“Horrible hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

To start off if u want to go into the city then I would not stay here as it is way to far out to think about walking. You need to rent bikes which I would recommend red light bikes which is just off vondel park. The service in the hotel was rubbish the receptionist was unhelpful and just not a nice person. The pillow was like a slab of concrete with a pillow case and when I asked for another 1 I just got a worse pillow. The shower was do bad it was like getting urinated on and I struggled having a proper wash. I would not recommend this hotel unless you didn't care about your holiday!

this is a 1 start hotel rather than 3, well you could stay here overnight but do not expect a conformable room or reasonable breakfast. Although park with all the multiple resto's and cafe's is 5 min walk away, would not recommend the place

Room Tip: stay away if you have a choice

No towels in the bathroom. The telephone didn't work, we couldn't even contact reception. The bathroom glass shelves are all broken up. Cupboard space allows you to hang 2 jackets, and the door has holes punched in it. No safe in the room. The rooms are dirty; plugs are black with gritt and grime. Your breakfast coffee comes from a flask that seems to have been made the night before and is cold, and that is just the start. The staff are oblivious and unhelpfull with a no care attitude. They don't book tours. The hotel should maybe have a 1 star. MAYBE.

Room Tip: Book another hotel!!!!

I stayed in this hotel from 18th september to 21st september 2012. I had arranged a package tour prior to my arrival from malaysia. The tour company had chosen this hotel and did mention 3*.
This hotel should be classifed under 2*. The room did not have a kettle for making any drinks and there is no shampoo in the bathroom. They dont have a phone extension and their adaptor did not work. When i informed the front desk that i could not charge my phone they replied that probably my charger was faulty. I tried explaining to them that i just came from bradford hilton and i had no problem charging my phone there but they did not assist in anyway. I had to go around amsterdam without a phone line for 2 days and remember they did not have a phone line extension which means that I was not able to receive any calls in my room. I had to wait at the reception to receive a call from my daughter. Their breakfast was ok and their shower is powerful. There is a tram service very near from the hotel. The hotel is quite far from the city and there seems to be nothing much nearby.I would never stay in this hotel again and would not recommend anybody to stay here unless you are looking for a very basic room to sleep at night

Room Tip: Choose this hotel only as a last resort

Stayed at the Belfort for 3 nights (21/9/12). It's a cheap hotel, definitely not the rating it's given.
We found it to be reasonably clean,had no problems with the staff at all, in fact, found them to be very helpful. I guess it's all down to how you talk to them.
It is a little way from the centre, but, there's a tram stop right outside, with trams running into the city about every 10 mins.
If you're fit and able, take a walk through the Vondel Park to get to town, you won't be disappointed.
In my opinion, this hotel is too pricey for what you get,and it could do with a lot of TLC.
The continental breakfast was passable, just. Coffee's great though.
Would we stay there again? Probably not, there are much better hotels in Amsterdam for the price.

Room Tip: Walls are thin, noise travels easily, both from rooms and the busy crossroads right outside.
