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.

Myself and some friends stayed here very recently 26th-29th jan 15 and after reading many reviews I didn't hold up much hope for our stay so expected the worst but
surprisingly this hotel although a little out of the way was clean, cleaned our rooms and fresh towels everyday staff were polite friendly and helpful with what was asked.
Athough there is scaffolding up on the rear of the building but didn't effect us and places need to get work done to upgrade them. Bathrooms probably need an upgrade and shower hose was leaking but in time I'm sure they'll get round to doing it.
All in all we had a fantastic time in the beautiful city of Amsterdam and enjoyed our stay at the Belfort hotel, would I stay there again? Yes I would

This was booked through a company and so i didn't think anything of it! The Hotel is very dated and i would call it a Hostel rather than hotel. The room was very basic but clean. It was extremely hot as we appeared to have a pipe radiating heat, the window could be opened but it was more like a door which led onto a balcony shared with others. Also there was scaffolding up and we had workman shouting around 7am!! Breakfast was continental, everything about the breakfast was cheap. It didn't differ it was exactly the same everyday! Wifi is a hit or miss and can only be used in the lobby. It is a no smoking hotel however smoking right outside the door is disgusting, especially for none smokers and everyday we had to walk through a cloud of smoke. Don't sit by the entrance to the dining room for breakfast as smokers in and out and it stinks! I wouldn't stay here again if I'm honest.

I stayed here last week with a couple of friends. We found a good deal on flights & accomodation with Easy Jet Holidays so booked to stay at the Belfort. From researching we knew the hotel was a bit out of the way but the location wasn't bad. It was a 10 min airport ride away and the tram stop was round the corner taking you into Dam Square. This was only 10-15 min journey and there are GVB passes that are cheap that give you unlimited access on trams, buses & metro. The hotel itself was very basic. We were served by a Korean woman who was helpful but not that friendly. You could rent bikes, get tickets to attractions and a tram pass from the hotel though. The room was very small and had 3 single beds in which were fairly comfy. There was a few stains on the walls and a little dirt. There was a large window you could climb out onto an old balcony which had a set of drawers on. The maids came everyday. We were annoyed one morning because we were woken up at 8am by drilling and builders putting up scaffolding outside our room!! We had not been told about this by the hotel!! No lift so had to walk up stairs. Breakfast was very basic, bread, crossiants, cheese, ham, juices and tea which wasn't particularly nice. Outside the hotel there was broken decking and stacked up chairs everywhere. We had a flat screen TV on our wall but could not seem to work it and there was only 1 plug with 2 sockets. There was a hairdryer next to the sink aswell which was quite dangerous. Wifi worked in reception but not in our room. Overall we got what we paid for and if you are looking for a cheap hotel that you only need to sleep and shower in this one would be ok, i would not reccommend it and would probably give it 2 stars not 3 but it wasn't terrible.

In Surinamplein, a real crappy Hotel,
At arrival, you can see the terrace in ruin with huge holes and boards everywhere, the hotel is sordid, dirty cuddly toys in the sofa at the reception.
Then the rooms, ducktape in the shower, no light bulb in the lamps, four single beds when you ask for only a twin, discusting floor, hairs in the bathroom....
Next to noisy avenues...great night
.....please don't go there !
