Avenue Hotel
Ranked #173 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Stayed in April 2014 for several days whilst on business in Amsterdam. The room was pretty average, but the hotel internet was just dreadfully slow and unresponsive, with web search pages taking minutes to complete, if at all, and many times with complete drop outs or pages failing to complete after minutes. This was despite a 'strong' signal, and of course, I did politely ask the Hotel Management to get their internet service provider to sort out the issues. I honestly cannot recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to do any kind of serious business work that involves you being able to access email or the internet. On the breakfast front, it was pretty basic and bland cold cuts of processed meats, and rather obviously 'canned' fruit salad - but the 'hot' buffet of salty scrambled eggs and baked beans was really unacceptable - hotels that do not pay more attention to their presentation of breakfast are destined to go the way of the dinosaurs - they have to think from a corporate perspective about being seen to do better to survive. Cleanliness in the bedroom was unremarkable, but the cleaner omitted to replace an empty loo paper roll - so sure I can (and did) go and ask the front desk for another one, but it's not nice as a customer to have to do this when there are other people queuing for attention as well. So my overall rating of the hotel is low, personally I would never consider this hotel again next time I am on business in Amsterdam, and I really don;t want to influence other people, but anyone reading this should perhaps look at the many other hotels in the immediate vicinity.

Room Tip: Look at all of the reviews of other nearby Hotels, and good luck

We stayed here for one night after our river cruise on the Rhine. I was there with my sister and our senior citizen parents. The hotel is conveniently located to all the sites in the city, and not a long walk from the train station and area where the boats are docked. (I'm a walker though. For people not used to walking a lot, I would suggest a cab to the boats or train station.)

We were in a suite for four people, which was essentially two small rooms with an open doorway between them. (So don't expect any real privacy except in the bathroom.) The bathroom is also not especially large for the number of people this room sleeps.

But overall, we were happy with it because of the location and the decent price.

Great 3 night break. Clean hotel. Good hearty self service buffet breakfast.
Comfy rooms albeit a bit on the small side and bathrooms size of a broom cupboard.
Great location to Central station and Dam square and an ideal basic sleeping hole.
Would recommend and would certainly book again. Thank you.

My first trip to amsterdam, myself and 2 others stayed here in a triple room, 108, very nice room looking out onto the Main Street. Not a lot of noise from outside at all! Very quiet, it's other people staying in the hotel that make the most noise! Room was clean and beds made everyday. Nice hot shower/bath. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was really good, I'm a fussy eater but i ate most of what the breakfast had to offer, there was cereal and cold meats and cheeses. Hot food, bacon, potatoes, pancake type things, beans and scrambled egg which was really yummy! Nice juices, orange, apple, tropical and also tea and coffee. The hotel overall was excellent, I was abit worried due to some bad reviews I read but I'm glad I booked here as my stay was brilliant! The hotel is 5 min walk from central station! And very close to the square! I'm defiantly going back to Amsterdam again and would defiantly consider booking this hotel again as i could not fault it!

The location of the Avenue Hotel is fantastic. It is within 10 minutes walking of both Amsterdam Centraal and Dam Square. The breakfast at the hotel was really good with a hot side of eggs, bacon, potatoes and cold side with cereal and fruit. The service at the hotel is friendly and helpful. The wi-fi is strong when it works, but it would only work about half the time from my room. Also, there is not a separate area for the shower in the bathroom, it is all one big floor, so when you shower it floods the whole bathroom. It's not terrible, but it is kind of annoying. Overall, I enjoy this hotel and have stayed there the last two times I have been to Amsterdam, and would recommend it to anyone.

A number of historic buildings make up the Avenue Hotel. Part of these premises even dates back to the 17th century.

Since that time the building has had many different owners and served different purposes. It has now turned into a hotel, that is up to contemporary standards. The rooms are divided over the different parts of the hotel so they all have a unique style and shape. You can reach all floors by elevator. Our 3 star-hotel has 82 comfortable rooms. Furthermore we offer free WIFI-connection and continental breakfast. All our rooms come with a flatscreen-tv, private bathroom with shower and/or bath, airconditioning and a desk.
