“Nice hotel in the heart of Dam Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Nice hotel in the heart of Dam Square. Easy walking distance to many touristy areas of the city. The bed and linens were absolutely lovely! Room was on the small side, but it had a comfy king bed. We did book a "Comfort" room so if you require something larger opt for the "Superior" room. The shower had a huge rain shower head, plus a hand held unit as well so it was just wonderful taking a shower. We did eat in the restaurant and enjoyed what we ordered. We also enjoyed cappuccino's in the library and a beer in their outside sitting area, adjacent to the restaurant. All very good. The staff were very accommodating and helpful in the restaurant and front desk. Since our room faced the office building and the small alley/street that runs between it and the hotel there was some people noise at night. It seems to be used as a through way by pedestrians and cyclists going to Dam Square, but it wasn't a problem for me or my husband, we slept like babies. Amsterdam is a fascinating city and this hotel fits right in with it's different look and feel. We are in our late 60's and we loved. it!

Room Tip: Choose a Superior room if you need more space. A comfort room would suit one person or two very thin...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The hotel was perfectly placed for reaching all the main tourist attractions. Having looked at the menu we decided not to eat in the restaurant but were given recommendations of other restaurants which overall were good. Service at breakfast was a little slow but breakfast was very good. I chose the 'Small Amsterdam' which although simple suited me fine and my partner had scrammbled eggs with smaked salmon on a couple of days and then Eggs Benedict...very good and largish quantities! Our room was ok and it was great to have tea/coffee making facilities (pity abou all the herbal teas when all I wanted was a good old cup of Assam!). The room looked straight into offices where the lights were kept on all night but this did not really cause a problem and there was very little noise at night. The room although not large was adequate but only had one bedside table (unfortunately on my partner's sleeping side) but I managed to resolve this by putting the small metal chair that was in the room on my side of the bed!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Hotel V Nesplein. That's a very good tip about having a table on both sides of the bed- I will pass that on to the management!
Thanks again, and hope to welcome you back soon!

I choose this hotel, like many others, thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. Our hotel room was great and I would be happy to return. I'd give the design a five-star review, but some service and sound issues make it a four-star review from me. The hotel's urban chic, minimalist style is very well done, both aesthetically and functionally. The bed and linens were very comfortable, the bathtub my all-time favorite and all the other aspects of our room were pleasing. There was only one window, so the room was a bit dark, but the view out was onto a sweet wall garden and the window opened, another plus. I had asked for a quiet room and the hotel kindly sorted that out for us. our room generally was very quiet with the exception of being awakened our first night around 3 am by a nearby couple talking. This went on for a couple of hours and I wasn't able to determine if it was due to too little sound-proofing between the walls or because we had opened our window for fresh air. In any case, I really enjoyed our room, which also had plenty of space. Service at the hotel restaurant, where we had dinner one night, was great, but the food was very average unfortunately. I won't be in a hurry to eat there again. Reception staff are nice, but for a four-star hotel could improve on some service points. One suggestion is to get a phone system that allows you to place guests on hold rather than answering the phone with a "just a second", placing the phone down on the counter and then keeping the guest waiting for five minutes. And have more than one person attending to reception. All in all a good stay and I really liked this hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Hotel V Nesplein! It's nice to hear that you enjoyed the room, and regarding The Lobby food, I would like to point out that the menu changes almost seasonally, so if you are ever around it would be lovely to have you back and see if anything new on the menu would entice you! The kitchen staff is always welcome to hearing feedback on the dishes!
And as for reception, you are correct- there is a better way to put someone on hold! So sorry about that. We will make sure that all staff follow protocol.


Kind Regards,
Amanda

We didn't realise this was a brand-new hotel when we booked online - we just got a great deal, so to find that we'd also found possibly the perfect city centre hotel was one great big bonus. Fantastic public areas, quirky stylish design, and a location in a quiet street just two minutes from the main square coupled with really helpful, laid-back-but-totally-professional and friendly staff let us know as soon as we arrived that we'd landed on our feet. The rooms did not disappoint either! Cool decor, big shower with great water pressure, really comfortable beds - and decently sound-proofed big windows - win, win, win!

Congratulations on a great place and wishing the team all success in their first summer season.

Room Tip: We liked our room on a higher floor and looking onto the Nesplein.

Had a great stay at this hotel, staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel and rooms were well fitted out and modern. The hotel interior designers have done a great job fitting it out. Location is excellent, not far from the action but on a quiet street. Wifi worked well and the rooms and bed was spacious. Free water was provided every day which was a nice touch.
Only minor negative, the rooms don't have a minibar fridge, which can be a little frustrating. Also the room is fairly dark but looks directly into the office across the street so it's hard to open up all the curtains and let some more light in.
Can't make any comments on the bar or restaurant but it was full both nights we were there so that was a good sign.
Make sure you write down the address because some taxi drivers didn't know of this hotel yet.
Overall, had a great stay here and would recommend it highly. Positives greatly outweighed any negatives.

Thank you for your review!
I will pass on your suggestion of a minibar fridge in the room to the management. Perhaps that is something that we can work on adding in the future.

Kind Regards, and hope to welcome you back soon!

This new hotel is perfectly located in the old town, in a quiet street lined with little independent theaters just off the busy Rokin. The palace on the Dam square is a mere two minute walk away; the central station 10 minutes. The staff at reception and restaurant is friendly. The interior is an eclectic mix of brownish retro-modern stuff; nice. I was upgraded to suite 202, a large and quiet corner room with lots of windows, large bathroom, retro furniture, a large Samsung tv with internet function, free wifi (fast enough), coffee machine. Nice bed. All very clean. Very good. Difficult to find the airco but I couldn't be bothered too much, it was quiet enough to open one of the many windows. The hotel has no buffet style but a menu breakfast, which was good and reasonably prices (though not cheap). I already liked the other Hotel V (avoid the cheapest basement rooms there) near Frederiksplein, but this is roomier and (even) better located.

Just arrived home after a three night stay in Amsterdam.

We received a warm welcome at Reception and were offered lots of advise about the city.

Our room was very clean, modern and comfortable. Free wi-fi during our stay which was reliable and fast.

We did not eat in the restaurant as we never tend to do during our city breaks. However we did spend the end of one evening enjoying a night cap in the bar. We found the bar staff both friendly and attentive.

The hotel is located just off Dam Square. Very central and close to all the action but not a noisy location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
