0.34km from Amona Food TruckWe arrived early on 20th December and had previously asked through Booking.com if we could check in early. They came back and told us we could, however, upon trying to check in we were told this was a Booking.com reply and not from the hotel itself. We were permitted to leave our suitcases and we were permitted to check in slightly earlier than the 2.00 pm normal time. We were grateful of this as we were soaking wet from the rain. The stairs are exactly as described, very steep and quite difficult to navigate with big boots on, however we did get used to these. Our room 207 was directly over the street and facing The Amstel. It was very noisy, particularly late at night. Rowdy people fighting on 2 nights, early collection or delivery of bottles to a local bar, but we did get back to sleep. The beds were very comfortable but the mattresses did keep slipping to the side for some reason. Tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. A hundred euro deposit is taken upon arrival and any purchases from the mini bar are taken from this. This deposit also covers the loss of any key. I didn't feel safe in the room as the door opened directly into the room and there was no chain to prevent anyone else from coming in. We could use the door lock but an internal chain provides more reassurance that the door won't be opened from outside. The towels were very small and had seen better days, holes and although clean they weren't the best. Adequate but not great. Our room was not cleaned the first day as we had been out the entire day, got back about 4.15 exhausted and soaking wet and the room had not been seen to by then. The maid arrived at about 4.40 but we just asked for clean towels as we wanted our privacy at this point. The room had been empty all day we considered this to be rather late to be inconvenienced after getting back wet and exhausted. The next day the room was cleaned before we got back. As advertised, the hotel does not have a restaurant and doesn't provide breakfast. The staff are friendly and it's a perfect location. We were due to leave on Christmas Day but left a couple of days earlier. We would recommend this hotel, but if you like a lush bathroom, nice towels and a little more in the way of room service, then this hotel probably isn't for you.
