“Lovely Hotel, Lovely Area, Lovely Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed at the Bilderberg Garden Hotel for 2 nights as we visiting Amsterdam with some friends to celebrate a 30th. I managed to bag a good deal through Secret Escapes for this hotel and secured an executive room.
The hotel was a 20 minute trip on the bus from Schiphol and easy to locate after exiting from the Museumplein. I had emailed the hotel the day before to see if we could gain early access to our room and despite not getting a certain yes in my reply, when we checked in 2 out of the 3 rooms in our group managed to check in around 11 am.
The room itself was lovey, a big comfortable bed with a Samsung TV in the end with an array of channels. Good size bathroom with a jacuzzi bath (which we didn't actually use) and all the amenities one should require. A few nice touches including fresh bottles of water delivered to the room everyday as well as apples made for a nice treat. We didn't use the restaurant as we wanted to explore eateries in the city, but it was busy everyday - even if it did look to be a bit on the expensive side.
The hotel staff were very friendly, handing out maps when requested and explaining all we needed to know about the local area. The hotel is located in a lovely part of Amsterdam, 20 minutes away from the hub of the city center (Dam Square, red light district etc) on the tram. Although a nice walk through Vondelpark towards the Jordaan area makes a nice change to using public transport.
Overall, a fantastic stay and I would recommend to anyone.

A special 50th birthday trip was enhanced by our 3 nights in the Bilderberg. First night noise issues, sorted immediately. After that, nothing was too much of a problem for the wonderful staff.
Far enough out for the peace and quiet, near enough to the city for a pleasant stroll every morning through Vondel Park.
My only regret was not eating in the restaurant as we had our evenings planned. Next time.....

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room away from the kitchen area.

I stayed for a couple of days for business.
The impression was very bright. Room was comfortable, spacious with cosy bed. Bathroom was nice with scented oatsoaps.
It is not too close to the city centre but it takes 2 minutes to get Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum by bicycle ('m sure this is the best way to go sightseeing in Amsterdam). Bicycles could be rent right in the hotel.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. I also liked that they had a great sense of humor.

We stayed for a Conference and we were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff and the location of the Hotel. It is in a very quiet and nice neighbourhood, which makes it convenient and pleasant. From there it is a short walk to RAI. Also there are two main tramway lines and the train station is not too far away. Overall good stay.
However, be aware of the city tax that they are going to charge on top of the overall rate.

Stayed for a week in bilderberg hotel , I choose to have breakfast in the hotel and paid extra for that. Room was very comfortable with attached cozy bathroom.it is very close to the city centre. But not walking. It is close to the train station ( no 5 and 24 takes 10-15 minutes to reach central station. Bar and bar attendant was excellent . Great service , friendly and helpful staff. I bought my train tickets from the hotel reception.
I wasn't quite happy with the breakfast as they served same menu with very limited choice menu.Absolutely fix menu daily. Oh god I couldn't eat same breakfast every day. Finally I decided to withdraw from breakfast though I paid in advance but they adjusted balance whilst checkout in my final bill.
Wifi was not free .perhaps you will have to pay for wifi in most of the hotels in amsterdam.

Overall it was very comfortable stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are staying here you can find few very nice shops for great breakfast at reasonable price. If...

I can only think that the negative comments were written by people who stayed at another hotel.

The Bilderberg Garden is a lovely hotel: our exec room was precisely that; it did not purport to be a suite, it was not overly large, but it was extremely comfortable, the jacuzzi was a perfect facility after a long day's sightseeing, huge fluffy bath sheets, crisp bed linen, all changed daily.

The staff could not have been more welcoming, more attentive or more helpful. It is difficult to single out individuals when this ethic pervades the hotel from management down, but Frank (bar manager, comedian, tour guide, politician, all-round star) is, perhaps, the jewel in the crown.
