“Has the most helpfull, friendly staff of any hotel I have ever stayed in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I have stayed in countless hotels worldwide, and you usually find some very helpfull individuals working there, but this hotel was unique in that EVERYONE seemed to bend over backwards to be as helpful as possible.This is why I have given the hotel 5 stars, even though there are a couble of small niggles which could be improved.
Location. About as central as you could want. Maybe 150 mtr from the Dam Sq. Easy walk from Central station (Although not with a wheelie case as the cobbled streets play havoc with them). 5 mins from historic 'Red Light District'
Down a side street, so lovely and quiet despite being central.
The room was a good size. Large, very comfortable bed. The 2 rather unusual looking chairs were far more comfortable than they looked. The decor is 'Modern' and a couple of things would have been better if slightly less so. No resting space for toothbrushes etc by the side of the wash basin- pleanty of room underneath, but thats not where I want it. Electric sockets were hidden low down, rather than conveniently located mid wall.
Sepperate shower was excellent. Bath was large, but I did'nt use it.
Restaurant is very good, although not cheap. Breakfast is 'a la carte' I would have prefered a buffet. Wifi works well.
Definitely a place I would repeat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights at this new boutique hotel in early May. The location was great, near DAM square yet without the noise.

The room we were given was huge! Lots of space to go around, unfortunately that also meant the floor was a little dusty at times even though house cleaning took place every day but not a biggy for us.

The front desk was very helpful in assisting us in our queries (transport directions, sourcing for shops/restaurants and purchasing of tickets)

The restaurant was fantastic! I simply loved the food there both times I had my meals there.

All in all a wonderful stay. Would be back there should I visit Amsterdam again. :)

I am a big fan of Hotel V having stayed at the Frederiksplein Hotel many, many times. As luck would have it the Frederiksplein Hotel was full which prompted me to try this new offering. The owner Jan has outdone himself. The location is excellent for the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, close to Kalverstraat ( great shopping ), Dam Square, Negen Straatjes and a good offering of Bistros, Cafe's etc. The rooms are huge by European Standards and it has a Chic yet Vintage Feel. The bathrooms are stark but in a nice way, with a fabulous rain shower. The overall feel of the hotel is decidedly vintage but with a modern twist. So no surprise that I spotted quite a few Amsterdam Fashionistas enjoying the Hotel Restaurant. The Restaurant prices are good value for money - certainly not a rip off and I enjoyed all the courses I had. Hotel V Nesplein benefits from the very friendly vibe of the staff ( same as Frederiksplein ) - They are helpful and seriously knowledgeable about what's happening in Amsterdam. If you want a groovy stay in Amsterdam, select this joint.

Room Tip: I always select rooms on a high floor. I was allocated a corner room which was great.

We were impressed by the hotel from arrival, the staff were really nice. We were put in a room with two single beds pushed together so rang reception and said we had booked a double, so they moved us straight away.
Once in our room it was clean and stylish.
The hotel was very central.

Being just off Dam Square, the location of Hotel V Nesplein couldn't be better. The rooms are very minimalistic, think 'new york loft' rather than clinical. Great walk in shower with Rainfall Head. Complimentary toiletries and hairdryer. Everything you could need.

Staff were extremely helpful. Check-in process was quick and efficient. The bar and breakfast service was of an equally high standard. Please note it's more continental then full cooked, but they serve you a choice of breads, soft boiled egg, fruit and cereal, was all very nice.

Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. No complaints.
