“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This hotel was in a perfect location near to the city centre - we could walk everywhere. The staff were very helpful and welcoming even when we arrived from a long haul flight at 6am!The "small Amsterdam" breakfast is a must. Highly recommend.

A great hotel for the design aficionado with its industrial styled interiors. We didn't take the package with the breakfast option but found that to be a big regret. Its french toast with cinnamon butter is to die for!!

It is situated in a quiet lane that is walking distance to the main city square and the infamous red light district. You'll find a quaint little cafe just round the corner that serves up a wide selection of pastries and desserts.

The rooms are very cozy - its bed and pillows surprisingly comfortable. The toilet was well equipped with a rain shower plus a regular faucet.

The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful, and if I may add, good-looking.

I would definitely recommend all boutique hotel lovers to give this a try!

Recently enjoyed a night at the Hotel V Nesplein. Great location, wonderful staff and amazing breakfast. Our room was quite large and quiet. The one problem we did have was with the lighting...there were definite dark areas in the room making it difficult to use the safe or the coffee maker. We did mention this to the staff who did take note of the problem. The bathroom, though large, could have used a shelf or two for toiletries. The decor throughout was fun and edgy. Love the wall coverings in the elevator. Also had a great dinner at their restaurant. Would definitely recommend the hotel

We stayed here for 2 nights and for the price it was exceptionally good. Reception was efficient and friendly. Double room was spacious and well equipped. The bed was extremely comfortable. It was situated in a quiet street but in the centre of the town within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go.

If you are looking for a very good hotel right in the heart of Amsterdam, this place may just be what you are looking for. We stayed here in July 2013 with the hotel just open for about a month or so.
This 4-star hotel is in a relatively quiet side street of the Dam square (the center of the city). The lobby is decorated with a giant chandelier and connects to the restaurant/bar. The hotel also has an pleasant outside terrace to the side of the hotel.

Rooms have a normal size and are nicely decorated. Beds are very comfortable. Our room faced the front of the hotel, but thanks to the double glazing we had no trouble sleeping. Both rooms and hallways are protected with a keycard, so only accessible for guests. The bathroom again was of normal size with a great rain-shower.

Opposite the hotel are the offices of one of Hollands leading newspaper (NRC) and further down the street are some restaurants, bars and small theaters. The hotels is just a few minutes walking distance from the more touristy areas (Dam square (Royal Palace), Rembrandt square (cafes) and the Red Light district), but seems like a small island of tranquility amidst all the busy surrounding areas.

Our room did not include breakfast, but a variety is available downstairs at reasonable prices. Rooms are not cheap, but if you are looking for a quality stay in the heart of Amsterdam this may just be it...

Booked this hotel on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews. Easy to find, approx 20 minutes' walk from Central Station, Nes is a narrow street leaving the southeast corner of Dam Square.

Immediate impression is of a quirky place, oversized chandelier in reception, theatre bill wallpaper, dark corridors. Our room was at the rear on the first floor, outlook on to a roof and opposing wall which had been decorated with pot plants. We didnt feel we could leave the window open as other rooms shared the same outlook. However, the air-conditioning worked well so no need. Note there are no controls for this in the room so you are at the mercy of the management, but the room temperature was fine throughout our stay.

The bedroom was minimalist in style but bed was large & comfortable, lighting OK. The industrial-style clothes storage mentioned in previous reviews actually works quite well; at least you are unlikely to leave anything behind.

Bathroom was stylish in a stark sort of way, shiny white bath contrasting with matt black sink and loo. The walk-in rainfall shower was really appreciated after a day's sightseeing.

We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant (The Lobby) and also had dinner there one night. Food was excellent on all occasions and was served by very friendly, cheerful staff. One tip would be not to pay upfront for breakfast as that covers the "full Amsterdam" option and we were more than satisfied by the "small Amsterdam".

Our only negative observation was the building work from next door which interrupted our attempted lie-in. The V management were most apologetic and had tried hard to keep noise to a minimum.

So, overall, a very comfortable stay and we would have no hesitation in returining.

Room Tip: Room 112, at back of hotel was quiet at night

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon, when we arrived, our room wasn't ready yet (we were a little early for 2pm check in) and were offered to have a drink in the bar. About 20 minutes later the lovely lady from the reception yold us that our rooms were ready and that our bags had already been taken up. We mentioned while we were checking in that it was a honeymoon and when we entered there was 2 hearts of rose petals on the bed. The staff also gave us a map and highlighted all the areas of Amsterdam that we may be interested in.

The room was quite large and well decorated, in fact the decor of the whole hotel is awesome. The bathroom was large and the shower is huge. If I had one criticism of the room it would be that it was a little dark.

We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant "The Lobby" on most days and it was excellent. The bar/restaurant was far superior to most found at hotels and i would recommend it even as a stand alone dining experience. We probably had the best meal we ate in Amsterdam in the restaurant for dinner one evening, it was also really good value for money (30ish Euro's for 3 courses can't remember the exact cost)

The area the hotel is in is great with plenty of theatres and bars and the hotel is 5 minutes walk from most of the main attractions.

Overall an excellent experience and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.
