was definitely not 3-star, even for Amsterdam standards. I have stayed in more than a dozen dfiferent hotels in Amsterdam an I would not recommend this one. The room was tiny, the tram in front of the window is noisy . Shower and toilet needed refurbishment/renovation. The whole place makes a non-maintained impression. The location is also too far away from the center for tourists (I'm none)
The good hotel to spend the nights after walks across Amsterdam
The friendly personnel, new modern interior of rooms, cleanliness in rooms
Once the cleaner has forgotten to close a room after cleaning during our absence! Small, inconvenient, dangerous bath
Fantastic base for a few days in Amsterdam
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived at 6am, 9 hours before my official check in time. The young man at reception made me an expresso coffee and sat me in the breakfast room where I worked on my computer. they made a special effort to get my room ready by 9.30am. Thanks to all for great hospitality and humour!
This is a basic hotel, but all you need as a base to see the sights of Amsterdam.
LE GOFF GUILLAUME
Young couples -
Le quartier sympa : bien situé dans la ville, avec le marché tous les matins.
Personnel vraiment agréable.
Peu de choses à dire :
Notre baignoire trop étroite,
quelques nuisances de briut avec le tram...
encore que ...
Correct hotel for standard services
Good hotel but try and book a room at the back
Good transport links; nice bar on ground floor; pleasant location; clean and comfy
rooms at front can be noisy as street is busy at night; bath tiny
justifies 3-stars rank
Good location - near tram station Centuurbaam on a relatively quiet street. I lived in a twin room which was (together with bathroom) unexpectedly large for such a small hotel.
Very small corridors and dangerous spiral stairs. Room keys are given without checking the guest's identity. Very loudly you hear your neighbours open and shut the doors.
Lovely place, great value
Great location. Friendly staff. Good wi-fi. Good value. Good golly!
Rooms are fairly small... But not so bad...
Very enjoyable stay and will definitely stay there next time
Loved the space and quality of my double room. Excellent places for drinking and eating or just chilling out. Staff were very friendly and the price of the room was excellent value for money.
None, but it would be nice to have a stand up shower in the future.
Nice and economic
Nice hotel, surprisingly cheap for the average in Amsterdam. Located in a quiet and beautiful area, not in the centre but opposite a nice park and close to Vondel Park and the museums. The best transport was undoubtedly the bicycle, which you can rent at the hotel at a good price, and move around the city in a comfortable, time-saving and benefitial way. Otherwise, there are also trams to the centre.
Like other reviews have already pointed out, there is a big difference between the twin and double room, for a small difference in price. I definitely recommend the twin, as its quality and in particular its size is enormously better than the double.
Overall a nice hotel in a Great Location
Really appreciated the price, location, ensuite in room, and free wi-fi.
Bathroom was very awkward, as was the location of some of the switches in the room
(Families with young children)
baby cot.nice and peacefully neighbourhood not far away from a center-(good for family with small child, like us:))park in front of the hotel.first night we were staying in room on ground flour and it was blowing under windows, but they changed room on our request.
small rooms, small and unhandy bathtub.
Friendly with a very good location,ideal for a few days to stay.
good hotel, great for a week-end - no frills, a bit expensive
location was lovely near a park and close to trams.
quiet hotel, friendly staff, nice breakfast.
bikes to rent 8 euros / day
very small rooms, toilet practically in the room (no intimacy!)bed very uncomfortable.
We had a beautiful spacious room. We very much liked the location.
We had wanted a double bed but those rooms are too tiny so we ended up with two twins pushed together which made for a bigger room but my husband and I were quite uncomfortable sleeping on those beds as it was near impossible for us to sleep together without falling through the cracks... We had beautiful big windows but they looked out onto the patio where the garbage dump was, which was noisy when the staff was throwing out trash. For those reasons I think the room should have been at a discounted price.
