Lovely hotel and very conveniently situated. Pleasant staff and comfortable room. Great coffee shop with a very relaxed vibe. Situated on the beautiful Vondelpark which is a lovely place to walk. The tram stops right outside the hotel so very easy to get too and from train or airport.

The hotel was as good as we remembered it. The three day tram ticket is now 17.50 euros but still good value, and the stop being right outside the front door was handy. The staff are still excellent, the drinks are typical hotel prices Bombay Sapphire Gin and Elderflower Tonic eight euros. Hot drinks were pretty reasonable Chinese Green Tea about 2.50 euros. One of the top Indonesian restaurants Blauw is located just around the corner. But as I didn't book before arrival it was fully booked for the weekend. The Kartika is located three tram stops further down Overtoom towards town central. This cannot be booked online only by phone, this was fully booked Friday night, we managed to get the last table on Saturday night. Beds are really comfortable, the rear block (B) is the quieter, being back from the road.

Room Tip: Block B is situated to the rear of the hotel and away from the busy Overtoom.

Just stayed at this hotel with my family, it was everything it promised to be. My son and his cousin, were particularly impressed with the simple rooms and friendly staff. Parking in their garage was a major plus for me. Breakfast was great. A negative point was the automatically closing doors and the limited space to manoeuvre bags through them, push a button for the lift and climb in.

The theme of the Conscious is that it is self aware, and missed you till you arrived. The place is littered with speech bubbles of different objects speaking to you: 'I am your room, we haven't met yet but I think I'm going to like you', I am your light, turn me on but don't abuse me'. Thankfully the toilet didn't have one but it would make a great caption competition.

Apart from that it is a pretty basic place, nice and clean though with fresh linens on the beds and we had a nice bright room overlooking a quiet back street. It is at the top end of Vondelpark so a nice stroll to the museum quarter though the tram to central station does stop right outside the door.

The seating area downstairs is nice, lots of books to browse bit the outside is filthy and littered with cigarette ends.

Like other reviewers I found the staff a bit arrogant, a cover for incompetence, painful to wait 15 minutes for a coffee and croissant in the morning when there were about 5 people standing around doing nothing. A bit of training would sort it out.

If you have a car then you can book a space in the garage which is a bit cheaper (20Euros?) than parking in the street (27) though if you arrive at the weekend you don't have to pay for street parking.

Very nice hotel, clean enough.
Breakfast not includet - not too cheap but excellent.
Good: Tram stop in front of the door, clean rooms, breakfast, *conscousness", free wifi.
Not so good: rather loud slamming doors, filthy outside (not inside!), most people working there are very nice, some at the reception desk were quite arrogant.

My husband and I went to Amsterdan in mid July 2014 and stayed 3 days at Conscious Hotel. Great customer service, friendly and helpful; room small but perfect for couple with two small luggage; no frigobar, safe, and great shower.
The room was quiet.
Wifi included in the price. A/C in the room.
Located at the south part of the beautiful Vondelpark a little far from all the attractions but easy Tram 1 ride from Central Station, about 25 min. For us was worth it to buy the tram card for 48 hours and we had an easy ride from center, and museums to the hotel. Many restaurants, cafes, markets, and pharmacies closed by.
Great breakfast at Tasty- up the street.

We stayed for 3 nights here and it is with mixing feelings. I think the hotel has a good mission and idea about eco-friendly etc but it was executed poorly. Guests could experience a great time or horrible nightmare at this hotel depending the front desk staff or if you are lucky to get a good room.

We arrived at night due to evening flight, and our room got messed up. But still I don't understand why we paid more for the PREMIUM room, yet it is a smaller room than a STANDARD room??? And the hotel has Tower A and Tower B, as others mentioned, I would advise you to stay within Tower A. Most front desk staff are nice, but the ones working night shifts are not as experienced to handle requests professionally.

I would recommend trying out the breakfast for at least 1 morning. Most of the food are of good quality you won't regret it.

The map from hotel has tram lines in there. I found it helpful and better than maps from the guidebook.

If you need transfers I highly suggest you book the Electric taxi, reserve online 24 hrs before to save extra 25%. We booked our ride to the airport, the driver was friendly and arrived 10 minutes early!!!

Hi,

Thank you for the review! There are more differences between the standard and premium rooms than just room size; the premium rooms have iPod docking stations, luxury coco-mat beds and an extra chair at the writing desk. Since we transform abandoned office buildings it sometimes means that we have to meet the challenges that come along with it, such as with layout.

Glad to hear you liked our electric taxi partner, the breakfast and our map though!

About your tip regarding tower A and tower B; if you stay in tower A you are very likely to miss our roof safari and wouldn't want anyone to miss out on that. True, logistics might not be ideal, but that comes with the forementioned challenges of the office building.

Hope to see you again!
