“Amsterdam in 3 days!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Excellent value for money with very friendly and helpful staff! Great location and easy access to public transport. Rooms a little bit small but clean. This hotel is great for couples of all ages who wishes to explore Amsterdam from early till late and then sleep somewhere safe, clean and quiet to recharge your batteries for the next days round of adventure!

Stayed here for 3 nights for our trip to Amsterdam. On arriving we had to pay city tax which was about €20. We booked this hotel through easyjet and it was classed as 4*. We stayed in a double room which was a bit small but ideal just to sleep and shower for me and the girlfriend. The room was clean, Shower was brilliant, Wifi in the hotel was free. They had a restaurant/food area which we never tried. Tram stop was outside hotel no.25 goes to central station 15 min journey. Hotel was just a short tram journey to Amsterdam.

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

It is a good hotel. A little bit expensive and the breakfast was not inclusive in the price which was aa down side of it. Rooms were clean and quiet. Probably we got the rooms on the old side of the hotel and those seem to be smaller. There is a tram line just in front of the hotel which takes you in 15 minutes to the centre. We tried walking and it gets you there in 25 minutes. Very nice service.

Room Tip: better on the new side.

I did not book directly with the hotel. Booked 2 rooms online and encountered some surprises upon check in. When I booked the room I thought my credit card was charged but there was only a hold put on the card. I had to pay for the rooms on arrival and the exchange rate was higher and resulted in an additional $40 dollars. The website indicated that there was parking available. Yes there is but it is about a 20 minute tram ride and walk or expensive hourly parking on the street near the hotel that was always full. We took the tram to the parking and had to drag our suitcases to and from the hotel. The parking garage was 16 euros. The rooms were clean and modern. The bathroom had European style tub/shower, toiletries, and a hairdryer. Our room faced the street with the tram so there was some noise when the tram was operating. Breakfast was 15 euros and was adequate. There were restaurants and shops near the hotel. A large flea market is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. You can buy a day pass for the tram and it was easy to get to the town center by tram. Hop on hop off buss stop was a short walk from the hotel and a great way to see Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel to avoid surprises. Do not take a car.

Stayed at the Savoy for 2 nights on business. Good location with clean presentable rooms. Check in fast and efficient with all wifi details given. Room very clean and fresh with view over street. No noise nuisance. Breakfast was adequate with a good choice but a more powerful toaster would be useful.
Check out had no problem.
All in all the stay was good value compared to other locales and would certainly have no problems in recommending or staying there again.

Arrival: Check in was simple and the member of staff friendly.

Car Parking: As we had arrived by car we were informed that since it was Easter street parking would be free until 9.00am on the Tuesday. The hotel has no private parking. Parking turned out to be 2.5km away at the Olympic Stadium. The up side was parking was €8 for 24 hours plus a return tram ticket for each person in the car, there was still a 500m or so walk to the hotel at the end of the tram ride OK no big deal in the way of a walk but a nuisance. If you stay in Amsterdam it would be best not to take a car. If you want to see the bulb fields and the Keukenhoff Gardens by car then think about near by Haarlem. There is a tram stop just outside the hotel will take you to the city centre, just buy your ticket on the tram.

Room: A little small but very clean and well looked after. The room had a TV, twin beds, a safe and a mini fridge but no tea / coffee making facilities – for that you had to go down to the lounge/breakfast room. The shower was over the bath which while it worked well is something I dislike because of all the climbing in and out but again the room was very clean. The bedroom had a small “balcony” shared with another room that provided a view over the back gardens of the surrounding buildings. Somewhere to go to check the weather but little else, it didn't even provide much light to the room.

Food: Self-service breakfast which was OK but nothing special, choice of cereals, cold meat, fruit (some fresh some tinned). The hot food was scrambled egg – a little over done, beans, and sausages etc't., didn't try them so can't comment on the quality. Various breads were available along with croissants. The toaster was of the light domestic variety and took too so long to do anything I was loosing the will to live and settled for scrambled eggs on warm bread. Orange juice from a machine, coffee from a machine, which was very good... what does it say about the place if everyone talks about how good the coffee machine was? The breakfast room itself was clean but a bit too utilitarian for 4 stars.

Want and evening meal? Not available. For anything other than breakfast or snacks you have to leave the hotel (this is 4 star remember). Fortunately the street has many good restaurants to choose from but on a wet night with the temperature at 5C it would have been nice to have the choice to eat in the hotel.

Checkout was as easy as checking in but I was a bit miffed having to lug the cases into the car while two members of the staff stood smoking. Perhaps I was expecting too much from a 4 star hotel.
