“For this type of Hotel it is Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

My wife and I spent three nights here and were very impressed

Location - you know where it is before you book so we were aware it was a little outside the city centre but you would have to pay more for a more central location and there is an excellent tram service which stops just outside the hotel which services Cenral Station and Dam Square, just pick up a pass for the required number of days from the Airport Tourist Information centre when you arrive

Rooms - it's Amsterdam the buildings are skinny so you don't expect a very large room and are you going to stay all day in your room? - they are large enought, clean, serviced well each day, with basic IKEA style white furniture - If you wanted luxury you would have to pay for it, but I would say the beds were great, just hard enough and clean bedding

Food - Breakfast was great, stanard continental but fresh and always looked after and topped up the juice mixed fruit were fresh, more than enough
Evening meals well priced and tasted great - mainly Pizza and Pasta dishes with a few meat dishes but as you will only spend a couple of days here more than enough selection. Look in town and you will not get it at a better price

Staff & Service - This was were this hotel shone they were fantastic and could not do enough for you. It was good old fashioned service where they were there to look after you - could a large chain say this these days?

Overview - It's not a plush fancy hotel in a centre location - but you are not paying those prices, but it's clean and you will be well looked after - Do it!

Room Tip: Try the evening meals as you will not find cheaper in town and you can eat before you go out for the...

One of the most satisfying hotel stays I've had anywhere--and I travel a lot. Hotel Larende sets the example for small European hotels. Beautiful contemporary design with high end finishes, beyond-immaculate housekeeping, genial, helpful staff who can't do enough for you--all at a great price point. The included breakfast is top rate. The restaurant also serves terrific pizza, salads and other offerings, made to order and delivered quickly. The staff will make your favorite coffee or tea drink 24/7 at no charge. There are no phones or Kleenex in the rooms, but consider such amenities as firm mattresses, high quality linens, thick, fluffy towels, a towel-warmer/radiator in each bathroom, jetted tubs--well, you get the idea. We stayed there at the beginning and end of our trip to Europe and both times had lovely, quiet rooms overlooking an internal courtyard. Hotel Larende is a great recommendation for anyone traveling to Amsterdam who is looking for a low key neighborhood that's within easy reach of all the sights and activities.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the street.

The location of the hotel is a little bit out of the way about a 20 minute walk to dam square from here where we spent most of our time.
The staff were friendly and helpful, we got two free pints of beer!.
The rooms were lovely and cleaned everyday with fresh sheets and towels.
I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind a bit of walking as it is a bit out of the way but very nice.

Hotel Larende was the best hotel we stayed at during our trip to Europe. The owner and staff were extremely helpful and generous. The hotel has a tram stop out front and it is a few minute ride into the city centre and other attractions. The room was very large with modern accents.
The food in the restaurant was amazing and we enjoyed some of the best pizza we have ever eaten. We had an early morning flight to catch and the owner had an early breakfast prepared for my fiancee and I at 5:00 in the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope to make it back another time.

Stayed in a single room for 1 night. A bit cramped but what more do you need than a bed & a shower?
The hotel is above an Italian restaurant on the ground floor so you get a nice oregano smell aroud the place!
For 41EUR which included a really good, well presented continental breakfast, I'll be recommending it.

We stayed 5 nights.
- Services : very good, very friendly stuff and helpful. Some stuff couldn't speak english very well so it was difficult for us to comunicate sometime.

- Room : Nice bed and clean. First before I booked I though was a carpet but the wood was also nice too.

- The food : excellent ( small breakfast buffet & from menu)

Unfortunately, we stayed on 1st floor, so noisy at night because ppl from upstair and downstair talked, walked. And early morning + dinner time smell of food from downstair, it bothered us.

- Direction : not far from the center, you can take the tram but we loved to walk and explore along the road so it took us about 30 mins I guess. The zoo was interesting. There are many salons along the road and the area that I stayed most of restaurant are Turkey food and Arab food.

- I hadn't done research on restaurant so we randomly walked in, most of the restaurant we went weren't quite well. We ate at restaurant at our hotel almost every night, It was better than all restaurants that we went. You have to research for restaurant if you're looking for a good food not junk food. :b

Next time if we have a chance to visit Amsterdam again, we won't stay here because we like to try something new. :))

BTW/ Thanks for everything. I like this hotel.

We stayed one night at a double room in winter time. The room was spotless, sleek and quite spacious. The bed was a proper king size bed (not two single mattresses together) Clean crisp white sheet and towels! The room had simple relaxing decor but well designed and uncluttered. It was exactly how it was shown on their website.
Bathroom was new and had all the amenities, hair dryer and vanity mirror. Once again, spotless. No carpet floor, which we really really loved! Heating was sufficient and you could adjust the temperature.

The staff were great and gave very good service. Breakfast was delicious with many selections. Dining room was comfortable, clean and modern.

The location might be a little out of the city. So you will need to hop on the tram which is easy. But it's definitely worthwhile. We would recommend this hotel to everyone and hope to come back again!
