“great location but average hotel”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

ok for a 1 night business trip, however the room was quite stark. weirdly 3 single beds in a row and quite hard to sleep on! small but very clean bathroom.
unfortunatley the room smelled strongly of stale beer so not very nice.
breakfast room and food ok, but not a place for a weekend break as rooms very basic.

Room Tip: ask for a double bed!

Knew not to expect too much but it was very small room, very basic facilities and breakfast not worth 10 euros. Having said that being close to Vondel Park on a sunny day is just great.You can pick up a tram close by or i feeling brave you can hire a bike from hotel.

The hotel is located in a quiet suburban area of Amsterdam, close to Vondel Park. The room was small but clean and comfortable, with a modern well-equipped en suite. The stairs are quite steep and narrow but there is a small lift. The staff we met were polite and helpful with excellent English. There was a kettle in the room, and we were invited to help ourselves to tea bags etc from the breakfast room when we used up our supplies. There are plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance, but we found prices were generally high with main courses costing around 20 euros per person. There is a computer in the reception area which we were able to use to check the weather forecast.

Room Tip: Our room was quite small, so if you like plenty of room you may want to ask for one of the larger ro...

I booked this hotel at the last minute and, although it's not very close to the centre, it was a bargain. The staff were wonderful and the room was far more than I had expected for the price. Hotel Central Park is right next to a not-very-central-park, but the park itself is nice, and although it took more than an hour to walk to the hotel from the train station, it was a good way to see some of the city. There's also a tram from nearby into the centre that runs regularly.

Room Tip: The guy across the road at the front of the hotel has an awesome library for a front room!

Central Park Hotel. Clean and good value, breakfast also included in my stay.

The Staff all spoke great English, were very friendly and extremely helpful.

On the outskirts of Amsterdam but next to the main park and only a short tram or bus ride from the centre - would recommend it as a place to stay and if I return to Amsterdam..............I'll be going back.

It's only a 3* hotel, but with 5* service.

This hotel is located outside of Amsterdam city centre and is a short tram ride away from the sights. Our room was a good size and was impeccably clean. In no way luxurious, but perfect for a short city break.
There are many gorgeous bars and restaurants around this area, as it seems to be an affluent suburb. You will also find lots of little specialist stores selling various things and nice supermarkets. The park runs behind the hotel and if you have the time you can join the locals and walk, cycle or rollerblade into the city. Our room overlooked the lake. The scenery is beautiful and although it is cold, it is worth it!
The staff were very helpful on the front desk and helped us with directions and attractions. Thankfully, there is free wifi in the rooms as well.
Before you stay here, make sure that you are aware that this hotel is not in the city centre. We got a taxi when we first arrived, which cost us an eye watering 35 Euros. If you aren't sure when you get to Central Station, take the number two tram and get off when you get to Thomas Cook. Walk until you see the Timothy Oulton store and turn right. You will see the park when you have turned, on your left. The hotel is on the street on the second right.

PLUS: Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The receptionist explained to us the main attractions in Amsterdam and how to get there as this was our first time in the city. The receptionist was also helpful in printing some e-tickets we booked online. Location was good. Walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, and Vondelpark. Also, it was quiet as located in the residential area.

MINUS: Room was too small for two persons. The aircon was a bit noisy. No heating in the bathroom. The bed was too soft and uncomfortable for people with back problem.
