Good Location

The location of the hotel was perfect. The room was small and a little loud, but overall it was good. Good place to stay if you just want a place to sleep at night.

Great value and perfect location!

I was very pleased with our stay. I visit NYC a couple of times a year and this was the first time I stayed at the Amsterdam. I would highly recommend it and I would stay there again. The rooms are small - but all NYC rooms are small. They were very clean and they had a very efficient use of the space. The location is great if you want to see shows and be close to Times Square without being in the middle of the chaos of Times Square. Close to the subway as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Loved it!

Don't be afraid to use the subway system. It's very easy to use and people are helpful in directing you if you have questions.

Amsterdam Court in NYC

Booked this hotel needing a room in the heart of the sights and action, could not have booked a better placed hotel. Right next to Broadway for the shows. Compared to other hotels in tne same area price was a killer deal. Let's face it you don't go to NYC to stay in your room so the fact that it's a small room didn't bother me at all. It was clean and comfortable, room service everyday I was there. I had read about hot water issues, it was slow on coming but piping hot once there...great pressure made for long showers after walking the city all day. I stayed on tne 7th floor so street noise was not that bad but again it's NYC...the street buzz is part of the deal. I would get up and open the window..take in the sounds and smells...great! Free coffee in the lobby all day worked well for me but there's a dunkins two doors down as well. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful , always happy to give advice. There is also 24hr parking next door so to be sure and ask reception for a hotel discount. I feel that I got a bargin with this hotel and I,ll be back.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

If you go to a live comedy show DO NOT buy tickets from vendors on the street....go direct to the venue and buy with confidence.

New York base

First impressions of the hotel were a classy entrance but a very disappointing room. The room was very small with no view, no tea making facilities and old, shabby furniture. However, the room was clean, with a comfortable bed and Time Square is just round the corner so it was ideal as a base to explore the city and then sleep. One problem was plug sockets: there were no free sockets so we had to unplug bedside lamps to charge phones. Wifi was $10 per day per item. But an ideal hotel for sightseeing.

One must suffer for their passion.

I come to NYC once or twice a year to catch up on theater. From California, it tends to be an expensive habit, as ticket prices are crazy high and hotel rooms fluxuate all over the place. I got a really good rate using an on-line coupon, so I will keep that in mind while reviewing this hotel. Room 201 was painfully small; no chair, no drawers, no desk, no lamps, no closet. Just one creaky double bed. Everything was worn down, dented, thread-bare, etc. I had lowered my expectations in advance, so I got through it. Somehow, this hotel has a friendly and professional staff far surpassing personnel I have encountered in nearby hotels at 3 times the price. I travel solo. Two persons in this room would really test a relationship.

Nickel and Dimes You on Everything

The location is nearly unbeatable. However, the room smelled strange and the shower temperature vacillated between scalding and freezing. Also, they offer a mediocre continental breakfast, which would be fine if it were free. It was $10.95 + tax. Also, wifi was $10.90 for a 24hr period and there was not even a basic coffeemaker in the room. Because of the comfortable bed, friendly staff and great location, I give it 2 stars.

Old and shows all the wrinkles

I had three different rooms. The first can only be described as a broom closet, and to even attempt to place a person in that room was a disgrace. I have to admit that after two other room changes, I was in a room that at least met two stars...

Never again

If I had not pre-paid, I would not even have checked in. While I waited, exhausted, in the lobby for well over an hour for my room, at least 6 other people came to the desk to complain, and not one got help (2 left to find other hotel). No coffee, no wi-fi (no matter what they say), no closet in room, no place to hang my clothes, no luggage stand so the only chair in the room was my closet/dresser. Man at the desk behaved as though he wanted everyone to just go away. There are many nice places to stay in NYC: go there!
