Stayed here recently for 3 nights. Can't fault it . Staff were more than happy to help us and were extremely happy. Easy enough to get into city centre just jumped on the tram at the top of road. Will defiantly stay again x
I stayed here as part of a 2 night stag party last week and it was fantastic! The location is great as its a stroll away from where you want to be going. The rooms have everything you will need for 2 nights, but to be honest who goes Amsterdam to sit in their hotel room? Staff are helpful too and beds are super comfy, I would 100% recommend to stay here and I will be visiting again.
We 3 friends stayed for a long weekend and were very impressed with the friendly, helpful staff. They couldn't do enough for us and were genuinely lovely staff. So, thank you Tatiana, Hannah and Berry. Tatiana sorted out a few touristy problems for us. Hannah redirected us to a different tram stop when she was getting off a bus, otherwise we would have waited forever and maybe mIssed our flight home. She reacted instantly and we are very grateful. The beds were so comfy, the breakfast was good and the hotel had a lovely, warm, homely feeling. The hotel is within very easy walking distance to the museums, the numerous eating places and so many other interesting attractions. The regular trams, and buses were so cheap and easy to use but walking around was fun too! I would like to revisit Amsterdam and return to this Hotel. Huge thank you form us all.
This is a pleasant enough hotel but the location is terrible if you're looking to be near the centre of Amsterdam. Be prepared for a very long walk or a 10-15 minute tram ride to the centre. We took a taxi once from central station and it cost a crazy €24!! No shops or restaurants near the hotel. Room was shabby and dated, in fact the whole hotel was, but to be fair was exceptionally clean, the bathroom too. The walls are paper thin, you can hear everyone coming and going and every word that the guests next door are saying. You can even hear them flushing the loo and using sockets. This kept us awake a lot of the night. They don't tell you when you check in that you have to pre book breakfast so when we went down the next morning, there was no food available. Staff were friendly and overall it was clean but terrible location and a very noisy, disturbed stay.
My friend and I stayed at the hotel for a weekend and found it pleasant enough for the money we paid. The room was comfortable and clean with free soap and shampoo provided in the room. At the reception we were met by a very pretty girl who spoke five languages. Amazing!! The other receptionist next morning was also very attractive and made us welcome. The girl told us that they gradually renew the facilities in the hotel, since it is a 20th century historic Dutch building. At the bar they give free unlimited coffee, which I thought was a great idea. Five minute walk to the Iamsterdam sign and all museums, and the supermarket, the tram takes to the Red light district in 10-15 minutes, direct bus to the airport just behind the corner. I also met the guy the new owner who came to the room to fix out TV, he was polite and apologised for the inconvenience and explained that they only took over a couple of months ago and are now investing a lot of money into the place to make it a boutique hotel. Good luck with your plans!!!! You have a great building in the great location, if you improve all the facilities that will be a fantastic hotel! I will come back next year to stay here. Nice spot to explore great city of Amsterdam!
Stayed 22nd-28th jan 2017 First of all I would like to say the tram stop(ends at 12.30am) is take a right when you step out of the hotel walk to the junction and the stop is on your left on the main Rd number 16 takes you to central station (many other stops on the way)€7.50 for 24 hour ticket also can use it on bus and metro (same company) as we spent 1,1/2 days walking back and forward(it is a very long walk and like a maze if you don't know the area) Our overall stay at the sander hotel was good our 2nd room was clean and warm the receptionists were lovely expecially the 3 young girls. Our beds and pillows were clean and comfy. we had to ask for a kettle as there wasn't one in our room, the towels and room were cleaned regularly. We choose not to have breakfast i was told it was continental one. We booked for under £300 for the 6 nights for a GROUND FLOOR room(very cheap) which I can not complain at since we only booked 2days before arrival. We were put in an ATTIC room on arrival, there was a lift but the room wasn't very nice it was warm but had paint peeling off the walls and the curtains were filthy. Woke up on our first morning at 7.30am to the neighbours having building work done and very loud which lasted 3days, we spoke to the receptionist who did go next door to complain and also who moved us to the ground floor (dont know why i was not put in this room in the 1st place) which was overall louder but the room was a lot cleaner and better so we moved there. There was a yard out the back we was told by a receptionist we could go out there for cigarettes then the following day the blonde older lady which we were told was the manager said it was not possible because the neighbours don't like it so we had to smoke on the street. I would stay at this hotel again for the same price per night I feel as though the ground floor room was "I got what I payed for" I would feel very disappointed if I had payed a lot more for a less of a time as some residents have. 2 star not 3 beautiful area, volndel park 5 mins walk away. Supermarket 5 mins walk away iceskating and iamsterdam sign 10 mins walk away. Museum area.
A puddle on the bathroom floor made use of the lavatory and the washbasin very unpleasant. The nice receptionist said that she would have extra towels placed to absorb the water (no plumbers available on New Year's Eve). When I came back late in the night nothing had been done. The hotel has a shabby and not very clean carpet on the steep staircase to the rooms. The room was reminiscent of the Inturist hotels of Eastern Europe pre-1991. My complaint the next day was passed on to the new owner who offered me some minor immediate compensation and some pie in the sky: I can stay at the hotel for a 50% reduction of the price when it has become an attractive boiutique hotel in 2018.
I think the people staying next door already mentioned what happened in another review. I'd left the shower room open and the steam triggered the fire alarm, which prompted angry knocks on my door and a hotel employee calling me an idiot (pro tip, if you're trying to insult me in Dutch choose a word that isn't identical to the English one). Otherwise, room wasn't too bad, though a bit cold. However, it is absolutely not worth the money. I spent my last night in Amsterdam in an airbnb, where I got an entire warm cozy flat for much cheaper. Don't waste your money here, people!
Definite advantage of this place is that is very close to city center, approx 10 minutes walk to Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum. However as a place is far from being 3 star hotel. We've been located in the basement, where my 2meters tall friend was barely able to stand straight up. Stairs down, well... nearly fell down, that's how narrow they are. Overall, the service was good. Good place just to sleep.
Excellent location being close to tram and bus stops and walking distance to restaurants, but that was about all - reception service was good. The room was noisy inside - the creaking floor everywhere you stepped and out. - street noise and other room noise. The fire alarm went off because 1 of the guests had their shower door open and the steam triggered the alarm. The shower was so small and stuffy, no wonder they opened the door. Tea and coffee sachets with a kettle plug but no kettle? Bed was terrible, just a sponge not actually a mattress - ugh!!!
