“Great for art and music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Everything was fine. Especially the staff make you feel at home at all times. It is a great place for relaxing after a visit to the Rijkmuseum, The VanGogh and Stedelijk museums. Great also for quality music as the Het Concertgebouw is very near too.

This was the second time that we stayed at Hotel Aalders in Amsterdam. It is located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood very near to the Museum District. Both the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum are a block away. Vondelpark is within walking distance of about 5 minutes. Easy access to/from Amsterdam Centraal train station, Dam Central Square, and the Flower District on Metro lines 5 or 2. The Metro stops are within a 5 minute stroll from the hotel. The service and staff at Hotel Aalders go out of their way to assist in any way possible. The complimentary breakfast is one of the best in my European travels.

Stayed here regularly over the years. Last visit now: given room 21 on ground floor. After hearing drain noises coming from the bathroom shower drain, my room filled with an awful putrid smell of drains! Now I know why my room window was left wide open by the maid. Why don't hotels sort this stuff out????

Dear Narvik,

Thank you for your review on tripadvisor about our hotel.
We take every feedback by heart and we are sorry to have to learn the circumstances of the drain from your review. Your stay unfortunately does not reflect the service we strive for at HOTEL AALDERS and for that we would like to offer our apologies.

The drain is being fixed as I am writing this reply.

Again our apologies for any inconvenience it may have cost.
We hope that you will return to our lovely city and our great small hotel.

Kind regards,

The HOTEL AALDERS Family & Staff

We are a family with two little kids and spent here 4 nights over the Easter. A very nice room on the ground floor just fits our use. The room is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly. The breakfast is relatively simple but good enough for us. The quiet location is ideal but also very convenient with the public transportation.

Stayed at Hotel Aalders for 3 nights. My single room was probably the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in! But I knew in advance that it would be small, was traveling alone, and was not planning to spend any time in the room anyway, so it didn't matter to me. The room was very comfortable and looked out on a beautiful garden in the back. The location is perfect - literally around the corner from Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum, one block from an extremely upscale shopping street (think Rodeo Drive), and within easy walking distance of many excellent restaurants, shopping districts, and tourist attractions. Also, one of the excellent electric trams runs right past the end of the street. Free Wi-Fi worked well, breakfasts were excellent, and the staff was all-around helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I stayed in the Hotel Aalders for three nights in April and had a fabulous stay. All the staff were really lovely, welcoming and could not have been more helpful. The room, though we knew it would be small, was great. Clean with everything we could need:hairdryer, shower gel, a window that opened (great these days of air conditioning), a really comfy bed and pillows, an excellent, big shower and a telly with English channels.
The location has to be seen to be believed. Five minutes to three major museums, to the tram stop into town, to the canal boats and to the bus stop to and from airport.
One tip is to buy tickets for the Blue Boat Canal trip from the hotel as it is 5 euros cheaper. It also helped us to buy tickets for the Rijks museum and the Van Gogh gallery at the hotel as we then could skip the queues.
I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and would go back with my husband and teens to a family room.

Room Tip: Our room 23 was great as it was two floors up and looked onto the quiet street.

We spent two nights and three days with my students at aalders hotel, and we all appreciated the hotel... The team is really nice and hepfull, the hotel very cosy and the building is placed in the middle of everything (you can easily go everywhere in Amsterdam just by walking)!! The breakfast is great and everything very clean!!!
But the best id that the hotel has a sensibility for the environment... That's an important point!!!! You'll see what if you go there.... (Water is the most important resource of our life)
