“Great family run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We recently stayed at The Alp for 4 nights. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone requiring a boutique hotel close to the City centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was by far the best continental breakfast we have ever had in Europe. The hotel was approximately 15 minutes walk to the Dam and there is a tram stop directly outside the hotel. We booked a small room with an ensuite and that's exactly what it was, very small but the room was serviced daily and was extremely clean. We complained that the window would not close on our first night and the window was immediately fixed. Try this hotel, you will be very pleasantly surprised. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Great atmosphere and rooms were descent. The location was very close to the center, 10 min. walk. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. When they cleaned our room the were leaving two apples, two chocolates and 2 small bottles of water.

Located 10 minutes from the main railway station, the hotel is easily reached by tram 13 which stops outstanding. A small, stylish hotel with the warmest of welcomes and lots of nice touches including a drink on arrival and free tea coffee and fresh fruit for guests throughout the day. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast selection is exceptional.

Room Tip: Located on a busy street - back rooms are quieter.

Small hotel, small rooms but adequate, large balcony over looking the rear courtyard, reception staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was very good, all fresh and tasty, also there was a good choice.
It's easy to get to, tram 13 stops right outside, it only took 45 minutes from Schiphol to being checked in, we were allowed to check in 3 hours early which was helpful.
But loses 2 stars from us, I particularly booked a room that provided a kettle and coffee making facilities, there was not a kettle or any hot drink facilities.
Overall I would recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

A typical tall Amsterdam house with steep staircase. All rooms well equipped, tea, coffee making facilities, very clean en-suite and room. Good breakfast, decent bread and good choice, plenty of fresh fruit available. Staff very helpful and friendly, always greeted us warmly and asked if we would like a drink on returning from our sight seeing. Tram outside door. Buy a 7.50 euro 24 hour ticket from reception and travel all around the city. Handy for the Rijksmuseum, main grachten, Anne Frank house etc. Would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are bothered by tram noise, ask for a room at the back and don't stay if you can't ma...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Was in Amsterdam last weekend with a group of friends staying at the Alp Hotel. Arrived late Friday evening and the staff were great and provided us with complimentary drinks while we got all the rooms sorted out. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk to Dam Square however in an area I was familiar with and there are plenty of bars and restaurants around. The hotel is small but modern and very clean. We had 2 double rooms and one triple, the triple was a little cramped but ok for a couple of nights. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, not much space for cases or clothes but ok. Most have a small balcony, all ensuite, towels, hairdryer and safe. Breakfast is traditionally Dutch, cheese, bread, cold meat, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, tea and coffee. Fruit, tea and coffee are all available free all day at reception. The breakfast area turns into the Hotel Bar in the evenings and a good meeting place. The bar is open until 3am however the night security guard who serves in the bar late at night can be a little off putting, not the most pleasant, chatty or hospitable however this did not spoil our stay. This is a nice hotel however it is a little bit away from the centre of Amsterdam, tram stop is on the doorstep and the staff are great.

Room Tip: Double rooms are great, to make it a triple they add another bed so can be a little cramped, balconi...

had a great stay at this hotel. a bit further out from the centre but tram stop right outside the hotel. hotel staff very very friendly and helpful. all tea and coffee included which is a great touch. our room was very small but suitable enough as we were not spending much time in it. clean, had shower and TV all that was needed. only real problem with this hotel is the steep stairs. was out of breath very time walking up them, but this is no fault of the hotel. would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends

Room Tip: maybe the rooms with the balconies are a bit bigger
