“A great hotel with fantastic potential once complete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I booked this hotel knowing that it was brand new and not quite finished. It is going to be an amazing place and very popular as the years go on.
The hotel has an adventurous vibe and very friendly staff, easy check in and out and well priced food. What more could you need!

There are just small things missing like a bedroom bin, a bath mat for the floor, the printed privacy screen for the glass between the bathroom and bedroom. Large screws sticking out of the wall which we used as towel holders but I assume is going to be for a bathroom shelf.
I had thought the air con didn't work but it would seem it's synced with the windows and won't work unless they are firmly closed, a very sensible design but not something I'd ever come across.

The bar is great and whilst we were there we got to celebrate the World Cup quarter final, we got out of the lift to go out and were greeted by a very long queue of locals waiting to get up to our bar. We didn't realise this place was so popular and very quickly changed our plans and went back to the 7th floor (without queuing, thanks to the kind reception lady as we were residents).

We didn't get as far as the hot tub on the 8th floor.

Overall this is a great place, it isn't 100% ready yet but I knew that before I got here. They offered an unbeatable price and they're 8 minutes on the metro to Central amsterdam, I took a chance with Volkshotel and I'm so glad I did. I will be recommending this hotel and will certainly stay again.

Room Tip: There is a small amount of traffic noise in the front rooms but it wasn't anything to wake us up
