“Naughty Nuns room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Stayed in this hotel 31 march for 3 nights booked thru Expedia.com booked a queem sized bed as husband is 6ft4in when we arrived the receptionist took one look at husband and said are you aware that queen size in holland means small double!!! It would appear that apart from a superior room at 30euros extra per night we were stuck with it. Hotel was clean and breakfast was fabulous. Very close to Dam Square and 5 mins from central station. staff were lovely but our room was very small and very dark and we called it the naughty nuns room. Visited Keukenhof gardens which were magnificent it seems everyone in Amsterdam speaks English,fantastic trip, would do it again and stay at the same hotel but would definatley make sure it was a bigger bed and bigger room.

Room Tip: dont book a queen size bedroom,try and stay away from the front of the hotel as trams seem to go mos...

Stayed here for two nights and we were very satisfied with the stay. Decor is pretty outdated, but I don't really mind. Hotel and rooms were kept clean and concierge was helpful. Hotel is in a great location-close to the trams and within walking distance of many places to shop, eat, and drink. No regrets with this stay.

Another revisit and not disappointed yet. To date, always a quiet place, helped by good carpeting. Reasonable rooms and always good front desk service. Great location. Can be a little pricey but then again aren't most hotels in Amsterdam ? Unless you get a special deal that is.

Revisited the hotel after 3 years would have hoped to see some upgrades like safe in room or newer bathrooms, bed very comfortable. Hotel needs some TLC. location is great close to central station. Number 2 as well as number 5 trams stop outside the hotel. the staff are very attentive. Breakfast selection is good, would be nice to have gluten free or soya selection too. Wifi works well in all areas of the hotel. When back in town I may stay again

We, my friend and I, went to Amsterdam for a concert at Ziggo Dome. The Concert were unfortunately cancelled. The Convent Hotel were nice though. Only 10 minute walk from Central Station. Supernice service. I read on TA some bad experience, but gave the good ones a chance. Clean hotel and good location. Good choice! I'll be back!
