In May a group of us went on a bike barge trip that started in Amsterdam and we decided to take a couple of days ahead of our departure to explore Amsterdam. I found Skotel Amsterdam on Tripadvisor and booked for four couples. I wasn't quite sure what it would be like as I hadn't heard of "school hotels" before.
It was incredible! The rooms are very large and bright and new! Furnishings are contemporary and the beds were very comfortable. The best part, however, was the staff of students who catered to our every need. Each one we came into contact with was polite and professional and eager to help us.
Breakfast was included - which makes this an even better deal - and they were delicious and substantial. (Lattes were especially good - and pretty too!) The lovely dining room looked wonderful too - but it was fully booked both nights we stayed there. We found a local restaurant that was very good.
Skotel is not in the centre of Amsterdam but a very short ride on Tram 13 gets you there quickly.
An incredibly positive experience.
