“good location, friendly staff, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

This is s great three star hotel with everything I look for: helpful staff, good location in a real neighborhood, full breakfast, all at a fair price. The hotel manager, who I think is also the owner, is generous with information and quick to offer a water or coffee. The hotel is in a close-in neighborhood, on three tram lines, and walking distance to most tourist spots if you like hoofing-it. The immediate neighborhood is changing with new restaurants and pubs on every block. The hotel itself is small and the rooms are small but clean. The front desk is staffed 24 hours. The breakfast room is also the hotel restaurant. (Good pizza). My first room was a double and was quiet and roomy enough. My second room was a single and quite small, but who stays in their room in Amsterdam?

Room Tip: Hotel is on a tram line and busy street. Street side rooms can be noisy.

This hotel is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the owner, Murat, is amazing. My fiance, without realizing it, had left his satchel filled with cash, prescription drugs (Lortab), and passport, on a chair in an open eating area in the Museumplein. As we walked to find an ATM, a man was blocking traffic and honking. "What the devel was he doing?" Then he jumped out, it was Murat from the hotel we'd ckd into just a few hours previously, "Your satchel," he called to us. "What? OMG, John didn't have it." It had been found and was at the police station. The vendor who found it had called the police but not before looking inside and finding our hotel confirmation and called the Larende. Murat had gone to the police station, then drove around looking for us. Murat took us to the station, and then back to the Museumplein. We were speechless.....he had gone to all this trouble for us. We will be enternally grateful to this wonderful, very generous-hearted man for his kindness. And when we return to Amsterdam, this is where we'll be staying. We cannot recommend the Larende highly enough. Oh,and the cash, drugs, passport were all there

We highly recommend this Hotel in Amsterdam. The rooms and bathroom are perfectly clean. We had a balcony in the room, that was very helpful as it was warm outside. The price includes the breakfast, which was great and offers diversity. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, and the owner takes care of his clients. We felt at home. The location is perfect too. You can find nice places to eat in the street, view on the water. Next time we'll stay at Hotel Larende for sure.

Room Tip: Ask a room with a balcony (gardens side), nice and quiet

We wanted a traditional European style hotel rather than the standard "chain" hotel and Larende gave us exactly that! The property is spotless and the staff welcoming. The room was a good size, the bed comfortable and the shower hot! Windows that open and a little balcony gave natural light and fresh air.

The staff were great, as was the food and particularly the coffee!

Highly recommended.

We had a great stay in this hotel! The service was excellent, the room was nice and they even have their own pizza restaurant in the hotel. And yes, the pizza was delicious! The hotel is not in the center but the tram stop is a few meters away and it only takes you around 10 minutes to get to the main tourist attractions. Good value for money. We would definately stay there again.

My husband and I have just returned from Hotel Larende, Amsterdam. This was our first time in Amsterdam and I would recommend to anyone thinking of going. The hotel was spotlessly clean, modern and very homely. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom very clean. The hotel manager/owner Murat was excellent, he was so helpful and could not do enough to help. All the hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much bother. We ate in the hotel one fo the nights and the Pizza was lovely! It was only a 7 minute walk to the Anne Frank House and we walked most places, the tram line passes the front of the hotel, so transport is not an issue.

This hotel is located slightly out of the center of the city but within very easy access to everything. What we liked about the hotel is that it is away from the more touristy areas, in a neighborhood on the west side of the city, within walking distance (or a hop onto the trams that stop right up the street) to most major sights. The hotel itself is very clean and modern, particularly the bathrooms. The staff are all extremely welcoming and helpful. The room was somewhat small (although not all that small by European standards), but we were looking for a good value hotel rather than something extravagant, and that's what we got. When we checked in, they didn't have the double room that we booked, so they upgraded us to a double with a jacuzzi. We were in room 103, with a view of the back of the hotel (basically the back of other buildings), and it was VERY quiet. We heard none of the street noise that others have referenced in their reviews. The breakfast buffet that they offer is amazing, with everything from eggs, meat and cheese to yogurt and a beautiful fruit salad each morning. If you are looking for a nice hotel for a reasonable price within proximity to all that Amsterdam has to offer, this hotel is a great choice.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel are very quiet.
