out of 21 reviews
Hotel staff is first-rate--friendly, helpful, knowledgeable of local attractions. The hotel lobby is inviting and comfortable, with fireplace and seating, bar open in the evenings and nice bar menu for food. Location for using public transportation is excellent since the tram stop is literally right outside the front door. The breakfast buffet was well-stocked. The only shortfall for this hotel is the small size of the rooms. But since there is so much to do and see in Amsterdam, we only spent time sleeping in the rooms.
Very comfortable. Great pillows, blankets, towels etc. Only complaint was that there were no mirrors.
“fantastic for couples”
This was probably one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff were incredibly friendly and the hotel was beautiful. Continental breakfast is included in the price of the room and you can ask for tea or coffee throughout the day for free. The reception area is beautiful with an open fire place that we spent a lot of time next to drinking wine. An ideal hotel for couples.
“Amazing value, we were more than pleased!”
We read very mixed reviews on this hotel before booking it for our trip to Amsterdam. We were thrilled that we listened to the good reviews but that doesnt mean this hotel is a good fit for everyone. We are a young couple in our late 20's who appreciate quality and service. We were looking for a comfortable place to sleep and didn't expect to spend a lot of extra time in the hotel aside from sleeping. Keep in mind when looking for a hotel in Europe that they are not large like they are in North America. Pro's and Con's PROS: it included an amazing breakfast; fresh croissants, mini jam jars, fruits, cold cuts and cheeses etc. the bar served free coffee and tea all day which includes espresso and lattes with a little stroopwafel or biscotti. The lounge was extremely stylish and The staff was excellent. FREE Internet! CONS: the room was small but I wouldn't consider this a con, it just left little room to put our clothes for the week. There were no dressers or shelves so our stuff was on the floor. The hotel is also built in a house style building and we were on the third floor which had great loft style ceilings but climbing the steep stairs wouldn't be easy for older couples. This hotel was a pleasant surprise and we would certainly go back.
“great staff, great location, cleaning lady needs to pay attention to detail”
I loved the hotel, the lobby, the staff, the free internet and access to computers, free coffee at any time.... Room was a bit small and to match the bathroom, but I expected that from the reviews. My only issue was the cleanliness of the room. While not bad at all - and overall clean, there were a few faults that left us contiplating whether to sleep on top of the sheets. Our first night there we were so exhausted from our other travels that we did not notice the random hairs in the sheets that did not belong to us. However the second night my boyfriend noticed them and was not too thrilled. I tried to assure him that they would change the sheets tomorrow as most hotels have the 2-day rule and we were there for 3 - but they did not.... Also, there were random hairs that were stuck in the towels and we had to change a few out with the hotel staff who was more than accommodating. To their defense, they outsource their laundry.... But just a few other items that were passed over by the housekeeper - like a razor head left in our shower from the previous occupant - it was there all 3 dyays! And huge dust bunnies from around the drapes. Again, great staff, great location, great lobby - these were just a few items we noticed but if you make a note of it to the staff I"m sure they would jump to a quick resolution. Still comes recommended in my book.
“Excellent value for money”
We found the Hotel 'V' to be a well equiped modern hotel that provided excellent service. It was conveniently located for accessing both the museum district and the canals. The staff were most helpful and you could breakfast particularly well at no cost as it was all covered in the price of a room. And as you sat in the comfortable lobby enjoying breakfast you could watch Amsterdammers cycling by. A pleasant way to start the day... The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, but with good links to the rest of town. Our bedroom was the cheapest and rather cramped, but comfortable nonetheless. We would certainly return again and will recommend it to others.
“Perfect base for exploring the city”
The hotel room was quite small but had everything we needed. The decor was very funky and the staff were great. The hotel is out of the centre of town but next to the tram and close to the museums so it makes a good base to rest weary feet.
“A golden bulldog!”
Hotel V is black, very black. Everything is ultra trendy verging on the pretentious. When you arrive and walk through (hopefully not into) the glass doors, the first thing you see is a neckerchiefed golden statue of a bulldog. Your eyes then catch sight of the fire around which is a cosy leather couch and a stack of arty magazines. Beyond this is the bar area and seating. Check out the deer shaped vases. Breakfast is served here in the morning which is a selection of meats, cheeses, bread, toast, egg, cereal, yoghurt etc. Its also quite a good people watching spot. We'd booked a small Souterain double room. It was small but warm (it was snowing outside), comfortable and with enough room to move about easily and hang our things up. It was black. It had a nice and clean ensuite shower and toilet which again was black. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is perfect for those who are looking to stay away from the neon signs and scores of Irish pubs. Its a short walk to anywhere, the Rijkmuseum, Friederickplein, Heineken Museum. There is also a tram stop right outside. Despite constantly not feeling cool enough to be staying here, I loved it.
“In a lovely part of Amsterdam”
We have just come back from this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was wonderful!! Our only complaint was that we had booked a standard room and it did feel a bit cramped. I would stay there again but would book a bigger room next time.
Very pleasant and helpful staff. Strategic location. No need for care hire
