My husband and I stayed at Hotel V for 7 nights in July and had a very pleasant experience. Staff was very accommodating, friendly, and even made recommendations on restaurants and activities during our stay. Hotel is very close to Dam Square and public transportation, which we never even used because it was still a comfortable walking distance from historical sites like the Rembrandt museum and Anne Frank house. We reserved a suite since we were staying for a week and wanted to be comfortable, and we definitely felt we got our money's worth on space, especially for a hotel in Europe. The hotel restaurant food was good, and the atmosphere outside the courtyard was really fun. On any given day you could see an impromptu Jazz concert or just enjoy the mild and cool July weather. We even watched a few world cup games while we were there and it was great interacting with the Dutch locals.
There were only two major drawbacks to this hotel: one, the lighting was very dark and needed mild updating decor wise, but I think it is supposed to fit the overall "antique" image of Hotel V. The other is that after a day of sightseeing in Amsterdam, neither one of us felt like staying out late and found late night activities at the hotel limiting. The restaurant closes at 11 and there weren't any English language movie channels that weren't saturated with commercials. That part might be beyond the hotel's control, but that is the first time I have stayed outside the US and had so few cable options. Some of the channels were out of service. Just to keep in mind for those who are not into the late night bar or nightclub scene. Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable experience and would definitely stay at Hotel V again on our next trip to Amsterdam.
