Good location. 15 min walk to town centre

Although this b&b is the bare basic it is clean and comfortable. Don't book an attic room however if you don't like stairs as there are in excess of 50 narrow steps. Good overall stay if you are happy with very basic accommodation.

Good Location, poor quality

Posted 09-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
Anyone wishing to stay at the Plantage would need to balance the requirement of a good location with the quality of the rooms and building. We were in the Attic - lowest cost rooms available at £85 night. The room was reached by 3 flights of extremely steep and narrow stairs - 51 steps to top. The décor was to put it bluntly dilapidated and I can back this up with photographs. The staff were helpful and spoke good English, cleaning of rooms is available on demand - not every day. The hotel is over a bar that is both excellent for food and company but also very noisy late into the night. Amsterdam is definitely not a cheap city to visit (as are few capital cities) so I cannot judge how well priced this was compared to other hotels in Amsterdam. I suggest that if this hotel had only one star someone had been mugged!

Cute hotel and has everything that you need.

Location is a bit far from dam Square, however, still walkable. Inside room has everything including fridge. The only thing is no lift. If you carry very big luggage, may want to reconsider. Overall, still quite ok.

Great hotel!

Posted 26-May-2014
This hotel is fantastic, it is very basic (as would be expected with a 2 star) but the rooms are spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and it is within walking distance of museumplien and Dam square....what more could you need? I'll be booking in at this hotel the next time I visit Amsterdam

Ideal for visiting the plantage area.

Posted 29-Apr-2014
Pros: Location, ambience, it felt safe, room facilities were great.
Cons: A lift to the top floor - lots of stairs - but it is very Amsterdam having lots of stairs.
Location: Great! Zoo just down the road, trams round the corner, plenty of eating/drinking in the area, lots of cultural sites nearby eg Resistance museum
We had a great time. The guy on reception was lovely.

Great Stay at this Hotel

Posted 08-Apr-2014
Pros: Away from the centre of town which was very peaceful at night. You were aloud to smoke in some rooms.
Cons: The beds and furniture in rooms could do with being upgraded.
Location: Excellent location if you do not wish to stay in centre. Only 10 min tram ride away from centre and 20-30 min walk. Right next to Artis Zoo.
My boyfriend and I went for my boyfriend birthday for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Plantage. The Directions on hotel own website helped us find hotel very well. The hotel is about 10mins tram ride from central station and about a 30 minute walk away if you prefer to walk it is a nice walk to see a little more of the area but I would get tram first to get your bearings. The hotel it self is what you pay for I would say it is a 3 star rating with steep stairs. Our first impression of hotel was what have we let ourselves in for but once we were settled in we were very pleased with our stay. We stayed in the loft room and were aloud to smoke. The staff was very helpful and friendly and you had your own key and can come and go and your own pace. The hotel is right next to the Artis Zoo which is a great day out. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Shabby, not maintained. Can do better elsewhere

Posted 31-Mar-2014 on Hotels.com
Location is great, but many other possible hotels and pensions for not significantly more cost. Plantage not maintained, extremely steep and very narrow stairs. In room - curtain off rod (12' high), tight space, weak internet, small safe didn't work, shower floor slippery, etc etc.
