“Galerij Hotel - Cheap & Cheerful”
If you are looking for cheap, clean, basic accomodation - look no further. The Galerij Hotel is about 2 minutes walk from Dam Square, the room was cleaned each day, we had fresh towels and the beds were comfortable. I have stayed in quite a few badget hotels in Amseterdam over the years and this one is definitely excellent value for money.
“Very basic hotel, but clean and in the best location”
The hotel is in a great location. 3 minutes walk to Dam square and 10 minutes walk to train station. Many cafe and shop close by. both tram and boat stops very close to the hotel. It is a very very basic hotel, but the room is very clean. Each floor has an extra WC(very clean as well), so if you stay in a room with 3 or 4 people, which I did. The extra WC was very useful. The staffs were OK, they don't talk much, but they were friendly. Breakfast was included, you get white or brown bread, cheese, different jam, butter... boiled egg and tea or coffee. Again very basic, but everything was freah, so I actually enjoyed it. The staires can be a bit of problem if you have large suitcase. Overall, the hotel is good, If you plan to spend most of your time out about and only go back for sleep. Then this is the best hotel you can find with this price.I'll go back and use it again if I go to Amsterdam again.
“Excellent value for money, but no use to anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs!”
Having read some of the negative reviews for this hotel, I was a bit sceptical about booking it. However, I took a chance as the intention was simply to use it 'to get my head down at night'. It turned out to be excellent value for money, the staff (I only saw 2 people, one of whome seemed to work 24/7), were very friendly and helpful. There was a good basic breakfast (0830 - 100Hrs), and the hotel was about a 10 minute walk from Dam Square and the Anne Frank House. Only negative point to this accommodation, was the extremely steep (almost vertical) stairs to the reception level. It's then take a breath an up again for another 37 steps if you are based at the top - this time in two stages.
“Good location / price trade-off”
Basic, but functional and helpful staff. Good location too, good value for money.
“better than expected”
After reading reviews our expectations werent that great, but we were pretty happy with the hotel, bearing in mind the amount of money we had paid. Staff were helpful, clean towels everyday and nice coffee for breakfast. The dining room is small though so we did miss breakfast one morning because it was full. For those with a small budget i`d definately recommend as the location is brilliant, just a few minutes walk from dam square.
“Don't take luggage!”
This is nice little hotel. It is about ten mins walk from the 'business side' of town (red light, canals, bars, etc) and is clean and staffed by nice people. However, i seriously would think twice if you are travelling with lots of luggage. I just had a small rucksack and those crazy steep stairs are not something I'd want to attempt with a suit case. Perfect for one or two nights.
“Great Price and location”
Very clean, nothing special. Great location and fantasic price.
“Depends what you're after”
I have to admit this isn't exactly what you would call a luxurious hotel, but if all you want out of a hotel during your trip to Amsterdam is a bed to sleep in after a wild night out, then this is your place. It's quite affordable and is only a short walk from Dam Square etc. The staff are friendly and helpful. Those stairs are steep though!
“Near dam square”
good place if you are looking for a cheap place near dam square.
