“Nice and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I stayed at filosoof for 2 nights and found it comfortable and enjoyable. Check in and check out were smooth and seamless. Hotel staff was nice and helpful. There is a little bar in the lobby. Breakfast was included with the room. A more than adequate affair to start your morning. The room was quite and clean. The bathroom was large and had smooth availability of hot water. In the backyard there is a nice garden to relax. And there is some indoor patio seating if you don't want to sit outside. It is an easy walk to the canals and attractions. Location is central

The location is close to vondelpark but 15 min away from the city center, when you walk all day the hotel way comes to long to go so better to arrange a closer otel.
My room the tv , phone were not working and no hair dryer at room, the breakfast was so poor , if you go to breakfast a little late you could not find anyting.there are main building and some buildings across to street, i stayed at hotel but they gave a room to my friends building 11 ( across the street) , their rooms was also at basemend and the room was so bad , the stairs at hotel was so narrow and bad.if you insist on staying at hotel do not accept anything good !

Room Tip: stay at main building

Perfect localation, small cosy hotel with small room and nice decoration. Lovely and helpful staff, nice backyard. Expensive breakfast. We love this hotel land will be back soon. Small bath, but clean and big soft towels and lovely soap. Every room I different decorated and every day there Is new word of the day in the elevator.

This was the smallest double room I've seen in my life. Extremely small, especially for two. Very poor rooms, bathroom door would not close properly, no space for luggage...Staff was very friendly and helpful though. Location is great - a bit far from the city center and right next to the park. Too expensive for that kind of room. Wouldn't go back there.

Birthday trip for my husbands 40th and the staff at Filosoof could not do enough. I called them prior to our arrival about a room upgrade and thus they did at a greatly reduced cost. I also asked for some bubbly to be in the room for when we got there, we did however, arrive 3 hours prior to check in time but not a problem! We could book in straight away and they said just let them know when we want the bubbly and they would pop it up. The room was great with a gorgeous wet room (only downside is the stairs but thats traditional Dutch architecture!). The staff were friendly and really helpful. OK, the room could do with a bit of a touch up but it was clean and tidy and its an old building so it will never be 100% perfect. If you want that modern neatness go to a Hilton! Overall great hotel, fantastic location next to Vondlepark and amazing staff. Oh and the beds are to DIE for!!! Just couldn't fit it in my case.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the suites in a building opposite the hotel and had loads of space and the room...

The Filosoof is just grubby, dirty and nasty. The room we occupied was minute. It would have been small for a single never mind a twin room.
The walls carpets and paintwork were filthy. There was even the residue of someone's nose on the wall. The bathroom was a joke. It appeared to be a cupboard! The area that you could actually stand in whilst using its facilities was about 18" by 12". The sink in the "bathroom" was so small that it could only hold about a litre of water.
There were three clothes hangers in a kind of slit in the wall and that was the total storage for clothes, so you had to live out of your suitcase. The beds (single) were awful. Uncomfortable, small and rickety. There was one pillow and a dirty cushion per bed.
The windows hadn't seen water for months and the window sill was disgusting. Walls and ceiling were dirty and marked. The carpet was badly stained. In one corner of our room there was around 3ft of cable piled up that was connected via horrible conduits to a hole in the ceiling.
At one stage the corridor roof was leaking outside one of our rooms. The carpet became soaked and remained soaked throughout our stay.
The hotel may be nicely placed in a quiet street and close to the park but there is nothing else to say in its favour. Cannot see how it got 3 stars.
A very unpleasant experience. Avoid at all costs.
