Located five minutes from both Central Station and Dam Square, the one-star Hotel Internationaal boasts a convenient location on Warmoesstraat, one of the city’s oldest (and loudest!) streets. It’s cheap, it’s clean, and it’s ideal for young visitors looking for a fun time.

Quick read

Pros: Close to Central Station. Bar downstairs. Friendly staff. Free Wi-Fi.

Cons: Noisy street. Very steep stairs. Too basic for some.

Rooms

The Hotel Internationaal isn’t for guests demanding boutique style. Rather, the hotel is geared toward those who need an easy, affordable place to stay.

The hotel offers eight budget rooms with free Wi-Fi, a fan, alarm clock and small TV. Rooms allow smoking, and all come with sets of ear plugs (the good, squishy foam kind). Rooms facing the street have nice views of 16th-century buildings (and will be louder), while rooms in the back are slightly more quiet.

Two double rooms offer private baths, while the six others share facilities. Rooms without private bath are equipped with a sink with soap, a few chairs, water glasses, a locker and basic beds. The decor in these shared rooms is that of a dorm room, with starchy carpet, sea foam green walls and chipped, clunky bed frames. Still, doors operate with keycard locks and the building is safe.

Triples and quads are cramped, but clean, basic, and with no surprises.

Bathrooms

Shared baths are clean and tidy. And hey, they’re not the smallest we’ve seen.

Hotel

As its building dates back to the 1600s, the Hotel Internationaal has a lot of character. Its reception and breakfast area is a pub, and has been so since sailor and whalers made it their regular watering hole a century ago. Its nautical trinkets, frosty square window panes, wooden décor and Chesterfield walls create a personal (and party!) atmosphere for guests and regulars.

Breakfast is offered for €7.50 and is the basic continental offering of breads, spreads and hot drinks.

The hotel offers a luggage storage room downstairs and free Wi-Fi throughout the building. The super-friendly staff are pros at helping visitors plan their Amsterdam experience.

Stairs are steep in many hotels in Amsterdam, and Hotel Internationaal is no exception. Look for handles on the sides and ceilings when tackling these ladders, and try to walk up sideways. We’re not joking.

Guest Reviews in Brief

The combination of location, friendly staff and good rates keeps guests checking into Hotel Internationaal. It’s small, it’s personal, and it’s really perfect for groups out for a weekend bender in the Red Light District.

Noise, noise and more noise will keep older couples away, as will the stairs. But if you’re young, on a budget, and don’t mind earplugs, you’ll love it.

About the Hotel Internationaal 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.
