Good value for money Oct 08, 2012
I stayed at this hotel only for one night. I looked for a low budget hotel which I've found with the King Hotel.

The first impression was great because I had to ring a bell to get in. The front door is always locked.

The hotel is located 2 minutes by foot from Leidsplein which is easy to reach via public transport (bus or tram). Because it's located in the city center all touristic destinations are reachable by foot which is a great plus because the parking fee in Amsterdam is extraorbitant.

The hotel is situated in a house built in 17th century and it's said that Mata Hari (1876 - 1917 dutch exotic dancer, courtesan and spy) stayed here.

Checking in was done fast and the staff was very kind and helpful. I could check-in before 3 p.m. (officially check-in time) because my room was already finish.

I booked a single room which was tiny and dark and a "view" doesn't really exist. The window was blocked by a scaffolding. Usually I would have seen a tiny inner courtyard ;) I didn't mind though because I didn't spend my day in there anyway.

There was an electric kettle to prepare tea or coffee which I was happy about. I really needed a cup of coffee after 4 hours in a train.

The bathroom was tiny also but clean. I missed a shower curtain though. After having a shower the whole room was flooded.

I've booked the room with breakfast included. The breakfast was basic and it came in buffet style. There was bread, cereals, eggs, yoghurt, jam, cheese and cold cut as much as you wanted. Coffee, tea or milk as well.

All in all it was a good deal. I've payed € 55 for a room breakfast and Wifi included. More information on:

Seems basic, but a good deal for the price just for somewhere to sleep.

Ideally located budget hotel Nov 24, 2010
This perfectly situated just next to the Leidseplein in Amsterdam. The Liedseplein is teaming with bars and restaurants and during the time that we were there there was also a temporary ice skating rink. So the hotel is just right for stumbling home after a night on the town. Getting to all of the tourist attractions is easy, its right on 3 tram lines and within 2 km of all of the major sights.

Inside, well its small, clean and comfortable and for the price we paid, surprisingly good! Just watch out for the ridiculously steep stairs, we used the lift most of the time!
