10/10 Exceptional

Clean, friendly and well located :)
Easy and friendly check-in. The room was clean, they gave me a room with a balcony and view which was a bonus and the staff were very friendly. Highly recommend for a budget and well located hotel.

Comfortable and Well-Situated
Second time at the Prinsen Hotel and would definitely recommend to other travelers. Just outside of the busy Leidsplein area, the surroundings are quiet and low-key. The day/night and housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and, while small, contains everything you need to be comfortable. The outdoor seating area is very appreciated. I will definitely consider this hotel again when visiting the area.

Good location, but beware of room size.
The hotel was tidy and it is very close to major attractions in the city of Amsterdam. The breakfast was reasonable too. However, my only complain was that I was given a very, very small room, about the size of two single beds. I was surprised that the charge of this room is the same as my friend, who had a room twice the size. I think the hotel should be fair and charge less for an attic room.

The Good The Bad And The Ugly .
The Hotel staff are nice and helpful. No drinks at the bar it was closed and no draft beer we went down the road to the Marriot. We had room 17 which is far too small for 2 people as one has to climb over the other to get out of bed and the sink is in the bedroom . Def not worth what it cost us. The room is very hot at night ( without the heating on ) so we had the window ajar but the noisy drunks wake you up outside coming back from clubbing between 3 and 5 .30 am . Next time get a room at the back of the hotel .Breakfast is not great either !The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean and nice cotton. PS no kettle in the room. Sorry I will not be back !

6/10 Good

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Sadly my room was extremely small and extremely hot… at least 6degrees C hotter than the outside. No fan was provided. So overall the room was not comfortable. The toilet was very difficult to use due to the lack of space. My room was made up, bathroom supplies replaced but bed was not made which I found strange. Breakfast was okay just toast, pastries… some eggs or bacon would’ve been nice. Enjoyed the cat.

Great Location! Lovely Garden & Helpful Staff
We had a lovely stay at Prinsen Hotel - just a quick walk from Leidseplein, it's in the perfect location for a short trip to Amsterdam. We were pleased with the room's cleanliness and amenities. The quiet, peaceful garden out back was a surprise and a beautiful place to spend a little downtime, and is smoker-friendly. We had to extend our stay by one night due to flight delays and were thankful to be offered the same room to keep things easy. Front desk staff were always polite and very helpful. I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend the hotel to a friend. Great stay!

Most annoying, unpleasant, and disrespectful
This was absolutely the most annoying, unpleasant, and disrespectful experiences I've ever had regarding a Hotel! I'm in general super easy going and optimist about businesses and usually try to understand that some mistakes might happen and you shouldn't be too much picky all the times! But this one was mind blowing! You won't believe it! There is a middle age man who called himself the owner of the hotel, he is really impolite, inconsiderate, selfish guy! He behaves to the guests like his employees and as he said himself it's not his priority at all to make sure you enjoy your trip! Trust me and avoid spending your money staying here! I made this mistake that I didn't read Google reviews before booking but after reading I realized my story is not the only example and other people had similar problems with the same guy! So decided to write it here! If you are curious about the details, they told us the first day that the house keeping happens between 12-15 everyday. So one day that we had a packed plan we came back to the Hotel around 16 for a quick shower and refreshing before our next plan. But we saw they didn't came yet and we don't have any towels and stuff. So we called reception and they said they will come soon. It was totally ok and we weren't complaining and were also ok to not having the house keeping for the day at all! But this owner guy came to us and started shouting at us that it's only a 3 star hotel! What have you thought?! You paid nothing! He also said
