Horrible place. Tiny, dirty and smelly rooms. We've seen 6 rooms, all are bad. Half of their rooms are in the basement. The building seem to have a problem with the old pipes that leak and cause wooden parts of the house to rot. Vary bad smell. We could not bear it and escaped to the other place.
Expensive - 175€/ night was absolutely not worth it. Room needs a renovation badly. Screaming couple next door, night was over at 4.30 in the morning... not having a night receptionist obviously didn’t help! Had to wait until 7.00am for the bill. Didn’t even get a discount... Location is good, close to inner city. Has potential, but needs improvement!
Great location for this hotel. It’s expensive but no more expensive than other Amsterdam Hotels. Clean with nice size room. Wouldn’t bother with breakfast as it’s overpriced for what it is and lots of food places on the doorstep. It’s right beside the park and it’s less than ten minutes walk to the museum square. Staff are very very pleasant and helpful and were most informative with maps etc at the ready. I would definitely stay here again.
While the staff is friendly and helpful and the location good, the hotel is badly in need of repairs and maintenance. The beds were terrible, the room smelled, and it was dirty. Very poor value for the cost. The photos on the web are very mid leading.
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. :)
