Smoking friendly Hotels\Hostels Centrum area

Post by ForDarkseid » Fri 1st Sep 2017 04:21 pm

Hi

This is my first post, I am returning to the Dam in December for my 1st visit in 11 years and taking the GF

Im sure this has been asked multiple times and I am going through old topics, main reason im asking is I hear alot of places now dont allow smoking that maybe used to.

Basically looking for recommended places that have a Double\Twin room\ private toilet shower and no issue with toking in the room.

Preferred area would be around the Centrum\ Damrak with a Budget of around £250-£300s for 3 nights.

Tried the Green house effect but its booked as always,

Any thoughts on The Old Quarter, Budget Hotel Ben, Tulip Inn?

Thanks and apologises if this has been asked over and over

Surely the must still be some hovels that allow you to toke in your room with the windows open?

I'd only recommend a hovel if your girlfriend is as keen a smoker as you seem to be and wants to blaze from dawn to dusk. Otherwise, it's a false economy. Voyagers will probably be booked, but keep an eye out for cancellations, as it's eminently suitable. Also consider that places like Hotel Abba on Overtoom or Atlantis on Ceintuurbaan are technically not in the centre, but the Dam isn't like Paris or London. It's just a pleasant walk of 20 minutes or so away, or a tram if you're really lazy. Both offically allow smoking, and aren't shitholes, although the standard of cleanliness at the Abba wasn't great the last time I stayed there a couple of years back. Don't know if that was a trend or a blip, as I haven't been back since.

Indeed. But in the Dam they range from those that don't really care as long as you're discreet to the ones with locked windows and big signs making it clear that they'd just love to catch you, fine you a few hundred euros and turf you out in the middle of the night. And even with the former, there's always that nagging feeling that someone will say something or catch a whiff, and even if you get off with a stern lecture, it'd be embarrassing. I've done it often enough, and never been caught, but I prefer honesty.

Truth is, in Amsterdam, i never felt much urge to smoke inside the hotel where there are plenty of canals or wherever where you can just enjoy your smoke not being surrounded with walls:D

Old Quarter and Tulip Inn are strictly non smoking. No idea on Ben (looks a shit hole btw for the money).

Tulip Inn/Ben are next door to Babylon CS if thats any consolation.

Pretty hard pressed to find a half decent place that allows smoking in the rooms these days.

Perhaps try an Airbnb for an apartment with a terrace/balcony. Though Airbnb seems very expensive in Amsterdam when i've looked.

Unfortunately there is a European law that prevents hotels from allowing customers to smoke inside, there is a standard 300 euro fine for people who get caught.

Personally, before I moved to Amsterdam, I stayed in all types of hotels, the more expensive the less they check on you or seem to mind smoking at the window, on the budget front; "Tulipp Inn" near the RLD was a good one, had big double bay windows for a low price if you catch my drift; - hope this helps!
