I slept one night at this hotel, which I selected following a suggestion from a friend of mine who lives in Amsterdam. She promised something pitoresque.... The hotel itself is average. You get what you pay for. However, my experience as a guest was rather unpleasent. I checked in in the afternoon then went out for dinner and, when returned... More

You've never stayed anywhere like the Lloyd hotel before. It's a hotel, it's an installation art gallery, it's a slightly creepy piece of history. My girlfriend and I stayed for a few nights, and loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was good, and the atmosphere was unique. The only thing we missed, being predictable Brits, was... More

The history of the hotel is staggering and the design involved in turning it into a hotel has been done with great thought to the original building. Staff are all lovely; friendly and helpful. The rooms are quirky but in a good way. We only stayed bed and breakfast, but it was excellent. Don't often see Bloody Mary's on the... More

First impression of this hotel is very good, it's a beautiful building and we were given a free upgrade to a higher star room on arrival which was a lovely surprise. Our room was in the basement although was very light, the bed was the comfiest bed I think ive ever slept on, room was spotless. Only issue we had... More

The Lloyd Hotel is for travellers looking for an innovative overnight experience. Due to the variety of room types (and rooms within each category) you can always count on a pleasant surprise. The hotel is housed in a seriously historic building off the beaten tourist track. The building is sensitively renovated so that its origins are still visible. It is... More

We stayed in 1* room for 2 days. To improve is cleanliness of the room. The room had a smell of the cigarettes that maintained and umfortunately disturbed a little. But breakfast is simply delicious and the service was really helpful. In general, we are happy with our stay.

We have a strict non smoking policy, but unfortunately not all guests follow our policy! Hopefully we will see you again soon in the near future. Kind regards, The Lloyd Hotel... More

The hotel is nice, but the room is a bit too back to basic. Concrete floors with a few mats on the floor just doesn't make it in 2015 anymore... Though it is clean, there is no kind of luxury one might expect for the price you're paying... Won't stay here again.

I am so sorry to read that we weren't able to find the right room for you. All our rooms are different and we pride ourselves in offering our guests as many options as it takes to find the right match. We clearly should have accommodated you in one of our rooms with wooden flooring or wall to wall carpeting.... More

Well, I'm so glad i read the reviews on here because I chose our hotel for our two night trip based on this. We were upgraded from 2 star to 3 star upon arrival as it was a belated honeymoon. Staff were polite, happy, welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We were brought a bowl of fruit within half... More

This is a great place to stay. It is in a modern neighborhood across the street from a grocery store, bar and restaurant. The hotel restaurant is fantastic and staff are great too. There are 2 tram lines to the center of town. One goes direct from Centraal Station and the other loops around the city to all tourist and... More

After checking out the usual accommodations of numerous hotels, the facilities seemed all the same. So Lloyd Hotel was a welcome change with its unique feel the moment you stepped inside the door. It proudly displays its historical significance, including various memorabilias and photographs as part of its decorations. A haven for artists, I appreciated the different artworks and also...
