“Great for a one night stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011 via mobile

We just finished our one night stay at this hotel and we enjoyed it very much. Conveniently located right in front of the tram platform in which a 24 hour tram pass allowed us to explore the city easily. Room was very clean but more pillows would have been more comfortable. No idea how to use the soap dispensers and was too inconvenient to ask, esp at the actual moment. No blowdryer and frankly not many tools to offer but good for one night stay! Front staff was very delightful.

We stayed in the Conscious hotel Vondelpark for 3 nights in May and I must say this is one of the best hotels in Amsterdam! Located right next to the Vondelpark (the weather was great!), excellent organic breakfast and great staff! For an extra €10 we got the room on the topfloor which had a spacious roofterrace! The hotel is located in a quiet area, but there are still many nice restaurants and bars around. The last day we decided to rent an electric scooter at the hotel and we regret that we didn't do that sooner! A scooter (or bike but we are lazy) really is the best way to get around in Amsterdam, even though there is a tramstop right in front of the hotel.

Would definately stay again!

Just spent 5 days at this hotel and can't find anything good at all to say about it. Location is poor (and slightly grim),and too far away from central Amsterdam if you want to see the major sites. It's not value for money, rooms are small, noisy and poorly equipped - not even a kettle and the wifi is rubbish unless you are in the lobby. It may just have been a poor week but generally the staff were miserable in both how they looked and interacted. Breakfast was just about ok but for the price you could expect better. I think we all get "the green" thing these days but the stupid stickers around the hotel/rooms remining everyone about it are tedious and frankly pointless. Having spent a lot of time in Amsterdam recently, they are loads of better standard hotels, in better more central locations than this. Would definitely not return.

Room Tip: Book elsewhere

My wife and I were in Amsterdam for a week and we got back a few days ago.
Amsterdam was great, but this hotel ruined a big part of the experience and we really regretted reserving it.
the worst thing was definitely the bed. Oh my god, what a horrible bed!!!
when we were lying on the mattress, it would sink in the middle to form a hole, so the whole night we slept in the most uncomfortable position and in the morning we got up with such backaches which lasted all day long, and it was like that for the whole week!!!
The room was cleaned very poorly and the sheets were not replaced even when we put the sign that states "make me clean again" which the hotel provides.
we had to pay extra taxes above what we paid when we ordered at hotels.com.
The hotel is located in a god-forsaken neighborhood and there's nothing around it, no restaurants, no cafes, not even a small supermarket to buy things for the room.
The structure of the hotel is weird, and we had to take 2 elevators + walk a corridor + going through 5 heavy doors to get to our room, every time!!!
It was awful and we will never stay in this hotel again, even if we have to pay twice for another hotel. It's just not worth it.

Dear Guest, First of all we would like to thank you for your feedback.

What a shame that the Conscious experience was not a success this time. We wish you had voiced your concerns during the stay and we surely would've been able to help you out.

If there is a next time we will gladly guide you to the many restaurants (and grocery stores) located in our street and make sure that the room location and the bed are to your liking.

Please note that city taxes always apply to hotel bookings regardless whether you book directly with the hotel or via a third party.

First, this hotel is very clean. Extremely clean. Obsessively clean, I would say. It is impractical to reach the hotel by foot from the area of main toursit attractions (~20 mins walk from Leidseplein), however, Tram 1 will take you to the hotel front in ~10 minutes. Get yourself a 24/48/72/96 hr public transportation card and you will be set. The rooms are bigger that an average Amsterdam hotel for an equivalent price level. Breakfast was OK, bu do not expect anything extraordinary. One drawback we suffered from is a lack of a curtain or a shielding plastic protecting the shower in the bathroom, which resulted in a completely wet floor after every shower we took. Maybe it's an environmental thing but that's definitely wrong.
The staff is super friendly.
Overall, we were very happy with our choice and definitely recommend this nice hotel to the others.

Room Tip: Get a room in Tower B facing the inner street

Great value, great location, great service, clean and neat rooms, with very comfy bed, and the best thing was the breakfast. Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Only downside is probably the confusing layout, but we ended up making a game of trying to find the right way to the elevator.
