5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Best location in Amsterdam. Easy walk to the big museums and Vondel Park AND the restaurants that have more tourists than locals .

We had an upgrade to a junior suite which was luxurious and quiet. Three big floor to ceiling windows ( the street is quiet) - nice sitting area and great linens and king size bed.

Front desk staff were perfect - booking restaurants and giving advice on getting about.

Yes, the stairs are steep but there are elevators so you don't have to deal with the stairs.

It rained all four days we were there so never tried the outdoor seating which looked lovely.

Room Tip: The junior suite is worth it.

I was traveling with Vermont Bicycle Tours, After reading the mixed reviews I had some trepidations but found my second floor room facing the front of the building over the main lobby area to be quite nice. It was as nice a room as I have stayed in for the most part, and better than many name Hotel chain rooms. I had only breakfast one morning at the buffet and the food was good if not great. The internet service, or lack thereof, was a disappointment, but there were plenty of Starbucks, and an Apple store, nearby.

Room Tip: Street noise was not a problem, There are several linked buildings, I know the one where you check i...

Small hotel, but great localization and attention. The hotel is small but the rooms are big and new. The breakfast is good but a little expensive. It´s very close to the Vondelpark where you can ride a bike peaceful.

Room Tip: It´s a small hotel whith good restaurant, but they don´t have fitness center and kids ativities.

When returning to Amsterdam after a 2 day jaunt to Belgium, my boyfriend and I decided against staying in the hotel we had been staying in to start our trip so we looked for a central location. Hotel Vondel was just perfect, extremely close to many different places (park, museums, restaurants, etc) yet far from the busy central area - but only a few tram stops away.
The service was impeccable, with the linens being changed despite only staying for 2 nights. The room was a decent size and a comfy bed. Absolutely no complaints. When we next return to Amsterdam, I am sure we will look up this hotel again.

The hotel is very clean and quiet, and our triple room was large enough for us. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

It's only 5 mins walk to leidse Plein where you will find plenty of restaurants and entertainment, and its also very close to the museums and canal boat tours. Tram stop is at the end of the street.

If you arrive at central station take the #1 Tram and get off close to the Marriott hotel.

Didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on that.

I would recommend this hotel when visiting Amsterdam.

The location of the hotel in a quiet beautiful residential area is awesome ...the hotel is located quiet near to the lively leidseplan area with lots of bars and eateries ... ...Vondelpark is a 5 minute walk and a lovely place to visit during the summer evenings .... Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum are all at a walking distance from the hotel ....trams from the leidseplan take you to the central station within 10 minutes ..... The staff is courteous and helpful ....the standard rooms are nice and self sufficient but very small so if you need space upgrade to a larger room .... The breakfast spread is lovely .....overall a good place to stay and explore Amsterdam.....

Room Tip: Standard rooms are very small .... If you need space upgrade to a larger room....

Hotel Vondel was very close to museums, Vondel Park, zoo etc. and far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Amsterdam. But within easy walking distance to everything.Staff were extremely helpful and the hotel had a really fun layout. Had a ball there.
