The hotel is in a good location near restaurants and public transport connections. But the room was much too small. You couldn't fit a table under the minute desk. The only way to do any work was to pull the bed forward and perch on some pillows. The bathroom was a sort of wetroom so water flooded all over the floor and wouldn't drain away. The staff came and mopped it up when I was out. If you just need a bed for the night it would be OK but you can't work here.

Tiny bud clean rooms with a nice view to a quiet park.
Friendly staff.
Also possibility to rent a bike for a whole day (don’t lose a key as we did ;-))
Good tram connection (nr. 2) to city center (about 10 min)

Room Tip: 204 bigger than others ;-)

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in April 2013. The room was fairly small, but clean. The staff was very helpful and their suggestions regarding the best restaurants in the area or the places to visit were good. The breakfast was ok, but the dining-room was too small to accommodate all the visitors.
I saved the best for last: the location was an advantage from my point of view, as I was able to come and go via the park.

This hotel had friendly staff but the lace itself, despite being in a lovely area, was a huge disappointment. We had to walk around the beds sideways and got total cabin fever. Beds were twin but might as well have been double. We went for my mother's 70th so it was meant to be special. We asked for a bigger room and we got one that was only slightly bigger but had a metal bolt or something in the floor near the bathroom which we cut our feet on. Breakfast was nice, and lady serving in breakfast room was wonderfully helpful.

Room Tip: Be firm and don't take what they give you!

We spent a couple of nights here in July. Firstly, the hotel is easily reached by bus no 197 from the airport and tram no2 stops just around the corner. The Hotel is situated about 2k from town which is a pleasant walk via the park (just watch out for the bikes). If you are going to use public transport buy a travel pass from a tourist office, they are valid for 24 or 48 hour and more. Far cheaper than paying on board.

Hotel was ok but got off to a bad start as room had a broken sink and bed was dirty. We complained and were moved to a new room without an issue. The rooms are very small, smallest I've been in but do have a/c.

Staff very friendly and continental breakfast plentiful.

Would recommend the hotel

Comfortable bed. Immaculately clean shower room. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. A range of good restaurants round the corner. Handy for beautiful Vondelpark...stroll through it to the newly re-opened Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum etc or jump on a tram. You're not in the city centre but in a quiet residential area a little way out ( though the right side of town for the airport and the Conference Centre) so not the place to stay if you want the buzz that Amsterdam offers . And the
rooms aren't big. But if, like us, you enjoy staying away from the hotspots and just want a comfortable base ( and also a good price) Hotel Central Park has a lot going for it.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have a great view over a lake.

We booked this hotel at the last minute after a disaster at another hotel. (Mice) The staff were very friendly and on finding out it was my girlfriends Birthday they gave us a room with a nice view of the lakes in the nearby park. It is a bit of a walk to the centre of Amsterdam but its near the no 2 tram line which is regular and cheap so that's not a problem. Would definitely stay here again!!
