The Convent Hotel is centrally located, in downtown Amsterdam minutes from the Central Train Station.
Streetcars and buses right out front. Easy access to all attractions. The beds are to die for.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is part of the Sofitel chain.
We arrived extra early one morning and our reserved room was not ready yet, but the Manager gave us a
smaller room so we could go to sleep after our flight from Athens...for this they threw in
free breakfasts (22 Euro value per person).
We climbed into the amazing bed and slept until 2:00 pm since we had been up since 3:30 am.
Seems strange to be sleeping in 2 different hotels, in 2 different countries within 6 hours.
The next morning we got up and had our free breakfast buffet.
The Convent hotel puts on a very good breakfast buffet.
I was thrilled to find shot glasses full of chocolate sprinkles,
I knew what to do with them, when in Amsterdam do as the Dutch.
MMMMMMM the chocolate sprinkles with unsalted butter eaten opened faced on delicious bread.
My wife really liked their fresh strawberry/orange juice.
She said it was the best juice she ever had.
We highly recommend the Convent Hotel, or any in the Sofitel chain. They are top notch.
