“Best place to stay in Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Location, location, location. The best place to stay if you are over 30. Beautiful quiet tree covered street in the art museum area and easy walk to the Leidseplein which has all the restaurants, cafes and coffee shops anyone could want. Not far from the flower mart and boat cruises along the canals. The breakfast is included and holds us all day until dinner. We stayed 6 nights. Free wifi.

Room Tip: Reserve early. This is a small hotel and many people know how great it is.

The hotel was very clean and in great location to visit Amsterdam's rich museums. The staff was disinterested at check in but I guess it is hard to greet guests. There is no A/C which could be a problem during a warm spell - room did have small oscillating fan with "Alaska" on front so in theory it must blow cooler air. The breakfast was satisfying.

Lovely old completely modernized hotel, nice spacious rooms, fairly priced and a great location near the major museums. Transportation a block and a half away, within walking distance of several restaurants, a very helpful and accommodating staff who made all sorts of calls and reservations for us. Breakfast room was very pleasant and breakfast was fine.

We enjoyed the Hotel Aalders during our two nights/three days in Amsterdam with two other couples from the U.S. The location was great for us-- on a quiet street but very close to the major art museums and just over a block from the tram stop. The staff was extremely helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The service from the reception was excellent and the had answer to every question that vi had. the cleaning of the room was very good.
We liked the room which was big enough for 2 adults and 2 teenagers and the bathroom was ok. The Breakfast was nice and quiet.
The hotel is situated in a very calm street and it is easy to reach the center of Amsterdam by foot or take the tram in the next street.
What I liked the most was the quiet atmosphere and the least that there was not quite enough space around the tables in the breakfastroom.

Room Tip: High up has the possibility to let the window open all day and night as the room has no A/C
