0.1km from Coffeeshop SuperskunkFirst of all don’t believe all you read! I disagreed with a lot of reviews on here, and I’m not sure what people expected from a 2 star hotel (should be more) in the middle of a capital city! 😂 We loved this little gem in the middle of the Dam! Me and my partner visited Amsterdam for five days in November and stayed at the Acostar hotel for four nights. We stayed in room 303, with a double bed and bath. The room was small but comfortable, clean sheets and towels daily. Very clean, a comfy bed, and a flat screen smart TV which you could log in to your Netflix account with the assistance of google translate 😂. There is no lift in the hotel and a lot of stairs, which they love in the Netherlands 😂 so if you struggle be sure to ask for a ground floor room. No food, but there is a free coffee machine in the checkin area which you can use till midday, and.... all coffee I experienced in The Dam was amazing! Even from a machine! 😂 For food just down the road there is an awesome little bakery where you could get warm croissant for breakfast with cheese and ham! 😋 there are loads of other delicious options too! The staff are really helpful and they will even store your luggage for no additional cost before and after checkin too! Now the best thing about this hotel is the location! You are literally around 15 minutes walk from anything! The Art Quarter, The Red light District, Central Station, Amsterdam central square! There is a supermarket around 3 minutes walk away. Next door is cute little cafe, for those who visit Amsterdam wanting to partake, but if that’s not your thing 5 minutes walk away is the cutest bar serving an array of Belgian Beers and IPA’s called The Beer Garden! Reasonably Priced too! Where we sampled some amazing beers. There is indeed a gay bar opposite the hotel, but we never had any problems with noise or being woken up and our room directly faced the street. Thick curtains kept the light out allowing us to enjoy lie ins. ☺️ The next time we visit Amsterdam we will definitely be rebooking to stay at the Acostar! and would definitely recommend.
