“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

First time in Amsterdam with my friend and had the friendliest welcome from all of the staff! As well as giving us several maps and information on transport and locations of attractions which was great. Nice clean room, brilliant price. Had such a fun time! Definitely be returning.. Also no time limit on when returning to the hotel at silly o'clock!!! Even then the staff would always welcome with a hello. Very highly recommended. Thank you hotel de Filosoof!!! From the two blonde English girls!! X

Stayed here for one night 1st April quirky hotel nice room and bathroom lovely garden which was nice to sit in on a lovely sunny day booked a double room but got a twin room the major down side was no tea making facilities in room .. We English like our tea in the morning didn't have breakfast here as 15 euros was a bit expensive and they didn't serve full English breakfast also tv in room was very small no decent channels either ... Hotel is in a nice area next to vondelpark lovely walk on a sunny day .. Glad we only payed £59 and not £120 as listed on other sites as I would have been disappointed

Safe and charming neighbourhood. Clean and comfortable hotel with a lovely garden. Overpriced breakfast, but other than that the hotel was perfect. Tram is so close, and can walk to almost every attraction in town.

Room Tip: Beds and bedding were super comfy!

Our trip to Amsterdam had to include a stay at the Hotel Filosoof to satisfy our 13 year old daughter's fascination with the John Greene book, "the fault in our stars."
She was not disappointed even if we were a little.
The location is fabulous just by Vondelpark and it is a quiet beautiful neighbourhood. The hotel to be honest is a little tired and could do with some renovation but the atmosphere is quirky and cool and the staff cannot do enough to help. We are a family of 5 and asked for a triple and a double. Unfortunately they were on different floors but not far from each other so we divided and conquered. The double room was very small but to be fair we did not spend much time in there other than to sleep.. Breakfast was good and the room that we ate in was fabulous. All in all we had a good experience but I could understand why some may not. The staff very kindly showed my daughter to room 24 from the book and could not have been nicer.

The staff were very helpful with advice and the room we stayed in was across the road in an annex and was warm and comfortable and cleaned everyday, hairdryer provided when asked. Easy access to airport via tram outside and train. Easy walking distance through the park to the main Art Galleries and to canal with boat trips. The tram was excellent for getting further into the city and runs frequently just up the road.
Highly recommend for value, helpfulness and quiet location.
Free internet access as well.

Amsterdam is a very expensiveso hotels likewise, this is pleasant enough, room basic, bathroom extremely basic! Bed was comfy but sleeping difficult as very noisy bar nearby and we needed our windows wide open as very.hot and no air conditioning. Hotel bar and garden very nice, breakfast though a complete waste of money. Need to get a taxi from station with luggage though we always walked to canal each day (15 mins) Beautiful park nearby and verynice cafe in it. We found some verynice restaurants and pubs about 10 mins away. Lots going on around canal, fascinating place, lovely art gallery. Do watch out for thebikes though, they are everywhere and do take a trip on the canal

Room Tip: Probably towards the back, also a lot of stairs though there was a lift

We stayed here for 4 nights in November,for my husband's birthday.I was looking for somewhere a bit different and it certainly fits the bill.It is all based on the theme of philosophers and all the rooms are themed around a different person.It is in the museum district which is quiet and yet still easy to get to the centre from ,as there is a tram stop very nearby.
The room and bathroom were quite small ,but warm and comfortable and there was a hair dryer in the bathroom,contrary to what some of the reviews say.The hotel itself is full of interesting corners and areas,with a garden which must be nice in spring or summer.
Breakfast was a bit predictable,exactly the same every day, and once things finished they weren't replaced.
The staff were helpful and friendly and answered my email asking for directions from the station quickly.
Overall I was quite happy with the hotel but I do think it was more of a 3 star hotel charging 4 star prices for being a bit out of the ordinary.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the superior rooms as they are a bit bigger.
