8/10 Very good

The coolest hotel in Amsterdam
I've never been someone who wants to remain in my hotel when I travel - but this place is the exception. The room I stayed in (the love shack) was basic but comfortable and had plenty of storage for my bags. The place was a bit noisy but earplugs were provided free of charge. The location is perfect for navigating the city: you can walk to the centre of the city in half an hour. Plenty of public transport options too - or you can rent a bike from the hotel, which is a great idea. There are plenty of great places to eat nearby and the park is beautiful. The staff at the Arcade Hotel are incredibly friendly and helpful, there is a great selection of video games to play (and comics to read!), and the kitchen served some of the best food I ate during my visit to Amsterdam. There is also a very friendly cat who hangs out too :) I would definitely return here - if you've seen the sights of the city and want a chilled out but exciting place to stay, this is the place. Don't miss out!

Terrible stay, tiny rooms, incredibly hot rooms day and night, stains on bed on arrival, filthy stained carpets in stairwell, avoid if possible!

6/10 Good

This is a cool spot. It was a little too mature for a 9 year old and a 5 year old. Lobby was smoky and clientele was older with few families around. Staff was very helpful and accommodating, but the 2 video game consoles in our room didn’t work, which was a bummer because it could not be fixed the day of our stay. Breakfast was awesome for 10 Euro. I’d stay again under different circumstances.
