“Very nice hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

I was pleased with everything about our stay at this hotel, we could not have asked for more. The staff were friendly, approachable and professional. Check in and out was very smooth. We had a room on the top floor, the stairs were steep and the lift was small but this wasn't a big issue. The room was modern, clean and had all the facilities you would expect. We paid for an upgraded room and breakfast. Breakfast was excellent, we paid for continental but what we actually received was hot food and items which were cooked to order.
The location was in a quiet neighborhood, but close to the museums and local bars and restaurants. It was a good walk to the centre (20 minutes) but very close to bus and tram links!
I would definitely recommend and would stay again!

This is obviously a decent 4-star hotel in a prime location in Amsterdam, so I wont focus on that.. Instead, ill meantion which things i did not like about the hotel:

1- The flooring of our room is not leveled, and im not just talking a couple of degrees slanted. If my wife and i stood at opposite directions kf the room, i would actually be looking "down" on her.
2- Housekeeping needs work. We left our room around 10 am and returned around 3 pm on two consecutive days to find our room had not been made up yet. On the third day, once it had actually been made up, all the housekeeper did was vacuum and arrange the bedding (did nit replace the drinking glasses, did not replace bedding, did not clean the dust off surfaces.
3- Hotel front door closes at 8 pm. I really do not understand why a 4 star hotel would do that in a safe neighborhood in one of the safest European cities. Its jnconvenient to have to use my keycard each time i want to go into the hotel lobby after 8, it also makes me feel like i live in a school dorm.

The rest of our stay was allright. Staff is kind and acommodating.

Stayed 4 nights in vondel.
I booked the small double room, but I found the size of the room really good in duch standards.
A clean cheerful room with 3 windows.. Nicely decorated and lots of space for clothes and other things. Wifi is reliable as well
The price was so good compared to a similar standard hotel in central location
The hotel is very central but far from the noise though.
Staff we're very friendly and helpful.
The only thing that was kind of disturbing is a weird voice coming from the drainage of the bathroom. But the whole stay experience is good enough to make me forget such disturbance.
I'd certainly consider staying again at vendol

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. We had a weekend city trip so for this it was absolutly ok. Super close to anything you want to see or do in Amsterdam. Good connection to public services. Hotel staff is polite. Rooms look great on the website - they are not as great in reality. They are absolutely ok though. For us the mattresses were extremely soft so sleep wasn't perfect but for 2 to 3 nights it is ok. The lobby and the restaurant have a cool style. Good hotel for a city trip.

I stated here for 1 night earlier this month. On arrival I was upgraded to a suite, so straight away, a sign of a great hotel!

The room was designed beautifully. Great character to the hotel.

Good location. Lots of restaurants nearby. Professional and friendly staff. Love the celebrations chocolates by the bar!

I've stayed at the Vondel whenever I'm in Amsterdam and typically 2-3 times annually for many years. In the areas that business hotels excel, the hotel is "just ok". They make smallish mistakes. They are not particularly efficient in service at the dining room. I'm not convinced that profit is a significant motive of the owners of the hotel; if it were, they would likely do a better and more planful job of building customer loyalty and new customer activity. But, unless you require a mistake proof and efficient hotel, which it is not, I fully recommend the Vondel. It is well priced. It has great breakfasts. It has lovely people working there. And, in my experience It has a soul. Most chains catering to business - with the possible exception of a few - don't earn their existential real estate. The Vondel does, I think. You will find nice people who want you to have a relaxed and happy experience. That's worth a lot to me.

This is a lovely hotel, down a very quiet backstreet just 5 mins walk from Leidesplein, where there are plenty of Bars and restaurants.
I had seen reports that the rooms on the lower floors were quite noisy, so I requested a room on one of the upper floors, which turned out to be at the back of the hotel and was so quiet you would have never of thought you were in the middle of a city!
The room was very clean, with a brilliant chambermaid that left the room as new every day.
I would recommend this hotel strongly.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room on an upper floor.
