Firstly the location of the hotel is great and relatively cheap parking is available close to the city stadium. We stayed for 2 nights and I really would not recommend to anyone to stay longer that (Ideally don't stay at all)! Our room was tiny and dirty with bits of broken wood and rubbish from a previous guest underneath the bed. Forget moving around - as soon as you enter the room and open up your suitcase all available floor space is gone! The bathroom was around 2 square meters. When sitting on the toilet, my legs nearly touched the door and the sink was more or less in my face.
The member of staff at reception was appalling and consistently not very helpful. The entire atmosphere and standard of this property has nothing to do with a hotel and can only be described as a satisfactory hostel.

Stayed in Hotel City Garden over New Years, was bit worried after reading some of the reviews but was happy enough.. The small double rooms are small but clean. We hsd problem with leaking shower and the staff moved us to a bigger and better room. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

This hotel is in a great location for visiting museums and attractions, and is also very close to a huge variety of designer shops. Tram stops to other locations were quite close too. The hotel room itself was clean and reasonably comfortable, with an adequate sized bathroom. The room was slightly on the small side, but if you are out sightseeing all day this shouldn't be too much of a problem. The beds were made and towels were changed every day during our three day stay. Staff at the front desk were always helpful. Overall, a decent hotel in a good area for sightseeing.

The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of the major museums and tram stops for going further afield. We had excellent breakfasts in the hotel but had to go elsewhere for lunch and dinner. We had very good meals in the Van Gogh museum and a local Thai restaurant. The area is a bit dead in the evenings, Dam Square being better. Our room was very cramped as an extra single bed had been squeezed in. Our beds were not very comfortable. Watch out for cyclists - there are thousands of them and they are all mad.

Room Tip: Try and get a park view. The street view is awful.

The hotel is located next to Vondelpark (some rooms have view of park) and very close to some major museums (Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk) in a neighborhood of mixed residential and (expensive) shopping. Trams very close. Rooms are very small but clean and with the expected amenities (tea kettle, wifi, safe. There is an elevator but some room are a few stairs up or down from elevator levels, so check if you have mobility issues. Breakfast is ok, not too extensive a choice. My only problem was that my window was easily accessible from garden so I had to keep it closed - ask for higher floors. Also street facing room may be noisy on summer weekend evenings, ask for park-facing room.

We had no idea what this hotel would be like, but wanted to be an easy walk to museums, especially the Rijksmuseum. As it turned out, we had a very short walk to the museum. The hotel was clean, the extra 10 euros for breakfast was well worth it, and the access to public transportation was terrific. The room price was reasonable as well. We booked through Booking.Com, but the desk clerk, one of the most knowledgeable and helpful desk clerks in my experience, said it would have been quite a bit cheaper if we had booked directly. We felt quite safe in the neighborhood even at night. We had a new security safe in the room, a good shower and a comfortable bed. The room temperature was fine and the privacy drapes were in good shape.The downside of this hotel was the size of the room. It was really quite tiny. Since we spent only sleep time and personal care time in the room, it did not matter to us, but it might to others. I rated this hotel only average as, I think, others would see the room size as a problem. If the room had been larger, it would have been a very good rating.

Room Tip: Being in the back of the hotel kept us from hearing street noise.
