“Best customer service ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Stayed in this delightful small hotel for three nights and have never experienced such delightful, friendly customer service. Tea and coffee (and endless cups of fresh mint tea) are complimentary and offered whenever you go out or return to the hotel. The very good breakfast (including fresh fruit salads and the usual Dutch style breakfast is served till 10am. An example of the great service is when I asked for fresh mint tea and they had run out of mint, someone went out and bought some mint and brought me a cup during my breakfast.
The rooms are small, but well-designed. Comfortable beds, good shower, all in all, a great little find in Amsterdam near a number of tram lines. Also near enough to the Jordan Nine Streets area and the museums to walk.
Can't wait to return to the lovely little hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet.

Spent just one night here on a trip to Amsterdam for a concert at the Concertgebouw. The welcome was friendly and helpful - we got useful advice about tram and gallery tickets. Our room was, of course, quite small (this is Amsterdam) but roomy enough for two, and with a fine bathroom - including whirlpool bath. There is free wi-fi, but I forgot to ask for the password. Our double bed actually was a double bed - not two singles pushed together.
The breakfast buffet was excellent - containing all the usual ingredients, and it was a delight to sit at the window and watch the bike commuters flocking by on their way to work.
The location is fine. There is a tram stop about 50 meters from the hotel, with trams into the centre every few minutes.
All in all, an ideal hotel for a short stay. We will certainly be back.

We stayed there for 2 nights in November.

Location: Good
+ The hotel is located near a tram station about 10-15 mins taxi ride from Centraal station (for trains like Eurostar, Thalys etc).
+ It is also near a tam stop giving easy access to local travel.

Hotel Quality: Good
+ Rooms on top of a restaurant.
+ Friendly Manager and staff
+ Satisfactory food (part Greek cuisine)
+ Clean rooms and bathrooms.
- Rooms were cold. Even the extra blankets were too small and did not help much.

Would recommend for summer visits. Maybe the other rooms were warmer, but better to check before!

Room Tip: Ask for warm rooms.

We were staying in Amsterdam for a couple of days prior to an African safari. Since we had lots of luggage, one of the requirements for us was an elevator!! The Hotel Larende was clean, comfortable, quite small (typical for a European hotel) and had been modernized. The staff was most helpful. The tram stop less than a half block from the front door was super convenient.

My sister and I have just returned from this hotel where we stayed 3 nights. It is in a great location for getting around either by walking or the tram is just across the road. The room was very clean, fresh and had everything we needed for a short break. Coffee is available anytime, free and excellent. Breakfast was well presented with good choices. The staff were amazing - very welcoming, friendly and helpful with tips and advice. Tickets for trams, tours and museums can also be purchased in the hotel saving a lot of queuing time and hassle. They kept our luggage for us on the last day as we were on an evening flight home and due to the weather where the tram and train station lines were down, they sorted us out with a taxi to the airport. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will return on my next trip to Amsterdam.

Really pleased with our recent stay in Larende. Really helpful, polite staff, beautifully clean hotel. Evening pizza was great and fairly priced. Easy to walk in to the centre although next to tram if needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel to visitors to amsterdam.
