We stayed 3 nights at this hotel last March. The rooms are modernly decorated and clean but a bit small comparing with other hotels we stayed in Europe. Our room was cleaned daily. The staff at the reception was friendly during our stay and made their best to help us by giving directions, recommendations etc.

The sound isolation between the rooms were poor. When the next door was shut down, we could hear all the noise in our bed which made us feel a liitle uncomfortable while sleeping.

The tram 1 passes just front of the hotel which makes it very easy to go city centre and airport.

Title of my review says it all really. Best choice for staying in Amsterdam. Next to the Vondelpark which is the best thing about Amsterdam in my opinion. Also tram 1 leaves from outside the door into the hear of the city or to Station lelylaan where you can get the train to Schiphol. Friendly staff, clean and modern. Quiet and good place to rest your head after traveling.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend last May. The hotel is brand new, very modern and clean. Cozy lobby with bar and friendly staff. The structure of the hotel is somewhat odd and our room was in the back tower, which can only be reached through a covered tunnel/walk-way. Slightly inconvenient, but worth the peace and quiet (far from street noise) The room was furnished very basically, in a somewhat minimalist style. Brand new bathroom with a really cool walk-in shower. Comfortable bed and nice bed-side lamps.

Breakfast was slightly pricey, but good. All organic food as far as I can remember. The whole theme of the hotel is eco-friendly. They had a nice service of renting out bikes to guests. The bikes were brand new, with very uncomfortable seats and no gears. If you're planning on biking a lot, you might want to consider getting something a little bit more fancy elsewhere.

Best part was the location. Great street (Overtoom), with plenty of shops and restaurants along the way. Tram stop directly in front of the door and the gorgeous Vondelpark is directly behind the hotel! Fantastic pizza place a few doors down from the hotel.

When we arrived I saw several airplanes flying very low close to the hotel so I though our stay would be a disaster due to the noise. I was wrong. The staff on reception told me this was unusual, and accepted not to charge me the total stay in case I wanted to cancel the rest of the booked nights, this was very kind and no other hotel usually accepts it. The soundproof was good and the airplanes didn't pass too many times anymore.
The overall impression about the hotel is strange, they advertise a bit too much about their "green" policy, but It think this is not the most important part for most travelers.
The location is excellent, right in front of a Tram stop. The rooms are not big but not too small, with comfortable beds and basic furniture (a table, two chairs and two bedtables), I would have needed a desk, as it was advertised in the premium room I booked, but there wasn't. Rooms and common places are clean and the bathroom, with just a shower, was big enough and clean. The overall decoration of the hotel is too dark, all the corridors painted in black and the rooms in white, not practical, as the paint is already spoilt and full of stains in most areas.
The staff is really friendly, attentive, very helpfull, with no exception, it was a pleasure to talk to them and the best of the hotel.
It was unusual that we could have a coffe and some sweets instead of the standard breakfast, as the bar-cafeteria was open 24 hours. This was very good for people who breakfast very little and paying the whole continental breakfast is not worth it. This is the first hotel that offers this alternative, most places I have visited they force you to their breakfast--as the bar is closed till they finish--or you have to go out and look for a cafeteria. The bar, however doesn't have too many choices, but the quality is good.
Other guests complain about the way to communicate both buildings, but it is well indicated and sort of fun to go through all the corridors and lift till our room, not a problem at all.
The parking was good but not enugh watched; maybe in Holland the rate of crime is low, but comming from Spain we were a bit concerned about the security of our car, when the parking door was remaining open for very long.
I think the hotel can improve substancially by changing the color of the walls, I am a doctor in Psychology and I know the strong incluence of this detail.The TV is also a bit small in comparison with most hotels nowadays.
In general our stay was quite pleasant and we would go back again if we travel to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Windows are good and quite soundproof, but we were in the second building at the back, I am not sure...

Nice affordable hotel with pleasent staff. Wonderful location for the main park (Vondelpark) aspecially when the weather is kind to you. The trams are 10 years from the hotel entrance. Be sure to listen carefully when they advise the route to the room as it can be challenging if you have a room in what the hotel term B block!!

You'll be surprised with this hotel. This is the proof that we can have the same comfort spending less natural resources. Very nice and relaxed staff. Tasty breakfast, with all you need. The bed itself is WOW! Very very confy! The decoration is minimalist, very clean. The bathroom is somewhat tech, because it spends much less water than a regular one. A little bit "out" of downtown, but you'll find IN THE VERY FRONT of the hotel a tramway station. Volndelpark is by walking distance. Finally, price quality ratio is very nice!

I enjoyed my stay in the Conscious hotel. The staff was friendly. The bike rental is a good service and the location close to the Vondelpark. is perfect. Breakfast is simple.
Gluten-free is only at request available. The rooms are clean, and very noiseless for a hotel in the middle of Amsterdam.
