4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I was totally in shock when I first arrived. I did not expect to be staying somewhere so unique. I couldn't believe it was an old prison and someone told me it was actually a cultural landmark so what a privilege. The look was pretty special, reminds me of american horror story. I think we were in a standard room.... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Lloyd Hotel in the middle of January (which is a very cold month to visit Amsterdam). We loved this hotel for many different reasons perfect location, cleanliness, and a cool atmosphere. The location was just far enough out of the touristy center city but close enough to hop on a bus to Amsterdam Central... More

I stayed with my girlfriend (or soon-to-be girlfriend) in a 5 star room in Lloyd Hotel. The room was UNIQUE, with bathtub in the room, a super comfortable bed and even a swing! We didn´t have breakfast or dinner there so our only interaction was with two girls and one guy at reception. The three of them were extremely nice... More

The Lloyd Hotyel is an unusual and excellent hotel housed in a former prison by Amsterdam docks... Perhaps this sounds like something to put people off, but in fact the building is an architectual and historical gem... every room is unique and well designed and they range form one to five stars in terms of pricing and amenities. The location... More

This hotel has bags of character. Its history reflects many major phases of 20th-century European history. It is not over-restored, so that this history is still evident. The relaxed style, while retaining high service standards, is notable.

I made a last minute booking, after a good friend suggested this hotel. Really nice hotel. I got there early and managed to secure a room on the first floor facing the canal. Nice view of the canal despite the grey early winter skies. The front desk and cafe staff are all friendly and hospitable. The internal deco is unique... More

Beautiful building with well appointed rooms and comfortable beds. But the best thing was the atmosphere in the lounge area - very friendly and pleasant place to relax in an evening or if it's wet outside. If I owned a hotel then this would be my model - private rooms and friendly public areas.
