    Fabulous

    The location was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. Its not recommended however for anyone with a lot of luggage or mobility problems. We stayed on the 4th Floor and the stairs were steep. There is no lift, which was not a problem for us fortunately.

    Good

    The staff were very friendly, considerate and were willing to offer information and help with any queries.In respect of the money we paid most things were fine.

    The water in the showers either ran too hot or cold.

    Superb

    centrally located, friendly staff, old fashion decor with character. we did not have find tranport to see the best sights of amsterdam. we actually stay at the old quarter since your friendly staff Amy saw our heavy lugguages and suggested for us to be put there rather then the old nickel. Eventhough we are prepared for whatever come we are very please there was a lift at the old quarter.Thanks to Amy our stay wa made very special.

    Just a bit disappointed that we missed out on the red cabbage with meat stew for dinner when we returned for our meal before leaving Amsterdam that evening. No other complaints.

    This is a poorest Hotel I have had the misfortune to stay in. Over priced on everything. Rooms are small and where we were very noisy until 4.a.m. in the morning (Every morning) Never offered food so cannot comment on this service. At almost £200 per night I feel we were mugged. It has put me off Amsterdam permanently!

    Close to rail station.

    Fabulous

    We stayed only for 1 night coz we needed to sleep over in AMS. The hotel is perfect is you just want to sleep in it. The location if the best!!!! Theres many shops where you can smoke weed around. You gotta walk like 1 min :)

    Wireless didn't work at and it was too hot in the room. :(

    Exceptional

    Old Nickel is a lot more than just a hotel. It is run by the people who truly enjoy what they do. As a result, the downstairs pub gathers the cool crowd, well into the night. The rooms are clean, functional and 100% adequate for the price you pay. Next time I am in Amsterdam, I already know where I would stay.

    Very good

    The location. To see what Amsterdam is famous for, it's ideal. Cheap, no hassle. Small rooms but who cares when all of Holland's Soho is on your doorstep.

    This not a complaint because it was a good trip but the Dutch breakfast waitress is so rude to paying guests. She should have her own turn at the Comedy Store with her 'texting verboten in the bar' routine.

    Very good

    The hotel was in a great location, so close to central station that we spotted it just wandering toward the city centre, could not be better! The staff were very friendly when we came to the bar to check in which was very quick and easy, and rooms, despite being pretty basic were clean and a decent size, as well as being very well heated, important when its nearly December in Amsterdam!

    The Old Nickel Bar serves as the reception for the hotel rooms, which are very close down the street, however this meant when myself and my boyfriend found ourselves locked out of our room at about 1am there was no one to contact, the bar was closed and therefore no answer on the phone numbers provided, which meant we had to spend the entire night sleeping in the shared shower and missed the event we came to Amsterdam for! I think there should always be someone from the hotel you can contact, that's pretty standard. However on this occasion it may have been our own fault for getting locked out in the first place!

    The hotel rooms were very clean and secure. The staff were very helpful. I would happily stay here again,and recomend it to anyone.

    Fabulous

    - Location is great: 3 minutes walk from the central station and 5 minutes from Red Lights district; - Bar is the lobby is awesome. - Breakfast sufficient, yet, the same every day.

    - It's hard to adjust water in the shower (either cold or too hot).

    Very good

    Amsterdam is expensive and this was the cheapest centrally located room I could find, but 60 euros is not what I consider a deal (but most backpackers I could find were 35 in a 10 bed dorm). I stayed in a single room that looked onto the main street which was nice. The room was clean but small (expected as the hotel is in a typical old-style Dutch building) The breakfast was decent, sliced bread (normal and white), bacon and egg omelet, jams, coffee or tea. The bathrooms and showers are also shared. All in all for central Amsterdam it was a good deal and 3 minutes walk to Central Station.

    The only negative I would have is that the shower was really hard to control the temperature...either hot hot or cold. Kinda of annoying.

    V friendly welcome and staff. Fresh bedding and towell daily. Small telly in room.Right in city center, short stroll from station handy for arrival and leaving.

    Breakfast was not great.

    Superb

    Its location, friendly non-judgemental staff, a vibrant atmosphere at night. Will definitely come again. Breakfast was simple but very tasty and sufficient. Loved the bar area with its wooden panelling.

    We were on the top floor up 4 fights of stairs which did my old knees in a bit (I'm a middle-aged woman) but not a problem for the short stay of 2 nights. If this was longer I may wish to think about the stairs.
