OK Hotel on Prinzengracht
Posted Mar 15, 2016
I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest place I could find that was located reasonably close to the major sites in Amsterdam but that still had a private bathroom. My room was clean and comfortable, although the walls were thin as I could hear everything going on in the other hotel rooms on the floor as well as in the adjacent building. The staff were all very friendly, particularly the cleaning staff who helped me find my room when I went to the wrong building (some rooms are in two other buildings separate from the hotel lobby). The hallways in my building appeared to be under renovation so there was a lot of dust on the bottom two floors, with dustmats placed along the stairwell. One major downside is that the hotel did not supply soap or shampoo in the bathroom.
Overall, an ok hotel if you want a bed and private bathroom and want to be in a reasonably central location. However, while Amsterdam is expensive, there are probably better value hotels out there.
