Hotel Torenzicht Amsterdam Reviews
Best budget hotel I've ever stayed in Jun 09, 2011
I paid less than 60€ a night for this hotel, and I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to get but travel reviews said it was brilliant so I went for it. :) I normally don't like shared bathroom set-ups but the bathrooms/toilets here were not only clean, they were modern and very well kept also. I do remember that the water pressure wasn't quite what I would have liked but certianly better than a couple of other places I've stayed at for twice the price in Amsterdam.
Location-wise, brilliant. Center of the red-light district (interesting how you find it much easier to take a healthy walk around the block before heading home when your district is more interesting :p ); metro is 100m across the square and a supermarket right nearby as well.
There's also a bar downstairs at the hotel - seemed quite popular although I never popped in myself other than on check-in/check-out (that's where reception is too). It has a massive projection screen on the wall so great for the sports you're not at home for too. :)
Oh - you get your own fridge in the room too! Magic. :)
Couple of things I didn't like:
- The hallway to the rooms is controlled by a lock which staff need to open; and when coming late at night they ask to see your room card which I felt was a little over-the-top. Then again, given the area maybe it makes sense. No big deal in any case, but it's something. :)
- Only one power socket in the entire room, and you need that for the fridge.
- Breakfast was 9-10am only, which meant I could never use it since I need to be out the door by 7am for work. I still haven't managed to find a place with breakfast early enough but only one hour starting at 9 is kinda ridiculous.
All in all though it's tremendous value and the general standard is great, even exceptional considering the price.
