“Great location”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We have just returned from a great stay at this hotel. It is a small, family run hotel. Very friendly. The location is perfect - a stone's throw from the Rijksmuseum. The staff were all very helpful. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Simple but good breakfast. It would have been good to have had some tea or coffee making facilities in the room, although there is a small bar where it is possible to have refreshments. Would definitely recommend.

Dear Janet,

Thank you for your wonderful words and great feedback!

We wanted to inform you that our Comfort-, Triple- and Familyrooms all have coffee and tea facilities in the room. These rooms are more spacious and offer more comfort then our Small Single Room and Small Twin/Double Rooms.

Hopefully we may welcome you again when you're in Amsterdam!

Kind regards,

The HOTEL AALDERS Family & Staff

My daughter and I stayed here in 2 single rooms on the ground floor for 5 days, during which time we visited all the things we wanted to see, during our trip. The Hotel Aalders is within 5 minutes of the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Stedelijk Museum. The tram line is 5 minutes walk away and the lines 2 & 5 take you to Central Station via Leidesplein, Spui, near to Dam Square, and within walking distance of everything that is on your must see list
The rooms were extremely comfortable, exceptionally clean, with a good hot shower in the bathroom. Breakfasts were plentiful with a good selection of meats, cereals, breads, cheese, eggs, fresh fruit in fact everything that you need, including juices, tea and coffee. The staff are very friendly and helpful, willing to give advice on places to eat, and places to visit. On the first day we arrived early but were able to leave our cases whilst we went out, and on the last day we were able to leave our cases after we had checked out, go out for the day, then come back and wait in the lounge bar for our transport back to the airport.
I have absolutely no criticisms of the hotel at all. I would recommend it to anyone who visits the city, either on business or pleasure. Thank you Hotel Aalders, we will be back - Lynne and Leanne Stevens

Hotel is conveniently located between Van Gogh Museum Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum in a very nice neighborhood. My accommodations were a modest single room but very clean and the price, location, breakfast included was exactly what I was after. The staff was very helpful and friendly as well. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location, near the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum!
Maybe 10 mins to Vondelpark and other great locations. Staff was friendly and helpful especially since my French bankcard didn't work the first night I was there! (No idea why)
I'd definitely go back!

The hotel is located in a very nice neighborhood , near the museums and near a very elegant
shopping area.
It is very easy to get to the hotel from the airport by public bus, almost from door to door by bus 197.
The staff is very friendly , the hotel very clean as well as the room . We were in a middle size room
and it was very comfortable for two people.
The breakfast was abundant and tasty .

One block from the Tram (2,3,5). Take the tram from Centraal Station to Rijksmuseum.
The Hotel is located one block from the Van Gogh Museum.
Outstanding breakfast (they even offered to provide an early breakfast, per my early departure!!!).
Clean room, clean bathroom.
Bad pillows!
Good Wi-Fi.
I will certainly come back when in Amsterdam.
