The family-run Hotel The Crown is a one-star, no-frills establishment with 15 quiet, affordable rooms situated above a pub in the vivacious Red Light district.
Rooms at the Hotel The Crown are as basic as those in a good hostel. Space is tight, furnishings are utilitarian and the clinical white walls are adorned with abstract art prints. Rooms range from singles to six-bedded. They are stark, equipped with a safe and nothing more. Some rooms offer canal views (ask ahead).
A few rooms have private bathrooms but others share the hallway facilities. All bathrooms are cramped but clean, and since there are only a few rooms per floor bathroom sharing shouldn’t be a big problem.
If you're coming to Amsterdam to party, this is a great location. You’ll never need to venture far beyond the Crown’s bustling corner. In fact, you really just have to head down the steep stairs (note that the hotel does not have an elevator) to the pool table-equipped bar. However, if your idea of Amsterdam conjures up more Rembrandts than Red Lights, we recommend you move on.
Two of the three floors have Internet access (ask ahead).

About the Hotel The Crown neighborhood
Amsterdam's (in)famous Red Light District lies within the "Old Center," a short walk from Centraal Station. True, the area is home to those notorious red windows, live sex shows and marijuana-peddling coffee shops. But well-policed, yet happy-go-lucky 'hood is hardly a dangerous free-for all—and it's home to some cool shops and many affordable hotels.
