We (2 Adults and 2 Toddlers ages 2 + 1) stayed at the Lloyd hotel in room 607 which is one of the 5 Star suites, this room has a bath in the middle of the room, which the toddlers loved! and a swing which we had to take down to stop accidents.... The view of the clock tower in the morning is also very nice and the surrounding area was also very pleasant. The bed has to be one of the most comfortable beds I have laid in! So much so I think we need to change our mattress at home.
For a “5" star room we were a bit disappointed with the TV, lack of in room tea and coffee making facilities (or bigger cups at the on floor facilities would have been nice) and a lock on the bathroom would have been handy to stop little hands entering while you are trying to have a shower. If you want luxury surrounding this might not be for you. These were only minor things on an otherwise excellent stay.
There is some noise from outside from the trams and bars but no more then expected, and we had no problems with us or the toddlers sleeping through the night. I am quite glad we were out from the centre a bit as I believe it would have been noisier further in town.
The Hotel is a 20min walk with a pram from central station, or a quick tram ride, the I Amsterdam card was well worth buying for attractions and transport we used, saved at least 30 Euros per person.
The food from the Hotels restaurant was lovely, we really enjoyed our evening meal and breakfast was also great.
The hotel staff were very helpful and understood how much of a handful 2 toddlers can be and was very patient with us at times, the staff made sure that 2 baby beds were in the room and also a baby bath just little things that make you feel welcome. They were also very helpful with my questions over Facebook and responded very quickly.
In all a great stay at the hotel, we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if we return to Amsterdam.
