“Great Staff & Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I spent two days at Hotel V. We had a basement room, which was super small yet super cheap, so it did the trick. If you want to stay somewhere out of the madness of the red light district, Hotel V is the place to stay. There is a tram stop across the street that will bring you downtown very quickly, or if you're active like we are, it's a nice 20-30 minute walk. Really nice neighborhood that has a huge market a few blocks away.

The best part of Hotel V was the staff. I wish I had caught the gentleman's name that helped us throughout our stay as he was so friendly and helpful. He really went above and beyond with recommendations and pointing out where everything was on a map. One of the most helpful hotel employees I've ever come across. Finally, they had a very solid breakfast selection - lots of fruit, deli meats, cereal, etc. We very highly recommend Hotel V - especially if you can snag one of their very cheap basement rooms.

Just got back from 3 night stay; very modern, clean, chic hotel only 10 mins from main canal rings, very central!
Staff very friendly, willing to give lots of advice on places to go, order taxis etc. 24 hour too which helps if you want to leave your key!
Yes room was fairly small but perfectly kitted out (TV, toiletries, safe, beautiful decor, amazingly comfy bed) and greeted with an array of rose petals which was cute! More than enough space for 2 people to get ready etc. Cleaned everyday.
Chill out area with couch, magazines.
Continental buffet in the morning which is an added bonus for the price! Cereals, cheeses, meats, eggs, pastries, peanut butter, Nutella, fruit, coffee, teas etc.
Lots of gorgeous bars/restaurants and upmarket shops close by on the walk up to canals.
First time in Amsterdam we found it perfectly located - 10 min walk to main square (rembrandtplein) with bars/restaurants where canal rings begin. 20/25 from Red Light District. 10 min to Rijksmuseum (iamsterdam sign & Van Gogh museum) and another 5 to vondelpark. Would definitely recommend & would love to stay again! Kale Cafe across the road also does amazing food, beers and lattes!!!

All of my queries to the hotel prior to our arrival were answered in a very timely and professional manner. A Dutch friend of mine from the hotel industry had recommended it as a good alternative to some of the more expensive hotels in Amsterdam. I was not expecting a four star experience but certainly better than what we got. I had hoped we might be able to check in very early after arriving from our international flight. However, they were unable to accommodate us and said our room would not be ready until mid afternoon. So we stored our luggage at the front desk and went about exploring Amsterdam. When we came back later in the day to check in, we were given a room in a building behind the main hotel. No one offered to assist with our luggage and my husband had to haul our suitcases up a very narrow and steep staircase to the second level. To say our room was small is an understatement. The bed literally took up about 90% of the floor space. There was virtually no room to open our luggage. I had to move a small chair into the corner and put one of the cases on top of it. There was no closet--just an alcove with a couple hangers and shelves. No safe in which to store valuables. The room was a drab grayish blue, something you might see in a college dormitory. At least ours had good sized windows to let in the light. There was a tiny sink with a mirror over it that hung was so high I had to stand on my toes to see into it. No towel racks or hooks by the sink, although it did appear as some hooks had been yanked off the wall at some point. The combination toilet and shower stall was so dark it was hard to see. There was a small glass partition that didn't help keep the shower water from swamping the toilet area and floor. I asked about upgrading our room to something larger but was told the hotel was fully booked that night. They offered to move us into a "slightly larger" room for the second night but we decided it wasn't worth the trouble moving for just one night. I understand they have subterranean rooms that are even smaller if that's possible. When we were checking out, I commented about how small the room was and that didn't sit well with the man at the front desk who essentially told me we got what we paid for. Yes, we booked a lower priced room, but I never expected anything as basic and small as what we got! Had I known, I would have paid more. In hindsight, I would have stayed elsewhere. On the plus side--the location is good (in a safe neighborhood) and very close to a tram stop. The bed was comfortable and the linens were soft. The buffet breakfast was plentiful, although they wanted to charge me for a hot chocolate. The staff was friendly and helpful. I'm giving the hotel an average rating which is fairly generous. They need to do a thorough cleaning, paint and brighten the rooms, and add some small, comfort touches for starters.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the hotel proper. Avoid the back building and subterranean rooms, unless you a...

Unwittingly we booked two of the basement rooms. When we arrived we found them to be extremely small, dark and claustrophobic.
We would never recommend these rooms. When we asked for an upgrade there was only one other room available and it was not much better.
The official photos do not reflect the reality of the basement rooms at all!!

Room Tip: Do not book a basement room!!!!

Hotel V Frederiksplein, Amsterdam, was recommended in a newspaper article on reasonably priced hotels in Amsterdam. Having never visited the city before, it can be bewildering trying to work out where you want to stay. We wanted something nice (it was going to be our wedding anniversary) but realistically we planned to be out and about and not spending lots of time in our room. The hotel hit that spot of great location, friendly service, good, clean facilities and reasonable price. The V was a 10 minute street car ride away from Central station. We just had to walk 30m and cross the road to the hotel. The area was quiet, near a park and there were cafes nearby for an ale or a coffee. The museum district and the busy red light district and Dam Square were a quick tram ride away. Forewarned we picked a double room that WASNT in the basement. The room was narrow (we were expecting that) but it was warm, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom and furnishings were modern and tasteful. It has a lift for luggage handling. Downstairs there is a large, funky lounge area with fire to have a coffee or drink a beer and plan your day. We booked breakfast each morning and that was a boon. We could eat well and have a good coffee before venturing forth to explore. Well fed couples still feeling the effects of jet lag are happier when they have breakfast. We liked being able to people-watch out of the big glass windows, watching the good folk of Amsterdam ride their bikes to work. A different perspective on the rush hour. The staff at the V were very friendly and helpful. You can tell that they love their city and they were more than willing to offer advice about where to eat and where to go and how to get there. My husband and I want to bring our teenage children with us to Amsterdam next time and we'd stay there again. The kids can have their own room (in the basement if they complain). The hotel is in a safe, quiet area that is still close to everything.

Room Tip: The basic room seems to be in the basement. We paid a little bit extra to get a double room upstairs...

I have booked this hotel from May 16 to May 17 on agoda.com, but upon arrival they said every room not available and move us into a very bad hotel that the name is Agora. I already paid 320 EUR for 2 rooms, but the new hotel every time price maximum 100 EUR/room/1night.

Very good hotel. Staff excellent. Breakfast very good. Would recommend always going for extra large room! Bed large and comfortable. Fairly quiet and decent area, convenient for town. Near Heiniken Museum, Van Gogh Museum and Vondelpark. Recommended as reasonably priced, comfortable hotel.
