Great Hotel!

Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, nice clean room, and a great rate. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam. The only minor thing we wish had been different was if the breakfast they offered had been more affordable. We ate next door for much less. Overall a FIVE STAR hotel in our book.

Decent Accommodations

The hotel was decent with very comfortable beds. It's also in a central location near the Centraal Train Station. It would be helpful to have free wireless internet for guests.

Good base for tourists

The breakfast buffet was really good! The suites are roomy and cool. However, some of the staff was not as polite and personable as I would like. One front desk man was curt. That said the rest of the staff was helpful.

Essentially, the place you want to be.

The wife and I stayed here for 3 days after a biz trip of mine in Rotterdam. An 8 min. walk from the madness that is the Amsterdam epicenter, the Convent affords you the quiet late night bars and coffee shops (NOT coffeehouses, lol)to wind down. Great little breakfast place next door, btw, called "bon appetit" or something. Staff is great, room was lovely. I'm 42, married, kids(with the in-laws this trip), and have been travelling on business and pleasure for about 25 years. And over that time, I've gotten a bit uptight about hotels. The Convent is essentially where you want to be while in Amsterdam.

Want to go back!

Both my 16 year old daughter and myself loved this hotel. We only stayed a night but want to go back and would stay there again. The beds were so comfortable with high loft soft down comforters. The room was typical in size of Euro hotels and the bathroom was nice. All in all it was a very lovely night

nice staff

They let us check-in early in the morning, which was great after an overnight flight to get there. The location was good, a little bit of a walk from the train station. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were ok, they had what you needed.
