“Just as the reviews promised”
Reviewed 23 June 2008

This hotel was chosen after much research because of the positive reviews and we were not disappointed. I have a girl and boy, ages 11 and 14, and had asked if there was any way we could be accommodated. We were given a huge room (room 1) in the basement with a double bed and 2 single beds - how perfect! The room and bathroom were clean (looked like new wood laminate flooring for the room) and they provided nice white fluffy towels.

There were cellar stairs from our room up to the peaceful backyard. Just outside our room in the hall were 2 computers available to any guests, so we could check e-mail while away from home, or find the weather in our next vacation stop. Very nice added convenience.

I loved that the Earl's Court Underground station was 5 minutes away, and Judi had given good directions in advance from the airport.

Since we only had 1 1/2 days in London, and one would be on the sightseeing tours, we asked Judi for suggestions for our half day, and she had plenty of options. We ended up going to Windsor castle (30 minutes by tube, then train) and it was great. But don't start too late because it takes a while to see it. She also gave a suggestion for an Indian restaurant just near the hotel which was very tasty.

In looking at the map, I had been concerned that the Earl's Court station was a bit far from the city center, but once we were on the tube, it didn't seem to be far at all.

Breakfast had toast, croissant, cereal, juice, coffee, etc. with an extra fee for cooked food I think. We were fine with the bread and cereal.
Overall it was a lovely experience, and I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was a very good deal. The location is GREAT. It is very close to the tube, Earls Court, and a couple good restaurants. They also serve a decent free breakfast and have free internet. The room was spacious, or at least our triple was. We had a nice balcony, but it would not open properly.

Now to the bad parts: we were constantly annoyed by the fact that there was a heavy smoke smell seeping into our room. I don't know where it was coming from considering the entire floor was a "non smoking floor." It was very bad. Not coming from the balcony either. Also, most of the employees did not speak hardly any English. This is what London is turning into, but whatever. Also, the bathrooms were nice, but the showers were a disaster. The stand-up shower was TINY and the fabric shower doesn't hold in the water at all.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here in comparison to other places I have stayed at in London. This place was nice.

btw, this is NOT a handicap accessible hotel.

Book online, directly from the hotel.

AMSTERDAM HOTEL LONDON

Amsterdam Hotel was a nice surprise. It was better than we expected.

The staff deserves the best words. Thanks a lot to Judy and the punctual Alan for all their help. No matter how busy they were, they always had time to give us directions, arrange bookings and attend our questions. Months before going I exchanged some mails with the staff and they were extremely polite and friendly.

The bedroom was spacious and very cozy, with nice decoration and light color furniture. Two magazines were on the table for us. The beds are very comfortable and it has a view to a beautiful courtyard. There are facilities to prepare hot beverages.
There’s a little TV set, where I would have liked to see a Spanish channel. It also has a heater.
The only minus was the little wardrobe. We had plenty of baggage because we were on a 40 days trip, but it’s enough for tourists with less baggage.
Everything is spotless and very silent in the night.

The bathroom has been refurbished and there’s plenty of space for toiletries. The shower has a good flush of water.
The hair dryer is in the room, good idea to save time.

Don’t worry about the adaptor because it’s provided in the reception.

The lift is the tiniest I’ve seen in my life, but it gave a touch of personality to the hotel.

There’s a nice business center on the ground floor and both computers can be used freely. It was great!

The iron can be used by the guests, though I never used it. There´s so many things to do in London instead!

The breakfast continental is good, but once we had to wait for a table.

The location is excellent, just a few steps from the tube station. There is everything you need in the neighborhood: laundry, restaurants, supermarkets, etc. In one of them, open till midnight, almost next to the tube, they drop the prices of sandwiches, fruits and other fresh products in the evening.
Definitely if I return to London, this will be my only option.

  • Liked — Confort, excellent staff, free business center and location.
  • Disliked — Tiny wardrobe. No Spanish channel.

