Relaxing vacation

Pleasant helpful and patient desk staff Considerate and helpful but not completely reliable as to information given. Accessible through the Amsterdam South train station and the 5 tram heading north to Amsterdam center, exit at Appollolaan street, 4 stops, walk West a block turn right and you are on the street of the hotel. Five minute walk. No gym facilities, no health spa, no pool. Cleanly and considerate room cleanup. Requested a 50 euro per day commitment for any extra purchases. Returned at the end of the stay

Classy Location, Classy Hotel

Nicely located on a side street near a pretty canal and across from the Hilton. Smiling, helpful staff, even smells good as you enter (probably has some sort of fragrance generator - seriously). Rooms average size but well appointed. Located in a pleasant, high rent district, short walk from two commercial streets with a good choice of restaurants. Only negative is extra cost for internet - $8 for an hour, about $15 for a day. It should be included for a hotel of this caliber.

perfect stay

This hotel is in a great spot, a bit outside the tourist areas but everything good is easily accessible. The rooms are always spotless and the staff is faultlessly polite and helpful, which is a big difference from some places in Amsterdam. I absolutely love it and it is the only place I stay in Amsterdam now. Thanks heaps!

NYE at Bilderberg Garden

Brilliant! Fantastically helpfull staff, lovely room, clean and tidy hotel. Lovely walk from hotel to museumplein, but plenty of trams to choose from. We are planning on returning very soon, we wouldnt even consider staying anywhere else. Bar drinks were very expensive though, 30 Euro for 2 double irish cream drinks seems excessive!

A 5 minute walk head to the local family run Italian restaurant, or make the most of a great local supermarket for fresh salads, meat, cheese and baguettes for a cosy night in

Good Stay in Amsterdam

Nice alternative next door to more expensive Hilton in quiet residential neighborhood. A bit out of city center, but easy walking/tram to all points of interest and services. Very comfortable room - only comment is no A/C and rooms tend to be hot (we were there in October/November). Pleasant staff. Didn't use restaurant, but looked nice (and on expensive side, but that's Amsterdam).

Quiet retreat in Amsterdam

The room was a nice size compared to other places I stayed. The hotel is spotless clean. A superieur comfortable large King size bed with beautiful high quality sheets and diverse pillows, not always the case in Amsterdam city when you single. There was tea and coffee making available in the room with a good size minibar. Dutch mini cookies waffles and a fresh green apple daily. The hotel is 5' walk from the tram line to Zuid sation where you can easily reach Schiphol Airport. The tram 5 also brings you to the center of Amsterdam. I rented a bicycle, provided at the hotel, to visit the Vondel park nearby and Amsterdamse bos (woods) which I enjoyed a lot.. I will go back to this hotel even if it's not a real 5 stars as other reviewers stated correctly, the service was five stars though.The Bilderberg Garden hotel's restaurant the Kersentuin is outstanding and the 16 Euros breakfast is worth every penny.

AWESOME

AWESOME. I was traveling through the UK, Netherlands and France with a friend and planned to meet my husband in Amsterdam. This hotel was our meeting point. Good stop to go with girlfriends or as a couple. In fact it was our favorite hotel of the whole trip! People were friendly, attentive, and first rate, but not stuffy. It was clean, modern, comfortable. I regret not trying the restaurant, but enjoyed the lounge and local- only 5-10 minute walk from the tram and in a quiet and attractive neighborhood that had more of a suburb feel which I like much better than the touristy center full of coffee shops and bars.
