The two women who worked on reception were lovely and very helpful. The garden and communal areas were nice, and room 16 was fine. The rooms at the front seem more spacious. However, our stay didn't start well as the man who worked the late shift was very unwelcoming and grumpy. We were given room 10 (Zen Room) which was... More

Nicely located basic hotel, which is of good value. Peaceful and quiet location by Vondelpark. The only downside it that the wi-fi connection was non-existent in the main building, so I had to change my room to the annex on the other side of the street. There's a small bar in the main building, the rooms are small and basic,... More

Stayed in this hotel as a special treat to my daughter who is a big fan of The Fault in Our Stars. Despite numerous changes in dates, the staff was always willing to accommodate. We travelled to another city before checking in and they were kind enough to allow us to leave our luggage. The "stars" room is a small,... More

Stayed one night with 2 friends while exploring Amsterdam. The check-in took a while which is not a good sign in any hotel. The lobby and common areas are outdated and run down but the back yard is good for working and smoking. Our room was in another building across the street. The room was very small, the beds were...

Main building room I stayed in had very comfy bed, sparkling clean bathroom and the quiet location that the whole hotel enjoys near the Vondel park. The high traffic public areas, in particular the narrow stairs and corridors need a lick of paint and new carpets though. I gather from colleagues that the suites in the buildings opposite were very... More

I were here with my boyfriend for four nights, so the good things are that the hotel has a nice location and the staff is really helpful and friendly, however on our first night the security box did not worked out, the next day we had to ask for towels and also somehow the fire alarm woke up us around...

Came for 4 nights for a friends birthday. A triple room for 3 people was plenty size wise. Nice hotel and great location only 15 minutes walk from anywhere. Price of stay was superb. Would recommend anyone having a short stay.

The Sandton Hotel de Filosoof offers good quality accommodation at very reasonable prices in a convenient location in the city of Amsterdam - convenient in the sense that while it is well served by city tram No1, which runs past the end of Anna van den Vondelstraat and takes you to the city centre and Centraal Staion, the hotel is...

I experienced problems with my booking (due to my fault) and the receptionist Gulia (I hope I spelled it correctly and apologize if I didn't) was really helpful in helping me re-book as well as find another hotel for the night for which they were fully booked. I really appreciate all the help and the professional manner in which she... More

We were looking for a reasonable hotel near the center of Amsterdam. The Filosoof is located near the Vondelpark and close to the museums. Lot's of excellent restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very good. Especially the Manager , Ivo and Gulja. Gulja even managed to track down a lost credit card!!! We had a room in a house... More
