What a beautiful hotel. My family and I loved our stay. We started with a tour with the super kind Sven Pinedo (which was made possible by Sophie Kuipers who encouraged us with her presentations about this school when she was in Curacao, where we live). There we learned and saw what the student life is like, what the student... More

Great location. 10 minutes by tramway (Line 13) to downtown (Stop at the Dam). Excellent services from the front office, restaurant, room, etc... Very friendly. The students who are working (such as internship), are doing a great job. They care about customer. Of course they are learning and sometimes it takes a bit longer time but they are doing their...

Stayed in the Hilton room for 2 nights. Room was spacious. Staff at front desk were helpful, took a bit longer with students but nothing too delayed. Breakfast was good. Adequate selection. A 15min ish tram ride away from Amsterdam Centraal station but doable journey as trams are frequent. I would definately recommend this good value for money hotel to... More

We stayed at the Skotel in May on two separate occasions with great success. The rooms were large, modern, clean and comfortable. The staff were kind and accommodating. They are students so it takes a few minutes longer but the supervisors are there to make sure it you don't wait more than a couple of minutes. Breakfast was extensive and... More

Just had a great dinner with my family in the restaurant of Skotel Amsterdam. They recently implemented a new concept where you do not know what you get, you can only choose whether you receive a "standard" menu or an "adventurous" one. I am a picky eater but the wine was flowing and I wanted to break some personal boundaries... More

First time in a long time we chose to stay in a hotel. We had some bad experiences in other places and were sceptical about staying in a hotel. What a surprise to stay at Skotel. From the first minute to the moment we left we were totally satisfied. We totally recommend this place. Literally Litteraly

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

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
