My husband and I had a lovely stay in the Conscious hotel when we took a mini-break to the lovely city that is Amsterdam. We were looking a budget hotel and were really pleased to find the Conscious, which offers quirky cool decor in a convenient and attractive location. Vondelpark is a good 30min walk to the city centre and as we stayed in chilly Feb we didn't attempt the walk, however, the hotel is literally opposite the tram stop and you can purchase 1,2,3 day tickets from hotel reception. I would recommend walking 2minutes around the corner to Vondelpark itself, as it is a beautiful location, frequented by tourists and locals alike.
The hotel reception doubles as cafe/bar and is a nice place to chill in the evenings if city life becomes a bit too much for you. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our only criticism was that we were given a room at the back of the building and the view wasn't great.
We would definitely return again!
