The 2-star Sphinx Hotel is a smart choice for the budget traveler.

With fewer than 20 rooms here, you'll avoid big hotel crowds. Make your trip especially memorable, visit Heineken Experience, Albert Cuyp Market and Paradiso. You can walk to Pijp area, Sarphati Park and Museumplein Amsterdam from here. Don't miss Museum Van Loon and Rijksmuseum, both are near this property. If you like amusement parks Artis Zoo is a must-do.

At Sphinx Hotel you can enjoy a free breakfast every morning. Many find the offering of a luggage storage here especially attractive. The building offers 17 rooms to choose from. Another amenity here is public parking.

If you need online access, you'll appreciate Sphinx Hotel's wireless high-speed Internet access (complimentary). A DVD/VCR player can be found in the rooms. A toilet is standard in room bathrooms.

 "Old and keep up well"
Facility could just some upkeep. Worker was friendly and tried to do a good job.but shower heads were worn out, faucits would not turn on or off easily, Wifi in rooms were weak or not at all, carpets were old and wornout.

 "Amsterdam Hotel"
I thought the hotel was appalling, badly located, the customer service was horrendous, and I wouldn't let anyone stay there. The rooms were okay, but there was plenty of hidden charges unaware to myself and they talked to us like absolute idiots.

This is the worse hotel i have had ever been in Europe and easy to book should take it out of the website. Bad bed, awfull breakfast.The only good thing: location (just 5 minutes to downtown by bus).

This was a great Spot for us to stay in.Me and my Friend booked a double room...We were informed that the tv doesnt work and there is some constructions going on around this building , so she upgraded our room..We were on the Top floor (the stairs are so typical dutch,I just never get used to it)where we had a beautiful View over amsterdam...We had great access to all the Hot spots in Amsterdam.Of course by Tram..The staff was absolutely nice and i would recomend this hotel again...Thanks

 "not a hotel"
I wouldn't call this a hotel. For the price we payed, we didn't expect great luxury but we also handn't expected to spend the night in a youth-hostel. The carpet and the walls were filthy, the tap in our room leaked and when I asked some water at breakfast, I had to take it from the tap in the kitchen. On the wall near our table fot breakfast was a sign that said:" please clean up your mess after eating." The staff didn't speak Dutch and scarcely understood the Dutch language. Sphinx Hotel: once but never again!

 "A place to sleep if you really have no money."
There is no service. At best, I could talk to the presence of unutile staff.The room overlooks a busy street where the tram passes.The location of the hotel is good unlike utilities, sanitary and breakfast shivers along the spine.Finally, only the price was good but it was worth not at all the rest of the service

 "this place needs new beds carpets paint and plaster to hide holes in the wall and to tidy electrics"
what a great location and all this place needs is an update. i slept good in a single room . i was not allowed to view the dorm i booked and for a few euro more i was given a single room. after recovering from the anger of finding a flea on my bed and killing it after it bit me only to find it loaded with my fresh blood ; I slept on the other bed in the room in my clothes with my raincoat on top of me and the duvet under me. the beds should have been chucked about 20 years ago as they were old and frayed and awful but i slept in the back of the building so it was quiet and i was tired. i woke at 6am feeling refreshed and felt like i was a student again in a youth hostel . i was able to laugh it off and almost ready to apply for a job asking them if they needed help assessing and writing job sheets for the workers as i am an interior designer by trade. As for the breakfast it was a joke. bread ,sliced cheese,cheap sliced ham and some sort of tange styled juice drink but no water.i have traveled to amsterdam many times and enjoyed some lovely hotels but this was a sad hotel in need of major tlc . i would not go back there and really object to easy to book recommending it as it was not what a hotel needs to be
