At the far-end of the famous P.C. Hooftstraat - famous for upscale shopping - near the Vondelpark is this comfortable and affordable hotel. Clean and unassuming facade doesn't prepare you for the really very nice garden and view in the back Very efficient check-in in a spacious lobby. I was especailly taken by the equanimity of the friendly man who... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel after reading the reviews. We arrived early and the receptionist let us leave our bags to come back. Then we were given a larger room than we had booked, spotless and bright. It was on the 4th floor and the lift only reaches the third but just a small staircase to our floor.... More

I was looking for a nice boutique hotel in Amsterdam that wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg. I was so delighted to discover the Hotel Garden City. It's located on a quiet dead end street with high end shops ( Chanel, Hermes, Dior.....) and to the rear is the lovely Vondel Park. It's within walking distance... More

Hotel is situated in nice place, close to National Museum and Van Gogh Museum. I stayed in this hotel for one night only. Well, maybe something good now: 1) I got was a small single room, but it was cozy and with very comfortable bed with fresh linen. 2) Bathroom was also clean and with good quality soap. 3) Breakfast......

This hotel is not gay friendly. This is in a country where gay marriage is legal. My partner and I travelling with a friend booked two rooms. When we arrived the male receptionist seemed confused that we only wanted one bed in one of the rooms! Once this issue had been sorted he then offered us two 'garden' rooms which... More

As for there est the service is very poor, staff unkind and cleanliness not excellent. Examples: one evening coming back from a long day of work and business dinner we found the shower towel inside the... More

Very poor hotel looks like an old hospital. Rooms are very small, no air conditioner. Average breakfast. We found somebodies underwear in safety box in our room. Staff are friendly but I won't recommend this hotel.

We knew it wasnt the Hilton but we did expect it to clean and free from livestock. The bed linen and towels were fresh everyday but the maid obviously hadnt read the instrtuction manual for the vacuum cleaner or the duster. The location with respect to getting around was good but the street outside leading into Vondel park was noisey... More

We spent five days here. Yes the room was small but we were not in it that much. The decor was nice - grey and white bed linen. The maid came in daily to sort the beds, empty bin and provide clean towels. A cupboard door fell off when we arrived and a plug socket came off the wall when... More

The hotel looks better online than it looks in real time, very basic accommodation. Breakfast was nice, but bed / mattress was narrower than normal single bed.. Saying that the hotel was very busy, maybe because it was slighty cheaper than most closer too the town. Overall it was a little rough around the edges
