“Great Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2008

The Bilderberg was a great hotel. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The bed's are amazingly comfortable. It's located in an upscale area of Amsterdam, just steps away from the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum, and one block from the tram stop. Leidseplein is only a five minute walk or one tram stop away. Many great eateries are located near by as well as great coffee shops. Amsterdam is quite small and can be traversed on foot but the proximity to the tram stop is a great bonus on those long days. The hotel in my opinion, is great for any traveler. If your looking to party and enjoy the coffee shops the location is good. A short walk or tram ride will take you to many great spots. At the end of the night you can return to your quite neighborhood and enjoy a goods night sleep. If the museums or your reason for traveling the Bilderberg is in a perfect location. Overall this is a great property.

had four nights in noisy superior room on ground floor corner, damn mopeds at two oclock. though comfortable bed and big bathroom, no bidet, with internet connection. apple and turndown bed each night, radio tuned to skyradio. staff at reception very helpful re restaurants-- went to leidesplein area to eat. good breakfast included in price paid--
champagne eggs bacon cereals juice rolls croissants. int herald trib available to read at breakfast. Stored our baggage after we checked out as we were to be collected by car late afternoon. map provided as well as a couple of money-off vouchers for canal and other trips. very convenient for museums.

recommend canal trip to orientate in city. trams convenient but jerky. watch out for cyclists who come at you from all directions and on the pavement.

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Amsterdam. It's just a few minutes walk from the museums and swanky retailers. If you're looking to get away from the crowded areas of Amsterdam, it's perfect.

Seeing the the location is ideal, it's not cheap. Expect to pay at least a few hundred euros a night. If you are expecting a spacious room for that price, forget it. It's an old building and the rooms aren't exactly sprawling. When I checked in I was disappointed at the rooms size and asked for a bigger room, which I was given. Still, barely enough room for 2 people with luggage.

The room was very upscale and the bed was verrry nice. The WC is as nice as they get in Amsterdam without spending e600 a night.

We were extremely happy to know that we were staying in the upscale part of Amsterdam. The hotel is a beautiful boutique style hotel. We decided to upgrade our standard room to a deluxe room. We were glad we made the decision! The room was very comfortable. Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. You could not ask for a better location! Ladies, the Louis Vuitton store is directly behind the hotel! All the major museums are within a block of each other and the I Amsterdam sign is directly across from the hotel. The hotel is really not that far from the city center. You can actually walk to Central Station in about 30 - 40 minutes, however, make sure you know where you are going! You can easily make the wrong turn! The tram is within a block away, so if walking is intimidating, you can hop on the tram. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel!

We loved the location of this hotel, on a very quiet tree-lined street. We checked in on a Monday and before seeing the room asked if there were any upgrades available. We got a business class room with a little balcony. The room was indeed small by American standards, but our friends from Amsterdam who visited our room said our bathroom was larger than their home bathroom. The room was extremely cute. Very close to the tram, therefore close to everything we wanted to see.

This hotel is situated in the Fashion and Musuem district and is 5 minutes walking from Leidseplein. Check in was quick and they wished my Husband a Happy Birthday and also put the champagne in the room as requested.

The room isn't massive but the bed is really comfy. It is very modern with an excellent bathroom. You can oder breakfast but at 17euros each we decided to eat out every morning.

The bar is nice but again expensive and we only stayed for 1 drink.

We didn't use the spa but it looked very nice.

Overall a fab location and really helpful staff.

My party stayed in this hotel for 3 nights 7-10 February & booked through hotel.connect.com - where we had 3 nights for the price of 2 saving £630! The hotel is in a beautiful location, close to the Reichs Musuem & adjacent to exclusive shopping area. A short stroll took us to the canal & tram stop & it was aproximately 20 minutes walk to the Anne Frank House. We stayed in a triple & a twin room. The triple room was extremley spacious with all mod cons. The shared room was much smaller, but our party had no complaints. The hotel is very clean & the staff were extremley courteous & helpful when asked for directions, restaurant reservations etc etc. Breakfast is buffet style - cereals, selection of breads, meat, scrambled & boiled eggs. Our only complaint was constantly having to ask for pots of water to make tea & coffee, as they only gave us 2 small ones for our party of 5. The Spa in the hotel is actually a small room on the ground floor with a bath, shower with jets & a recliner - give it a miss! We went to a chinese place for massage ($20) over in Dam Square. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby, we ate in a great tapas place & had lovely bagel tapas in bagel & bean. A great time had by all & would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone.
