We had an entry level room with shared bathroom for 3 nights. Our room was very spacious and functional with a view over the canal. The shared bathroom was always clean and I loved the potted plants in the window.
The hotel is within walking, or cycling, distance to the city centre so nicely located to be in the heart of things, or to take a step back and relax.
We found the hotel restaurant lacked ambience, but there are plenty of good places to eat within walking distance.
Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view and if you can pay a little extra I would go for an en-suite bathroom next time...

30 mins walk or 10 minutes by tram will take you to Lloyds from the city center. This famous hotel caters rooms ranging from 1 to 5 stars -- whichever budget you have.

We had a 2-star room overlooking the canal -- all white, very minimalistic, shower refreshingly unseparated from the rest of the space. The bed is heavenly, the room rather empty -- but a good value for money overall. The place itself is a monument to Dutch history and design -- don't miss the opportunity of staying there, it's a lovely cultural experience.

The breakfast can be a bit pricey -- and there are no cafes around, so you're kind of stuck to the restaurant every morning. However plenty of options for dinner: Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" within 10 mins walk, a Spanish "Mercat" almost across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor rooms with canal view. Remember -- 2-star rooms do not have any separation betw...

We stayed in April 2014 and loved every moment - definitely my favourite hotel in Amsterdam. Rooms are beautifully designed and functional, the food at the restaurant was sophisticated and the local area is peaceful and picturesque, with several tram stops very nearby. The staff are amazing too - ask Anne and David in the restaurant for local tips, they are wonderful.

We booked this hotel at a GREAT rate last minute for Konings Day. Its very swanky and it was clean. We had a room in the basement.. The decor was kind of amazing. There was free wifi, the desk upfont had very friendly staff and the bed was very comfortable.. I had two minor complaints. The WC smelt awful. It was clean and there was a fresh trash bag for some reason there was just this awful smell. AND the shower was in the middle of the room. Perhaps very sexy for a couple but I was a friend of mine, so showering was a bit of a task.

Room Tip: Ask for something not in the basement.

Dear Whitney,
Thank you for your kind review. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at the Lloyd Hotel. We are also very happy to read that the staff treated you well and that you found the bed to be comfortable. We hope you informed the reception about the toilet since we would have been able to take care of it immediately. If you choose to stay with us again, don’t refrain on telling us that you would like to have a seperate shower in the room as we have lots of those rooms available as well.
One again, thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
Kind regards,

We found this place by looking for novelty digs in the 'Dam. As we were given money towards our honeymoon we decided to treat ourselves to a 5* room and we were not disappointed. If we had been given the room with a swing or piano or bath in the middle of the room we would have been even more stoked BUT the one we had was huge, like an apartment. There was a bath big enough for two, big, soft bed and a sofa and table area near a television that we could get some home channels on.

On different levels there were art installations which were really fab and there was also a little museum explaining the history of the building which was brilliant and just a bit different to have it right where we stayed. There was also a library area to use and chill in.

We were up on the 5th floor and large panes of glass gave us views right down to the dining area. Breakfast was not included in the price and the food was expensive so we only had one breakfast there and stocked up at the supermarket for most of our food!

The tea and coffee facilities were really odd but interesting as they were in cupboards in communal areas. It would have been slightly better if they provided milk sachets there or a fridge but never mind!

The hotel is out of the centre so requires a tram ride to get there but it is easy to hop on and off and we invested in 72 hour passes and used them to get about quite a bit.