Finding a nice clean quiet London hotel for under 100 pounds per night for two, including continental breakfast was a challenge. Amsterdam was tops. Quiet, 120 yeards from the Earls Court tube stop, and very nice people. Highly recommended.

Much as expected from the reviews I'd read. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Contrary to what the website said no full English breakfast was available just eggs on toast for another £2. Wake up call was on time. I was next to the lift which was a bit noisy. Very clean. Good location very close to tube station.

After a long and careful reading of the reviews made on this hotel on TripAdvisor, my husband and I decided to book 4 nights at the Amsterdam in April 2008, and it turned out to be exactly as described on Trip Advisor :)
FYI, we had a regular room, not a suite. We were in London for leisure purposes, to go out and visit the city, not to stay indoors lounging in the hotel room.
I hesitated with the Shaftesbury Premier London Paddington, and I asked the Shaftesbury a few questions by email. They never answered back. Ever. So I went for the Amsterdam, whose staff always answered my emails promptly and politely in a timely manner.
The Amsterdam is an old building, full of charm (the elevator is quite an experience!). The key system is old-school : they give you a real key that you drop off at the reception when you leave for the day and ask for when you return to the hotel (the desk is open 24/24). The staff is very pleasant , polite and helpful, both at the desk and dowstairs in the breakfast area.
The regular breakfast (buffet-style) consisted of : fruit juices, water, tea, coffee, chocolate, milk, toasts (2 kinds), jams, butter, fruit salads, croissants and pains au chocolat (pas tout frais de la boulangerie mais raisonnables pour un petit-déj.), some Danish if I remember well, cereals (4 kinds), yogurts (2 kinds), apples, bananas, oranges. You can order a warm "English" breakfast for a surcharge, but we didn't try that. The regular breakfast was more than enough.
The internet nook, dowstairs, has 2 free-access computers with a printer. Slow connection but enough for emailing and checking the weather reports !
The premisses are kept very clean by the staff. Being allergic to smoke, I was a little worried about the "staff smoking" that other reviewers complained about, but we never had a problem.
They lend adapters for your electronic devices, with a deposit.
They also lend umbrellas, that you just pick up in the lobby on your way out. No deposit asked.
Some complained about the noise - a fairly common nuisance in hotels - but we were never bothered by that. I am extremely sensitive to the noise, so that would have made my stay miserable. It is all carpeted in the common areas, that helps. Maybe we were lucky to have mindful neighbors. The hotel is on a quiet street, no noise disturbance on that part either.
The room was nice, modern, very clean, small (by American standards), of course, as we had expected. It is London ! Just look at the pictures posted by the travelers, small but functional. We had one big suitcase and two small suitcases, plus winter coats. There is enough space to put that away, in the pantry or on top of it.. There was a kettle with tea and coffee, sugar (regular, sweetener) and milk or cream. Our room had a balcony, that unfortunately we could not enjoy due to the bad weather. One of the room keys is to lock the balcony door. The curtains provide a decent darkness for your sleep.
The courtesy wake-up calls are reliable and on time.
The bed was not bad, it was a double size, which can be a little small for American visitors but normal for European standards (un 140, je dirais).
The bathroom, small but by no means tiny. Very modern, recently remodeled, enough towels, and the toiletries (shampoo/soap/shower gel, hand soap) and not on the cheap side. The pressure is good, the water temperature is steady. One problem : the shower curtain. The shower is small, this is true. I am thin but I still managed to flood the floor ! The curtain lets the water drop outside the shower bottom. It's okay, we just used a towel as a sponge and the room was cleaned every morning.
The Amsterdam is located nextdoor to the Underground station, 2 minutes "door-to-door", very convenient. We never heard any train noise. There are a lot of restaurants in the area, as well as little supermarkets and a post-office.
The hotel has a little garden in the back, which can be relaxing when the weather is nice.
Coming from the US, the room was expensive, but this is because of the dollar weakness to the pound (2 to 1 almost !). All the similar hotels were in that price range anyway. London IS expensive.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
