What can I say about this hotel but avoid it at ALL costs unless you are into bed bugs and dead rodents! This was our 1st ever trip to Holland (2 nights) to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. On arrival the receptionist didn't even know which room was available to put us in even though we had booked from the... More

Hotel City Garden is located on Amsterdam's chicest shopping street, flanked by the beautiful Vondelpark. Unfortunately, that's where the glamour ends. The hotel rooms are tiny - you actually feel like you're in a cabin on a boat. The bathrooms are also tiny. It's fine if you want to plonk down your luggage and make a hasty exit. Don't count...

We stayed in this hotel only for 2 nights. The position is perfect, just outside the city centre. In 2 min you can reach the centre, where the famous "I amsterdam" sign is! Really silent at night! Clean, comfortable bed, good breakfast. And the check-out is until 11!! :)

we spend the worst nights from our European trip. First we taught that they were water bed, but in reality their mattresses are so old that it feel like a bad quality waterbed... And for the first time in my adult life, I felt out of the bed! For the front desk, if you are willing to speak to a... More

Fabulous location next to the beautiful park and in walking distance of the majority of the central attractions. Room clean, fresh towels everyday and a brilliant shower. We happened to stay in a heat wave so it was very hot at night but the fan helped. Some noise from late night cyclists on the street but nothing terrible. And as... More

What a wonderful small hotel! A stone's throw from Vondel Park, the location is excellent. We had a quad room in the back overlooking the garden. We had our windows wide open and could hear birds in the morning. The room itself was a bit cramped, but we didn't mind. Only real negative was the toilet which one had to... More

After reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, I was a bit apprehensive about staying here, however after staying here for a long weekend, I was quite pleased with the place and would stay again. Our room and bathroom (room 62 on ground floor) were nice, I didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that. The only... More

Where do I start ????? This was the only hotel left in Amsterdam that had vacancies at the last minute and I now see why !!!! I was travelling with my elderly father and the holiday was decided upon at the last minute and was a bit of a treat for us both. The hotel decidedly WAS NOT..... Upon arrival... More
