We had a wonderful experience at the hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful, and the room was nice and decorated according to "the philosopher" theme. We were in the Karl Marx room which was a nice room; although it was slightly odd that the room description was a double bed but it was two single mattresses put together.... More

Having seen the images on the website, I was very disappointed in this accommodation. I booked a single room, which was on the third floor. It was room 34, small, and clean, but very basic, and not at all of the standard shown online. The walls connecting to the corridor and the lift, and the door were very flimsy, so... More

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and well decorated but was a little small for two people. It had patio doors that lead to a small garden which was a nice touch and meant we could sit outside. The bathroom was a little cramped and could do with a refit as it... More

Came back to Amsterdam for out 10th Anniversary, and stayed in this hotel, we were put up in the Sigmund Freud Suite? Which was large clean and tidy, everything you'd need for a city break. Prior to arrival I made arrangements for chocolates and champaign on our arrival, both of which were fantastic. Ideally located in Vondel Park district, close... More

The room didn't live up to the description or photos from the website. the bathroom was very disappointing, small and out of date,the cushions were thread-bare and the bed linen dirty. The wifi didn't work in our room. No complementary water etc.We expected a boutique hotel for the money we paid. If it wasn't for the helpfulness/friendlyness of the staff,... More

In a nice area, close to restaurants and pubs, and round the corner from Vondelpark, which is lovely. Reasonable walking distance from the museum district (we walked everywhere as we didnt feel we needed to use the trams) and just round the corner from a tram stop, so either way, easy to get to places. The staff were friendly and... More

Not very friendly people on the desk. Dificoult access to the building and the rooms. The beds are really old and the decoration is terrible and cheap. Very dark rooms you can barely see in the night with only one light. There is not a wardrobe. The toilet is very old too but clean at least. I dont think i... More

We book this hotel for our first wedding anniversary. What a disaster! Box dark room, with dirty walls, dodgy old bed, dirty window and curtains, damaged furnitures, that was what we got… Not exactly what they show on website advertising. We asked for different room and we were offered the similar room in different building, but without wifi (which supposed... More
