Hotel Atlas Vondelpark3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The staff were great, the location is excellent, but sadly the hotel itself is in need of some attention and refurbishments. If the rating was just based on the hotel itself, it would have been a 2. Room very small and had a dank atmosphere. Poor value based on quality of hotel. Would not go back to this one.
We stayed at the Atlas Hotel for a few days The rooms smell bad, breakfast was lousy , the garden was so messy and the worst of all we saw rats walking in the garden in the middle of the day, we couldn't believe it but we read later on that this problem was there also last year!!!!!! The garden is more like a dump of materials and garbage. This is not accetable !!!!!!!
Nice and helpful staff, very decent breakfast. Good beds. The minor things which makes me rate it 4/5 instead of 5/5 are that our bathroom showed signs of ageing - neither run-down nor fresh - and that the breakfast was good but not great.
We are a young couple who stayed at Hotel Atlas Vondelpark for 4 nights. The Hotel is located just right next to Vondelpark, 10 mins walk away from Leidseplein and 5 mins walk away from Museumplein. Tram stops are just few minutes walk away. Airport shuttle bus is just 5 minutes walk away from the Hotel. Nevertheless the area next to the Hotel is quiet and not crowded. The Hotel has lift that is a good alternative to the staircase, especially for elderly people. Rooms are small but quite suitable for two persons. It was cleaned properly every day. The door to the room was hard to open, every time you have to apply a lot of force. Unfortunately, the casement was also broken. The bed and mattress were very comfortable, just like at home. There is a basket of fruits and tea and coffee amenities in the room. Bathroom is rationally designed and has all the necessary toiletries. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We had problems with the payment that caused us some problems and spoiled a little bit the overall impression of the Hotel. However, I think I will consider the Hotel while choosing accommodation for our next trip to Amsterdam.
I blame this experience on myself for not reading TripAdvisor reviews (I usually always do) before booking a hotel. Here is why: While the receptionist was probably one of the most accommodating, and helpful ones I've met, the hotel simply needs more upkeep. I've stayed in hotels houses in old heritage buildings and yet they never found this an excuse to neglect making the inside as clean and comfortable as possible. I've been to hostels which are much more presentable than this. I would have let the old greying carpet slide or the cheaply painted walls but the killer was the bed which had a dirt smudge under the pillow and the smell of a bed and pillows when you've not changed the sheets for more than a week when it's summer. Worse of all is the itch that me and my friend got a few minutes after laying down on bed. We didn't stay more than an hour. We've seen enough to pack our bags and literally run. Good thing we could book another hotel and was so surprised to get into an SPG hotel for just a few euros more. It is true that we didn't give them a chance to find us another room or perhaps change the sheets but I think we've seen enough. The Room at Atlas Vondelpark was prepaid and I tried to refund it but they politely declined. I didn't insist because that's the bargain I paid for when I booked a prepaid room in booking.com Just thought I'd let others know of my experience so they come into the hotel with open eyes unlike me who didn't read the reviews before coming in. It is true though that the location is excellent and the heritage building is awesome. The hotel just needs refurbishment and maybe they are working on it. But until then, I won't recommend this hotel.
Hotel is in a very respectable & quiet street, - and right next to Vondlepark. A short walk to Leidseplein. Staff were so friendly and helpful, -nothing too much trouble, and they're willing to go out of their way to ensure your stay is a good one. I would highly recommend staying here, and would do so again myself. :)
This hotel is in a lovely quiet area of Amsterdam perfectly situated for the museums and backing onto Vondelpark, a lovely green space. The hotel is old. our room was very small, only just big enough for twin beds, The shower was lovely, very big. Room was quiet at night, tea/coffee making facilities provided and a lovely touch was a small bottle of wine on arrival. Breakfast was magnificent - good selection of cold meats and cheeses, smoked salmon, and hot food, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, beans. Served in a small but very pleasant room. The best thing about this hotel was the staff on reception. Nothing was too much trouble and they were all always cheerful and friendly. Overall, great value for money.
We booked this hotel as it's location is perfect for Vondelpark and short walk to the museums. The room was old fashioned (painted dark orange with dark wood furniture) and dark with a window opening out onto the bin/waste area. The room was also quite close to reception- though we didn't have to walk up the steep staircase we did feel as though reception could hear us talking (large gap under the door too). The bathroom is small and old fashioned with a usless hairdryer. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. We hired bikes on the first day, and then wished we hired them on the first day instead- so much fun! This is a nice cheap hotel, close to a tram stop and expensive restaurants. I feel this hotel would benefit from a simple room modernisation, paint the walls light grey and add a few decorative cushions. The entrance lounge is a but ugly too- totally needs a declutter and a modern touch.
My younger brother (22) and I (40) took my dad to Amsterdam for his 70th birthday. We got three rooms here for two nights and it was a great choice. The location suited us perfectly. It's a 15minute walk to the beginning of the city centre but there are also plenty of trams and we had unlimited tram tickets so it was all good. It's right by the most beautiful park and if you don't fancy a hotel breakfast then there are a few places in walking distance. (We liked Bagels & Beans and the museum restaurant for breakfast). The rooms were great. They aren't huge but they have big windows and solid bathrooms and were spotlessly clean. The decor is tasteful, the beds are comfortable with super smart and clean linens and there are large fans in the rooms, which was great on the very hot days that we were there. Sure, we would have loved a mini-fridge and for them to have left a little bottle of water in the room instead of the individual bottles of merlot (for serious!) but this was a great value venue. However, the best thing about this pretty little hotel was the staff. Unfailingly cheerful and helpful they really made the place. I am glad we chose Hotel Atlas Vondelpark.
Hotel Atlas is situated in a beautiful area of Amsterdam, next to Vondelpark. The staff are very welcoming, helpful (and patient) which is brilliant for first time visitors like us! Our room was clean, included complimentary wine, water, tea and coffee and had a safe (no charge) Laundry was also changed daily. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of Amsterdam hospitalty at Hotel Atlas!
