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

Stayed in the hotel for one night for a festival in the city with a friend; asked for an early-check-in upon arrival at 12:15pm, but nothing was communicated with the Front Office employees. Nevertheless, we could check-in 15-20min. after arrival. Rooms are lovely, spacious enough for 2 people for one night. But some features in the room are very unhandy:... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night and we had such a wonderful stay. We had read some of the reviews about the student staff not being quite up to scratch, but i have to say that we experienced none of that. Really attentive and accommodating service from start to finish. We had a lovely room with high... More

Loved our stay here. It is a beautiful hotel, with lovely grounds and public spaces, great big room with a proper separate toilet/shower and bath (we do not like this new tendency of all open plan business in new hotels). It is well located, not super-central, but good enough. It is quiet and well run. Bed is comfy and beddings... More

I stayed there for my meeting at RAI. I phoned them before to extend my stay, it was confirmed. When i arrived there, it took them half an hour to tell them that i am staying 3+1 day. They put my extension on another reservation. The atmosphere of the hotel is great anyways. However the curtains in my room was... More

The College Hotel is a breeding ground for students that are looking to start a career in the hotel industry. This being said they are eager to please and will go above and beyond. Our stay was an interesting one as our room light would come on in the middle of the night and when I would turn it off... More

This is a great funky hotel in a great location. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings, comfortable bed and good bathroom. The building is beautiful having been converted from an old school to a hotel - aesthetically the architectural detail is superb. The location is excellent - we rented bikes from the hotel, which were in good condition and... More

Being a regular business traveller to Amsterdam I have stayed quite a number of nights in this hotel. The hotel is in the local business community getting a bad reputation for service. As a hotel school it employs (often very young) students that are left on their own without adequate supervision and guidance. As a result service is non-existent, despite... More

Just spent 2 nights here, rooms were nice, bathroom was spectacular. Situated in a really nice part of town. Friendly service, check in desk staff very helpful. Would definitely recommend. Think I would prefer card keys to the traditional keys. Managed to leave my key in the door. Fortunately somebody took it and handed it into reception. Don't think they... More

Stayed at the College Hotel after advice from a business associate and must admit my enthusiasm was somewhat reluctant when I heard it was an old school run by students... My goodness, how wrong could I be? This is one of the most remeberable stays I have had in any hotel and look forward to my next travel to Amsterdam.... More
