We got some inexpensive flight from KLM to Amsterdam. It was only after we had the flights that we realised this was Queens weekend in Amsterdam with the abdication and all the City was pretty full. Our first choice of hotel was not confirmed so we went for the Vondel and must have got the last room.
we were allowed to check in a couple of hours early, 13:00 instead of the usual 15:00. we were given room 106 and it took a while to realise the room was down one floor. I then remembered the review of the room about the noise from 6:30 as you are under the kitchen and dining area. well they were right so if you are a light sleeper or la late riser this is not the room for you. We are neither and it was only a three night stay. On the plus side it is a large room with a nice bathroom with full bath tub. You also look out over the garden terrace.
The dining area is light and airy and never overcrowded even with a full hotel. There is a good selection of food and quality is also very good. The staff who serve the coffee were very attentive and friendly. The reception staff were the same.
Cleanliness of the hotel is to a very high standard.
And what a location. Two minutes walk from Leidersplein and the trams. In fact if you are going to Centraal Station on your departure the number 1 tram stop is just one minute away. You are also close to Vondelpark a lovely place if you are there on a warm summer day.
So a good quality hotel with the only drawback being if you are given a first floor room and like a lie in you may be disappointed.
