Certificate of Excellence

I stayed for a couple of days for business.
The impression was very bright. Room was comfortable, spacious with cosy bed. Bathroom was nice with scented oatsoaps.
It is not too close to the city centre but it takes 2 minutes to get Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum by bicycle ('m sure this is the best way to go sightseeing in Amsterdam). Bicycles could be rent right in the hotel.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. I also liked that they had a great sense of humor.

We stayed for a Conference and we were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff and the location of the Hotel. It is in a very quiet and nice neighbourhood, which makes it convenient and pleasant. From there it is a short walk to RAI. Also there are two main tramway lines and the train station is not too far away. Overall good stay.
However, be aware of the city tax that they are going to charge on top of the overall rate.

Stayed for a week in bilderberg hotel , I choose to have breakfast in the hotel and paid extra for that. Room was very comfortable with attached cozy bathroom.it is very close to the city centre. But not walking. It is close to the train station ( no 5 and 24 takes 10-15 minutes to reach central station. Bar and bar attendant was excellent . Great service , friendly and helpful staff. I bought my train tickets from the hotel reception.
I wasn't quite happy with the breakfast as they served same menu with very limited choice menu.Absolutely fix menu daily. Oh god I couldn't eat same breakfast every day. Finally I decided to withdraw from breakfast though I paid in advance but they adjusted balance whilst checkout in my final bill.
Wifi was not free .perhaps you will have to pay for wifi in most of the hotels in amsterdam.

Overall it was very comfortable stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are staying here you can find few very nice shops for great breakfast at reasonable price. If...

I can only think that the negative comments were written by people who stayed at another hotel.

The Bilderberg Garden is a lovely hotel: our exec room was precisely that; it did not purport to be a suite, it was not overly large, but it was extremely comfortable, the jacuzzi was a perfect facility after a long day's sightseeing, huge fluffy bath sheets, crisp bed linen, all changed daily.

The staff could not have been more welcoming, more attentive or more helpful. It is difficult to single out individuals when this ethic pervades the hotel from management down, but Frank (bar manager, comedian, tour guide, politician, all-round star) is, perhaps, the jewel in the crown.

Stayed in Bilderberg Garden for one night after moving on from another hotel.
First of all the location is great, relatively close to the city centre while situated in a calm, higher class area with wonderfully cozy cafes nearby.

The room is modern and clean, comfortable beds and a nice bathroom. Bathrobes and apples in the room were a nice addition.

The service however was what ruined the experience entirely.
The room was paid for in advance, yet the reception rudely requested 50€ deposit (which was neither mentioned anywhere beforehand nor was it explained nor did I notice anybody else paying this).
Every other employee simply ignored us and offered their help to the customers in front and behind us instead.
We were appropriately dressed and not in any way negatively attracting attention apart from being younger than the average customers, so I find this behaviour absolutely inacceptable.

The next day however we were woken up three times starting at 7am by employees entering our room just to leave again.
Upon checking out of the hotel, I had to demand the 50€ deposit as the receptionist seemed to know nothing about it.


The price paid did not justify the room, but considering the many incidents we had with the employees it was an absolute waste of money and I would not recommend anybody to book this hotel.

This hotel promised much but delivered disappointment. A stratospheric price to match the 5 star rating but in reality no better than a 3 star. To charge such prices without providing free wifi is way behind the times, especially given the business clientele targeted. The executive suite had a whirlpool and this was eagerly anticipated after a tough day yet had to be switched off as soon as it went on because the motor was so noisy my partner likened it to a helicopter landing nearby. The air con matched it for disturbance so was a choice of noise against a too warm room. Location was perfect since it was a short walk to the office. I certainly would have been able to find better for less had it been up to me to book.
