“Small yet nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

I really liked the hotel for the fantastic staff, all of who were smiling and genuinely seemed to be willing to help. The hotel is smallish no doubt and can do with a bit of modernisation but yet the room I stayed in was spacious and bed was quite comfy.

The location is fantastic, walk-able from everything you need for both business and pleasure. Even though my room overlooked the main road, there was hardly any traffic noise in the night that I could hear in the room.

Overall a pleasant stay !!

Whilst the staff are attentive and the location is good for amsterdam, this place is really starting to look tired and dated. It needs some tender care to bring it up to the standard it claims. On the plus side the location is excellent for easy transport around the area. But the standard of the reception area and the bar is not lived up by the bedrooms and the general carpets around the building. Could do a lot better.

Being a 10 minute walk from Centraal Station, and a 10 minute walk from most of the other attractions (Red Light District, Dam Square) the hotel already ticks boxes. Checking in and out was simple and the staff who dealt with us each time were both polite and helpful. We paid extra for a superior room, so without seeing the basic I wouldn't know how much more luxurious our room was. Although it was a little small, the bed was wonderfully comfortable, the shower and bathroom were fantastic (even the little toiletries were lush) and everything was spotlessly clean. The only minor downside is that our room backed onto an alley with a hostel on it, so at times it was rather noisy. As well as the room being lovely, the bar downstairs is also perfect, comfortable seats, nice chilled out atmosphere and a brilliant drinks selection. All in all, good value for money and a comfortable stay.

Very friendly welcoming staff;comfortable room with large comfortable bed.Excellent breakfast.The hotel is in a central location,and convenient for the touristy parts of Amsterdam.Highly recommended.The only downside was the online booking experience,where we effectively double booked.the first booking resulted in a message to rebook.we were then double charged.It was sorted out and the staff at the hotel were very apologetic,upgrading our room.

Apart from cleanliness of bathroom this was a good hotel, with convenient location - short walk to the main station. Had more character than the average modern chain hotel. Breagfast was good with reasonable choice. Would stay here again.

My family of four stayed in January for 5 nights. Although starting to show it's age the hotel is full of history. We were advised that it is to be closed later this year for a couple of months,gutted and then refurbished. I sincerely hope the old ambient is maintained. We had rooms 415 and 445, there was plenty of room in both with arm chairs in both rooms. One faced the road and although there were trams running past we did not hear them. The showers had good pressure and temperature control. Located 7-10 minutes from the station it is easy walking even with baggage. There are restaurants all around the hotel with Dam square a 5 minute walk. Amsterdam for those who have not been there before is a very walkable city with good public transport as a back up.
What made the stay at the Convent Hotel so enjoyable was the staff, the ladies at reception on check in and the gentleman when we checked out, the staff in the breakfast room were all more than helpful with their advice and directions to different attractions and not forgetting the room maids. To you all, thank you for a most enjoyable visit. My wife and I look forward to returning one day when the changes have been made, please do not change it into another modern run of the mill hotels try and maintain some of it's character.

My wife and I booked this hotel based on some of these reviews and we were not disappointed. The location is perfect for a visit to Amsterdam and the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The room we had on 3rd floor was comfortable, spacious and was beyond our expectations. Would certainly recommend and would definitely return. Absolutely brilliant.
