8/10 Very good

The Lancaster was well situated near the tram lines. It’s good for a family of 4 although room is small - typical of Amsterdam hotels. We came during winter so no problems with heating, it was toasty warm and the children were not complaining.

2/10 Poor

The room that I reserved on-line looked much larger than the room I received. Room was tiny. Not enough room to shower or shave. Do not recommend.

4/10 Fair

One night in Amsterdam
Room classed as a quadruple but was a double room with a extra couple of beds with a foot gap between, luckily we were only staying a night. The decor was tired and the windows rusty, nothing looked particularly clean but could just of been the age of the fittings. Parking was advertised but turned out to be about 500m away in a open air public car park which was not free but was a reduced rate, still €22 for one night, as the hotel had a deal. The hotel would only provide one reduced rate ticket per day. The hotel was very expensive for what we experienced, should of been a third of the price.

Very good value for the price. Anything you want to see, you can walk to, or take public transportation with a stop very close to the hotel. It's not air-conditioned so be wary of this if booking in summer months. The on-site breakfast is 17 euros and is an excellent value.

Not bad considering price
Hotel was quite average, staff were super friendly and guided us to correct public transport needed ect. Room was very hot and only an old plug in fan in the room so was an uncomfortable night.

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel, within walking distance of tourist attractions, though not really in the city center so you will likely be walking a lot. Two negative points: 1. We thought the price of the hotel was too high for what it offers. The hotel is nice, just not nice enough to justify the price. 2. Room cleaning is very superficial. Bathrooms are not thoroughly cleaned for example.
