“A Fair Weather Stay Only.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

The hotel was very clean and in great location to visit Amsterdam's rich museums. The staff was disinterested at check in but I guess it is hard to greet guests. There is no A/C which could be a problem during a warm spell - room did have small oscillating fan with "Alaska" on front so in theory it must blow cooler air. The breakfast was satisfying.

Lovely old completely modernized hotel, nice spacious rooms, fairly priced and a great location near the major museums. Transportation a block and a half away, within walking distance of several restaurants, a very helpful and accommodating staff who made all sorts of calls and reservations for us. Breakfast room was very pleasant and breakfast was fine.

We enjoyed the Hotel Aalders during our two nights/three days in Amsterdam with two other couples from the U.S. The location was great for us-- on a quiet street but very close to the major art museums and just over a block from the tram stop. The staff was extremely helpful.

The service from the reception was excellent and the had answer to every question that vi had. the cleaning of the room was very good.
We liked the room which was big enough for 2 adults and 2 teenagers and the bathroom was ok. The Breakfast was nice and quiet.
The hotel is situated in a very calm street and it is easy to reach the center of Amsterdam by foot or take the tram in the next street.
What I liked the most was the quiet atmosphere and the least that there was not quite enough space around the tables in the breakfastroom.

Room Tip: High up has the possibility to let the window open all day and night as the room has no A/C

We received a very warm welcome and the staff were keen to offer helpful advice. Hotel was very clean and comfortable with good sized rooms and a beautiful breakfast room. Great location, very close to museums and a couple of minutes walk to the tram stops. This was most convenient as we were able to use the trams to drop off our luggage on arrival and to collect it before returning to the station. The rest of the time we enjoyed being near enough to walk around the city sights.
