I booked a room for my boyfriend and I to stay in for 3 nights. I was pleased with myself for actually picking Volkshotel. (I have a bad track record for choosing accommodation!) It was cool and up to date. We were pleased with our 'sir standard' room, bed was comfy and the room was spotless. The glass partition didn't... More

My first trip to amsterdam and the hotel was booked by my now no longer friend who found it on a random site. I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't seen pics before the trip - but I wasn't disappointed! I stayed in room 529, which had a great view of the banking district, a huge shower and... More

Volkshotel lives up to its very cool image. If you like non standard accomodatio and you are willing to spend a bit of extra cash to experience it, Vilkshotel is a great choice. Super friendly staff has all the infos you'll need to make your stay in Amsterdam a unique one. Rooms are surprising but.they offer all you need including... More

Firstly, the decor of the hotel is very different than the usual hotels...it is very trendy, modern, cool. The rooms are of the same architecture and decor, and it is a whole experience on its own. Rooms of four are also decorated in a very cool way, as they are bunk-beds, but with a twist. You have to see it... More

From the check in to the housekeeping staff, everyone is friendly and relaxed. I definitely recommend this place if you spend a few nights in Amsterdam. The food served in Canvas is very tasty and affordable. I stayed in in room 502 (White Bike room) which has a nice bath tub next to the window and a beamer with a... More

Absolutely loved this accommodation. Amazing hotel. Really funky and fresh. Amazing location. Amazing helpful staff. Amazing terrace restaurant for just a few drinks or a great meal. Really clean, functional rooms with an amazing view. Couldn't fault the hotel at all.

Hi John, We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! About the room design: all glass bathroom walls will be covered soon. When it comes to the non tiled floor and concrete ceiling: both are part of the design, so we're not planning on 'finishing' them :) We hope to see you again in the future! More

I am writing a few hours after having left the hotel. It has been a great experience, I finally found something different and original. I stayed here with my father for 4 days and 4 nights. The hotel is 10/15 minutes by bike from the centre or a few stops if you prefer to use the underground, just in front... More

I found this newly opened hotel on a search for unique accommodation. It is a little out of the central ring (three subway stops) but I preferred being away from all of the tourists anyway. The lobby, bars, dining and rooftop are all great social spots. Cool design and comfortable. The rooms are quirky, and while some points are great... More
