Really Friendly Staff and Great Location
When I booked the Backstage Hotel I never noticed until a few days before our stay the toilets were shared. This isn't something we would normally go for but after sharing the toilet and staying at the Backstage I would book the same room again. The staff were super friendly and had no problem with us arriving after midnight. The location is lovely with Vondelpark just a few minutes away

Great location and fun vibe!
My family of five stayed here last week. The room was a bit tight with all of our luggage but we made it work. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful with pointing out places for us to see. Our location to everything was great. It can get a little noisy at night but that’s to be expected with this location being on the corner of a busier street. We didn’t come here to get tons of rest, but to see the sights, and that we did! Enjoyed a nice little breakfast at the hotel in the morning which consisted of coffee, juice, tea, a board of fresh lunch meats, delicious rolls and hard boiled eggs. Was nice to grab drinks at the bar as well. There was some construction going on outside of our window but it wasn’t a big issue because we started our days early and the work ended by the time we came back. Yes, the hall stairs are a big challenge with luggage but I had my husband and 3 sons to carry all the luggage. I’ve been told most of the old buildings are like this so we expected it going in. I would definitely stay here again as we felt it was a fun little place and it met our needs. If you require a lift or a spacious room/bathroom, then you’ll need to check in at one of the upscale expensive places but we enjoyed staying here for the old iconic Amsterdam building experience.
