Review by chad from Jamaica
Didn`t like this place one bit
As we arrived in the hotel i was nearly knocked out with the smell of silicone and paint then we got to the rooms which left a lot to be desired not like the photos on the internet and the walls were paper thin just didn`t get a good feel about the place lads working knocking and banging at 9 in the morning it`s still not finished properly. The shower door was hanging off it wouldn`t be a place i stay again

hotel fantasia is under new ownership since the last review here was written. very hospitable new ownership. (didn't stay here previously so can't compare) ...the hotel is located on nieuwe keizergracht around the corner from the magera bridge ,and a short walk from the waterlooplein market area.its a fairly quiet neighborhood,with hotels synopsis ,and adolesce on the same block. rooms are on four floors accessible by stairs. we took advantage of a mid-week arrangement staying in one of the larger two person rooms located on 4th floor for 77 euro a night for four nights. room was equipped with wc / shower and was roomy and comfortable . there is a garden area behind the hotel where guests can relax and interact with each other and staff. there is an atmosphere of what in the usa would be called 'counterculture' but in amsterdam is just considered doing what one is comfortable with. hence some of the plant life in the garden. breakfast was included,served in a 1st floor breakfast room,and was typical dutch fare ,boiled eggs,cheese ,various breads/rolls...the staff are a colorful bunch , and we were immediately comfortable here. they were helpful and friendly. this is the hotel we will stay in during future trips to amsterdam.

probably the benchmark for 1 star hotels.
my 2 biggest problems with this hotel were that it was too far from the center, and the lack of an elevator. otherwise it really seemed worth the money. i got into alot of fights with the owner adrie(my fault though). breakfast was alright, typical dutch, but too early. room size was ok, but the walls seemed way too thin. not much water pressure but at least we had clean private facilities. overall i'd recomend it. unless you're staying a while (1 week or more) then i'd rent an apartment. i don't stay at hotels anymore.
