“Correct. Conveniently placed very near Concertgebouw”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Small hotel, just correct. Conveniently placed very near Concertgebouw. Several tramway lines pass nearby. 20 minutes pleasant walk from hotel to RAI Congress Center (I had to attend a Congress there, my wife just wantet to do tourism in the city).
Our room (3rd floor) was small but clean. Bed and bathroom were OK.
Breakfast simple but also OK. I don't need a sumptuous breakfast.
Personnel OK. A light bulb in the lamp above our bed was fused. We reported it when we went away from the hotel in the morning, and in the afternoon it was readuly substituted.
They arvertise there is wi-fi everywhere in the hote, but in our room it didn't work; apparenmtly it was only working only in the ground floor.
Overall, just OK, especially if you want a simple but correct hotel not far from RAI Congress Center, and also well connected byt tram with city centre.

Room Tip: Some people say the basement room should better be avoided. Our room in 3d floor was OK.

Safe area but you need to be buzzed into the hotel like a 2 year old, no internet on the upper floors, poor to zero connectivity in the lobby and eating area. The owner has no client service skills and did not listen to the internet issues I and others had in the lobby.

There was virtually no water pressure on the 4th floor, you cannot regulate the heat in the room, the telephone did not work, the stairs are very steep even for Amsterdam. The is a hotel for the desperate. The only good thing about this place is the location.

Room Tip: Review trip advisor and look at the trends. They are very telling. Second, book early or you get s...

Hotel à éviter absolument: accueil exécrable, chambres sales, odeurs de haschich / horrific experience: dirty, smoky, nasty.
Twe travelled with our daughters and the guy at the reception - very unpleasant since he knew confident since he knew we would be debited on our Visa Card anyway -wanted to give us rooms either separated by 4 floors, or in the basement!

Good- right by a tram stop - Number 16 which takes you into the city to all the stops you need.
Clean and staff are OK. The beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was good. Water is hot and heating works. Has a bar which they will serve you at when you require.
Bad- We had the basement room which is quite a good size but smelt. ( not sure if water pump was broken as damp patch on the floor.) The night staff were noisy and did not know what they were doing at 7 am when checking us out. Breakfast is not worth the money- go elsewhere for breakfast.
However if you want a budget hotel and not the noise of the inner city & want your own bathroom then this was an OK hotel. They mean NO SMOKING which was good.
Having been many times to Amsterdam and stayed at more expensive hotels I was happy with this stay overall which was only for two nights. The location was good as right by Museumplein and Albert Cypt Market. The Tram stop just a little way from outside hotel made it good.

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.

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
