Hotel Vondel

Reviewed 6 October 2013

In contrast to my stay at the Double Tree Hilton Congresbury, earlier in September I was in Amsterdam on business. At the Rai Centre for an exhibition. My business partner and I stayed at the Vondel Hotel and found it extremely welcoming my room was first class the breakfast was terrific.

I will just say though the problem of coffee seems to be common across the globe, there is never enough! waitresses drift about and never seem to top up a coffee cup! Why can't we coffee drinkers be given a POT of coffee and be left to sort ourselves out with top ups. A small cafetiere would do it. It seems weird to me that tea drinkers are afforded this luxury while we coffee drinkers suffer thirst and wanting!

Enjoyed my stay here for 3 nights. Quirky boutique hotel with narrow corridors and smallish rooms but I enjoyed it. Walls are a bit thin too, had to use ear plugs in the mornings as vacuuming in hallways was quite loud. Very comfy bed, great staff and an ideal location. Would definitely return. If you're looking for a quirky boutique hotel experience and are prepared to overlook a few things then this is for you

Best location in Amsterdam. Easy walk to the big museums and Vondel Park AND the restaurants that have more tourists than locals .

We had an upgrade to a junior suite which was luxurious and quiet. Three big floor to ceiling windows ( the street is quiet) - nice sitting area and great linens and king size bed.

Front desk staff were perfect - booking restaurants and giving advice on getting about.

Yes, the stairs are steep but there are elevators so you don't have to deal with the stairs.

It rained all four days we were there so never tried the outdoor seating which looked lovely.

Room Tip: The junior suite is worth it.

I was traveling with Vermont Bicycle Tours, After reading the mixed reviews I had some trepidations but found my second floor room facing the front of the building over the main lobby area to be quite nice. It was as nice a room as I have stayed in for the most part, and better than many name Hotel chain rooms. I had only breakfast one morning at the buffet and the food was good if not great. The internet service, or lack thereof, was a disappointment, but there were plenty of Starbucks, and an Apple store, nearby.

Room Tip: Street noise was not a problem, There are several linked buildings, I know the one where you check i...

Small hotel, but great localization and attention. The hotel is small but the rooms are big and new. The breakfast is good but a little expensive. It´s very close to the Vondelpark where you can ride a bike peaceful.

Room Tip: It´s a small hotel whith good restaurant, but they don´t have fitness center and kids ativities.

When returning to Amsterdam after a 2 day jaunt to Belgium, my boyfriend and I decided against staying in the hotel we had been staying in to start our trip so we looked for a central location. Hotel Vondel was just perfect, extremely close to many different places (park, museums, restaurants, etc) yet far from the busy central area - but only a few tram stops away.
The service was impeccable, with the linens being changed despite only staying for 2 nights. The room was a decent size and a comfy bed. Absolutely no complaints. When we next return to Amsterdam, I am sure we will look up this hotel again.

The hotel is very clean and quiet, and our triple room was large enough for us. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

It's only 5 mins walk to leidse Plein where you will find plenty of restaurants and entertainment, and its also very close to the museums and canal boat tours. Tram stop is at the end of the street.

If you arrive at central station take the #1 Tram and get off close to the Marriott hotel.

Didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on that.

I would recommend this hotel when visiting Amsterdam.
