“Good location. Fine, but a little pricey”
Reviewed 2 February 2011

The hotel is very well located, close to good restaurants and Vondel Park. Nice, modern and beautiful decoration. The room was a little disappointing for the price: too small and the bathroom was not so good. The shower door didn't close and the bathroom was totally wet after shower. My mini freezer was broken and the maintenance guy took too long to fix it.

I stayed at Hotel Vondel five years ago, and was slightly concerned by the poor reviews recently as it is on the expensive side.

We were very happy that we had nothing to be concerned about. We had booked a small standard double and there was plenty of room, much bigger than a lot of bedrooms in Amsterdam. The room was on the third floor, as far from reception as you can get. Watch out which lift you get as you can't access all of the third floor from the first lift. The room was modern and smart, and cleaned perfectly everyday. The bathroom was the best bit, with a massive double shower and double his and hers sink. There were load of good tv channels and the bed was really comfy.

Would definitely go back, if we could afford it.

Fantastic location and great little hotel. Basement rooms on road side can be noisy with guests arriving but we were garden side which was lovely. Close walking distance to everything and friendly staff

We stayed in Hotel Vondel for a one year aniversary. The hotel was nice and clean, the staff were helpful and it's location was out on the edge of the city away from the hussle and bussle so if you don't mind a 10 minute walk into the center and want somewhere fairly quiet it's excellent (it suited us fine!)

We would stay here again with no hesitation but would insist upon booking that we were not given a basement floor room, the basement rooms are directly below the restaurant, all you can hear all night and early in the morning is VERY loud chair moving/table moving and loud talking and people walking about, it made sleeping very difficult before midnight!

The breakfast was excellent, with a good selection of croissants, rolls etc etc. they will also provide a cooked breakfast on request.

We did see a mouse one evening running around in the bar area , it was cold outside and he probably wanted to stay somewhere warm, overall it's a nice hotel so why not in the hotel Vondel!!

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at Vondel and we can recommend this hotel to everyone who like to stay in the centre and in walking distance of things do see and do. The only slight criticism would be the breakfast: 20 Eur - not worth it!

Reviewed 24 October 2010

We chose the hotel through Trip Advisor and the good reviews, and booked online. We are used to city hotels being expensive but when we saw the size of the room! Compared to other city/boutique hotels we have stayed in, we were very disappointed. It was like a converted garage and we could just makie out a square of sky through the window if we craned our necks! If we had been larger there was no way we could have sat on the loo! The housekeeping was very poor - it was clean etc but we had to ask every day for more tea bags, sugar, tissues and there were never any tea spoons! Public areas were nice and we didn't eat there and chose to have breakfast in cafes. Would recommend for location but not at this price.
