If you seek a cookie-cutter business hotel, I suggest you look elsewhere. If you're open to charm, quirkiness, impeccable service, great food & a comfortable bed, then read on. I stayed in 2 different rooms at the Lloyd in May-June 2013. First, I shared room 419 (2 stars) with a friend. This room (picture included) is large, but extremely spartan. Its walls consisted of white tiles. The shower was literally in the middle of the room, sort of a bummer if you value privacy. My roommate used it, then mopped up the puddle from the floor (mop provided). I opted to use the less-than-convenient shower in the communal bathroom down the hall (picture also included) & would've appreciated hooks & a shelf/table for towels, toiletries, etc. Fortunately, our bed was heavenly & we slept like logs. When my husband & children arrived, I moved to 4-star-room 211, which, I was told, is the hotel's only apartment. This unit consists of 2 rooms, a kitchen & a huge bathroom with a very long tub. All 4 of us were very comfortable. We ate only breakfast at the Lloyd, which was superb, & enjoyed easy access to Centraal Station (via tram #26) & Museumplein (via tram #10). The hotel has a number of communal areas filled with couches, books & tables. My children (ages 10 & 6) enjoyed exploring them. I took advantage of them to work late into the night while my family slept. Whether I return to Amsterdam for business or pleasure, I'd definitely go back to a a 3+ star room at the Lloyd Hotel.
