“Lots to commend it but .....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Not my taste. Firstly though the staff are very friendly and efficient in both the hotel and the restaurant. The room we had (comfort) was clean certainly and had good amenities such as bath robe and tassimo coffee maker. Drinking water supplied daily is great. However the decor is gloomy and uninspiring in the room and very very dark in the corridor. Meant to be atmospheric no doubt. The design of the tea and coffee station in particular is poor and I scalded myself because the power point for the kettle is too far from the desk. The mirrors in the bathroom are very high. I am very short I know and the Dutch are tall but even so . I hadn't noticed there is no air con. On the positive the restaurant was busy but service and food were good the night we used it. The location is really great.

Great location. 10 minutes walk from amsterdam central train station. Modern stylish hotel, extremely clean, and comfortable if sparse in style, storage and decor in the rooms but it seems to work. Great bathroom and shower.

Well worth booking the breakfast deal on line as part of the deal as the food is excellent.

The lobby restaurant is the only public space so if you need a quiet place for work etc outside your room it can be difficult at busy times. Wifi however is free and works everywhere in the hotel with no issue

Only niggle is service in the lobby restaurant is a bit hit and miss. Mind you this lackadaisical service is amsterdam wide perhaps because tipping is uncommon. So it's not hotel V specific

Lots of good restaurants within 2 minutes walk. The beer and chicken restaurant 1minute south of the hotel was great.

Overall a great choice if you like casual, busy, younger clientele ( in outlook ) non chain quirky hotels with no stuffiness.

This is the third time I've stayed here on business and I still cannot fault it. The only downside is that the restaurant is now so popular that you have to book it in advance! To be fair they did manage to squeeze us in without a booking and it is still delicious. Stay here, it's great!

So happy that you are having a nice time on your visits to Hotel v Nesplein! Next time you make a reservation for a room, let us know if you want to book a table at The Lobby too, and we will do our best to snag you a table in advance! The Lobby is very popular, which is nice, but we also want our hotel guests to experience it as well as Amsterdammers!

Hotel V was recommended to me by a colleague and I would recommend it to others too. The staff is very nice and helpful and the location is perfect.

The decor feels to be right from Restoration Hardware. The rooms are relatively spacious and well appointed. There are a lot of nice small details. Super comfortable bath robes too!

Definitely eat at the restaurant at Hotel V. It is great and frequented by locals. During the day you can use the cozy corner of the restaurant to work or just lounge on the couches, which is nice.

Hello! Thank you for the review of the restaurant, but The Lobby Bar & Restaurant has its own tripadvisor profile. This is just for the hotel & rooms....
But we do hope that you stay with us some time!
Until then...

What's special about Hotel V is that each and every member of staff make you feel as though you're a guest in their own home. This is delivered through attentive, thoughtful, enthusiastic and friendly service from every single employee. Add to that great design, location and restaurant and Hotel V makes an excellent place to stay.

Had an enjoyable stay here over the weekend and found the hotel and staff to be top notch! Very close to the heart of Amsterdam, will recommend to friends! Food was excellent in restaurant and there was a good selection of rum which was an added bonus for me...
