Arrived earlier than check-in time but even so our room was ready in less than 30 minutes and we even got an upgrade! wonderful room (more like a small apartment!),big windows, with vintage artistic references (a small museum of details to discover!) small detail: light passes through windows at night in this particular room, so if you need complete darkness...

The Lloyd hotel is near the easyern part of the city. Nit the most touristy area, but close enough to be there fast, and far enough to benefit of some peace and quiet. Bar ooen until 1 AM and very helpful staff. The Pata Negra restaurant, a spanish one is great! And right across the street.

Unique hotel with nicely designed rooms in a building full of history and culture. Actually, I did not myself to this hotel but since I live in the neighboorhoud, often friends and family are staying at this hotel. It is a one of a kind hotel, good for business and solo travellars, and couples. I think it is not recommendable... More

We decided to go to Amsterdam at the last minute for the bank holiday weekend. We looked at different hotels and chose The Lloyd Hotel based upon price, availability, and that its dog friendly. Plus, the Lloyd Hotel was an old prison turned into an art project and 1-5 star hotel - who wouldn't want to stay there? Location: The... More

I just spent 3 nights at this hotel. They try to convince everyone that the design is a form of art and very trendy. In fact this is a converted former prison that still echoes from the 1920's decor including the glazed tiles and dark and moody corridors. This place used to be a youth prison and it still looks...

Dear Mark, So sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay! The Lloyd Hotel is a hotel in which we have many different elements of design throughout the ages, from the 1920's onward. The building itself was originally designed as a hotel to temporarily house immigants travelling to South America with the shipping company Royal Dutch Lloyd. I... More

If you are looking for a normal hotel don't book this hotel. But if you have an open mind, want to experience something unique and be surprised around every corner this is the hotel for you. I was given the Masterpeace exhibition room which was unlike any hotel room I have ever seen! I was also given a free upgrade... More
