I don't know what to say about this place. I just figure it must appeal to a lot of people, it's like a converted building, with giant ceilings, weirdly shaped rooms, a massive restaurant on the ground floor, awkward decoration throughout the floors. My floor had chairs outside, dolls, lockers, random books on random bookshelves. My room had an entrance... More

The friendly staff allowed us to check in early and gave us an upgrade. The room was clean, comfortable and unconventional, with this yellow bathroom 'pod' in the middle and the other furniture arranged around it. Amsterdam Centraal was only a five minute tram-ride away. I would happily stay here again and highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel with all the facilties and history it has to offer, not to mention the great design is seriously cool but the rooms are under whelming and over priced. Even in high toruist season €100+ euros for a below average (3 star) room when the hotel is located so far outside the city center is not okay. We were... More

M y husband and I spent 5 nights at the LLoyd. On arrival to the hotel we had a mixture of feelings.

This building is amazing, was great design and history (little museum inside) the restaurant and the outside area is great for brunch. Food and drinks are good. Rooms are unique and basic design with an open non door to shower. Great beds and pillows, yes, you will sleep like a baby. Neighborhood is beautiful outside the crazy city but close... More

This is the worst experience I have ever had. The staff is unprofessional, rude and makes mistake after mistake. You can see they are not trained and uninterested. Rooms are absurd, dusty, no soap, no airco, toilet with folding screen for €200!

Hotel is in beautiful old building, but rooms are nice and modern style, breakfast is really good. Across to the street there are food market, pharmacy, grossery store, some bars, fast food, caffe... Tram stop is 5 min walking, and you can get to the Central by tram #23,after 3 stops.

Once I came there and I feel I had a princess room ! I really like the decoration of the hotel, the sapce in rooms, restaurant. The food is really good. And if you want to stay there to work, it is very easy to find a nice place to be. Please at the entrance are very helpful.

Staying in Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)

Neighborhood Profile
Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)
A visit to Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands presents the opportunity to marvel at its many modern architectural masterpieces like the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam and the beguiling Python Bridge while taking in its scenic waterfront with its trendy assortment of cafés, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Here in this post-industrial (though in some parts still very much presently industrial) neighborhood, you’ll find a smart selection of cool galleries and shops as well as the kid-friendly Science Center NEMO and the National Maritime Museum.
