Unusual Hotels – The World’s Worst Hotel?

The Worst Hotel in the World?

The Worst Hotel in the World?

What’s the worst hotel you’ve ever stayed in? Never mind, it couldn’t have been any worse than the Hans Brinker Budget Hostel in Amsterdam, which actually prides itself on being the “world’s worst hotel”.

While most other hotels go out of their way to convince potential clients they have the cleanest rooms, the most comfortable beds and the most incredible views, the Hans Brinker hostel lets everyone know just how awful their accommodations are. Some of their most popular advertising slogans include: ”It can’t get any worse. But we’ll do our best” or “Improve your immune system – stay at Hans Brinker!” Pretty funny stuff and although a lot of people who stayed there confirm it’s pretty much all true, it apparently just adds to the charm of the place. Despite management’s best efforts to warn guests about the rudimentary facilities of their establishment, most of the hotel’s 511 beds in 127 rooms are occupied these days. Of course, the fact that no room costs more than €25 ($32) can be considered an incentive.

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.

According to their web site, 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.

    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few
    simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your

    The Worlds Worst Hotel? | Maizebread’s Blog. I was moved enough to drop a comment 🙂 I do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Is it just me or do some of these remarks come across like coming from
    brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional
    sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have
