Hotel is in a very good location close to museums and tram. Very clean. Breakfast is correct no more. Our room was tiny but very clean and enough for what we excepted and needed. Biggest drawback : Sound isolation is poor but the street is very quiet so we just hear neighborhood.

We stayed in a triple room with our teenage son and baby. My mother stayed in a single room which was about the same size and had better facilities (a safe, a plug for the sink, a toilet seat that didn't fall on you at the first opportunity). The en suite was very small and placed in a very strange way in the room which made it into a bit of a corridor. The hotel is in a great location but it isn't really a boutique hotel. Travellers with mobility problems should be aware that there is a steep flight of stairs into the hotel and that some of the rooms are only accessible by more steep windy stairs including the breakfast room. Great for the odd night but not for a longer stay.

Nice Hotel, Rooms seem to be renovatet a short time ago, the rest of the Hotel (floors, stairs, elevator) are not renovatet, so the first impression is not so good, but the rooms are very nice, clean and cosy. The room was small, but that did not bother us, we were out all day anyway. Breakfast is ok, but it is only inside and there are very nice restaurants in the area, where we could sit outside, so we did only eat there once. The Hotel is very near to the Leidseplein, were all the restaurants, bars etc. are. To the Tramway station it is onli 3 Minutes by foot...

The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. Any time we had questions, the front desk was happy to show us what we wanted to know on the map and instruct us on how to use public transportation. We were in the museum district next to great shopping, the Hard Rock Cafe and a number of other great spots. Be prepared to climb spiral staircase or wait for the elevator. The morning breakfast was tasty but since I'm not a big breakfast eater that wasn't an important point for me. My husband on the other hand was quite satisfied by the meal. Our room was quite small however, it's Europe so I didn't expect anything large but my husband did for some reason. I'm surprised given the amount of European traveling he has done but after I calmed him down and reminded him that we were not there for the room but for the city, he settled down. lol Overall it was a pleasant stay. We would definitely recommend Hotel Acro to others and return again ourselves.

I thought the hotel room was beautiful!! It was probably very cheap, though, because most of the hotel seemed to be under construction (the first two floors, not including the reception floor or the floor where we stayed--all that was decked out all nicely). I hope they are still under construction because I'd like to stay there again and the prices will probably rise since the hotel is quite nice. And the free breakfast was AAAMAAZZINGGGG.

La descrizione del sito rispecchia perfettamente la realtà. L'albergo è situato in una zona molto tranquilla nonostante sia un po' fuori dal centro storico della città. Il centro si raggiunge molto facilmente e volecemente con i tram 2 e 5 che passano proprio vicino l'albergo. L'albergo è piuttosto pulito e silenzioso, ma le camere(una doppia matrimoniale) son piccole, una volta aperta la valigia non si circola più. Lo staff è quasi inesistente, la colazione è buona e abbondante. Il rapporto qualità/prezzo è buono.

We visited Amsterdam for 5 days and stayed at Hotel Accro. We had a bit of trouble finding the hotel as the directions on the website were misleading. Anyways we finally found the hotel and checked in. The room was typically Dutch as it was very small and very cosy. The bathroom was tiny and the sink was ridiculously smallbut clean. We didn't like the breakfast room as it reminded us too much of a high school lunch room. The location was fine at it is in the museum district just a stone's throw away from the major museums and also close to Vondelpark and Leidseplein. The staff were very friendly and very ready with advice on just about everything. Overall, the stay at the hotel was fine as we only slept and ate breakfast there - too much to see and do in Amsterdam to spend time cooped up in the hotel.

The Hotel Acro has very small rooms, but it's common in Amsterdam. On the other side, the rooms are very clean and with a closed shower (not so common in Amsterdam). The breakfast is good, the reception very kind and the location is very very central: only 2 minute by walk to reach the Rijksmuseum and tram stop, only one tram stop (or 20 min by walk) to Leidsplein.

First time in Amsterdam. Very good impression on the hotel. Very small rooms, but as single ones, good enough. Tough stairs to get to the upper floor, but typical in Amsterdam, plus a lift available. Perfect situation in the city in the museums area. Still in a quite street. Excellent welcome from the personal. Pleasant breakfast with choice. Would highly recommend this hotel at least for people of our age or under.

The location of the hotel in the Museum district is perfect! Leidseplein is in easy walking distance, walking to the city centre is possible (takes some time), but a tram station is also just around the corner. +++ The staff is friendly, the room was small, but very clean. Breakfast is OK, only the breakfast room is small and can get quite crowded, which is a little bit annoying. +++ Overall, the hotel offers great value for the price. I can perfectly recommend it, especially for people travelling on a budget. +++ I would also recommend to go swimming in Zuiderbad, which is close nearby: It is a very nice old pool with long opening hours, and they have whirlpools, which are great for relaxing after a stressful day of walking around in the city ;-)

My parents, my brother and I, we all met in Amsterdam for a nice weekend visiting the museums. This hotel has excellent quality for the price, friendly and competent staff and an exceptionally good breakfast. It's right next to the most important museums and not far from all the other main sights. Only complain was maybe that the streets were a bit noisy and the sound proofing isn't great, but nothing that prevented us from sleeping. All in all we REALLY recommend it.

