The College hotel is in the museum district of Amsterdam. It's a lovely looking boutique hotel, the decor is great and the atmosphere is good. The location is not as central as I would have liked and is a fairly long walk into the center of the city. The staff were very helpful. I arrived at 11am and left my... More

With very high ceiling, spaceous rooms, cosy lounge and friendly young staff (mostly students). Good quality for the price. Lots of great small restaurants, and some of the main museums, nearby. Trams 5 and 24 from the central railway station stop right next to the hotel.

Eating out in Amsterdam? Want a lovely meal in a garden? Go somewhere else...the last time I ate in the lovely garden at The College Hotel, meeting a girlfriend for a lovely lunch, we thought, the service was so bad it took 3 hours. We waited over an hour for food, having ordered salads. No-one came to explain, or apologise,... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel for four nights as a 25th anniversary celebration and we really enjoyed our time there. The hotel is in a beautiful building and is very conveniently located for the main museums, the Concertgebouw and most places. The 'superior' room was a decent size and stylishly furnished, though it was exceptionally dark in the evenings... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was a great stay. The staff was attentive and helpful with many requests. A gentleman named Kuhn was always fantastic and solved some small issues for me initially. My only complaints are 1) the rooms are really, really dark. They're just not lit well and 2) There are virtually no... More

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel. The area is beautiful, an elegant quarter 5 minutes off the Rejiksmuseum. The stunning facade is there waiting for you, beautifully lightened at night so the website promise is kept. The inside is weird as what is left of the historical building is nice but the overall restyling is odd. Too dark, style... More

The College Hotel is a beautiful hotel. When you walk in you are taken with the design from both the outside and the inside. That said, the staff is a little inexperienced and therefore the service isn't the best. The rooms are very nice and the deep soaking tubs are really amazing. But the rooms are dark - so if... More

The hotel seems a little out of town but this is actually in a really cool location; very near the main museums, away from the touristy centre and in the young, professional area of town so lots of great cafes, bars and nightlife. Hotel staff are trainees so they are a little less confident than you would expect of staff... More
