The Lancaster Hotel Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Room with no air conditioning
Good location of hotel but going to your meant taking stairs for check in. Ate at the restaurant. The food was very good. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. The room was very small and had no air conditioning. The nearby area was quiet. It was nice to walk around.

Budget Hotel, very disappointing!
Tiny room, no towels, light, lamp, plugs didn’t work! Dirty carpet, tiny single beds pushed together with tiny individual quilts for a double? Very low budget hotel at best! Staff lovely but self check in and terrible rooms!

Everything was great. Only one thing was bad, the hotel ordered us a taxi which cheated us (charge us 3 times more than Uber (we took an Uber on our way back). After a lot of pressure that we had on the girl from the reception the taxi company came to the hotel and gave us back so of the money...

Check in was easy, and the guy helping us was helpful and friendly. The location was great as well. My only complaint was about the room. There were some insects flying around, and some spots on the sheets were stained/dirty. I didn’t enjoy being on the ground floor on the street with the traffic and noise in the early morning, but we did book last minute. I think overall the room was acceptable, I just don’t think it was worth the price I paid.

Lovely room, done to a high standard. Very quiet. Was easy to find and right opposite the zoo if you have children it's brilliant. The service from reception when we checked in wasnt the best I've received, I wanted to pay in cash and was asked to pay by card but the sign said cash payment was fine so this was sorted. When given our room number we were given the wrong direction and couldn't find it. When we came back to reception he was apologetic and then took us to our room on the other side of the building. He was pleasant and chatty.
