“Great location, very comfortable, excellent staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We really liked the hotel, it was great! The only reason I gave it a 4 star review and not 5 is because we were on the first floor and since the windows aren't sound proof, we couldn't sleep on the last night because there were rowdy drunks yelling outside our window at 1:30 am. I realize it isn't the hotel's fault, but I would really recommend being a flew floors up. In their defense, they did go out and request that they move elsewhere, which they did, at least for a while. Other than that, the hotel is nice, roomy, comfortable, has a GREAT location that let us go back to put bags in our room a lot, and there's free wifi, which is no small thing for a hotel. We would definitely stay there again, just on a high floor. :-)

Room Tip: High floor. Other than that, I'm not sure it make a difference. Or make sure your room isn't...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We were on the first floor with extremely high ceilings in the old fashioned style, very, very tall windows and awesomely beautiful drapes. I don't remember anything wrong with our sink. The huge tub was great for soaking and the beds comfortable. The location was great and reception was pleasant. I loved the Orient Express motif in the bar. Most of the furniture and accessories in the bar were from one of the old dining cars. My only complaint was that the room was too hot and we had to sleep on top of all the covers. It appeared that the air conditioning was not working. When I mentioned this a couple of days later, they explained that the hotel was a "green" hotel and when it is colder outside than inside the air won't work as you are expected to open the windows to cool off. That was all well and good except our windows were 6 or 8 feet tall and were of the transom type that have to be pulled open from the top. The hotel is actually three different buildings and perhaps the negative reviews all come from the same building which is actually older than the others. All in all we were quite happy with the hotel except for the thermostat that didn't work.

Travelled as extended family of 8 plus young child. Great hotel in an excellent location. Staff very helpful, especially with any requests for the toddler travelling with us. Lovely rooms. Wide choice for breakfast. Lovely bar. All in all a great hotel.

We stayed at the Convent Hotel for 4 nights on a short break. We were a little worried about this hotel, which we booked weeks ago, reading some TA reviews "tired and in need of renovation", but we needn't to have worried. We arrived at c. 11am and asked for a quiet room. We had to wait until after 2 pm, official checking in time, which is fair enough, and indeed, we did get a quiet room on the 4th floor away from the street. We sacrified some light, but we did not hear any noise from the street. The room was of a reasonable size, well decorated and clean. No complaints. The staff was always smiling and helpful.
As other reviewers remarked, the location is great, close to the station, shops and the fashionable Jordaan district. The museums however, are a little further away. We go regularly to Amsterdam, and I would come back to this hotel.
One tip to the management, why not extent the hours for the Dutch breakfast until after 9 am, before this is a little early for us when on holiday.

Centrally located, around a 10 minutes walk from central station. very close to all the main attractions and the main shopping street. Hotel staff are friendly and very helpful.
Room could use more lighting specially near the closet area. Bathroom amenities are worn out could use some restorations.
overall enjoyed my stay, would definitely consider this hotel when returning to Amsterdam

We have stayed at The Convent on a few different occasions but this was the nicest room we had been given. The room overlooked the road and although you could hear some tram/traffic noise it was not loud enough to be a nuisance. The bathroom was a good size with a full size bath and plenty of room to move around. Reception staff were friendly and the use of the umbrellas is always appreciated in Amsterdam.