The venere system does not distinguish between double/one bed and double/twin beds. We reserved a 'double' but we wanted twin beds. The only available rooms were a single 'two-person' bed. Hotel and Venere need to have been shared definitions. The room was very small (even given the normal standards in NL) and I think overpriced. Our room was over the bar and it was noisy until about 1 am. The bathroom was nice - the shower worked well. Breakfast was standard. The location is very nice - a quiet neighborhood near Rijksmuseum/Vondel park.

I read both positive and negative comments about this hotel but my experience was definitely positive. I really think the location is incredible..its surrounded by a very large park and a short walk to the most important museums in Amsterdam. I rented a bike from the hotel for a modest price. The walls are thin as suggested in some reviews but I don't think the type of clientele they get here are likely to be a problem...they weren't for me. The staff were efficient (not overly friendly but that might be a local thing). The rooms were more than large enough for me but might be considered small by North American standards. I have already recommended the hotel to relatives.

Posizione tranquilla e silenziosa proprio dietro al museo Van Gogh e a 5 minuti da Leidsplein, 3 minuti da McBike che affitta bici e a 50 metri dalla fermata del tram che in 7-8 minuti arriva a piazza Dam. Stanza (410) piccola (quella con due letti è meglio di quella con letto matrimoniale), ma molto pulita, a terra c'è il legno. Bagno con box doccia chiuso (no tenda), pressione dell'acqua ottima anche all'ultimo piano. Colazione molto ricca (vari tipi di pane da tostare, marmellate, cioccolata, succhi di frutta, bevande calde, salumi e formaggio, uova alla coque..) insomma c'è tutto in abbondanza. C'è l'ascensore, cosa non trascurabile. Unico neo: al quarto piano c'è il locale caldaia quindi fa molto caldo. Occhio ai prezzi della stanza che nel finesettimana raddoppiano. Comunque considerando la media dei due stelle di Amsterdam questo albergo è più che dignitoso!

Acro Hotel is located close to many museums, in a very calm neighbourhood. Tramway is 2 minutes away from the hotel, allowing easy access to the center (although it is only 20-25 min away by foot). Service was ok, staff always helpful, breakfast buffet quite good, free & quite fast wi-fi access. Room is not big, but clean, and I guess you can't find much better for this price. The hotel is close to leidseplein, so 2-3 streets full of restaurants & bars are less than 10-15 minutes away by foot. Will definitely go back to this hotel.

Breakfast was satisfactory, but nothing fancy. The location is perfect. Given the location and the price, I think it was a good choice. If you don't want to spend too much and be close to everything, Hotel Acro is a good choice. Of course you can find a better hotel if you are willing to pay more.

Good location near bus lines, very nice hotel. Very steep stairs to the front lobby. Hard to find the street. Turn at the Rembrandt museum to find the hotel. Located near Rembrandt and Van Gogh museums

Hotel molto onesto, in una posizione molto carina e comoda a pochi passi dalla leiden. Personale veramente gentile e simpatico. Camera pulita anche se un pò strettina, ma d'altronde era una quadrupla. Accesso ai piani superiori comodo solo in ascensore. Molto raccomandato per il rapporto prezzo/qualità. **** Fair value hotel, very good location at walking distance from leiden square. Personnel nice and caring. Clean room maybe a little narrow, but it was a quadruple room. Upstairs floors access comfortable via lift. Overall recommended, high value for money.

For a city hotel this is good value for money, very clean, good breakfast, helpful staff and easily accessible to all the attractions. If we ever came back to Amsterdam we would certainly consider staying here again.

First of all, the hotel staff including every person we had the chance to meet during our 4 days were very friendly, competent and unusuallly helpful. A second advantage of the Acro is its location, a few meters from the museum plein, from the tram station and five minutes from a boat station on the gracht. On the other hand, rooms and furniture were rather shabby and not very clean. The so-called double rooms had two single beds of 80 x 190 cm that could not be put together (making sex an athletic challenge we were not really delighted of). Breakfast was all right, although we had better ones in other hotels of the same price level.

Great location, right by the museums and very close to Vondel Park. Dorm-like set up in the rooms. Small, basic amenities and very uncomfortable mattress. Our TV didn't work and didn't have a remote. Walls in the hotel were paper thin and we heard every noise even the guy upstairs using the toilet! I had a very difficult time sleeping with the mattress and noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't recommend it or stay there again.

Nice location and hotel, however the double room is not so spacious so can't imagine what the single room must be like, also pervasive smell of cigarette smoke in the room which puts off a non-smoker like me.

Acro is a very nice hotel and its staffs are very courtesy and helpful. Hotel is in a quiet museums’ area and commute to central of downtown is very easy, only takes a minute to walk to the trams stop from hotel. The breakfast is great and it’s included, you can also make a tour reservation right in the hotel. The only thing I felt little unconformable is there is no smoking or non-smoking room, but they will make an effort trying to get the smell out of it (it’s hard). I’ll highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again next time when I visit Amsterdam for the price and the service.

We wanted to visit the museums, for this purpose it was the ideal spot: less than threee minutes by foot, tram very close to all directions. The lavatory was quite tiny and absolutely not sound-proof. Do not trust the route description of the hotel: it leads you the wrong way.
