“Modern Hotel in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hotel V is in a quiet location just a 10 min walk from Rembrandt Square. It is in a quieter part of the city and also has a tram stop just outside.
The reception area and rooms are very modern. The furnishings and design are really nice with a big gold bulldog in reception and deer vases.
I stayed in the main building- as the Hotel also has a separate building where some rooms are. The rooms are small but adequate. There was not much room around the bed but when you are in Amsterdam you are there to explore the city, not be in your room so that did not matter.
The bathroom had a powerful shower and was also modern in design. The room has a hairdryer but not coffee and tea facilities. The room did get very hot but there was a large fan in the room which helped.
Breakfast was served from 7 am and is continental consisting of pastries, meats, cheeses, fruit etc.
I would really recommend this Hotel for a city break due to it's location and interior! : )

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel, yes the rooms are on the small side, we upgraded to a larger room. What do you expect in a city ? We had two lovely big windows which looked out over the street ,a comfy bed and a modern bathroom with shower.Rooms were very clean with good quality linen and towels. There is no coffee/tea facilities in the room, but anytime of the day until 12pm the hotel serves free tea/coffee in the very comfortable lounge area. A very nice way to end our day of sightseeing chatting with friends and watching the cyclists and trams go by. Breakfast is served in this area with a lot of choice except if you like a full English breakfast,which we did not want.The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We found most places walkable with a 10min tram to the station outside hotel. Restaurants were close enough to walk with excellent choice of food for any budget. A great bar opposite the hotel where we watched the Brazil / Croatia football match which pleased our husbands. The canal ring is round the corner from the hotel with plenty of bars . We really enjoyed our stay here and would like to return one day.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a larger room, although be aware these rooms are still on the small side.

I honestly have no idea where other reviewers are used to staying, but this hotel is really just a glorified hostel. I knew the rooms would be small, but wow, for claiming to be a 3-star hotel and charging over 200 Euros per room per night it should have least had a few amenities. I honestly have no idea how they qualified for a 3-star rating. Even cheap hotels like Travelodge have a little coffee pot or electric kettle to make tea or coffee in your room, and I don't think it would ever cost more than 100 per night. A little minibar with some water and peanuts maybe? In my perfect world there would have been a bathtub, but apparently it's a tubless hotel. We also couldn't check in until nearly 30 minutes after checkin time, and even though we'd made our reservations months in advance, we ended up on different floors. We thought the complimentary breakfast might make up for it, but not if you hoped for anything other than some pillsbury croissants, cold cuts, and hard-boiled eggs that were impossible to unshell. Bottom line, this would all be fine if they made it clear that's what you're supposed to expect, but they made it out to be more than it is, and then charged accordingly.

The hotel is well located inside the canal ring, away from the noise but close enough to the squares where you can find lots of bars and restaurants.

We booked a basement room because we were only staying for the weekend and we didn't intend to spend much time there. However, upon arrival, we were very disappointed.

The room was very, very small, with barely enough space to put the baggage or even stand up. The space issue was manageable but the most annoying thing was the noise. The room walls were paper thin and we could literally hear everything that was going on the corridor and the other rooms.

The best thing about our stay was the breakfast. There was plenty of choice and everything was very tasty.

Overall, the hotel was good but the room let it down a lot. I would definitely recommend to stay away from the basement rooms.

Only a 10 minute direct tram ride form the central station and a leisurely stroll into the central areas or around the canals to the major sites, this hotel has location. Restaurants are a couple of minutes walk away, bars by the canal side similarly. It is for those who prefer to to step outside without confronting the crowds of tourists that hover around Dam Square. We chose a superior room and enjoyed the extra space that provided. But the cost was excellent value as were the buffet style breakfasts - well worth getting those in the deal. The place has a fresh and lively feel with high standard of decoration. Service was relaxed, friendly but efficient.

This boutique style hotel is just a ten minute tram journey from the centre of Amsterdam and convenient for many of the city's main attractions. The standard double room in which we stayed was small but more than adequate for a three night short break. It was stylishly decorated and furnished and the bed was very very comfortable. The shower room was well fitted out and stylish and kept absolutely spotless. Our deal included breakfast which is served in a stylish lobby which includes the reception area, bar, and lounge area. Breakfast was typically continental and offered a wide range of rolls, bread, delicious croissants and cold meats and cheese. The staff are young and enthusiastic and really keen to help guests get the most of their stay. They made is feel particularly welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't have faulted any aspect of our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others. We will certainly return to Hotel V on our next visit to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, you might want to ask for a room away from the front of the hotel whe...
