 "Great place away from city centre"
We enjoyed our stay at Flipper. The room was pretty small, but it had it's own shower and bathroom and was nice and clean. The buffet breakfast (for extra charge) was good value, but it's better to show up early to make sure you get the best selection of food. The only issue we had is finding the place once we got off the tram as there was only one sign on the main road which did not explain clearly how to get to the actual hotel, however a friendly man in a local coffee shop helped us find our way :)

 "Flipper Hotel Review"
The hotel is close to Amstel station which is really great. The room was quite nice and fit for one person. There was a sink in the room which I really appreciated it. Shared bathroom is clean. The personnel are really warm and nice and helpful. My only problem with the stay was that the walls were too thin. From my room anyway, I could hear the neighbours talking, the other guests speaking in their rooms. Maybe I have my sleep is too light, but if I could hear less during my stay, I wouldn't have woken up too many time during the night, and for sure I would have been very happy.

 "Our stay in the Flipper Hotel.."
The. Was an initial complication. With our booking, as the website confirmed there was breakfast included, however upon arrival, the receptionist told us that it wasn't... When I explained it was included she said that they hadn't updated the website and didn't offer any resolution.. Only after stating I was not happy, she then gave us a room with an extra bed.. Tis was of no help apart from the fact the room was slightly bigger. Also parking was very expensive outside...

The Hotel Flipper was as exspected from a budget hotel not the best facilitys or rooms but had very helpfull and friendly staff along with considarate guests enjoyed my stay and really enjoyed amsterdam. If you dont mind a fair walk to town, using the tram system or hireing bikes for the week i would definately recomend.Jake Bristol UK

 "OK hotel"
Well be careful to read the small print of this hotel, on arrival they charged us an extra 5% as tourist tax, which wasn't very clear when booking! Also we were told we would have a double bed and two singles but got given 4 singles, two of which were just pushed together, which we actually preferred as friends staying, but if you're a couple it's wouldn't be ideal!They also tried to charge us for breakfast even though we had already specifically said we didn't want breakfast! (As we probably wouldn't be awake before 11am!) The weekend we got a lovely sleep, but on Monday morning we were woken by the building site next door at 8am, which actually the night before a few loud explosions had happened! Which we were not best pleased about but I guess it woke us up early so we could actually do touristy things during the day. This is temporary though so as long as your stay isn't within the next couple of months I'm sure it'll be fine as the hotel itself was pretty sound proof to other guests!The beds were nicer than expecting, but a very small width. The room is cosy (kinda cramped). The bathroom was very clean and had a good shower. A kettle, tea and coffee was also provided. It is really close to the tram line, less than 5 min walk, the trams are really regular and then it goes straight into town, really simple to navigate! However we could never find the night bus back from the city centre to our bus stop. If we had spent more time investigating during the day we might have though. A taxi from just off Dam Square will cost roughly 15euro so not that bad! Great for a cheap stay!p.s. Really nice takeaway at the top of the street near the tram, Indian man speaks little English but really friendly and makes amazing pizza that are reasonably priced! - the menu has curries etc too but we didn't try them.

Cons: The six square meter twin room with shared toilet and shower in the corridor was an absolute rip-off for 220 eur a night.
