Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 162 reviews

Fair 4.0
Slightly nicer than a hostel- a let down
I stayed in the superior room- the title is misleading, this was a basic double at best. The console wasn’t working (it seems no one had bothered to check before check in) and the bathroom door was also broken. Both had to be fixed upon our arrival- not a great start. No apology provided. No tea/coffee making facilities or safety deposit box in the room. Bed was comfortable enough. Avoid the breakfast like the plague- of the extensive list shared via email ads ahead of my stay- only half was actually served. The hot food that was served was cold. When I complained there was no apology or explanation. Fine if you are looking for essentially something than a hostel with games thrown in (oh, you have to pay to use the games room!). Wouldn’t recommend.

Very good 8.0
Little bit of a distance from the centre, costing a bomb in taxis, but really nice staff, really clean hotel, would recommend
James, gb3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
An awesome concept but only a decent stay
Really lovely idea, great presentation of lobby area, concept is really cool, room was on the basic side of comfort, some old decor and low level sealant on the windows, very thin walls. Overall, a nice place but not too quiet or as comfortable as I would have hoped.

Cool hotel!
Such a cool hotel in a great location. Close to many cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and independent shops. The Metro 52 (Zuid) is 3 minutes from the hotel which you get from Amsterdam Central Station and the tram number 3 stops on Sarphatipark while number 4 tram stops 4 minutes away so lots of choices. The staff were all wonderful and extremely helpful. The breakfast was well worth the fee. The smiling ladies who prepared and served breakfast each day did an amazing job! Our room was very small but it was okay for our stay as we only needed a bed to sleep in at the end of a day. Was disappointed with there not being a full length mirror in our room and the shower cubicle was a bit tight. The Arcade is in a quiet location opposite Sarphatipark which is a gorgeous park to explore along with the many others in Amsterdam. We stayed previously when it was formally the Aalborg Hotel and intend to return to the Arcade on our next trip.

Cool hotel in a great area
Neat hotel. Good decor. Great vibe to the place. I only wished I could have stayed longer to make the most of it. The surrounding area is lovely. A park just opposite with lots of cafes, restaurants and burger bars used by the locals. Easy tram and train to the rest of the city or a really enjoyable walk.

The smallest most basic room I have ever stayed in no facilities, no restaurant, not even sandwiches available as all sold out. scruffy appearence tiny bed not enough bed covers, very noisy from lift and terrible road noise.€130 per night breakfast extra. Sorry but this was more of a hostel than a hotel basic Basic Basic

Good 6.0
I do not recommend.
Claustrophobic rooms with no proper bright light in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet very poor and not enough for all the guests that came for a breakfast at the same time. Sad to say, me and my friend we did not like this hotel. It's better to spend some extra money and stay somewhere else.
