Boutique Hotel in nice area

This hotel is in a nice area well away from the red light district but close to the Liedesplein and shops, restaurants etc. The staff in the hotel were amazing, always helpful and polite. The breakfast was well worth the experience, soft music, good food lots of choice. The decor downstairs was in a boutique style very classy and clean. The bedroom was fine, clean and quiet (we were on the 5th floor though) A nice experience for us.

Review of 'VONDEL'

Although the Vondel is a 20/25 minute walk from the railway station, it is very close to a buzzing little centre with some great bars and restaurants only a 2 minute walk away. The hotel is situated in a quiet street and has a relaxed feel about it.<br /><br />However our own experience was mixed. We were in an annex and had to enter & exit by a differnet door off the street. The bedrooms were far too small with hardly enough room to move around in and the room as well as the entrance way were in the main depressingly decorated in very dark colours.<br /><br />The bathroom was also too small and the shower was dissapointing. The ventilation in the bathroom was non existant and only one window in the bedroom would open therefore giving the bedroom a bit of a damp feel.<br /><br />On the plus side the breakfast was good, the service excellent and there is a fantastic private garden area to the rear in which to relax with a drink.<br /><br />I wouldn't neccassarily put people off from staying here as they might experience things a bit differently but next time we visit we would not stay here again. Mainly because of the size of the bedroom and bathroom.

Review of 'VONDEL'

Perfect location, small room but great modern furnishings,good size ensuite, very clean, fluffy towels,very comfortable bed. Breakfast was amazing,fresh croissants, pancakes, bacon, egg,6 types of juice, very friendly staff. The only downside was the Americans in the room next door who talked and laughed from 4.30am-6.30am, the person in reception did ring them twice to ask them to be quiet-so any americans reading this ,if you have jet lag and cant sleep go and sit in the pretty reception lounge to chat.

Lovely Hotel in a terrace which meant that the room we had was easy to get in and out as it was at street level.&nbsp;&nbsp;The room was warm clean and spacious.&nbsp;&nbsp;The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough for you.&nbsp;&nbsp;We will go back anytime we can.

The Hotel Vondel is clean, modern and in a great location.&nbsp;&nbsp;Situated within walking distance of Vondelpark and the Rijks, Van Gogh, and Stedelijk Museums.<br /><br />From Leidseplein, which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel, you can catch a tram. Ideal for exploring Amsterdam or getting to Central Station. <br /><br />The hotel also offers a great range of breakfast foods, hot or cold/English or continental. And to top it all off, the staff were friendly and helpful too!

Review of 'VONDEL'

I was very disappointed with this Hotel, I very much would dispute that its a 4star hotel and from experience have stayed in nicer 3 star hotels in the area.<br />The hotel is split into two parts that have to be accessed from the road, therefore when you want to have breakfast you first have to walk along the road to another building.<br />The room we stayed in (standard double) was tiny, really very small. The walls and chairs were grubby. The en suite was okay in size, however the towels they provided were filthy.<br />We had arranged through the hotel to book a taxi to take us the the airport the day before we were due to leave, It did not turn up nor did we receive an appology.<br />I regret choosing this hotel and will not stay again.

Absolutely Marvellous!

I can not fault this hotel. Despite having lots of building work done at present, it didn't disrupt my stay there. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left four days later, we had the best possible service we could have asked for. Friendly, helpful and responsive staff. Our hotel safe didn't work but staff were apologetic, gave us a safe to use in reception and got the safe repaired by the following day. The room was spectacular - very contemporary and spotlessly clean. We felt like royality, with our complimentary slippers, bath robe and bottled water! Breakfast too was faultless and served in a delightful 60's retro dining room with contemporary stainless steel serving bay. Choice of food was great - everything from healthy fruit,cereal and yoghurts to spoil yourself pancakes, bacon and eggs! The kitchen staff were efficient and more than happy to assist you. Once completion of the work and as long as i could stay for longer next time, i would rate this hotel 5/5. Excellent location too - just outside the hussle and bustle of the city but only a two min walk to bars and restaurants and then tram stop to take you back to central station for your train back to Schipol. I WILL BE RETURNING SOON!

Review of 'VONDEL'

Expedia and other sites are promoting this as a 4 star hotel but I'm afraid that's a long way off yet. The rooms are small and the carpets and the bottoms of walls are dirty. You are greeted with an apologetic note in each room about the state of the hotel and it goes on to say that new carpets, DVD players etc will all be installed by the end of 2006. I upgraded to a superior suite which was just as well as the standard rooms are under the bars dance floor which is open until 1am each day. A guest I met told me that it was impossible to sleep in that room until around 2am as after the bar closes the amount of clattering around from tidying up the bar etc made his ceiling light jump and clang.<br /><br />But the real problem is the construction work which is going on. Diggers which drill through the front of the hotel each morning means you'll be in for an early start if you like it or not as the owners convert the hotel.<br /><br />Since 2 buildings are being joined with the purchase and renovation of the middle one the hotel is full of mice. After complaining about the mice in our room we were handed free breakfast tokens which allowed us to have breakfast with the mice which ran around the restaurant floor while we ate!<br /><br />A thoroughly unpleasant stay in what should be a 3 star hotel (which should really be closed whilst they carry out this level of renovation)<br /><br />My advise, holidays are precious, pay the extra and stay in the Marriot, Golden Tulip or the Jolly.
