“Very Helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We stayed at this for 5 nights and enjoyed the ambience of the Hotel. It is located in the Museum district and within walking distance to all the Museums in the Square. Hotel Staf were very friendly and helped us with our visit by suggesting sghts to see and were to eat cheaply. We had a Economy Comfort room that was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was Continental style and very good. Used Tram all the time. A day ticket costs 7.50 Euros per person. You can take the #2 or #5 Tram to the Central station or other squares.

Room Tip: The Economy Comfort Rooms are very big and spacious

I had the single bed on the first floor. The bed was amazingly comfy and the room small but sufficient. Ask at reception to borrow a bike so you can see the city like a local. Breakfast was decent, although the hot chocolate a little weak for my liking :-)

Very friendly and helpful staff! We asked for restaurant tips, and they gave us a map with 15 restaurants that were not supposed to be touristic. We tried three of them and they all turned out to be excellent! Our three bed room was very large, and we also had a large balcony! The beds were very comfortable. Perfect access to the hotel from the airport by taking bus 197. Nice and quiet area. Walking distance to shopping streets.

Great location, staff, breakfast. Very close to museums, located in a quiet location. Tram and bus to city center and to airport at 30 meters from hotel.
I recommend this hotel for visiting Amsterdam.

I stayed at Hotel Aalders with my Mum for 2 nights. We booked a comfort twin room, the room was spacious, bright and very clean and the buffet style breakfast was really good. The staff were very helpful and took the time to answer any questions we had, their recommendations for local restaurants were great. Even though the area was fairly quiet at night we felt safe walking around. The location is excellent, right in the middle of the Museum Area with trams stops at the end of the road taking you to the Central Station in about 15 minutes. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

The Hotel Aalders is in a leafy, quiet location very close to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Concertgebouw and only a short walk from the city centre. It's a very nice building with a lot of character and although I booked a small single room it wasn't as small as I expected and was comfortable and peaceful. The friendly, welcoming staff were extremely helpful and the breakfast was excellent.
