“Friendly, very clean and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This must be one of the most friendliest hotels I've visited ever....All the staff are so so genuine and nice and go that extra mile to advise you especially Eko. Our room was on the small size but it is a town house so no worries. You are in Amsterdam and narrow houses are what you expect. It was a very very clean hotel room...the carpet needs updating but again a minor issue. Washing on a morning was challenging with a ledge hanging over the basin but hey so what...another minor inconvenience. The hotel is in a brilliant location and a 12 € taxi ride got us there from the railway station but you can walk it comfortably.

It is well worth staying here and good value - friendly, great location and lovely bars and restaraunts around. Anne Frank House less than 10 minutes walk away - we've been before so didn't have to join the hour or so queues we saw so book that in advance.

Great market outside but go beyond the clothes and food there is some interesting antique stalls near the church.

Thanks for a lovely stay we'd definitely come back to the Linden.

Room Tip: Try and get a canal view but all the rooms are nice.

Such a welcoming friendly atmosphere at this hotel. The staff are the friendliest and the most helpful of any hotel I have ever stayed at. Eko (?) was always on hand for great advice and tips about Amsterdam and the hotels surroundings. Always greeted with a smile.
The area is very quiet although there is a lot of small bars and cafes.
I read some comments that it took 40 minutes to walk to the centre? Me and my fiancé were both limping (sprained ankle and twisted knee) it took us 15 minutes to walk to Dam Square or Damrak Straat. 5 minutes to Anne House.
The room was small but they made good use of the space. Very clean and comfortable.
Everything was designed and finished to a high standard. WIFI worked great to. Very reasonable price for the location.
This hotel really made our trip special.
Thank you to Linden Hotel. I hope we will be back and will definitely recommend to friends.
I accidently clicked on swimming pool and don't know how to change it but the hotel doesn't have a pool.

The hotel is located in a quiet area of Jordaan district. There are restaurants very close by and even a grocery store. Good location for getting around Amsterdam. We walked to the Anne Frank house area (a 3-4 minute walk) and took a tram ride everywhere. The tram tickets cost 2.80 euro each and are good for 1 hour ... Which is great if you need to make a transfer to a different line. However I might add that almost everything in Amsterdam is within walking distance ... no more than 20-25 mins.
The tiny hotel lobby should prepare you for the really really small rooms ... but very comfortable with good amenities. Just no wiggle room especially if you have luggage and we had a bit as we were taking a cruise. Elevator was great to have. Lobby staff were helpful. We took a taxi from airport (39 Euro) and a taxi to the cruise port (13 Euro).

The rooms are very small, but very clean. The hotel is located in a nice area, close to shops and restaurants. Not ideal if you travel with big suitcases... The coffee shop in front of the hotel is just great for breakfast.

Visiting Amsterdam with my girlfriend staying at the linden hotel was ideal. It was very clean, excellent service and friendly staff. It was a 15 minute walk from Central and just that little bit outside of all the madness. Would definitely visit stay at the Linden again.

We were here just for a night because I read so many reviews of jordaan I insisted to stay here and what a beautiful location. The hotel was nice but its a long amazing walk if you have too many bags. The staff was great helpful and friendly. The room that we stayed was a bit too small just enough for a bed but it was so cozy neat and tidy. I realy liked the trendy look of the room and the beautiful canal view from the window. I would easily recommend this place.

Overall, my husband and I were incredibly pleased with our stay. We were in Amsterdam at the Linden Hotel for a week, and loved every second of it. The staff was incredibly helpful, very friendly, and accommodating. It was exactly what we were looking for.

The Room- We stayed on the third floor with a room that overlooked the canal...absolutely beautiful. There was lots of natural light, very airy, and incredibly clean. Just FYI...the rooms are alot smaller than the typical chain hotel..so don't expect a ton of space. We wanted more of the quaint feel, so it really hit the mark for us. But know that is will be tight with two people...so anymore than that in a room will probably be too much. The beds are very comfy as well which was a huge plus. Honestly though, we were out exploring the city all day and didnt spend a ton of time in our room so the space was not an issue for us.

The Location- I personally feel the location couldnt be beat. You are a quick walk to the city center, but away from the tourist hustle and bustle. We were looking for more of a local feel, and this hotel definitely gives you that opportunity. You are right along the canal and walking distance to everything.

Breakfast- The hotel offers basically like a continental breakfast for 10 euros a person. Not to knock the hotel, but honestly...we never got it. It is definitely overpriced considering there are SO MANY places to get hot breakfast for the same price. We went to Jennifers and Sara's Pancake House...both were great!

All in all, we were looking for more of a laid back, local trip. We were trying to steer away from tourist traps and gimicky things. So for us, this hotel was amazing. Unique feel, awesome location, friendly staff...we couldnt be happier. I have read some other reviews and the things people complain about weren't really a big deal to us. I guess it depends on what kind of trip you are hoping for. Don't go to this hotel with the expectations that you are staying in just any other hotel..its different and very cozy.
