“Great location and bed!!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights in Oct 2013. The location is great, short walk to Centraal station and not much further to all the main museums. All staff very friendly and helpful although we did feel we had to queue quite often to be served at reception. We were upgraded on checking in to a refurbished room which we were very happy about. The room our children had was a bit tired. The bed was extremely comfortable. Our room looked out onto one of the narrow streets but that didn't bother me, and the noise from revellers going home at night didn't bother me either. Breakfast was included in our deal and was very good, great choice, lots of fruit, great pancakes. All in all, very happy with our choice - thank you!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

My friend and I stayed here for a three night stay. Hotel is only a ten minute walk from central station and on the tram route. It's a great location as it's a really quiet hotel and only minutes walk from Dam square. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and coffee shops right on the doorstep of the hotel. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms are not huge but clean and well furnished. The breakfast had a great selection that would appeal to all, ranging from cereal, fresh fruit to pastries and freshly cooked to order hot selection. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try and ensure to get a room towards the back of the hotel as it's really quiet.

Stayed there for 2 nights, 10 mins walk from Central station. All the must see places are within a 20 min walking distance. Reception very friendly and helpful, another positive you don't have to check out until 12 so there no leaping out of bed at silly o'clock. The room we had was getting a bit tired, but it was fine. We'd go back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Booked through the Accor site which gave us the best value. Booked into a classic room with a King Size bed, but were luckily upgraded to a "luxury" room with a "lounge" area.
Check in: very pleasant and efficient.
Location: About a 10 min walk from the Centraal station. On a relatively quieter parallel road, which means you are close enough to most things but not in the middle of the noise.
Rooms: VERY spacious for us. Very few storage areas to keep our clothes. The decor is a bit dated. Very fast internet
Breakfast: Pretty decent - standard European fare
The cold drinks in the reception are a nice touch.

This hotel is great without being "wow" - great value for money.

Thank you so much for leaving this review here at Tripadvisor. It is good to hear that you found the staff excellent and that the location was great for you. As we are not build as a hotel the room sizes may vary, I am sorry to hear that you have experienced your room as small, also here in Holland the queen beds are smaller than the doubles.

I hope you mentioned the hot water issue at the reception.

Despite these inconveniences I hope we may welcome you again in The Convent Hotel Amsterdam.

Warm regards,

A lovely and very clean hotel. This is very well situated in the heart of Amsterdam, a short walk from Central Station, and also a short walk into the good bits.
There is an awful lot to do here, my best suggestion is.........Go and play :)
