This was the cheapest place on booking.com. The staff were lovely. Room was basic but very clean, just what we needed. And the beds were really comfortable. Slept great! Will definitely be using this hotel again.

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
