Reviewed 15 May 2011

This hotel is expensive, but every hotel in Amsterdam is expensive, and I'd bet most are not as nice as the Hotel Aalders. This hotel is walkable to the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh Museum, and only a block away from the 2 and 5 trams which will take you to the more lively parts of the city. The staff was very nice, and willing to answer the many questions we had. The hotel is on a quiet street, so we could get a good night's sleep. The only complaint: the pillows were very uncomfortable.

Stayed: May 2011

Stayed at the Aalders for 4 nights and was not dissappointed. Comfortable beds, large room, adequate breakfast, polite staff. What more can one want? A boquet of tulips even awaited us in our room.

Room Tip: book early and ask about room

Small European hotel in a fantastic location, clean & simple rooms, very decent breakfast, very helpful staff. Near Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, canal boat stops; quiet street, Breakfast rooms in front and back -- back with view of magnificent magnolia, flowering in April. Elevator (fortunately, because stairs are steep and narrow), narrow corridors. Bike rental. We hope to return.

The Aalders is a typical European hotel, nothing too flash, but good service and a fantastic location near Vondel Park, Leidseplein and the Rijks museum. You can easily walk to all of these attractions within a few minutes and it's a great place if you take your jogging seriously!

Our stay at the hotel Aalders was only for 2 nights but we would definitely return due to its convenience.

My husband & I had a double room - the only problem was that there was not enough room between the bed, the door & the wall to get our suitcases in so they had to be lifted (each one weighed about 22kg so was not an easy feat) over the end of the bed. However, the shower was hot & water pressure good - which counts for a lot.

My sister's room was upgraded by the hotel on their own volition on checkin - her room was very large with oodles of room. One interesting feature was the fake chest of drawers.

The downstairs coffeeshop/bar area was pleasant & the prices fair. Breakfast was good - but don't expect bacon & eggs, sausages etc. On offer were boiled eggs, pastries, bread for toast, cereals, cheeses, meats, juice & tea or coffee. The staff were very helpful & nothing was too much trouble.

As we were lesving for a 2 week river cruise, we had the hotel order us a taxi to take us to the embarkation point. When we reached the wharf, the boat was not there & noone on any of the other boats knew where it was. However, out intrepid taxi driver dropped us off & then went searching for the boat, finding it on the other side of the river. he then came back & picked us up. The cruise company had not updated the website so the wrong embarkation point was listed. If all Amsterdam taxi drivers were like this one, then everyone would be smiling.

All in all, the hotel staff were friendly & helpful. One of the sons was serving in the bar on one of the nights & was very friendly & chatty.

excellent choice of the hotel, friendly stuff, clean rooms but small (if you are staying for a short time...you nevermind :)), delicious breakfast, very good location - close to everywhere - only few minutes to rijksmuseum and van gogh museum, approx. 10 minutes by walk to city centre...i really recommend :)
