Hotell Lloyd is a beautiful hotel, 10 min from the Centre of Amsterdam via tram. Me and my friend had the greatest time in this great city, and Lloyd made it perfect. a 3 star room, with great beds, but not the greatest bathrooms. loads of space though. including a giant closet in the hall, fitting room enough for a...

I returned to the Lloyd for a second visit this spring 2012 after a pleasing stay back in 2005. I have to say I left this time a bit disappointed. To be fair though I'll start with the positive parts of the experience: The location of the Lloyd is great--it looks far away, but I consider its separation from the... More

Even though at first glance the Lloyd hotel seems a bit out of town, we found it to be a really great location. Just three tram stops from central station, and then the number 10 tram which stops right outside and takes you to all of the best bits of Amsterdam, we loved it! The hotel itself is modern and...

This hotel is a destination in itself, with so much history and a uniquely designed interior. We really enjoyed exploring the different areas of the hotel, including a plant room tucked in the basement, the "mini movietheater", and the historical staircase. The staff are also friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was nice. We did, however, upgrade our room... More

We had lunch at the Lloyd Hotel Restaurant. First, we had oysters - they were so small we almost couldn`t see them. Then, a fish soup, which was completely tasteless and contained fishbones. The pate was average, but overpriced. Water is served in an unopened bottle, just like that. The wine (we had languedoc) was good. The food was so... More

Our room was tiled floor to ceiling in white old tiles, giving it a look of 'One flew over the Cuckoo's nest"! Furniture was very sparse. Nowhere to put clothes so the room quickly became messy.I like industrial chic, but this was a step too far! The beds however are very comfortable. The fourth floor corridor has odd bits of... More

We booked a two star room, and weren't disappointed with the decor - spartan and industrial, and with a shower in the middle of the bedroom (or a bed in the shower, if you prefer). The bed was huge and immensely comfortable. However the walls are thin and the floors uncarpeted, so any noise really rattles through the hotel. Take... More

This location is an absolute perfect one! We had a stay for 4 nights this May. Extraordinary friendly service everywhere and at any time. A relaxed feeling overall. The rooms are clean designed and large (we had a 3-star room). The beds were very very comfortable and therefore difficult to leave in the morning :-)) The connection to the city... More
