“Excellent value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Just returned from a 3 Night stay at the Doria Hotel. I would definitely return. The room was quite small (all budget rooms in Amsterdam are though!) but very clean and tidy. The bathroom had a good shower and towels and soap provided. The internet (free) was excellent and streaming from Internet was smooth and fast. Breakfast each morning was very nice and simple (toast, cereal, eggs, cheese and ham with coffee or juice) and you simply helped yourself. Hotel location was excellent and your literally a stones throw away from the square and shops and amenities. All in all_ for the price paid and quality of the hotel and it's location then I'd say it was very good indeed! Highly recommended and would definitely return!

We stayed at the hotel doria in a triple room for 3 nights over Easter weekend. We always go for location over luxury on city breaks as we are hardly in the room so for the great price we didn't have high expectations for the hotel itself, but we knew the location would be spot on.
We were wrong not to expect much! The hotel was perfect.
The room and bathroom were basic and small, but the beds were the comfiest i have ever stayed in on holiday, the shower was powerful and the room was cleaned with fresh towels daily.
We also had a free of charge safety deposit box in the room too.
The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and polite.
Guests receive 10% discount in the Doria Italian restaurant and also in the Mexican over the road.
The hotel is located just off Dam square, the location couldnt be more central.
In all we absolutely loved the Hotel Doria and will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Amsterdam.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and couldn't recommend it enough. I travelled with 2 friends and we booked a twin room for myself and my friend and a single room for another friend and although the rooms are slightly small they were spotlessly clean and we were provided with maid service with clean towels everyday. The showers in the hotel are awesome!!
Breakfast was included in the price and there was a choice of meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, bread, rolls, yoghurts and fruit juice.
You could not ask for a better location as the hotel is situated in the heart of the city. The train station is less than a 10min walk away, Red Light District 2min walk and Dam Square 1min. There is a great Italian restaurant at the bottom of the hotel (where guests get a discount) and there are some brilliant restaurants right opposite the hotel.
The hotel staff are helpful and friendly.
The only thing I would suggest if booking this hotel is to ask for a room at the rear of the hotel as ours was on the main road and was slightly noisy at night as its a busy thoroughfare but didn't really interfere with us getting to sleep.
I would 100% recommend this hotel, I have travelled all over the world and stayed in many hotels and this one although not a 5 star hotel provided us with everything we needed for a great price and most importantly to me was clean and had a great location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at he the rear of the hotel.

I would thoroughly recommend hotel Doria for any first time (or return) explorer of Amsterdam. The hotel could not be more conveniently located, one minute from Dam Square and about 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal station.

The hotel was very reasonably priced. I paid €210 for 3 nights in a single (small), ensuite room. The rooms are small with single beds but the room was absolutely spotless. You are provided with fresh towels every day.

Breakfast was acceptable. Fresh boiled eggs, bread, and a selection of salad cheese jams marmalades and cold meat were made available along with tea, coffee and fruit juices. Not an extravagant spread by any means but it was more than acceptable.

Check in is available from 1pm and our rooms were ready for us when we arrived. They also offer a small storage cupboard for luggage storage before and after check in/check out if you need it. There are also small electronic safety deposit boxes in every room which came in very handy.

Oh and the showers are amazing.

Superb Location
Great Price
Very clean& staff are very friendly

Id gladly stay at Hotel Doria again and recommend it to anyone travelling to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the rear of the hotel - these ones seem to be a bit quieter.

Overpriced small room with discoloured bedding and pillows that should have been thrown in a skip years ago, window didn't close properly so very noisy and the icing on the cake was the dogs mess at the bottom of the stairs which the staff were oblivious to even though you could smell it in reception. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

The hotel is very centrally located near the Dam Square.
A lot of restaurants around that area.
The hotel is old an the rooms are small. Hygienne wise it is not too bad, but the hotel doesn't give you the feeling of being a place where you want to hang out for too long.
Breakfast is very lousy, but you'll manage if you are not too picky.
The staff of the hotel is nice and hard working.
