Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Walkable locale in Amsterdam's Red Light District; close to Central Station, cafes, and shopping
  • Select rooms have great views of the nearby canal
  • Gray, contemporary bathrooms have walk-in showers with rainfall shower heads; some bathrooms have separate soaking tubs
  • Modern rooms have flat-screen TVs and comfy bedding
  • Minimal lounge area has a "concession stand" with a microwave
  • Guests have free access to 2 communal computers
  • Snacks provided in the lobby throughout the day
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No on-site breakfast area
  • Bathrooms show some mold and mildew
  • Some rooms are so tiny that beds extend from wall to wall
  • Small rooms are reached by steep, narrow stairways

Bottom Line

The 75-room Hotel CC is located in three historical monument buildings in Amsterdam's lively and racy Red Light District, and features attic-like rooms, narrow, steep stairways, and and a trendy lounge with a snack and drink area. There's no breakfast area, as in other nearby hotels, but it's close enough to cafes and other restaurants. Rooms have black-and-white color palettes, and in most, sleek, white work desks, circular black chairs, and cozy white beds; some have great views of the canal. Some are so small, however, that the beds stretch from wall to wall. The bathrooms are stylish and modern, with a cool gray design and walk-in showers (and in certain rooms, separate soaking tubs). There is free Wi-Fi, and guests have free access to communal computers. All in all, it's one of the best deals in the Old Center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Situated in the heart of Amsterdam near the spicy Red Light District, museums, shopping, and dining

Hotel CC is ideally situated in the heart of Amsterdam's city center, near the notorious Red Light District and countless cafes, shops, museums, and other top attractions.

Marked by cobblestone roads, street-level canals and an abundance of coffee shops (which are most often known for something other than coffee), Amsterdam is both a quiet and lively city without the pretention of European metropolises.

In the summer, visitors can enjoy live music at the Openluchttheater, an open-air venue at the Vondelpark, or the Roots Music Festival. The Gay Pride parade also takes place in the summer, and the city's many museums -- including the Van Gogh Museum or the Anne Frank House, where Frank and her family hid from the Nazis during World War 2 -- are popular year-round. Visitors in April can experience Queen's Day, which celebrates the queen's birthday and includes a massive flea market, parties, and outdoor concerts.

Noordermarkt is known for its antiques, and Brouwerij de Prael is a recommended stop for beer enthusiasts. Fun dining spots include the famous sandwich spot Van Dobben, as well as Pancake Bakery, which offers more than 70 types of pancakes and a slew of other breakfast goods.
