Reviewed March 21, 2014

Booked at the last minute, got a great deal. Accommodation in Amsterdam is expensive and you don't always get value for money but this hotel was an exception. Hotel Vondel is modern, super clean, quiet and in a great location! Staff were efficient and happy to help with any queries. Walking distance to Museums with Leidseplein Square just across the canal and trams at the end of the street. Will definitely return to this hotel.

We actually stayed in JL 76, part of the Vondel Hotels. It is Very well situated, one street away from high end shopping and one street to the rijksmuseum. It felt like being at home with a nice relaxed kind of interior, happy staff and a good breakfast. The honesty bar, impressed me the most as it tells me about the general culture of the place, trust and respect. The hotel offers bikes and a scooter to rent. Love Amsterdam and its people.

This hotel is perfectly situate in the affluent leides plein area. The rooms are perfectly decorated, comfy beds and very clean. The local area is full of museaums, bars, restaurants and coffee shops. You are only a 5 minute tram ride from dam square or around 25 minutes walk. The restaurant connected to the hotel was very nice for lunch however the breakfast was not very good value at 20 euro pp.

I have stayed a few times now and each room has been different, but always a reasonable size, witha comfortable bed and clean. The style is pleasant, staff are friendly but not "gushing". the location is great, close to teh centre, trams and museums.

Would stay here as a preference, but amsterdam hotel prices vary massivley and always worth looking for value.

Rooms are clean and staff are friendly. Small double room is really, really small however and this makes the room very difficult to use other than sleeping in.

The coffee, tea and milk wasn't replaced, despite asking twice, and the broadband was useless.

Location is excellent and you can easily get a tram within a couple of minute walk.

In summary, good staff, great location, just don't choose the small double unless you packed your gear in a very small suitcase.

Recent visit with 12 couples to celebrate birthday.
Great location and fantastic hotel.
Room 407 for us - up in the roof but no noise, comfortable - everything you want.
One issue - hence 4 stars - had breakfast in hotel on second day - big mistake! At 20 euros each and towards the end of breakfast service - of poor quality - in looks, choice and price!
Go to Leidersplein Square and eat there!!

Room 103 in this hotel is below the street level with windows high on the wall facing the street. The noise of luggage rolling along the footpath, people loitering in front of the hotel and traffic on the street in front of the hotel supply the noise from outside the building all night long.

Inside the building the floor above room 103 appears to be a heavily trafficed area of the hotel, and this brings much pounding on the ceiling.

The plumbing for the hotel evidently runs through the walls of this room, and thus supplements the noise with pipe noise through the night.

Evidently, the connection to the city sewer under the street is near as every sounding of the pipe is followed shortly thereafter by the stink of the sewer.

This room as adjacent to a cleaning cupboard, which is used by staff in the pre-breakfast hours.

This is not a room to accept if you require a comfortable night's sleep.

The lobby of the hotel is attractive, and the towels are high quality, but the managing staff are utterly indifferent to both the disruption caused by the noise in their room and the stink. My evidence for this is that when I informed the managing staff they expressed polite sorrow, but did not inquire about the nature of either the noise or the stink.

It's impossible to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid any room prefixed with a one, particularly room 103.
