Reviewed 10 March 2011

Trendy city centre hotel, but although our room had a shower and a bath tub no shower handle was available neither in the shower or the bath tub. We still wonder why the management took the decision to remove them...

Anyway, breakfast area was very inviting and the overall room experience above avarage. Situated in a quiet steet near to many major Amsterdam attractions.

We were a group of 6 staying at Hotel Vondel from 18/2/11 to 21/2/11, when we arrived at the hotel we were very impressed at the reception desk at the high standard of decor. Once we got to our rooms we were happy to see that it was very clean with a lovely bathroom. The bedroom is a bit on the small side but it was everything we needed for a short break. The bathroom was lovely and always kept very clean. The only downside to our room really is that we were backing onto people's houses and had no view.

The location of the hotel is excellent and close to the square and tram lines. There are plenty of restaurants around the main square and we ate somewhere different every night. The food is very expensive though.

The breakfast in the hotel is satisfactory. On our first morning there, we were told that breakfast was included in the price of the room. The breakfast bar had a good selection however, some items were not cooked properly such as the mushrooms and the beans had been left too long and had dried out, not very appetising! Some items were not replenished very quickly and you had to wait for more to be brought out.

As we were told breakfast was included we had quite a shock when we checked out on the Monday morning to be told there was a 92 euro bill charged to our room for breakfast and city tax. We explained to the person on reception that we had been told breakfast was included but we had to pay for this with no apology. I suggested to the recpetion desk that it should be made clear on check in. We also had to pay 12 euros for a city tax charge, which I have never come across before and I am still not clear what it is for.

All in all, we had an excellent holiday and would return to Hotel Vondel again but would not be having the breakfast!!

I was impressed with this hotel. For Amsterdam the rooms are good size. The price was good. Short walk to the tram and entertainment area. Very nice boutique hotel. The one downside is that they charge for wifi.

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
