We chose Hotel V on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and the fact that it was a short walk to the Sofitel Grand Amsterdam, where we were to link up with friends prior to departing on a river cruise. On the morning of departure, we easily wheeled our luggage over to the Sofitel.
On arrival from Amsterdam Central station the taxi driver dropped us off at the entrance to narrow Nes Street close to Dam Square, explaining that it would be a short walk to Hotel V and he was right. In fact one of the best things about it is the location on a picturesque, quiet "alleyway" free from vehicles but yet right in the center of town. In fact we walked twice to the Red Light District without realizing it.
The staff were extremely nice to us and the rooms and bed very comfortable. The free WiFi worked well. Being from hot Florida, we appreciated the quiet and cool AC. The decor was somewhat quirky "industrial" modern and the hallways painted chocolate brown with a dark carpet, but the room itself was more neutral in tone. There is a good elevator so we didn't have to lug suitcases up the stairs.
The bathroom was nice. The only drawback was water from the shower would flood the bathroom floor with each use. There was no barrier under the glass enclosure to contain the water. We pointed that out to the desk at the end of the stay and hopefully they will find a way to correct it, since this is a newer property.
We didn't eat there so can't comment on the food, but the dining area looked inviting inside and out. The bar graciously provided us with ice each day. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
