Reviewed 26 October 2012

The girl at reception was lovely and helpful! our room was about 2 minutes away down the street in a building they had just taken over ( and needs to be done up as we had a socket hanging off the wall, chipped paintwork and it was a bit of a dive) the door to out room was half glass, so i had to put a poster over this for privacy!there were 3 really loud and annoying guys in the room next door, and they made a lot of noise one night and needed to be told to shut up quite a few times!

But... the sheets were super clean and white! an the shower was lovely with plenty of hot water! bathroom was nice enough. They lent me a socket adaptor so i could charge my phone!

its a good location because its not on a noisy street but is only a 5minute walk to the square where theres lots of lively bars and cafes! and then lots of great shops !

The hotel owner came and apologized to us for lack of sleep we'd had from being woken up! and he was really nice and friendly.

basically you get what you pay for! next time i will pay more and get a nicer room in a nicer building!

Room Tip: Ask what floor your room will be on and if its on a noisy street if you are wooried about getting sl...

The location is excellent... 2 minute walk to the Leidesplein area. Train station is easily accessible by the nearby tram stop. The room was clean and comfortable, however we did wake up in the night to a mouse rummaging around. The shared bathrooms were also reasonably clean. Would recommend to anyone wanting to travel to Amsterdam on a budget.

Before coming here we read the previous reviews and were worried, but our experience here exceeded our expectations. We spent five nights here and we weren't troubled by bedbugs, we didn't see any cockroaches and we didn't see, or hear, any mice or rats. The only bugs we actually saw was the occasional fly (very tiny).
The bathroom in our private room smelled a lot like mold and it was quite overwhelming at times. The shower leaked water onto the bathroom floor and it took a long time before it vaporized. Also at times there would be an awful smell (besides the smell of mold) coming from the shower drain. But if you closed the bathroom door this would still be okay.
The window was not at all air-tight, the wild blew right through it and the noisy street outside sometimes bothered us at night. But all is well with ear plugs. Also the walls were quite thin.
There was also a spot on the floor that was constantly moist (?), might have been caused by a faulty radiator.
Narrow stairs, not good for big luggage. Cleaned rooms every day with fresh towels. Our experience was not at all like bad reviews say here fortunately, and you really do get what you pay for.
Great location.

Stayed here with 2 friends in a triple room. We arrived at the Hotel to check in, if you are expecting friendly customer service forget it. We had to wait until the receptionist finished playing on their mobile before we were served. We were demanded to pay the full amount before receiving our room key, I didn't mind this but a heads up would have been good. The room was really really small and dull, the whole place is tired and delapitated. The WiFi doesn't work. We met 2 girls who were staying one floor below who had mice running around their room. I would highly recommend you don't stay here unless you have no other options. The only thing Hotel Marnix has going for it is its location, everything else is dismal.

Room Tip: There are none!
