The Filosoof is just grubby, dirty and nasty. The room we occupied was minute. It would have been small for a single never mind a twin room. The walls carpets and paintwork were filthy. There was even the residue of someone's nose on the wall. The bathroom was a joke. It appeared to be a cupboard! The area that you... More

Safe and charming neighbourhood. Clean and comfortable hotel with a lovely garden. Overpriced breakfast, but other than that the hotel was perfect. Tram is so close, and can walk to almost every attraction in town.

Our trip to Amsterdam had to include a stay at the Hotel Filosoof to satisfy our 13 year old daughter's fascination with the John Greene book, "the fault in our stars." She was not disappointed even if we were a little. The location is fabulous just by Vondelpark and it is a quiet beautiful neighbourhood. The hotel to be honest... More

Easy access to airport via tram outside and train. Easy walking distance through the park to the main Art Galleries and to canal with boat trips. The tram... More

while a little further out of the city, there is a tram stop that takes you right to the centre about 2 minutes away from the hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It was a quiet location and right next to Vondelpark. We were there for new year so it... More
