The only advantage of this hotel is that it is well placed to get to with bus from airport and close to museums Plein. 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

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. The woman in reception was ok and pretty helpful. We got our room keys and was on the second floor. We opened the door and in front of us was a double bed and a walk way down one side and bottom of the bed which we had to duck down because of... More

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!! :)
