“A nice little hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights and liked the hotel. Originally I was booked in the sister hotel, Vondel around the corner and upon checkin when we asked for an upgrade to an executive room, they offered us the executive room in the Roemer hotel as they said it was nicer.

I have no complaints about my stay. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful.

Our room was very nice and spacious with a king bed, small sitting area, spa bath and a total of 3 tv's. We had breakfast included in our price which was ok. As it is a small hotel, I did not expect a huge variety if food but it was still good.

As for the location... It is on a quiet little street which is nice although I prefer to be more central (probably in the dam square area) but I guess it is a personal preference. I like the hotel and would recommend it although I probably wouldn't stay here again if i returned to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Executive room was very nice and spacious. Ask for a room with a walk in shower and separate spa bat...

We stayed in an executive room which was a good size and the all inclusive rate made use of the mini bar easy! One issue with the room was that the heater on the ceiling of the bathroom was permanently on when the light was on so if you spent any time in there it became uncomfortable.
The other down side was when we called a few days before to ask for restaurant suggestions we were told to try Google! Then when we asked about booking a restaurant on the Saturday evening we were told we stood no chance of getting a booking at the weekend if not booked in advance. The local Planet Hollywood and chain restaurants were suggested.
Overall a good hotel in good location for museums and designer shopping but needs to work on service.

We stayed here for a weekend trip to Amsterdam - well priced hotel - we bought a package with breakfast included. The room is small - the bed huge. The in room mini bar included is handy - they have 3 jugs of gin- vodka and rum which you can then mix with the cokes/tonics etc from the little fridge. There was a big TV at the end of the bed on the wall and also a smaller TV in the bathroom. The jacuzzi bath is huge and easily fits two people but the bathroom is tiny and the sink is very shallow. All in all - the location is fantastic and the room is ok if all you care about is the bed and the bath - which was my main focus. The breakfast you may want to skip - the service was very slow and no one was clearing away the table so we could sit down so I had to do it. The food on offer wasn't exactly the freshest either. You are much better off going to a cafe nearby. For 260 a night it is fine. The bed did not have a mattress cover which I found slightly odd for a hotel - just a sheet. If they spent some more money on better quality linen it would be better. It is not a 5 star boutique hotel but trying to be. I would rate the hotel - average

Room Tip: The executive room was small - so i definetly wouldn't get a room smaller than that

We selected this hotel largely due to Tripadvisor reviews; I'm not sure we'd stay here again. There was nothing egregiously wrong with the hotel, but I'm not sure "boutique" hotels are for us. Our check-in experience was fine, and our initial impressions of the room and hotel were fine. We thought the shower and sink in the bathroom were stylish, but not very practical (in fact, our stay at this hotel has prompted us to jokingly define "boutique" as "the people who designed this stuff may not have ever actually used it themselves"). The DVD player in our room didn't work properly, which was no big deal in itself, but we were surprised when we called to report it that the hotel had to send out for someone from their "sister hotel" to come and fix it. It was indeed fixed, but the player is oddly located in the coat closet by the room door and in order to pause, ff, rewind, etc, you need to jump up from the bed and point the remote at the player in the closet. Very strange. On checkout, the elevator was not working and they again had to send out for someone from the "sister hotel" to come and fix it. Again, maybe not a huge deal but we were on a timeline to catch a train and had to tell the hotel ourselves that the elevator wasn't working - and then it took some time for the "sister hotel" person to arrive to fix it. We got the impression that there was really only one person in charge at this hotel, who for the vast majority of issues had to call the "sister hotel" for resolution.

It seemed to us that, compared to other hotels in Europe at which we stayed on this trip, the Hotel Roemer was skewed a bit low in terms of value for money. Were we to return to Amsterdam, we'd probably look to stay somewhere else (although we thought the location was fine). Don't get me wrong - there was nothing obviously bad or objectionable about the hotel, it's really just an accumulation of small things that make you go "hmm".

On the plus side, the hotel embraces an "all-inclusive" concept, which in part means that they provide you with carafes of liquor in your room that are complementary. Now if only they'd picked a decent Scotch...

This was a small hotel in a side street in Amsterdam. Great location if you don't have a car but a nightmare to park near! The room was ok in size but the safe didn't work nor was it ever repaired to a working condition. Everything seemed to take an age to get right so couldn't recommend staying here

Most of the time the location is even more important of the HOTEL it self and this was the case.

Queen's Day in Amsterdam is crazy but I strangely find a room here.

I slept in the room at the ground floor, and I think i overpaid a bit since the room was really small, or better not well lay out. You enter the room and you can barely pass to go to the "living" since the bed is set in the wrong direction according to me and it makes only a little path with the wall.

The bathroom was not too big but i found the shower pretty good and quite large.

The room service was quite good and also i had a nice breakfast at the hotel restaurant.

Stayed there in the winter 2009.
We were thinking that we were going to have a wonderful stay in a charming boutique-hotel but...
The room was very small, and not very clean.
Most of all: the heating was not working properly and it was very cold inside, and the staff couldn't do any thing about it...
Breakfast room was too small for the number of clients which lead to long waiting times to get placed or served...
Breakfast itself was good though, but it's not enough!
We won't return at Hotel Roemer.
