“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I booked this hotel at the last minute and, although it's not very close to the centre, it was a bargain. The staff were wonderful and the room was far more than I had expected for the price. Hotel Central Park is right next to a not-very-central-park, but the park itself is nice, and although it took more than an hour to walk to the hotel from the train station, it was a good way to see some of the city. There's also a tram from nearby into the centre that runs regularly.

Room Tip: The guy across the road at the front of the hotel has an awesome library for a front room!

Central Park Hotel. Clean and good value, breakfast also included in my stay.

The Staff all spoke great English, were very friendly and extremely helpful.

On the outskirts of Amsterdam but next to the main park and only a short tram or bus ride from the centre - would recommend it as a place to stay and if I return to Amsterdam..............I'll be going back.

It's only a 3* hotel, but with 5* service.

This hotel is located outside of Amsterdam city centre and is a short tram ride away from the sights. Our room was a good size and was impeccably clean. In no way luxurious, but perfect for a short city break.
There are many gorgeous bars and restaurants around this area, as it seems to be an affluent suburb. You will also find lots of little specialist stores selling various things and nice supermarkets. The park runs behind the hotel and if you have the time you can join the locals and walk, cycle or rollerblade into the city. Our room overlooked the lake. The scenery is beautiful and although it is cold, it is worth it!
The staff were very helpful on the front desk and helped us with directions and attractions. Thankfully, there is free wifi in the rooms as well.
Before you stay here, make sure that you are aware that this hotel is not in the city centre. We got a taxi when we first arrived, which cost us an eye watering 35 Euros. If you aren't sure when you get to Central Station, take the number two tram and get off when you get to Thomas Cook. Walk until you see the Timothy Oulton store and turn right. You will see the park when you have turned, on your left. The hotel is on the street on the second right.

PLUS: Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The receptionist explained to us the main attractions in Amsterdam and how to get there as this was our first time in the city. The receptionist was also helpful in printing some e-tickets we booked online. Location was good. Walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, and Vondelpark. Also, it was quiet as located in the residential area.

MINUS: Room was too small for two persons. The aircon was a bit noisy. No heating in the bathroom. The bed was too soft and uncomfortable for people with back problem.

This is a good cosy hotel. Well situated. Within walking distance through a lovely park from central Amsterdam Would recommend it as value for money. Rooms are small but quaint. Breakfast is expensive but there is a great bakery around the corner. About 15 mins walk.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights on a group tour. The location is rather remote, it takes about 20 minutes to reach the Dam square by tram, though the tram stop is relatively near and the line is direct. If you are not in a hurry you can also take a stroll in a beautiful Vondelpark, takes about 25 minutes to cross it. There are several restaurants nearby, but nothing close to the liveliness of the city center.

The hotel is apparently repurposed from an apartment building, and rooms are of varying size and quality. Mine was #1 at the ground floor, it was small and had window opening to the driveway. That was OK for me, but the bathroom was so tiny that is was uncomfortable; to reach the tiny shower cabin one had to literally climb over the toilet, and I imagined someone bigger and heavier than I would have a problem doing so. On the upside the room was clean and tidy, had nice flatscreen TV, the bed was good and it was quiet at night.

The WiFi worked perfectly, no complaint about that.

Breakfast was OK, but no hot food: ham, cheese, eggs, toasts, coffee.

Overall, I'd say the following: if you have a reason to stay in this part of Amsterdam and you are traveling alone on business, the hotel is good. Otherwise, I'd choose something more centrally located.

Room Tip: Rooms at upper floors must have a view of the Vondelpark and should be better than the one at ground...

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and arranged for a room on the top floor [4th].
A clean basic room with very little storage space. really comfortable 5ft bed and good
air con heating. Bathroom very compact but a very good sized walk in shower. Cleanliness
good but the carpet needed attention, also the reception carpet. Needed replacement bulbs in bedroom and bathroom, and the kettle lid was broken .
We booked in advance to have a continental breakfast which was very acceptable.
A short walk to the tram stop and a No 2 of the highly efficient trams system took you to the centre and Amsterdam Central station.
The hotel is almost adjacent to the huge Vondelpark which allows you to stroll towards Leidseplein and the centre. Spring and summer here must be superb.
All in all a good hotel and sound value.
