Hotel La Boheme
Ranked #44 of 376 Hotels in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Hotel is perfectly located near Leidseplein, one of the main bar/food areas. Just a 3 minute walk from the tram stop. It is on a main street, so if you have a room facing that way you will hear the tram go by often and many people on the streets.
GREAT value for the location. But our double room was tired and worn down. We stayed in November 2011 and I've read that some rooms may have been updated, but ours was not. I would check with hotel before booking to ensure a newer room.
Staff was so friendly and like all Dutch people, spoke perfect English. Breakfast was small, but adequate. Good service at breakfast made up for the lack of options.
I would stay here again for the value in Amsterdam and the location to everything you want to do and see. We walked everywhere :)

Lovely, clean and recently renovated Hotel. Great location. And, the staff are amazing! We arrived at 8:30 am and they made every effort to get us in our room early. Meanwhile, waiting in the cafe with delicious coffee made our day. The breakfast is delicious. Staff are very knowledgeable about Amsterdam and will go out of their way to assist you with tickets and bus passes. The bus to and from the airport stops on the corner, takes just 30min and costs only 4 Euros. Wonderful movie theatre across the street and within 15 minutes you can walk to any site in Amsterdam. Enjoy your stay here. We'll be back soon!

Room Tip: Stairs are steep -- avoid top floor if you have a problem with stairs.

The rooms were clean and the location was perfect. WiFi was reliable. Breakfast was consistently good, fresh, and plentiful. The staff was helped us research details of where we wanted to go and things we wanted to see in Amsterdam and also made great recommendations.

We arrived half an hour before our allocated check-in time, but our room was available and so they let us check in early, which was a lovely touch. Mimi the cat was taking a break, the weather was quite cold and she had decided to hide behind the reception computer where it was nice and warm!

Our room was on the top floor, and the stairs are just as steep as everyone keeps saying. The room itself was small but functional, though the chair in the bathroom between the sink and angled roof was a curious addition - I'm quite skinny but was completely unable to make use of it!

The bed was really comfortable, the room was warm, breakfast was fine, the staff were all lovely (and being able to take a couple of guidebooks from reception to our room was great), and while we took a slightly awkward route to get to the hotel, once you get your bearings and start to learn the city you realise how well-located the hotel is.

Had a wonderful stay at La Boheme for 3 days. The rooms were sunny and clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the breakfasts were delicious. The best part was the staff at the front desk - they were very warm, friendly and helpful and gave great tips on places to visit and eat. Try out De Koe for dinner/drinks just down the road! Highly recommend La Boheme.

Room Tip: We had a 3 bedded room on the 4th floor. Only cautionary remark is the stairs are very steep and nar...

Perfect base to explore the city from. Friendly and helpful service, breakfast was included in our stay which was a pleasant surprise and the room was more than adequate for our short stay. Some nice local amenities and restaurants.
