    Great Location

    Staff was excellent - welcoming, helpful -- delightful people.

    We arrived late night, and only room available was adequate but tiny -- up 4 flights of narrow stairs.

    “My tip: Convenient location to great restaurants and entertainment. Love it ”

    Find somewhere else to stay

    Has free wifi

    When I went it was a building site and very noisy due to decorators, the showers where full of building muck and materials. At night its noisy until about 3am due to being close to red light district. The rooms are small and beds even smaller. Finally, Yes, the comment about mouse traps in the rooms (even on second floor) are true.

    Friendly place, great location.. :)

    We stay in Hotel Continental every time we visit Amsterdam because of its perfect location (5 minutes walk from train station and surrounded with bars, coffeeshops and restaurants) and its friendly and helpful people.

    It's definitely not a luxury place, so expecting the comfort of your home would not be meaningful. However, it's not very cheap either so there are some problems to be solved. Mainly, the building (loose stairway, the smell coming from toilets and the uneasy beds in some rooms) should be renovated.

    Great location, but clearly a discount hotel.

    Good location, clean hotel (for an old building)

    Small rooms, noisy area, shared bathrooms/showers.

    What we needed!

    Area, hygiene, space, price.

    light in the room, cheap furniture.


    Young couples juli 2010

    Nice location, full of young people, but expensive.

    Location and the fact that the place was clean.

    Expensive for such a small room and no extra-services.

    Cheap hotel, fantastic location near central station

    Fantastic location, right near central station. Loads of bars and restaurants nearby. Rooms were really clean, though did smell quite strongly of bleach, double bed was very comfortable though a little on the small side. For the price, can't complain!

    Bed was a little small but other than that it was good value for the little we payed!


    Friends februari 2010

    good on average

    good location you get what you paid for

    Great place to stay for location, what we expected.

    Excellent location, right in the heart of the city. Rooms were cosy.

    Not the cleanest of places. Sheets were dirty.


    Friends augustus 2009

    Location great, can be loud.

    Location, Cleanish, one guy behind the desk was helpful.

    can be very loud during the night as it is right on the main street. One of the guys behind the desk was a little rude. U pay for what you get, It was one of the cheaper options and the location was perfect for us, u just have to put up with the noise from the street.

    Noisy night in a nice simple hotel

    friendly uncomplicated athmosphere

    lot of noise from the street during the night


    Other augustus 2009

    No value for money hotel

    Center of town. Main public transport just few steps away.

    The room has no fan or aircond. It was hot during my stay (summer). No place for shower!! just a toilet to share with others. The worse hotel I ever stay during my 7 days tour in Europe. To make it worse, the price is among the highest

    Great place for people on a budget

    The location was great as the hotel is really close to the central station and you can walk straight into the red light district from the hotel. The staff was really nice and housekeeping was good. We stayed in an ensuite room and the bath was really nice and big (compared to other budget hotels where I\'ve often experienced problems with the water and space in general).


    Young couples juli 2009

    Great location, limited space in room

    Location was the best point, as was close to all the places,bars etc I wanted to go to in Amsterdam. Interesting people staying there

    as I had single room I wanted somewhere to hang my clothes, could have had some hooks on the wall or something. Couple of the staff were a bit rude
