If price, basic accomodation and location is all you need, PAX is good for you. We stayed 4 people in a 4 people room which was ok. Small toilet and a separate bathroom without toilet. Breakfast comes to the door in the mornings. Not the cleanest but ok to bear for a few days. The good side is the bargain... More

As far as budget hotels go, this is about as good as you'll get in Amsterdam. Pax is a two minute walk from the Dam Square on one direction, and the Anne Frank Huis and nearest canal bus stops are the same distance in the opposite direction. The hotel is quite cheap but unlike a lot of cheap hotels it... More

This was my first deployment to 'Dam and Hotel Pax would be my base. The hotel is strategically well-located half-a-click south-west-west of the city square. It's the perfect spot to launch your assault on the museums and nightlife/afternoonlife alike. Pax was (and still is, I assume) a short march from the train station. This also includes a steep march up... More

It was my first trip to Amsterdam, and it was a really nice experience! Hotel Pax I chose for its location that is really great. You can reach many interesting places so easy. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes around. And really the area is just so nice! My room was upstairs, and bathroom and toilet were shared.... More

Great central location with nice big rooms (atleast the one we got was). It has kind of a hostel feel as we had shared washrooms and toilets, but that's not an issue with us. Great place for a younger couple to stay while exploring Amsterdam, as we we're. Cheap but much more private than a hostel. Would definitely stay here... More

Getting there: Hotel Pax was extremely easy to find! From Centraal hop on a number 13 tram towards Dam Square and Anne Frank Huis and get off at either stop as the hotel is located between the two. Location: The location was perfect, with many attractions within walking distance. Anne Frank Huis was only a five minute walk away, you... More

Location: This budget hotel is very well located. It is in the city centre but away from the jam packed chaotic scene. If you came with small luggage it is walkable from the central station. You can also take tram to reach this hotel. If you don't know which tram to take, ask around, people in amsterdam are really helpful... More

Well-located 1-star hotel, close to the Dam square. The owner is very helpful and friendly. Our room (number 14) was basic and clean, with a balcony, minibar, tv and free wi-fi. It's the room beside the reception desk, so it was a bit noisy. Regarding the stairs... well, in Amsterdam many hotels will be like this. Unfortunately, we happened to... More

Okay, the stair really are ROUGH, but that's not a big deal given the fact that - it's Amsterdam! - all the stairs are more or less the same and awful (good for your work out).

Bottom line: 1) The hotel owner is SUUUUUUUPER nice and helpful. That goes a long way. 2) Rooms are clean but VERY small. 3) If you're traveling on a budget or backpacking around Europe, this is a great hotel. If you're wanting some comfort and a quiet hotel with some amenities, this is not for you. 4) You will hear... More
