I came to this hotel unsure of what to expect, but everything was great friendly and helpful staff quiet and clean and very cheap! It's a bit out of the way of dam square but only a 10 min tram ride which you can get deals on for a few days! Would return of staying in Amsterdam again, ignore bad reviews people always have something to moan about! :)

On arrival the outside was slightly of putting for me and my girlfriends first holiday together but once you go into reception you can see the outside is deceiving as the inside is more updated. Our room had a balcony, tv, nice bathroom and everything was reasonably clean, considering what you pay for. The staff were very helpful with directions and the tram is very close by so getting into more of the cities centre is really not tricky and cheap! Tram 48 hour passes are very reasonable. Would reconmmened this hotel to people who don't want to be fully in the centre but have easy acsses to it. And also to people who enjoy a good complemtry breakfast.

Booked this short break through Easyjet. Hotel was one and a half miles from city centre. Cost 24 euros by taxi to arrive at hotel from the station. We found it took an hour to walk back to the centre. The room at the hotel wasn't big enough to swing a cat in. As a couple you had to wait for one person to move before the other could pass. On a good note the reception staff were very pleasant. Do not expect a smile at breakfast from the staff at the Belfort Hotel. They say the hotel is in Amsterdam but if it is it's a damn long walk to the city!

The general appearance of the outside of the Hotel was a taste of things to come the reception and receptionist was grubby, the room was dirty and a well worn,
duck tape holding the bath together shower head not working floor covering had seen better days.
Scaffolding outside the window and woken up at 7 am by workmen walking up and down outside our window,
Needless to say we moved after one night

This is my 1st ever review but after staying at this hotel I had to write something for others wishing to stay here.
I have stayed in a number of due to work and you can rate these at a number of levels, the picture I saw online were not a reflection of my room. Due to lack of places to book I saw that the Belfort had 3 stars so I thought I would give it a try my mistake, as once I had seen my room I spent the next 3 hours trying to find another hotel but unfortunately everything else was booked unless I wanted to pay another £100 a night.
My room had 3 bunk beds in which OK I expected to find just a single bed.
A broken table which they had tried to screw together but I wouldn't put anything on it just in case if fell apart
A shower curtain which i thought they were trying to see if would grow mushrooms or some other form of fungus.
The shower worked but advice to parents make sure your in shower with kids as I knock the shower tap and ended up scalding my arm.
As for the room:-
The curtain was half hanging off so I had to get on the top bunk to secure it
TV didn't want to touch
Towel we I made the mistake of throwing the first towel on the floor as it was dirty! what a mistake I didn't look at the second towel.
it continued through the week with towels most were not cleans and the final towel on Thursday this was frayed majorly on all sides with wholes in!
cleanliness if I dropped anything which I made sure I didn't apart from a spoon it went into the bin (which I might add was not emptied on a couple of occasions)
the floor was not clean and if you stay don't look under the beds filthy.
Breakfast I didn't know bananas came in black! i abstained from having it.
Friendliness the woman looking after breakfast in between cigarette breaks and coffin was very uninterested in anything you had to say (don't think I ever got a response from)
WiFi its only in the lobby or should I say hallway so enjoy! amongst the people stretch out on the sofa although i did get a weak signal in the bar/breakfast area.
I have not exaggerated this as there is no need.
