The Euphemia was formerly a monastery built at the turn of the century. It’s in close proximity to all the main tourist attractions within the city center, such as the Heineken Brewery, Leidseplein, the nightlife area and the museums. Due to our location on a quiet side street, one is able to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We’re also easily accessible from Central Station.

In the morning we serve a simple a la carte breakfast €.3,- to €.6, served from 8am to 11am. We also have a vending machine for hot and cold drinks.

The lounge is open during reception hours (8am-11pm). Here you can spend your afternoon writing postcards, meeting other travelers, watching TV or using our free Wi-Fi.

We wish you a pleasant stay.

    Nothing too fancy about this place but it was clean, had a hot shower, and was in a good location. Was expensive (50$ per night since I booked last min). But beds were clean, the guy working at night was super helpful and friendly, only had 1 bathroom per floor for showering but I didn't find a problem w that and it seemed to be clean with hot water, and the lounge was very basic. To me it was probably worth 20-30 euro max per night, taking into account the higher cost of Amsterdam.
