Very good accomadation central location and good value.

Lousy service. Expensive. Good location
  • + We are a curling team of 4 men from Canada. We pre-paid two rooms for two nights. Upon leaving two of our members were waiting in the reception area. The desk man said that they had to leave as the hotel was not open yet. It was 9:00 am!!! Not wanting to cvause any problems they went outside to wait. The deskman then threw a bottle of water and slammed the door. It was so bizarre we had to laugh but it also pissed us off. If you had a zero for service that is what this hotel would get. Do not st

  • + The cat Guiness)) Friendly serviŅe, cozy rooms
  • * my tip yes
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Thought I wanted a room with a view. Got the roof top instead, but it was so much quieter and easier to finally go to sleep.
  • * my tip Traveling alone, I was sort of nervous, but the guys that worked there were very cool. I like that you have to leave your key at the front desk each time you leave. Then I didn't have to worry about losing it.
  • (Other)
  • + Great Location and service.
  • (Travelling alone)
If you must, you must.
  • + The location is the only plus. And the cat.
  • Everything else.

Perfect location with simple style accomodation
  • + Location, relatively low price
  • Shared sanitary, payment during check-in
  • * my tip If you don't require Hyatt comfort and you don't want to spend too much money and you are not afraid about shared sanitary it can be the right hotel for your stay in Amsterdam. Location is perfect.
  • (Travelling alone)
Comfot hotel with a superior location
  • + Location is excellent, only a couple of hundred of meters from central station Clean & warm rooms (remember to put heater on and keep window shut with a paper block). Considering this level of hotels, it could be horrible, but Crown was very comfortable
  • No sink at toilet, cannot wash my hands there rigt away
  • * my tip Stairs are very narrow and steep. Definetly not for the elder people and people with reduced mobility. Toilet and a shower may be on other floor depending on your room.
  • (Travelling alone)
  • common bathroom
  • (Travelling alone)
very basic
  • + location
  • i never got clean sheets in 3 days , or the carpet hoovered , cramped , basic , i also asked for a canal view , but i got the back of an alley instead !!!!
  • * my tip walk past this hotel
  • (Travelling alone)
Good RLD hotel
  • + Location....short walk from central station , close to Sam square and perfect location in RLD can smoke weed or hash in bar at lobby which also has a big screen and pool table.
  • No elevator and steps are extremely steep, rooms are nothing more than beds with a sink in them, if all you are looking for is a place to crash for the night or a cheap stay in the RLD with a bar and smoke friendly lobby then this is the place for you
  • * my tip Good for single or group of friends
  • (Travelling alone)
Lovely little hotel in the centre of it all
  • + Quiet, comfortble and cozy room. Lovely friendly resident cat
  • (Friends)
Great location, budget facilities
  • + Location
  • Small rooms
  • (Travelling alone)
Poor value for money, but well situated
  • + Very well situated, close from the central station and in the heart of RLD. Very good starting point for a visit to the city, friendly staff knowing the district and the city, and able to give good advice. Bar open late at night, no smoking in the rooms.
  • Extremely basic accomodation (which is OK if you don't expect more). For some reason, no water in the rooms in the morning, no safe (although the reservation said "private safe") Largely overpriced.
  • (Travelling alone)
comfortable, clean and central
  • + not the most luxurious but definatly a great hotel for being in the middle of everywhere and the staff are so friendly and helpful... will most definatly be back!
  • None
  • (Friends)
Great location, clean but thin walls so loud
  • + Great location and clean
  • Coldish rooms, no hand wash, expensive. Thin walls so loud, take earplugs!
  • (Travelling alone)
Very basic, but central and inexpensive
  • (Travelling alone)
Interesting basic room - above - a pub experience !
  • + I was surprised how basic it was but service was quite friendly ! It was basically a room above a pub with a friendly bar and bar man and a friendly cat !
  • The shared WC had no top on the lavatory and the flushing mechanism had a piece of rope / string instead of a metal flushing plunger ! It was alright for me as a traveller on his own but I think you should make it clear how basic [ though it is an interesting experience just as a place to sleep and is very central !] a " hotel " it is !
  • (Friends)

Great price, clean and friendly
  • (Travelling alone)
a disappointment
  • + comfortable bed and pillow
  • the room was not at all what was pictured on the web site. there was no wardrobe and private safe, the room was tiny, with a very small window, slanted ceilings made standing up possible in only half the room
  • (Young couples)
  • + Good location
  • No toilet in the room!!!!!
  • (Friends)
clean , freindly , basic but in the heart of amsterdam
  • + tremendous spot , really clean but very basic . Amsterdam is about exploring the city and if you want a hotel right in the heart of it with a value for money pint at the bar , this is the hotel for you
  • (Friends)
Hotel in the center of Amsterdam
  • + Nice and friendly staff plus the cute cat. Room with window and it was possible to open.
  • No own bathroom in our room. No kitchen.
  • (Travelling alone)
good place if you're not picky.
  • + i had the whole floor to myself once the party-goers left at the end of the weekend. it was comfortable and the location was excellent.
  • i chose this hotel because i was told they had wi-fi, i was not able to access the internet from the hotel. i also chose the hotel because they were "smoker-friendly," the signs on the doors of the rooms say hash and grass are allowed in the bar but when i tried to smoke in the bar they told me it wasn't allowed anywhere in the hotel. the first night i stayed, a saturday, i could hear multiple people in multiple rooms being loud, slamming doors, throwing up in the bathrooms, running up and down the stairs... the walls are so thin you can hear all conversation in all surrounding rooms. this went on literally all night until check-out the next morning.
