Quentin Golden Bear Hotel Amsterdam
Founded in 1948, the hotel is located in two of the city's characteristic monumental buildings that date from 1737. Quentin Golden Bear Hotel was once a part of Amsterdam’s vibrant gay scene. Since being taken over by the Quentin hotel group, the Golden Bear is more suited to backpackers and budget tourists, but is still welcoming to the LGBT community.
As with all Leidseplein hotels, to reach The Quentin Golden Bear Hotel from Centraal Station get on trams 1, 2 or 5. Get off at Keizersgracht and walk along the tram tracks for a short distance. On your right will be Kerkstraat with the Polish tourism offices and the distinctive sign of Dolphin's coffeeshop. The Quentin Golden Bear Hotel is just past Dolphin's on the right hand side, easily visible by the rainbow flag suspended outside.

As The Quentin Golden Bear Hotel does not have 24 hour reception, the front desk is closed between midnight and 08:00. Guests are provided with a front door key instead, so 24 hour access to the hotel is still possible; nobody likes a curfew in Amsterdam. While reception is open, refreshments can be bought here and the staff are usually happy to offer what advice they can on how to make the most of your trip to Amsterdam. Wireless internet is also available throughout the hotel for those with laptops.
