The hotel was average. I know that prices in Amsterdam are quite high, but well...I think it was too expensive for the type of room we had. 2 separate beds in a mini room, one of the beds was just in front of the wardrobe, so there was no way to open it if you didn't move the bed. The... More

Hotel in excellent location, close to tram lines, and walking distance to all main sights. Breakfast adequate but nothing special. Our rooms were on top floor, quiet but did smell of smoke! We were unaware when we booked that this is a hotel that 'welcomes smokers'. If I had known this I wouldn't have booked and because of this wouldn't... More

I was only in Amsterdam for 1 night but had a great stay at Hotel Abba. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was really quiet considering it's on one of the main roads. The location is ideal, just a short walk to the Van Gogh museum and it's easy to... More

clean and efficient, nothing fancy but a great location. Love the mix of people and hangovers. Book ahead though as always very busy. Breakfast is basic but a great cup of coffee and enough for any one

I should say that I stayed when it was too warm to keep the windows closed and was on the second floor facing the street. This is a terrible room location due to tram noise. Amsterdam also continues a sirens-on policy at night. I have not slept so poorly in many years. I had to excuse myself to use the... More
