  1. From China On November 30, -0001

    the staff made me really unpleased!destroyed me one night.

  2. Gianna From Germany On November 30, -0001

    a mouse in our room! very dirty room and dirty bathroom!

  3. Barbara From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    Very good for the price, friendly stuff, i felt secure, not as dirty as I read is some reviews; but it had a mouse in the room in my second night.

  4. Piotr From Poland On November 30, -0001

    This 'HOTEL' provides free maps, guides and discount vouchers for all attractions. Its good overall, but not so clean. Hairs in a shower, dirty sink & mirror in a room, rat or something other which ate my chocolate bar form the luggage (probably thats why it is forbidden to bring drinks or food to your room).

  5. Alina From Russia On November 30, -0001

    We had a mouse in our room. There're free computers with free Internet in a hall, microwave, kettle in kitchen. Breakfast included. In Queen's day crowd could use our toilet (ground floor) for 2 euro/person. Staff of ready sympathy.

  6. Nkrintra From Thailand On November 30, -0001

    The room is very small. There is no space for the big luggages. The bed is not clean when we firstly check-in. The wall is very thin. I can hear everything outside and can't sleep well.

  7. Elena From Russia On November 30, -0001

    About Hotel Sphinx: Very DIRTY rooms, corridors, bed linen and towels. It STINKS every where. The toilets at the Train station are better (at least cleaner) than here. We expected TWO STARS hotel but the level of service and accommodation does not meet the requirements. There are 48 guests in our group and every one of them is ready to sign this opinion.

  8. Jakub From Poland On November 30, -0001

    I've stayed here with my girlfriend, our beds were kind of noisy and my pillow wasn't very comfortable, but as we needed to stay just for one night the Sphinx Hotel turned out to provide us with at least satisfactory service. And the breakfast was really tasty.

  9. Johan From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    Good hostel with good value for money. Breakfast and linen included =) Clean hostel and the staff is OK but not a real hostelfeeling. A bit far from town. More than 35 mins walk to the centalstation but trams going around the corner.

  10. nigel From USA On November 30, -0001

    Helpful staff, free computer, no curfew, all the museum are within walking distance. worth all the pennies I paid for. Good job sphinx.

  11. hongmei From China On November 30, -0001

    The staff is always helpful and the location is good and convinient to visit the two major musuems.but the cleanliness is a little bit unsatisfactory.

  12. Urban From Slovenia On November 30, -0001

    affordable prices and free wireless

  13. Rok From Slovenia On November 30, -0001

    I would just like to say, that hotel on it's self was for me great! I tried out 3 rooms, all of them were more than expected or as expected. But I did have one quite big problem with booking. When I booked hotel, I got an email, that everything was perfectly fine, I paid 10% with credit card (no limit) and when I got to the hotel, I didn0t have a reservation, becouse credit card was declined?! something must have gone wrong in the connection or something, becouse I paid 2 plane tickets with that card and no problems at all.. Thank god, nice lady in reception offerd me rooms for the same price as I would pay with booking. Othervise as I said.. More than happy with the Sphinx! Thumbs up!

  14. Luciano From Italy On November 30, -0001

    the cleaning of bathrooms is operated rarely and badly. In my bathroom was odour of urine all the thime (!!!). Seems the direction operates overbooking, cause a night 9 people were in a 8 bed room and a girl has'nt found a free bed; so, finally, two guys have slept in a single bed (!!!)

  15. Mohammad From Iran On November 30, -0001

    1. there is no enough key for each guest. so always you have to ask someboday where is the key. 2. the bathroom services wasn't ok.

  16. Julia From Germany On November 30, -0001

    The staff was really nice. The 4 of us got to stay in a private 6 bed room which was great because we had room. Unfortunately the bathroom was full of mold. The breakfast was okay. Free Internet is a plus. And it wasn't in the center which didn't matter to us because we had bikes.

  17. Peter From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    Great location, the breakfast is'nt really breakfast (toast, juice & coffe), would'nt hurt to clean the place once in a while. All in all an Ok for this place.

  18. Scott From USA On November 30, -0001

    The basics. The shower in the 8-bed room I was in was leaking water on the floor causing a mildew-smell, that was not corrected in the 5 days I was there. Nice staff, good location. I might stay here again in the future.

  19. Christopher From England On November 30, -0001

    The hotel was what we expected, nice beds. The fact your not even allowed to smoke on the balcony puts this place down, not nice tumbling down steep stairs feeling the bassline!

  20. João From Portugal On November 30, -0001

    Very good hotel for its price range. Clean, Good Breakfast (Mixed toast, milk, cofee, orange juice). Clean shits, clean bathrooms, u can use the kitchen microwaves and dishes. Near the museumplein and a albert hein chain store! Very nice stay
