Traveled to Amsterdam with my best friend. Looking for a place to pass out after museum-hopping and partying, and this was the perfect place. Not luxury by any means, but a great place to sleep! Comfortable bed and hot shower. Daniel at the front desk was awesome - got us into our room early, and gave us directions to a...

Stayed here alone during a 3 day trip right before Christmas. If you don't want to read on, in short, this hotel is great. When I arrived in Amsterdam after an overnight flight from the USA, I was extremely tired and just wanted to rest in my hotel room. My arrival time, however, was pre-dawn and by the time I...

I realize this is a budget hotel but I've gotten great deals before without sacrificing basic quality. This hotel was disgusting. The rooms were tiny, I could touch both walls with my hands extended, and the walls were paperthin. I was put in between two couples travelling together and got very little sleep, even with earplugs. I could hear every...

Stayed here for 4 nights on a budget trip back in June 2007. Spent about 55 EUR per night for a single room with breakfast. I had to go through small stair case to reach the room.The room was small, carpeted, but 'quite' clean. There was a single bed, a cloth hanger, and that's it. The toilet is separated from...

The toronto man at the reception desk was very unfriendly - made multiple snarky comments about our "uncivilized" country of origin. It calls itself a hotel, but it is more akin to a bad hostel. Rooms were very small and exceedingly hot - but if you open the windows to let in some air, you won't be able to sleep...

I was upgraded to a twin room from the pe-booked single at no extra cost. Room just adequately furnished, but clean and warm. Staff friendly and helpful. Bathroom shared with one other room. No washbasin in room. Breakfast goodish - plenty but a bit unimaginative. A bit noisy because on a main tram route. Close to main museums, Vondel Park...

We were on the top floor, so we had to carry suitcases up four flights of steep stairs. The shared shower/toilet with one other room was a surprise. Otherwise, breakfast, service, welcome, advice and safe deposit box were very good. We chose the hotel because it was the only one with a reasonable price for our visit. As advertised, we...

We stayed here for 2 nights in late May. We were on the next to the highest floor and the stairway is very steep. Located right at a tram stop so that is the best way to get to the hotel from the train station. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was included. The room included a double bed, bed...

This review is a little late as I stayed at this hotel around the World cup in the summer of 2006. It was very hard to get a room at any hotel for a decent rate because of the world cup but managed to get a decent rate at the Abba for 3 people. I was a little skeptical at...

Hotel Abba is a good budget accommodation if you are willing to drag yourself and your bags up a steep staircase - just my luck that our rooms were at the top most floor :(. If we forget anything in the room - we just left it since none of us were willing to climb up those scary steps more...
