Hotel was overpriced. It was very basic. The place stank of curry which after 3 nights had got into my clothes. unless you're booking last minute its not the bast place to stay in amsterdam.

College students stayed 3 nights in a 4-person room on the 2nd floor (American 3rd floor). It wasn't the top floor, so there were no slanted walls like someone here had mentioned. Ceilings were high, no stooping needed. The hotel was full with other young people, so there was not a 3-person room we could have switched to when one person in our group couldn't end up coming to Amsterdam.

- Yes, the stairs are steep. (and as far as we could tell, no elevator)
- Yes, there is a 40 euro key deposit, we got it back at the end. Unfortunately we only had 1 key card for room (so the 4 of us had to share)
- Yes, there is a surcharge if you pay by credit card or if you arrive past 10pm, but there's a bank machine not too far to help solve the first problem.
- Yes, there is a slight curry smell (but only in the reception area), as someone here mentioned, but I don't know why this bothered them. it's mild, not overpowering.
- Someone on here said they didn't get fresh towels and bedding each day. So we were surprised that we DID get new sheets and towels and room cleaning every day!
- Yes, the room is small, but it was spacious enough (even if all 4 of us had been there). We didn't have much baggage though, just backpacks.
- I had a great sleep every night. My friends had some trouble sleeping because the beds were too soft for them (you might even say they were sagging beds... but again, I had no problem with this so it depends on you).
- The owner was pleasant. (Didn't even give me dirty looks after I threw up in the stairwell on our first day.)
- Supposedly there is WiFi, but we didn't try it out because we didn't bring our laptops. There is no computer there for guests.

The location was great. Close to the museums and Vondel park, close to Melkweg where we had a concert to go to. Convenient to get around on the tram system.

We went on a weekend so a lot of hostels were booked up or expensive. A 4-person room at Sipermann hotel was the same price or even cheaper than if we had paid for 4 dorm beds in a hostel, so that's a main reason why we chose this hotel (we ended up paying 33 euro each per night, while the popular hostels can jack up their prices to 45 euro per night!). Coming from Eastern Europe, I still found these Western prices a shocker. (I rated this hotel as a 4/5 value, but that's only relative to other Amsterdam options.) Overall, I definitely recommend Sipermann hotel to budget travelers who can manage steep stairs.

Booked the place through the tourism counter at Schipol; What they did not tell me is the steep staircase - 20 small steps without a bend! Most accommodation is on the first, second or third floors. I was on the second floor. Oh - the tourist board accepted fully payment at the counter.

On reaching the place, they wanted a 'key deposit' of 40 Euros; Had no cash on me; The choice was to pay by credit card and yes, there is a surcharge for using credit card; The other option was to surrender my passport, for which no receipt was given; The room had a funny smell and felt like I was in some one else's place! The shower on the 2nd floor did not work well - There was either no adequate pressure for the water or it is designed to tick a box with the tourist board without actually providing what is needed.

One of the many poor customer experiences in Amsterdam, that adds to the list of why the city as a whole is so over-rated and fails to deliver basic services despite an expensive price tag. The tourist board are also to blame for certifying such shoddy places

Slept the first night, but the second night was up the entire night waiting for dawn!

We stayed for 4 days. As we did not had big luggages but only handuggages the space was enough. i could imagine this room with 2 extra luggages... Clean towels everyday, but not the sheets ( 4 days the never changed our sheets, even though they told me that the maid service is every 2 days) Very close to the center and very quiet. Staff friendly but only if you call them with a ring bell at the reception. I found unacceptable that we had to pay extra money (10 euro per hour) for checking in after 10 o clock in the night. ( We arrived 11:30, so we paid 15 euro extra for something that it was not our fault as we landed 10:00 (!) plus a VAT of 6%, so we finally paid around 30 euro more than what the reservation said.) Above all, we paid 40 euro more as a deposit for the key, which we got back when we checked out! I have never seen something like this before! It is just ok only if you need a bed. Nothing special. Free WiFi - poor signal.

We did stay here one week. To make a long story short...

what we did like:
- the hotel is in a very good position, a few steps from the entertainment area of Leidsenplein and from some of the most important museums (Van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk museum).
- the changed towels every day

what we did not like:
- the room was so small it was difficult to move in two persons and to find place to put our belongings; furnishing was dated except for the bathroom where, anyhow, all was minimal; no shower gel supplied, only two small soap bars for the entire week.
- they kept a 40 Euro deposit for the electronic key: never seen in any other hotel I've been.
- they make you pay 10 Euro for each hour after 10 p.m. in case of late check in: never seen in any other hotel too. We checked in before 10 p.m. but the booking terms of conditions stated that.
- they charge you of a 5% if you pay by credit card, forcing you to arrive with a bunch of banknotes (as we did) if you don't wont to pay this surplus: again, never seen.
- the price was unreasonable for what we got.

I wouldn't definitively recommend this hotel.
