Where only men check in
Created in 1962 by current owner Josef, the Anco remains Amsterdam's longest operating men-only gay hotel. The house dates from 1640, while the interior is Dutch modern designer-functional, with a certain nice gay feel, marked by splashes of white and red. Located literally within crawling distance of the Warmoesstraat and the Zeedijk. A gay Amsterdam instititution.

    Big Mistake. Gruff reception on arrival. Bad omen. Room was so small and narrow and dark, completely ruined my trip (I prepaid for 6 nts) and left the hotel after just two nts. Getting to the room is depressing - up a narrow spiral of stairs reminiscent of being on a boat (so narrow I could hardly bring my suitcase up - no kidding). Leaving hotel, back down stairs. Ooops, forgot umbrella, climb back up the narrow stairs up two flights. Can't stress enough how depressing my room was. Asked for a fridge - no expectation, just asking if it was available - and got a small plug-in box big enough for a single soda can (yes, that's right, - I'm not exaggerating- about 8" tall - you still think I'm exaggerating right?). Bottom line, thought I'd go for some friendly gay atmosphere over another hotel site - but lobby was always deserted. Thought I'd shave some $$ with this choice as well (shared bathroom) but that was a BAD decision (I'm glad I brought sandals). I really don't understand the rave reviews here . . .Just my two cents.
