Staff and students of this hotel school were professional and personable. Location a little out of the way but the tram stop outside takes you directly to Dam Square and Centraal Station so right to the heart of the action. Breakfast at Skotel was also am excellent experience. Similar room at the Ramada which is right behind Skotel was 360... More

The students are very kind,but the breakfast was very slow. We waited for 20' for some boiled water for the tea, and the boiled eggs(because you... More

I stayed at Skotel over the Easter long weekend with my girlfriend. It's an interesting choice for Amsterdam. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Very nice rooms (each room is made up as a replica of the style of famous hotels and hotel chains from around the world - ours was typical of the Good Hotel in San Francisco, for instance).... More

We were greeted by very mature students, who had a very professional attitude. We booked to have an evening meal, which was exceptional.

One word: Great! Very attentive staff. The asked me if I needed help with the luggage and they offered to show me the room. The great thing of this hotel is they have a lot of different hotel chain rooms. For example they have rooms from Hampshire, Okura and Novotel. I chose the Four Points by Sheraton room (#201). The...

This hotel is run by students and they do very well!! The rooms are very comfortable, and the price is more than correct. The breakfast is included and is great. The hotel is not in the center of town but with the tramway (stops in front of the hotel) it only takes 10 minutes to get there.

I will keep this short, The Skotel is AMAZING, even for a perfectionist like me, that likes to find errors. It really is worth the money paid aboce and beyond. From the reception, to the room to the breakfast - the ENTIRE stay was absolutely fantastic.

The reception at the hotel was very friendly, excellent service was provided. Our room was modern, very clean and had a certain class we really enjoyed. On top of it we were happily surprised by the variety in breakfast. We'll definitely be back!
