“Cosy and chic with great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The Hotel Larende is a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is very handy: No 13 tram takes you to the centre and the train station and No 12 goes to Museumplein, both stop outside the hotel and run frequently. We bought a 48hr pass from the hotel for 12 euros each, great value. You can walk to the centre in about 20mins. The hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our double was small but I think this is usual for Amsterdam as the buildings are tall and narrow, Our teenage children's twin room was a bit bigger. The bathroom was well equipped with walk-in shower, basin and toilet. plenty of clean, white towels, toiletries, hairdryer, heated towel radiator and slippers. The bed was very comfortable with white linen and cosy duvets. There were two radiators in the room, both had thermostatic valves which you could adjust very easily. The only thing I would have liked was tea making facilities in the room. Breakfast was very good, a mix of continental with omlette, boiled eggs and fruit salad. We had dinner in the hotel one night and it was very good. The food was very tasty with good sized portions and you get 10% discount as a hotel guest. We wanted to try different restaurants otherwise we would have eaten here again. I would definitely stay at the Larende if I visit Amsterdam again, I wouldn't even bother looking for anywhere else, and I am fussy, anything that jars puts me off but I really liked the Larende. It certainly deserves its TripAdvisor award.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and liked it a lot. The rooms are clean and modern, with a good shower and sufficient heating. The breakfast has a good selection and the staff is friendly.

We had a room facing the street, but unlike some other reviewers we were not bothered by street noise.

The location of the hotel was better than expected. We didn't want to spend too much money and therefore chose a hotel outside of the city center. I thought we would have to rely on public transport to get to the city center, but it's barely a twenty minute (and very pleasant) walk to the Museumplein and maybe half an hour to the Dam.

Parking your car close to the hotel doesn't seem to be much of a problem. Maybe we were just lucky, but on arrival we found a free spot opposite the hotel. The parking fee in that area is 18 euro per day, which is a bargain if you compare it with the prices in the center. On public holidays you can even park there for free!

Conclusion : a pleasant stay in a nice hotel. Nothing extraordinary, but everything was fine! The location is good and parking your car nearby is possible without being totally ruined afterwards.

Our flight arrived early on Christmas morning and there wasn't much open in Amsterdam. While the hotel didn't have any rooms available yet (it was only 7 a.m.) they offered us a good cup of coffee and stored our bags for us until a room was available (around 1:00 or so). The customer service was always superb (both hotel and restaurant) and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, fruit salad, bread, croissants, boiled eggs, meats, cheeses, vegetables, jams, juices, etc - all good and plentiful. The restaurant portion of this hotel is great for dinner, offering a selection of pizza, meat mains, salads and pasta dishes. I had the Pizza Albert with their homemade sausage - it was a large portion and very good (and at about 9 or 10 Euros - a good price for Amsterdam). The hotel is a 30-minute walk from the city but you can buy tram tickets at the hotel and there's a stop right outside. You can also rent bikes here and buy tickets for canal tours, etc. (though I recommend researching canal tour operators first...they're not all equal). This place was fantastic and we'd definitely stay here again!

I was happy with my room. It was clean with sufficient space. The staff and service was excellent and they made a solo traveler feel welcome. The wifi was free, as it should. The location was perfect for my taste. Situated a few stops off from the main center with the tram or a quick walk. There is a supermarked nearby as well as a outdoor bar with some nice belgium beers on tap. I enjoyed the afternoon sun there. I recommend Larende.

I stayed for 4 or 5 nights at Hotel Restaurant Larende. For the cost of most rooms in the city, it is a bargain. The breakfast is better than most. It is extremely clean and, except for one guy who might have been having a bad evening, very eager, friendly staff. I was concerned about the location. It is a safe area convenient to everything. The trams stop almost at the door and can take you three different directions into town (train station, upscale restaurant and shopping, red light district, museums. The Anne Frank House is just a ten or fifteen minute walk.

It really wasn't that big a deal to me, but maybe for some people. Bring earplugs in case you face the street.

I'm already booked for my next time.
