A budget Hotel well situated for exploring Amsterdam. On arrival we were greeted by a tatty foyer, and there was a problem with the booking of our breakfasts. However our room was clean and tidy, but beds were awful. The one my wife used had a hole in both sides of the mattress & the en-suite was tiny but functional....

Me and my wife spent 3 nights at the Iris Hotel, and its was more than suitable for a short-break at Amsterdam. It was basic and nothing exciting, but it was clean with the towels/bed sheets changed daily. The location was only a 10 mins walk to Rembrandt Square and 30 mins to the Red Light District and for people...

I understood when I booked this hotel that it was only 2 star however I did not expect a bed with no head board so you could not even relax to watch the TV. There was long black hairs in the shower which we showed the staff. The breakfast was poor value and unfortunately we payed in advance which is...

Clean. The front entrance stairs could be cleaner. Decor as stated previously needs freshened up. Our room 2 singles had only enough room to walk crabwise between beds. Didn't try the breakfast for €9. Walked over the bridge to Lidl bought pastries for €0.55! Would say it is let down by not having a kettle in the room not everyone...

Hotel was in a good location, staff helpful and friendly. However the negative side was the bedroom which I am sure was smaller than a prison cell, very small very little room at all. And the bathroom / toilet was beyond belief!!!! I could not even close the toilet door as my average 6.0 height meant that my legs entered...

Dirty and noisy but centrally located! We heard every noise around the hotel! The stairs were very narrow and dangerous with the luggage and your stuff generally! We stayed on the 3rd floor so that was a problem for us! The only thing that was okay was the location! Iris was very close to the centre! Didnt worth its money...

This was my 5th time in Amsterdam which is a really beautiful city unfortunately I cannot say the same about this hotel. We paid £270 for 3 nights which is the most we have paid and the worse experience. We were put in rooms 19 and 20 which were located next to the reception and breakfast room in the basement...

The room was fine. Nothing special, pretty small, clean. We asked for 1 double bed, but got two single ones, that was not the most convenient. The location is fine, about 10 minutes walking from where the beauty of Amsterdam starts, 20 minutes till the royal palace. The biggest problem was the Internet. It was very unstable, disappeared every 3...
