“Good value 4 star hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

I stopped here for business so it wasn't too far from the RAI, a nice walk or €10 taxi ride. In the evening the tram into the centre is a 10 minute ride and public transport is excellent and hassle free, you can buy tickets from reception and travelling around is easy to work out. Breakfast was very nice and the service was friendly and efficient. Rooms were very nice, everything you need and normal size for a City. The staff, all local from what I could see were friendly (the Dutch always are) and always willing to help.

Great stay for 4 nights in this lovely hotel. Location brilliant, as I wanted a quiet, upmarket area, which is what we got plus a 3 min walk to tram stop for very regular trams into city centre- about 20 mins journey. So best of both worlds. Room was excellent as was amazing service from really friendly staff. Bed was probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Not sure why a coupe of reviews were negative. ..I was worried but needn't have been. Fantastic stay and I would want to stay there again.

My wife and me spent 3 nights here having booked a short break through Secret Escapes. The hotel room was large and very clean and well decorated. It had a well stocked mini bar and comfy bed. The staff were excellent all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit on the outskirts of the city but the tram is near and very convenient. The restaurant is expensive and has a limited menu but bar snacks are reasonable. All in all highly recommended.

This hotel is a modern building in the quiet museum quarter of Amsterdam a good 20 minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum - trams and buses are available. We stayed for two nights in an executive room which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly, very helpful and all had a good command of English. I do not understand a previous review that complained about the breakfast buffet because we found it to be pretty good with a couple of hot dishes and the usual cereals, fruit, breads etc. We did not use the restaurant for other meals or the bar - the menu displayed seemed limited. We chose to use a small Itailian restaurant (Restaurant Sardegna) in Cornelis Schuytstraat (about a five minute walk towards the museums) which we found to be very good with lovely, attentive staff and good food. We had to leave quite early on our last morning and would have missed our breakfast, but the staff put together a take away breakfast for us when we asked if this were possible. Altogether this is a good quality hotel and my only real criticism would be that it lacked character.

When I see the appearance of the hotel at first sight, I am so surprised that it looks like a lovely wooden house. When we check in, the front desk staff is nice to explain our questions. One of them is so kind and sweet willing to take a picture with me. Moreover, the breakfast is good and the waiter is nice. The memory of staying in bilderberg garden hotel is wonderful. We are willing to come again!

Nice clean hotel with helpful staff. Modern with a nice bar and great bartender. Close to tram stop. If you are going to the Van Gogh Museum, buy your ticket at the desk and save a long wait in line. We also bought our tram tickets in the hotel. Parking is free on Sundays and half the cost on weekdays from trying to park downtown. Quiet neighborhood. One hour free wifi when purchasing a drink at the bar. This hotel is a good value for Amsterdam. We would stay here again.

Don't normally write reviews for hotels and haven't even left yet (last of two nights here) but the service here has been AMAZING.

didn't give the hotel 5 stars on everything solely because the room sizes are slightly small compared to North American standards and we are traveling with an 11 month old baby. Also there was an old receipt on the floor between a stool and the desk from a previous guest so housekeeping gets a slight minus for that. Also one phone in the room was broken and didn't get fixed but no biggie. If these are your only problems then really there's no problem!

But - front desk staff super helpful, super friendly and patient with all my numerous questions/requests.

Bar staff - frank was the best. Took a husband and baby free break in the bar after baby fell asleep both nights and frank made me very welcome. Super friendly And wonderful service.

If we come back to Amsterdam will definitely try to stay here again.

We stayed in an executive room - not sure if it's worth the extra as I didn't see a regular room. But figured it might be nicer with a baby. They have very nice cribs with cute duvets for the babies and toddlers. The room is a little small if you do have a baby but definitely manageable.

Otherwise the room is very well appointed and comfortable. They even leave the lights on and some music playing for you for when you return to the room.

Tram was very easy to catch. Less than 5 min walk to the stop with about 15-20 min to dam square.

Overall one of the most memorable hotels I've stayed at based on the service alone. I'm known as very picky usually so that's saying something. :)

Dear guest,


How wonderful to hear your stay in our hotel was so memorable for you in a postive way.
We always strive to provide the best service as possible and I will give your compliments to the front desk and Frank. I regret that I did not have the chance to read this review earlier to thank you personally during your stay. We will pass on the two notes about the cleanliness and phone to our managers of Housekeeping and Maintenance. Thank you for noticing our turndown service. By providing our turndown service we make sure you have a goodnight sleep.

We hope to welcome you and your family again in the Bilderberg Garden Hotel.
