Canals and Comfort

The hotel is located very conveniently to a variety of attractions, yet is relatively quiet and spacious. The staff were superb, and suggested excellent restaurants, bike rentals, unusual museums, etc. Thanks!

MBI in Amsterdam

Great location, excellent staff but rooms are small and a bit shop worn. The rooms are definitely in need of some upgrading to warrant the advertised quality level of the hotel (presumed to be a 5 star property). I would classify the property as a 3 star at best. Dining is problematic in that the food choices are small and lean toward "a bite to eat if say the weather was inclement and one did not wish to go out" to eat.

great experience with a minor let down

Great location at a great price. Hot water was non existent on the last day of pur trip and housekeeping accused me if wasting their time because I woke up at noon every day (hey its Amsterdam!!!). Otherwise staff was great and attentive. Very polite. The beds and pillows were fantastic. I could not think of any more I could've wanted in my stay at The Convent.

Great Location and Friendly Staff

Perfect location for exploring the city and traveling by train or bus to other areas outside of Amsterdam. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was a little small when compared to USA hotel rooms, but about average when compared with European hotels. Location was good for easy walking to restaurants, museums, and site-seeing locations.

Based on the price, we expected the room to be a little more spacious, but it was stiil comfortable. Lobby and Dining Room were very nicely appointed, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

AMAZING

We had just spent 2 weeks in South Africa and then an 11 hour plane ride to Amsterdam. We arrived to the most wonderful lobby and deskperson. We were early but she gave us the room and we loved it. Clean Bright Spacious and with robes and slippers. Close to everything as we only had a 24 hour layover. It made for a wonderful night before our 10 hour flight to Houston. WE WILL BE BACK!

Good location, comfortable beds!

Was only here for 1 night but was pleased by how quiet the rooms were and how comfortable the beds were! It was honestly my best sleep of my weeklong Europe trip. Simple to get to and from the airport and convenient to many bars and restaurants. Pricer than I normally go, but everything less expensive looked shoddy and hostel-like.

LOVED this hotel

The staff was wonderful. Breakfast was great (don't forget the special order included items). The room was very comfortable and clean. It was everything you could ask for in a hotel for travel for pleasure or business.
