This is called Budget Hotel Ben and the clue is in the title, however I was still surprised at how basic the hotel was., We paid €400 for a twin room for 3 nights - bedroom, bathroom and beds were very small, had to sit...More

I was hosted in this hostel for 3 days in Amsterdam with a girl friend. The cleaner (a guy in his 50's) got in as we were sleeping in shorts (that is not good even though we had been covered), he just came and clean...More

I'll start with the positives, it's in a great location and it was cleanish. That's it. The stairs leading to the room were ridiculously steep and dangerous. The room was tiny, the beds felt like sleeping on a rock and the bathroom was so small...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
