The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel

Hans Brinker Hotel

The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel has been proudly disappointing travellers for forty years. Boasting levels of comfort comparable to a minimum-security prison, the Hans Brinker also offers some plumbing and an intermittently open canteen serving a wide range of dishes based on runny eggs.

Other Hans Brinker Budget Hotel, Amsterdam services and amenities include:
– A basement bar with limited light and no fresh air.
– A concrete courtyard where you can relax and enjoy whatever sunshine is able to pass the high buildings on either side on the extremely infrequent days when it’s actually sunny.
– An elevator that almost never breaks down between floors.
– A bar serving slightly watered down beer.
– Amusing witticisms and speculations about former guests’ sexual preferences scrawled on most surfaces.
– The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel, Amsterdam Luxury Ambassadorial Suite (featuring the Hans Brinker’s one and only bath-tub).
– Doors that lock.

Testimonials by former guests include:

“What can I say? It was cheap. But not that cheap. I mean, a bus shelter offers the same facilities.”
– Charlotte, Texas.

“What is that smell? I demand to know what that smell is.”
– Lisa, Oklahoma.

“I woke up and had the distinct feeling that someone had been in my room.” 
– Derek, Ohio.

“What a fantastic experience. So cheap! So friendly! No, wait, that was that other place in Belgium.”
– Mr and Mrs Vandenberg, New Mexico.

“The best cheap youth hostel I’ve stayed in since my sentence was suspended.” 
– Michael, New York.

I’ll leave you to visit the Hotel’s website and discover for yourself the further delights of the Hans Brinker Hotel in Amsterdam.

It is worth exploring their website.
