“Great location, fabulous room, lovely staff”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Having just returned from a 3-day stay at Hotel Vondel, I am quite shocked to read the recent poor reviews of the place. My trip was a last-minute thing organised by work so I hadn't checked out the reviews but I found the hotel to be perfectly clean, modern,and in a great location. I had a room on the 4th floor, room was huge (as was the bathroom), and the bed was comfortable. I also found the staff to be lovely and extremely helpful. Overall a great hotel and I would happily stay again for either work or pleasure

A Hotel that appears so-so in interior decorating with poor staff ....poor service and poor everything!!!!!!!
Every day you have to ask for something that was not replaced - house keeping forget to replace the towel with a clean one, then the water glass, do not wash the tea mug, do not replace the face towel..... every day you have to ask for for something that is missing.
The mattress is so old and soft you can watch TV and smell your big toes while on your bed - my back is killing me. Why do they not replace the mattress ???
Check in and out is a nightmare as staff are young and inexperienced!!!!!!!
YOU SHOWER AND THE TOILET IS SPRAYED WITH WATER AS THE SHOWER DOORS IN 201 JUST DOES NOT SEAL THE SHOWER OFF.!
CANNOT OPEN THE WINDOWS AS YOU CAN JOIN A CONVERSATION WITH THIOSE WALKING OUTSIDE - NO sound proofing.
What a nightmare!

Do not accept a room in the basement. Woke up every morning to tables being moved in the restaurant directly above us. You cannot leave the shades open as the windows look out on the sidewalk and anyone can look in. The comforter was a size too small and barely covered the bed. The giant brown splatter on the wall near the toilet paper in the bathroom was never cleaned. Asked to change rooms but none were available.

The hotel is in the heart of Amsterdam city (well its as central as you can get for the price). The rooms are nice, clean and small. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful.
Our room was on the top floor and had cute interiors..nothing fancy but just the kind of place we were expecting.
The only complain, if any, would be that they did not clean our room on day two. That was probably because we left the room very late but still not expected from a 4 star hotel.

We were given a bedroom downstairs; when we get into it, there were still other suitcases and a bottle of wine with a small note aimed to another customer and saying that the hotel apologised for the inconvenience. So, they moved back the wrong suitcases (and the bottle of wine), the valet broke the glasses in the corridor and we didn't sleep very well because of the noise coming from upstairs (everlasting steps from the breakfast) and from the street ! Moreover the carpet was dirty and torn. We won't return to this hotel for sure !

Room Tip: take a room downstairs and far from the breakfast room !

The hotel is centrally located, a short walk to restaurants (including Indonesian and Thai), entertainment, shopping, Vondel Park, the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museums. The reservation desk can arrange tickets, eliminating the need for you to stand in lines for attractions. Sign up for the excellent buffet breakfast. Wi-fi is available, but at a charge of 10 euros/day.

Room Tip: Avoid the lower-level rooms as you'll hear the rumble of luggage being wheeled across the lobby...
