“Unique and boutique.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We found this place by looking for novelty digs in the 'Dam. As we were given money towards our honeymoon we decided to treat ourselves to a 5* room and we were not disappointed. If we had been given the room with a swing or piano or bath in the middle of the room we would have been even more stoked BUT the one we had was huge, like an apartment. There was a bath big enough for two, big, soft bed and a sofa and table area near a television that we could get some home channels on.

On different levels there were art installations which were really fab and there was also a little museum explaining the history of the building which was brilliant and just a bit different to have it right where we stayed. There was also a library area to use and chill in.

We were up on the 5th floor and large panes of glass gave us views right down to the dining area. Breakfast was not included in the price and the food was expensive so we only had one breakfast there and stocked up at the supermarket for most of our food!

The tea and coffee facilities were really odd but interesting as they were in cupboards in communal areas. It would have been slightly better if they provided milk sachets there or a fridge but never mind!

The hotel is out of the centre so requires a tram ride to get there but it is easy to hop on and off and we invested in 72 hour passes and used them to get about quite a bit.

Usually we stay in hotels of a higher level in the center of the city. However, the trip was a budget, so we choose this hotel. Uniquely odious hotel. We are not in habit these days of the common bathroom on the floor, although extremely clean! Our room was so tiny, that it was a little more wide than a bed, standing in it. Actually if it were my husband with me, he couldn't feel himself comfortable in there. The location is not bad, quite close to the Central station, views of the canal is great. In general, for those who chose a travel budget, I recommend, at least for the first opinion!

Room Tip: don't forget to question which version of the toilet and the bathroom you will get!

We were slightley skeptical about staying here after reading some of the reviews on here, but in all honesty its completely fine! Short distance into central amsterdam- about €5.60 on tram for 1 hour, i would reccommend spending €7.50 for 24hours if your planning on going back and forth to get changed for evening etc. or you can get a taxi for around €15! The hotel itself, we did have to laugh when we walked into our room, well bathroom! Literally opened the door and bang there was the toilet! Then leads into bedroom which was quite small considering we we upgraded to a 2* for an extra €100 but we only upgraded because i wasnt too keen on the shared bathroom situation. The bar staff were lovely, friendly and always happy to help! Basically to some it all up- its fine to stay here, a cleaner comes daily and makes bed etc, its pricey but so is everywhere else!, there is no kettle etc in your room but go up to very top floor and there are facillities there. Dont judge this hotel from all the bad reviews because a lot of people over exaggerate!!! We were very happy customers :)

Though on the 3rd floor I never found the lift but it didn't matter. The stairways to nowhere gave me a chance to discover this amazing and beautifully preserved building.
Restaurant serves an imaginative menu, I had good Monkfish and breakfasts (though dear for a buffet @€15) were enjoyable.
My room 318 had a lot of wasted space and few hangers in two double wardrobes.
But you star at Lloyd for atmosphere.

This hotel is fabulous! Wonderful exterior and interior, great design, cosy living room feel to it with couches and rugs in one corner of the restaurant. Just beautiful, lots of character. The rooms are all unique and have great design features. Our beds were too warm for the time of year, woke up all sweaty. But there's a shower, so... The breakfast buffet is very costly but insanely nice. We decided to go for it after all, because it looked so good. Would absolutely book here again! Since all the rooms are different, let the personnel know if there's something you don't feel comfortabel with. They are super nice and will find another room for you with different features.

Room Tip: Let the hotel know if you're NOT a couple, many rooms have a bath or shower facilities without p...

We (2 Adults and 2 Toddlers ages 2 + 1) stayed at the Lloyd hotel in room 607 which is one of the 5 Star suites, this room has a bath in the middle of the room, which the toddlers loved! and a swing which we had to take down to stop accidents.... The view of the clock tower in the morning is also very nice and the surrounding area was also very pleasant. The bed has to be one of the most comfortable beds I have laid in! So much so I think we need to change our mattress at home.
For a “5" star room we were a bit disappointed with the TV, lack of in room tea and coffee making facilities (or bigger cups at the on floor facilities would have been nice) and a lock on the bathroom would have been handy to stop little hands entering while you are trying to have a shower. If you want luxury surrounding this might not be for you. These were only minor things on an otherwise excellent stay.
There is some noise from outside from the trams and bars but no more then expected, and we had no problems with us or the toddlers sleeping through the night. I am quite glad we were out from the centre a bit as I believe it would have been noisier further in town.
The Hotel is a 20min walk with a pram from central station, or a quick tram ride, the I Amsterdam card was well worth buying for attractions and transport we used, saved at least 30 Euros per person.
The food from the Hotels restaurant was lovely, we really enjoyed our evening meal and breakfast was also great.
The hotel staff were very helpful and understood how much of a handful 2 toddlers can be and was very patient with us at times, the staff made sure that 2 baby beds were in the room and also a baby bath just little things that make you feel welcome. They were also very helpful with my questions over Facebook and responded very quickly.

In all a great stay at the hotel, we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if we return to Amsterdam.

This hotel tries to sell a minimum of comfort and atmosphere as a "design experience". I got a room on the 6th floor that felt like a prison cell: small, cold, no decoration, worn furniture, a tiny tv set from around 1979 (vintage, I assume), no curtains, cables and pipes, concrete floor, poor lightning, no minibar, no water cooker/coffee, no safe, no,wardrobe, .... . Only two features were really top class: the bed was super comfortable and the free wifi was fast and immediately accessible (no password, ...).

Dear Pascal,
Thank you for your review and taking the time to share your experience. We are happy to read that you thought the bed and the fast Wi-Fi network was top class. Communal tea and coffee facilities are available on the 6th floor. Guests are welcome to use the safes located on the ground floor. We regret not making these opportunities clearer to you during your stay. The Lloyd Hotel attracts a very diverse clientele, therefore none of the rooms are the same – each of them are entirely unique. We understand that you may have better enjoyed one of our other rooms. We are always happy to reallocate guests to other rooms if they are available. We hope to welcome you again in the future in a room you will surely love.
Kind regards, The Lloyd Team
