“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Vondel for 4 nights earlier this week. We had no problems with the booking and the staff were all very friendly. We arrived before 3pm (you can check in after 3) and were taken straight to our room and were given a map of the city which was very helpful. The room was a standard double, which is a lovely room with a very sophisticated and boutique design! The only complaint was that the room was a little small, and was a bit tricky to get around as the bed almost touched the wall at the other end of the room. On the plus side the shower was lovely!
We didn't pick a breakfast option as we wanted to try some of the other options close to the hotels (cafes and bars ect).
The area that the hotel is in is lovely - its located on a safe side street where there were a few other hotels and some nice restaurants to eat in. Only a 5 minute walk from the Leidseplein Square we couldn't have been in a better location.
We both decided that we would definitely stay again, the price was extremely reasonable for the service we received and for how comfortable we felt in the hotel. I would recommend this to families and couples, but maybe not big groups of friends as it is quite a walk from the bar/club/red light district area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room thats not in a basement as I've heard this can be a little noisy and stuffy.

Stayed at this hotel in September 2013. It is a really nice hotel in a perfect location in Amsterdam. Located about 3 minutes walk or less from the nearest tram stop - it also on a quiet and safe side street which meant it was easy to sleep. Five minutes walk to would bring you to Leidseplein Square which has some lovely pubs and a great vibe. Ten minutes walk would bring you to Dam Square and the main shopping street, Kalverstraat. It is also a few minutes walk from the beautiful Vondel Park - we rented bikes and cycled around the park - perfect for those of us who didn't want to negotiate the numerous tram lines and cycle tracks of the city. Breakfast was a lovely relaxed affair and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I will be recommending this hotel to friends visiting Amsterdam.

Visited Amsterdam to ring in the New Year and were told by friends to stay in this area and with so many hotels to pick from we just didn't know where to start! Finally we settled on this hotel, we called to book and staff were very helpful over the phone with our booking. On arrival we found it to be in a great location only a 5 min walk from the tram line located in Leidseplein which was a great place to be.
We found that we managed to walk to all our destinations from here although trams are easily accessible as well if you don't want to walk. On arrival reception staff were very helpful in recommending places and providing maps etc, our only disappointment was that our room wasn't ready even though it was 3.30pm and we were told we could check in from 3pm. However we went into the hotel bar were the very nice barmen provided us with drinks and then on settling the bill 45 mins later he provided our drinks for free due to the delay with our room... all was forgiven!
Our room was located on 5th floor to the back of the building and was standard double, this was a good room, little small although didn't bother us as we only intended to sleep and dress there. Tea & Coffee provided (bonus) and room was clean and tidy, shower was lovely large and great shower.
We were very pleased and would happily book here again, holds happy memories now as we got engaged here as well on New Years Eve... Best place we have ever celebrated New Year!

This nice design Hotel in Amsterdam is like nearly all Hotels fitted with small rooms, but nevertheless very stylish and with cool interior. My room was with a huge comfortable bed, bottomhigh and huge flatscreen. Breakfast very good, situated just in Walking distance to downtown. Highly recommendable.

Me and my husband stayed here for 4 nights in december 2013. Really great location. We really liked being close to Leidseplain and it's trams/airport bus, as well as close to Vondel Park and the museums. The beds are comfy and the bathroom is spacious.The breakfast was very good and reception staff was very friendly. If we were ever to return to Amsterdam we would definitely book this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, it is a very nice hotel. Unfortunately we were given the wrong room (twin not double) but this was quickly sorted by the staff, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room we stayed was lovely and cosy with a nice shower.

The location is perfect close to buses and trams but easy walk to most places. 5 minute walk to Vondelpark.

We hired bikes from them, I personally would suggest hiring bikes separately mainly because they are quite big and bulky with hotel vondel on the front making it clear that you are a tourist in Amsterdam.

Overall I would recommend this hotel and we would stay again.

The place is a gem. Location is perfect, very central, minutes away from Leidseplein and Vondelpark.
The lobby, lounge and reception are beautyfully decorated with a mix of any¡antiques and modern. but fully respecting the wonderful Amsterdam style building.
The restaurant is very inviting and there is an amazing garden. Reception staff was very friendly.
Although the room was small, it had large windows which opened up to the garden - beautiful.

The only downside was that there was a fire alarm and it was very unclear what was expected. There was a strong burning smell outside, but although there was staff inspecting the building it didn´t feel as if there was a clear process. The staff walking around remained calm, but almost too relaxed and I could stay in my room. Which was in a way fine, but there was no follow up if everything was safe and in order again.

Overall I had a good stay and loved the building. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: If this hotel is full, check out their other locations, they look just as nice. Carefully check...
