"Another budget Amsterdam hotel" Sara's Boutique Hotel Tip by danmcf

Sara's Boutique Hotel, Amsterdam: 223 reviews and 1 photos

  Hotel Crystal
by danmcf

If you're young there's plenty of youth hostels to choose from. I did this in 1981, stayed near the Vondelpark - I think this Hostel is still in operation.
In 2000 we stayed in the Crystal Hotel, 2 star near Leidesplein and the Museums. Arrived in Amsterdam without a hotel on a beautiful February Saturday. For this far from 'in season', the place was remarkably crowded. Waited at least 3/4 hr at VVV to find a room.
It cost us about 180nlg a night.

Address: 2e Helmerstraat #6
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Just a block from where tram #2 crosses the Singelgracht canal when departing the Leidesplein (going away from Centraal Station).
Phone: 00 31-(0)20-6180521
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
