    Red Light District

    The location of this small hotel in the middle of the red light district was a plus. It was easy to walk around and see the sights. The staff were helpful with information about Amsterdam.

    The narrow very steep staircase was difficult to climb especially if you had a room on the third floor.

    “My tip: Ask for a room on a low floor. Good breakfast buffet.”

    Great breakfast, reasonably priced drinks

    Expensive for standard of accommodation


    Travelling alone juni 2012


    The place is very nice, has small rooms, but for the price one pays it is well worth it. As you don't spend much time in the room, this is also not a problem. Service was great, all bedding was perfect. Would go back there next time.

    Can be a bit noisy form people in the streets, but not to bad.

    The torenzicht is an absolute perfect place to stay in Amsterdam, I stayed in a triple room with my two brothers there was plenty of space,clean ,comfortable and safe, 24 hr security door that u need to be buzzed in to gain entry and only 5 to 10 min walk to most places, bathroom and showers very clean , staff very helpful and polite, hotel bar open 24 hrs to guests, b/fst very good ,I know were I will be staying next time

    Honestly can't think of any

    “My tip: Book now”


    Friends mei 2012

    Great place and ideal for long weekend stay to enjoy Amsterdam.

    Location Price versus other hotels nearby No so load than expected considerint the bar in the bottom floor.

    Breakfats (only based on English need) Load only due to the street trafic but helps us to get the atmosphere of Amsterdam.

    Good value centrally located hotel

    The hotel is situated in the red light district which is between Central Station and Dam square. I booked a single room (they gave me a twin) which was clean, warm and basic with washing facilities, a shower and toilet were just outside my room. Breakfast was very english and tasty and as much as you like served between 9.30 - 10.30.

    None really as i was satisfied with what I had paid for, just 45.00 euro B & B , good value for a city centre hotel.

    hotel name should be called..Back In Time...

    Great location for coffee shops and red light district

    Room was in need of a serious update, not very clean, ie stains on the walls and carpets, shared toilet and shower that was from the dark ages, ie no heating or shower curtain

    “My tip: as above....”


    Friends december 2011

    Stay away from here

    Very good location, free Wi-Fi

    A lot of noise from the street, stale food at breakfast and very poor hygiene.

    Good, central-located budget-hotel

    We were surprised in a positive way. We stayed for a weekend and had a 3 bed private room with toilet and shower in the hall. The room was quite simple but bigger than expected. The toilets and showers seemed relatively new and were clean and descent. Linen and towels were included, so you don't have to bring that (they don't mension that anywhere). The hotel is situated in the red light district right beside a striptease club and across from the sex museum, but we didn't feel unsafe at any time, there was always a lot of people around having a good time, and it's only a 5 min walk to Dam square. There was a 24 hour reception consisting of a bar on the ground floor which was actually quite cosy, and the staff were polite and helpful. There was a breakfast buffet from 9 to 10. It wasn't the best breakfast but it was convenient that we didn't have to go out to get a quick bite to eat when we were hungover.

    The biggest minus is the noise (in the weekend anyway, don't know about monday to thursday). There is a lot of noise from the street all day and most of the night, probably until around 4 or 5 in the morning. The hotel is very exposed to the noise from the street and from other rooms so it is not a bad idea to bring earplugs. All in all I would definitely stay here again if I went to Amsterdam with friends and we were on a budget.

    good location, but too expensive

    the staff was nice, the breakfast as well. in a good location in the heart of the red light district.

    the hygiene. the rooms and the baths are old and not that clean as if one would expect. definetly too expensive for such a dirty room.

    I'd definetely recommend this hotel if you want this location.

    If you want to see the Red Light District, the location is perfect, therefor the price is ok. (80e for 1 night) Staff was fine :). When I booked the hotel (2 weeks in advance), I paid online. When I arrived at the hotel, the receptionist asked me to pay for the room, and I did.. I don't know why she asked me, and I don't know why I paid. A couple hours after I left the next day, I realised I paid twice. When I got home I sent them an email about it asking for a refund. 1 and a half week later (after I called again) I checked my bank account and I saw the money was booked back into my account. Phew! Thank you very much! Hotel room is basic, 2 single beds, small cabinet for clothing, small refridgerator and a sink. Toilets and shower were in the hallway. There was a dried up stain on the rooms floor, other than that, it was clean. The toilets were nice and clean. All and all: I'd definitely recommend this hotel if you want this location.

    The stairs are cheap, and very narrow, hard if you have a big bag/suitcase. If you want to see the Red Light District, the location is perfect, therefor the price is ok. (80e for 1 night)
