3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Hotels in Amsterdam are very expensive, but the price for this hotel is reasonable. It's located in a tacky neighborhood, but it's within walking distance of the Anne Frank House. Skip the bar breakfast for 9.50 euros; you get only one cup of coffee, a free second cup is not allowed. The rooms are clean, small, and a bit shabby. It's convenient for the #5 and #2 tram lines.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel, our plane arrived "early" in the morning but we were graciously accommodated at once! (10:00 am.). Only glitch was obtaining the "early booking" incentive indicated on my Accor hotel loyalty program reservation

This hotels location couldn't be better. It is just a short walk from Central Station, right in the heart of the City. It makes it an absolutely ideal location to explore from. The hotel's buffet breakfast is excellent, one of the best I've seen, catering to more or less all tastes and with a high quality. My Gluten Free requirements were easily dealt with. My only criticism is the room which for a deluxe upgrade I would consider very small and we felt the bed was tiny.

We arrived in Amsterdam by train so the first plus was walking distance. Check in was great but our room key failed each day. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the wear and tear in our room but if I weigh everything up I still give it a high score. We loved the bars happy hour for the bargain cocktails and the convenience of having our breakfast included.

While on a tour in Amsterdam, my girlfriend was taken ill and had to be transferred by ambulance to the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis Hospital and ended up having emergency surgery. The tour group left the next day for Belgium, obviously without us. I was stranded, so far away from home. The staff of The Convent (Rene and Rob) stepped up to the plate, ensured my comfort by telling me to stay in my room (and not have the upheaveal of moving rooms). They also secured an exceptional rate for my stay including breakfast and taxes. While my girlfriend was hospitalized for the remainder of our trip (7 days) and was only released the night before our flight home, the staff treated me as family. Always asking if they could do anything for me, always asking about my girlfriend's progress. I can't say enough about the hotel as a whole, and in particular, Rene and Rob. Thank you so much. We will return to Amsterdam some day and will definitely make The Convent our "home away from home".

Room Tip: no matter which one you choose, it will be exceptional.

This hotel is very well located close to Central Station and Dam square. We were staying in nice rooms, quiet, good furniture and nice bathroom.
The breakfast is fine, but if purchased separately, a bit expensive.
The staff is friendly and helpful for advices.
Overall a nice stay in this hotel

The location of this hotel is amazing. A 10 mins stroll from Centraal station. Well in the center. We did not use public transport once. Everything is within walking distance (provided you are OK with walks up to 30 mins).
The room was clean but the bed was too small. We actually did not think it was a double bed.
In terms of facilities, there is a bar and a small gym.
Did not try the breakfast but plenty of great breakfast locations around the hotel (and cheaper too).
