Brilliant hotel, perfect for on a budget, really good service, cool lounge bar area, we had the breakfast one day and it was good quality for the price. Our bed was really soft, which was comfy but I'm not sure it was great for my back. The bathroom was great and the shower was spacious and a good pressure. The room is small but had a desk, tv, bedside table and cupboard. The staff were really helpful and you can buy tram tickets and tourist passes from the hotel.
The rooms were clean and very well equipped with tea, coffee and complimentary biscuits, fruit and two bottles of water. The bathroom was also spotless with a range of shower and bath gels and soaps. The bar is very pleasant with a great selection of beers on tap and bottled, but perhaps a little expensive. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were very good but expensive and the bill on checkout assumes that you have had breakfast on each day of your stay whether you had pre-booked it or not.There seems to be little communication between reception and the restaurant so you need to inform the staff at checkout if you have not taken breakfast or you will be charged!
The hotel is an excellent base for walking to the main museums, markets, and shopping districts, and at this time of year, also to the Christmas markets and ice skating. We caught a bus from the airport to the hotel (about 30 mins), and to the station for a canal trip.
We had a large room on the top floor (7th) which had views over the canals, the Rijks Museum and the local neighbourhood. It also had a bath.
We had breakfast on one morning and this had a good buffet choice which included some hot food.

We had a deal for room without view, which was not a problem since we were out most of the day. Room itself was immaculate. New appliances, clean and modern bathroom, comfortable bed, espresso coffee machine. Staff was extremely helpful. Good location with the tram stop just outside of hotel, with direct tram to the central train station. 15-20 min walk to Kalverstraat. One of our best hotel stays.
The Vondel Hotel lost our reservation but knew that we made one. They were extremely apologetic and booked us into an upgraded member property, the DeHallen, within their hotel group. They arranged for a taxi transfer at their expense. The DeHallen was very comfortable, clean and new. Overall, we were pleased.
