Find your hotel
Yet within 7 minutes walk of the Sphinx Hotel you find the restaurants and nightlife of Leidseplein. The square developed in the 17-th century as a wagon park for farmers and peasants to leave their carts here before entering the city centre. The name is because of Leidsepoort, which once marked the end of the main road from Amsterdam to Leiden. Nowadays, Leidseplein is a busy tram intersection and centre of night-time transport. Leidseplein is one of Amsterdam's popular centres for nightlife, with theatres, lots of cafes, restaurants, cinemas, the casino, the Lido theatre with live entertainment and music centres Paradiso and Melkweg. Street musicians, jugglers, fire-eaters and other performers make the square a lively place until the early hours, especially on warm summer evenings, when you can get there also a henna tattoo.

Der Gastgeber war freundlich und nett.
Das Hotel ist sehr hellhörig und nicht besonders sauber. Mit wenigen Mitteln kann man hier mehr draus machen. Bsp.: Hätte man in unserem Zimmer ein Bett entfernt und nur als Einzelzimmer angeboten, hätte es eine passendere Größe gehabt.

Great location, it was perfect for what we intended for our stay.
The room was a bit small and i thought we would get 3 seperate beds, from what I could see in the picture when I booked. It wasn't a major deal, but still. The one at the reception wasn't that good at english and hard to understand.

Breakfast was sufficient.
We had a room on the attic which was very cramped due to the sloped roof and hot as there is no fan. An air-conditioning unit was in the hallway which is shared with others so of no use. Shower points to the toilet and is under the sloped roof so no good for tall people.

Gave me exactly what I needed for my bussiness stay and no extras. Low price compared to other Amsterdam center hotels.
No elevator and steep stairs. Walls in room could use some new paint. Had to wake morning portier last morning to get breakfast ( 15 minutes late ).

Easy to come and go as you like
Since we sort of knew what we were booking from earlier reviews etc, we didn’t expect it to be super fancy, but the room should have some air condition because we both had problem to breath and got allergic.
