“Quiet and quaint!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Set right on Vondelpark just a short stroll away from all the action, this small hotel is a perfect way to relax after the hustle of Amsterdam. The rooms are a good size and the people that run the hotel are extremely helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Just returned from a four day visit to Amsterdam booked at short notice. We needed a room for three people but most places charged silly money. After much searching I found villa Borgmann and decided to take a chance. We arrived two hours before check in time but the room was ready so it was not a problem. The room was at the front of the hotel and was not the biggest of rooms, but perfectly adequate. The beds were comfortable and the en suite had a lovely large bath you could really relax in -just as well considering all the walking we did!

There was parking in front of the hotel although it was rather expensive. The alternative is to park in the park and ride about a mile away for a third of the cost, but I would rather have the car where i can keep an eye on it, rather than a long way away in an open parking area.

Breakfast in the hotel was typically continental, with meat, cheese, bread, eggs, fruit, and yoghurt. Perfectly adequate. There is a pleasant walk through the park ( behind the hotel ) to the city, or you can stroll a few hundred yards to the tram stop. Trams are very frequent and you can buy a ticket for one or more days, so it's just a case of hoping on and off whenever you want. A great way to get around.

Everyone in Amsterdam is very friendly and helpful, and that goes for the staff at the hotel as well. Would I stay there again? You bet I would, and I would happily recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Phone the hotel and speak to them rather than relying on the booking websites.

Found this hotel on wotif.com and found great value for money, stayed for 1 night. Room was a decent size, clean and shower was good. Hotel is fairly old, but was kept clean and everything in the room worked. There is a lift in the building. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and time was taken to explain lots about the area. It is a 5 minute walk to the tram stop and then about 15 minute ride into Dam Square. Our accommodation didn't include breakfast but there were quite a few brasseries within walking distance. We also had a walk around Vondelpark which was lovely.

Let's say that a total refurbish would not harm it. I cannot tell it was dirty, but an old moquette in the room does not allow to say the opposite either.

On the other side, the hotel is located in a lovely and rich neighborhood just across the Vondel park. It is quiet, relaxing and elegant. Another side of Amsterdam.
The attendee who welcomed us was funny, helpful and friendly: he listed some funny rules such as the reception closing down at (I guess) 23:00. He explained we would not have to disturb him after that time, since he was literally living and sleeping in the reception's back-office. Also the elevator needed to be turned off in night time, as nobody could have rescued if blocked in.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with small balcony.

We had a very pleasant two-night stay at this hotel. It is practically around the corner from the Vondel Park, which was nice when going for a run in the morning. It's also away from the city center, but it's only a 5 minute ride back.

The hotel staff was very friendly. Our room was a three-person room and a fourth bed was brought in. There was a small tv and a small fridge. There was also a small safe, which you have to pay for, but didn't find out about the extra charge (€1, no big deal) until we checked out. We were very comfortable and the bathroom was fine (be careful not to trip though!). We went out for breakfast each morning, so can't say anything about that.

The hotel is in walking distance from the #2 tram stop, which takes you by the Rijksmuseum, close to the Van Gogh Museum, and the Leidse Plein, two popular destinations. There are also some nice places to eat a few blocks from the hotel (we can recommend the bakery near the tram stop!). It also takes you all the way to the Amsterdam Central train station. Convenient all the way around! We'd stay there again.

This hotel overlooks Vondelpark. It is in a quiet neighborhood next to the British consulate. The management is responsive and try each time to make sure I am taken care of. It is a little pricy for the size of the room, but balconies are not that easy to find in the city, and especially not ones with such a peaceful, verdant view. If you are a smoker looking for a peaceful terrace to chill on, this is it.

Room Tip: As long as I'm not there, room #24 is the one to book. Only two rooms have the terrace, and this...
