“Stylish and convenient hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Loved, loved, loved this hotel! I stayed here for a long weekend with a friend. Vondel is conveniently located just 5 minutes walk from a main tram line, but for those who love walking like me, it's also easy to walk to main shopping and tourist areas. Even though the location is central, Hotel Vondel is on a quiet side street, away from Amterdam's hustle and bustle. The decor is modern and stylish, but the hotel also feels old and historic. Breakfast is fantastic, and you can order an omelet or french toast in addition to the per-prepared buffet. There is also a hotel bar where you get get a cocktail or glass of wine in the evening before retiring to your room.

Stayed with my 10 year old daughter. Staff were lovely and the hotel is really easy to get to on the Tram from the Central Station.

Rooms weren't as nice as they looked on line - but bathrooms, restaurant, and service all great.

Only downer was really strong smell of cleaning products in the bedroom.

Dear BaronvonGreenberg,

It is a pleasure to learn that we were able to be a part of your comfortable Amsterdam-trip last month; thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor.
I am very pleased to learn that you highly value our staff’s attention throughout your stay.

Thank you also for letting us know about the strong smell of cleaning products, the room should not smell like this when you arrive in the room, I will personally take this up with our room attendants.

I hope to be able to welcome you again on your next trip.

Best regards,
Suzanne Bubenik – Hotel Manager

We loved this hotel. Our room was large and spacious and very modern. The bathroom was also large with a wonderful shower head. Best of all, the location cannot be beat. It is right near everything you will want in the center of town. Very nice and helpful staff at the reception desk as well. Highly recommended!

When we arrived to the hotel we were pleased with the location. However when we realized our room was in the basement we were extremely disappointed. It is literally below the street level and only has a few windows that are at the top of the wall closest to the ceiling. When looking out you can see peoples shoes. I can't imagine if there were a fire how one would escape. Our second day at this hotel we left early to sightsee returning at 4pm. The room still had not been cleaned, we were told they had until 5pm to do this. We originally booked the hotel for 3 nights. When our plans changed we called and asked if we could cancel even though it was a non-refundable room. We were told it would be no problem since we were calling two weeks in advance. When we returned home, we called and sent several emails about our refund. We were told they would not refund us because the hotel was not full while we were there. I don't know what I'm more angry about. That they would not honor what they had originally told us, that they didn't bother to clean our room at an appropriate time or that even though the hotel was not fully booked they clearly gave us one of the worst rooms in the hotel. Either way I am disgusted with the way we were treated. Do not stay here!

Room Tip: If you HAVE to stay here don't let them put you in the basement!

If you are on business, please avoid this hotel.

I was put in the dungeon (as Lori L described it). I believe i was next to the service room.
The staff was unbelievably inconsiderate - opening and slamming the service door and literally screaming to each other down the hallway for nearly 2 hours this morning.

I asked them to stop, but they didn't.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the first floor.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night, and it was a poor experience. They put me in a room on the 1st floor, which turned out to be a dungeon with a staircase leading down. The room was facing the street, and I could hear everyone walking by. Wi Fi signal in the room was terrible so I could not do any work and had to go to the lobby. The floors in the entire building were squeaky, as a result I got woken up by the first early bird risers. Overall, it is not a 4-star hotel in my opinion.

We checked in here yesterday and are currently still here. The staff was great upon arrival and was able to check us in early. Which came in handy after an overnight journey. We had the breakfast buffet which included fresh salmon, meats, cheese, bread and juice. It was very good. Location of the hotel is perfect, just down the street from the trams and shops. It is about a 5 minute walk. Even close to the Apple store which is nearby. Rooms are great. Hotel is quiet. Wifi which is free, works and is fast. Mini bar is stocked full and actually keeps things cold. 100% recommend.
