The building, a former school and monastery, has been meticulously transformed into an upmarket hotel. It's a work of art. Some of the staff are trainees, but don't let that put you off. They may be young, but they have great smiles and want to provide great service. It's popular with locals and the bar / reception areas have a... More

I was here for a conference with about 50 participants. The hotel staff was very friendly, but most of them are students / learning the hotel profession. The architectural design of the building is very nice; the garden is also nice to relax a bit ; we had a very nice barbecue dinner. My room was also ok, quite big;... More

This hotel has the potential to be much better. And they try very hard and are quite apologetic. That doesn't take care of the deficiencies, however. This is a learning hotel internship for students of the hospitality industry. I believe the facility used to be boarding school. Architecturally, it is quite interesting. It is not completely handicap accessible. There are... More

I stay here every visit - partly because it is a great location, beautiful exterior, best beds, gorgeous inside, lovely rooms but also because I like the fact that it is a training school for young hoteliers. On your first visit you will be thrown by the darkness of the rooms.........that is if you have been able to get the... More

I wasn't going to review this hotel, but when I got home, I realized that by not reviewing The College Hotel, I was doing the hotel, TripAdvisor and the people who want an honest opinion, all a great injustice. I understand the hotel is a "teaching" hotel and that there may be a few issues due to the students/interns not... More

I would like to stress the great attention we got at the hotel. From orientation where to go and what to do, at the reception , and over the room service and attention from the staff. The location is 25 minutes walking from the center, and few minutes by tram. Near to the art museums. Nice and comfortable rooms, and... More

This could be a good hotel if it weren't for some ridiculous design features where form has taken over function to new levels. Evidence the reading lights with switches so high you have to get out of bed to activate them. The other light switches are ridiculous by design and frustrating by their placement. The coffee machine is in a... More

We stayed here in June 14 for 3 nights. It is well located for a short walk to the museums and a pleasant longer one to the centre, Well connected by tram to Jordaan which is a lovely area. The hotel is smart, the décor throughout is dark, so some of the rooms can be difficult if you need a... More
