Solo female traveler, stayed here for 4 nights late April. Extremely nice gentleman at reception who provided me with helpful tips on sightseeing. As previously mentioned, tram stop right out front and 5 minute walk (if that) to Leidseplein, 10 minute walk to museum district, many affordable eating options stone's throw distance, nice fairly quiet neighborhood. Room was spotlessly clean,...

The Abba is not kidding: it is a BUDGET hotel. That means that if you get a double, that means your twin beds will be pushed together. If youre travelling with a significant other, I suggest being careful you dont fall through the crack in the middle of the beds! The sheets are all sewn together and the whole place...

I stayed a single room. It's value for money. If u want to stay a single room this is good. Room a bit dirty and smelly, but it's bearable. Hotel is not too small. Staff is friendly. Tram is just outside, very convenient. 30 min walk to red light district.

We've spent 3 nights at Hotel Abba in January 2006. It was our 6-7th visit in Amsterdam, but first in this hotel. There were some things that we liked but unfortunately the majority of things we didn't like. Obviously, the positive thing was the price. The breakfast was also okey (the same as in any other hotel). TV set in...

I stayed at the Abba Hotel in April 05. It was a great place to stay, friendly staff, clean, reasonable rates, and right off the #1 tram line. I will be staying there again this Spring.

Well situated and excellent for the tram as there is a tram stop outside the entrance to the hotel that goes directly to the train station. Also a late night convenience shop opposite as well which was useful for bottles of water and snacks. Friendly staff. Be prepared to carry your case up very steep & narrow stairs (I was...

You cannot find a better value than this hotel. I paid 35 euro a night for a single/shared bath. Steps from the Leidseplein area which has dozens of bars and restaurants. Tram stop is right in front of the hotel, though I reccomend a bike. The staff here is really nice and eager to help you find some great things...
