“Very nice location, very nice price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The hotel is located just off the Museumplein at a calm nice street.

The rooms are quite small and a little renovation wouldn't hurt, but everything is clean and if you're not planning on sitting in your room too much it will do the trick.

Breakfast in the morning is quite good, service level is also fine.

Overall good money/value ratio.

Hotel Sander is located in walking distance to Museumsplein and only 3 stations by tram from Leidseplein. The Hotel is a bit old fashioned and not in best shape, but every was clean the staff was friendly. If you just need a bed and a shower (ours was recently renovated) it´s perfect.

Room Tip: We were also lucky to get room 441 from which you can look to the backyard and above the sourroundin...

Stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights ,
It was a big of a disaster .. This is what happened
We booked it with hotels.com
When we arrived at the hotel the check in staff did not / would not acknowledge our booking even though we had the electronic booking confirmation right in front of him .
He leg us stay at the hotel but charged us more that what we locked in with hotels.com,
It was not that much more but it pissed me off, particularly because they made us wait for ages to get into the room / it was 9 at night so we were looking forward to getting into bed
When we finally got into the room it smelt soooooooo strongly of bleach!!!! Initially this pleased me as I like clean,
The next day though our clothes were stained by the bleached they had left on the floor, ( yes I should not have put my clothes on thd floor when showering)
My theory now with hand stuff around check in is the room was not ready anx they were quickly cleaning it,
We wouldn't have minded if they had of just said leave your bags here and cons back in an hour,
It's Amsterdam. Plenty to do
Overall it was not bad except we list a pair of trousers ANd a t shirt

I stayed at this hotel for one night in July 2012 and I have to say it was an average place to stay. Our room was very spacious however we noticed many cracks on the wall and a crack and flaking wallpaper on the ceiling this I assume to be the damp that was clearly visable through the wallpaper. Also their was an awful smell in the room everytime we opened the window which we had to do as their was no air conditioning. It was very difficult to get to sleep due to the noise.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Very good location. Got there at 11.30 am and was told room ready.In the basement and was not the best place to be.Very basic and dark. Clean though and warm if you switched the radiators on. Boiling hot water. Should have requested another room. Especially when we checked out and was asked "Oh so you were ok in that room? Most people dont like it!"Imagine in the summer the basement rooms would be noisy and hot. 50 euro per person deposit was unexpected and by the time we had discussed between ourselves that we would leave a credit card number the receptionist had filled out a form for cash which she didnt want to change!Breakfast hard boiled egg (hot though) warmed roll and a plate of cheese and meats. Some sliced bread, orange juice and tea or coffee. 2 types of cereal.If I had not got this "free" with avios points I would have been upset!

Room Tip: NO ROOM 109 (basement)

Very good experience I have had. The hotel is very quiet and the staff has been very friendly and helpful.

The conditions are good, however I would suggest to place a kettle in each room to allow the customers to make their own herbal, relaxing tea to unwind after an excessive walking.

Also, the location is perfect especially for someone who comes from such a noisy place like London. The hotel is in a very lovely residential area and at the same time very close (walking distance) to the centre and tourists' attractions, eg dimonds museum.
