Stayed here for few days. Rooms have their own character as they themed them with a philosopher. One of the rooms we had is too narrow. I thought the beds are a bit narrow than usual single beds as I feel like I'm going to fall everytime I turn! Television still the old fashioned box type but with more English... More

You get what you pay for with this place - I read that it was modern and stylish but it's actually outdated and smells like old fags. The rooms are interesting (if you like badly-painted on headboards and mistranslated quotes) but small and the wet room/bathroom ok, but not ideal as there's nowhere to put your things without them getting...

After reeding comments on this Hotel I was apprehensive but on arrival we had a friendly welcome and a beautiful room(15) looking over the park, lots of clean towels bath in the small bathroom but it's not like your spending the day in there. Rooms cleaned daily and a comfortable bed and pillows to die for after walking round the... More

The location is very central and on the tram 1 line, a few minutes from vondelpark and museumplein. I had a deluxe room which was ok but still relatively small, with no window in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet not worth the price of the breakfast. Overall experience was ok but I would expect more considering the price.

We stayed at the Hotel de Filosoof for a night while in Amsterdam mainly due to the fact that it was the hotel from John Green's The Fault in our Stars. The staff was extremely friendly and gave us some TFIOS maps and bookmarks. The hotel itself is nice, a little dated but clean. The room was tiny but it's... More

Well it was an unpleasant stay! very small rooms knowing that they looked way bigger on the booking website. Poor room service... far from the city and extremly expensive for such an experience. U get ur towels by force. No soaps, no shampoo. Heaters went off at night...

I was attracted by the idea of having each room dedicated to a philosopher, so I decided to book myself in this lovely hotel during trip to Amsterdam!! I loved every minute I spent I. This place, especially for the wonderful service that I received by the amazing staff of the hotel, who went well beyond their duty to make... More

Following a lovely stay in a Sandton hotel in Brussels the Filosoof hotel came as a bit of a shock. Our room was across the road from the main hotel. Had to borrow a fan as the air was stale. Safety deposit box did not work. Very drab room in need of an makeover. En suite bathroom tiny.
