“Pleasant 3* Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Read the excellent Review by Daniel D further below for details - suffice to say I had a perfectly pleasant single night stay at this hotel.

Free tea and coffee at the bar/lounge area (with a great open fire arrangement) - very friendly and helpful staff.

I did have an issue on check-in - they sorted it out with good humour and moved me to a better room at once. How people react when there's a problem - that's the sign of a good place!

Don't expect too many luxuries - no room service, nothing too lush, but still perfectly comfortable and good value.

Room Tip: Bear in mind the rooms are smaller than you might expect - the Loft option looks really good value.

We stayed in a large double. The room was not the biggest, but fine for a weekend. Would not book a standard room that is even smaller.The decor was nice. Specially liked the lobby with the fireplace. Good service at the front desk. Needed help to print a voucher, got fast service. Breakfast is included and plentyful.

So, where shall I begin. Yesterday was my birthday and me and my girlfriend planned to go to Amsterdam for a day or two. Hotel V (Frederiksplein) seemed like the perfect option. Both locationwise- and it sure looks beautiful when you scroll through the different photo's online. Luckily our high expactations were matched by a great stay!

When we arrived (late: 11PM) the night watchman was really helpfull and although we know our way in and around Amsterdam- he insisted to speak on some typical tourist hotspots. Most of which he disliked, because it was overrated he sayed. He made some jokes, we laughed about it.

When we entered our room (Loft V1) we were welcomed by a birthday note of the Hotel V crew (how lovely, thanks guys & girls!). The room was spacious and looked amazing. We absolutely love vintage material- so the living room chairs were a big plus and the old school globe bar was a great home accessory. It was not 'too much' of a vintage-orientated room though. It had a nice kitchen and practical closet. We enjoyed the living room fireplace before we went to sleep. There is some noise outside (public transport, tram), but it doesn't bother much (there are earplugs available in your room, if you disagree). Last but not least... The rain shower, perfect.

The breakfast was not too extensive, but it had pretty much every (basic) food you wish for in the morning.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Hotel V (Frederiksplein) and would recommend it to everyone that's interested. The location is also spot on- as it offers you great streets by walking distance (Utrechtsestraat, Albert Cuypstraat (market) and the Rijksmuseum at 1KM walking distance). We would definitely book again.

Location is absolutely amazing: trams, city center, shops, cafés etc are in a walking distance. Room is very small, but stylish. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. Good breakfast, very friendly stuff.

Last november I stayed in the cornerloft in Hotel V Frederiksplein. It was a an amazing experience since you can overlook the city from your bed. It felt like a home and I could instantly move in if I had have to. Had a really fun time in Amsterdam with my friend and this was definitely one of the factors that made the trip as good as it was.

Chose this for location and price. Rooms are smaller than expected and in an older Amsterdam building which means sloping floors, drafty windows and hearing every activity in the hallway. Noise from the trams, although expected, was a lot less than expected. Breakfast was good, simple but more than sufficient. Bathroom had a noisy ventilator that would not turn off and no evidence that the hotel staff looked into my complaint about it. All in all an average experience with a good location but I won't be coming back.

The rooms are indeed small but so is the relative price. Stayed in a XL room which had an excellent bed. Breakfast is included which is nice but parking is painful as only expensive parking garages are around. The hotel is 10 min from the museums and 15 min from the heart of amsterdam. Public transportation and also bikes easy to get to. Will stay again next time in Amsterdam.
