Stayed at Hotel V for our first trip to Amsterdam with the hubby and we both had an amazing time. We can't wait for a future trip and future stay! Overall, it's a very hip and trendy hotel and the staff are hip and trendy as well.
First of all, their staff is the best ever! They greeted us every morning before breakfast (some by name), helped us plan our daily activities, made restaurant recommendations and dinner reservations, and would chat with us over the free hot drinks (hot chocolate, tea, latte, etc.) in the lobby before the end of the day. They know the city well and are truly passionate about helping visitors enjoy Amsterdam like the locals.
The breakfast spread was great - wide range of choices and very delicious. We looked forward to breakfast!
Coming to Amsterdam/Europe, we expected rooms to be small, which is why we upgraded to the XL room, which offered us a balcony and street view...The XL room had a very large comfy bed and great trendy decor, though the room was still small for the highest upgrade. The bathroom space was really small too - and we thought that for the price and size, Hotel V should at least offer more room amenities to compensate for the price (they offer shampoo, soap, and body wash only)...just a little suggestion.
Hotel V is right across a tram stop (which you can hear throughout the day from your room, but it's no big deal and not a bothersome) and is located near some great attractions (like the museums, great restaurants, the Heineken Experience). Amsterdam is relatively small and we didn't even use the trams...we walked all over AND conveniently rented the bikes that the hotel offered.
They offer free wifi as well as have two computers in the lobby. When hotels do this for free, that's always a plus. Also, they have multiple wifi signals so you'll always have a connection.
Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend staying at Hotel V. It's a great experience and we would definitely go back and stay at this Hotel on future trips.
THANK YOU HOTEL V!
