Very dissapointed with this hotel. Wasn't very fond of waiting in the halway for some communal shower time. Out of the city. Avoid it if you can. Beds were uncomfortable and small. Breakfast not great.

Great value, I stayed in a room which had a shared bathroom on the fourth floor. There is one bathroom for the whole floor, but I never had problems with using the showers and the point is that the room is great, and the price is also great. 5 - 10 minutes max from Central Station via the 26 tram,...

I went to the HardRockKaroke at Wilaminapakhuis, and it was the nearest hotel to take (500 m). The 1 star bedroom was very basic, but perfect for my solo trip: 90 euro for a night in A'dam is a fair price!

Only here for 1 night layover but this was a great find. If you're interested in architecture, this is for you. Renovated by MVRDV, well-known Dutch firm, there's a great cafe space spilling out onto a terrace and some very cool design details. A museum in the stairwell explains the building's history, which includes serving as a quarantine for immigrants...

This is a very interesting building that could be a fantastic hotel, but the rooms just don't deliver. My first room was in the basement - extremely stark with white walls and floor and a single chair and small table. A clumsy attempt at creating interest was made by putting plastic packing cases on a grid over the bed, each...

We were able to leave our luggage with them prior to check in and also until we arrived we was not aware that we had to pay a deposit of £100.00 on arrival, me and my partner was on a tight budget so wasn't best pleased but...

Arty, quirky, a little bit eerie but clean, comfortable, fun and one of the most interesting hotels I've ever stayed. You're free to roam about the exhibitions, reading rooms and random seating areas. Our family stayed - two adults, two children (10 and 12) in a large room/mini suite. The tram station is close by and you can get into...

Always a pleasure to stay at the Lloyd Hotel and discover new details of the stunning building. The beds are exceptionally comfortable! Would be nice if the hotel gave a little discount on the parking fee though.

we stayed here over the weekend and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a couple of tram stops from Centraal Station, which for me was great. It was nice to be away from the craziness of the Red Light district. The hotel is very much a 'design hotel', so we enjoyed spending a couple of hours reading in the beautiful...

Staying in Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)

Neighborhood Profile
Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)
A visit to Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands presents the opportunity to marvel at its many modern architectural masterpieces like the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam and the beguiling Python Bridge while taking in its scenic waterfront with its trendy assortment of cafés, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Here in this post-industrial (though in some parts still very much presently industrial) neighborhood, you’ll find a smart selection of cool galleries and shops as well as the kid-friendly Science Center NEMO and the National Maritime Museum.
